To be brief, Diego gets our highest recommendation if you are looking for a classical/Spanish guitar engagement. My wife and I had wanted something different in terms of music at our wedding. We are both decent amateur musicians and also some of our guests had graduate degrees in music performance so it was important that who we hired had a level of proficiency in their craft. After listening to a couple dozen guitarists online, I thought Spanish Guitar Chicago would fit the bill and reached out to them.
Despite being abroad, Diego responded within a day and we set up a meeting. From the initial meeting through each correspondence and finally concluding with the wedding, Diego was a delight and very professional - so easy to work with. He gave polite suggestions as needed throughout the planning process. At the wedding he gave us zero worries on a day when there is so much that could be worried about. His playing was fabulous as my wife and I were given many kudos throughout the evening for our selection - it gave our wedding an added level of uniqueness and class. Diego reads the crowd and blends seamlessly, always present but never overwhelming in his playing. Honestly, after listening to all his recordings on-line, much of his best repotoire is not recorded. Thanks Diego! Mark & Mary
