We cannot thank you enough for playing during our wedding's reception. You guys were wonderful and exactly what we were looking for in a trio. We will certainly recommend the San Juanabees to any of our friends and family looking for a music option. You were definitely one of the highlights of our wedding as we received several compliments from family and friends. Thank you so much for helping make our wedding even more special.

Just a follow up about Gabo and the band (The San Juanabees),
They were terrific for our wedding reception and they added so many flavors to the party! They were very professional and they really made my night. Anyone else just wouldn't have worked. The weather was a little chilly and lighting was limited but they made the best of the situation and played on into the night. I would recommend them highly!
Dear Gabo and Bio Ritmo,
On behalf of the Richmond Symphony, it is my honor to thank you for your wonderful contribution to Tango & Temptation 2006. Your participation was a highlight! Our event would not have been as successful without your addition! Most Sincerely,
James Warren/Event Manager
