Wedding bands with Sax

Ever wonder how some wedding bands just seem to have that extra oomph? Well, their secret to obtaining this huge sound is simple enough - add a horn section to the line up! Brass instruments naturally complement the rhythm section and help elevate certain tracks by accentuating the beat, so it's no secret that we all love to get down with the trumpets!

A brass section is made up from saxophones, trumpets, trombones etc. and are naturally loud instruments that help amplify the more bombastic songs in a set list. The saxophone is by far the most popular horned instrument, so you'll expect to see an appearance in most wedding band line ups or, at the very least, as an additional add on. However, these instruments really come into their own when accompanying one another, as this enables one player to solo whilst the others harmonise. Performing in unison with one another results in richer harmonies to the background parts of a song, extra power to the overall piece and greater versatility throughout the performance.

Wedding Bands with a Sax Player

Saxophone players, as mentioned earlier, are highly popular amongst clients who want that little something extra to accompany their wedding band. Their sultry sound has long been associated with jazz, but as of recent years they’ve become increasingly popular in Ibiza classics, deep house and, even more recently, in lots of contemporary pop songs that feature infectious hooks and riffs!

It’s not uncommon nowadays for bands to offer a DJ / Sax set as an optional add on to your event. This typically involves a saxophone player accompanying the DJ on the night performing to dance classics, contemporary chart hits and much more for a unique entertainment experience between the band’s live sets!

It’s worth noting that most bands work with a multitude of musicians in their network, so although you may not be able to see any brass musicians in their promotional material (i.e. photos, videos etc.), this doesn’t means they’re not available to add on as an additional musician. With this in mind, we’ve put together a list of party bands below that work with saxophonists for your to look through - if you think these wedding bands sound great, just wait until you introduce a bit of brass!

Sound Restrictions and Brass Instruments

Sound limiters and restrictions on noise are ubiquitous nowadays, so don't be surprised if your venue won't allow brass instruments and horn sections for your event. Sound limiters are usually installed at venues to make sure a certain noise limit is not reached by measuring the output of sound throughout the duration of the event. If the noise limit peaks, then the band will have a few seconds to rectify the volume or the power might be cut off momentarily - a guaranteed mood killer!

Therefore, this can prove to be problematic for brass instruments, as they are acoustically very loud and can easily reach 100dB without being amplified. With this in mind, it's worth discussing with your venue whether such restrictions are in place prior to confirming. Some venues monitor the sound output manually with hand held devices, so you may find more leniency depending on the limit they need to stick to.

Either way, we highly advise discussing this in detail before booking a band to make sure there won't be any hiccups on the day. Saxophonists and trumpeters alike can play their instrument more quietly if required, but if you're after a big band sound and wanting to have a raucous party, then it's definitely more desirable to find a venue that can accommodate this for you.

Live DJ Sets Accompanied by Saxophone

The majority of party bands will offer additional DJ services as part of their package, whether this be an actual DJ accompanying the band or a band member offering a DJ service. Even more excitingly though, some wedding bands even offer a saxophonist or trumpeter to accompany the DJ to add a rather unique entertainment experience!

You'll find brass musicians often like getting into the crowd and really shaking things up, especially when performing Fleur East's 'Sax' or Kungs vs Cookin’ on 3 Burners 'This Girl'. You'll soon see guests having fun taking selfies and streaming live whilst dancing along with a brass player on the dance floor.

However, we realise adding more musicians to a band can make things more expensive, so we've put together some of the best live DJ acts together below for you to look through. Creating that party atmosphere with ease, whilst still providing a live element of music is what makes these bands so popular for weddings - feast your ears on the following!
