SaxophoneGeorge plays alto, tenor, soprano saxes and Guitar with backing tracks to provide jazzy music for weddings, restaurants, house parties, mixers, open houses, and any social or private event.
My focus is creating great background jazzy music and mood setting. Your guests can mingle and chat. The music sets the ambience and does not overpower the room.
Dance a little if you want.

“I hired George to play sax and accompanying tracks at my wedding in Torrance and he was absolutely fantastic. He played ceremony music as well as background music at the reception. My guests raved about how wonderful he was and what a perfect ambiance he created for our reception. His mix of classic jazz, pop music, and even songs from well-known soundtracks put a smile on everyone’s face and kept the party going. George is friendly, easy to work with, and very, very talented. I couldn’t be happier with his performance on my big day!”
“Thank you for the good wishes, for such a beautiful playing and for keeping up with the busy schedule that day. It was very nice meeting you! I’ll recommend you as a saxophonist for events to all my friends.”
