All the very best from both of us, Andrzej and Jo x' Jo & Andrzej Mialkowski (Church Restaurant, Northampton)
'We would like to thank you for the most beautiful music at our Wedding. All morning I didn't cry but as soon as you started playing that was it, floods of tears! Thank you again. Love the Yussufs xXx' Whitney Yussuf (Pembrook Lodge, Richmond Park)
'We were looking for a saxophonist for our daughter's wedding and after listening to several artists on-line, we decided that the tone and style of Ian's saxophone was superior to the others. His communication up to the wedding was excellent and he is a very friendly individual. He had a fantastic range of music and played to our guests during the reception drinks and photographs. He was well received by everybody who thoroughly enjoyed listening to his music. We would not hesitate in recommending Ian Sax to anybody requiring a first-class act.' Sandra Silvertsen (Stock Brook Manor, Essex)
'Where do I start... I found Ian on the internet as I was searching for a sax player for our wedding, I listened to his music on his page and was immediately taken back by it! He is truly amazing and he made our wedding so so special! Everyone loved it and it was beautiful to listen to as we arrived at the venue and also when we sat down for the wedding breakfast. Ian got everyone up dancing and our day couldn't have gone anymore perfect. Thank you so much! HIGHLY RECOMMEND :-)' Georgina and Mike (Aston Hall, Sheffield)
'Ian once again I can't thank you enough. You were amazing and we never had any doubts about you. Thank you for being a massive part in our special day.' Ibrahim and Yasmin (Three Rivers country club, Essex)
'I just wanted to let you know how delighted I was that we chose you to play at our wedding. You are such amenable chap and your music is fabulous but I'm biased as I love saxophone music! For a totally unbiased recommendation I pass on the comment from Dean who was not really bothered either way about having any additional music and if I'm honest saw it as an extra cost, but he actually told me that having you there was the icing on the cake. You really did help to make a beautiful day even more so with the added bonus of making the atmosphere so relaxed. He was absolutely chuffed that you played for us. (We women know what's right lol).' Liz and Dean (Frimley Hall Hotel, Surrey)
'So so glad Ian came recommended to us! Not only is he a down-to-earth, genuinely nice guy, he is a superb musician and we are so lucky to have come across him. He set the mood perfectly throughout the day and all of our guests were saying how good he was! We'd really hope that we'd get the opportunity to use him again. From the bottom of our hearts thank you Ian, you made our day truly special!
- You were absolutely fantastic ! ' Lizzie & Chris Ellis (Westernhanger Castle, Kent)
Mel loved you, l loved you, all the guests loved you! We'll definitely be calling on you again when we have a big family event on.
So many people said it was a great touch for the evening and loved the fact it was a surprise! Funny thing is, Mel didn't even realise there was a live sax until you were standing in front of her! Lol' Tarkan Ahmet (Quendon Hall, Essex)
Not only one of the best saxophonists we've ever heard (So many guest said they could listen to you all day & night) but also one of the most friendliest, nicest, kindest gentleman we've come across. So accommodating. Amazing saxophonist. Really made our wedding complete...'
Gemma Pilbeam (Little Hermitage, Kent)
'Thank you very much... my daughter, Dionne, and her now husband Simon absolutely enjoyed the surprise! I had so many people at the wedding saying how good you were and asking how I found you... We are so pleased that we booked you personally - very professional and just perfect for my daughter's wedding. Wishing you all the best, and will keep you in mind for whenever we need to book a saxophone player again, and obviously will recommend you to friends and family.' Deborah & Mark Oakley (Cliffs Pavilion, Southend - on - Sea)

'Thank you Ian for playing at our wedding, you were fantastic and exactly what we had imagined. Having a Sax player was one of the first things we wanted when we started to plan our wedding as we knew it would be perfect for the type of day we wanted. It was really important to us to find the right person as the Sax is very close to our hearts so it was a big decision. You are such a lovely person and went out of your way to ensure everything was perfect including learning a song for us!!! Which was brilliant, thank you. We are really grateful to you for making our day so special, We wouldn't change a thing!! Thank you Ian, The Murrays xx' Louise & David Murray (Essendon Country Club, Herts.)

We will be recommending him to all of our friends and families in the future. Thank you Ian for making our wedding day so special. Harriet and Paul (The Grange Country House, Middlesex)
Ian was simply amazing! Fantastic communication leading up to the event and he even learned a few extra songs for us. On the day he was flawless!
He gave us memories that will last a lifetime. Ian is a complete professional and an incredible saxophone player.

'I'm so glad I took the risk and booked you at our Wedding Reception... Although our Wedding was small & low-key, your playing gave just the ambiance we hoped for. I did not expect it to be so professional and to make such an impact! Having you play was a surprise for my husband, who is a saxophonist himself and he was delighted with your performance.' Jean & Simon Kent-Booth
'Just a note to say a huge 'Thank-You' for your most professional service that you provided on our Wedding day... You played a very large part in making both mine and Julies Big Day truly memorable.

'Absolutely fantastic. A lovely guy, brilliant entertainer. Thank you soo much for making us feel at ease on our wedding day. It was really magical having you there.' Charley Everett
'If you are looking for the perfect entertainer for your "Special Event", LOOK no further Ian Solidsax is your man. It's a task and a half to go on the internet and find what you are looking for, in this case, I felt I had struck Gold. I booked Ian as a surprise for my husband to be, for our Wedding Party. I spoke with Ian and explained how very fussy my husband to be, was about music and a particular song by Luther Vandross, I was after to be played for the first dance, Ian completely delivered, the tune I was after which my husband is still talking about today and for him was a "Jaw-dropping moment" which I cannot thank Ian enough for. The whole evening was tailored to meet with all our requirements. I will be forever grateful for finding such a talented person to be with us on such a fantastic night.' Deb and Steve
