David Flores (guitar)

Recommended Posts

Hi girls,

 

DJ Antares recommended me a classical guitar player and when I looked at his website it looks like he is a DJ too. His name is David Flores Velasquez.

 

www.avlsystems.com.mx

 

I am going to book him to play guitar at my ceremony and cocktail hour (the demos on his website sound great!) at $250/hr.

 

I am going to go with DJ Antares for my DJ, since he is friends with David, and David didn't want to steal Antares' business or anything.

 

His contact info is on his website.

 

This rate is much cheaper than the $375 I have seen quoted from several wedding planners. If you use him, please tell him that Janet Daly (bride in November at Cabo Surf Hotel) referred you. Thanks!!

Hi Janet,

 

 

 

How did you get ahold of David Flores? I also love the way his guitar music sounds, and have tried both emailing and calling him about playing for my ceremony on August 19, but haven't heard back... And advice?

 

 

 

Thanks so much! And thanks for recommending him!

Hi Lauren,

 

 

 

You know, he hasn't emailed me back in a few weeks now - SO frustrating! I don't know why either? We talked about price, confirmed date, and I was just about to pay him a deposit and he disappeared....So, I am kinda stressing about it too. I guess better that he disappeared BEFORE I paid him, but still, I really want him to play at my wedding...

 

 

 

So, I'm really sorry, and I will keep you posted if I hear anything - will you make sure you post if you hear from him too? Thanks!!

 

 

 

Janet

Hey Janet!

 

 

 

I finally heard back from David Flores last night (after at least 2 weeks). He did apologize for the delay. All he told me was that he has my wedding date in his agenda . . . and to let him know if I need anything else. He didn't mention any kind of deposit or contract, which I thought was a little odd. Do you think this is his standard protocol, or do I just need to keep bugging him to make this deal more "official"?

 

 

 

Sometimes this whole international communication thing can be so frustrating!!!

 

 

 

I hope you've had some luck getting in contact with him.

 

 

 

Thanks for your help!

Hi Lauren, I also booked David Flores. He said the same thing - he doesn't do contracts, just puts you in his calendar. Makes me nervous too, but I'm just planning on following-up with him when I get to Mexico for the wedding. Nicole

Hi girls,

 

 

 

Just wanted to let you know that David Flores finally wrote me back today (which people kept saying he would do eventually, but it was good to hear from him anyway). Of course, he was totally nonchalant about it... he said:

 

 

 

"Hello Janet, dont worry you can write me all the times you need, and I have

 

the day in my calendar for you, so we dont have any problem for your

 

wedding, I hope to see you realy soon here in Cabo, and thank you very much

 

to choice my services."

 

 

 

So, I just hope all the people who are hiring him before November (my wedding month) are happy so I don't stress about it. I am going to try to meet with him in June when I am down there...I'll keep you all posted!

Has anyone hired AVL Systems as their DJ? I've been in contact with David Flores since June. He says we're booked, but I still have yet to see a song list or feel confident he'll show up at my wedding next month. Any feedback? I'm wondering if I should go another route at this point...

I totally understand your nervousness! What if you did this: bring an ipod and some $100-$150 ipod speakers with you as a backup plan? Worst case scenario, he doesn't show up and you have to get a friend to man the iPod that night?

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
