Full Description
Sharply suited and booted, Robert Benson captivates audiences with heartfelt performances on saxophone. His sweet, yet soulful tone has become a signature sound setting him apart from other saxophonists, always tasteful and never overly indulgent. Acoustic covers of modern pop artists such as Bruno Mars, The Beatles, Amy Winehouse, Adele, etc. are reworked into unique instrumental arrangements to deliver something fresh, yet familiar. Available as a solo act accompanied with bespoke backing tracks played through a small PA speaker, or as a duo with an acoustic guitarist. Lounge-jazz set also available upon request. Song requests can often be accommodated. PLI and PAT certified. Noise-limiter friendly (below 85db)! Please watch the showreel below.

Absolutely Bloody Fantastic
Absolutely Bloody Fantastic. Robert was incredible. We hired Robert to play for our wedding and the amount of compliments we have had saying how fantastic he was. The day wouldn't have been the same without him. Thank you!

The sound of his playing was unreal!
Robert was a fantastic inclusion for our wedding on November 22 2019. Throughout our contact with him, he was extremely helpful and professional. On the day, the sound of his playing was unreal - we had so many guests compliment him and it was super to give him freedom to play what he wanted without us worrying. He comes highly recommended!

Brilliant music enjoyed by all
Excellent evening. Robert arrived early with plenty of time to set up and sound check. Ensured sound levels were exactly what we wanted. Brilliant music enjoyed by all - we have had lots of positive comments. Would recommend without any reservations and if needed would definitely use Robert again. Robert is polite and personable as well!

You set the tone for a truly magical day!
Robert played at our wedding in September and was absolutely fantastic. Our wedding reception was held in a Tipi tent with a Festival theme and Robert played for a couple of hours as guests arrived and before dinner. Would absolutely recommend for any occasion. Thank you so much Robert, you set the tone for a truly magical day!

Our guests thoroughly enjoyed him!
We couldn’t recommend Robert enough! We had him performing at our wedding on Friday and every single one of our guests thoroughly enjoyed him. We asked for a specific song for our ceremony and he learned it and performed it perfectly. Thank you for being part of our special day
