Working with Jonathan was a wonderful experience. I had never booked a saxophone player before and he was very helpful and informative—answering every question I had. His communication and customer service were great. He played all the songs I requested and it was a beautiful sound to my ears. My Husband was very happy with this surprise addition to his birthday party. Jonathan also engaged with the crowd—many who had never seen a saxophone player up close and personal before. It was truly a one-of-a-kind experience!

Jonathannnn out did himself and never will I ever call upon another Sax player because Jonathan is “ All you need to get by” My family knew from the beginning after watching Jonathan’s videos he would perform.Jonathan delivered an outright concert ;he engaged with our guest danced and serenaded them in every note.

The Jonathan experience will be one to remember.

I can not thank Jonathan enough for all he has done for this event he went above and beyond and if you need a saxophonist, book Jonathan now do not waste your time on anyone else!
Jonathan was great! My husband and I used him for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour this month. He is very knowledgeable on what songs would be great to play at the wedding and had a personal call with me a few days before to discuss. The day of he was on time and helped the wedding go smoothly. Many guests told me how he loved him at the cocktail hour. He was on his feet constantly playing great jazz renditions to songs. Overall great experience.
Simply the best. From start to finish, Jonathan McCreary and his team (Bridge 2 Legacy band) provided an incredible live music experience at our wedding. We can't recommend them highly enough - their professionalism, attention to detail, and sheer talent exceeded our expectations. We lost count of how many times guests complimented on what we were told was the best wedding band ever which I truly feel is an understatement.
We worked closely with booking agent Ms. Baker to customize not only our set list but the type of musicians we would like for the band (we were lucky enough to have saxophone, bass, drums, keyboard, vocalist - Adrina has the most incredible voice ever!). All the band members were so talented, they made our wedding night unforgettable. Ms. Baker was receptive to all of our feedback and incredibly responsive via email. We felt heard each step of the way. We had constant communication with Jonathan and his booking agent which made us feel so comfortable - we knew we could trust them to deliver an amazing experience and they did not disappoint.
Jonathan and his band bring such a magnetic energy to the event; we had guests dancing the entire night and the transitions between songs were just seamless. Everything we asked of them was executed perfectly. Do not hesitate to book Jonathan and his crew - it'll be the most stress-free decision you'll make for your event.
Booking Jonathan was a seamless process. He arrived at the venue early to set up and was extremely flexible with the space. He has a great ear for music, so he knows how to play any style. The guests really enjoyed his performance. He added class to my event.
Jonathan was excellent. He was very kind and sympathetic to me and the type of event we were having. He expressed his condolences and said he was honored to play at my daughters celebration of life. I was very appreciative of him and those kind words. I gave him a few songs that my daughter loved and he built his playlist around them. The music was beautiful and appropriate. He was very professional. He arrived on time, set up and began playing right away. I would certainly book him again.

Johnathon’s performance was a perfect addition to my proposal on Sunday. I was overwhelmed with emotion as he played one of my favorite songs while my fiancé and I walked up the red lit staircase. The engagement was epic and thanks again for being apart of our beautiful moment in time.
Did a private dinner for my mom and family. Jonathan was on time and courteous. Catered to all our needs with a smile.
Thanks again Jonathan
Jonathan was great!!!! He learned the song I proposed to my wife to 5 years ago. It was an amazing experience. The way he feels the music is incredible. Book him if you want a very professional and romantic experience.
Jonathan was amazing Saturday night at a wedding I attended. I highly recommend him for any event where you want your guests saying ‘wow’!
Everyone loved him and his energy, talents, and personality! He kept us going for hours. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us!
My son has played sax for 5 years so I’m a huge fan of the instrument and now of Jonathan.
Amazingly talented! John was so professional from beginning to end my family and my boyfriends family all adored him. He was so kind and even took some requests! I’m still dancing along to the videos of him. You won’t regret hiring him and I’m already waiting for the next event/party to hire him again.
Cannot express enough how amazing Jonathan was for our wedding. The energy he brought was great. I would hire him again in a heart beat.

Let me set the scene, beautiful evening... bright lights...glowing "marry me" marquee letters sign and Jonathan the Saxophonist playing some of the most beautiful tunes I have ever heard! This was my proposal and it was unforgettable! Jonathan paid close attention to us and kept the songs coming for the entire night. He was patient and answered all of my fiancé's questions. I was in awe of how amazing and talented he is. Will definitely be booking him again!
Jonathan played for our neighbor’s high school graduation. Our needs were simple; one song as he walked down their driveway followed by Pomp and Circumstance as we stood in the driveway and finally a song as we walked back out. I was looking for short and sweet to commemorate the event and Jonathan more than delivered!
Johnathan is a wonderful musician! Very professional. He was the highlight of the evening as he moved us all with his music! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Could not ask for more ... Best experience ever ..Jonatan was hired to play at my 50 Bday dinner ! Absolutely FABULOUS.. The selection of music was very good , he included some Latin music to make my bdays celebration more special ! HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Not only was the performance top quality but it was personal and meaningful he went above and beyond to make sure my girlfriend enjoyed her birthday during Covid -19, definitely will book again for future events
Jonathan performed a soulful funky solo Jazz Birthday party and was fabulous. Gracious and engaging he thrilled the guests with R&B, ballads and cool jazz. Highly recommend Jonathan McCreary for any event large or small.
Jonathan was an absolute delight. He was an incredible birthday surprise and came to our block and played for the entire neighborhood. He played everything from Bruno Mars to Alicia keys to Pharrell and is a gifted sax player. Not only that but he was extremely personable, lit the crowd up and had everyone dancing the entire time. I will use Jonathan again and highly recommend him.
Jonathan was amazing! He did a great job playing the best music for our guests. We truly appreciate his professionalism, his remarkable talent, and fantastic attitude.
Johnathan is simply the best...he played at my wedding on Nov 8, 2019 at the Chateaubriand..Johnathan played while I was walking down the isle and at my reception.. my guests wasn't expecting a saxophone player..so having Johnathan there playing put the icing on the cake.. Johnathan did what he was supposed to do and more...Johnathan is very reliable, humble, trustworthy and simply the best..his work speaks for him..and his price is very reasonable..I would definitely recommend Johnathan if anyone is looking for a talent musician. I promise..you will not be disappointed..Johnathan me and husband appreciate all that you did for us to make our special day a memorable day... we will definitely be using you again in near future...Thank you!!
Jonathan was absolutely amazing. Thank you again you made the IG JT that more special.
Jonathan was amazing! He is professional, collaborative and incredibly talented. He made our our wedding very special and our guests couldn’t stop talking about how great our wedding was.
Jonathan played at my wedding and my guest has been raving about him since! They had a ball and loved him. He gave my big day exactly what it needed! And he’s so amazing at his craft. Book him for your next event and you won’t be disappointed!
Response from Jonathan McCreary:
Thank you so much for this amazing review! Happy I could make the day even more memorable and #congrats!
A true professional
And lovely guy !
We used Jonathan McCreary at our Queens Book Fair on July 13, 2019 and we can't recommend him enough! We assisted many of his performances in the past and we just knew that we needed to have him present that day.
Jonathan did an awesome job bringing musical entertainment at the fair. He was very professional and absolutely amazing to work with from beginning till the end. He took the time to make sure that his musical selection reflected our event style. He cared about the subtle details and showed that he wanted to make our event exceptional. And everyone had such a great time listening to him.
Jonathan was one of the best decisions we made and we are already looking forward to him being a part of our next event.
I hired Jonathan to play at my fiancés' 30th birthday celebration. He exceeded all expectations by bringing a professional sound to the room that enamored our guests. Genuine person with a love for his craft that shines through. Music selection was varied and fit the mood of the room as the night progressed. Awesome time, thanks again, Jonathan!
After a brief conversation, I hired Jonathan for a ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony at my church. Jonathan exceeded our expectations with his talent and presentation. He is humble, genuine and exudes a great spirit. We diffidently will be using him for future events.
Response from Jonathan McCreary:
Thank you so much for the review and allowing me to be apart of that wonderful occasion.
I booked Jonathan for a friend’s proposal to his girlfriend. He was fantastic!!! Highly recommend. Very courteous, professional and responsive.
I hope after reading this review you won’t hesitate to book with Jonathan!
This was one of the best decisions I made in planning my event. I was very leery about hiring help from this website because it was my first time and didn’t know what to expect. I read through all the reviews and profiles but still was not certain this would be something I wanted to do. I can not express enough how happy I am with hiring Jonathan.
From the time I sent the request, Jonathan was quick to respond. He answered Every question I had. He was patient, communicative, and versatile in his musical catalog.
Upon arrival to my event, his time management was phenomenal. He came right in, assessed the area for him to set up and began his set list. He engaged my guests beautifully. He has class, humility, and charm. All things to love as you listen to his performance. A complete surprise to the afternoon. He is Amazing! I hired him as help but he left as family. I will book him for any event I have. Thank you, Jonathan!!!
Jonathan is a very talented being, he embodies pure and raw talent. He was a part of making a perfect moment just that; perfect. He was kind, polite and very friendly! Highly recommend! Thank you x 1000!
Jonathan was everything I imagined and more. Crowds formed once he started playing because he’s simply that good. I wouldn’t use anybody else if I ever needed a saxophone in the future. My proposal was simply perfect and Jonathan was a huge part of that. Not only did he handle the music, but he also helped me with staging a book for me that I wanted to give to my future fiancé. If you’re looking for a true professional, who is easy to work with, look no further than Jonathan McCreary.
I was surprised last night with this talented musician, and it was amazing! Thanks for making my night extra special!
Jonathan recently performed holiday songs at the St. John's Episcopal Hospital Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony in Far Rockaway, NY. He is extremely talented and impressed the many hospital staff members and community members who attended. We highly recommend him!
Jonathan added such so much to the ambiance of an elegant evening. He was professional, friendly and welcoming to the honorees, as well as to all of the invited guests. We enjoyed his artistry immensely. I'd like to invite him back for another one of our affairs! Excellent!
Jonathan is an incredibly gifted musician. I have heard him play the saxophone many times and look forward to every opportunity. Recently, he was hired by me to play at a judicial induction ceremony at QueensvCivil Court for a newly elected judge. His rendition of the National Anthem was so moving that those in attendance gave him a very enthusiastic round of applause and commented after that his performance was a highlight of the event. He also played beautifully before and after the start of the event. He arrived on time and was the consummate professional. I would highly recommend him!!!
Jonathan was amazing and I highly recommend hiring him for your next event! He was professional, on-time, friendly, and a wonderful saxophonist. Everyone enjoyed his music and he quickly adapted to the crowd and played exactly the right kind of music. He definitely added to the experience of my event and was very easy to communicate with. Just let him know your vision for your event and he will make it happen!
I rate Mr. Jonathan McCreary, saxophone player 5 stars, he performed at my wedding ceremony and the Cocktail hour. My family and friends loved his smooth love songs at the wedding ceremony and his smooth jazz tunes at the Cocktail hour. Prior to my wedding, he was in communication with me via e-mail with song selections and logistics. I would recommend him based on his professional and his performance for your upcoming event.
Response from Jonathan McCreary:
I am completely humbled by your amazing review!
It is extremely encouraging, it was a pleasure working with you I would love to join you for any upcoming events that you have.
Till next time.
Jonathan was a key producer in making sure the proposal was extremely magical. He was able to recommend the perfect song when I had no idea what to request. He was punctual and professional. He asked questions to guarantee that he understood what my vision was. Do yourself a favor and book this guy!
He make the party , we would never use another saxophone player besides him. Just a beautiful person . I can’t say enough about him . A true professional.
Words can’t express how pleasantly surprised I was. Jonathan did more than I asked. He was on time an his talent will leave you speechless and wanting more. Everyone asked for his number after My event. He vibed so well with a band I hired. The band and johnathan didn’t know one another but you would have thought they did. The best money you can spend for what you get. I would hire him again in a heart beat.
I was throwing my mother a milestone party and the band was amazing! They showed up for rehearsal prepared and willing to do whatever it took to make the event great. On the day of the event, they came professionally dressed and wowed the crowd with their professionalism as well as their sound. I had a few children singing for the event. They were kind and accommodating even to them. Thanks for doing a great job and putting my Mom's event over the top with your presence.
We hired Jonathan to perform some solo pieces for my mother's surprise 60th party. From the clips he sent, I was comfortable enough knowing that he'd be good but was pleasantly surprised at how good actually was.
Not only was Jonathan good at his craft (Great style, great vibe), he was also very professional. Jonathan remained in constant communication with us and was open to a vast array of songs. Once he got a good feel for the genre and crowd that he'd be performing for, he provided a few selections that were even better.
When people were complimenting me about him and asking me about who he is and where I found him, I knew I made the right decision. Had I known how good Jonathan was beforehand, I would have hired the whole band. I'd highly recommend him.
With a nice and humble spirit and an amazing and rich tone, he has the ability to play beautifully. We were very happy we hired him. Highly recommended...
He is a musician that needs no introduction. He will amaze you if you allow him too... Strongly recommended...
Eloquent soloist, extremely talented and has a true gift. Very professional with wide variety of music. Definitely recommended...
Jonathan has a keen sense of musicality. He understands music and provides acoustically pleasant listening experience. He is the consummate professional and this is exemplified in with his articulation to his craft and presence.
