Duo - Spanish Guitars with optional Marimba

David Aman or Miguel Garza - Guitar
Toro Flores - Guitar 
As far as duets go, there is no better combination of sounds than two Spanish guitars. The Spanish guitar evokes many different moods from the classical stylings of Adres Segovia, to the sensous sounds of flamenco music, to the gypsy jazz sounds of Paris. The classical guitar truly creates a world wide feast for the senses. Add a touch of American jazz, a drizzle of Brazilian flair, and world class pop standards for good measure and you have a duet that your clients will remember for decades to come. Covered artists include the Gypsy Kings, Chick Corea, Duke Ellington, and of course, Tom Jobim among many.

There are many guitar duos to choose from, however, this duet guarantees our clients peace of mind that they will have uncompromised sound quality
with unmatched professional polish. The Duo has performed at all of San Antonio's finest hotels, restaurants, catering facilities, etc. Toro, David Aman, and Miguel Garza have been playing together professionally for ten years.

Hot Sauce

David Aman - Guitar
Miguel Garza - Guitar
Robert Garcia - Guitar
Toro Flores - Marimba Guitar
Joe Caploe - Percussion  Marimba

This world class ensemble, usually a trio, is a step up from our much loved duet. Toro plays the marimba as well as guitar which gives us a larger tonal palette. Visually, marimba performance is something to behold, and Toro arguably does it better than anyone on the planet.
Joe Caploe is certainly one of the best percussionists available, but he is also a world class vibraphonist! Toro and Joe have been playing together professionally for four years and have created a close working relationship as multi-instrumentalist mallet players. As far as value goes, this your best bet. A world music orchestra at its finest with only three people.
The Epic Trio

Mark Little - Keys
Kory Cook - Drumset
Toro - Guitar Vibraphone Marimba MalletKat

The marimba, congas, and spanish guitar are very old and ancient instruments. The acoustical purity is a hallmark of the Wooden Trio's sound. For a more modern and varied timbre, the vibraphone and the electric guitar make for a perfect Toro alternative. The platinum colored vibraphone is made of metal and the sound is indescribable. One client commented after a show that this instrument is the MOST ELEGANT of all JAZZ instruments. The electric guitar is the mainstay guitar instrument in jazz music. And Toro gives it a singing quality that the acoustic guitar cannot accomplish. Tonally the electric guitar is much more flexible than than one sounded spanish guitar. Multi-instrumentalist Toro Flores and drummer Kory Cook are teamed with Mark Little on piano and organ. Toro plays two instruments (sometimes at the same time). This ensemble evokes a fusion of musical styles. Fresh and modern. Most of these instruments were invented in the 20th century.
