Light, elegant, and jazzy music to fill the room

The cocktail hour should have some cocktail music to go with it, and Cocktail Sax is just the group to do it. Cocktail Sax performs full-throated jazz to light background music that feeds the spirit and soul of your event.

You can also mix and match the size of the performance to meet your budget. They also play some contemporary tunes in a classic, romantic style, too.
