Rico was absolutely amazing. He was extremely professional and helpful. We communicated mostly via email due to my work schedule, but nothing was lost or missed. The day of my event he was early for set up per our site coordinator. The staff at our venue raved about how nice he was. Our guest raved about his playing during our ceremony and cocktail hour. He added an extra layer of style and class. He helped make our day more beautiful than we ever imagined. I would definitely hire him again and recommend him for other events.

Rico played at my outdoor ceremony and his music was beautiful! I did not provide Rico with any special song requests because when I listened to his music on his website, I knew I wouldn't have to instruct him. I felt so comfortable booking him, and sure enough on the big day, I didn't have to stress about him at all. He arrived early, dressed nicely, and was so accommodating. After the ceremony, he relocated to a different site and it was so nice to continue hearing him play during the cocktail hour. I wish I wasn't so busy and distracted to have been able to thank him personally once his time was up. Anyone would be lucky to have him play at their wedding!

Rico was absolutely amazing. He is an incredibly talented musician, playing beautiful renditions of latin and pop music, everything from Santana to Michael Jackson. He arrived early to the venue, all we had to do was point to where the ceremony and reception areas were, he did the rest. Before the ceremony, I totally forgot to cooordinate when Rico should start playing my precesional song to walk to. By the time I realized it was too late, he was already out playing for the guests. No problem, Rico just kept an eye out for me; when he spotted me, I gave him a thumbs up, he gave me a thumbs up back and we're good. The whole day it was that easy. Thanks Rico!
