 "The fun evening began with the Mesquite Café Blues Band, featuring Linda and Paul Villanueva, playing a medley of patriotic songs. A solo highlight of the Star-Spangled Banner played by Paul on his electric guitar, and a beautiful rendition of “America” sung by Linda, were both a real treat. Then they started with the dance music and attendees headed to the dance floor."

- Quote by Bobbie Green

"The three performers are completely committed to their performance and are obviously doing what they love. They know how to rock, and they know how to move a crowd."

-Quote by The Progress News 

"There are people who, no matter what mood you’re in, always make you smile. Paul and Linda Villanueva are two such people. While they may play the blues, they give you quite the opposite. The Villanuevas are warm, positive, upbeat and real friends to the community."
