"No other band compares to the salsa-soulful and funky rhythms of Willie Villegas y Entre Amigos. A multifaceted individual, besides co-leading Entre Amigos, playing timbales and producing their albums, Willie hosts the cable TV show Salsa En La Calle. No newcomer to the US salsa scene, Willie has played with such luminaries as Joe Quijano, Joe Cuba, Eddie Palmieri, Frankie Ruiz, Lalo Rodríguez, Tito Puente, José Fajardo and Paquito Guzmán." - SOB's, New York City
