Omar was a gift... His wonderful music will haunt us forever. He learned two songs for our wedding and played them flawlessly and on cue. He set up ahead of time so that he was ready to go for his start time. His selection of music and the way he played his guitar so beautifully allowed people to relax and enjoy the wedding. He was extremely polite, and had an overall wonderful presence. His talent is admirable and we couldn't have been happier with our guitarist. I recommend no one else but Omar.

Omar performed at our ceremony in the church and at the reception site; needless to say he "made" the event! He was so personable, friendly and went out of his way to play music that really captured our family! The elderly family members were so thrilled and surprised that he knew music from the "good ol' days," and Omar is also versatile in learning contemporary music as well! He is a very nice and VERY talented man and we look forward to using his services in the future!

Omar did an AMAZING job on our ceremony music!!! It was absolutely beautiful! I have to admit that the ceremony music was the one thing that we didn't plan too far ahead on, and we were able to book him within only a couple weeks before our wedding!!! He was soo nice about it and was very responsive and quick about it! Honestly, we didn't even have a chance to meet with him before the wedding (scary I know), but we didn't even need to! We were able to see a few of his videos before we called him and just seeing those was enough! I talked with him and he sent me his music list of what he could play. We just picked all of our songs and sent them to him and that was it! He showed up with plenty of time to set up and was ready to go! We have zero complaints! He played so beautifully and even being a Catholic church ceremony he knew exactly what to do and when to play each song. HIGHLY recommend him!!!

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.
