Justin Diaz has been a musician for over a decade. He is the dedicated guitarist at all of the elopements we do at Carneros Resort & Spa! He's a true professional with a warm personality and always provides the perfect ambiance for couples' ceremonies/receptions.
Justin's favorite part about his job is, "Lots of factors; the capability to be part of client’s special life moments, to always be in new/beautiful venues and especially getting to provide quality music that means a lot to people." Even with all of these amazing things, we asked Justin to give us something he wants couples to know about his line of work! He replied, "There is so much more that goes into providing high-quality music than just being a “good” musician. It’s knowing how to read the vibe of the whole group, how to mix all the sound equipment properly, and that it’s a great investment because there’s a huge visceral difference between being simply sung AT by speakers than being sung TO by a human (me) 😄"
We asked Justin from his perspective what the main differences were between live musicians and DJs to which he responded, "A live musician can: - Read the group and immediately change the dynamics of the music based on the ebb and flow of the couple’s guests. - Arrange/play songs in a customized way for the processional, bridal walk down, first dance, etc. - Provide a more relaxed/memorable atmosphere in contrast to a DJs capacity to get everybody dancing and make that bass slap."
Justin is loved by many, clients and vendors alike - enjoy one of his raving reviews below!
Real Vendor Review
“As a wedding and event planner, having the best vendors on your team is key. Justin is at the top of my preferred vendor list. He is an absolute joy to work with and he's unbelievably talented! He's kind, cool, easygoing, so skilled in his craft, and he's organized from contract to execution of the event. Every time a client books Justin, I get a huge smile on my face because I know the music element of their special event will be a glowing success!”
