A saxophonist at your weddingNick York

IN-HOUSE EQUIPMENT

During your event there’s no need to worry about the sound – I will arrange all sound equipment if necessary, and also be your event sound engineer from start to finish. This involves not only my personal musical performance but also providing sound equipment, a musical program and backup music for the whole event.

MUSICAL PERFORMANCES IN ANY PART OF THE WORLD

My performances are not geographically limited to New York – on your request I can come to any part of the world! We can discuss my rider separately on a case-by-case basis depending on how remote your venue is. The date and time of the performance as well as my required arrival time will be discussed beforehand. If other guest artists are involved, a joint rehearsal may be arranged.

'TURN-KEY' celebration

On your request I can organize a start-to-finish event including the performance itself, photo and video sessions, a master of ceremonies, sound equipment, florists and other professionals who will make your show simply unforgettable! A pre-event meeting will discuss all your fine details. Given the various options and scripts for the event, you’ll easily and comfortably work into the best choice for you.

IMPECCABLE STYLE, DIVERSE PERFORMANCE EXPERIENCE

A varied and broad selection of my stage costumes will allow to always match the outfit to the style and theme – and create a well-balanced artistic image. I’m pretty well-versed in playing at events of multiple levels – prestigious international contests, official hospitality meetings and TV shows. My track record involving different audiences allows me to have a subtle feel for the audience mood and bring about the right emotions. This can’t but touch people to their core.

RESPONSIBLE ATTITUDE AND REPUTATION

I have 20 years of worldwide experience. My repertoire varies from official functions to parties and celebrations with unfailingly excellent customer feedback! I always treat my performance at the event with the utmost degree of responsibility. We will go over every detail with a fine-toothed comb, you have my word. I will arrive early enough to prevent any unforeseeable events.

Thank you for your impeccable play on our wedding. Through Nick’s playing on the sax our guests immersed themselves in emotional performance and immaculate taste. Significantly, he is also quite punctual and mindful. One can truly rely on such a musician and commit to him an important mission of playing at their event. Thank you for your competence!

If you have found yourself on the site of this talented saxophonist and keep questioning your choice while reading feedback, I will assure you: his is 100% problem-free! As an event manager, I have never regretted reaching out to his services - not for a single second! The wedding was taking place in Moscow Region on 30 Aug, 2014. We had the celebration’s details and timing discussed in advance. Preciseness and punctuality are among typical features of this gifted person. Thanks for the job.

Aleksandr Silaev

Nick, many thanks for the concert in the Institute of Applied Physics - on 1 April, 2016! It was not only your excellent music performance that made us happy, but also your well-wishing and a farewell speech to the Institute staff! I wish you to go on cheering people up with your skill and drive.

Julia Fedkina

Nick, thank you for our high day on 13 June, 2015. You made it striking and unforgettable! Your fantastic play drove our guests to cloud nine and made them cry out with joy. So we have gladly told everyone around about our musician! We wish you loads of creative success.

Nick has performed at our wedding and, of course, has won all the hearts! The guests were heartily dancing to the sound of the saxophone, it was very romantic! We were enjoying each tune, and, to top it all, Nick was paying attention to every table. That stroke a chord of every single guest! I wish Nick success and prosperity.

Vsevolod Chernak

Nick, thank you for playing on my wedding on 10 June, 2016. My wife and I, and, above all, our guests have liked it all like crazy. The decent sound blended seamlessly into the overall atmosphere of the day X. Good luck in your future endeavors and projects. Thanks a million again!

AFTER YOUR CALL, we can agree on a MEETING to discuss ALL DETAILS OF your UPCOMING EVENT

Once the service package for your celebration is finalized, the next step is to sign a service agreement. A 50% downpayment is required and a balance amount is payable after the performance.
What we need to discuss?
  • scope of necessary services
  • venue and time of the performance
  • repertoire
  • duration of the performance
  • artistic stage outfit
  • technical equipment, etc.

I arrive on site well in advance and leave sufficient time to prepare necessary equipment and do the sound check. When everything is ready for the event, it's time for you to enjoy your favorite tunes and the sound of saxophone!

A wedding is an event that is usually planned a few months ahead. And for some people it may take up to several years. It is something you want just perfect. That’s why such a life event needs to be planned down to the minute detail. You will want to tie up all loose ends to make sure that everything looks exquisite and, most importantly, that it will be remembered forever. So here you are, your friends are waiting anxiously for the time they could "have a drink and stuff down some snacks and salads", while girls sigh regretfully that they "have no place to show off their new dresses." Yet, the food and dresses don’t need to be most memorable part of your celebration.

Sadly enough, this seems to be a growing trend! Wedding celebrations so often turn out languid, and colorless, and spiceless everywhere around the globe. So it would be only reasonable to wonder what prevents those parties from being a success. The answer is: no one invited a saxophonist to the wedding party.

One could ask themselves why invite a saxophonist. Firstly, I am flexible. Secondly, as a rule, I follow a special custom-made program. Frankly speaking, if you want a splendid party, there exist no ready solutions or templates unlike in organized groups and other entertainers. My preparations are always event-specific. If you want to be personally involved in making the background music accompaniment, you can expect no deviation from the settled plan. In addition, I can feel the audience vibe and will respond immediately to any critical turn of events by playing up-tempo jazz to pep up the party, or moody blues to pacify and relax the guests.

The newlyweds will be carried away with international music hits in jazz adaptations. And should the parents want to remember their good old days, the saxophone will revive their favorite songs.

This is when the main advantage of having a saxophonist at your wedding reveals itself – it is the finishing touch, or the icing on the cake. Surely you will not forget the music you have first danced to as Mr. and Mrs. And guests will fondly look back upon the music, fun and romance at one go. Music is the best way to improve your mood as it helps to relax and chill. With a saxophonist at your wedding, you will see happiness and joy on your guests’ faces!

A saxophone is also a perfect instrument to play in tandem: it will help to reveal the potential of the singer's voice, or complement the violin’s role. Every wedding has its own ambience, and my goal is to convey the happy feelings of the newlyweds to all the guests at your celebration!

Before and During the Ceremony

On the special day of your wedding ceremony, indulge yourself with a silken saxophone blast. And make sure your people are entertained as well – while you are busy with the one who stole your heart. My sax and I will be there for you, be it the registration itself or going down the rose-petal path to the altar. Whatever song comes to your liking, it will render a special touch to your event.

Champagne and Photographs

What is a bigger shot on you W-day: your newlywed photo op or keeping your good old friends awake after the ceremony? When choice is tough, kill two birds with one stone: leave yourself wide open to your photo guru – and let your guests throw their own party with some sax in it.

The Wedding Breakfast

You can have a lively chat with your guests and soothing background music at the same time. All during your wedding breakfast. A live mini-concert played on a saxophone by a pro will make it come true.

First Dance

Your first dance with your future spouse can become even more heart-stirring. Tender saxophone accompaniment is the answer. I will support your move with any track you choose and also look after stage light and costumes – with a preliminary rehearsal as an option.

The Wedding Dinner

The Wedding Day is a one-of-a-kind day for most of us. If you wish to enjoy an informal friend-and-family get-together, a hearty Wedding Dinner is a perfect option. Especially if you spice it with soulful sounds of the saxophone! Please contact me now or fill in this application form.
