– ABOUT ME –

That’s me, Alec.

Saxophone and Vocals.

I hope that you enjoyed my Instagram Page. Thank you for coming here to enquire or at least to find out a little more…

If you would like to know more about little old me, click on the picture of me to the right.

This Image was taken during a Drinks Reception on an incredibly hot day at a Tuscan Hillside Estate in Italy. The rolling hills in Tuscany really are something to behold.

If you would like to know more about the services & packages that I offer along with their accompanying prices… You’ll find everything you should need on this page.

If a picture paints a thousand words… How many does a video paint…?

What happens when I ‘Hold’ your date?

Nothing Scary; After you ask me to Hold your date, I mark you as the primary client for that date. This means that when I receive another enquiry for the same date, I would come back to you and you would get first choice.

*Important: An enquiry alone does not secure a date. If you are interested, let me know which date you would like to reserve and I’ll put a ‘Hold’ on it for you.

Equipment & Destination A/V Hire

 

When traveling by Air, I have found that the Airline companies are not keen on me taking hundreds of kilograms of baggage with me.

What I bring with me:

  • LED Saxophone
  • LED Bongos
  • DJ Mixing Decks

The above is based on the ‘DJ, Sax & Bongos’ Package.

Professional Audio/Visual companies local to your venue would be able to suggest an appropriate set up for my DJ & SAX based evening packages.

I do have a ‘Tech Rider’ that is available upon request. – What is a Tech Rider? It’s just a list of technical equipment that my team and I would need to support our performance and add the finishing musical touches to your wedding.

      If you are considering booking a band separately and then booking a DJ & SAX based package with me, my suggestion would be to book one of the below:

      DJ & Sax Based Evening Packages

      DJ & SAX

      £4800

      DJ, Sax & Bongos

      £5250

      DJ, Sax, Female Vocals

      £5400

      DJ, Sax, Bongos, F Vocals

      £6200

      DJ, Sax, Bongos, F Vocals, Violin

      £7000


      Vocal Sets Example Timings

      Set 1

      @ 21:00 = Soul & Motown

      Set 2

      @ 22:00 = 80’s & Party Greats 

      Set 2

      @ 23:00 = Club Classics & Modern Chart Toppers

       

       

      These packages are also far more immersive an experience than a traditional Wedding Band as these packages blur the line between Stage and Dance-Floor by coming out and singing and playing in the middle of everyone while you and your guests are dancing and enjoying the music.

      These Live-DJ Crossover Party Packages come with Complimentary Upgrades to the L.E.D. Instruments and more with all of these Packages.

      With the DJ, Sax, Bongos & Female Vocals Package or any reduced variation of that package you would get that Band feel but the sound should be better, clearer and should flow seamlessly from the DJ sections to the Live Sections.

      Sax, Bongos or Violin: These are all L.E.D. Instruments for the evening to give that something extra, that wow-factor.

      TRAVEL COSTS

      Travel Estimate Guide

      This is a rough guide to the travel costs incurred with Destination Wedding Entertainment. Once agreed, The ‘Travel Costs Invoice’ would need to be paid along with the deposit invoice so that I can book all of the travel as soon as possible. This is to minimise the risk of the prices going up, as they would be subject to change that is out of my control, e.g. RyanAir up their flight cost and I have to re-invoice you etc.

      My Team (if you are booking more than just me as Solo Sax) and I would always fly out at least one day before your wedding to minimise the risk of travel complications that are out of my control, I.e. the unlikely event of strikes or extreme delays etc. Also being there early allows for a better assessment of the venue, logistics and timings of your special day.

      Note: If you don’t end up booking with me, I strongly advise not hiring anyone that offers to fly out on the same day as your wedding. If they offer to do this, they are most likely inexperienced and if there is an airline delay… you could be without entertainment! Just a friendly tip 

      Example Travel Costs

      Flights:

      Return Ticket, Cost Per Person = £ ?

      +

      Baggage:

      1 Hold Suitcase Per Person, mixture of clothes & instrument accessories.

      Return Cost usually £60

      +

      Instrument Carriage: 

      Instrument Carriage is usually £100 for a return flight.

      +

      Transfers / Rental Car: 

      £150-250, Rough estimate based on previous destination weddings.

      This can be done one of two ways:

      I can hire a car from a reputable car company such as ‘Europcar’. For the standard 3 day Period.

      2) You / Your wedding planner book in required transfers. £?

      Usually, I would advise the Rental Car option.

      My reasoning is that if I am not a guest at the Wedding Venue then there would be multiple small journeys between the Venue and my accommodation to take into account also.

      +

      Accommodation:

      Two nights: The night before your wedding and the night of your wedding.

      1) At Wedding Venue – This option, If possible is always the most convenient and flexible.

      2) A Nearby Hotel / Nice Air Bn’B etc

      If your planner will be booking the accommodation I would need them to send me the links to the accommodation so that I could agree it with them prior to them booking it, as I have had some interesting past experiences.

      = Total For The Travel Invoice

      I will summarise the example costing below for you, then we can substitute the example costs for your actual costs:

      Flights………………………..…£160

      Baggage……………………….…£60

      Instrument Carriage……£100

      Hotel (2 nights)………….. £250

      Rental Car………………….. £180

      Example Total.….£750

      This example is based upon the ‘Solo Sax’ Package, i.e. Just me, traveling alone & are estimates, not accurate quotes.

      Location, Location, Location.

      My team and I are available worldwide… Sadly the moon is out of the questions until Richard Branson or Elon Musk sort out tourism there. – Destination Weddings are a Premium Services and incur additional charges to UK Based Weddings.

      Watching The Budget…

      If you have set yourself a budgetary restriction, let me know what it is. Also once I have a better understanding of kind of entertainment you are most interested in and for which sections of your special day I will craft you the absolute best Bespoke Package to suit your taste, needs and of course your budget.
