Skinny Williams is one of the most prolific saxophone players in the Midwest. He is not just warm and a pleasure to work with he is an amazing performer and professional talented individual. I can’t wait to hire him for my next event. I highly recommend him to anyone that enjoys great live music!
Skinny Williams was perfect! He played like a dream. Everyone loved the music & many wanted his contract information. Thank you Skinny Williams for a wonderful afternoon!
Response from Skinny Williams Band:
Thanks Linda I had a wonderful time!
The Skinny Williams’ Band had an exceptional performance! They were contracted to perform at a fundraiser for our Alderman on Jul 22, 2021, & to say they were “the talk of the town” is an understatement. Still to this day, people are calling our office trying to figure out how they can connect with the Skinny Williams’ Band. They played the perfect genre of music, they kept the crowd interactive and yearning for more; no one wanted them to stop playing! Lovely band members, well-experienced in different genres, great professionalism while still being comfortable to perform full-out featuring awesome song choices!
The Law Offices of Theodore London would undoubtedly recommend booking The Skinny Williams’ Band for your next event; they will not disappoint! Again, thank you so much to The Skinny Williams’ band for help making the night as successful as it was! We will certainly be in touch for our next event/outing.

Very talented. Will definitely book again!
Everyone enjoyed. Amazing saxophone player. Thank you.
Was able to book Mr.Williams for my baby shower and even though it was last minute, he came and did his thing.
Will be booking him in the near future of course!
Book him now !!!!
Excellent talent I would hire again . Everyone enjoyed Skinny Williams performance. It was the highlight of my 60th Birthday Soirée,
I planned a romantic evening for my best friends wife. He wanted to do something special for her because she was pregnant. Skinny just made something good great! He made the dinner even more romantic with his saxophone. His music selection was perfect. He was everything I expected and more. My best friend and his wife loved him. I will definitely be using him again!!!
Skinny was excellent. He was on time. We were not and he gave us an excellent show with life time memories. Skinny is very pleasant and professional. He is an excellent Sax player that we will hire again.
Exceptional performance! Our guests loved every minute!
Skinny was perfect for our event. He was easy to work with and is very talented!
Mr. Williams was more than amazing!! He made my partners birthday and experience she will never forget! Thank you for all you did! We will be booking again!!
Words are not enough to express how amazingly Skinny Williams Band performance was. I wish I could have kept in longer, but it was for my sister's 50th, so I didn't want to interfere any further in her plans. She was amazingly surprised as skinny Williams went beyond what I expected. Gave him a playlist, especially with Michael Buble, as she loves him. We will refer him at our party and everyone asked about him. He was ahead of time, very pleasant and polite. I will say this, there was no disappointment whatsoever! You can count on him. He is absolutely amazing! I will call on him again, and possibly with his band. If you're looking for a saxophone player, he is simply amazing, look no further. Thank you, Skinny, for an amazing and memorable time.
