Stuart Sidders - Saxophonist

Solo Sax For Your Garden Party, Wedding Reception or Charity Event

I play solo, covering different genres, jazz, blues and pop using professional backing tracks to accompany me. Check out some sample tracks below and my playlist.

I am happy to select tunes to suit your occasion or take requests.

I will play for free* with any money raised going  towards my chosen charity, Macmillan Cancer Support

Playing In Open Gardens for Charity

As a keen gardener, I love being asked to play in Open Gardens and given the opportunity to help raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support*. Last year I was able to raise over £1400 for the charity from gigs like this.

The video Jazz In Open Gardens will give you an idea of the type of tunes I play and an overview of how I go about it.
