HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the "Son's of Montebello"... MONTEBELLO's Big Band Machine-THE WISEGUYS and, to every WISEGUY! I usually keep it short here on FB...but today I have to make an exception. I've been a Wiseguy for more than half my life now. I always have the best seat in the house...from behind my drum set!! 29 yrs ago this month...during my winter break as a Sophomore at MHS back in '89...I was at home bored. I called my band teacher Mr. Larry Covellone aka-Mr.C at home to see if Robert Villalobos, my Lil Bro Frank Barajas, and some of our MOB (Mighty Oiler Band) friends could borrow instruments from the band room at Montebello High School.. Mr. C said YES and, he was nice enough to come open up the band room during winter break for us to get the instruments we needed to "Jam". The rest is history (and...it also took hard work and dedication from every guy and gal that's been and is in the band). Through the yrs. The WISEGUYS and I have literally grown up together. They have been there for me, and we have been there for each other. Through good, the bad, and the ugly. We've been to each other's Birthdays, Graduations, Weddings, birth our kids, baptism, when we lost a loved one and even when one of us is sick. Make no mistake about it, We will be there for each other. One thing I can always count on
...no matter how hot or cold the weather is, toothache, flu, stomach ache, fever or not....when the band hits the stage...you won't know our aches, pains or troubles...because we are there to make you forget yours...The WISEGUYS give 100%, NO MATTER WHAT!! To all The Wiseguys past and present...THANK YOU for being the soundtrack to my life for the past 29yrs! "Once a Wiseguy, always a Wiseguy"!!! SALUD...to another 29yrs! LET'S DO THIS!!!

After 28 Shows in just a little over 2 months... I'm proud of my boys (The Wiseguys and our crew)! Inspite of having to sacrifice their own Family time, hanging out with Friends, wear a suit in the heat, performing the same day they had surgeries, toothaches, fevers, having day jobs and/or going to school and having to still perform in the evening. Every evening the guys hit the stage and they gave 100% and are PROUD to claim we are from MONTEBELLO!!! Thank you all who attended our shows, reposted our invites and who have always showed us love. Its been a great Summer!! We are taking a small break but are coming back with new shows and tunes. We hope to see you at the next show. THANK YOU & GOD BLESS YOU ALL. Your pals, The Wiseguys Big Band Machine. ... See MoreSee Less
