We are so happy that we hired Daniel! He added that special romantic element to the ceremony. Our contact beforehand was great, he helped me pick a few songs and was very responsive. He was also very affordable, especially for the level of talent he clearly has. I highly recommend hiring Daniel for any event!" —Kari D, South Lake Tahoe, CA (gig ID# 2806540)

"Daniel, to say that your performance with Francesca was the highlight of our Evening Classical Guitar Concert Series would be an understatement. From your first piece to the last the audience was captivated and enthralled. Your incredible musicality and subtle shaping of melody and harmony weaved a performance not to be forgotten anytime soon." —Robert Mathews, producer, Yuba College Evening Classical Guitar Concert Series. June 2013
"Daniel, what a wonderful evening. Both you and Francesca were a hit with everyone. Some of the comments I received were: 'The evening went too fast. I was mesmerized by the music.' 'This is what we moved here for. The music along with the education was brilliant.'
You raised the bar very high for the next performance. I can't thank you enough for creating a program that I had only envisioned. I will pass your name along to a few other associations that I know of. I will look into all three of your recommendations.
Again, thank you and Francesca for giving us such a soulful evening." —Richard Garcia, Club Los Maganos, Brentwood, CA. Jan 2013
