"Kevin McMahon's Swing Odyssey offers a fresh take on some venerable jazz standards.
The arrangements are crisp, intriguing and best of all, they swing! Highly recommended."
– Tom Macek – WRRG-FM, Chicago.
I am a saxophone player based in Surrey, providing an ecliptic mix of styles and genres to create a great musical atmosphere for your wedding, civil ceremony or private event.
As a professional, acclaimed saxophone player I pride myself on creating the perfect ambiance for your event. As you can see by watching some of my performances I have played in a variety of notable venues, alongside smaller more intimate gatherings.
My sound and individual style veers between mainstream and swing jazz, with a ballads and blues all essentially rendered towards my romantic and classic tastes. I have played alongside luminaries such as Louis Stewart, John Pearce, Dave Green, John Crithinson, Jim Mullen and many more.
Whatever your occasion I can tailor my style and song list to suit your gathering, with a variety of soulful swing, upbeat jazz, pop and modern lounge beats. Whether you would like to hire me as a soloist or as part of the popular band, Swing Odyssey, I would be delighted to provide a tailored solution to fit your budget and bespoke requirements.
Although I am based in Surrey, I am able to travel to your venue anywhere across the UK.
"McMahon is an attractive new voice on the Tenor Saxophone. He is accompanied here by some of Britain's Finest Musicians."
– Dave Gelly – The Observer.
"Swinging, warm-toned and melodic – that’s the kind of music that Kevin McMahon plays. It’s actually quite rare these days, which is strange, seeing how many people find it so appealing. The reason may be that this style of easy-going jazz isn’t anything like as easy as it sounds. It takes skill and judgement, and that that elusive thing called taste, and they’re always in short supply".
