WeddingReviewed on December 29, 2019From Calabasas, CA

David played at our wedding in Calabasas over the weekend and his performance was amazing! If we could give him 10 stars we would. We highly recommend him and will definitely use him in the future for our parties. Our guests loved him!!

CelebrationReviewed on June 13, 2019From Stanton, CA

David played in a celebration of life for my father-in-law who passed away a few weeks ago. His selection of classical Spanish guitar and Bach pieces was perfect for the occasion and played with first-class musicianship and skill. David was able to find a specific favourite song of my father-in-law, learn it and played it so beautifully. So many of the service attendees remarked on how well David played, with some going up to David the end of the service to express their appreciation. For anyone looking for superb classical guitar playing and truly remarkable musicianship then David Adele is clearly the one to choose. He's simply brilliant.

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

Roger, Thank you so much for your very kind review! It was a true honor to hear about the amazing man your father in-law was and to be a part of you very special day. Everyone was extremely kind and warm towards me about my music and that really meant a lot to me. I wish you and your family all the best. -David Adele

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on February 25, 2018From Cathedral City, CA

A true class act. Our ceremony was made that more special with the beautiful music David played. Everyone and I mean everyone at the ceremony had something wonderful to say about both David as a person as well as a musician. Again, music was loved by everyone. Thank you again David about making our day so very special!!

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

Rhonnie, Thank you so much for this great review!! I had a wonderful time at your wedding ceremony and reception. I wish you and James all the best! Please keep me in mind if you ever need music again. -David Adele

WeddingReviewed on August 8, 2015From Laguna Beach, CA

We had a terrific experience working with David Adele prior to our wedding and his performance the day of was even greater. He is a true artist and his music added a magical feel to our wedding. Multiple guests attest to how his music moved them through the event. Prior to the wedding he accommodated changes, his response was immediate, and he arranged 2 songs for us, one of them being our first dance which he played for us on the dance floor as we danced, a truly magical experience. I would highly recommend David Adele and I plan on using him again in the future as it was an honor working with him. I'd give him 10 stars if I could.

WeddingReviewed on September 15, 2013From Pacific Palisades, CA

We had David create three custom arrangements for our ceremony, which were beautiful beyond our dreams. The first time I heard one of them, my fiance (now husband) found me in the living room sitting my computer sobbing because the song was so beautiful. I ended up walking down the aisle to that one. Our reception didn't have dancing (venue restriction). So, the entertainment was heavily dependent on David and he was AMAZING. The classical and Spanish pieces "wowed" people without overwhelming or pulling focus from it being our day. People also got a kick out of hearing Stairway to Heaven on a classical guitar. David is the best by far!

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

To Jenny and Jason, Thank you for your very kind review. It was my honor to play for you on your beautiful day. I loved that little chapel and the surrounding grounds. It was a truly special day that I won't forget. I wish the absolute best that life has to offer for both of you. Cheers! - David Adele

WeddingReviewed on November 12, 2013From Laguna Beach, CA

Wow! We are so happy we chose David to perform at our wedding! He is a true professional from first contact to the big day and even followed-up with pictures the day after. Our guests absolutely raved about how talented he is and how his music helped create an amazing ambiance. David took the time to learn and new song for my bride to walk down the isle and it was executed perfectly. I would highly recommend using David's services to enhance any event you have no matter what size. Mahalo Nui Loa (Thank you very much) David!

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

Dustin and Julie, Thank you both very much for letting me provide your music on your very special day. I thought the idea of using an arrangement of "White Sandy Beach" was a absolutely beautiful choice for the setting and mood of the bridal walk. I definitely will not forget how gorgeous that sunset was during the ceremony any time soon. I wish you both a lifetime of love, laughter, happiness and adventure. Mahalo -David Adele

Private PartyReviewed on May 17, 2014From San Diego, CA

I am a wedding an event planner in San Diego and David played at my husbands Law School graduation party. He was always very prompt to respond to emails and calls during planning to make sure everything was going to run smoothly. Despite driving from Orange County and dealing with the San Diego fires that were making travel difficult he still showed up on time and was ready to go. The music was AWESOME and a cool mix of all of our favorite songs and genres. I will be referring him in the future to my clients. On top of everything he is just a really nice guy! Thank you David! Everyone loved you and our guests were blown away by your talent!

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

Ashley, Thank you for the very kind review. I had a really great time at your party. Despite a flat tire and San Diego being on fire, everything worked out as it should have. Your friends and family were really great to me, as were you and Derek. I hope that we can work together again in the future! Best wishes to you and Derek. -David Adele

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on July 12, 2014From Temecula, CA

David was amazing to work with! He had music samples readily available... however, I must say that his music was even better LIVE than on his demos! He is extremely personable and always got back to me very promptly. He provided classical guitar music for my daughter's wedding ceremony as well as pre-wedding and cocktail hour. Many of our guests shared with me how much they enjoyed his music. He was very professional and I would recommend him HIGHLY!!! If you are looking for a guitarist for an event, David Adele is your man!

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

Dear Suzy (and Sam and Jessica), I loved being a part of your special day. The venue was perfect and it could not have been a more beautiful day. Your guests were very warm and complimentary towards me and I had a really great time. Suzy, thank you for the very nice review. Congratulations and please give me a call when your sons decide to take the plunge! -David Adele

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on August 24, 2013From San Diego, CA

David Adele drove to San Diego to play for my daughters wedding. He was awesome. He composed a version of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" at the bride and grooms request. It was beautiful. All of the guests commented on how talented David was. I would highly recommend David to play at any event. Thank you David for making the wedding magical.

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

Thank you for hiring me Patricia, and for the very kind review. Paradise Point is a truly stunning venue for a wedding ceremony. I won't forget it. And please give my congratulations again to Dustin and Ashley! - David Adele

Review by Alex K.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on June 27, 2015From Temecula, CA

Long before we got engaged, my now-wife had a special song in mind for when she walked down the aisle (the Theme from Jurassic Park - a beautiful piece of music and one that has special meaning for us). We hoped to have it performed live by a guitarist. David was delighted for the challenge and when I presented him with the sheet music, he was happy to learn it. He even made a recording of himself playing it so we could hear how it would sound. His communication was excellent from start to finish. On the day of the event, he performed beautifully. He's a true professional and artist, as well as a kind, generous guy.

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

To Alex and Kristin, It was my absolute pleasure to play for you both on your most special day. Your venue was perfect and your beautiful vows that you wrote to each other was even more perfect. I wish you both the happiest lifetime together surrounded by great friends and family. (However, I think you already have all of that!) All my best, David Adele.

Review by Katelyn A.

WeddingReviewed on June 14, 2014From Irvine, CA

David was absolutely amazing! He played the guitar during my ceremony and it was so beautiful. He even played during our cocktail hour since he noticed the DJ hadn't started playing yet, even though we didn't even pay him to do that!! He really went above and beyond, even sending me pictures of the ceremony. I definitely recommend him! I also want to add that I found him online and paid him online. I had never even met him until the day of the ceremony but he is very trustworthy and professional. He is also very quick with communication. Thanks, David!

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

Katelyn, Thank you so much for hiring me and for the very kind review. As I mentioned to you, I loved playing for your ceremony. Being set at Strawberry Farms Golf Course, it combined my two greatest loves....guitar and golf! I did not have a problem at all playing while the DJ was setting up, I would have continued on playing the entire cocktail hour if necessary. I was having a really great time. I wish you and Jeffrey the very best life has to offer and I hope someday I can play again for you! - David Adele

Review by Jessie H.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on February 15, 2015From Laguna Beach, CA

David played at my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour 4 months ago and was absolutely incredible. He was professional and prompt right from the beginning. Fast responses, and he did an amazing job customizing our ceremony song for us. All of our guests told us how beautiful the music was, and David even sent us pictures he had captured of the wedding ceremony before/after. My two regrets was that I didn't get to shake his hand and thank him in person at the wedding, and that I reviewed him so late! If I can sum him up in a few words it would be talented, professional, kind, and respectful. I would highly recommend David Adele for any event. Thank you David!

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

Jessie, Thank you so much for the great review. Your wedding was beautiful at the Sand And Surf Hotel. Weddings are always a bit hectic, and unfortunately, yours is not the first time I've played a wedding and did not meet the bride or groom. It was my pleasure playing for you and I hope our paths cross again someday! All my best, David Adele.

WeddingReviewed on July 20, 2013From Simi Valley, CA

David was Awesome! he was professional and did exactly what i was wanting, even on short notice. His music was calming and just what i wanted the mood to be. I liked how he stayed and watched our wedding after he was done playing. That was very cool. I recommend David very highly.Thank you David so much for helping our wedding be a beautiful experience. Love And blessings to you Mark and Jinell Garcia

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

To Mark and Jinell, It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of your very important day. Thank you so much for including me, and all of my best wishes for you two in your new life together! - David Adele

WeddingReviewed on October 12, 2014From Palm Springs, CA

Book David Adele today! Here's why: listening to his song selection "What a Wonderful World" blew us away! Beautiful ... But we needed him to travel to Palm Springs and take "our" song, "At Last" Etta James version and create a classic guitar version for our Groom's walk down the aisle. Not only did he happily do all that but he came early, played in the heat and provided the music to transform our special event into something really special for us and our guests. Many raves from our guests. So David, Jim & I would like to thank you for helping create the ultimate, intimate garden Ceremony & Cocktail Hour at the Parker Palm Springs! Life long good memories! At last!

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

Dear David and Jim, Thank you both for your kindness and positive words. I really loved playing your wedding for many reasons, but the most important of which is that you both deserve the life you wish to have. I was honored to be a part of it and please call me to play for the many future anniversary celebrations! -David Adele

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on June 8, 2013From Fullerton, CA

I one word, Dave is Terrific!!! He arrived on time, played the music we requested as well as many other classical and contemporary pieces. Dave has a wonderful personality, unobtrusive, just very pleasing to have as part of our wedding celebration. He is a wonderful talent and a great compliment to any special event.

Review by Tim M.

WeddingReviewed on January 4, 2014From Rancho Palos Verdes, CA

David was a pleasure to deal with. He was extremely accommodating and was able to play everything we wanted and more. He played through our wedding ceremony and reception without any problem and all of our guests were very impressed with his level of talent. I would highly recommend David to anyone looking for a classical guitarist. David is as professional as they come, on time if not early, highly skilled, and very friendly. Thanks again David! You helped make our wedding very special.

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

Tim and Erin, Thank you so much for the very kind review. Your wedding was an absolute pleasure to be a apart of. Your wedding coordinator was so helpful and really kept me informed every step of the way. I thought the sound engineer Robbie did an outstanding job. It was nice to hear my guitar fill the entire church with sound. And also, your guests were so gracious to me and gave me so many compliments throughout the entire event. It is wonderful to play for so many appreciative people. I left one of my CDs with Erin's Mom for you, I hope your received it.....I wish you and Erin a lifetime of joy and happiness, laughter and adventure, music and successes. -Davi

Engagement PartyReviewed on April 7, 2013From Los Angeles, CA

We were so fortunate to find David for my engagement party! He arrived wearing a suit, set up his equipment, and began playing right on time. He provides everything you need (including a sound system) for a very professional performance in any setting. Although we had initially hired David for only 2 hours, he was willing to stay an additional 2 hours, just because we wanted him to do so! David's talent was the talk of the night (all the guests loved him!), and he's a really nice guy as well. He has a fantastic repertoire of songs to choose from, so you can enjoy an array of music, including many difficult tunes that only a pro could perform! Thank you, David!

Review by Robin B.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on September 20, 2013From La Jolla, CA

Hiring David to play the classical guitar for my wedding ceremony was a no brainer after listening to his song samples. I had initially wanted a regular acoustic guitar with a beachy vibe, but I knew I needed to class it up since this was my wedding after all. David's music was beautiful and elegant without sounding stuffy and it was EXACTLY what I wanted. He was very easy to work with and arrived early. One of my guests who is a musician was very impressed when he saw that it was David playing live and not the DJ. I just wish my husband hadn't insisted on having the DJ play through cocktail hour because I would've loved to have heard more of David playing!

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

Thank you, Robin, for the very kind review. I was thinking the same thing after the ceremony was over. I would have loved to play the cocktail hour as well. It was such a charming venue for a ceremony and it was so peaceful in that courtyard. Regardless, I had a great time providing the ceremony music, and I was able to sneak in Free Bird to the pre-ceremony music as well! I wish you and Dennis the best life has to offer and a forever of happiness!! -David Adele

Review by Melissa S.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on June 21, 2014From Lake Forest, CA

We've had the pleasure of communicating frequently with David throughout our wedding planning process, as well as meeting and listening to David perform at one of his solo events prior to our wedding. David is a very talented musician and his music made our ceremony a much more elegant occasion. He gracefully steered me away from my request to play acoustically, and as it turns out, with the outdoor background noise, his advice and judgment was spot-on. After the ceremony, David was kind to e-mail photos from our event, which gave us a different perspective of the day's events. Thanks, David!

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

Dear Melissa, Thank you very much for hiring me and for the very kind review. I thought the Heritage Historical park was such a quaint and charming place for a wedding ceremony. Had I to do it all over again, instead of the small battery powered amp that I did bring, I would have brought my full PA system. Apparently, that is what the minister did and he did not purchase a $1,000,000 insurance policy or even know about it! As I figured, nobody would have said a thing and overall the sound would have been exactly as it should have been. But it was a perfect day, the ceremony went great, and you and Gary looked really happy. Congratulations again! - David Adele

Anniversary PartyReviewed on July 13, 2013From Upland, CA

We and out guests thoroughly enjoyed the musical selections offered by David. We had told him our musical preferences before, and he put together a brilliant "montage" of all the various music we like. He was accommodating, skillful, professional in presentation and demeanor, and very sociable. Also timely and unobtrusive in his breakdown and departure. We will definitely use him again! Al & Barbara Shane

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

Dear Barbara and Al, Thank you so much for including me in your party. I have never been to or even heard of a 70th wedding anniversary. It was an absolute honor to provide the music for your amazing tribute to two very special people. I will not forget it! Thank you again, David Adele

FundraiserReviewed on July 18, 2015From Riverside, CA

A charming individual with a great talent. Although our event was cancelled, David was so easy to work with and we will definitely keep him in mind for future events.

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

Dear Robin, I am truly humbled by your kindness to write a great review for me when I never had a chance to play for you. I hope in the future that changes and I can provide a great ambiance for your next event. I am sincerely grateful for your kind words. All my best, David Adele.

Review by Archibaldo S.

Private PartyReviewed on July 5, 2015From Whittier, CA

David is an amazing guitarist. His excellent performance at our brunch helped set an upbeat atmosphere and made our gathering more enjoyable. I recommend him highly.

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

Archibaldo, Thank you so much for hiring me and the great review. I had a really nice time at your Holiday lunch get together. You have a beautiful home and it was a perfect day for the event! Please keep me in mind in the future if you ever need live music again. Best wishes, David Adele

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on June 21, 2015From Dana Point, CA

We recently hired David to play background music for our wedding reception. He was punctual and set up quickly, and his equipment was appropriate for the venue. David's playing was excellent; his classical/Spanish pieces were beautiful, as were his interpretations of more modern/popular pieces. Most guests specifically told us how much they enjoyed his playing throughout the night. There's not much else to be said that hasn't been mentioned in other reviews - I would thoroughly recommend David for anyone seeking a guitar soloist.

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

Tonya and Alex, Congratulations to the two of you. It was my pleasure to provide the music for your wedding reception. I loved all of the creative ways that you kept the guests involved and participating in the night. I think everyone knew you both a little better afterwards and I certainly was impressed enough to take a few notes to help out others that may be searching for good wedding reception game ideas. Thank you again and please keep me in mind in the future if you ever need music again. My very best wishes, David Adele.

Review by Rayne S.

Anniversary PartyReviewed on June 6, 2015From Rancho Palos Verdes, CA

David is the most talented Classical Guitarist I have had the pleasure to meet. His unassuming presence along with his variety of music makes him a perfect fit for any occasion. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

Rayne, thank you for your very kind words. I had a fantastic time playing at the Terranea Resort and your friends and family were so supportive and appreciative of my music. I wish you and Pam another 50 years! Cheers, David Adele

Review by Jennifer J.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on May 2, 2015From Los Angeles, CA

David was such a joy to work with. I requested a few songs that were not part of his list, and he was able to not only learn them in the short time he had before the wedding, but his renditions were better than the originals! Both my fiancé and I teared up listening to them. He's obviously a very talented musician and very easy to work with. We had many complements from our guests about his playing as well. Thank you David for making our day even more special!

David Adele - Classical Guitarist:

To Jen and Tom, Thank you for the very kind review. It was my absolute pleasure to be a part of your once in a lifetime day. Your home was the ideal setting, the night was spectacular, and your happiness was beaming and infectious to all who were present. All my best, David Adele.
