My name is Jonathan McCreary and I am a saxophonist with over 20 years of experience playing Gospel, Smooth Jazz, R&B and Neo-Soul. Some of my events have included: Weddings, engagement proposals, corporate events , religious events, lounge parties and jazz café's.
I take extreme pride in my craft and seek to share my gift with the world.
Whether it's a tribute to love, a rock steady groove or a true gospel experience with a Soulful sound my sax and I provide sweetness for the ear and music for the soul.
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 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!!!
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.
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.
Jonathan is a very talented being, he embodies pure and raw talent. He was apart of making a perfect moment just that; perfect.
He was kind, polite, and very friendly! Highly recommend! Thank you x 1000!
I was surprised last night with this talented musician, and it was amazing! Thanks for making my night extra special!
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 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.
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.
