Complete DJ & emcee services. The live sax during cocktails & dinner is just an added bonus.
As your guests arrive, Saxman Slim will perform lively music on the sax to provide a festive cocktail hour atmosphere. After announcing the bridal party, he will tone it down with classy ballads behind dinner. 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

Worth every single penny! Was able to accommodate several unique/unusual requests and when the schedule changed on the fly Matt was totally on top of it. The music was great, both the live saxophone, ceremony selections and of course he kept the dance floor hopping!

Matthew, Saxman Slim, is AMAZING. He is the perfect addition to bring a level of elegance to your wedding reception. Saxman played the saxophone during happy hour and during dinner for our reception. Many guests didn't know there was a live musician present! He played a wide variety of music from Pop to R&B to Queen! After dinner he seamlessly transitioned into "DJ mode". I was worried about the introductions because I have a difficult name and so does my sister, and Matthew took the time to make sure he said them correctly. He also made a mix for my father/daughter dance and he worked with us to make sure that the tracks were perfect. He helped my husband surprise me with a musical performance, using a keyboard, guitar and getting a karaoke track! Saxmn Slim was great to work with, I would honestly recommend him to everyone -- and he's very affordable! :o) THANK YOU!!!

I had my wedding on Oct 4th 2014 and hired Sax Man as my DJ. I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER!!! HE (STEPHEN) WAS AMAZING!!! I wanted something completely different than the normal DJ. I wanted Stephan to play the saxophone for the ceremony and the dinner hour and than be a DJ after.Stephan contacted me back right away after I sent an email requesting information. I had a meeting with him and he went through the music of our choice. He was patient and really took the time to learn what our wedding and what our personalities were! There was a special song request that I had in mind for me to walk down the aisle to and He even went as far as to learn the song for me because it was not on the list (which has thousands of songs on by the way). When it was time for him to be a DJ he kept everyone on the Dance floor and having fun for hours. My guests were begging me to extend the hours so they could keep dancing! He was extremely accommodating in every request I had. I had ton of compliments on my choice of DJ. I would highly recommend Sax Man!!! Worth every Penny!

Steve was wonderful! We absolutely loved working with him. He was so helpful when choosing music at our original meeting and was very responsive when we called him with questions. He even gave great suggestions. Everyone was dancing the entire time. His music during cocktail hour and dinner also was perfect. We will absolutely be recommending him to others.

My mother used Justin for my father's 50th party. When my husband and I were married I was excited to find out that they also worked out of Rochester.

We had Glenn and he did an amazing job! He kept the dance floor packed and some of my guests ended up hiring him for another hour. He had no issue with taking requests. I have been to a lot of weddings and one of by biggest complaints is usually the DJ but he was great and they had amazing pricing!

We had so many compliments!

Saxman Slim, (Matt) was a great choice for our wedding reception music!! Our guests were raving about the sax being played during the cocktail hour and dinner. They were all really impressed because it's so much more unique than the standard DJ. It's almost like we had the best of both worlds in a band and DJ.
As a DJ, he was also great and really kept the party going all night. I really liked that he even got on the dance floor himself a few times!! The guests loved that as well. He was very easy to work with and very flexible and accommodating. Also a great value. Would highly, highly recommend!!

Stephan was truly awesome! My wife and I could not imagine having any other DJ for our special day! Too many 'DJs' around here are just run-of-the-mill.. NOT Saxman Slim!!! They are professional, respectful, and a delight! I will definitely recommend them to everyone I can. Stephan not only did a superb job, he became our friend...
