This past November our son got married in Fort Wayne Indiana. Not only did we host a rehearsal dinner but our son and his bride had a very large reception. We secured the services of Mark Armstrong, The Sax Guy to the delight of our guests at the rehearsal dinner and for the appetizer and cocktail portion of the wedding reception. Truly, one of the best moves we made in trying to provide a wonderful experience for our rehearsal dinner guests and the wedding guests. In both cases, I repeatedly heard how they wish Mark could have kept on playing and what an extraordinary sax player Mark is. Of course, we already knew that which is why we secured his services. His fees are so reasonable, his personality perfect and his music second to none. I encourage people to add Mark and his musical gifts to their venues particularly if they want to both delight and entertain their guests in a truly memorable way!!!!!
Our guests loved having The Sax Guy at our awards dinner for our 2018 National Sales Meeting at the Indianapolis Artsgarden. Mark provided a great environment and helped us spice up our awards program. He was very prompt and professional and understanding when we ran over a bit. Would definitely recommend to others!
Working with Mark was easy, professional, and everything went according to plan. He is flexible, amusing, approachable, and enjoyed meeting our guests and talking with everyone. His talent is amazing and his music adapted for our party was perfect. He MADE our party flow with movement and happy moments. It was a lot of fun and we would recommend him for any size event that wanted quality entertainment with a lot of CLASS!
We had an afternoon open house and outdoor party to wind down the summer. Mark-the Sax Guy-provided his smooth and pleasing jazz and pop. Mark's music set the ambiance for a fun and entertaining afternoon with friends. I highly recommend him.
We hired The Sax Guy to accompany a wine tasting event that we threw at our country club. He was wonderful! The music he selected was perfect with the wine tasting event and made an atmosphere great for dinner and mingling. Our members loved him and said he provided a great ambiance without being overpowering. He has played here several times in the past and is always a hit. We can't wait to have Mark join us again at future events. He is the perfect performer for any gathering!
Mark played at our annual holiday party in our Zionsville home. All of our guests were completely impressed. He made the event very special and was really able to bring the Christmas spirit!!! For weeks my wife and I have received compliments on how special they thought the evening was and much of that was attributed to "The Sax Guy"!!!
We selected The Sax Guy to enhance the ambiance of our company holiday networking event with top notch music.

Once you hear him, you'll think of using him for future business events, family gatherings and special occasions.
We had The Sax Guy play at our wedding Open House and, as we expected, he did not disappoint. His sets were spot on. His selections were lively and kept our crowd of over 100 guests tapping their toes when they were not on their feet dancing.
Fortunately for us, the weather allowed for him to play outside on our deck and it couldn't have been better.
Would definitely recommend The Sax Guy and look forward to having him return!!!

An recent evening of business and pleasure was given just the perfect topper with the talents of The Sax Guy. Mark is an unbelievable sax player whose smooth sounds make you forget you're conducting business at all. You just want to sit back and enjoy a glass of wine and good conversation and let his music take you away. I had several people ask me about him and I know of at least one who planned to contact him for an event. Personally, I found myself actually thinking about where I could book him next! I highly recommend this incredible talent. He provides the ambience that will take any event up a notch, and when the evening is over, you'll find yourself wishing it weren't because he'll leave you wanting more. He's THAT good!

We treated our neighbors for an evening of music. We had Mark play for our pool party one mid-afternoon/evening August 2014
His repetoire of music bridges many genre's, making him very versatile in playing a straight play list or taking requests from over 3+ hours of variety.
We have invited him back again this year (2015).
If you are looking for a great musician, try Mark Armstrong.
Well organized in the planning, leaving nothing out; his mgr not afraid to communicate. Wide selection of songs & good suggestions on song selections for different parts of the evening. The Sax Guy's expertise in sax playing is outstanding! Easy to dance to music. He is very professional and adaptable. Guests commented after that the music was great and they were impressed! They said, "much better than a DJ!" and "different, but really good!" Realize that the bride/groom were in their 50's.
I was planning a 50th Birthday party for my boy friend and I saw The Sax Guy playing at a local restaurant. So I went up to his wife and asked if he would do a private party and he did. I was so happy that it worked out that the one night that he was free that weekend he could play for my surprise party. i didn't tell anyone that he would be there and you should have seen there faces when they all arrived. My boy friend was in shock what I had done for him. Mark plays all the good oldies and the young hip good old dance music to just sitting back and enjoying the atmosphere. Just a WONDERFUL Time!!!! I would highly recommend him for any event.
