Nick Reynolds (Head of Jazz at Chichester University) had this to say about Tom - ‘Tom is a talented and versatile saxophone player with a great future ahead of him. His impressive technique is matched by a mature sense of musicianship and he has a comprehensive understanding of how to fluently negotiate a broad range of repertoire. Tom’s outlook is highly professional and he is sensitive to the requirements of the different settings he performs in.’

The guys were absolutely brilliant and very professional for my daughter's special day. They arrived suited and booted, nice and early to set up and played a wonderful set during the reception drinks. Tom was a delight to deal with throughout the booking process, very easy to contact and I would strongly recommend them to anyone who wants to set their day off with a swing!
