Thanks for your performance and range of music. The band looked good on stage and you proved very reliable. We were pleased with your performance, your outfits and repertoire.

"Nice decent chap, played well & listened to my requests."
Claire, London, March, 2022
"Thanks to you and the band for all of your amazing performances over the event run. You guys were a pleasure to work with, and we were extremely happy with how everything went – lots of lovely feedback from visitors too!
Diáspora have been wonderful to work with – a highly professional, talented and engaging group of musicians. The communication and organisation in the lead up to the event was exemplary, and they adapted extremely well to the challenges of an unusual venue. The performances the band gave were high energy and super fun, and had many of our visitors dancing along with them. We received lots of wonderful feedback from our guests on how much they enjoyed it – it was definitely the highlight of our Orchids After Hours programme. All in all, I cannot recommend the band enough for any future clients.
It’s been an absolute pleasure, and I hope we may have the opportunity to work together again in the future!"
Holly Elson, Kew Gardens, Richmond, February 2022
"Thanks so much for playing at our wedding. You were excellent and we really appreciated that you got set up and started without us needing to worry on the day. We really felt you read the room throughout and the music flowed. We had lovely feedback from our guests and you were one of the highlights from our day!"
Esther, Yateley, Hampshire, October, 2021
"Hey Rory. Hope you're doing well mate... Just wanted to give you a quick message just to say thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, so much, for yesterday... The performance you gave at our wedding ceremony was just absolutely amazing. The amount of people who came up to me and said "your saxophonist was just out of this world". Honestly, it was amazing. And we're so grateful that you did such a wonderful job... The fact that you could go on for so long / as long as you did... This is going to sound a bit weird but you have some amazing lungs. So, just wanted to give you a quick note here. I saw an email from you. I will definitely write a review as well. But I just wanted to leave you this quick note to say thank you so much for your performance and you were just absolutely terrific. Well done again. You really made our day. So happy I hired you. I really am. And, who knows? If we ever do another ceremony in the future... I know one of my friends is interested in contacting you, that's for sure. But if I ever do anything and I need a saxophonist, you're right at the top of my list, for sure."
"Thanks again for your great performance on Saturday as well as your wonderful comments on our wedding too 😊.
We are more than happy to leave a review for you especially after the joy you brought us and our guests on mine and Rachel’s special day:
What can we say about Rory, the music he provided throughout our wedding meal was quite simply outstanding! The ability he has not only with a saxophone but with a flute is amazing, he is supremely talented with these instruments and had our guests thoroughly entertained with his seamless performance. For over 2 hours he treated us all to a wonderful playlist of songs, we even joked that he must have the most incredible lungs to be able to go on for such a long time!
We also have to thank Rory for the patience he had in fulfilling our request to perform at our wedding, due to Covid we had to reschedule our wedding 2 times over the course of nearly 2 years since we first booked him so we’re so thankful that he never let us down.
We would highly recommend Rory to anyone looking for someone to provide a musical performance at any event, from our experience he’ll provide you with a truly memorable experience that people will always talk about!
Again we can’t thank you enough for helping to make our day everything we dreamed of, as we said any other event we do where we need music then we’ll be sure to contact you 😎!
All the best,
Kel & Rachel

"We can only thank you because it was a big part of the wedding, and it was just beautiful how good you were in regards to the saxophone. We are so very, very happy. Hope you are happy, too. We will definitely keep you in mind if we do any other big event, for sure. You will be one of the first names we remember. That's for sure. Hopefully, our paths will cross again soon. Just want to wish you the greatest of luck in all your future endeavours."

"Music was great."
Raajhu, September, 2021
"In February 2020, our guests were treated to the smooth sounds of top-rated UK saxophonist Rory Duffy. A perfectly executed combination of contemporary Jazz, alongside well-loved modern classics, from Miles Davies and Nina Simone to Amy Winehouse and Gnarls Barley. A heady mix of live music and well-loved classics!"
The Oxford Blue, Old Windsor, Berkshire, February, 2020
"Rory performed an Ibiza-themed sax/DJ set for our rave-themed company's 5th birthday party in central London. Rory provided an idyllic soundtrack for the evening, and our guests were delighted with the smooth, soulful and classy sounds of the saxophone."
Making Moves, March, 2020
"Thanks for your performance on Sunday. The feedback from my friends especially the ones in Paris and New York including myself is that you were a fluent saxophonist and performer. You maintained professionalism, joined as scheduled and added to the birthday ambience and energy. We look forward to future bookings."
Mo Queen, July, 2020
"Rory opened our wedding party in London with his incredible saxophone skills, giving a skilful and energetic performance to start the night with style. His jazzy tones playing over a mix of modern day classics from Smooth Operator to Despacito put smiles on the faces of every guest. Rory played a solo set for an hour and a half but also jumped on his feet and grabbed his sax to play along to some of the DJ's set throughout the night giving the crowd of dancers a musical treat every time he did. Many guests commented on how friendly and talented he was and I would highly recommend him for anyone considering Rory for their future celebrations."
Sophie Reeve Designs, March, 2020
"Thank you for Saturday night! I felt that the guests were really engaged with you and I think it added the cherry on the cake to the event."

"I booked Fiesta Latina for our annual company summer party, seeing as it was a Latin-themed party the band were a perfect fit.
The booking process with easy and Rory was efficient getting over all the information I needed.
We split the performances into two, which got more up-tempo as the evening went on.
The vocals and quality of the musicians were outstanding and the band blended in well with our guests.
The live performance definitely made the party all that more memorable, I certainly recommend booking the band for your next party!"
Angela, Wrexham, Wales, September, 2019
Amazing afternoon thank you so much
The performance was just how we envisaged it loads of energy interaction with my friends and a top playlist everything we wanted and more
You made our party
Will definitely look to book you again and you’ve given me an idea for next years theme so we could see you again at out Latino Party

Thank you so much for coming to play at our wedding. It was the perfect accent to our cake eating and dancing to round off a fantastic day. Hannah's parents particularly enjoyed it, spending quite a bit of time on the dance floor! The band played with great enthusiasm, and the arrangements for the day could not have gone more smoothly.
With our thanks again,
