Spanish guitar is the perfect choice for parties and weddings in San Diego! From romantic to festive flamenco, it compliments the Spanish heritage and architecture found through out the area. It is a perfect fit for San Diego's beautiful hotels and churches or for a sunny outdoor wedding in the garden or on the beach.
For cocktail hours and parties guitar is unobtrusive, allowing you to enjoy your guests as well as the music. It is vibrant, rhythmic, and fun. A perfect transition to a festive reception.
William’s music brings rhythm and a touch of class with more than 20 years performance experience.
We hired Mr. Wilson for a dinner party on Feb 18, 2017. Only thing I can say it was a great night and Mr. Wilson played for 3 hours making the night wonderful for every guest at the party. If your looking for someone that does it right, you don't have to look-just book Mr. Wilson and your music worries are over.
Response from Spanish and Classical Guitar: William Wilson:
Thanks Rick! It was an honor to play for such a beautiful and meaningful event. :-)
William played classical Spanish pieces at a cocktail party I hosted at La Jolla Shores hotel. His music is hauntingly beautiful and he's a very accomplished guitarist. The catering representative at the hotel loved his playing so much that she took his card for future reference. Everyone loved it. Thank you, William!
My wife, Kelly, and I had the absolute pleasure of having William perform at our wedding ceremony this past August. Having had done a little research on his experience and being a musician myself, I had high expectations, yet he flat out exceeded them.
William is an exquisite player who brings the songs and the pieces he plays to life. He created a beautiful audio backdrop for our wedding that we were truly fortunate to have. All in attendance were wow'd by what he added to the ceremony. He is great to work with. Very professional, polite, and just a really nice guy. I highly, highly, highly recommend him for your next event.
William did a great job setting the mood for our Client Appreciation event at the Orfila Vineyards. He was so great and easy to work with. His music was beautiful and I even had guests asking where they can but his music.
We hired William Wilson to play during our wedding's outdoor cocktail hour and he was phenomenal. Unfortunately we were off taking pictures during most of his playing, but when we walked in, we were so happy with the mood he had set for our guests. We would recommend him to anyone seeking an exceptional guitarist for a wedding.
Wiliam was absolutely the perfect choice for our holiday party! We received many positive comments about his music from our guests. His music set the mood beautifully and still allowed for easy conversation among our guests. Very professional and easy to work with.
We enjoyed William's beautiful music and talent for our backyard party. It was the highlight of the evening. We had him play for 3 1/2 hours, and he was phenomenal. What a special touch to make a party so memorable.
William played Spanish Guitar at my birthday party. He played on our patio for a dinner/cocktail sytle party. His music set the ambiance for a memorable evening. We are happy to have found a great musician and professional. We don't have to travel to Spain to enjoy a great spanish guitar show, because William brought Spain to our backyard!! Our guests were blown away by his talent. He arrived on time, and setup up in a flash. William was polite and friendly, and we could'nt ask for better service.
We were so pleased with William's music, we already booked him for a future event.
William played classical and Spanish guitar music at my wife's birthday party. Everyone who attended was very favorably impressed with his virtuosity. He let me select some of the music, and the music he added was beautiful.
William Wilson played the Spanish guitar at my wedding a couple of weeks ago and did a spectacular job!!! My husband Firas and I...along with 520 guests couldn't be any more pleased with our selection for dinner entertainment. His elegant instrumentals made our wedding that much more enjoyable and we highly recommend booking William for your events!!
William was a professional with a warm personality. As a guitarist, he is flawless. My guests at my sons baptism reception fell in love with his music and asked for his information. I'm positive we will be using him for future events.
William Wilson played for a mixed-age group of people at my mother and my birthday party (my 60th - her 80th.) The music was loud enough to be heard but not deafening. Because we had a casual party setting surrounding a pool, having William play the guitar was an added enhancement to our afternoon. He plays wonderfully - beautiful Spanish and classical. He is not only highly professional and polite, but arrived punctual and set up his equipment without any fuss. Likewise, he properly removed his equipment and was on his way at the end of the day. I would highly recommend William Wilson for anyone wanting a nice afternoon or evening filled with beautiful background guitar music.
I have been listening to William play guitar for the past 10+ years, and am always amazed at his expertise. He makes playing the guitar look effortless, and his selection of pieces is always wonderful. I never tire of listening to and watching William play his guitar.
I've been listening to William perform for quite a few years. He is an outstanding artist, and he shines when he is playing on his own.
The passion he has for great music comes through with every measure; he plays with amazing technique and even greater feeling. When he played for my modest event, he was as much engaged as he is in front of hundreds of people. His mastery of serious classical guitar makes even a more "popular" piece take on a concert quality. People who heard him that day stopped talking and just listened. A true testimony to his ability to capitivate and hold an audience.
I've seen William perform many times. His virtuosity is exceptional, but what I love about his playing is when he soars into amazing solos. His passion for the music he plays is compelling. Can't get enough.
William Wilson is an unbelievably amazing guitarist. I am an orchestral conductor and pianist, and am well aware of what it takes to be such an amazing musician as he is. I have hired Mr. Wilson's services in the past, and would hire him a million times over in the future. His technique is absolutely superb and flawless. He is an utterly brilliant guitarist. It is just amazing to see the kind of sounds he can get from this wonderful instrument. You can simply listen to his solo albums available on ITUNES to see what I am referring to, and you will agree that there is no other guitarist to hire for any of your needs!
