We booked Carlos for our daughters engagement party. He was absolutely fantastic and we wouldn’t hesitate in booking him again. He was very professional mad the day that bit more special. We have already recommended him to a few people and will continue to do so as when asked.

I called Carlos 2 weeks ago to ask if he was available for a surprise proposal party for my daughter. Carlos was charming - informed me that he did have availability, sent me song set list, discussed exactly what was required on the day. Arrived promptly - chatted with our guests, played beautifully. Cant thank him enough for making our party such a special occasion. Lauren Dobkins

Carlos was brilliant I only booked him the night before for my 50th birthday garden party and he squeezed us in before another gig. He played along with our DJ’s and solo. He Made the night.
