Tomasito and his crew were professional, reliable, exceedingly friendly and a pleasure to work with. I told him exactly what I was looking for and he was able to provide with no hesitation. Everyone enjoyed the music and his band provided just the right atmosphere for what we were looking for. Thank you for making our poolside cocktail reception fun and enjoyable. I would not hesitate to hire you again. =)
Thank you so much, Tomasito, for really delivering such a great vibe and sound for our daughters big 1! Tomasito and Lloyd brought the sound of upbeat, yet vibey, Caribbean music for our all day event. He was truly a professional, an amazing musician and a great performer! Highly recommended! Thanks so much.
Tomasito Cruz and his salsa band are unbelievable. Besides being masterful musicians, they know how to turn an event into a memory that will last a lifetime. Our event was a birthday party for my mother-in-law. It was a night she will never forget. The music made her incredibly happy and all of the guests could not stop praising the band.
In a world of multiple music options, Tomasito Cruz and his band are unmatched. They stand head and shoulders above every other option I've ever seen. Their disposition was wonderful and their performance electric. Guests were spellbound at the mastery the band exhibited. They blew away our wildest expectations. If given the opportunity, I would never contemplate any other band. My family and I give them our highest recommendation.
I have done now three events with them and they are always a hit. My guests always ask for their business card. They make my events shine. The talent is way above expectations, so professional. Always arrive early and set up everything perfectly. Their equipment is always pristine. I had never ever in 15 years doing events found a band of this quality in this city. They are Artists and true professionals. I know they travel nationwide and International. If I did an event anywhere else, I too would fly them in. By NO means hesitate to hire this band. They are top notch!
I am beyond glad that I found Tomasito! It was my wedding reception but he was the star of the night!!! Everyone danced the entire time (even my 90 year old grandparents got up and danced)!! I made a list of some artists I wanted him to play and he DELIVERED! My guests didn't want the night to end because they wanted to keep dancing and hearing him sing! He plays incredible, I do not have the words to describe how AMAZING he sings!! Without a doubt Ill make sure to hire him for any party/event I'll host in the future!!!!
My wedding was American/ Latin and every single guest danced. I had a wedding planner but I found Tomasito myself and my wedding planner and photographer were beyond obsessed after hearing him play and sing! I know for sure my wedding planner will work with him in the future for other weddings or events!!! So will everyone who attended (they all kept asking me for his name and contact info) because everyone ADORED him!!!!!!
Do no hesitate to hire him and his band. He will make any party/reception/event come to LIFE!
I cannot thank him and the band enough to have come and played on my wedding! I honored that they played and they made everyone dance and have a great time! I wish I can upload some videos and photos to this review!
What to Expect
After sharing glory and Grammys with greats like Celia Cruz, Willy Chirino, Arturo Sandoval, Alejandro Sanz and many others, Tomasito released his first official solo work called Candela. Here he introduces himself for the first time as singer and songwriter, never sacrificing the amazement of his congas in this one of a kind production. The fusion of Afro-Beat and Latin Jazz comes in a smoother fashion from the hands of this virtuoso.
