Moonlight Jazz (Acoustic jazz trio for private party)


The company I work for (Decca Design) holds a client appreciation party every year on our backyard patio. We found Raquel on gigsalad.com and when I presented the band options to the president, she without question chose Raquel and her band. The samples she had up were great and accurate to how they sound in person. Raquel responded to my email promptly and even offered us a special rate for booking with her for the first time. The band had another gig before ours, and to make sure everything ran smooth they came the night before to drop off equipment and set up their instruments. They were more than accommodating for our event, and they performance was talked about by many of our clients. It was a big hit! And we will definitely be contacting them for next years party. Thanks Raque!

Raquel and her Duo (Corporate Function)


What a pleasure it was to work with Band For Events! I initially contacted Raquel for a Latin band for our school Auction in May but she also helped with coordinating one of her talented musicians Ryan to come and do a performance at our school assembly in March as part of Culture Week and the students were blown away! Band for Events is extremely talented, professional, passionate about performing and tailoring their performances to suit the clients needs. I can’t wait for Raquel and her band to get the party started at our upcoming event in May!

Ryan (Percussionist and Teacher)


I booked Raquel and her accompanists for a small indoor engagement party.  They set up in the family room, which is the level below the main area (but totally open to kitchen).   They showed up on time, played the time I booked them for with a small break, and were absolutely fantastic.  Surpassed my expectations.   All 3 musicians were courteous, well dressed, sober & did not smoke (or smell of smoke).  They got their truly enormous amount of equipment down my rather narrow stairs swiftly, quietly, and without breaking anything.   And the music was great!!!!!!   So many people danced, which I was not expecting at all (no dance floor).

Raquel and her Duo (Private Event)


Raquel was the only band to respond promptly and professionally to my inquiry. Very quick to respond and accessible to all of my questions. Easy to work with. So, about our event. I threw a small surprise party for my wife’s 40th bday at our house. Raquel, her drummer, and pianist arrived with enough time to set up and begin their performance at the planned time. Although I only booked them for one hour, they sounded fantastic and professional. Would definitely hire them again.

Raquel and her Duo (Surprise Birthday Party)


My wife and I asked Raquel for a few hours of music for our wedding reception last month in San Francisco. It was warm, intimate, and everyone was very impressed with the quality and friendliness of the music and band. Furthermore, our venue had some restrictions regarding live music (no brass or percussion), and Raquel was able to accommodate to our needs with ease. Well priced, well played, I highly recommend her for anyone needing smooth Bossa Nova/latin/jazz music for an event!

Raquel and her Duo (Wedding)


We booked Raquel and her band from out of state and Raquel was so easy to contact and work with. I told her a little about the event and she choose the perfect set list for us. We had about 500 international attendees at our event and Raquel’s music really made it special. They sounded wonderful and created a lovely and warm atmosphere for the night. All our attendees were very impressed, I’m so glad we booked them, and would definitely book them again for future events.

Raquel and her Trio (Corporate Annual Event)


Raquel and her band were great at our office holiday party, we were in a hotel function room and she worked with the hotel to take care of her own logistics, which was great, she was proactive to contact the hotel and get things done. Not only that we had requested a special song with custom lyrics as a surprise song which she pulled off in a great way. Great voice, and perfect for our holiday party.
