Testimonials

"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."

"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."
