  • Daniel is a wonderful guitarist and helped us with the music we wanted for our son's ceremony. He was a pleasure to work with and was prompt in replying to our emails and phone calls.

  • The music of Daniel Fries set the tone for our recent wedding. Daniel and his musical team created an unforgettable ambiance for our special day! From the time guests entered the courtyard of our venue, through the processional and recessional, every piece was expertly played. Daniel continued to play during our cocktail reception – held outside in a grove of trees. Every guest commented on how beautiful the guitar selections were, particularly many of the original pieces, and how the music transported them to the Mediterranean – exactly the feeling we wanted to create!

  • Hiring Daniel Fries was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. My wife loves Flamenco guitar and after a bit of online research, we found Daniel. He was incredibly prompt and professional in his communication and was able work with our budget. He even sent samples for us to listen to and choose from. During our ceremony, instead of traditional or DJ music, Daniel played the most beautiful solo guitar music while everyone walked down the aisle. Then during cocktail hour, he was joined by his rhythm guitarist and they played AMAZING flamenco music. It was so beautiful, etherial, and most importantly, unique - many guests commented on how incredible they were. If you're looking for something memorable to include in your wedding, I would DEFINITELY suggest booking these guys!

  • A fantastic compliment to our wedding party, Daniel played as part of a trio that fit snugly into the lively atmosphere and played with a wonderful flow of Latin influenced acoustic music to suite both the energy and the environment . These are top class musicians and many at the wedding would have paid good money to see them live. We had the privileged of enjoying a 2 hour plus set including relaxing ambient tunes and upbeat Latin dance numbers that made us dance. Great memories and I can highly recommend Daniel and co. Thanks guys !

  • Daniel Fries' duo really added to the ambiance of our ceremony and the outdoor portion of our reception. Everyone seemed to enjoy the music, which was beautiful, and we received numerous compliments afterwards. Daniel was a pleasure to coordinate with and the musicians were very professional throughout the set. Highly recommended.

  • I'm about to cry just writing this post because the ceremony music was just absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! We just got married last month and we hired Daniel for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Firstly, months before the wedding, I requested a song for him to learn as our processional. He did it, no problem. Then about a month before the wedding, I decided I wanted my own song for when I walked down the aisle. I sent him a couple samples of what I wanted, no sheet music and BOOM. No problem. Cut to the ceremony: I just absolutely died at how beautiful he sounded and it truly truly truly made the start to our wedding just magical. Words can't even begin to express. If you want your guests and yourself, even, to be wowed at an event, hire DANIEL!! He was responsive, professional, prompt and so incredibly flexible, and not to mention, ridiculously talented!!

  • Daniel and his group, Trio Paz, are wonderful and will make your event one to remember! They played for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour a couple of weeks ago and we could not have been happier! They gratuitously agreed to learn three songs for the ceremony, their renditions of which were beautiful. And their unique sound was the perfect backdrop to the cocktail hour. Daniel was also a pleasure to work with! He was extremely responsive, despite being the father of a newborn. Daniel, many many thanks from Nick and me for making our day so special!

  • Daniel Fries and his partner performed beautifully during my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. They were very open to playing anything and they gave us great suggestions. I'd recommend listening to some samples of their records to see if you like their music as much as we did. They were also very professional and punctual.

  • Trio Paz did a truly outstanding job playing at my outdoor garden wedding last summer. Not only did Daniel go above and beyond and willingly agree to learn three customized new songs for our wedding ceremony (one of which he even provided me the audio file for afterwards!) but they also brought an extra mic for us to use throughout the day at no extra charge, and accompanied us live for our first dance...guitars, drums and all! The Spanish guitar provided a classy accompaniment for our ceremony, and the lively, upbeat and cultural feel of the reception music had everyone smiling, laughing and feeling the spirit of love and joy all day. Daniel was great to work with. He was professional, punctual, organized, friendly, and really came through in every way. Every time I listen to Trio Paz's music now I am filled with so much happiness and priceless memories. Countless friends and family have commented over the months on how perfectly the music set the tone for the perfect wedding day. I a... Read more

  • Daniel Fries and his group played flamenco guitar for our ceremony at SF City Hall and it was magical! Their music sounded so beautiful in that space. During the planning stages, Daniel was super helpful and worked with us to pick out the best songs to play during the ceremony from his repertoire. Daniel also worked with us to provide unique music during our cocktail hour - we wanted 2 flamenco guitar players with a tabla player and he delivered! He found the perfect tabla player to complement his guitar style. Our guests loved the combination and the music set the mood for the rest of the evening. We highly recommend Daniel Fries!!

  • Daniel Fries was one of the best decisions we made during the course of setting up our wedding. During the month's leading up to the wedding, he was very responsive and enthusiastic about our event and was careful to listen and to consider all the details which we communicated. Our guests were touched by their ceremony music, and wow-ed by their cocktail reception performance. Which is exactly what we wanted! I would highly recommend him to anyone else!!

  • Daniel was AMAZING. His music is dreamy and I strongly recommend to have him play all night. I didn't want his luscious music to stop! He knew when to play a soft romantic song, and when to add a little spice. It was a decadent treat to have him play for us on our wedding day... and he far exceeded our expectations. So beautiful!!!! Thank you! Thank you! One of the smartest decisions I made was hiring him for our small intimate wedding reception. Also we downloaded all of Daniel's songs (on his website) to incorporate in our wedding video - too fantastic. :)

  • TRIO PAZ is an amazing Flamenco/Latin music band, and the perfect touch for any wedding. For our wedding, we wanted FUN, romantic, and just great music, and that’s exactly what we got… PLUS. They have an engaging stage presence! We can’t thank Daniel Fries enough, who was extremely responsive, flexible and professional. For the ceremony, we asked for specific songs to be played, and Daniel was always very positive and responsive (always responding same day). Several guests (including my dad and sister in-laws) were asking when Trio Paz was playing next. We can’t wait to see their next show. Michael Johnson, a satisfied Groom.
