He said: “We were joined by a live rhythm section of pro musicians especially for this performance, which included bass, drums, guitar, and even a sousaphone!

“We had a superb reaction from a large audience and the Metallica song in particular was really well received with people talking about it afterwards.

“This was a truly memorable performance for both the audience and the saxophonists who took part.

“We are always looking for new members to join our band, whether they are learners or returners.”
