Introduction: The musician that blows away your guests and personalizes your event. I didn't come up with that--it's what clients tell me 99% of the time. 🙏PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTACTING ME👉 My minimum fee is $500 for a solo performance. If your budget matches, I would love to put a custom quote together for your special event. Whether it's a wedding, dinner party, cocktail hour or holiday get-together, you can be assured that your event will be enhanced with beautiful guitar music customized just for your event. I provide a broad palette of sounds from Latin America, Spain, the popular realm and beyond. My repertoire includes classical and flamenco guitar favorites, songs by the Gypsy Kings and Santana, Beatles, bossa novas, boleros, famous movie themes, jazz standards and various arrangements of current and older pop songs that leave guests dazzled and pleased. I can also take up to 3 song requests. My training in a diverse group of styles including classical, Latin, flamenco, jazz and rock have left me uniquely qualified as a performer. It has allowed me to share the stage with a diverse group of notable musicians and international pop stars such as Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Little Anthony and the Imperials and Grammy winner Nestor Torres as well as national tours with the Emmy Award winning guitarist Benise. I have also performed at many high profile weddings, award ceremonies, dinners and private parties for such political luminaries as former US Presidents, Senators, and Supreme Court Justices and A-list celebrities. Corporate clients include: Microsoft Latin America, Target, Capital One Bank, Ted Talks, The World Bank, League of Latin American Citizens (LULAC), The Four Seasons Hotels, Hyundai Hope- on- Wheels, The Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI), The U.S. Coast Guard, The Federal Reserve, Children's Hospital, Hispanic American Organization (HAO), Sherwin-Williams, the Rosewood Miramar, Paramount Pictures, DC United FC, and The Ritz-Carlton. I also offer online guitar lessons and would be happy to teach you to play guitar the way you've always wanted to. I've been teaching for over 2 decades and have taught hundreds of people various styles including jazz, classical and flamenco as well as showing them how to play scorching rock solos! Please contact me for rates--the first trial lesson is free.

Amilcar was a hit! His music beautifully complimented my sister's outdoor wedding in Echo Park! We received compliment after complement after the ceremony. He played a very nice blend of classical and contemporary, from Suite No. 1 to Stairway to Heaven. He is definitely a master at his craft. Further, he was a pleasure to work with, fluid communicator, and accommodating with requests. Highly recommended! Thank you Amilcar!

Amilcar - was great for my wife's birthday. He played great music and was very professional. He went above and beyond with taking request and keeping to the theme. Will definitely be using him again.
