Anniversary Party•Reviewed on June 20, 2020•From Romeoville, IL
Our experience was excellent, Carlos was professional and courteous to our COVID-19 request and with a perfect Representation of a Guitarist... our parents 50th anniversary was made a bit more special in having Carlos performance for parents due to the Covid-19 situation.. We highly recommend Carlos for all of your events..

We cannot say enough how wonderful Diego and Carlos were at our July 5th wedding! We had family in town from Spain for the celebration and they were so touched by the gesture, and more importantly thought their music was fantastic. Diego was incredibly professional, and accomodating, and together they truly made our wedding magical. I'm sure someone in our family will be hiring him soon for their next party!

Wedding Cocktail Hour•Reviewed on September 17, 2011•From Saint Charles, IL
We hired Carlo to play guitar solo during the cocktail hour and dinner portion of our wedding. He was absolutely perfect!! Very professional, yet relaxed. His music was lovely, and the feeling and scene he created for during our outdoor cocktail hour was phenomenal. The music he chose was so romantic and classy, and was especially nice to have while everyone was eating dinner. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to create a romantic feel at their wedding. Having a guitarist was also very unique as none of my friends had one at their weddings, so I feel it made our wedding that much more memorable. I am so so happy we booked him!

I found Carlo & Diego online through Gigmasters and from my first contact with Carlo, my experience was nothing short of great. I was throwing a party for my mother's birthday and expected about 40 guests. Carlo and Diego were not only utmost professionals beforehand in planning and organizing with me, but once there, they created an incredible atmosphere, playing an array of music to fit the mood and audience, from Spanish guitar to a flamenco version of Happy Birthday, and even tango for the tango crowd. The quality of the sound was also superb. I could not be happier with the experience of hiring Carlo and Diego and with their memorable contribution to the event.

The best decision I made in planning our event was hiring Carlo and David. Their talent, song selection, understanding of the audience, understanding of the venue, understanding of the event itself and what it called for, their ability to conform to the environment in which they played (which was a tropical jungle in Mexico with no electricity) all coupled with an amazing attitude and desire to give my guests the best performance possible made our wedding the most raved about event we or any of my guests have ever been to. We can not thank them enough!

We couldn´t have been more pleased with Carlo´s performance. He was professional and accommodating during every step of the booking process and most importantly he added the perfect musical backdrop for our event. We had my husband´s family and friends from Spain in town to help us celebrate and his music was highly regarded by all of them - a true testament to just how talented he is! We also gave a copy of his CD to each of our guests as a thank you gift, which they LOVED - I would definitely suggest this. Highly recommended and I would not hesitate to book Carlo or through Gig-masters again.

Las Guitarras/Spanish guitar duo made my wedding a really magical night. The sound was amazing! Vocals, guitars, cello and percussion all sounded great. I had quite a few musicians as guests who were blown away by the quality and talent. This band has such a wide range and pull off soft and calm as effortlessly as energetic and exciting! And of course when the percussionist added some flamenco dancing to the evening everyone was mesmerized and truly entertained. They were really so professional, so flexible and so so fun. I cannot say enough about how pleased we were with our choice! I would highly recommend this band for your next event!

Unfortunately, we were unable to have the duo due to financial constraints, but Carlo was great to work with and a pleasure to hear. I am glad he made the trek to Texas.

FIVE stars for all of the above. They were "early to arrive, set up and prepare"! Lovely music, lovely people wish they were in Newport Beach, CA for my son's wedding this September. Would hire them in a heart beat again.

I am a professional violinist (www.fifth-house.com) and think I am a decent music critic. These guys are great (I did not know them before)! My other professional colleagues thought they were awesome also. They had a great selection of music, all memorized! They had a great sound system and even let me borrow a mic for my best man's speech. These guys are for real, don't hesitate to book them.

Wedding Cocktail Hour•Reviewed on September 17, 2010•From Saint Charles, IL
Although we were only able to enjoy part of the cocktail hour to listen to them, we were blown away by how perfect it was. Tom and Stefano were great!! Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed their music and how unique it was to have them play. I would reccommend The spanish guitar duo for anyone who wants amazing, unique music at their event. Thanks guys for making our wedding more then we could have ever imagined!

Carlo and Diego were fantastic. Great sound, professional and provided one of the best "in home" sessions I've heard. They interacted with the party and made the entire celebration very special. I would whole heartedly recommend them for any event. Their sound is real and polished. Thanks guys!

Carlo and Diego played the ceremony and cocktail reception for my outdoor wedding, and we could not have been more thrilled. They are beyond talented. A few of our guests were asking how they can hear more, buy the CD etc.
Also, I originally started researching string quartets because that just seemed like the route people take for wedding music. I'm so glad we went with a Spanish guitar duo. It was different, fun, classic, and a real crowd pleaser. I strongly suggest that brides book them!
