About Us


Hi Danny,
We had heard so many great things about Blue Rio before the wedding, and even with the bar set so high, they exceeded our expectations beyond belief! It's always difficult planning a wedding from out-of-state, but everyone inBlueRiowas so friendly and inviting that it seemed like we had known them forever. Danny was super willing (and flexible) to meet beforehand via video conference and coordinated with our wedding planner to make sure everything ran smoothly the day of (even with the rain!). On top of everything, they sounded amazing. We can't thank you enough for making our wedding so memorable!

Hi Danny,

I just want to drop a note with you and all the band members of how much positive feedback we received from our quests at our son Tony and Julia's wedding last Saturday. All of the responses and comments we received were very positive and most were to the effect of how nice it was to see and dance to such a diverse type of musical band.

I wanted to personally that you for all of your communications, cooperation and your flexibility in regards to the terms of our contract. Having experience promoting and organizing national musical acts perform, I can tell you that the Blue Rio band ranks up there with the best of them in terms of professionalism, organization, and performance. I was so pleased that we chose your Blue Rio band for the wedding.

Please feel free to use me as a reference for any future inquires by prospective clients.

Your friend

"Thank you so much for the wonderful performance you gave us on our send-off wedding reception on June 5, 2011.  We got a ton of compliments on how good you guys sounded, and how you could play anything and play it well.

My mom's friends said Claudia's voice was the best they had heard.

You made everyone happy with such a diverse play list.  The ladies could not stop dancing. 🙂

Thank you for being the utmost of professionals, from start to finish.  You communicated with me throughout all the planning and showed up reliably on time to set up for the event.

We are so glad we found you and chose you, and have you as our new friends."

We wanted our wedding to be remembered as a fantastic time and with your help that was accomplished.  Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!  We will be looking for you for our next function and will definitely recommend you to anyone that asks.

"I would like to thank Blue Rio for helping to make our annual Mr Amigo Presidential Ball a great success! The band played a wide variety of music, which pleased the varied age groups in attendance. We have received numerous compliments on the music from both our members and sponsors as well as Mr Amigo Jose Sulaiman himself. I was impressed with the professionalism of the performers, and would not hesitate to book the band again." 

- Eliseo Davila, Mr. Amigo Executive Board Member



 "When Blue Rio plays, you can expect a night full of fun-- lots of dancing, and music for everybody. It is common to see groups of girls or whole families on the dance floor. They play an ample selection of music. They are great!"

- Adela G. Garza, UTB Trustee



"Thanks for the great tunes at Halloween Extravaganza. We got great feedback from the crowd on your sound and variety of tunes.  We always recommend you to folks who ask about local bands, and we look forward to having you back on campus next year.  Buena suerte!"

"Anniversary Diamond Ball was a huge success in part due to Blue Rio’s high energy and variety of music.  Diamond Ball guests danced the night away and had a magnificent time.  Blue Rio is a professional entertainment group and with no doubt will produce a successful show for any occasion."

“WOW!  Super! Outstanding! I must admit that during my two years serving as Supreme Commander of the International Order of the Alhambra, traveling throughout the country, attending meetings, socials and being exposed to several entertaining groups, I must say, ‘The Blue Rio variety band is tough to match.’  During my visit to Brownsville, I had the pleasure of listening to a great variety of songs played by Blue Rio.  Further on, I had the opportunity to witness their professional mannerism displayed during their performance.  I rate their performance as top quality, outstanding, and they are a very talented young group.  I could hear and see from where I was the positive expressions of the audience. I might add: This group is awesome, they have a prosperous future.”

- George DeWinne Sr., Supreme Commander of International Order of Alhambra, San Antonio, Texas



"I have had the pleasure of being at two of your performances now and have to tell you that they were fantastic!  I have thoroughly enjoyed them!  You put on a great performance and the music you play is great!  The variety of music you play allows everyone no matter what type of music they like to just get up and dance!  I can’t wait until you play at my son’s wedding!  I recommend The Blue Rio Band every chance I get!"

- Linda Wolcott, Los Fresnos, Texas



"Talk about heavenly!  The Blue Rio band is absolutely the finest group of musicians found in the Rio Grande Valley.  Blue Rio played for one of our school functions and it was obvious the folks simply could not get enough of them.  As Principal, they asked me to allow them to extend their performance for an extra hour, regardless of the price.  Of course we allowed the extra playing time, much to the overwhelming approval of all those present.  Definitely this band will be asked to play for us more often through the years.  Thanks, Blue Rio!

- John Barrera, Principal, St. Mary's Catholic School



"Blue Rio was well received at St. Mary's Fall Festival.  I recommended that they play at the Mr. Amigo Awards Night, and they were a hit!  We couldn't get enough of their music, so they were paid to play longer!  Blue Rio is a variety band that knows what people like to hear.  My favorite song they play is "Volare" from the Gypsy Kings Medley -- one you can dance with gusto.  Can't go wrong with Blue Rio!"
