Wedding ReceptionReviewed on September 9, 2022From Moran, WY

Ricardo and his group were absolutely PERFECT in every way for our destination wedding!!! I couldn’t have asked for a better band. They performed acoustically on the terrace for cocktail hour, then on stage for the dinner and reception. From their list of over a thousand songs, we narrowed it down to just over one hundred. They seemed to learn and “read” our group, and picked the perfect music for every moment. Ricardo was so nice to work with and always available. Professional, friendly, EXTREMELY TALENTED, and easy going. They were BETTER than any band I’ve ever seen for a wedding, corporate event, or party, and I’ve seen a lot! We hope to see them again soon!!!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on July 25, 2022From Dillon, CO

The Ricardo Pena Band was amazing-I highly recommend them! We wanted something different than the typical wedding playlist. I requested Mariachi, Latin, Jazz, Country, Rock, Southern Rock and top 40 and we got it all! Perfectly performed. Every guest at our wedding was blown away by their talent, diversity, creativity and willingness to please. Several of our guests are very good musicians themselves and everyone commented that they loved the band! We asked for the world and they delivered and made all our dreams come true. It was truly magical.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on August 22, 2020From Colorado Springs, CO

The Ricardo Pena Band was nothing short of FANTASTIC. As this summer started I immediately went to book them AGAIN after their amazing job last year and wanted to leave a well-deserved 5-star review. They were amazing musicians, very flexible and accommodating (playing a range of genres - oldies to Salsas!) and took requests and favorites. I can't recommend them enough: if you are looking for a good summer band, they are awesome. You will probably have to book them soon: I wouldn't be surprised if they get booked up super fast.

The Ricardo Pena Band:

Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. This is extremely helpful for us and we really appreciate it! It was a great pleasure playing for you all! Ricardo Peña
