Talented and easy to work with!
Miguel was great to work with. His talent provided an amazing element to our wedding ceremony and our happy hour cocktail reception. His A/V set up was affordable and worked with our venue, despite the wind we had that day, he was able to pivot and provide a different microphone so our officiant could be well heard. I highly recommend Miguel if you're looking for a Spanish and elegant flair. Thanks Miguel!!Sent on 09/25/2019

Excellent service and beautiful music!!!!!
We were so pleased with the overall experience with Miguel De Maria. He was well worth the investment! The price was very affordable and very competitive!! From the moment I emailed him for his services until the day of our wedding!! He was very quick and attentive to respond to me and I trusted him right away to do my ceremony and cocktail hour music!! It was completely stress free working with him!! I didn't even have to, nor did I want to pick any of the songs out for the day of our wedding. I trusted him to choose everything!! I was so pleased how beautiful everything turned out!! All of my guest loved him!! I would hire him in a second if I needed his services again and would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants beautiful music at their wedding or any special event!!! Thank you again Miguel De Maria for making our day so special!!!Sent on 11/06/2018

If there was any way to make the Royal Palms any more enchanting - than I highly suggest that you hire Miguel. My husband and I knew from the start we wanted some form of acoustic music for our ceremony and reception. Being that my hubby is Latino and I grew up traveling to Mexico every summer, we knew it would be Spanish guitar. Miguel came highly-recommended from both our wedding planner and several DJs we were prospecting. He clearly has a great name here in the Valley for his work and it's much deserved. I am beyond pleased with the ambiance he created which completely fulfilled our wedding vision (romantic, boho-chic). Thank you, Miguel. I want to get married again so we can hear your beautiful melodies. <3 Perhaps an anniversary gift to ourselves.Sent on 07/27/2018

My husband and I could not be happier that we chose Miguel de Maria for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour! Miguel is friendly, professional, and responsive, and wildly talented. His beautiful Spanish guitar added such a special, romantic touch to our wedding. I highly recommend Elegant Spanish Guitar to all and for any type of event (especially a wedding).Sent on 04/27/2018
Elegant Spanish Guitar, Miguel de Maria's reply:Thanks, Kira! It was an honor to play at your wedding, and you were truly a pleasure to work with. Best wishes!

We are so glad we hired Miguel to play during guests' arrival, our ceremony and the cocktail hour that followed. He learned the song we specially requested for the ceremony and played it beautifully. His cocktail hour songs were the perfect complement and helped set the tone. His rates were fair and he is just a genuinely good and easygoing person who was easy to work with during the stressful planning phase. We cannot recommend Miguel highly enough.Sent on 01/20/2018

Miguel recently played during the ceremony and cocktail hour at my wedding at the Royal Palms. From the very start, Miguel was responsive, professional, and extremely talented. He was so easy to work with, and added such a special touch to my wedding day! His music is absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much Miguel for being apart of my wedding day!Sent on 11/20/2017

Miguel was wonderful to work with - going above and beyond to meet our needs. He was very accommodating agreeing to learn new songs, without hesitation. He even agreed to sing one of the songs, even though he doesn't generally sing.Sent on 01/21/2018
His music was perfect for our wedding and we were very happy with the service he provided. We would recommend him to anyone else who was looking for a Spanish guitar player for their wedding or event.
Thanks, Miguel. We are very happy we selected you for our wedding.

I worked with Miguel de Maria recently and hired him for the 4th Annual White Party of the Junior League of Phoenix. I couldn't have found a better artist for our fundraising event! From the moment I contacted him, he was extremely professional and courteous. The guests loved him and he really added to the ambience of the event. He was a pleasure to meet in person and I absolutely recommend him for any and all special events!Sent on 04/10/2017

Miguel was AMAZING. He is such a talented musician. He did all of the ceremonial music, which was beautiful. He also did the cocktail hour music. It was SO entertaining and impressive. I am so glad I chose him.Sent on 04/23/2017

Richard · event on: 02/18/2017
Miguel added such an elegant touch to our 25th anniversary party. We began with cocktails in the Adobe room at Lon's, where he played his beautiful Latin guitar for 40 of our friends. A bit before we began dinner in the Stetson room, he discreetly moved his setup so that when our guests entered the room, the sound of his music would seamlessly flow from one venue to the other. It was a wonderful time, with lively conversation and much laughter. But the feedback we heard time after time was how much everyone loved Miguel's music and how it added to their enjoyment of the evening. He's a class act all the way.Sent on 04/04/2017
Elegant Spanish Guitar, Miguel de Maria's reply:Richard, thanks so much for having me as part of your event. Hope things are going great for you!
Teri · Married on 01/21/2017
We hired Miguel for our ceremony and cocktail hour entertainment. He was very easy to work with, he was responsive, punctual, professional, and (most of importantly) played beautifully. It was also a cold and almost rainy day for a wedding, but he came prepared for that as well! If you are looking for a guitarist, Miguel is your man!Sent on 03/05/2017
Elegant Spanish Guitar, Miguel de Maria's reply:Thanks for the awesome review!
Alissa · Married on 11/26/2016
Miguel was amazing and everyone loved him. It was so nice to work with him. I live in another country and he made it so easy to plan for the music and when the big day finally arrived I knew it was going to be perfect. He was really helpful in figuring out music choices and was able to play my favorite song when I walked down the aisle. I highly recommend him.Sent on 03/20/2017
Elegant Spanish Guitar, Miguel de Maria's reply:Thanks Alissa! It was a pleasure driving down to Tucson for your wedding. I remember when you first contacted me, I was in Hawaii and you were in Asia and your wedding was to be in Arizona. :)
Stacey · Married on 10/19/2016
Miguel played our event at The Wright House in Mesa, AZ in October 2016. Our entire experience (from booking, to billing, to communication, to the event performace) was top notch. He played Spanish Guitar for our garden party event and was the highlight to our elegant evening. Miguel understood crowd demeanor and event-flow cues without me having to instruct him, knowing exactly when to break for toasts, speeches, and presentations seamlessly. I can't wait to have him at another event because the background ambiance he provided elevated our event, helping make it the talk of the town.Sent on 10/25/2016
Elegant Spanish Guitar, Miguel de Maria's reply:Thanks Stacey, you guys were very nice folks and fun to play for!
Wendy · Married on 10/09/2016
I can’t say enough great things about Miguel. We got married in Desert Mountain in Scottsdale and their event people highly recommended him. I live in Colorado so I wasn’t able to meet him but he was always very responsive, sent me some samples of his music and I was sold!- We chose what we wanted him to play for different parts of the ceremony, cocktail hour and part of the dinner. All our guests were wowed! I can’t thank him enough for being such a professional and for making our wedding such a special, fun and elegant event.Sent on 10/24/2016
Elegant Spanish Guitar, Miguel de Maria's reply:Thank you Wendy! It was a pleasure to be part of the wedding!
Cathy · Married on 12/19/2015
My dream was to have live music played prior to the wedding ceremony and during the reception. Miguel was perfect. He is so talented and professional. He quickly responds to any questions that you might have. He arrives early and is a joy to work with. He created such an elegant atmosphere with his music I had wanted a certain song played that wasn't in Miguel's repertoire and that he likes several weeks to learn it. With only a weeks notice, Miguel played our song as we were pronounced husband and wife! What a gift! All our guests were very impressed with him. He is a gem.Sent on 01/04/2016
Elegant Spanish Guitar, Miguel de Maria's reply:Thank you for the review and it was an honor to play at your wedding. Keep in touch!
