"If you closed your eyes you would have thought it was Stevie Ray himself." - Jolene Morgan
"Great show. Best $10 I have ever spent. I seen lots of groups and by far this was the best I have ever seen."
- Cindy Reynolds
"Awesome concert!! We were entranced by the genius of your playing, Rafael! Charmed by the love-loyalty of Emmylou's bass, and blown away by the brilliance of the drummer who was loving every moment following your passionate lead. What a gift you all are to the Mineola community. Surely the music angels and Stevie Ray Vaughan are rejoicing in the majesty of your performance."
- Janice Sherertz
"I knew that Rafael was the real deal. My first time to see Emmylou - WOW! What a dynamic duo! Thanks for the great show. And got to enjoy your blues students on top of it. Thanks!"
- Russell Wright from T-Bone Walker Blues Festival
"I've known for awhile that Rafael Espinoza was a great guitarist BUT Saturday night honoring Stevie Ray Vaughn absolutely blew me away! Added to his immense talent was his darling talented wife Emmylou and a remarkable drummer Curtis Lane. The House was definitely Rockin'! If you missed the educational show you have a chance to be wowed Thursday night. You don't want to miss it!"
