As dessert is cleared, he'll put down the horn and emcee your slow dance features, before keeping the party jumping as an experienced DJ . Every wedding reception is different. A meeting will be scheduled prior to the event to discuss the itinerary as well as song selection. Someday all wedding DJs will provide live music before the dancing begins. Read less

We were very impressed with the overall service from Saxman Slim. He was able to play a little bit of everything for all generations. The dance floor was never empty. Saxman Slim played his saxaphone during the ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner - I am still getting compliments on the wedding music. He DJ'ed the rest of the evening and a great time was had by all! Thanks again Saxman Slim! :) Also it was very easy to work with him. I live in California but we had our wedding in Buffalo New York - he was very accomodating and even allowed a few last minute changes. :)

Sincerely,

The Noworyta's

We had Justin from Saxman Slim DJ our wedding. In my opinion, the music and the food are the two most important aspects of a reception. Justin had our guests on the dance floor all night. On top of that, the saxophone during cocktail hour and dinner is such a treat for your guests. Our guests had such a great time at our wedding and I know the music was a big part of that. I would recommend Justin and Saxman Slim to anyone.

Saxman slim, is a great choice. For our wedding (we had saxman Matt) performed some magic and got almost my entire mostly introverted wedding guest list up dancing for the whole night. It was truly amazing. Other important things to note:

The Sax:
The saxophone music during the cocktail hour and dinner was 100% what I was looking for. The music was classy but really fun which set up a relaxed atmosphere. It also was loud enough to have comfortable background noise but not loud enough to make conversation difficult.

The announcements:
He was careful to know all the wedding parties names and there were no errors or mispronunciations. We had a somewhat complicated speech set up which he handled effortlessly, even when there were a few confusions he gracefully moved the process forward. We then played the shoe game, and he added great comic timing to the game and everyone really enjoyed it.

the value:
I can't say enough about what a great value this was. His DJ skills were amazing, he was very perceptive about what to play and when to keep a varied group of individuals happy comfortable and entertained. The sax playing was just so special, relaxing, inviting and perfectly executed. The cost was very very reasonable. He even offered to do the ceremony for a very minor extra charge. This was the best value of my wedding.

Flexibility: THIS IS THE BEST PART

He made our first dance song special. My husband and I were having trouble choosing a song and he was able to mix them together in a way I couldn't beleive. It was perfect and meaningful for us. He was happy to help us every way we asked and we are so grateful to him.

The Sax man was wonderful in helping us plan our special day! He was very flexible and took the time to sit down and plan out exactly how our day would go. It was better than I imagined. Everyone commented on how awesome the DJ was and what a wonderful job he did. He really got involved with the guests and got everyone going. He provided not only DJ service but music for the ceremony and cocktail hour. Our ceremony was supposed to be set up outside, but rained and had to be moved inside. He set up the sound without a hitch and I didn’t even have to worry about a thing. I would highly recommend the Sax Man to any bride and groom!

From the pre ceremony music, to the ceremony music, cocktail hour music, dinner music, and of course the dancing music...everything was great. You are so talented and we really enjoyed every minute. You were so attentive to the crowd too...always playing what was being enjoyed. Everyone commented on it and we just want to thank you! Will definitely recommend your services to anyone looking for great musical entertainment.
Thanks again!

All of the "must haves" were played during our reception. He consistently checked in with us to make sure the music was good and if we had anything we wanted to be played next. Steve was a delight to work with and we would (and have) recommended him to other people!

Our DJ was Steve Rosenthal, through Saxman Slim. He was absolutely amazing from the ceremony, through the end of the reception. He followed all requests I gave him, as well as checking to make sure he was doing everything correctly. One of my friends was a given a hat during the dancing at the reception, he came over and told me that the bride should have the best hat, and gave me his! (Which looked great in the pictures from the dance floor!) I would recommend this service to any and everyone that needs a DJ. He made my wedding truly one to remember!

Mike was excellent! He even figured out how to do the wedding although we wanted to be right next to the falls in Niagara... a place that he wouldn't be able to get his equipment to. With some good thinking, a laptop,and his Sax, it was excellent.The Sax was a really awesome addition to the wedding overall, thus he was equally excellent at the reception. We had a great time!! I wondered how a Sax and DJ (we like hip hop and pop) would match, but I decided to go with it per the atmosphere suggestions and effects described on the main wedding page... http://saxmanslim.com/wedding.html it was a perfect match for each phase of the wedding and reception. I did not know the sax is an accompaniment to background music at the ceremony (I wondered how loud s solo sax would be) but was pleasantly surprised that there was background music.

I highly recommend hiring Saxman Slim for your wedding. After hearing positive comments from a friend of mine (Saxman Slim was the DJ at her work holiday party), I went to see him play at the Waterstone Grill in Hamburg and was very impressed. He played the saxophone for the cocktail hour at my wedding, then again during dinner and throughout the night. Guests loved his music. He is easy to work with. My husband and I met with him two weeks before the wedding to review our wedding song and the venue (who was giving the toast, announcing the wedding party, etc). I couldn't be more pleased. You won't be disappointed. - Melissa

I first heard Saxman Slim playing during cocktail hour at a friend's wedding. I was not even engaged to my fiance yet and I told him that we would have Saxman play at our wedding - he was so unique and very talented. My boyfriend and I got engaged a while later, and Saxman was one of the first vendors that I contacted. He was very accommodating and very receptive to our song ideas. Everyone loved the live music curing the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. He was very professional, yet still had fun at the reception. I would recommend Saxman to anyone who needs a DJ for any event, not just weddings!

We looked into using Saxman Slim as the DJ/live musician for our wedding reception because we knew many friends who used them and were satisfied.

Steve (our Saxman) was excellent; he is a true professional. From start to finish, he delivered everything he promised. In fact, when we look back, we feel he was the only vendor we used who truly met/exceeded every expectation.

Steve took time to meet us in advance. He understood our personalities and the kind of party we were trying to have. He arrived to the wedding early, and was flexible enough to set up around our decorations. Throughout the night, he casually checked in with us several times to make sure we were happy with what we were hearing; he did this without being intrusive or disruptive. He played great music that had our crowd dancing all night!

Steve was very respectful of our guests, and many commented that he was the best DJ/musician they'd seen in a long time. Steve was a pleasure to work with. We really appreciate his professionalism and talent, and we highly recommend him to anyone seeking a DJ or performer. He will always be our first choice!

Saxman Slim was great! He played sax for the cocktail hour and dinner and magically transformed into a dj for the dancing portion of the evening. He took care of everything including making sure he had the songs we wanted for the bouquet toss and garter part of the night. He was friendly, professional, and on time. I would definitely recommend him if you are looking for something different then your everyday average dj and to be quite honest he charges just about the same. "Your wedding will be perfect. But in the event of a lull in the conversation, there's Saxman Slim."- check him out on facebook too he is funny http://www.facebook.com/SaxmanSlim?fref=ts

We were very satisfied with our experience with Saxman Slim. The professionalism and quality of the sax playing and DJ performance were impeccable. The guests at our wedding were very impressed with the uniqueness that Saxman Slim offered. Our Saxman kept the guests happy beginning with smooth sax music during cocktail and dinner hours. After dinner, Saxman became an expert DJ and kept the dance floor full late into the night. Also, Saxman Slim is a very affordable DJ/Sax service; package pricing is below other DJ services. Overall, Saxman Slim was a great addition to our wedding!

We were thrilled with Saxman Slim. Our musician backed out on us a couple months prior to the wedding and we found we had little time to hire someone else. Saxman Slim was recommended to us by our photographer...it was the best advice we got during our planning stage! People are still commenting how great it was to have the sax music during cocktails/dinner, and though it was hot and windy outside and few people felt like dancing, the DJ portion of the night was great as well. I would have liked more interaction from the DJ during that dance portion of the day, but perhaps our venue made that difficult. We also had guests leave much earlier than we anticipated. Overall, we would give SS two-thumbs-up for sure! Would highly recommend him for whataver party you are planning for!

He checked with me throughout the night about how the mood was and it was perfect. When I didn't like a song i would look at him and he'd stop it and play something else. When i wanted to play a song...he immediately played it. So great and so professional.

We had other entertainment and he was great to work around. The dance music was the best I ever heard at wedding no less at a club. Everyone, and I mean everyone, was up on the floor. Cocktail hour the music with the Sax it put everyone in the right mood. I will use him again when my next daughter gets married and you should too for any event He is just awesome.

We were so pleased with the service provided by Saxman Slim at our holiday wedding. We chose this company after hearing many good reviews and finally hearing Steve play at the Chocolate Bar. Steve was very professional, but also fun. He made an extra effort to make our wedding day special and was very happy to accommodate any requests. It is very rare that you will find such a value combining both live music for your wedding ceremony or event with a live DJ. Having Steve provide both services was convenient and provided a natural flow for the day. I highly recommend this company for your wedding/celebration!

At the wedding his performance was great and so was his professionalism. When it came time for specialty dances or other things he always found our photographer first so we didn't have to worry about anything. Our wedding day was perfect and ran smoothly. I didn't have to worry about a thing and this was in large part because of SaxMan Slim. Many guests also remarked about the great job that he did.

Saxman Slim is the best of both worlds. You get a live musician and DJ wrapped into one. He plays saxophone during the cocktail hour and dinner and then switches to DJ to help get the party started. He's very easy to work with and very reasonably priced. He's also very flexible. We had a number of changes to make after our initial meeting with him, and we felt like we were being a pain in the butt, but he took note of all our changes and never once made us feel like we were being annoying. He also has a very large musical library, ranging from the 40's and 50's up through current hits. He also listens. We told him what we wanted him to play and didn't want and he honored our requests. I would highly recommend his services for your wedding.

Well, it's been 6 months since the wedding, so we've forgotten quite a bit. The one thing we haven't forgotten, however, was how amazing Steve was as Saxman Slim. We received endless compliments from party guests about his performance. He is a phenomenal saxophone player, and did a great job of tailoring his DJ music to what we, and our guests wanted. He was a great emcee during the toasts and introductions. Our one-on-one meeting in his home was incredibly fun and comfortable. Suffice to say, there are not enough great things I can say about Steve.

His sax performance during the cocktail hour and dinner hour left all of our guest talking after words about how personal and different it made our wedding! Most of all Matt really kept all of our guests dancing all night when he switched over to DJ! He had all ages from young to older dancing all night! Seriously....the staff at the hall had to kick out the guest at the end of the night. I would recommend Saxman Slim for any upcoming occasion! He is professional, fun and extremely talented!

I strongly recommend Saxman Slim. We had less than two months to plan our wedding, and so it was quite helpful that both the owner and the particular musician with whom we worked were responsive to our inquiries, including several adjustments we made along the way (such as adding more time and changing some particulars about the format). The musician was helpful selecting music and determining our needs for the available space and time (we met with him in person and also communicated via phone and e-mail). Many guests commented on how good he was when he played his saxophone as guests were arriving and waiting for the ceremony to begin. For the reception, he played the songs we had chosen, was very responsive to requests (there was no request I made that he could not meet), nicely wove in some saxophone with the recorded music, adjusted the volume so that guests could comfortably converse without being overpowered by the music, and was comfortably interactive with our guests.

We used Saxman Slim for cocktail hour and for Dj-ing. WOW--the sax was so amazing for cocktail hour I cannot even thank him enough!! Family and friends were so impressed and even raved about him weeks after. His sax playing was upbeat and fun and classy at the same time. I had videography for my wedding and when i look back and watch the video and hear the sax in the background it always brings a smile to my face--It added such a nice touch to the reception. The DJ-ing was fabulous as well!! The dance floor was packed and everyone had an amazing time. I am soooo glad I went with Saxman Slim for my wedding, I would highly recommend him to anyone. You will not be disapointed!!! Thanks again Saxman!!!

After having been to countless weddings myself, I was introduced to Matt Tritto/Saxman at a friends wedding in 2010. I remember being very impressed with his professionalism, class and incredible selection of music that spanned all age groups and interest. It was without hesitation that we selected him for our wedding. I would urge you to insist on Matt though. He has had others work with for him but they cannot match his talent level and overall appeal. And by the way, he was TREMENDOUS at our wedding. We recieved countless compliments on the music and Matt.

Matt was awesome. I knew him from working weddings at Harry's Harbour a few years back, and I said while hearing him work there that he would play at my wedding-- and of course, he did. He was the first thing I booked when I got engaged, and I was thrilled to work with him! He played everything we asked for, and helped us immensely with our music selection. All of our guests were so pleased with every aspect of our wedding, but especially with saxman slim. Many of them even took pictures next to his car, or snuck in a picture with the man himself (sorry Matt :) haha.

We love saxman slim, and couldn't have asked for a better person to help us with our wedding day! Our wedding and the music especially has gone down in history! I highly recommend him!

Matt did an amazing job as the DJ for our wedding. Our dance floor was packed for the entire night and it was obvious that people were having a great time. He made it a point to honor our requests and touch base with us throughout the night. The fact that Matt plays sax during cocktail hour and dinner is an added bonus and a classy touch that we received tons of compliments on. Matt was prompt and professional and I couldn't recommend him enough.

Saxman was Great!! We received his cd at a local bridal show & thought that the Sax during dinner would add a nice and different twist. He played all of our requested songs as he DJ the rest of the reception. He certainly has a flair for fashion. My husband & I along with our guests really enjoyed him & we are very happy with our decision.

He was fabulous. Everyone thought it must have cost a fortune to have someone play the saxophone during cocktail hour and dinner then DJ but Sax Man Slim was very affordable. I would hire him again if I had to do I all over again. He played great sofa and honored all of the requests I had.

I was soooo impressed with Saxman from the moment I heard him play. He is different because he plays the sax and then switches over to a dj for your reception if you want. He is great to work with and my guest were dancing all night! I wanted him to learn a song for my processional and he did and it was very nice!
I would recommend him to anyone looking for something fun and different!

We wanted to have some fun with our wedding party during the ceremonial dance and he helped us out with a crossfade from a serious song into the safety dance and even found the mario theme for our wedding party's grand entrace. He was fun to work with and did a great job! People still talk about how much fun they had dancing at our wedding...and our wedding was four yeasr ago!

Slim did an excellent job at our outdoor wedding, travelling to West Valley, NY the day after the famous October storm in 2006. Many, many people did not even bother trying to make the trip and others were stuck in their homes. We heard not a peep from Saxman Slim about the weather. He came on time with plenty of time to set up, he played the songs we requested BEAUTIFULLY before and after the ceremony and he was a fun and excellent DJ afterwards, playing all of the music we requested. Please note: Saxman Slim kept the dancing and therefore the warmth alive at a wedding that took place in a tent with broken heaters on a day when snow actually fell on the ground. He was an extremely vital part to our wedding's success - we picked the worst weekend ever and it turned out to be a fantastically fun and memorable experience!

Matt (Saxman Slim) was great. He played all our processional and recessional music, played the sax during the cocktail and dinner hours and then became our DJ after that. He was easy going, helpful when we needed it, and did a great job to help turn our special day in to just that. Thank Matt for your contributions!

My husband and I felt that Saxman Slim was a wonderful addition to our wedding reception. During cocktails and dinner he played the saxophone. After dinner he became the DJ and played both classic and new songs. He need a great job reading our guests and determining what music would keep them dancing all night. I would highly recommend Saxman Slim.

We loved having Saxman Slim at our wedding. He was easy to work with and a lot of fun on the day of. He played live sax during our cocktail hour and DJed for dinner and dancing. We sent him a list of music we enjoyed to give him an idea of our style and he incorporated most of it at the appropriate times, which was impressive because it was a long list. During the reception he did a great job of picking music that kept people out on the dance foor. I would highly recommend using Saxman Slim at your wedding!

I found Saxman Slim from a mailer I received when I signed up for a Bridal Show through the Buffalo news. He understood our vision, worked with us through the whole process and executed the night perfectly. Reception Music, in my opinion, is the single most important component. I still have people tell me that my wedding was one of the best they ever attended. I attribute that to our creativity and Saxman's talent! Jenny & John Krytus Buffalo NY

I really enjoyed working with Matt. He was very prepared, professional, and experienced. Everyone loved the reception music and had a great time. The live sax during dinner and the ceremony was very nice. The only thing that I think might cause hesitation for future brides is that he does not attend the ceremony rehearsal. There was a small glitch during my ceremony that I think would have been prevented had Matt been at rehearsal, but all in all everything else was excellent.

Saxman Slim was not only a wonderful DJ who kept the dance floor full and allowed guests to rest during slow songs, he also played wonderful music during the cocktail and dinner hour. His sax playing was unique and the perfect tone for the beginning of our reception. The transition into DJ was flawless. No complaints!

I loved that I had live saxophone jazz for the cocktail & dinner hours and then a DJ for dancing! Guests were veryimpressed. The only thing is that I would have liked more follow up prior to my wedding. I ended up running up to him before the introductions to tell him who would be coming out w/ each other because he had never finalized it beforehand. As a bride you need all the help you can get!

Saxman Slim responded with the following comments:

A questionnaire is emailed to the bride and groom three weeks before the wedding regarding announcements, song requests and the itinerary. Then a face-to-face meeting is scheduled to discuss the event thoroughly.
