We first heard Dinorah sing in a local Mexican restaurant on a Sunday afternoon. It was just Dino and her guitar. She was there to provide background music and "ambiance," but after her first song, she had our complete attention. We needed a musician for a party we were hosting and asked her about her availability. She said she would love to provide solo background music for our dinner and offered that she had a band (Crosswinds) that could provide music for dancing after dinner. We "auditioned" the band for our party at the Fugu Lounge, and knew immediately that they were right for us. They can play everything from classic 80s rock to contemporary tunes to salsa and a lot of more traditional Latin music. Their song list is extensive, and they were even willing to learn and perform a special song for our party. Dino's voice is incredible...powerful and expressive, sassy and rich, confident and spontaneous. She is impressively talented and very beautiful. It is fun to watch the band back her up and support her unique star quality. They clearly enjoy performing together and combine to make a great sound. All of them are excellent musicians in their own right. So, obviously, we hired Dinorah and Crosswinds to play at our dance party. People danced and loved the event...many asked us, "Where did you find this band? They are awesome!" I recommend them wholeheartedly. Since our party in July, we have been able to get over to the Fugu Lounge on several other occasions to see our charming new friend, Dino, perform. We are never disappointed.Feb 23, 2013Dinorah's Entertainment's reply
Thank you Anita, from the bottom of my heart!!
This is a kick ass band and the lead singer, Dinorah, is simply fantastic. Book this band for any party and your guests will go wild. FIVE STAR!!!!!!Jul 17, 2013VerifiedDinorah's Entertainment's reply
Thank you Ernie!!!
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?Jan 11, 2017
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!Jan 12, 2017
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.Feb 26, 2013Dinorah's Entertainment's reply
Bob, thank you so much for your review, I miss you!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Getting to understand exactly what he/she is looking for on a performer. I like to cover very detail about their wishes on music and make sure that they were understood.
