So I contacted him once, he was quick to get back in touch with me. We spent two weeks trying to work out the logistics of the occasion because I live out of state from the woman that I adore. It was her birthday that weekend and I was looking for a way to make it totally unforgettable. Anyway, he was more than flexible when things got out of order and the schedule got mixed up. We ended up planning a subtle session in the hotel in which I was staying for the days I was in Chicago. He arrived totally on time, I disappeared shortly to get him situated and let him set up and then went back to meet my girlfriend. I took her to the room where he was already playing softly, asked her to close her eyes before we walked in and you should have seen her face when I asked her to open them. He was softly playing and she was in awe of the occasion. I asked her to dance with me while he sang and played and we were lost in the beauty of the Bossa Nova style and classic renditions/adaptations of amazing love songs from The Beatles to amazing Brazilian musicians. Luis was a total professional the entire time, charming with his skills and passion for music and definitely a part of a great memory. I consider him a friend after helping out like he did and will always ask for him whenever I'm in the city. He really helped me create a lifelong memory for my love, something she can always cherish no matter what.
