"From a satisfied customer:
During the summer of 2013, we secured Joey Rincon's services for a large family dinner celebration held in Charlotte. We discussed the type of atmosphere and music we desired, and Joey accommodated our needs beautifully. He was very accessible, prompt in responding to phone calls and emails, and was punctual and courteous on the day of the event. He is an accomplished guitarist, polite, and personable. We found his fees for service to be quite reasonable. Without hesitation, we give Joey our wholehearted endorsement for his work as a professional musician, and wish him much success in the years to come.
