How does your business stand out?

I am a devoted musician and singer. My capabilities have allow me to perform professionally in many venues around the world. I am passionate. I learn new songs and i compose new songs every week. As a female guitarist and singer, I have experienced the magic of music in many levels, in many languages and with many talents that I have the fortune to share the stage with. I am a twice winner of the SAMMIES Awards in Sacramento, 2012 as an Outstanding Latin Artist, and in 2016 as a World Musician.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Being able to create music and to bring the joy and emotion to people is the best part of my job. No two events are the same, and many of my friends were once my clients. I connect with people, I establish a relationship that they feel comfortable with. I work with my client's wishes and desires of music. My work is to make my clients happy and satisfied of what I do. I work very well with people. I am easy to communicate, easy to organize with. My clients are always my priority and that big smile, a big thank you and a new friendship is always my biggest compensation.

    Dinorah's #1 fan
    When I got married the party couldn't have been more incredible, had it not been for the amazing talent of Dinorah! The band has performed a few times not only on my personal gatherings but in various public venues.. I am a huge fan of the multi-talented band! Bringing the best to the Sacramento area! I'm lucky to have the few albums that this talented artist recorded! Thank you for it all!

    Dinorah and her flying guitar
    My first introduction to Dinorah was when she was performing one night at Mayahuel. Her sultry velvety captivating voice is what sets her apart and also she could play a mean guitar. So when I was planning my parents 40th wedding anniversary I could think of no one better to provide the entertainment for that special occasion! Whenever you add live music to any event it just makes it that more memorable. I compare her to someone that should be performing at some big venue like bottle rock or the Grammys, but she still hasn't been discovered so you could still afford her while you can before she hits the big time and be able to say, yeah she performed at my parents wedding anniversary one time!!! Thank you for everything I hope to book you again soon !!

    Dinorah and Crosswinds always deliver!
    I have had the pleasure of working with Dinorah for many different kinds of shows. She and Crosswinds always deliver crowd pleasing performances. Her music is fun and heartfelt! Her vibe is always so positive and their grooves never fail to get everyone dancing. I've done shows with her in cabaret settings such as the Penthouse at the historic Elk's Tower in Sacramento, or as a outdoor act performing at the Sacramento Zoo's music series, or in nightclubs like Harlow's where they participated in a 100th birthday tribute to Frank Sinatra. The band can take any song and make it their own, infusing each with their distinct Latin sound. This is truly a top-notch act that can be counted on to draw a good crowd and deliver a festive, family-friendly show! - Jerry Perry, Sacramento promoter, Executive Director of Chalk It Up!

    Crosswinds… A must see band!
    I have known Dinorah and her group Crosswinds for several years now. As the chairman of the board of the Sacramento Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, one of my responsibilities is to find local talent for our various events. We have hired Crosswinds to play at one of our major events and all I can say is WOW! They exceeded our expectations and they have a great variety of music that definitely satisfied our crowd. Oh by the way did I also mention they are very professional as well?

    Mike, Thank you so much for your review, I can't wait for September's show!!

  • Robert O. Feb 26, 2013
    I have done two symphony orchestra concerts with her, and she was terrific in both. The audiences loved her, she is very easy to work with, and is a great performer. If I hadn't had her twice within three years, something I never do, I'd hire her again.

    Bob, thank you so much for your review, I miss you!
