We had John play the saxophone at the Ronald McDonald House Jingle Bell Ball last Saturday. He played background music as our guests entered the banqueting hall. John was fantastic and even joined in with the Dublin Ukulele Collective when they played for our guests.

Joe Kenny - Ronald Mc Donald Charity Function

John played saxophone at our wedding. John was very easy to work with and was always available to answer any queries we had or needed any advice. He listened to what we wanted for our special day and helped us include the music we liked and was special to us. John is very approachable and personable. We were fortunate to have him play beautiful music on our wedding day. John’s playing will enhance any occasion. We would highly recommend John.

We had our “Annual Ladies Lunch” for our secondary school. At the entrance to the golf club we had the talented John Murphy coax our ladies into the lunch with his tailored tunes to suit our event! John then entertained our Ladies on the balcony and set the tone for the afternoon! Can’t thank you enough John for your engagement with our audience and for making our lunch so special! Already booked for next years lunch! Highly recommended!
