Abi is based in Windsor, Berkshire mainly gigs in London, the surrounding Home Counties and internationally.
Abi plays both the Alto and Tenor Saxophone, to compliment different genres and timbres of music. She performs on the legendary Mark VI Selmer saxophone for a truly beautiful vintage sound. Can also cater for all different type of events /costumes / saxophone lights, and play as a self contained setup with equipment if required.
I began my career firstly in school and university big bands, before progressing to more intimate jazz ensembles and used this jazz syllabus to professionally freestyle in various nightclubs and private members clubs; including, to name a few - Annabels - Mayfair, Gigalum and McQueen, Shoreditch. I have had the opportunity to play in stunning venues including The RoundHouse Theatre, Cork Opera House, Udaipur City Palace and more intimate settings such as The Jazz Cafe, London alongside Heartbreakers punk artist Walter Lure and many London hotels for jazz repertoires including The Waldorf, Hilton and Emirates Stadium. I have played on recording sessions for original artists, sound clips and cover bands. I pride myself in high energy performances, adding a unique showmanship edge due to a decade of drama school training from early childhood. Other instruments I can double on, include flute/clarinet and piano.
International performance locations to name a few include, India, Monaco, Bahrain, Italy and France for events including The British Grand Prix, MPIM and The Monaco Yacht Show.
I can also be booked with DJ, Percussion or a Pianist, and available to play as guest musician with an existing band or DEP an existing band.
