Very impressed with Tom: plays like a demon, great at improvising and knowing when to play, plus the girlies like him too! One of the best sax players I've gigged with anywhere

I met Tom through my brother Scott who runs various events around Manchester. He came highly recommended but to be honest I didn't really expect what I heard when I got to my event! As soon as Tom came on the whole vibe in the room went up a level! Toms energy levels and musical talent made the dancefloor instantly fill and he really did impress me! So many people were asking for his contact number after my party! A real highlight of my birthday and great booking for any party!
