I am so glad that we hired your group, San Juan Jam, to provide the music for the Get-together-Party that we held on April 25, 2008 jointly with the members of the Puerto Rico Branch of The International Wine & Food Society.
It was not an easy task to perform for such a diverse group of people that included English speaking guests, as well as our Puerto Rican visiting friends. Everyone was impressed with your extensive repertoire that includes standards and current hits, both in English and Spanish. Your flexibility to accommodate the desires of the audience makes your group ideal for any type of party.
I believe that your job is much easier by having Shekinah Rodriguez and Nelson Vega as part of your group. They are very accomplished musicians, and crowd pleasers. You are fortunate to have them part of your group.
Thanks for contributing to the success of our party!!!

Dear Cucho and the rest of your great talented band:
Thank you so very much for making Isabel's wedding so very special.
You are a group of extremely talented musicians that made our occasion unique: You blended the Cuban and American cultures and everyone was able to enjoy the music and our time together. Everyone was asking where we found you. They loved the singing of the boleros in the garden and the dancing music in the reception hall. Your young singer has the heart of a jazz musician of old, her lovely voice still resonates in my heart.
Thank you very much,
Carmen Lourdes and Roberto Amaya

Thank you for providing the music for our Summer Picnic on September 21, 2008. This is the second time this year that your group entertains one of our events, and like the last time, it was outstanding.
I would not hesitate to recommend San Juan Jam for any kind of party. Bravo for San Juan Jam!!!

Comments from attendees of a Zumba Party at the Rockingham Ballroom in Exeter, New Hampshire:
By the way, San Juan Jam totally rock!!! The music was fantastic!!!!! We had so much fun showing off our Latin moves, and everybody looked great on the dance floor!
San Juan Jam was exceptional!
What an awesome holiday party! The band was great. If you had told me 6 months ago I would have been out there dancing the salsa I would have never believed it. I hope we do it again.
The party was a blast! Your family is wonderful and San Juan Jam was fantastic!
The party was fantastic. The music was excellent.

Thank you so much for another wonderful performance at Parc at Piedmont. You and Shekinah work well together, sound fantastic and are enjoyable to work with.
Our Residents enjoy the two of you because you offer different music than they normally experience from our other entertainers. We look forward to seeing you again in May 09 for the Opening of our Pool party.
Thank you very much.

Thank you so much for helping us surprise my wife, Eva, on her birthday, by providing the music for a very private and intimate party. You and Nelson were fantastic. The music you two produced was robust, lively, passionate and moving ; but more then that, having you two there was like having extended family helping us celebrate with music, music that Eva grew up with and loves. The fact that Eva danced and sang the entire time you were playing, shows how much she enjoyed the evening with your music. Nelson bringing his cuatro added a wonderful dimension to the music and made us all feel like we were transported back to Puerto Rico for the evening.
Again, Thank you so much. You helped make this birthday a memorable one for Eva that she will cherish always.

You and your Band were so good at our daughter's wedding last weekend! Many of our Guests commented on how good our Band was. The three of you had a good variety of Latin Salsa and American Standards, and we were pleased that the crowd danced and enjoyed you so much. Even in the large space at King Plow, you projected well and held their attention. I would use you again and recommend you. Very impressive musicians! Thanks so much. We were more than satisified.

We just wanted to write to say how much we loved having you and your trio play at our wedding on Jan 9th! Mauricio and I had a magical evening... the songs were perfect. We had so much fun dancing with each other during our first dance and then later on at the reception as well, with all our family and friends.
Of course, we received many compliments on your band and the great salsa music! You are all so talented. I definitely recommended you to everyone who asked.
Thanks again for helping to make our "once in a lifetime event" so magical and fun. We are very grateful to have found you!
God's blessings to you and your families....
Nancy & Mauricio Talero :)

I contracted Mr. Cucho Garcia and his band to entertain guests for our fund raising event on March 20, 2010. It was a pleasure working with him from the start. He was very professional, organized and clear. He responded promptly to my requests and he was very punctual on the day of the event. Moreover, the music was excellent! His capacity to choose the melodies to play was fantastic. He was always aware of the audience and did a wonderful job of tempering the Latin music with the American music so that everyone felt included. I honestly recommend this group for any event. You won�t be disappointed--they are fantastic!

Your group "San Juan Jam" was amazing! Los Ninos Primero was elated with your music. You were able to play music that everyone loved. When the time was right you began playing Latino music that stole everyone�s heart. We could not have been happier. You are fabulous musicians and so flexible and easy to work with.

I want to thank you for the wonderful performance at my daughter's graduation dinner on May 22. You were superb! My guests loved you.
There was a perfect mix of Latino and American music, which suited the audience perfectly, young and old.
You were friendly and interactive with the guests taking requests and accommodating all of their needs.
Thank you so much!
I will definitely use your services again and recommend you to everyone.

You and your group were able to tap into the Panamanian culture of my wife and my own of Puerto Rico. You were able to play what I wanted using the suggestions that I made through the usb full of songs that I gave you. Perhaps I was a little controlling as to what I wanted but I felt like, being a music lover myself, and this being the only wedding reception I'm going to have, I wanted to have a lot of input. You allowed me to do that while at the same time having San Juan Jam add its own flair to the occasion. Most importantly though is how kind and honest you were to me, my wife, and my family through this whole wedding preparation.
I never once -doubted that the music was in good hands. Believe me, after having situations arise with the wedding cake, photographer, and groomsmen attire throughout the last couple weeks leading up to the wedding (some emergencies occurring the day prior) it was a welcome relief.
Finally, I know you guys did a great job based on the comments I heard from my friends who were there. They were blown away to say the least. The English speakers, Spanish speakers, everyone.... all I kept hearing were words like "tremendous", "outstanding", and "beautiful" when describing the job you and your group did during the Mass and the job San Juan Jam did at the reception.
Thanks a million. I will see you again at a Noche Bohemia soon.
