Sax Bandits are an all-saxophone band for all ages and abilities – even beginners. We meet once a month, playing arrangements of your favourite rock and pop songs; from Madness to Ariana Grande to Earth Wind & Fire.
The difficulty of the music differs between parts to cater for both rookies and the more advanced wizards. Many of our members had never played music with other people before joining the band, so don’t be shy! Learn to play songs together in a relaxed and supportive environment. You can expect to see an assorted collection of saxophones, people, cakes and wrong notes!
So if you know how to play the saxophone, don’t exile yourself to your bedroom. Jump on the band wagon, make some noise alongside your fellow saxophonists, and become a more confident player!
I recently worked with Rob from Sax Bandits to create a private subscription based membership community to compliment the offline side of the business, where members of Sax Bandits meet once or more times a month to jam with other sax players.
The front end of his website and blog is Wordpress, we built out the community and back end using XenForo and use XenForo to manage all permission based access to content and membership subscription payments through Stripe.
Members pay for 6 or 12 months of access, and this gives members access to an online community, learning materials, sheet music, tutorial videos and the ability to attend one jam session per month in their local area (or as many per month as you like in all areas on the top membership tier).

Join Sax Bandits
We're starting to open up again here in the UK and live Sax Bandits sessions have now resumed! So if you're based in the London/Midlands/Oxford area, be sure to check and see if there are any locations near you. If there is, message Rob to arrange a free session. And if there isn't, message him anyway and tell him where your based for when they expand so they come to your area!
Rob is also experimenting with the idea of virtual memberships, which give you access to the online learning materials, video and community, so if you're interested in that, send him a message to register your interest.
They also do projects with sax players and musicians from around the globe for their lockdown videos. So if you're interested in being in the next one be sure to follow their YouTube and other socials. Here are the 3 previous lockdown videos. They're a lot of fun and really creative, so worth checking out!
