Nothing is better than having live musicians at your wedding. Sometimes bands can be expensive, however, even just one or two musicians can set a different tone. I recently had the chance to talk with Miami Guitarist, Carlos Abanto to discuss the music services he offers for Miami weddings.
Miami Wedding Examiner: What services do you provide?
Carlos: Musicians services for weddings: ceremonies, cocktail parties and receptions.
MWE: What kind of music is available for wedding ceremonies and receptions?
Carlos: We play mostly Classical for ceremonies (all the standards: Canon in D, Ave Maria, both Wedding Marches, etc.) We play mostly Jazz, Bossa and Flamenco for cocktail parties; and dancing music for receptions.
MWE: How many years experience do you have?
Carlos: More than 10 years. I work with many Agents and Planners. If you request a Guitarist to any Agent in South Florida, you have a very good chance to end up having me. Experience and reliability, that's me.
They know, and they call me.
MWE: What is the price range for services?
Carlos: Any of my musicians or I charge $200 for the first hour + $100 for any additional hour.
MWE: Where can I hear samples of music?
Carlos: You may request me samples via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or you may go to YouTube. When there, just type "Carlos Abanto" in the Search box. I have several acts posted.
