Saxophonist Joe Wilson is a professional musician who provides solo performance, live DJ accompaniment, and band-leading services for weddings, special occasions, corporate functions, festivals, concerts, and events around greater New York City and the wider world.

An in-demand touring musician, session player, and freelancer in NYC's vibrant and diverse music scenes, Joe is experienced and comfortable performing in virtually all genres and situations, and familiar with repertoire from many genres, cultures, and traditions-- including hora music, tarantellas, salsa/boogaloo standards, reggae, African music; and the soul, rock, funk, jazz and swing classics from America's golden ages (the 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's, '80's, the 90's!) plus the latest radio hits in pop, hip hop, and R&B.

The range of services Joe typically provides Gigmasters clients include:

--Solo serenading (ideal for surprise marriage proposals, Valentine's Day and Birthday "gifts")
--Cocktail party Jazz, with band or accompanying backing tracks (ideal your cocktail hour, private parties / events)
--Live Jamming Sax on the dance floor w / DJ (ideal for Dance Party Wedding receptions, and large DJ party celebrations)
--Solo acoustic saxophone (ideal for wedding ceremonies, and funeral services)
--Organizing and Leading Bands of world-class New York musicians (potentially any size from duo to big band, and selected to specialize in the music for your event)
--Studio Session Work (sight-reading, soloing, writing, arranging, recruiting/leading horn sections and other session musicians, production)
--Ambient Sound Atmosphere Creation (ideal for "alternative" life events, art exhibitions, yoga / spiritual gatherings and classes, and theater/movie soundtracks).

As the reviews attest, Joe takes communication and preparation every bit as seriously as the performance itself. Whether it's going over your budget, itinerary times, song ideas and selection, technical spec's, dress code, or planning how to make a marriage proposal surprise work, Joe will respond quickly and fully to any questions, requests, concerns, or unusual circumstances that you may have. And, he makes sure that all necessary parties are happily on the same page about the logistics and budget of any event before confirming any booking. Joe is available by text, e-mail, video chat, or phone calls with his clients around the clock, before and after any event.

Joe is an absolute five star class act. I hired him to play the national anthem on the saxophone at my ceremonial event and other songs at the reception. He was so punctual, accommodating and professional. He even learned a new song he had never played before on short notice. Joe impressed the guests at my event and others became interested in hiring him for their events. I would definitely hire him again and recommend to my friends and family. I'm disappointed I'm not having another event soon to hire him again. Overall he is fantastic! You will not regret your decision, if you hire him.

Joe was amazing to work with. He worked on a great curated set list prior to the event and made sure it catered exactly to the vibe we were trying to create. He was flexible when we hit a couple of technology snags and was willing to go above and beyond to make our party special. He sounded great and was the perfect touch for our holiday party. I would hire him again, and I definitely recommend him!
