A saxophonist for an outdoor eventsNick 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 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.

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 sincerely believe that no one on Earth could stay indifferent to a lively Outdoor Event! Whatever the subject of rejoicing could be, it is always so refreshing and at the same time easeful to find yourself in the heart of a party outdoors.

Be it a friends’ picnic, an informal post-graduate gathering or your dear old auntie’s anniversary, any special event deserves to be the best.

So, it comes as no surprise that your nature-filled occasion must be, first and foremost, planned at its most.

Every detail is worth considering, so let us explore them all.

1. Your long-awaited party should stick to the golden mean in terms of its intensity.

What I mean here is that there should be a balance between an event stuffed with activities and the one which lacks them.

Inviting a professional saxophonist to your Outdoor Event seems a compelling idea, does not it?

2. Timing should be planned out beforehand.

Moreover, that is not enough for things to go smoothly during the party itself.

You also need to put that into practice and keep an eye on what is going on and how your guests react to overall ambience.

Hard as it may seem, it is real, especially if you make you mind to garner my support.

About how else I can help you except for top-quality sounding you can learn below.

3. You should clearly understand the desired concept of the party.

Which, once agreed on, ought to be supported by the tiniest detail on each and every level of the occasion.

You may want to include here:

* choice of a single or even multiple locations and a ‘plan B’ location just in case;

* detailed plan and script of your Outdoor Event involving all your guests according to their current physical and psychological state;

* exterior decorations corresponding to the overall party focus;

* entertainment program.

Let me throw in a few words about the latter point. This program might include a Master of Ceremonies and artists of various genres as well as experienced musicians.

The number of professionals involved in your event varies greatly depending on the number of expected guests, your personal preferences and financial capacities.

Undoubtedly, a musical band equipped with the latest technology – and in the know of the world’s musical heritage as well as today’s hits – would be a jewelry piece of your celebration.

Let me specify here that at times a solo musician, especially a saxophone player, will be just the right match. The reason is that the saxophone is quite a versatile musical instrument, which I can use to perform in a broad range of genres.

They contain pop, rock, and funk together with bebop, house, lounge and contemp.

And do not forget about classic music and all sorts of jazz!

The only requirements are permanent access to electricity and shelter from wind and rain. And, of course, your will to get things arranged properly at an early stage of planning and on.

Live saxophone music outside is always a great add-on as it can fill your party with a splash of excitement.

So dare to treat yourself and your most important people to an unforgettable experience.

My sax and I – and numerous assistants on request – will be there to make your dream come true.

So, feel free to contact me directly! Or fill in this application form – and I will get in touch with you asap.
