TIM CLARKE - THE SAX MAN
wedding saxophonist sax player for events
TIM CLARKE - THE SAX MAN is an award-winning freelance wedding saxophonist based in North Yorkshire near the boundaries with West Yorkshire and Lancashire.
Not just weddings though, Tim plays at any event requiring live music - birthday parties, wedding anniversaries, christenings etc. etc. He's even played solo 3x for a leading public figure!
Tim doesn't just 'talk the talk' on weddings: he knows first-hand what's involved. As such, he'll go the extra mile to ensure your big day is just as you dreamt it would be. Unlike many DJs and photographers who turn up at weddings casually dressed (and that's being polite!) Tim is a true professional and always looks the part - even down to reflecting your colour scheme in the choice of suit & tie! No wonder he was awarded the Award of Excellence by top wedding site Bridebook.

Wedding music is often neglected, despite being the most essential form of wedding entertainment. Unlike other options, such as a magician who can only entertain your guests individually, a good selection of music delights all your guests and drives your wedding, reflecting the atmosphere you wish to create.
Tim has played freestyle with DJs - 'Ibiza style' - but it is when using his fantastic range of top-quality backing tracks his music comes to the fore.
OF ALL THE MUSIC OPTIONS AVAILABLE, NONE IS AS COOL AS THE SAX, WHICH IS IDEAL FOR ALL MUSIC GENRES Tim plays alto, tenor & soprano saxes, each with its special sound, and clarinet - perfect for any Vintage or Gatsby event. You'll be surprised at the range of songs Tim offers you - including plenty of chart sounds and hits, favourite movie tunes (lots of Disney!), Sinatra/swing/jazz - even classics!
YOU CAN'T PUT A VALUE ON THE MAGIC TIM ADDS TO A WEDDING - HIS SUPERB REVIEWS ARE EVIDENCE OF THAT! Tim provides an assured performance, but he also has the personality to create a fun occasion. His friendliness, passion and professionalism have been noted many times.
HAVING A CHURCH WEDDING? Tim now has all the traditional wedding marches and other popular tunes with church organ backing which sound amazing on sax, especially with the acoustics of a church building.
THERE'S NOTHING AS ROMANTIC AS A SAX PLAYING YOUR FAVOURITE SONG AS YOUR FIRST DANCE Tim can play some of his party & dance tunes at your evening reception, or freestyle along with a DJ. The choice is yours.
TIM IS WITH YOU ALL THE WAY FROM THE MOMENT YOU CONFIRM YOUR BOOKING Your wedding is the tip of the iceberg as far as Tim is concerned, as he sets to work immediately and develops a reassuring dialogue with you so that you are fully confident in his contribution to your big day.
