30+ Incredible Wedding Bands with Saxophone

Invented in the 1840s by Belgian instrument maker, Adolphe Sax, the Saxophone has transcended its original classical roots to become an essential part of the modern bandleader’s arsenal.

From ragtime and jazz to soul, pop, hip-hop and Ibiza dance classics, the trusty sax has consistently weaved its way into every genre imaginable.

The majority of wedding bands are made up of the core instruments such as guitar, keys, bass and drums but beyond this, sax is by far the most popular request, especially for larger line-ups. But what makes this instrument such an incredible tour de force in the world of live wedding bands?

Wedding Bands with Horn Section

Whilst sax can add variety, melody and visual interest all on its own, the saxophone really comes to life when joined by its close allies, the trumpet and trombone, to create a full-blown, roof-raising horn section.

A horn section (or brass section) is a fantastic addition to a whole range of live wedding bands, from swing and soul bands to modern pop and R&B. Together, the rich harmonies they form create an explosive rhythmic sound that’s certain to get your wedding guests in the party mood.
