Steve was perfect: a brilliant performer, total professional, and a lovely guy. He expertly arranged and learned some new pieces for us, played everything to the highest standard, and generally went the extra mile to help make our day special. We would not hesitate to recommend him.

I booked Steve for my daughters wedding yesterday and confess it was the Madness bit that attracted me. He was so adaptable as things changed a few days before the wedding and timings changed. Steve was fantastic, very professional in approach and appearance but so helpful and accommodating. Music was superb and everybody loved it. The highlight for us, as huge madness fans was that Steve, us having told him so, finished with a madness number. We were waiting for dessert at the time and the Groomsmen were on their feet as was I and a few others. Thank you Steve for making our day even more memorable and special. I hope I have occasion to book you again. Corrine Steele

We booked Steve for a surprise 70th birthday party for our mum. He was a fabulous addition to the party - very friendly and great with the kids. Everyone loved his music and though he was great! We would definitely recommend him! Another plus is he doesn't take up much room if you're limited on space. Top marks for Steve!

Steve James was AMAZING more than I was expecting, several of my family and friends have requested to have him play for their events and so I have given your companies details and his specific name. I cannot thank him and your company enough for making my husbands 40th birthday a signature event.

Michelle Jones

Event: Birthday Party
Location: Essex

We had Steve James to play our Mothers 80th Birthday. He was amazing all day! Very friendly and professional with timings and guests. He made the afternoon flow beautifully. A perfect accompaniment to the afternoon! Thank you very much!


Event: Wedding
Location: Northamptonshire

We can honestly say that Steve was absolutely fantastic and he added that finishing touch to our special day. Steve was prompt and accommodated our every need. As for the performances, Myself and my bride only managed to catch a small portion of the songs he performed due to being otherwise occupied, however, if I had a pound for every guest who has mentioned how amazing the Sax player was and how much of a nice guy he was, the wedding would've been a whole lot cheaper. To summarise.... I really couldn't recommend Steve James highly enough, if you are looking for a really nice guy, an amazing Saxophone player and that final touch to make your day extra special, then Steve James is definitely the act you should book.

Thank you for making our wedding breakfast very special with your wonderful music. Phillip and I love the saxophone and we both thoroughly enjoyed your playing. We also received many complimentary comments from our guests who were equally delighted. You gauged the mix of music very well and satisfied all the age groups. Phill and I are more than happy to recommend you and I have no doubt we will be contacting you in a couple of years time when Phill is 65 to try to arrange for you to play for us some more.
