"Watching Ed create a swingin' samba groove at Seattle Center's World Rhythm Festival (with his loop pedal), followed by some stellar mallet playing on his marimba was absolutely fantastic"!

Jeff Busch (percussionist with 3x Grammy Award-winning singer Carlos Cascante and 3× Latin Grammy nominated pianist Jovino Santos Neto)

"Thank you so much for your fabulous performance at the Music on the Plaza Concert Series!  You sounded awesome!  Folks have been emailing me and stopping me in the hall complimenting me on my good taste in music.  You all really made me look good!"

Snohomish County, Economic & Cultural Development 

We all at Unico appreciated your talent and hope to see you again at another wonderful event.
