He didn’t show up. It was for the actual wedding ceremony, so that was supposed to set the mood for the entire evening. I wasn’t even informed. Unbelievable! Unprofessional! Heartbreaking... I will be seeking a refund!

Fernando played at our wedding - we have been very satisfied, it was truly special to us and our guests to have him play at our wedding. He was very professional and elegant in his appearance at the wedding. Fernando is super talented, it was a pleasure to watch him and his DJ perform on this special day. I would truly recommend Fernando and book him again if we'd need a sax player for whatever event we will plan in the future. We would not look for anybody else!

Fernando was helpful beyond measure! Not only was he an expectational musician, he also helped us find a wedding singer and cigar roller. He was able to flow with our vision and take it to an entirely new level. You will be ecstatic that you chose him for your special day.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!! He was our musician for our guests during the cocktail hour for our wedding. Although we only heard about a minute of his performance we received nothing but great feedback on how amazing he was. Nearly everyone loved his performance at our wedding and there were some who even asked where we found a musician of his talent to perform at our wedding. We definitely recommend Fernando to anyone and everyone. I plan to book him for an event in the near future but for a few more hours. You would be doing yourself an injustice to overlook Fernando Diez for any type of event you need a great and highly professional musician!!!!

Mr. Fernando Diez was an absolute true professional and performed to the highest level and degree as proclaimed in his introduction...we were very very proud to have at our wedding with the equal power of his background musically on the Sax/Flute. We honored him with his BIO which he was very modest and everyone simply loved him and his playing beautifully for the event!!!...He is truly a "Class Act"! Many Thanks and Very Kind Regards - Gair & Richard

Hi Linda, I noticed I received a 4.5 in the overall satisfaction. I would like to know of any comments/criticisms as that will help me improve my future performances. Ratings and comments are crucial for performers like me who self promote and rely heavily on past client reviews. Thanks. Fernando Diez
