Below are some of the reviews our entertainers have received.
"I just wanted to write and say thank you to you and all your crew for the great job you did for us at the Houston Children's Festival. I know this venue was quite tame and different for you and I appreciate your willingness to work with us on the show and revisions, the media, and all the Robo movement with street closures etc. It is really nice to work with people who take care of their business and who know what they are doing."

"I want to thank you for coming to the Athis Career Center and helping me see clearly... ...Your not the only one that was told you could not do anything. I have an Autism Spectrum Disorder, Ausburger Syndrome, and I can agree that I was told that I could never amount to any importance, but I Proved them wrong. go to this link to see a video I edited to prove that I did do something cool, even if it is not that important. Loved your comedy by the way. "

"Some singers play just enough of an instrument to accompany themselves, some great guitar players 'get by' as singers, and a few singer/musicians try their best to tell a good story. Chris Vallillo is the complete package...a haunting voice, a master at his instruments, and a stage presence that holds anyone of any age spellbound. Chris pulls off the nearly impossible task of making poetry of our heritage while maintaining the integrity of the original material. And in Chris's case, that material is the very stuff of which we are made...our history. I am so proud to be from a state that could produce such a consummate performer as Chris Vallillo.

"He was completely immersed in his subject matter, mastered from years of independent reading and by his painstaking creation of authentic-looking artifacts. He shared his vast knowledge and kept the adults and students spellbound. He revels in the gritty details of history...the glue that makes otherwise cold facts stick in our minds."
– Stuttgart, Germany
