"To meet a couple with 7 children is shocking but then to learn that every single member of that family is musically talented and together they make up a band that travels the Midwest entertaining thousands... that takes the shock to another level! That's the story of Cielito Lindo, one of Chicagos very own. Cielito Lindo has been entertaining Chicago for the last 2 years from private parties to a Bulls game. This family of 9 has wowed anyone who listens to it's wonderful talent. "

"The whole family has impressive singing and musical abilities and they performed a really nicely balanced set that included traditional songs as well as familiar favorites such as La Bamba. They really had the audience dancing and moving and they grabbed the attention of people who were just passing by. I appreciated that they were so engaging with the audience and spoke to parents about the importance of exploring the arts at home and how it's impacted their family. Aside from their really fun and memorable musical performance, the whole family was just great to work with. I would very enthusiastically welcome them back for a return performance!"
