Omar was outstanding! Perfect for an intimate setting. He really made our ceremony memorable. He is an extremely talented guitarist and vocalist. We also hired him to play after our ceremony for the cocktail hour at La Fonda. Our guest commented that he was remarkable.

Omar was excellent. I contacted him two days before our wedding/elopement on a whim. I wanted him to play a first dance song (Joshua Radin's, "Today") at the Rio Grande Bosque around sunset. He didn't know the song "Today," but learned it and played it very well in just TWO days! He sent me a vast play list of songs he could play. He was very flexible, reasonably priced, punctual, well-dressed, sweet and talented! If you want to add something extra special to your day/party/event - even if just for an hour, I highly recommend Omar. He is top notch!

While planning a destination wedding for my sister and her fiancé, I came upon many wonderful reviews for Omar Villanueva of Villanueva Entertainment and contacted him to see if he'd be willing to provide guitar music for our wedding & reception event in Taos. From beginning to end Omar was extremely professional, worked with us to bring to life the vision we had for the day and was so helpful in keeping within our budget for the event! He was even willing to learn two special songs for the day including "Marry Me" by Train which is not an easy song at all and "Blue Skies" as a special treat for our 95 year old grandmother; both songs were so lovely! He also did guest requests the night of the event! Our guests could not say enough about how much they enjoyed the music provided both for the wedding and the reception dinner. Omar arrived early on the day of the event and made everything as easy can be for us! We highly recommend Omar Villanueva for any special event and our only complaint is that we live 1200 miles away and can only wish we were closer so we'd be able to enjoy his music on a regular basis! Thank you Omar for your talent, time and warm hearted spirit!

Omar did a fantastic job at our wedding. We had 1/2 of the guests from NY and Boston, and the other half from Mexico. Both groups commented on what a great addition he was. Omar played during our dinner and we only wish he could have stayed longer.

My husband and I loved having Los Amigos play at our Wedding Ceremony. The music they played was absolutely amazing and exactly what we wanted. Omar is very pleasant to work with. I highly recommend Los Amigos for anyone looking for a professional, experienced group to play at their wedding or any other event. We will defintly be using them again.
