Wedding CeremonyReviewed on July 2, 2016From Napa, CA

Anna Maria is much more than 5 stars can measure...a true professional and incredibly talented...to say that her music complements an event is not accurate because she makes the event!...Anna Maria is beyond compare and truly made my daughter's wedding ceremony perfect...everyone was awestruck and is still talking about her...in fact the people at Mont La Salle in Napa will be recommending her to future couples for their wedding...really could never thank her enough...highly recommend her to anyone looking for an astounding musician...and she is an absolute must for the perfect wedding!

FuneralReviewed on January 7, 2017From El Centro, CA

I cannot recommend Anna Maria more highly. She and her sister transformed a very sorrowful funeral into a beautiful celebration of life. I was so amazed by her professionalism and performance that I hired her again four months later. A wonderful musician with a beautiful soul.

Corporate FunctionReviewed on April 10, 2015From San Jose, CA

Performers arrived on time, and were very accommodating to last minute shuffling of venue. Performance started/ended right on schedule, allowed for a smooth transition to the next event. Musicians and dancers were extremely talented and engaged the audience fully. Asking the audience to dance Tango and teaching a mini-lesson during the performance, made for a very intimate moment that drew in everyone. We enjoyed it immensely - it was an exquisite high-class performance. Definitely, Tango del Cielo is Broadway quality throughout. Got lots of accolades and great comments from attendees. Highly recommended show.
