"One sunny evening on a terrace overlooking the lovely grounds of Hanbury Manor, easy jazz notes flowed melodiously out of the conservatory - Camino Sonoro were in residence, creating an ambience which added so much warmth to
the good company of friends with whom we celebrated our wedding anniversary. Our guests and family were charmed by Hetty's commanding vocals, Miguel's languid guitar and Ronan's mellow saxophone. 'Girl from Ipanema' brought smiles to many faces, 'My baby just cares for me' was delivered with casual confidence, and later on, many of us delighted in recognising Hetty's lovely rendition of 'I wanna be like you' - from The Jungle Book! It was a very special evening for us, and my family and I are thrilled that Camino Sonoro captured the mood perfectly with their unique style of swing and Latin jazz. The trio are truly relaxed, adaptable and versatile. I have no hesitation in commending Camino Sonoro to anyone seeking the perfect musical complement to their special occasion."

I just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful performance last night. You sang and played beautifully, and you could see from her emotion how much it meant to Kate - especially the songs that you had so carefully prepared for her. Thank you! It was really rewarding. You were all delightful to work with! With best wishes, and I hope that I'll be able to hear Camino Sonoro again soon, Nick

Camino Sonoro - gorgeous in every way! They were so tight together and have such a wonderful fee - and they even let me sing a couple of numbers with them! So many guests commented on how fantastic they all were and how beautiful Hetty's voice is. Thank you Camino Sonoro! XXX

Love these guys. They were recommended by my daughter's singing teacher and were the icing on the cake. I loved their repertoire. Sleeky sultry smooth cool jazz played unobtrusively whilst we all basked in the sunshine. Hetty has a lovely range ably supported by Miguel on guitar and Stephanie on saxophone. I have no hesitation in recommending them.Wishing you every success !! 10/10

We hired Homerton college for a dinner venue and were lucky to have Camino Sonoro perform for our clients. From the beginning they were very professional to deal with and performed beautiful sets ideal as a background jazz music. Our guests were complimenting the group and especially Heather's singing voice. We had an international group and some of our Spanish customers loved Spanish songs. Definitely recommend! 10/10
