About

The 8 Ball Saxophone Quartet consists of four graduates from the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign. We first started performing together as a saxophone quartet nearly 20 years ago, and we are still going strong today.

8 Ball is not just another wedding combo. What sets us apart is our unique ability to perform a wide variety of musical styles. Whether it's a gentle chorale by J.S. Bach, a swinging transcription of a big band chart by Duke Ellington, or a pop or rock tune by Paul McCartney or Billy Joel, 8 Ball can cover it all.

If you are in the Chicagoland area and are looking for live music for your wedding ceremony or reception, consider the 8 Ball Saxophone Quartet. Whether you require classical or chamber music, or a mixture of jazz & popular selections, the 8 Ball Saxophone Quartet will adapt a set list to meet your needs and satisfy your guests.

    We loved having the 8 Ball Saxophone Quartet play during the cocktail hour of our reception! Having these musicians was a unique touch and a classy alternative to a DJ. They were flexible and willing to play different types of music based on our preferences. As soon as we heard their demo, we knew they'd make a great addition to our wedding day!

    The 8 Ball Saxophone Quartet provided the perfect entertainment for my parents' anniversary party! They set the mood for an elegant evening with a great mix of numbers that appealed to everyone. What a special moment when they performed my parents' "song"... it was priceless! They were prompt, professional, nicely dressed. (We hired them for a fund raising dinner event as well.)

    My husband and I renewed our wedding vows. (40 years) The saxophone quartet was perfect for our reception afterwards. The 4 saxophones had a perfect blend. They played some of our favorites. It was a wonderful evening. I would hire them again in a minute.
