Daniel was awesome! He played for an evening reception at the Sacramento SPCA for our supporters. He arrived early, which was much appreciated, and engaged with all of our guests. His music was beautiful, and he was incredibly professional. We will definitely use him again!
"Daniel was great! We hired him to play our intimate wedding ceremony. He showed up right on time, fully ready to go and played beautiful music that set such a perfect ambiance. We are so happy that we hired Daniel! He added that special romantic element to the ceremony. Our contact beforehand was great, he helped me pick a few songs and was very responsive. He was also very affordable, especially for the level of talent he clearly has. I highly recommend hiring Daniel for any event!" —Kari D, South Lake Tahoe, Sept. 2017
"We booked Daniel to play our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Our venue was very small and intimate, and Daniel's playing fit the venue perfectly. Daniel met with us prior to gather all the details about both the ceremony and our requests. He was very helpful with song selection, and the impromptu selections he played during the cocktail hour were great. If you are looking for a solid classical guitar player for your event, Daniel is your guy" —Brennan Rector, Sacramento, CA May 2016
"Dear Daniel, Thank you so much for your performance at our wedding in Hakone Gardens. An entire crowd of professional musicians, and you wowed them all. The number of comments I received about your playing were too numerous to count, and they were all variations on a theme: 'Where did you find him? He's absolutely fantastic!' You were so professional and helpful and so easy to work with - not to mention patient... that I felt absolutely no stress about music after talking with you the first time. I'll happily recommend you whenever I can. Please accept the enclosed as an extra token of our appreciation. We're so grateful for your talents and professionalism. Thank to you, our wedding was a wonderful memory we'll treasure forever. Thank you again!" —Yuhri Hirata, Saratoga, CA
