A lovely evening, complimented by beautiful music! Kathleen is very versatile and holds so much talent. Her guitar playing and vocals were mesmerizing, and her saxophone playing was sensational! Her performance was exactly what we required for the event and I will recommend her to all my friends!

  • Can we chose how much of each instrument we want? For example if we want 80% guitar and vocals and 20% Saxophone? 

Yes! This is absolutely fine, Kathleen has had many requests previously where clients have wanted a particular structure to the performance.

  • Can Kathleen Amanda play her saxophone without backing tracks? 

If you feel you would prefer Kathleen to perform without the backing tracks this is possible. If you are interested in Kathleen purely as a saxophonist please check out 'Kathleen Plays Saxophone' on this website!

  • Can Kathleen Amanda take requests?

On guitar this is usually possible! On saxophone it can be a little more complex, the reason being that Kathleen plays along to a pre-recorded backing track it is usually hard for her to be able to reconstruct the whole band sound on a backing track ready for the event as she does not have the appropriate recording facilities. Though apart from this Kathleen is able to perform the song without the backing track which can be far more suited for some events as it produces as a far more intimate sound. Please contact Kathleen Amanda if you have any question regarding requests.

  • Why should I have Kathleen Perform at my wedding?

Kathleen Amanda provides many different types of performances suitable for weddings, ranging from performing during the reception to providing the first dance music. Kathleen's service is very popular during the drinks reception and/or wedding breakfast and can really add that extra sparkle to your day!
