Clients & Testimonials
Steve Kemp – SFD Asia Director
Brendan's amazing performances were very much appreciated! He helped our brand really stand out from the crowd, the energy and vibe he provided was excellent and client feedback was phenomenal.
Playing alongside the famous It Girls for Virgin Allstars, I performed for Richard Branson at Kensington Roof Gardens in London. It's not often you get booked for a millionaire entrepreneur, so it was a very special evening!
Prestige Elite Records
Brendan is one of the world’s best young, up and coming jazz players. Brendan’s sensual style and clear mastery of the saxophone may put him on a par in years to come along with his great heroes and influences – Lester Young, Charlie Parker and Coleman Hawkins to name but a few…one of the biggest jazz talents of this generation.
Brendan Mills gives an original twist to the best classical tunes with great musical arrangements that makes them a very entertaining and pleasant to listen to...
Juliana & Pete
Our wedding was perfect, thanks largely to the input of Brendan into our day. Not only did he mastermind some really cool aspects of our wedding, his musical genius was amazing plus he managed the smooth running of all musical elements. His skills and presence are world class and his personality and ideas frankly rock.
The people of New Zealand are still talking about him and will be for a very long time!!
Thanks again Brendan!! Xx
BBC World Service
Brendan has been very intuitive whilst working with our brief. Given the tight deadlines and the demanding nature of TV productions, Brendan has done an excellent job of composing original music and sound bites, completely befitting the look and feel of our programme.
Jay Forster (BBC Radio 1)
Cool Track, Will Try Out!
Brendan Mills has been recording (with pianist Hugh Ockenden) a number of old piano manuscripts for me in the past few weeks. He has enthusiastically undertaken the task (which had been turned down by several others before) and has a tremendous “can do” attitude, knowledge and contacts for recording music and the results have been excellent!
Mr & Mrs Sheridan
Brendan, you beat us to it! Thank YOU!! We had absolutely the best day ever and you were a big part of making it so fantastic. Everyone really enjoyed themselves.
Thank you for being such a pleasure to work with and so accommodating (especially for our love of cheesy ballads!)
You were certainly a hit with all of our guest and we will both certainly continue to highly recommend you to all of our friends and colleagues. Hopefully our paths cross again in the future.
All the best with everything.
Thank you again, the new Mr and Mrs Sheridan!
Stuart & Jemima
We just wanted to send you a brief note before we depart on our honeymoon to say a massive, massive thank you. You genuinely smashed it on Saturday! i have never seen so many people on the dance floor for so long and that Garage 30 mins was one of the highlights of my life!! Even my old man was up dancing along to a bit of KC & JoJo which was a spectacle!
The chilled out house session during the drinks reception was absolutely spot on and the singing during the meal was incredible and certainly won you a significant number of new fans (predominantly female!!).
We always knew it would be perfect and you certainly didn't let us down.
Thank you once again, and good luck finalising the plans for your big day. It is an incredible occasion and one i will certainly never forget until the day I die!!
Bede & Mireille
Mate, it is you that we need to thank! You absolutely made our weekend...everyone is still talking about how much you smashed it!
The way you ran the drinks, dinner and dancing - it was awesome.
Thanks a million for last Thursday – we all had a ball!
‘You are amazing! Thank you so so so much. You were absolutely perfect. We can’t thank you enough!
Chris & Kerri
Our wedding was absolutely perfect yesterday, then you & Rocks starting playing and took it up 100 levels! You two were incredible, thanks for making our day even more special!
Kavita Sanger ‘Big Four Financial Organisation’
Just want to thank you for last night - the music was amazing, the saxophone was a great surprise to the team. Everyone was very much impressed with the entertainment.
Sophie & Martin
A little more of a formal follow up furthermore than the brief messages the other day...
We want to sincerely thank you not only for the big day but everything you helped with in the year and a half planning it and helping us solve all of the obstacles in our way.
You are an absolute pleasure to work with and it was the best experience to get to know you and Work with you during that time.
The day was beyond our expectations and every single guest has mentioned you since with the biggest compliments to your performances!!!
Thank you, and Ross, for everything - we will never forget how perfect the day was!
All our love,
Hoxton Whores (Producers)
Cool saxophone dude !!!
Brendan has been teaching our son Philippe for about 2 ½ years now. During that time Phil has improved his playing to a large degree, passing his grade 2 exam about a year ago and recently being invited to join his school band.
Phil always looks forward to his lessons and Brendan, whilst always maintaining firm in his direction (often necessary with our Phil), never forgets that playing music should be above all, an entertaining past-time.
Olivia & James
Just a little note to say a huge thank you. James and I have finally had time to ourselves to reflect on our amazing day and evening. You were such a big part in our day and you absolutely excelled yourself. It was so kind of you to go that extra mile to help me make the day superb.
From the time you started to the very last long we had guests and family coming up to James and I saying how incredible you were and how much they were enjoying listening to your amazing talent.
We can't thank you enough - you made it so lovely and so many amazing memories.
Gemma & Matthew
Thank you so much for organising the music for us it was perfect! All set up when we got there and the guys were amazing. Can’t thank you enough!
Jenna & Matthew
We can easily say you were the highlight of our wedding day. Absolutely amazing, more than we could of ever imagined.
EVERYONE is talking about you!!
You & DJ ET completely got us & the vibe we wanted.
And the last set... That was the BEST, we still can't get over it!!
Jenna & Matt xx
Sophie & Tom
Brendan Mills literally blew us all away when DJ'ing at our wedding recently. Usually at weddings or parties there are periods of time where the dance floor is empty or only a couple of people reluctantly dancing on it, but at our wedding there was always a full dance floor. Brendan's ability to read a crowd and direct the music accordingly is amazing. We have incredibly high standards and pay attention to the smallest of details, but with Brendan's set at our wedding there was no fault at all! During the meal Brendan serenaded everyone with his sax solo followed by some singing and it literally set the most incredible atmosphere. There was no awkwardness or lagging during the day, as Brendan would spot this a mile off and start some musical entertainment. We had ages from 3 years old to 80 years old and EVERYONE loved him!!
Brendan Mills is a musical genius, diamond geezer, insanely passionately about what he does, so we would 1000% Brendan to be your choice of party or wedding DJ! Brendan has even inspired the most un-musical person, to start to learn the saxophone!
Sophie & Lee
Kara & Anthony
We couldn't have been happier, It was incredible! Loved every second of it! You are so talented and gifted at what you do.
Brendan! Ma Man! Absolutely smashed it last night mate!! We’ve had so many compliments on you, and you’ve made our day amazing, you were awesome! Thanks for everything, really appreciate all your effort!
Mr & Mrs Williams
Hello Brendog (we affectionately gave you this name when talking about you before the wedding and now feel it is appropriate to address you as such - just this once!).
It is we who should be thanking the two of you... you were totally awesome! Everything we could have hoped for and more!! We didn't want it to end and were sad when we had to leave.
We received endless complements from our guests and even had some say it was the best wedding they had ever been to - this we know was largely down to the great music and entertainment that you provided!! People say getting married is one of the best days of your life - without a shadow of a doubt this was true for Tom and I. We would do it all over again in an instant if we could.
We never expected live garage MC action... or the acoustic rendition of Thinking Out Loud... or the off the cuff personalised additional verse... all together priceless and truly unforgettable!
Tom spent the first part of a meeting at work today singing your praises to a colleague due to get married in London next year... she was going to check you out on YouTube so you may well be hearing from her!
Much love, the new Mr and Mrs Williams (that's going to take some getting used to!)
Mr & Mrs Sear
We are so pleased we chose you and your team for our wedding. It really couldn't of been anymore perfect!!!
From Ross playing at the church, your set through the reception drinks, your awesome live sets through dinner, and of course the whole DJ set with the house tracks all night... it really couldn't of been better... (well only if you could of played all morning as well lol). You even chucked in an acoustic song at the very end!
All the older day guests loved the whole day music and of course all my rowdy mates loved the day & evening stuff so massive thank you mate for making our wedding amazing!!
Your tracks were obviously great, I'll be listening out for your new release and many thanks for the Chris Lake track... funny enough I downloaded that Monday after you told me what it was... what a banger!!
All the best for the future mate, and with your career if we don't cross paths again.
Mr & Mrs Sear 🙂
Thanks Brendan - he was absolutely excellent (Laurence Sax) - as was the guy who came with him. Made such a great atmosphere. Thank you!!
Berkeley Castle (2015 Wedding Venue of the Year)
We had the real pleasure of working with musician Brendan Mills & pianist Ross at Saturday's wedding. The duo entertained guests in the Drawing Rooms before wow'ing everyone with a cover of John Legend which sounded incredible in the Great Hall! Brendan not only DJ'd during the evening reception but also interacted with the crowd on his saxophone!
With our Bride & Groom over the moon at Brendan & Ross's performances throughout the day, they come highly recommended from Berkeley Castle!
DJ Roog (Subliminal/Harsdoul)
Victor Simonelli (NYC/World)
Thanks, Will work it at all upcoming gigs.
Rachel, Marketing Executive
Just wanted to thank you for doing such a terrific job last night! The music really did make the whole party!
The number of great things people have said about you has been fantastic - and I know the hotel took your details so I hope this leads to more business for you!
Searching for the right Saxophone teacher is far from easy; many teachers get bogged down in the theory of music early on, stifling enthusiasm and making the learning process dull. It is perhaps unsurprising that so many give up in these early stages; frustrated by slow progress and disillusioned that the dream was unattainable. After I experienced this approach first hand, I sought out Brendan; determined that there must be a better way.
Brendan’s approach to teaching the Saxophone is a breath of fresh air; he strikes a superb balance between teaching the technical playing skills and theory necessary to master the Saxophone; ensuring the learning process progresses fast, with precision, but is first and foremost “Fun”. His passion and enthusiasm for the instrument is infectious, and one leaves after his lessons eager to get home and practice the skills just learned. I find myself appropriately challenged, highly motivated and confident to practice what I have learned during the class on my own. Under his skilful guidance and encouragement, I have progressed quickly from being a complete beginner, to playing sections of Pop, Jazz and Blues that would have seemed far out of reach only a few weeks ago. I eagerly look forward to each new lesson, assured in the knowledge that I will come away with a step-change in playing skills and the excitement of something new to master before the next lesson. For these reasons I would not hesitate to recommend Brendan to anyone wanting to learn the Saxophone, or who is dissatisfied with their current progress. One lesson is all you will need to appreciate what learning the Saxophone should feel like!
James Fairburn and Laura Cross
Brendan, you absolutely smashed it last night. We were so pleased to have you be part of our big day. Everyone, old and young, has said how brilliant you were. We’ve never seen a wedding dance floor like it. Thank you very much indeed. James and Laura.
Rendezvous Events Ltd
We first used Brendan about two years ago, ever since then he has been our go to sax-man! He’s an incredible player, adapts to any genre and has an amazing talent to improvise over any track. We find that using live sax as part of our DJ sets adds a huge amount of energy to the dance floor and a live feel that can never be replicated by a recorded song. The real reason we love Brendan though is he creates a great visual too, playing amongst the crowd on a dance floor, walking in-between tables creating a rapport with guests at a sit down or strutting his stuff on stage. Excellent musician, total professional and a real showman!
Mr & Mrs Byham
On behalf of Jodie and I thanks so much for making our wedding day so special. You are really talented and you definitely added something extra to our day.
Lots of people were coming up to me complimenting yourself 🙂
Mr & Mrs Byham
AJ King (KISS FM)
"This is just crazy. Jammy - Cover Me. Massive tune!"
Well Brendan, it’s the day after the festivities and what festivities there were!
Al and Tom were fantastic! The music was spot on and very much appreciated by all. The afternoon was a great success, Paul had remained clueless and it was a wonderful surprise.
Please do pass on our great thanks for making the afternoon such a memorable one, and thank you too for being such a pleasure to work with!
I would not hesitate to recommend you!
Thank you very much for playing, a lot of compliments in the audience – you were absolutely fantastic! Will certainly keep you in mind for the future. The directors were also VERY impressed by your performance.
Nicolina & Christopher
Chris and I would like to say a massive thank you to you for playing at our wedding and making our evening so amazing! Your music was just perfect and everyone had such a fun time and a good old dance!
'Bella Notte' was just magical, so thank you so much for learning that for us - absolute dream come true! And 'My Cherie Amour' for Mum!!! You guys are amazing!
Please pass on our thanks to the guys too! The singing and keys were flawless - loved everything. Everyone has commented on how great you all were - from the MC'ing, sax on the floor and acoustic set at the end! We definitely didn't want the night to end, so thank you so much!!!
It's crazy how life kicks back in after the wedding and I have to admit there's a tiny part of me that doesn't really want to close the door on it yet as we just had such a wonderful time!
Just a quick email, following on from our honeymoon to say a big thank you for the night of our wedding.
Everyone was very impressed and thought you made the night.
Hope everything goes well for you in the future mate.
Danny Lee (Kiss FM)
Cat & Reece
Oh my goodness Brendan I just want to drop you a line to say you made my wedding day amazing: from the beautiful ceremony music, your amazingly talented sax performances along with your band and the live sets throughout the day right up to getting my dance floor heaving all through the night with your amazing DJ skills!
Everybody has been asking for your details: you just know how to get a party going! Thank you so much we can't wait to have you back again!
Brendan Mills was recommended to us by a mutual acquaintance, when we were looking for some live lobby music for our AGM. Brendan looks the part and is the part. We had our function at a large hotel in the centre of London and Brendan arrived looking crisp and prepared. He stood in the lobby of the hotel playing improvised jazz for almost 2 hours straight, not once showing any signs of losing his quality.
An outstanding musician and a fine professional. Brendan is worth every penny and will exceed your expectations of what a classical saxophone composition can achieve. It’s the relaxed and professional atmosphere that Brendan provided us that day, that I believe was key to our productive meeting.
We have used Brendan at every corporate event since and he has become a celebrity within our business. This man is an 11/10.
Brendan brings a wealth of professional experience to his teaching, being at home with everything from Bach to Charlie Parker to hip-hop. He structured a programme for me after a careful assessment, and has provided masses of advice on style and technique that has helped to improve my playing beyond measure, from near-beginner to almost-grade 6 candidate.
And I have really appreciated Brendan's flexible approach. He provides direction, close tuition and guidance when required, but is no tram-line teacher: he listens and leaves space for your own ideas and will encourage you to think for yourself and to take the lead when you're ready - and is not above throwing in the odd unexpected challenge ot two! At the same
time, he is always unfailingly supportive, and his enthusiasm is a fantastic spur to progress.
Starting regular saxophone tuition with Brendan back in December 2009 turned out to be a very good move indeed, and I haven't regretted it for a minute.
Kirsty Hall Associates
Brendan, thank you so so so so much!! You were just incredible and I had so many amazing comments from people about the music. The entire female contingent of the party totally fell in love with you as well!
Natalie & Alex
Just wanted to say thank you SO much for playing such great music at our wedding ceremony and for the rest of the magical day. The music sounded awesome and everyone commented on it! Thank you so much for doing a good job. We would recommend you to our family and friends.
We also hope you enjoyed Puglia and Castello Manaci as much as we love it!
Shelley & Dwight
Thank you so much for being apart of our wedding.
Everyone is still speaking about how talented you are, I'm so glad I found you at the wedding show. You played a big part at our wedding and made it so special.
I wish you all the best and will definitely recommend you to any friends or family having an event or wedding.
All the best
Joanne Charlton, Publishing Editor
A DJ plays a huge part in how successful an event is and Brendan ensured ours was a big success. He worked the crowd perfectly and they loved it when he got on the saxophone.
Leon & Lisa
Thank you so much for your amazing performance at the wedding, you got the music spot on, the music completely captured the mood and atmosphere and everyone has said they had an amazing time.
I have attached a couple of pictures taken by a family member and will send over any from the professional photographer.
Once again, thank you so much and I hope we get the opportunity to work with you again one day, maybe an event at the football club Lisa and myself run.
Leon and Lisa
Kirsty & James
Happy New Year! Hope you have arrived in NZ safe and sound. We just wanted to thank you again for the most amazing music on Friday.
You told us you would smash it and you did more than that!! Thank you so very much.
Every little detail was perfect - we could sing your praises forever and a day.
Kirsty & James xx
Brendan has been teaching me for nearly two years now and every lesson has been a pleasure. Not only is Brendan a gifted musician, he is a brilliant teacher and achieves the perfect balance between encouraging and challenging. After my first month of lessons Brendan told me that I would do my first 'gig' 5 months later. I thought he was joking. As that 6 month marker approached I realised he was serious and we prepared to play a piece in an open mic jazz session with Dave Silk's brilliant band.
The fact I did it is a testament to Brendan's ability to build confidence and skill from scratch. I was 51 when I started learning and sometimes have periods when I can’t practice. When this happens we just enjoy playing duets, learn some theory or work out new pieces by ear so the lesson is never wasted. It is great to have a teacher who is fun, flexible, does not mess about when it comes to getting it right and is an inspirational performer. He gets my 5 star rating!
Brendan is passionate about the saxophone and this comes across brilliantly in his teaching. His enthusiasm for his pupil to get the best out of the instrument and the lesson is unbounded and his enthusiasm infectious. But whilst always encouraging and positive, he teaches to a high technical standard, which must be the building block for good sax playing.
I am a beginner, but feel that I have fallen on my feet with such an outstanding teacher.
Reece and Catherine
You MADE our day! You were so amazing - I always knew you were special and an act of true fate brought us together. We love you so much.
Brendan creates a great visual too, playing amongst the crowd on a dance floor, walking in-between tables creating a rapport with guests at a sit down or strutting his stuff on stage.
Charlie Tee (Kiss Fresh)
Love the track! . . .new single sound really big!
I’ve had the pleasure to work with the pure class talent that is Brendan Mills
Evgeniya & Paul
Thank you for sharing this day with us. The music was fantastic and I loved my entry song!
Our guests commented on the fabulous sax music you were playing so we really want to extend a massive thank you for being there with us. Paul & I really enjoyed it, even though we were running around (!!), our ears are always "switched on" for jazz 🙂
Sarah & Adam
I just wanted to say we had such an amazing night with you performing and being our DJ at our wedding. Everyone loved the Sax and thought it was quite a nice touch on top of the music. We wish we could have the day all over again and we'd definitely have you guys with us. All the best for the future.
Brendan Mills - WOW what a teacher!! He makes learning an instrument fun and easy to understand. I am 48 years old and have always wanted to learn to play saxophone. I thought I would finally give it a try but was expecting a music teacher to be a bit harsh and stuffy, but Brendan was excellent.
He is to be able to give real confidence and motivation to learn. Thanks to Brendan I am really enjoying my lessons and I am improving really quickly.
Francesca & Tristan
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding - everyone absolutely loved you and we had such a great time!
All the best,
Francesca & Tristan
Thank you SO much for last week, I had such a brilliant birthday and thoroughly enjoyed my party. Everyone was very complimentary of you, a brilliant surprise for my friends with your many talents! Impressed faces all round. Thank you for keeping everyone happy. Until next time 🙂
What an amazing day and night and made even more perfect by you playing for us. So many compliments to pass over to you. Really couldn't fault anything. We are on cloud 9 with our wedding. It was truly magical so thank you soooo much.
We will be having a church blessing and after party so will be in touch.
Lisa Collins, Head of Business Services
The music was great and so was your sax playing!
Nicola & Gary
You were AMAZING!! People are still talking about how good you were. You made the wedding, so I have to thank you HUGELY'
Amy and James Kemp
We handed the musical reins over to Brendan before our wedding - and he absolutely made our day. After just 30 minutes chatting about music we both like, Brendan seemed to know our tastes even better than we did. He planned a programme of music (delivered by an incredibly talented group of musicians - they all took our breath away) for our entire day - we enjoyed beautiful and moving music during our Church ceremony, followed by an afternoon of easy-listening jazz and soul, which moved seamlessly in to an impromptu garage/pop/RnB rave that saw grandparents, friends and a few curious villagers jumping and jiving in to the wee hours!
The mood was fun, funny, surprising - and most importantly, classy. People are still talking about how much fun they had on our day - and we love, love, love looking at the photos of all our friends and family having such a wonderful time. We undoubtedly owe all that to Brendan and couldn't possibly recommend him more highly.
Jo & Al Mackie
The biggest Thank You from us all for making our wedding party one that everyone will remember for a long time to come! What a star you are! Was so great to meet you!
I have been a professional freelance drummer/percussionist since 1975, with much experience of working with some of the top artist(e)s, vocalist(e)s and musicians in the best recording studios in the country. I speak as one who knows the difference between an average result, and a beautiful balanced recorded sound. I have been very pleasantly surprised, delighted and amazed at the superb results obtained by Brendan. In addition, he has a great ‘attitude’, is accommodating and extremely professional – a joy to work with!
I Love it. Full support Radio & Club!
Thank you for helping to make it such a great evening, we all really had a good time.
Lots of people have raved about your & Jamie's performances.
A MASSIVE thank you for being absolutely amazing at our wedding, the amount of comments I got from our guests like 'where did you find him, he's fantastic'! etc.
Personally, you blew me away, I had that vision of you walking down the steps playing and you blew that vision out of the water!!! You really were fantastic! I got a short video of it which I keep watching....amazing!!
I just wanted to thank you so much for your part in my 40th birthday party celebrations last Saturday, I knew you would not disappoint!!
We absolutely loved the sax and the acoustic garage set you performed. Everyone loved your music and are still commenting now on how fantastic you were!!
Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart, I'll never forget how you helped create one of the best nights ever!
Can not wait for more in 2019!!
Charlotte & Sam
Happy new year!
I just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you so so much!
You were absolutely amazing and we can never thank you enough for the amazing job you did.
We are still having messages now saying how amazing you were which is so lovely!
I will pass your details on to everyone who asks 🙂
Thank you so much again! You are amazing and so talented!

What a fantastic record!
Greg & Nadine
Caroline & Tony
We just want to say a massive thank you for your performance on Saturday. It was absolutely brilliant and created a fantastic atmosphere. The sax, piano, singing, dj'ing - brilliant, thank you.
We loved it all and the piano at the end was the perfect finish to an amazing day. Thank you.
Buffalo Beats have produced some outstanding tracks for my artists. We were thoroughly impressed with their entire song writing and production process from start to finish. We would happily recommend them without any hesitation. Great job!
Steven & Georgina
Just wanted to send a HUGE thank-you for making Steven & Georgie's Wedding so memorable on Saturday - everyone had a fantastic time and the dance floor was never empty all evening.
The whole day & evening were a great success and I'm sure that many of their friends will be looking to book you in the future.
Jennie (Steve's mum) xxx
I just wanted to send a message to say how amazing Sam was at our wedding. He was such a highlight and everyone thought he was really really great! Please could you pass on our thanks, as he really made our day extra special. I now know exactly what you mean about us having the A Team!
Thanks again for organising!
Tiffanie & Andrew
We can not thank you enough for performing for us at our wedding on Friday . Every single one of our guests from my 17year old brother (the one requesting stormzy) to my 90 year old grandad, all said how incredible the music was all the way through.
Every performance was absolulety perfect from walking into the church to the very last song at the end of the evening. It was so tastefully & professionally thought out and every song choice worked so well, I don't think the dance floor emptied for a second. Even the impromptu guitar session at the end as we couldn't get enough was AMAZING and the random music request from the priest was handled so well.
Even the staff at the hotel was raving about it the next morning.
We honestly can not praise or recommend you highly enough.
Thank you once again and I'm sure we're see you again soon as we have passed on your details to some of our guests who are planning their own wedding for next year.
Many Many thanks again for making our day complete.
Tiffanie & Andrew
I have found Brendan to be an excellent, positive and patient non clock-watching tutor, with a good eye for detail; he is very adaptable with lessons and has kept my interest and enjoyment in playing very high. I feel I am progressing further and faster than I had with other tutors. It’s nice to have a tutor who can do gigs in known establishments, I feel it adds credibility to what he is teaching. I would have no hesitation in recommending Brendan to my associates & friends.
I've recently been working with a talented ambitious young saxophonist named Brendan Mills. His cheerful attitude, intuitive nature, initiative taking manner have made him a refreshing young talent to work with, so much so that not only have I worked with him on live performances but also on recording projects between London and NYC!
Laura and Steve Baster
Just wanted to say thank you for making our day perfect! The music was brilliant & everyone thought you were amazing!!
Until 18 months ago I had never picked up any musical instrument and could not read one note of music. Thanks to Brendan I gave a performance on the sax recently to over 400 (at a prize giving evening) and received a standing ovation!
As a Headteacher in an Inner London school I work with a lot of teachers and have got to know what makes a good teacher. Brendan is not good ... he is outstanding.
The ingredients of an outstanding teacher are: subject knowledge, enthusiasm and high expectations. Brendan has all of these and more. Each lesson is well-structured and I make a lot of progress. They are also a great deal of fun.
I have chosen to learn to read music and we switch between classical, jazz, pop and other forms that I’d never heard of.
I fully recommend Brendan as a great teacher and a great talent.
Mr. & Mrs. Whittaker
Brendan is the consummate professional. An absolute dream to work with! We booked him for our wedding in Kent and after a five minute chat; we both fell in love with him. This man knows his music like nobody I’ve ever met and he loves it like a child!!
Brendan played saxophone for our entrance, ceremony, first dance, speeches and then moved to the sound system to give us one of the best disco nights of our lives. There’s nothing that Brendan Mills can’t do!
Sanjit & Lisa
I just wanted to say a big thank you for all of your hard work and professionalism during the day of our wedding. Music as you know was always a big thing to me and many of our guests and so it was extremely pleasing to see that when you guys came down to the venue you completely handled it and didn't fail to deliver. In and amongst all of the ladies screaming for you Brendan there was also some really good feedback regarding your performance, singing, sax, Dj'ing and whatever else you did to make the day a success. It really was a great day made all the better for having you guys there. Keep up the good work!
Jade & George
I need to say a huge THANK YOU to you guys!!!
Thank you so much for everything you did, it was perfect. We will definitely be booking you again!
Charlotte and Niranjan
Further to my previous email, we just want to say thank you so much for performing and DJing at our wedding. We absolutely LOVED you playing the live sax alongside our first dance song and everyone was so surprised! The drinks reception music you played was exactly what we had hoped for - so much so that we were trying to finish our photos more quickly so we could enjoy the music properly. Our dancefloor was full all night and the mix of music you played was brilliant! We honestly had the best evening and we can't thank you enough for bringing the evening to life.
Thanks again Brendan - we loved everything!
Charlotte and Niranjan x
James & Anita
Thank you and thanks for playing such a great set. One guest sent us a text which described the garage set in particular as the 'greatest music at a wedding ever' and another said that the Mc'ing was his favourite part of the entire night (mine was probably the acoustic garage set!). Thanks also for the extra session at the end when the coaches didn't turn up (they blamed an admin error at the depo!). Also thank you for the customised first dance as well it was superb. If there is anywhere that we can provide a reference we would also love to pass on just how much we enjoyed the music and if you ever play gigs in London please let us know otherwise hopefully see you at another wedding soon!
James & Anita
Niki Belucci (Radio FG/Worldwide)
Great EP, thanks!
Nick Hook (RedSeaDance Radio Show)
Good EP. Cover Me is the best club track for me.
Kirsty & Meg
We just wanted to send you a quick email to say a massive thank you for making our wedding day go off with such a bang! The music was better than we ever could've imagined, more than we could ever have wished for and EVERYONE loved you. Especially Cassie our bridesmaid who is yet to be proposed to but is already saying she will be booking you for her nuptials!
You have been amazing and thank you again.
Best wishes and love from
Meg and Kirst x
Brendan I just wanted to thank you again with all my heart for a truly magical evening and you were that special ingredient. We keep playing little video clips and your musical talent is outstanding. So nice when talent is combined with a lovely personality too and that’s very much you. Everybody young and old, male and female fell a little bit in love with you for different reasons. I’m now thinking of a repeat or perhaps a summer garden party so I will definitely be back in touch soon.
Thanks so much again
Mr & Mrs Clarke
Our wedding was at the amazing Aynhoe Park House which is well known for its crazy parties and one of our main aims for the day was for it to be one big party and celebration, music is super important to us and was always going to play a huge part in creating the atmosphere that we were after...this is where Brendan came in!
Having a live Saxophone player on the day was on our must have list. However not the typical jazz sax player, it needed to be more current and Brendan does this best! He simply made the day and was the most talked about part of our day... i think he out shined my dress even! There were different parts of the day that required completely different approaches with music and Brendan worked with us in the run up to ensure we were all on the same page. He seemed to know exactly what we wanted without us having to go into to much detail, we were conscious that we didn't want it to be too 'staged' and wanted to give Brendan as much free reign as possible to play whatever he felt was best at the time. He did this perfectly from the Ceremony, through dinner and the evening and after party (when the oldies went to bed).
The after party (1am-6am!) was where it properly kicked off (or it 'properly went in' to use a Brendan terminology!) it was amazing! His DJ-ing skills are some of the best we have seen and him playing the Sax while mixing it up on the decks until 6am was just incredible!
We are already trying to work out when we can have another massive party just so we can invite Brendan! 1 year anniversary maybe...?
Brendan has an in depth knowledge and great enthusiasm for the saxophone. He brings these qualities to every lesson.

Just a quick email from Lisa and I to thank Verna and the band for yesterday and helping make it an amazing day for us, everyone loved them. We booked Strong Sensation for our wedding and were thrilled with their classy performance. The first dance song was spot on. Also a special thanks to the saxophonist for his role in ceremony, he was brilliant.
Sadie & Danny
Thanks for the email. It's difficult to express how awesome you all were on the night. Our friends and family have not stopped telling us how brilliant you were, to quote "that music was the best we've ever had at any wedding or party!"
Thank you for dealing with the logistical challenges so well and apologies again from us for arriving upstairs so late after dinner, I hope you weren't rushing around too much.
Ross, thanks for the daytime entertainment, it worked perfectly. We should have got you to play the exit music!
Brendan, epic sax/DJ/MC skills. I think I saw some people forgetting to dance because they were so astounded!
Please pass on our thanks to Dee, Lifford, the rest of the band. They were all brilliant.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you and are desperately trying to think of another event to get you in for!

One word for your recording and performance: CLASS
You are one of the best musicians I have heard - You're a legend.
I want to say a massive thank you for Friday you were insane! Safe to say the night certainly went off (especially the last hour when we took over the stage!) the vocals were awesome!!!
It was such a great atmosphere and everyone has been talking about the band so we were so pleased so a very big thank you!
He’s Mr Consistent! From the outset he has always been welcoming, friendly, positive and patient. I always look forward to every lesson. Always challenging, but Brendan’s methods always include humour and enthusiasm. Even my neighbours have commented on my progress! I always leave each lesson feeling a sense of accomplishment!
Dear Brendan. I just wanted to thank you and Jamie so much ... you were great!

A huge thank you for being such a special part of our day. It was more than we could have dreamt of and a big part of that was you! Your talent is beyond us. The thank you cards continue to flood through the door and almost ALL comment on how brilliant and unique your music was! You really made it very special for us, we loved how you interacted with everyone on the dance floor and got the party going until the very end. Thank you so much for grabbing your guitar and signing these last few songs for us on the steps. It is moments like that which formed our magical day and will be treasured memories for years to come.
Mr & Mrs Sear
We are so pleased we chose you and your team for our wedding. It really couldn’t of been anymore perfect!!!
From Ross playing at the church, your set through the reception drinks, your awesome live sets through dinner and of course the whole DJ set with the house tracks all night... it really couldn’t of been better... (well only
if you could of played all morning as well lol) You even chucked in an acoustic song at the very end!
All the older day guests loved the whole day music and of course all my rowdy mates loved the day & evening stuff so massive thank you mate for making our wedding amazing!!
Your tracks were obviously great, I’ll be listening out for your new release and many thanks for the Chris Lake track... funny enough I downloaded that Monday after you told me what it was…what a banger!!
All the best for the future mate, and with your career if we don’t cross paths again.
Mr & Mrs Sear 🙂
Thank you SO much for making the night such fun and a huge success. You were absolutely brilliant!! We loved every minute of your set and your friend was fantastic, thank you for bringing him.
You were so organised leading up to the event and then on the night you exceeded all my expectation, thank you form the bottom of my heart.

My partner and I booked Brendan for a 4 hour Sax and DJ set for our engagement party. Brendan made the night one to remember. We loved that Brendan comes out on the dance floor whilst doing the DJ set with his sax to interact with the guests. He really accommodates every age group and was a dream to work with! We cannot recommend Brendan enough.
Brendan is one of the most charismatic and musically sensitive people I have ever worked with.
Mr and Mrs Curley
Firstly, WOW! The music blew us away and we have had nothing but compliments from our guests about all musicians. Ross was really really great and made sure the day ran smoothly. We were really impressed and currently trying to relive every moment of it.
Secondly I want to give a huge shout out and appreciation to Jamie (I believe it was) the vocalist? He was unbelievable and such a gentleman. He came and shook my dads hand and had some really kind things to say. His performance was incredible and got the crowd going.
We will be sure recommending you Brendan.

Our son James is one of the most demanding and unforgiving clients you could ever expect to have, despite being but a teenager. He wanted a saxophonist for his Birthday Party and we were secretly feeling sorry for the musician who had to come along and endure our son’s wild requests and demands.
In steps Brendan Mills, who not only delivered hours of beautiful and melodic saxophone – but who also placated our son with some impromptu lessons and even played some of his favourite TV themes on his saxophone! Not since he became a teenager have we seen James enjoy himself so much. ALL of the credit goes to Brendan, an absolutely dream to work with and to date the best live musician I've ever has the pleasure to see.
I've been so impressed with Brendan, both as a talented musician and as a teacher. Brendan has tailored his friendly approach to my needs and skill level (and musical taste!). More than anything else he has given me the inspiration to keep going. I would highly recommend Brendan as a music teacher to anybody.
Sandy & Jaime
Awesome job at our wedding! So many of our guests told us how much they enjoyed the music. Loved you working the crowd with the sax accompaniment which worked brilliantly and kept the party going. Thanks for the great tunes and a fantastic night!
And also, a big thank you for all your work before the wedding, meeting with us and also talking to our drinks reception singer about her requirements. You're a proper diamond, Brendan Mills!
Michelle and Stuart
