Mark Abdilla's music was absolutely beautiful! It gave the perfect ambiance to my wedding ceremony and dinner. I asked for classical, Spanish, and a little Irish and Mark played the most beautiful mix of acoustic guitar I could have dreamed of. Many of my guests came up to me and complimented my choice in music. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a light, joyous, beautiful and romantic sound. Samantha Kenwood, CA

Mark did a great job with very little information from us! He showed up on time, played beautifully, and managed to pick the perfect songs to play even though we didn't provide him with as much direction as we might have. I would absolutely recommend him for other weddings.

I am not alone in saying that Mark was wonderful. Every person in attendance at my wedding with whom I have spoken has relayed their enjoyment of his talent. He was so very helpful with picking the music for the ceremony and given free reign for the music through dinner he was flawless. I could not have wished for anything more. I would not hesitate to recommend Mark to anyone.

I had so many of our guests which numbered about 30 altogether, come up to me and remark on how much they enjoyed Mark's performance. We pretty much decided to leave the musical selections to Mark and he did a fabulous job. His performance of Celtic, Spanish guitar classics, and other beautiful compositions helped make our outdoor Wedding Celebration everything we wanted it to be!
