I am Duke Machado, President of the Hispanic Republican Club of McLennan County, and when Jesse asked me to provide feedback on our experience, I was honored to be able to express how satisfied we were with his band's professionalism and talent.
We were a newly formed Republican Club, and had planned a Launch Party to publicize our entry into the McLennan County political scene. The Launch would take place at the Hippodrome Theater, a Historic facility with ornate design and incredible acoustic qualities. We would be providing an evening of music, comedy and positive message about the emergence of Hispanics in the Republican Party. Guests included Senators, candidates for US Congressional District 17 and Texas Governor, prominent businessmen and women from McLennan and surrounding counties as well as local active members of the Republican Party.
When we started looking for a band to bring to perform for our very Conservative Republican audience, we thought long and hard about who would best suit our needs.
We discovered Jesse Garza via an internet search and found his website. After listening to a few of his songs and reading some reviews from past clients, we knew that we had found the right person for our event...now we just needed to secure him for that night.
During our conversation with Jesse, he mentioned that the date of our event just happened to be on his birthday. Immediately we assumed that he would not be able to perform for us, but to our surprise, he explained that our cause was important and that he would be honored to perform for our audience. We were thrilled as one can imagine!
On January 16th, 2010, Jesse and his band arrived in Waco just as scheduled. I introduced them to the sound manager and they setup their equipment and instruments. As they were setting up, I walked around and captured some video of their "Mic-test" which can be seen on You Tube.
As the theater came to almost full capacity, I knew that Acoustic Dream would be a hit, and as they were performing, it was obvious we had made the right choice. Feedback from people in attendance that night was completely positive. Everyone enjoyed their performance, and at the reception next door, they were able to meet the band members and get to know them.
If you are charged with the task of finding a band that will not only delight an audience, but also handle themselves with the utmost professionalism and courtesy, then I strongly suggest you hire Jesse Garza and his band Acoustic Dream. You will not be disappointed.
