Introduction

I’m a Yorkshire based professional saxophonist, performing on the Soprano, Alto and Tenor saxophones. With a keen love for everything to do with performing, I have many years of experience in both playing and teaching a wide range of woodwind instruments, having performed at a wide range of venues through out Europe, spanning everything from small intimate venues to the state ballroom at Buckingham Palace. There is more information on my extensive training and experience on the biography page. 

Planning a party, wedding or corporate event?  If you are, then why not consider adding live music.  The sound of a solo sax, performing a wide selection of musical styles together with backing tracks, will add an extra level of sophistication and class to any event, and can help to create a relaxed atmosphere.  This is also a great way of providing live music without the higher costs associated with hiring small groups of musicians. 

Just imagine your wedding day, and walking down the aisle to a live performance of a tune which means a lot to you.  I already have an extensive (and constantly evolving) library of music to choose from. However, if you have a special piece not currently on the list, but it’s one which would work well as an instrumental performance, I will do my best to get hold of it for you.

Would just like to say I can not rate Martin highly enough.  He was absolutely fantastic.

Set up whilst we were getting married and played our exit song as me and Steve walked out of the ceremony.  This was a planned surprise for Steve. Martin played all the songs I requested and more. Our meal was running late and Martin continued to play over his booked time.

Everyone commented on how good he was. Lovely man very friendly and great saxophonist.

Thankyou Martin

Karen & Steve

Thank you Martin for playing during our recent wedding ceremony and reception.

Our guests complimented your playing and I know some took your details, hopefully you will secure future bookings.  Initially your wide and varied music catalogue made it difficult for us to choose our favourites but finally we were able to draw up a playlist – our one regret is that we didn’t book you for longer so that we could hear more of your repertoire.

Thank you once again you made our special day even more special.

Wedding Ceremony & Drinks Reception

Huge thanks to Martin for playing our reception drinks/ welcome for our wedding on 23.9.23 at Danby Castle Barn, in the North York Moors. It was hit and miss regarding if we were going to be able to play outside due to the weather but Martin was adaptable and made my wishes come true to play outside which really made the day / allowed us to enjoy the views. Martin played an array of genres which entertained all of our guests. We had extremely positive feedback from everyone in attendance and we will definitely be using Martin again! It was also great to catch up with Martin at the end of the set – he is a genuinely nice guy and easy to speak to! Thanks again and see you for the next party!! 🎉

Martin played at our wedding reception a few weeks back and he was absolutely fantastic!
We requested a song which wasn’t in his repertoire but this wasn’t a problem for him and it was our favourite of the day!
I have seen Martin play twice now and both times his music was incredible.
We got so many compliments from our guests I would 100% recommend.
Thank you again

Wedding drinks reception

Martin was amazing from start to finish.  We needed a saxophone player really short notice for a work event and Martin responded straight away.  He was willing to travel form Yorkshire to Newcastle with just 2 days’ notice.  He even could play the song we requested, a Geordie favourite ‘Local Hero’.  Our client enjoyed it so much he got emotional, as he said it took him back to his childhood when his father used to take him to St James’ Park for the Newcastle matches.  Martin is so polite, professional, and very very talented.  I couldn’t rate or thank him enough!  simply brilliant 🙂

Martin was excellent from start to finish, provided a great atmosphere throughout the drinks reception with a great mixture of music for everyone’s taste, we even had some singing and dancing to his tunes, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him and the amount of comments from the guests and Bride & Groom were a testament to how well he was received, thank you again

Martin was very easy to work with and communicate with leading up to our wedding. He played our first dance song (A Million Love Songs by Take That) and then for a couple hours throughout our wedding breakfast. All of our guests really enjoyed the live music. Martin did a beautiful job! Would definitely recommend him for your next event.

Martin was ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. I cannot thank Martin enough. The music he played for me as I walked down the Aisle made me cry. The whole music he provided was absolutely flawless- he was absolutely incredible. Such a polite gentleman. Thank you so much Martin- we will never forget you.

The most amazing saxophonist I’ve ever heard!! 🎷 💍
Martin Little – Saxophonist created THE atmosphere at our wedding breakfast and first dance. There were so many of our guests commenting on how amazing the music was.
From booking to the big day, nothing was too much trouble, he made sure everything was so perfect.
If you are looking for someone to play saxophone for an event you have coming up, look no further than Martin. Xx

Martin arrived on time and ready to start straight away. He was so much better than I had expected and surprised everyone who attended with the variety and how well he played the music. Martin totally smashed the it out of the park. He was fantastic and will be booking him again as soon as I can. Thanks so much buddy.

Engagement garden party

We had the pleasure of Martin opening our Silver Wedding Anniversary on 21st August 22. He was well received by both guests of our celebrations and people who happened to be in the garden area of the venue where he was playing. He played a wide variety of songs which we had previously arranged and also played our special song as we cut the cake.

We would highly recommend Martin not only for being a brilliant Saxophonist but also for being a friendly and pleasant person to deal with.

Thanks for starting our special day off in fantastic style, Wendy and Chris Buck

PHENOMENAL!!

 

Wow Martin you delivered!  We booked Martin for our wedding, to play at the church before my arrival on my arrival and during the reception meal.  The comments made by each and every guest present were nothing but praise!  You really created the atmosphere I envisaged.  It was MAGICAL! Your talent is out of this world and I wouldn’t of changed any of it.  Thank you so so much for your time and music!  Mr & Mrs Crowe-Chadwick

Holly

We booked Martin for our Sons’s 2nd Birthday Party.  Well what can I say other than AMAZING! Martin has been kind, prompt and extremely professional from start to finish.  He performed so well at our party, every song was well played with the Saxophone.

I would personally say he was much better than our DJ in terms of atmosphere and creating such a cool vibe.  Thank you Martin for making our party a super success and for all the help that you gave us, we will definitely be booking you again in the future.

Neil

Birthday Party

I booked Martin as a surprise for my wife’s birthday. Martin was great & really made the garden party. Everyone loved every second of him playing. He’s so talented. We also booked Martin for our whole wedding day & we cannot thank him enough for making it even more special. We would highly recommend. Martin you’re fantastic

Birthday garden party

We hired Martin for our father’s 70th birthday.  To bring a little sophistication to the night between the dj, there were plenty of songs to pick from his repertoire.  We all sang and danced along and enjoyed it thoroughly. Would definitely recommend
