"The Blanton Museum of Art was very fortunate to have Paula Maya and her band play at our B scene: Bossa Nova event. In addition to being excellent musicians, they were also fantastic to work with and their sound was absolutely perfect for our theme. I would highly recommend them and hope to work with them again soon."
