"My husband and I hired Ricardo and his band for our September 2008 wedding! We wanted a band that could represent my husbands latin heritage and provide some energy to the party! Ricardo and his band were awesome and so versatile! They got everyone off their feet at our wedding and catered to many different genres and ages. They played a wide variety of jazz and uptempo music. We thoroughly enjoyed the Ricardo Pena band and our guests were dancing all night long!"

Heather de Gortari - Bride and Catering manager at the Brown Palace

“If you ever need a recommendation or a reference, we'd be happy to endorse you. Please thank all of the band members for their wonderful and memorable music — it just simply made the whole reception extra special."”

Melissa - Bride

"I saw your band playing boleros and Cuban Son. The band sounds great! Great harmonies! It's clean, authentic to the style but not stuck in the past. I don't think there is anyone else in Colorado that does that as well as you guys!"

Arturo Gomez (Music director) - KUVO

"Peña is a wonder on lead guitar, piano/keyboards and vocals."
