I highly recommend Fernando Diez. He is a professional talented sax player. I definetely want to work with him in the future.
Fernando was truly amazing. He entertained our guests at our wedding during the Cocktail Hour, which was the perfect touch. We received compliments from all our guests through the evening. He was very easy to work with and coordinated with our Wedding Planner all the details; a true professional. We would definitely contact him and refer for future events.
Fernando performed at our Cocktail Reception Yacht Debut party. He was excellent and knew just the right tempo and music to play. A very talented musician who played saxophone and flute. We would definitely hire him again. It was a pleasure.
Fernando was remarkable, first off he was punctual that was a big plus.. Although I had my own equipment, he bought his own gear which sounded really good. He performed well, which topped off the night. Everyone enjoyed the soulfulness that he bought will playing the sax. Great Job Fernando Will book again.
AMAZING. Fernando went above and beyond entertaining our 100 guests at the cocktail hour after our wedding ceremony. He walked all over, played for guests directly, and had an amazing attitude. All of our guests raved about how unbelievable he was. He truly added the classic vibe to our old hollywood wedding. He also learned a jazz version for our main entrance to the reception of "our song" which was originally a rap song called "Knock You Down" by Keri Hilson and Kanye West. He added such fun and class at the same time to the most memorable night of our lives.
