Rory, most notable as producer of Latin Explosion and Latin Ignition, performs with his jazz quartet and Latin trio, combining his love of jazz and improvised music with funk, soul and Latin.

Rory's well-established jazz quartet brings together these influences of jazz, swing and rat pack, appearing at numerous private/corporate events, weddings and parties throughout the UK. Rory’s Latin trio lineup blends a sweet layering of vocals, saxophone and flute with the warm flavours of the acoustic guitar and the crisp attack of the cajon, playfully fusing Bossa Nova with acoustic Latin, funk, soul and pop, combining arrangements of classic tunes with classy originals in a dynamic, small group setting – perfect for bars, restaurants and parties lending themselves to a festive, bohemian atmosphere.

Rory was absolutely fantastic at our wedding. All my guests commented on how good he was from start to finish. The music was perfect, he made all my guests feel relaxed and made it really enjoyable. I got the chance to have a quick chat to Rory and he's such a lovely person too, I really recommend Rory to anybody who is looking for a saxophonist at a reasonable price. It was all perfect, thank you so much.

Absolutely fabulous! I'm guessing it's not everyday you get asked to be a wedding surprise but Rory was incredibly professional & organised even when we got delayed. The performance was flawless and beautiful & was probably the most memorable part of our day. We very much hope to hire him again for future occasions.

Rory was an excellent addition to our wedding! He is very talented performing on both the Saxaphone during the drinks reception and on the grand piano throughout dinner! He seamlessly set the tone perfectly!! He acted very professionally setting up in advance discreetly and welcoming the guests into the venue raising the vibe!
