Rick Arroyo's band was FABULOUS!! Our group really enjoyed the Havana Nights themed reception and dinner. Rick's band added the ambiance and was the perfect addition to making this event a total hit. For the dinner we had two of the musicians play during the meal and they were awesome. I highly recommend this band for their professionalism, their talent and their likeability :) Thanks Rick!!
