Andy Sheppard’s Saxophone Massive

Do you want to play alongside Andy Sheppard and huge numbers of other saxophonists on the opening night of the 2013 Bury Festival?

It doesn’t matter whether you are 7 or 77 or whether you have been playing for just a  few weeks or whether you are a seasoned professional, or whether you play soprano, alto, tenor or baritone… are all welcome.

If yes, then you will be part of Andy Sheppard’s Saxophone Massive of hopefully over 100 saxophonists all playing together on the opening night of the Festival (Thurs 16 May 2013).  If you are under 16 you will need to be accompanied by a parent or a responsible adult (preferably someone who will also be able to join in as a saxophonist).

Since its first outing in Bristol in 2006, the Saxophone Massive has now appeared at the London Jazz Festival as well as Norwich, Leeds, France, Norway and Switzerland.  A documentary was made by the Festival in Norwich which will give you more of an idea and you can watch it here:

If you think you might like to take part then please register your interest by emailing Michelle at with your name and email address and put Saxophone Massive in the subject field.  Alternatively, you can call her on 01284 758101.
