      I am using David Flores for my wedding next weekend. He has been great so far and came recommended by the Sheraton Hacienda del Mar. He is a traditional Classic Spanish guitarist---so not a lot of contemportary music. He is $250 an hour with a minimum of two hours. So, he is playing our ceremony on the beach and for an hour at our cocktail reception.

        Sounds like you got a deal. We're paying $450 and only getting one hour.

          Does David Flores have a website?

            I don't think he has a website, but David's email is
            davidflov@hotmail.com

            He is a little slow initially at email, but he will send you a list of songs to pick from and also samples of his music. I didn't know a lot of the songs that he sent (not that familiar with traditional Spanish guitar) but I just went to itunes and put the names or composers in and almost all of them came up so that I could listen and then decide what I wanted.

              Thanks, Ashley. The Hilton (supposedly) has already booked Alonso Aquire for us. I've actually heard him before and he's great, but I'm having a little trouble getting past $450 an hour, plus $50 tax (with actually 45 min. of playing time), when David F. is only $250/hr. I'm going to contact the Hilton and see if I can do a little negotiating. If you're interested in the Canon D song and wondering what it would sound like by a solo guitarist, get on You Tube. You'll find a few on there that are actually pretty good.
