About The Montage Quartet

The saxophone is an amazing instrument.  Used a lot in 80's pop music, the instrument is so versatile and works well in classical, jazz and other genres. If you love saxophones and want some entertainment for your wedding or event that is a bit different and showcases this wonderful instrument, why not book a saxophone quartet for the day?
 
The Montage Quartet (The MQ) are an energised, fun, stylish, professional saxophone quartet available for hire.
 
We perform as an acoustic ensemble, ideal for wedding ceremonies and receptions, garden parties, tv shows, house parties and corporate events.  We also perform as the MQ horns with a live band, so can transition from day to night.
 
The MQ play a diverse range of music including Classical, Jazz, Dixie, Gatsby, Pop and well-known tunes. A lot of our charts are original arrangements and we are known for our Beatles covers and Gatsby-style music.
 
We play from ipads and play some music from memory so can roam around the audience to add to our entertainment value.
 
Our standard repertoire is listed on our website.  At an event, we can play a bit of everything, or tailor our set to feature one particular style of music. We can, with advance warning, do special arrangements on request if you want us to perform a specific song or piece of music.
 
Please reach out to us should you like any further information.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your starting price?

We will need to provide individual quotes for bookings. We need to factor in travel time and how long you want us to play for. We won’t over charge you as we want to stay in contact and hope that you will use us for future bookings. We charge competitive prices and, for the money we charge, you will get a high standard group of performers who will conduct themselves professionally at your event.

What services do you offer?

We play as an ensemble and can be used as background music, standing or sitting in an area to generate sound but not be the main focus during drinks or a meal. Alternatively, we can perform on stage as a main act with a live band, backing tracks or roaming around an audience to entertain.

What is included in the wedding package?

We normally offer 2 x 1 hour sets as a standard offering. However, we can be flexible. For example, if you want us to play during a wedding ceremony e.g. hymns and music whilst signing the register, we can flex and include this. Likewise, we can offer a larger package with a full band for evening entertainment as well. Our job is to support you with your requirements for the day, and we pride ourselves on listening to your needs and providing what you need to make your day even more special.

How far in advance should I contact you?

We currently have openings for 2018 and 2019. We do get booked up quickly for popular dates in July and August each year. The sooner you are able to get in contact with us the better, especially if there is a particular song you want us to perform for you so that we can put an arrangement together. That said, we are always able to step in on short notice for whatever reason. If we are available, we would love to come and play for you.

Size of musical group:

For an acoustic ensemble, there are four of us. For the acoustic group, we do not need any amplification. We play from iPads and can fit into a small area. With a band for an evening function, there are 9 of us. We would need to bring amplification for the band and have more equipment.

Repertoire:

Examples of our repertoire can be found on our website. We are known for our Beatles covers and Gatsby style music. Our standard repertoire is a mix of light classical, jazz, pop covers and well known tunes.

Is it possible to request something that is not in the repertoire?

Absolutely! A lot of our charts are original arrangements and we have the ability to arrange something specific for you. Let us know if there is a special song you would like to hear.

Are you able to travel?

We are able to travel anywhere in the South of England easily. We are happy to play internationally and further afield but may need to negotiate travel and accommodation for these requests.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

We can do depending on timings, locations etc. Often we are booked for an afternoon wedding reception and then go on to play for an evening reception. Only if the logistics work!

What are the forms of payment?

We ask for a deposit to secure the group for a booking. For the remaining amount, we prefer to receive payment by bank transfer in advance of the event.
