Welcome

Welcome to the website of the premier saxophone quartet of East Yorkshire. "Sax It Up" was formed in 2015 and plays a variety of music from jazz through to classical to contemporary arrangements. We have also been known to marsquerade from time to time at some gigs as a clarinet quartet. Please contact us for further information, availability and fees.

Noel Weston

Noel started playing the alto sax at age 9 in a junior school concert band, and took up the clarinet a few years later to double in swing and big bands. While studying at York University, Noel was offered a position in a working big band - provided he took up the baritone sax in a week! He has played in all sorts of ensembles and settings - big bands, swing bands, concert bands, soul bands, function bands, trad bands, orchestras, sax quartets and ensembles.

Noel currently plays with Saxitup, The Mike Brown Band, Hep to the Jive, Culture:Music and the Hull Big Band regularly, and plays with other groups from time to time, on all 4 saxes, clarinet and bass clarinet.

He secretly wants to add sopranino and bass saxes to the lineup as well...
