Spanish Guitar Duo: Reviews

We had Diego, Carlo & Chihsuan from Sonanta Music Productions play at our wedding reception. They played as a duo for the cocktail hour and dinner and a trio for the after dinner party. They were fantastic and we received many compliments! Working with Diego was definitely a pleasure, he was easy to work with and very responsive to all our requests. We would definitely recommend them to anyone considering guitarists for their event!!!

Diego and Carlo were the perfect soundtrack for our ceremony and cocktail reception. Our only regret: Not sitting down and watching them play! We received many compliments and would definitely recommend them for anyone interested in talented Spanish guitar players!!!!

Carlo and Diego (Spanish/Latin Guitar Duo) played the ceremony and cocktail reception for my outdoor wedding, and we could not have been more thrilled. They are beyond talented. A few of our guests were asking how they can hear more, buy the CD etc. Also, I originally started researching string quartets because that just seemed like the route people take for wedding music. I'm so glad we went with a Spanish guitar duo. It was different, fun, classic, and a real crowd pleaser. I strongly suggest that brides book them!

I hired Diego and Carlo to play for a surprise engagement and they absolutely exceeded my expectations and then some.  They were very accommodating to my schedule and it was truly a night to remember.  Not only are they talented musicians, but they are very personable as well and made the entire evening enjoyable from start to finish.  Highly recommended!  Will be hiring them again in the future for other events.

Communication with Diego and Sonanta Music Productions was clear and prompt starting from the day I requested information. The day of my wedding Diego and Carlo arrived extra early for set up and were able to enchant our guest with their amazing talent and magical flamenco sounds. I would definitely recommend everyone to experience the same exceptional service as I did.

We cannot say enough how wonderful Diego and Carlo were at our July 5th wedding! We had family in town from Spain for the celebration and they were so touched by the gesture, and more importantly thought their music was fantastic. Diego was incredibly professional, and accomodating, and together they truly made our wedding magical. I'm sure someone in our family will be hiring him soon for their next party!

“I was impressed with Diego's and Carlo's authentic and passionate sound from their website. When I contacted them for my client’s event Diego was responsive and professional in handling my inquiry and expressed genuine interest in taking care of my client. I knew they would be awesome for the event and my client booked them right away. On the day of the event, Diego and Carlo set up, started playing on time and immediately livened up the room! My client and their guests raved about them and the enjoyable ambiance they created at the event.   The passion they have for music shows in their beautiful sounds. It’s a pleasure working with such talented artists as Diego Alonso and Carlo Basile. I also attend their performances in the city. Have you seen their full ensemble performance? They are incredible!! I highly recommend them for anyone seeking an amazing entertainment experience.”
