We had Trio Caliente perform at our small wedding (15 adults) and it could not have been more perfect. They entered an exited without making a sound and the hour that they played was truly one of the highlights of the night. My only regret is that we didn't book them for longer for an hour! They were flexible with the songs they played and Michael was always very responsive via phone or e-mail. Thanks for making our special day amazing!
We hired Trio Caliente for our wedding this Spring. They were absolutely amazing. Michael played guitar beautifully while my wife walked down the aisle and it was such a special moment. He is a great guitar player and knows literally every song (or will learn it for you). The music for dancing during the reception was outstanding. They blended a great mix of there beautiful songs, common wedding hits with a salsa flare and great Latino music. Every guest thought they were outstanding and you will not make a mistake hiring them.
Michael is also very responsive to phone calls. We usually just left him a message and he would call back within the next hour.
