We thoroughly enjoyed Cristian's music at my mother's 80th birthday party. He played requests and even accompanied my mother when she sang an old-fashioned song from her youth in Puerto Rico. A number of people commented favorably on how much his talent added to the overall event. His fee was more conservative than that of other musicians I researched, too; all in all we were very pleased!

I cannot say enough good things about Cristian. We hired him to provide background music for a backyard party, and his repertoire of latin and jazz music was a huge hit! He and his colleague made a huge difference in creating a memorable event for our guests. Cristian was very professional, and his talent was noticed by everyone at our party. I would highly recommend him, and look forward to working with him again in the future.

Mr. Perez was a true professional. He responded promptly to questions and requests prior to the event. The evening of the event he came early to set up. He was fully prepared for the evening's performance and required no supervision during the evening. He is a talented and experienced performer and provided an evening of total enjoyment for the fundraiser. I would highly recommend him.
