New York Times (Anthony Tomassini)

“Perhaps the most emotionally resonating part of the entire concert was the solo performance of Andrea Casarrubios’ “SEVEN”….Mesa’s rendition was greeted by a standing ovation from the Madison faithful, proving to be among the standout performances of the night.”

The Badger Herald

“…they had the audience eating out of their hands from the moment they walked on stage to the very last note.  [Thomas and Ilya] were our favorite performers to have at the Wildflower Festival.”
