I Create the perfect atmosphere for any occasion with the beautiful sounds of The Flamenco Spanish Guitar, I play modern music on finger style and Originals too. I like to play Live, no pre- recorded music . :)
Milton is 5-stars all the way. We saw him playing in a local venue over the summer (2018) and immediately wanted him to play our wedding. He plays the guitar beautifully and is fully engaged in helping you plan the music that will be the backdrop of your event. We had Milton play for 3.5 hours - as our guests were arriving/assembling, our wedding processional and recessional and then during our cocktail reception prior to supper. Everyone has raved about Milton's music - it really made our event that much more special.
Pick Milton if he is available for your date, you and your guests will love it!
I will post a couple of pictures when I get them!
Milton is a friendly, likeable performer. He doesn't arrive with pretense or his own set agenda of how the show must go. He is a very gifted musician. He can play modern pop hits to classic rock and everything in between. He perceives the vibe and crowd and adjusts his numbers accordingly. He was the perfect for our corporate celebration and would be a terrific addition to a more lively party. I strongly recommend him for your event.
Absolutely incredible experience working with Milton. First, our guests can’t stop raving about how incredible our music was. I am glad there’s Spotify and a CD because we couldn’t get enough! Everything was seamless from the ceremony to the cocktail hour and reception to the dancing! And Milton was a pleasure to work with - he felt more like a friend and guest with the bonus of truly stunning music. Highly recommend. :)
We chose Milton to DJ and play guitar for our wedding in Palm Springs. He was absolutely exceptional! He played guitar for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and through dinner, then DJed the dance. It was even better than we could have hoped, he truly exceeded our already very high expectations. Milton kept the dance floor packed. We cannot say enough good things about him. During and after the wedding, our guests could just not stop raving about how great the Milton and the music were. We highly recommend Milton.
Milton was amazing! He was engaging with all guest and they didn't want him to leave.
His music was everything thing that I asked for and I would highly recommend to anyone. He will not disappoint you or your guests.
Milton is an incredibly talented musician and an absolute pleasure to deal with. He saved the day after our original guitarist went MIA the day before our wedding. Milton came through the night before the ceremony with a calm confidence that he could play all of the songs we needed and to be at peace and not stress out about it. He played a beautiful set as everyone arrived and through cocktail hour. Thanks Milton!
Milton played the guitar for our cocktail hour the day before my wedding and he was AWESOME!
He was super personable, professional and everyone enjoyed his music at the event. He was always sure to give a smile to everyone at the party.
Even though we originally said that we would not need to use the microphone he brought for a speech, we called an audible in the middle of the event and Milton was still able to accommodate without missing a beat (pardon the pun).
I would highly recommend Milton to anyone considering his services!
Great performance for our Country Club. We have booked him for next season. Do yourself a favor and add him to your entertainment schedule.
Milton MADE my party. His happy presence and beautiful music brought such joy to my event. I hope I can come back to Palm Springs and throw another party so that we can experience him again! He's a legend.
Milton was such a pleasure to work with. He is very talented and made our special evening complete. I would absolutely book him again for any event.
We can only highly recommend Milton for any events, dinners as his know how and music selection is just great to make a party very fun!
We met Milton in Palm spring during our company retreat and are now planning to book him again for a birthday party in LA and for sure even more events!
He came with all the equipment, lighting, sound system and several guitares!! He was very friendly with our whole team and made our dinner quite memorable.
Response from Milton Merlos Productions:
It was my pleasure to perform at your fantastic company retreat . Looking forward to see you all again in the near future.
Old Town Artisan Studio had their Hearts for Art nongala at the beautiful 14,000 sq ft home of philanthpist for arts Donna MacMillan on January 23rd. Milton was asked to provide music in her outdoor patio as 154 guests were blessed with Donna's warm reception and beautiful art collection. She was extremely impressed with Miltons music and kind spirit.
He gave this wonderful night the perfect touch.
Milton Merlos played flamenco guitar for a group of ten who had rented a house in Rancho Mirage. He was recommended by a chef who was cooking a Spanish dinner for us. Both were wonderful! Milton had us all dancing before the evening was over. He is not only very talented, but also extremely personable and accommodating. Can play all kinds of music, but flamenco guitar is his specialty. Brought all the AV equipment, lights, etc. I would highly recommend him and would definitely have him entertain us again!!
Made the wedding and reception very classy with his beautiful music. Also, DJ'd after dinner and got everyone on the dance floor. Did everything we asked - a rare find. He is a very thorough professional that follows through with his promises. Even Skyped with our daughter to insure her singing was the best when the bride came down the aisle (he made her feel very comfortable). We will use him again for our next event !!
Milton performed at my recent wedding. From flamenco guitar to recorded music, he did a superb job. All our guests were blown away. I couldn't be more thrilled!! Thank you so much for making our evening special. Xoxo
We hired Milton to perform for our wedding ceremony and during our dinner service. His passion for music was so infectious that all of the guest could not stop talking about him. He showed incredibly warmth to our guest as he played and brought such an amazing energy to our whole wedding. He offered to learn whatever song I wanted to walk down the aisle to, so I picked "Can't Help Falling In Love", and to hear it live while walking down the aisle was such a magical moment. He played many different varieties of music including U2, Metallica, and John Legend. It was awesome. I would hire Milton over and over again for any event I was throwing
I hired Milton to play at my wedding ceremony. He was professional, courteous, and even learned a new song to play at the wedding. He is an extremely talented guitar player and I would highly recommend him for any event.
