Diego Alonso was an absolute pleasure to work with. As a planner, working with a musician who is at the top of his game musically AND professionally makes my stress level diminish considerably, and Diego was both of those things. The music was BEAUTIFUL; and his communication, timeliness, and overall professionalism were so appreciated. I would highly recommend him!

We had the distinct pleasure of having Diego over at our home for a party this past weekend. He did not disappoint! What a talent! Diego is not only friendly and kind, he is a very talented musician. His fingers move like nothing I've ever seen and the music they produce is simply beautiful. He played for two hours, we couldn't get enough, people started dancing and we asked him to stay for more. Overall, a phenomenal experience and such a treat. He made the night very special and my friends and I won't forget it any time soon.

We were fortunate to engage Diego Alonso for an evening of classical guitar at our home for a private party. He arrived promptly and set up inconspicuously. He provided two hours of beautiful music including one hour accompanying a wonderful flamenco dancer. On behalf of all 80 of our guests, five stars were definitely earned for enhancing our evening and providing a very special touch to the gathering.   Diego is highly recommendable!   As an added touch, he bravely allowed me to sing some songs with his accompaniment for our guests. Top-notch service!

Diego is a true professional performer.  He arrived exactly on time.  He set up on our outside patio.  His playing was lovely and was enjoyed by all the guests.  I would eagerly use him again.

Diego Alonso with Sonanta Music Productions was the first and only musician I contacted to play at my wedding in July of 2018 and I am so happy that I did. From the first e-mail exchange I had with Diego, I sensed that he was professional, thorough and very reasonable. I was right; I really can't say enough about him. Not only is Diego incredibly talented and will bring a unique and lovely sound to your event, but he is a total professional and was a pleasure to work with. 

Initially Diego was going to play at our cocktail reception and during the luncheon, but he ended up accompanying the violinist for the recessional which was a total treat and a great segue into the next part of the wedding. In addition and per my request, he had an accompanist join him for the last hour and a half of the luncheon to bring more energy to the room. Since one of my guests is a professor flamenco dancer, Diego and his colleague played a Sevillana upon request and she performed for my guests. It was amazing! Both Diego and his colleague were a total hit and the majority of the compliments we received after the wedding were attributed to his music and talent. 

If you are tired of loud DJs and looking for a unique, sophisticated and energetic sound at your wedding, look no further than Spanish Guitar Chicago. I only wish I had another social event where I could hire Diego!

Diego played our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. The music was beautiful and he was super professional. He contacted us before hand to get to know our musical taste and make suggestions. He even learned a couple of our faviorite songs and played them flawlessly with a little extra flare! Even I got a little misty eyed (the groom)! 

Highly recommend Diego!! Thanks for making our day even more special!!!

“We could not have been more delighted with the music provided by Carlo & Diego [The Spanish Guitar Duo]. They performed a variety of classical Spanish guitar music pieces and even took a request to play a piece by the Gipsy Kings. Their music was absolutely beautiful & they are wonderful guitar players! We received many amazing comments & inquiries from our guests including the guests of honor on how much the enjoyed the music. Thank you Carlo & Diego for helping us create this beautiful memory for my brother and his wife on the their anniversary!”

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!!!!

Diego, I was VERY happy with your performance. Thank you so much for being so accommodating with your time and your talent. I very much hope that we can find a way to work together again in the future. I'll let you know when I have the song, promotional video, and the animated video ready. Again, thank you!”

My wife and I had Diego and Patty perform for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. We could not have asked for more! We met with Diego a few months before and he made us feel at ease right away. After that, we had several requests which we corresponded about in email and he was quick to accommodate everything. Diego and Patty even learned a song that we asked for that was not in their repertoire that we wanted in our ceremony. They arrived 30 minutes early, promptly set up, and started playing upbeat Spanish guitar tunes. In the cocktail hour, they played a lot of American Classic and classic rock and pop songs. At the end of the cocktail hour, it was time for them to pack up and leave but they stayed an extra 20 minutes or so to play during the introduction of bridal party, groomsmen, and us. We didn't ask for that. It was a super nice bonus. Many of our guests complimented their performance. If you want to have an expert Spanish guitar player, and a singer with beautiful voice to make your ceremony/cocktail hour sound perfect, look no further. Thanks Diego and Patty!
