The jazz\latin quartet with Raquel played at my wedding reception and they were amazing! When I first was thinking about hiring them, I checked out their website at raq.com, and listened to the videos. They were very good. But when they started playing live at the reception, I was blown away. Those videos did not do them justice. The energy that they bring to the performance can not be shown in those videos. My wedding reception was a blast, and everyone who was there continues to tell me so. But it was Raquel and her quartet that made so great. I would hire the again in an instant! And I would VERY HIGHLY recommend hiring them over anyone else.

…"Raquel's style is sultry, with a comfortable and elastic range that allows her to softly express boleros…this pint-of-dynamite will demonstrate she has it going on!" With her smooth, sultry vocals combined with her superb players' passion, experience, professionalism bring depth, flavor, and lively performance to any events. ~ Chuy Varela
