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.

Los Amigos Mexican Trio was outstanding! They played at my church wedding ceremony. They were everything you would expect from a professional group and more. They were early, played beautiful music, and were all around great to work with. Everyone at my ceremony was in awe of their talent. I highly recommend Los Amigos to play at any event, they will make it extra special and entertaining!

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!
I can't count the number of times I have heard Omar Villanueva at various events and I love his music every time!!! He fits in no matter the event as Omar is so versatile. You can't go wrong having him there to entertain your guests!
