Richie Plays Saxophone was absolutely brilliant for our wedding. He played as guests were arriving, when we walked down the aisle, the signing of the register and the drinks reception. He was outstanding, playing with brilliant tone and making the guests feel truly relaxed. We have had so many compliments from our guests too about him. Richie was really flexible and helpful with what we wanted and happy to suit his set to our requirements, we would definitely recommend him to anyone. Thanks!
I Would like to say how great Richie sounded and his style amd performamce was loved by us and all our guests. Thank you Richie for helping my day go as planned, and making our wedding special and unique.
Richie was absolutely fantastic. My wedding guests thoroughly enjoyed his set. Everything ran smoothly from the point of contact with Warble Entertainment right up until the big day.
Richie was absolutely superb!! I’m so glad he was able to be apart of my wedding day!
Firstly, thank you to Jez at Warble Entertainment. You provided a wonderful service and made sure everything went smoothly. Thank you to Richie! Our saxophonist for the evening. You were amazing. You played beautifully and our guests loved you. Amazing selection of songs to choose from to suit all tastes. We will most definitely use Warble Entertainment again in the future should the need arise and most definitely pick Richie should we need a saxophonist. So classy!! Thank you all so very much. I will for sure be recommending you to all our friends and family.
Richie played at our wedding (August 2018) and was perfect - he got our guests up dancing during the day and played our chosen song perfectly for my wife to walk down the aisle - definitely a highlight of our wedding. Thanks again Richie!
Richie was amazing. He got everyone up dancing and all our wedding guests said how much they enjoyed his set. Brilliant- thank you.
Thank you Richie. You met our expectations. What a lovely talented guy you are. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you. All our family and friends enjoyed your sessions, you made our party a big hit. :)
It was great having Richie play during the drinks reception at our wedding. Great selection of songs and he sounded amazing!
Richie was just fantastic. Our guests loved him and his music, set list and the vibe for the day brilliantly. We would thoroughly recommend him to for events and hoping I get to see him at another wedding soon.
Absolutely amazing !!! Wish we booked him for longer.
It was a great afternoon and Richie joined in with others at the event.
Absolutely fantastic. Thoroughly recommended to get any party started. Just book him!
Richie played beautifully. We have received lots of positive feedback about how he lifted the atmosphere with his music. Richie turned up on time and was accommodating on the day. Would definitely recommend.
Fantastic entertainment!! Warble Entertainment were brilliant at keeping us informed and Richie himself was easily contactable and accommodating to our requests. The actual sax playing was amazing and kept a lively hen party going!
Richie came and played at my other half's 60th in January, he was on time, played with the DJ and played tracks everyone loved. He did a fab job and I would recommend him in a heartbeat - he made mine and everyone's night! Go Richie!
Richie was wonderful! :) We would definitely use him again!
We booked Richie for our wedding cocktail reception, based purely on his reviews and brief video we saw. It turned out to be a great decision! His music repertoire was diverse - ranging from pop to jazz to R'n'B to Bollywood and we were spoilt for choice when choosing our top songs for him to play on the night. Our guests all thoroughly enjoyed his performance and we received so many compliments. He also played during our first dance and at the start of our reception, which was a lovely experience. Overall, we were really pleased with Richie and I would not hesitate to book him for your wedding or party event!
Admittedly, I hadn’t communicated a great deal prior to wedding about what I wanted from Richie but he just turned up and read the room perfectly. He gauged the vibe perfectly and just jammed. Everybody absolutely loved him! Not only is he a legend on the sax he’s also a great bloke. Highly recommended.
Richie was so easy going and did everything exactly the way we asked him to. Richie played two sets over very different genres; Motown and then house, and he excelled in both. He was very interactive on the dance floor and his presence was just the right balance. Everyone said he was the highlight of the wedding. I was nervous about booking but am so glad I did. Thanks Richie!
I just want to say thank you so much, Richie was amazing! He played the sax amazingly, everyone said how great he was, and how well he played! He was punctual and professional... thank you.
Lovely guy, great tunes - positive energy and got everyone dancing as hoped! Brilliant! Great array of music. Very pleased indeed.
The admin side from Warble Entertainment was excellent and Richie was simply perfect! We had a wonderful evening because Richie’s play made it so special for us and our guests... He was brilliant!
Absolutely incredible turnout from Richie. He created a beautiful atmosphere with his playing and was able to set the perfect tone. 5 star rating all the way. Thank you for making our special day even better.
Well what can I say. Richie you made our night. We had a 50th garden party at home and Richie was fantastic. I’ve had so many messages from the guest saying how talented you are and what a wonderful guy.
Richie is amazing! Really got the Party started. Wonderful selection of music and the whole party loved it. Richie plays the sax and clarinet and comes highly recommended. Thank you.
A fantastic performance in which everyone fully enjoyed.
Richie performed to a very high standard, captivating his audience and keeping everyone fully entertained. Very well done!
Richie communicated with me via email and phone very professionally. On the day, he arrived to set up when he said he would and was absolutely amazing. He was the perfect addition for our big day and was really friendly too. I would highly recommend Richie.
Just want to say a massive big thank you from Pedro and myself. Richie was amazing. He went above and beyond for our special day. Excellent - Five Stars!
Excellent service received. All queries responded to promptly. Booking process was very easy. On the day Richie was very friendly and really accommodating, he did a fantastic job during both our wedding ceremony and the wedding reception periods! Definitely made the day all that bit more special - will be recommending for others to use without a doubt for any event that they'd like a professional saxophonist to play at - Thank you so much!
Richie was amazing! He played our wedding reception, the first 45 minutes of which was set on a terrace, with a great selection of tracks and set the mood beautifully. The second 45 minutes, he kicked off our party playing with a DJ which was fantastic. All the guests said how brilliant he was. Would definitely recommend him, he was awesome!!!
We just want to thank you for organising our booking with Richie. The service you gave us was excellent. Richie went down a storm - first class and lovely guy. Many of our guests asked us how we knew him and obviously told them, via booking with you. Would not be surprised if you get more bookings for Richie from our friends in the future - great Sax player.
Excellent playing of the saxophone. Very polite, punctual and everyone commented on how great he was.
Richie was amazing!! He has so much talent, he played beautifully. Every single guest commented on how blown away they were by his music. We had such a fab day & Richie was apart of making it so special. Thank you so much.

Richie was amazing at our wedding - he performed solo for 45 minutes and then jammed along with our DJ for a further 90 minutes and was superb - he had the dancefloor filled and we received lots of compliments. Thank you Richie for making our wedding so memorable! Dawn & Scott.

Richie is a charming brilliant Saxophonist, just listening to his much loved sax tones on a sax that has covered some miles and and many happy hours with him was just bliss, everyone would have sat and happily listened to him all night. Thank you Richie X
Richie came as a recommendation from Nicola at Warble Entertainment and she was spot on! Richie judged the mood of the party very well (not easy when there are 100+ people aged 4-94!) and Uptown Funk at the end finished things off in style. Highly recommended!
Lovely guy, very good at what he does.
Richie is a very talented musician and played an excellent few sets at our garden party. He picked the audience well and tailored the music around them with minimal input from us which was great since we were running around trying to keep our guests fed and watered! Would definitely hire Richie again.

Richie was absolutely awesome! Our guests loved the vibe he created and his extensive choice of songs to play - he's truly professional and couldn't have been more prepared for our big day. The fact that he is a pleasure to deal with is only the icing on the cake - no pun intended!

Hi Richie & Warble, just wanted to send a quick note to say how fantastic Richie performed at our wedding. He was incredibly professional and by the time that we both arrived back from church was already performing, which was a massive help for my wife and I, especially with everything else going on! One incredible memory I have from the day is when my wife and I were having pictures and you started playing Alicia Keys 'Empire State of Mind' and we both just turned to each other saying how amazing it was. Everyone came up to us and said how brilliant you were and we really couldn't recommend you highly enough. Thanks again, Sarah and Ben
Thank you so much to Richie who was absolutely wonderful. I would have loved to have sat down and listened to his whole set properly instead of running around!! Everyone commented how brilliant they thought he was so thank you so much! Sarah & Ben
Richie is a brilliant Sax player, everybody loved him and when he played everyone got up and danced.
Richie was absolutely fantastic. He arrived at our reception venue and set up with plenty of time to spare. He is extremely talented and played the list of songs that we requested from his repertoire beautifully. All of our guests commented, both on the day and many times since, about how wonderful he was. We honestly couldn't speak highly enough of him and just wish we had another occasion to book him for!
Amazing sax player and choose all the right songs for our special day. Well done we would definitely use him again.
Richie was absolutely amazing, I could listen to him all day! Every single guest came up to me and commented on how good he was. He is truly talented and would definitely recommend his services.

Richie was brilliant, very professional and good at his job. The client loved him. Weill will definitely book Richie again. Please pass on our thanks :) Thanks
Richie was, quite simply, fantastic. With a fairly short notice booking, we were fitted in and Richie couldn't have been more amenable. He provided the backdrop for a brilliant, chilled-out atmosphere and was courteous, affable and professional throughout. Totally recommended!
What a class act - Richie really made the evening very special. His talent is incredible. So many of our friends commented on his music and thought his song list was so extensive. Richie was a pleasure to work with both before and during the event.
