We had a great experience with Omar playing at our company Christmas party. He is an excellent performer.
Omar Villanueva and his band were very professional. This was the third time we hired them. Here is a link to the events page in which they performed... http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.355564804501410.85132.168473383210554&type=1They showed up on time, took requests from guests and set up and cleaned up quickly. I would recommend the band or even Omar Villanueva himself for any event you are planning. -Bobby Beals, Owner @ Beals & Abbate Fine Artwww.bealsandabbate.com
