About
Wedding ceremony and cocktail music is what I mostly do. If you're young and like the latest trends, you may like my version of "A Thousand Years" (check samples). For the traditional bride I always suggest Classical or ethnic (many Latin girls like "Besame Mucho" and Brazilian girls seem to go for "The Girl from Ipanema", while most Jewish brides like "Erev Shel Shoshanim" ) Check my samples. Also available: String Quartet, Harpist, Strolling Violins, etc. Providing entertainment for Miami, Broward & Palm Beach. Wedding musicians, Jazz bands, Top 40 bands, Classical ensembles, Salsa, Flamenco band, soloists. Music tailored to your taste and budget. No party is too small or too big. 7-piece bands, sextet, quintet, Quartet, trio, duo. Check my samples and videos.
Guitarrista/cantante, solo o con grupo, del tamano que su evento lo requiera. Todo estilo: Clásico, Flamenco, Salsa, Pop. Sencillamente el mejor. Satisfacción garantizada. Oiga algunas de mis grabaciones y videos en este sitio web.

As a corporate event planner, its refreshing to work with talent that gets the importance of adding flavor to the event. Carlos was early, had a great sound and really played amazing background music. I'd hire him again in a heartbeat. Simply amazing talent and fun to work with.

Al contactar a Carlos Abanto por email siempre contesto a todas mis preguntas inmediatamente y con detalle. También contesto mis llamadas telefónicas. Su presentación y presencia fueron excelente, llego 40 minutos antes de su actuación y empezó su repertorio en el tiempo acordado. El volumen de su presentación fue apropiado para la reunión. El feedback que tuvo de mis invitados fue muy positiva. Recomiendo altamente su contratación por el alto profesionalismo con el que trabaja. Gracias Carlos por hacer de mi cumpleaños una velada tan especial.

Carlos Abanto was AMAZING and perfect for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour for our wedding. Our guests kept asking where we found such an amazing talent who was playing perfectly at every queue and made the ambiance of our event delightfully memorable. He's kind, professional, and I would absolutely recommend him for any event where you want to add some sophistication and warmth. He recommended Luis Bode for our DJ at the reception, and they worked together to make the transition absolutely seamless--musically divine in every way. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Even my in laws were impressed! :)

His quick, intelligent grasp of our event and his subsequent musical choices and talented musicianship gave us our best farm dinner atmosphere yet. Can hardly wait to use him again. A very dear man and so accomodating.
