"La Folia Chamber Ensemble exceeded our expectations in talent and professionalism.  I am a true believer that you get what you pay for and these musicians did not disappoint.  They accommodated all requests from myself ans well as our guests for my parents' 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration.  The combination of Cello, Violin, Classical Guitar, and Flute was EXACTLY the sound that I was searching for.  My parents and our guests have continued to express their gratituded and all mention their music as a highlight of the evening.  I would wldcome any opportunity to procure their talents for another occasion.  This group is FIVE STAR in my book!"

What a find! La Folia brought magic to our wedding day! Their music just lifted the outdoor ceremony we had! They were impeccably dressed! Wonderful experience overall! Thanks, La Folia!

La Folia Chamber Ensemble, truly a class act. They looked and sounded great. They added so much grace and beauty to our ceremony. I am so happy that my husband found them. Every time I emailed Jerry, he was very quick to respond and very attentive to changes and questions that I had.  They were a fantastic choice and great value.
 
For any Bride and Groom reading this endorsement: I am Rev. Michael, and over the past decade I have Officiated thousands of Wedding Ceremonies, and without a doubt the most memorable and enjoyable Ceremony I ever Officiated used the La Folia Chamber Ensemble. Versus disk jockeys and string quartets, they outshine them all. They offer all types of music from rock to swing. After the Ceremony, I heard so many compliments from the guests as to what a treat it was not to have the typical disk jockey music. The Bride also told me how Jerry gave she and her husband to be so many tips and guidance to make their Ceremony an event to remember. Jerry and his ensemble exude the touch of professionalism that I rarely, if ever, encounter. You would be remiss in not at least calling Jerry to find out for yourself.

dont have a bad thing to say about them--lovely! added a very pretty sound to my ceremony and reception, just got a compliment on how good they were the other day--6 weeks after the wedding! also, lots of different musical styles to choose from or you can pick your own... they have a wide range. would definitely recommend!

Jerry and La Folia did our ceremony and cocktail hour music. We chose the duet-classical guitar and violin. The sound was gorgeous and was very affordable. He was wonderful to work with and very easy to get in touch with. There was a piece of music I was really set on walking to and after we went back and forth and I sent him the snippet I had-he managed to find the whole piece and was able to play it for me. I found him to be great vendor and very accomodating. I totally recommend him for any function!

We opted for a guitar solo before and during the ceremony. Jerry was awesome. His music was beautiful and everyone loved it.

La Folia was absolutely amazing! They sounded so beautiful and brought such an essence to the ceremony and cocktail hour, they are truly beyond description. We thank La Folia so much for a beautiful wedding.

Wonderful job!

We had the guitar and violin duo from La Folia Ensemble for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, and they really added a classic and elegant touch to our big day. Jerry was always very responsive to phone calls and e-mails, and was a pleasure to work with. We had a couple specific requests which they played beautifully, and their rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World by IZ sounded fantastic!! The rest of the time they chose what music to play, and their selections were right on and were just beautiful. I still can't believe how affordable they were given the quality of their performance. Highly recommended!!
 
EXCELLENT!!! Very professional and did exactly what I asked. HIGHLY recommended.

LA Folia string quartet played music at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour last week and I cannot recommend them enough, they were just amazing!! The music was so beautiful and they were very accomodating with our song choices. They made our day truely amazing.

They were very professional and communication leading up to the big day was great.

My husband and I were very pleased with the music provided by La Folia. We had the string trio (guitar, violin, flute) play at our ceremony and cocktail hour. We really liked the live music to walk down the aisle to. They played the songs that I wanted beautifully. Also, our guests enjoyed the music at cocktail hour.

We shortlisted guitar solo before and during the ceremony as my husband and I love guitar. Jerry was as usual very good at his music. It was truly a memorable moment.

Jerry Acosta, of La Folia Chamber Ensemble did our ceremony music and the trio was amazing! I didn’t have any communication problems with Mr. Acosta, when I would leave a message, I would hear back from him with in 24hrs if not sooner. I asked him if I could walk to Enya – Only Time, he was not familiar with the song so he took the time to learn it for me at NO extra cost. I found the LaFolia Chamber to be experienced with a professional and beautiful sound. Also, they were very affordable :)
