TIM CLARKE - THE SAX MAN
Live Sax music - just for you
Welcome to the website of Tim Clarke - The Sax Man. He is the No. 1 Choice for Musical Entertainment to complement your Wedding, Anniversary, Birthday Party, Corporate Function etc.
Tim is a highly-recommended, professional Wedding & Events Saxophone Player located on the Yorkshire/Lancashire boundary. Brought up in a musical family and with over 40 years experience as performer/composer/arranger with jazz/swing bands, wind/military bands, soul bands etc., and of course as a dedicated saxophonist for weddings & events, Tim also directs/conducts a music group in Ilkley.

Many musicians treat their contribution to an event as a classical recital, unable to play with the correct feel for contemporary songs, jazz etc. Tim's experience however gives him a broad musical appreciation but he also keeps up to date with today's charts; all these threads allow him to offer a vast, eclectic and ever-expanding repertoire.
Tim receives praise from everyone he has performed for - including a musician who toured with none other than the late, great Roy Orbison! (See the What People Say - Parties etc. tab*).
WHY SAXOPHONE MUSIC AT YOUR WEDDING?
You've got the Wedding Dress of your dreams, booked a Venue and maybe your Photographer, Florist, Wedding Band/DJ etc.
BUT HOW ABOUT SOME MUSIC DURING THE DAY - for the Drinks Reception/s, the Ceremony or Church Service, the Wedding Breakfast? AND LATER ON - with the first dance, or a set of party/club tunes? You and your guests will love the distinctive, smooth sounds of live saxophone music as it perfectly complements any part of your wedding day. The saxophone, accompanied by top-quality backing tracks, provides an authentic sound for all types of music: the alto sax, bright and cheery; the tenor, sultry and sexy; the soprano, smooth but clear; the clarinet (if required), sonorous and gentle.
Brides say: I never thought of having a Wedding Saxophonist, but I'm SO PLEASED WE GOT TIM!!
So whether it's love songs .. classical favourites .. jazz/swing/blues .. top party/club tunes later on .....
Please also go to the Wedding Info and How To Book page (click on the above tab*)
Although you will be on a HIGH throughout your Wedding Day, there are inevitable lulls as guests await the next part of the day ....... live music, of the sort I provide, minimises these low points and keeps fingers drumming and toes tapping!
Tim's Reviews often mention his friendliness, not just his professionalism.
Tim knows how much effort you have put into your Wedding - he cares about you and your Special Day and will always go the extra mile to ensure it runs just like you always dreamed it would. DON'T UNDERVALUE YOUR HAPPINESS by select entertainment on the basis of price alone. Not all wedding musicians are the same: you can rely on Tim to provide a sophisticated performance from start to finish!
Tim is always willing to discuss prices with you if ever you receive a lower quotation!
