With two Grammy nominations for his work as a guitar soloist and composer, Jose is a highly sought-after solo artist and collaborative musician with concerts across the US, including Carnegie Recital, New York City's North-South Series, Baltimore, Houston, Miami, Charleston, and other cities; international concerts in Cuba, Spain, China, Germany, Czech Republic, Greece, and in four South American nations. He also has performed hundreds of weddings over 25 years in New England for many satisfied clients, as well as corporate events, art gallery openings, birthdays, private parties, and private concerts. He can play traditional wedding standards, classical, light jazz, Brazilian, Spanish, and South American guitar pieces. Jose will talk with you about your needs and create elegant solo guitar arrangements of your favorite wedding song requests. He also plays a wide repertoire for classical concerts from Renaissance to Contemporary, including his own critically acclaimed original Latin-flavored solos. Jose has four critically acclaimed CDs to his credit and can collaborate with violin, flute, classically trained soprano, and tango singer, depending on your needs and budget. Clients have also hired Jose's three-piece Latin Band, Trio Carioca, to play Cuban and Brazilian standards at receptions. Jose promptly returns phone calls and offers a professional experience of over 25 years playing private events in New England and Florida.

--Lucile Bruce, Coordinator, Fundraiser / Concert, IRIS-Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services.

"Your performance at the Hingham Library was superb and greatly appreciated by the 102 attendees shoe-horned into the meeting room … the highlight of this season's collaboration with the Boston Classical Guitar Society." --Dennis Corcoran, Hingham Library Director.

Jose and Virginia were excellent! They played for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Jose was very easy to communicate with, very professional, and very accommodating with last minute changes to our event. Their musicianship was excellent and their arrangements of our special-request songs were spot-on. Highly recommended!

Jose performed for our June 20th, 2015 wedding ceremony. He was easy to communicate with, arrived / set-up at our venue without a hitch, and is a skilled musician who understands weddings. He also has good suggestions and an interesting repertoire for those wanting to avoid the Pachabel Canon route. He even learned a song for us - Suzanne by Leonard Cohen - that we had him play as we walked down the isle. It helped make the ceremony memorable. Thanks, Jose!

Jose is an excellent guitarist and I was very happy to have him play at my event. I appreciated him working with me on my budget and being able to not only play in the morning for us but also at lunch so everyone got a chance to wake up to his great music as well as have a relaxing lunch break with him playing in the background.

Jose Lezcano is an extremely talented Spanish Classical Guitarist, and his performance at my daughter's wedding cocktail hour was nothing short of magical! His superlative playing filled the beautiful outdoor setting and helped wedding guests almost forget how cold it was. He played many specially requested songs and had a very professional presence at the event. I only wish that we could have listened to him longer. Thank you, Mr. Lezcano, for sharing your talent with us! Cynthia S.

Jose is a fantastic performer and I would hire him again in an instant. He performed at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, in Arlington, VT. Jose promptly returned every email and phone call. He worked with us on song selections. He showed up on time. He was polite and professional. He is an amazing guitarist. Our guests were very impressed and he helped make our wedding the perfect day. I'd recommend Jose to anyone looking for a classical guitarist.
