A saxophonist for a Drink receptionsNick 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.

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.

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.

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!

I am happy to say my experience in playing both tenor and alto sax is quite enough to fit any occasion of yours, irrespective of its theme, function or auditorium.

There might be quite a few reasons for inviting a professional male saxophonist to a Drink Reception.

Despite a popular misconception that high-quality alcohol and nice people around are enough for a splendid party, there must be at least a hint of culture – for a truly positive vibe.

Also, live chill-out music will help you out if the room gets awkwardly quiet, which at times happens at every party.

Let me now outline what we need to do to ensure all goes smoothly.

Of course, we should start working hard as early as on the preparation stage cause, as you may know, ‘Failing to plan is planning to fail’.

As a rule, we begin with discussing the desired repertory and arranging the timing – so that all the chosen tracks are played at a good hour.

It is noteworthy that even if you cannot pick the tracks you crave from my wide repertoire, it is not a problem. As my hallmark is customizing any event to perfectly match your taste.

If you wish, we can have a preliminary rehearsal before the appointed time of your event so that you could try-and-test my saxophone’s sound.

What I put on offer is:

* extensive musical experience;

* hugely eclectic repertoire varying from the world-class good old hits to the latest releases in many genres;

* top-notch sound equipment;

* well-thought-out artistic outfit;

* versatile style of play depending on your event’s desired atmosphere;

* EQ high enough for keeping an eye on your guests’ mood.

While this list may seem an exhaustive one, there are a few more things to consider.

Firstly, I can also lend you a helping hand in organizing your overall event.

This includes everything but the kitchen sink:

* planning out your special event;

* thinking over both decorative and event-related sides;

* inviting corresponding pros.

The latter may include a well-versed photographer and videographer, a florist and interior decorator, and a master of ceremonies, who is nothing but the backbone of any event.

After that, we can at least give a thought to the idea of expanding. Expanding the musical component on your party or ceremony from me soloing – to a duet or even a full-scale band. The repertory in this case will remain as broad-ranged and inclusive as in the solo-sax case. But several extra hints of other musical instruments will add more spice to your special occasion.

Seems like it is high time to hire a saxophonist for your Drink Reception.

Contact me straightaway to get the best bargain coupled with my tact and fineness.
