Authentic Native American Music and Dance
Nino Reyes and his Native American performers provide authentic cultural entertainment while their music and dance preserves our precious American heritage. These artists are available for many types of events, and often perform at public and private schools, performing arts centers, theaters, multi-cultural and folk festivals, fairs, museums, corporate events, weddings, and parks.
“Nino was beyond amazing! He made the whole night so special for all of us. He wasn’t just a hired person for our wedding. He became family. I have no words to say how wonderful he really was. Without him it would certainly not have been the amazing event it turned out to be. Our wedding ceremony was in the lobby of the busy Waldorf Astoria by the 800 year old Grand Fireplace. It was a special spot, but Nino’s incredible music echoed through the entire hotel and made everyone stop, listen and watch. The second he began playing it was pure magic. Seriously he was THAT incredible!“ – Dorothy Mifflin, Bride, Park City, UT
“The dancers were amazing and everyone enjoyed them a lot. They ranked 20 out of 10 on our scale.“ – Anthony Perez, Wedding, South Jordan, UT
“He was awesome! We were MORE than impressed!! I plan to call on them in a year or two and open it up to the community :-). Everyone loved it!“ – Megan Brubaker, Bride, Escalante, UT
“The Native American Hoop, Jingle, and Fancy dance group was awesome. Seriously amazing. They performed at the Twin Pine Casino & Hotel Indian Days Celebration and were a wonderful addition to the event. They are very professional and some of the nicest people. Green Light Booking was able to accommodate the last minute request and booking. Highly recommend Green Light and the Native American Performers. I will call Green Light tomorrow to discuss potentially booking them again next year.” – Kyle Lewis, Twin Pine Casino, Middletown, CA
