Delighting brides and grooms all over Texas with 36 unforgettable weddings just in the last two years! Recently returning from her knockout performance in Panama at the Boquete Jazz and Blues Festival and performing since 2001, Yelba and her cast of talented musicians have performed with and shared stages with world-renowned acts such as Hubert Laws, Oscar DeLeon, Vikki Carr, Deanna Bogart, Leon Blue, Shakura S'Aida, Jose Jose, Ray Wiley Hubbard, Willie Colon, Luis Enrique Mejia Godoy, India, Rick Braun, Kirk Whalum, Eddie Santiago, Puerto Rican Power, and many, many more. The professionalism she brings to music comes from her many years working as a Vice President for Fortune 500 corporations, her undergraduate degree from Texas A & M, and her MBA in Finance from the "other" University (UT).

When you deal with Yelba, you get well rehearsed, well dressed versatile musicians so that you can concentrate on other aspects of your event and leave the music to her. You also get the ONLY band in the Houston area that can perform Latin music with the same ease as American music. No other group can touch the versatility Yelba's band brings to your event, without the cost and necessity of adding additional members to the band.

Yelba owns two bands, her "Variety" band featuring the best high energy dance music for corporate functions, weddings and festivals, and "Latin Fire", a 6 piece Salsa band second to none. In both cases, the repertoire is wonderfully varied, and any mix of genres is fair game. Yelba's bands perform music ranging from Jazz, Top 40, Pop, Rock, R & B and even Disco, while entertaining and engaging her audiences with her ultra high energy and enthusiastic love for music. Yelba can even teach your guests to dance Merengue, Bachata and Salsa, or bring in dance instructors as part of her package! A celebration with Yelba assures your guests an evening of fun, laughter, and joy as she encourages all to dance, have fun and helps you create memories to cherish forever.

Past performances include the Houston International Festival, the Corpus Christi Texas Jazz Festival, the Paella Festival, Houston International Jazz Festival, The Katy Rice Harvest Festival, many Super Bowl XXXVIII events, Pre-Latin Grammy party for Univision at the renowned House of Blues and many more. Her travels have taken her to Peru performing at the upscale JazzZone, Nicaragua at Casa de Los Godoy, Panama for the Boquete Jazz and Blues Festival, Louisville Kentucky, Austin, Dallas, and San Antonio.

The sounds of Gloria Estefan, Marc Anthony, George Strait, Eydie Gorme, Eva Cassidy, Sade, Luis Miguel, Crystal Gayle, Jason Mraz, Michael Buble are al music to Yelba's ears, and she performs all and more. How varied can her performance be? She loves all music genres, including hits from Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Maroon Five, Outfield, Robin Thicke, Mana, Toto, Steely Dan, Celia Cruz, and can play most hits from these artists with finesse, energy and gusto!

Please contact her with specific details of our event so that Yelba can give you the best suited band for your party, and then forget about it!

Yelba's Variety Band was the HIT of our party. We could not have asked for better entertainment. The band was so much fun and brought incredible energy to the party. EVERYONE was on the dance floor. We had 3 attendees ask for their information to book for future events. I highly recommend Yelba for any event, party, celebration. I will most definitely be using her again :)

Yelba and her band were absolutely amazing! Everyone who attended the event adored them and I would definitely hire them again. They arrived early for setup and sound check and were all extremely nice and professional. They also thoroughly engaged the crowd and get everyone excited to be there! They played a wide variety of music that catered to everyone's taste. In addition, they were reasonably priced and very quick regarding communication and signing/returning documents. I cannot say enough about this band except HIRE THEM and you will NOT REGRET IT.

Yelba's Variety Band was excellent! They have great energy and presence and really know how to make a dance floor look too small. They were really wonderful and generous and I would strongly recommend them to anyone and everyone. We used them for our Organization's Gala at the Houstonian and definitely hope they will be able to play at next year's event!
