"For 30 years, Billy Mata has been entertaining audiences and winning awards with his ringing baritone. Add to that fiddle and pedal steel-guitar players of jaw-dropping skill and classic tunes, and you’ve got a Texas-sized slice of Western swing heaven."
Sacramento News Review
"I was at the Jubilee two years ago playing with the Zydeco Flames and was fortunate enough to have enough free time to be able to follow these guys all around the festival. Billy Mata and his boys were creating a storm of interest and energy every where they went. When you take a group of musicians of this caliber of talent and add a front man with a style that brings together the sophisticated swing of Nat Cole and mix it with the dusty soul of Oklahoma and Texas you have a concoction that brings a sense of joy and human contact that cannot be touched by todays technology generated so called music. I'll be back at the Jubilee with the Flames again this year and look forward to being their groupie yet one more time!!!
