Espinoza Music Professionals were exceptional!! Bar none. From start to finish, they were flawless. I hired them for my Mother's Retirement Party and I could not have been more pleased. They fit in - in style and tone. Everyone wanted to know where I found them. I had a good feeling about them from the very beginning and they did not disappoint. I can guarantee they'll book more gigs from this booking as several people expressed interested. I would definitely use them again and highly recommend them for your next event. This trio is definitely going places!

Josh Espinoza's Jazz Diplomats were amazing! Everyone loved them and I received many compliments about how utterly fantastic they were.

Josh exceeded our expectations at every level--what a pleasure! We enjoyed working with him because he was patient, polite, and professional in everything, from the initial conversation via email, during a pre-meeting and contract signing, to the actual day of the event. His music was superb and the Jazz Diplomats were a pleasure to have at the reception. They gave our event the atmosphere that we'd hoped for and made the evening really special. Thank you Josh! We could not recommend him and his band more highly. K&N

They were unbelievable! I was nervous to book the band for my reception, since I never heard them live. I received many compliments on how great they were through out the night. It was worth every penny. They were polite, timely, attentive, and I would recommend them in a heartbeat!

Josh and the Jazz Diplomats were the musicians for our wedding reception at the Hilton Netherland Plaza Hotel on October 24, 2015. Josh was responsive to our initial consultation; kind to deal with and above all, provided wonderful music for our guests. We received many compliments on the music at our reception. Josh was very mindful to keep music levels just right and the selections they chose were wonderful. I can't imagine having any other group and would definitely hire them again for a special occasion. Don't let this group get away if they're available! Dan Lakamp

We recently had the pleasure of booking Josh and the Diplomats for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, and I would highly recommend Josh and his band for any event. Josh is a fantastic piano player and band leader. He was flexible in building the song list for the ceremony itself, which helped create a personal experience that made the ceremony extra special. Then he and the band got the party started with some perfectly played bebop that was the ideal musical accompaniment to the cocktail party. You know they were good because all the musicians in attendance were watching the band. This wasn't background muzak-- these guys are seriously talented!

Joshua Espinoza was great to work with. His communication was punctual, accurate, and professional. I contacted him a few weeks before the event just to remind him, and he responded with all the details, which was very reassuring. He and his two partners arrived on time, were dressed elegantly in black tuxes, played exactly what I had asked them to at a volume that could be heard without overwhelming conversation. They were pleasant and professional in every way. Can't say enough good things about them! If I have opportunity to hire live music again, they will be first on my list!
