  • Raquel and her band were excellent! Raquel is an amazing singer. Raquel worked with me on the choice of music to be sung and met my needs with the selection of Spanish and English song choices. My guests were enjoying the music and were dancing and commenting on how much fun they were having. I would recommend Raquel to anyone that wants to make their wedding or any event a hit! Thank you so much Raquel! We had a joyous and memories to last a lifetime! Gratefully yours, Donnamarie

  • Wedding September 6th 2014 at Rosewood Sandhill Robert and I hired Raquel and her Band for our Wedding Reception in September…and we couldn’t have picked a more perfect artist. Raquel was amazing and exceeded our expectations. For our party, we chose Bossa Nova and Latin Jazz…which she nailed. Raquel is a true professional with a pitch perfect sensual voice and a warm elegant style. Her Band is equally talented with amazing instrumentals and guitar and together they made perfect music for a perfect evening. We received endless praise about Raquel from guests and staff alike. Among Bay Area Performers, she is truly a top notch first class talent and we plan to attend her public performances in the future. She’s just that good. Thank you Raquel, for being part of our day and making it so special. Your fans, Marc and Robert, San Francisco

  • Raquel and her band did an amazing job at our wedding! They played all of the songs we asked for -- including ones they had never played before -- and raquel played a couple songs that she had specifically written for weddings which were beautiful. Everyone raved about the band! Highly recommend her!

    Hi Heather :-) Thanks for your great feedback! Very nice of you. I totally enjoyed performing at your wedding day, and thanks for appreciating the song I wrote called "I Do". I was so happy that you were able to dance to it. :-) Congratulations again!

  • Raquel and her lovely group provided a sophisticated sound for the wedding I planned on May 31, 2014. Not only the guests, but vendors as well, commented on the elegance of her performance and quality of sound. I would definitely recommend her and plan on adding the group to my own vendor's list.

    Hi Denise, very sweet of you. :-) I remember the crowd was enjoying our music even the bartenders behind us were smiling and swaying a little bit. That was fun! Heather and her hubby were so sweet -- they talked to us and gave us very nice compliments. :-) I hope we'll work together again in the near future, Denise!

  • Our company hired Raquel and her band for our holiday party 2 straight years in a row, and that’s because she and the band are fantastic and very talented! She has a great voice and very charismatic – she even got us up and dancing! (I mentioned to her beforehand not to take offense if no one dances as our small group tend to “chat’ and catch up at these parties). She definitely listened to our needs and tailor the song selections accordingly. She’s also responsive and very professional, truly a pleasure to work with!

    Thanks so much, Michelle! I hope to be of service again this 2014 for the third time. You and Broadmark employees are such fun to be with. I enjoyed your parties :-) Hope to see you again!

  • My husband and I hired Raquel and her band to play for a dinner party after our wedding reception in October. My husband was raised in Brazil and I knew that it would be a special treat to have bossa nova (and other latin jazz) for him and his family incorporated into the evening. One of our guests was personal friends with Jobim so we wanted someone that our guests would really appreciate. We hadn't seen Raquel perform live and so were simply going off of her referrals and a few video clips we found online. I must say that I am so grateful that we hired Raquel. She and her band raised the caliber of our celebration and most of our guests thanked us afterward for the "gift" of her music for the evening. Our friend that had known Jobim (composer of "the girl from impanema") told Raquel that he loved her music and that Jobim himself would have appreciated her performance of his music. We were not sure if our guests would dance much that night but Raquel's music lifts you ou... Read more

    Hey Marc and Robert, you two are superb! I still remember vividly how you two and your guests were dancing and enjoying our music. I'm glad I sang The Girl from Ipanema that night. :-) Enjoy your official togetherness! Love -- Raq :-)

  • July 10, 2013 Raquel and her band are amazing! I am an event coordinator at The Winery SF and I had a pleasure of listening to them at one of my weddings. Raquel has an amazing voice and is very bubbly and easy to work with. If your looking for a great band with a variety of genres that will get your guests on the dance floor Raquel and her band are definitely it!

  • While searching for a band for our wedding, we went to hear Raquel play and immediately loved her classy & elegant sound. We knew she would bring exactly the energy we were looking for to our reception so we booked her on the spot. She was a joy to work with. She was very flexible and offered several instrument/band options to meet our budget. She also worked with us to ensure that the song selection was to our liking, although that was easy since we love her sound. On the big day Raquel and the band were perfect professionals, played great music that had the dance floor full, and didn't sweat that we were a bit behind schedule in the program. I would recommend Raquel to anyone looking for classic big band and latin jazz!

  • I have been a big follower of Raquel's music since 2005, I had finally caught up with her in 2013 and found out she is still the best Filipino & Latin salsa local bay area band out there and still making a big name for herself and the band. My wife and I decided to hire her and her musically vocally talented team to cater to our wedding, which made it even more memorable being of Filipino decent an my wife being 1/2 Italian & 1/2 Costa Rican. Raquel & her band sang & performed Latin & Filipino music throughout the reception, she also join me for a little salsa dance session. On top of that she sang beautiful traditional Filipino wedding song for me & my wife which made it even more memorable night for us. If you ever get the opportunity to hear about them playing anywhere here in the Bay area make sure to check them out and make sure to wear your dancing shoes that night cause Raquel & her band will have you dancing the night away with there sexy sultry jazzy sounds! I recommend if... Read more
