Performer, recording artist and jazz musician


Evan Carydakis is a saxophonist and recording artist with over 25 years experience. Complete and comfortable to stand-alone, or combined seamlessly with additional jazz musicians, Evan sets the right tone:

  • Elegant pre-dinner drinks and canapés,
  • Relaxing live music during dinners and cocktail receptions, or
  • A powerful after-dinner show that delegates simply cannot sit down to.

“Evan is a professional, a fine performer and a pleasure to deal with.” ALBERT VAN ZETTEN, MAYOR OF LAUNCESTON

“I am delighted to have Evan as a featured performer at Mona. His flexibility makes it possible to customize performances. His music adds elegance and style. Guests consistently complement the highly skilled musicianship. I have no hesitation in recommending him.”

Evan’s music will complement your event the way that you need it to…setting a mood, allowing people to talk effortlessly over drinks or dinner, and raising hairs and people off their seats at just the right moment.

Contact Evan Carydakis to set the perfect tone for your event.
