Hi, I’m the Entertainment Director of SSE, Ryan Youmans. We Are Central Texas’s Premier Boutique Agency for Classy Live Saxophonists

I’ve been playing music and performing for others my entire life. Through my experiences as a Street Performer, Army Bandsmen, Band Leader and Music Educator, I’ve realized something incredible about Music:

Playing music for others is a superpower.

Music is a Universal Language that all people naturally understand. Music is the language of emotion. Music is what binds us together. Music is powerful.

At Soulful Sax Entertainment, we absolutely understand and appreciate how important your special day is. My promise to you is to do everything in my power to elevate that experience and give you memories that will last a lifetime. We’re looking forward to Entertaining you and your Guests!



We cannot recommend Ryan enough! From the very first time we had him play at our restaurant, he was extremely professional, with excellent communication prior to our event date, plus setting up early, smart attire and stellar saxophone skills! Just fantastic! He played a wide variety and engaged the crowd, making new jazz fans in the process. You will not regret having him at any event!

Ryan is easy to talk to and easy to work with. It isn’t lost on him that the audience is part of the performance too. He acts with integrity, is a natural communicator, and is a musician of the people.

If you want a live musician for any part of your wedding, whether it be the ceremony or the cocktail hour, Ryan is the BEST. He played his saxophone for the cocktail hour at our wedding and brought just the vibe we were looking for while people were grabbing drinks and waiting to go inside the reception hall. He was super professional, brought his own setup, and had it ready to go before my ceremony even started. He was very communicative and worked super well with both myself and our wedding coordinator, to make sure he had everything he needed to play. He was also able to provide us with some of the songs he was going to play beforehand, just to “ok” the vibe he was going for; It was an immediate yes to his playlist and he even mentioned that we could give him requests if I had some.

Our guests really enjoyed the live aspect of his performance and were recording him and taking pictures the whole time. It just brought a more interactive aspect to our cocktail hour vs just having our DJ play some music from a speaker. We 100/10 recommend Ryan to anyone who wants a professional and talented musician for their next event!
