It was very awe-some to see you at Sombra Winery. You played one of my very most favorite songs-Dream a Little Dream of Me. As well as a whole collection of the best oldies. Such a treat!! A week before my birthday, celebrating my mother's today, who already loved your music-just wow! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!

I look forward to buying your CD. I still listen to a compilation you put together some years back...with five beautiful songs on it.
Take care! Hope your wife and baby are well. (by the way, I saw you on a commercial. I was like "hey! I know that guy")

I recently heard you perform at the Olo Art Gallery for the Jefferson High School Class of 1978 Reunion. Your performance was AWESOME! I really enjoyed the variety of the music that you played and how wonderfully you played and sang the tunes. I'm looking forward to hearing you perform again. Please let me know of any public events where I can come hear you play. I'm also interested in purchasing any CD that you might record. Thank you.

My husbnd and I enjoyed your music while also enjoying our dinner at the Magic Pan. I was highly impress by your preformance. We found ourselves stopping our conversation(s) to listen to you pleasantly playing your guitar as your amazing voice filled the room. It's been a few months but I can still hear the wonderful sounds you released that evening. Hope we get to see your again soon.
Please post your preformances. We would follow.

Julio is a rare breed of artists. His voice draws you towards him internally, while reminding you of your soul's many facets. Julio is a hidden treasure in a beautiful desert land so often overlooked, but it's places like El Paso, where Julios are born... Wine and cheese go well with the stories Julio tells through his music.

Zin Valle Vineyards
