Orlando and Yanice are brilliant musicians, they have played in 3 of our conferences and they carry such excellence. I would recommend both of them to any one who desires to have them play at their events.

Overall, Yanice and her musicians exceeded my expectation. The music during the ceremony was sweet and warm. The music during the dinner was more than just background music as many guests came up to us to tell how good the band was. You guys are true musicians with heart and I can tell that it's not just business as usual. We would definitely recommend you guys without any hesitations for future events.

I performed with Yanice as a string duo as well as jazz band, she is a delicate and talented musician, and I admire her professionalism, stage presence, gentle personality and positive energy.
