Would love to see you play in New Braunfels soon!!!!
I was introduced to Ruben V's music about 5 years ago and became a huge fan! A few years back, I introduced my son to his music and he's been a huge fan ever since! My son is currently stationed in Ft. Hood and will be in SA on Friday, May 6 for his birthday, I would love to surprise him with a CD. If possible, can you tell me where I can purchase one? Please send me an email at smora0612@gmail.com with a location. Thanks!! Sylvia
Hey Ruben, Not sure you remember me. Carl thornblade and I followed you back in early 2000's. We came to see your shows at Cibilo Creek and downtown. I have a picture of You, Carl and I. Glad to see you are still making great music! You are a great musician. Take care.
Sylvia turned me on to your music and I have been a fan ever since. I saw your show at Luna's, you are an amazing talent, made my drive from Waco completely worth it! I will be back for more! If you haven't heard or seen Ruben, you are missing out!
Thx for going to my uncles funeral,Just saw you in parade!AWESOME!!!!
Thx for going to my uncles funeral,Just saw you in parade!AWESOME!!!!
I know by know we are starting to freak Ruben out because we have seen him 3 weeks in a row but what can we say, We just can't get enough of his music. And we promise the Corpus show was pure coincidence, LOL!! Anyway brother keep up the good work and we will see on the 27th at Sam's.
Hi Ruben! I've been hearing about you for quite some time now, and I finally made it to your show last night at Sam's Burger Joint. You were phenominal!! EXCELLENT SHOW! I'll certainly be catching more of your upcoming shows.....and I'll be sure to say Hi!
Where are you playing January 9
Heading up to SA from the RGV next week...Going to a conference but will be there Wednesday night at Sancho's to hear some killer licks from the V-man. Can't wait!
Ruben, im glad to have met you and some band members on your way to Port Aransas on Sept 27, but how ironic how I met you guys, on the side of the road stopping to help you when the trailer had a flat tire!!! sincerely David G
Every time I see you Rubin it blows my mind how good you are. I was with Chris and friends the night the water came up at Bajas on Canyon Lake. You sat at our table 2 weeks back at On The Rocks. I can't wait to see you play again. Oh yea I still like the purple guitar.
Love your style, keep them coming!
I absolutly love Ruben V every time I see him I take lots of pictures and video and he is very kind to all of his fans everyone should go see him live he is incredible
Not because ur my sister , Yvonne andRauls friends but this music is my style, bad A, great rhythm I really like it , great !!
Ruben, thanks again for helping my celebrate my Birthday this Saturday, and for being our guest on THE LIST Radio Show! David Birdy
Ruben, you are truly a blessed musician and artist. We saw your show at the Southwest School of Art during Fiesta this year, and we were blown away by your performance. You and your band put on a fantastic performance. We bought your CD, 'True', and while the recordings are excellent, I don't think any recordings can capture the heart and soul that you pour into the music, It must be experienced live! We will definitely be checking out more of your live performances in the San Antonio area. Stay blessed, and keep doing what you do best. -rb
Tight! Awesome show tonight in Wimberley. Thanks for signing my CDs.
You were on FIRE!!! Great Show! First time at Sam's and it was Memorable!! Loved the Spanish Flair of the Beautiful woman playing the Castanetas. One day I will have you play for my Birthday :) Your Music Needs to be Broadcasted! Badass Show! Reminds me of my earlier days in the 90's living in Miami Beach and the Funk and Rock Live Shows! Rock On!!
Ruben, me and a few co-workers will be in town in February and are looking forward to catching a live performance. I've been a fan since 1999 when I caught you as the closing act at Booze, Blues, and Bar-B-Que at Fiesta Texas. Please let me know your Feb schedule when it pans out. Cheers my friend! Steve
.... WOW! took me back 40 years. Ya I am an old rocker, what else can ya say. Love your guitar man! Keep on keep'n on!
Hello Ruben... I am using this forum to tell you how much it meant to have you, Gabe and James play for us at Carole's special birthday party at the Grill... Everyone was amazed at the energy and power of the music. It was the party of a lifetime and I want to thank you guys from the bottom of my heart!!! JL
If see RubenV and don't feel his passion and gifts, then you don't get what music is meant to do. Music must evoke a feeling, emotion or memory you feel in your soul and his musical skill delivers it all and much more. He is a rare gift to San Antonio and today's music scene.
Ruben saw you in Portt a Saturday night at the back porch. Great show. You have a new fan. I loved dancing in the rain to your music. looking forward to seeing you in Austin at strange brew in Oct.
Ruben hi saw you for the first time in port a at the back porch. Was there with my girlfriends. Wow awesome show. We had a blast. Loved dancing in the rain to your music. Looking forward to seeing you in October at strange brew. Your new fan
Hoping to see you soon in Corpus Christi... We love your music and what you stand for. You are the Best!
Rock on Ruben V !!
let me ask you about "the will to live band" ? in 1991 what happened to family
Ruben, this James from Corpus I used to stay with you and your brothers. I am the one that built the sand in milk crates walls in the garage. I am looking for Cesar and David. I am doing a cd and wanted them to play on it. Contact me by the way it sounds great.
When is the new CD going to be available? I heard Waiting for the Light the first time at the Pharmacy and found the melody haunting and the lyrics inspired.
DECO District 1st year recognized 2014 Fiesta event was a blast, and Ruben V was awesome as always!!! Class A stuff!!
Ruben-you always do such an awesome job performing at SAILS Fiesta Fair and special events. I can't wait until Saturday April 19th at Comanche Park 2!
Dude, can't wait to see you at the Big D guit show again. You haven't been there in years? Can't wait, let's ROCK it!!
Great to see you're coming back to Dallas Guit Show....we missed you for years, let's hook up
Ruben,my husband was introduced to you and your music, by our close friend Clyde! Since then Clyde and Joey, have followed you religiously.Joey always came home and told me that your and your music were amazing.It was just this past January on our 33rd wedding anniversary, when he took me out to The Grill at Leon Springs to listen to your amazing music! It touched my soul,your guitar skills and your voice are a beautiful gift that you share with your followers. But the beauty in which you interact with your fans is even more endearing! That night I became a fan! So fast forward to Valentines Day, we went back out to see you again, and this time our whole family came. Our son Joey and his wife Marissa and our most special daughter Jamie! I am sure you won't soon forget her, she danced in her wheelchair to your music, you sang to her, and gave her your guitar pick at the end of the song. Just let me put it this way...you made her feel as though she was the star of the show, when in all actuality you are stellar, and the star of your show! Your people skills are amazing,and your humbleness shines through. All I can say is you won her very naive heart, and we are greatfull to you for that! Thank you for being a great human being! Many Blessings to you and yours...
MY husband and I and a couple of friends saw you Friday night 020614 @ Sams burgers, had a great time and you were above awesome. We had a great time.
I missed your show at the angry elephant last night, but I'll see y'all next Thursday :) I love dancing to your music
Hey Ruben I was introduced to your music by a very special friend of mine and a follower of yours for years she knows your hole story and family and I know way you have this oar around you and you are a very special human being I am from NY city and I have heard lots of musician in my life but I honestly can say that you are in my top musicians and the way you are with your fans is off the hook I saw you at The Grill the first time and after that I have been to Fralo’s Pizza across from the gill and at Calientes and every time you have come up to me and shake my hand you are an AWESOME!!

Don’t change my friend and continue what the Lord has put you to do in this earth Be Blessed.

Nice site Ruben I can't wait to see you play at Harmon's. And I need to see you play at another place. See you soon.
I'm from Chicago and since being in the San Antonio area I have enjoyed catching your shows in the area.
last night rocked at Cibolo, great seeing you after 26years. Cristo es mas que BUENO -- because he defies all catagories of good!
So,Ruben... do you even know how much your music impacts your fans? I'll tell you from experience, the 'afterglow' lasts for days. I fall asleep to the sound of your guitar playing in my head! I wake up to hear your beautyful voice singing your songs. I love the new songs, especially "True"; so sweet & melodious, awesome lyrics too. Fabulous news to hear that you're going back into the studio. Congrats on that, you and the band are sounding tight! You are just so intoxicating my friend, my spirit is revived by your sweet music. Keep invading my dreams babe, my life just wouldn't be the same without you in it...
Would love it if you came to Amarillo

Rueben, just wanted to say again what an AWESOME show it was at La Luna Saturday night Sept 7th. The show actually left me stunned days later (in a GOOD way). You ARE a San Antonio NATIONAL TREASURE!
Hey Ruben! Just had to let you know that your music really does 'fill my soul'... I'm blessed to have you in my life brother. Lovin the new T-shirt! People stop me to ask about you when i wear your T's, and that's awesome! Stay gorgeous, love ya.
You always seem to amaze me more and more when your in your zone!! Every time I meet someone new, the first thing I ask, "what kind of music do you like?", let me introduce you to Ruben...instant fan!! Keep rockin and see you at the shows!
After listening to Ruben V for the first time live, I was truly energized and admired his passion for music. He obviously truly enjoys what he does and his fans love it! He is amazing and I have become a new Ruben V fan
Going to see RV tonight with the family. Hope to see all Fans
There was an exclusively instrumental song that was written quite awhile back that showcases Ruben's exquisite guitar talents. I cannot remember the name of the song. Ruben informally referred to it as "A Talk with God" during a show close to Spring Branch north of San Antonio last November or so. It was the last song he played at a blues bar in Corpus Christi a a few weeks ago on a Saturday night, and again, he said the name of the song. I'd recognize the title if I saw it, so I checked both iTunes and Amazon to look through the albums and song titles to no avail. Could you provide me the name of the song, which album it is on, and where I could purchase it? I would very much appreciate it. I love Ruben's music. Living in Dallas I don't get to hear it as much as I'd like, but it is well worth the trip to San Antonio to hear a live show on occasion. Thank you again!
Hey Ruben, I really enjoyed your show last night at the Grill at Leon Springs. I was the one that talked to you about liner notes and analog amps. I've been a fan of live original music for most of my life and you guys really had it together. It was a real pleasure meeting you. We'll be out to see you again soon. David Mieth www.davidallenvoicetalent.com/songwriting
Ruben I was turned on to your music about a decade ago by my big brother Sam who took me to one of your shows and became an instant fan. I have been to many shows both electric and acoustic and appreciate that you put your heart and soul into every show keep bringing us the great music brother.
Please add San Antonio Blues Society to your list of friends.
Thanks for Rockin every single performance that you entertain us with, its always a great show and I'm on edge from start to finish. If I only had your God given talent I wouldn't want to emulate any body but you brother. For now, my air guitar is mastered..lol Thanks and continued blessings for you!!
Wonderful to have this to refer people to. Hang on, the ride is going to be exciting.
looks wonderful!
Nice site, Ruben! :)

Hey man - just swung through here to check it out - saw an ad for a gig you were doing in the current. Heard from Ligaya lately? Take care - God Bless
Seen you for the first time Saturday 1-26-13 at the San Antonio Event Center and I was totally impressed to say the least. I am from Houston but might just plan a road trip to see you play again in San Antonio. Once again totally enjoyed your show!
Great concert at the Event Center, Great opening for the Lonely Boys, Thanks, A New Fan
Whaaaas up Ruben? I was adding you to my facebook page under favorites and saw you are playing this Saturday with Los Lonely Boys. Monty are on our way to San Antonio to see you...can't wait!
My wife and I caught you at the Cove Saturday night also. My wife had seen you many times and was a fan before Saturday but, this was the first time I'd ever seen an entire set by you. I knew from the few times I've caught just one or two tunes by you that you are awesome, but dude, you're a MONSTER!!! Like I said, you play like I do...in my dreams. Needless to say, you have a new fan for life. And let the Cove know, the only reason we came down there was to check you out; their food was good, but we came because of you.
Hi, Ruben. I saw your show at The Cove and was totally blown away. You have a very talented band and your guitar skills are through the roof. Can't wait to catch another show. Best of luck!
Hey man I bought your old Gibson V from guitar center today. I saw your signature on it and they said to look you up. Cool stuff.
We caught your VEE show last night at Floores and loved it. Definitely love the new sound and look! Keep us updated on any new VEE shows!
Nice to see you and your band rock it in Port A. I was the gal who passed your tip jar. Would do it again. Hopefully I will see you play in Austin. Peace and Love- Christine
Saw you at the Cove in September. As soon as I heard your music, I knew you had something special. Bought your latest CD. I crank it up on my way to work most mornings. Can wait to see you live again.
Great performance at Harmon's Barbeque! Good food! too.
My friend took me to your show last night...really enjoyed it! A true performer...felt like I was in your living room. Keep it up, I'll be a fan for life. Thanks!
Friend invited me to your show "Loved it" I can't stop talking about you, You are awesome. Great show, I will continue to promote you.
Ruben I love hearing your music. I've been a fan for years. You should get a twitter account. It's a good way for your music to reach out to the masses!
First timer: My son and I saw your performance at the BB King show on 8/19/12 in San Antonio. You did a great job opening for a lifetime American legend. I enjoyed your set and look foward to seeing and hearing more.
Hi Ruben - just wanted to give you props for absolutely shredding last night before B.B. King!! I'm definitely a fan.
Ruben.....thanks for lighting up the stage at Dr. Rockits in CC . I'm still on cloud nine from your performance lastnight as I watched your fingers fly all over your guitar and heard your one of a kind lyrics as you sang the to beautiful music you make .....you're an angel in disguise ....
Haven't seen you since Cibilo Creek Church days....well couple times but been a longgggg time. Can't wait to see you again tonight at H20, so excited!
Great night at Sealy Flats in San Angelo. Looking forward to your return. Have Ruben V CD's streaming thru the house :-) Have added you to my favorites... Los Lonely Boys and Santana.
Great show at Pier 27 - beyond amazing.......I was transported :-) So enjoyed meeting and chatting with you. Would love to see lyrics of the Spanish song you guys did in the final set - "Angel levantarme" or something similar?
Its so awesome that RubenV is at the Harley Davidson place again today, I missed him yesterday... but what's even better is that I am sitting on my balcony able to listen to his wonderful music. Thanks Ruben for making my Sunday morning a delight with your music. Gotta go, back out on the balcony. Love ya!
just wanted to say hello and sorry we missed your birthday. So Happy Birthday.
Ruben I first saw you in San Antonio in 96-97 during Fiesta. I bought one of your $5 cd's. I was so moved by the entire cd specifically a song on there called "Babygirl" or something to that reference. Wondering if you could please tell me the name of that cd, if I can get it again and provide the lyrics of that song. Thank you PS - Happy Belated Birthday - My mom shares a birthday with you
Happy birthday Ruben, Hope it's a great day for you!! :)

Ruben, it was a pleasure and an honor meeting you tonight at The Cove. I'm adding a number of your tracks from "Come To Me" onto my station's playlist and you will now have exposure to a much larger and diverse audience. Look me up on Facebook and check out my station's FB page "Rhythm & Jazz Radio." Let's talk soon about what else my station can do for you. As I always say, "I'm always about the bands and the artists."

Are you playing at the Dallas International Guitar Festival this year? I think you're one of the best every year at that event. The proof is in the PRS endorsement!!!

We enjoyed ur show at crossroads!! Can't wait foe the new song. Milk and honey.
My brother Russell Banton,San Antonio, Texas, says that he is a Ruben V. groupy which surprises him at his age and the fact that he, before listening to Ruben, did not know that he liked Blues music. I have listened to Blues for years and so I am excited that Russell, his wife Sandy and his son and daughter all love Ruben's music. It is my hope that someday Ruben will be asked to come to Maine for the Blues Festival in Rockland, Maine. Don
Yo Ruben! Just stopping by to say I love your style of music man and like always you make it worth going into work every time you play out on my patio at The Grill man! Cant wait till Friday! Safe and illustrious journeys Ruben! Keep making that guitar having lots of "SAFE" sex with everyones ears!!! HA! -Your boy on the patio Mike L.

Last night at Harmon's BBQ The 'Reverend' Ruben was in great form, especially when he played his newest hit single '(I need a) Blessing' after a few equipment failures. He, Kevin and Val gave us another incredible performance last night.
I'm coming down for the Dallas Guitar show again. Really hope to see you there. You're always a highlight. Maybe we can catch up. Be a Blessing!
Thanks for making my 50th birthday a night to remember. The 80 friends of mine that were there all loved you and can't wait to see you again. You may be the "legend of San Antonio now, but soon you will be the legend of Galveston County!

Hey ruben; wanted to ask if it would be possible to get ahold of a copy of your Let Me In c.d. Im afraid someone has walked out with miine. and you so generously signed the case for me for my birthday awhile ago. I love love the song Golden Slumbers on it. It was a nice surprise to hear it on that c.d. Thank, Pam Palacios
hi Ruben : my family and I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and safe New Year. I hope we can catch another show soon. It was great seeing you in Corpus last month. Stay gold. God Bless you and yours. Pam
Mr Ruben V. its been awhile since me and my wife have seen youj play your heart out but that drought will come to an end on dec 17 in corpus. God Bless Ruben see ya soon .YOUR FRIENDS FROM KINGSVILLE
If you ever get to ST Louis, MO or even Chicago, IL, please email me ahead of time. I'd love to come see/hear you play.
I'm a friend of Rick Stikeleather. He just turned me on to your website & music. GREAT blues by the way! Love the sound and your voice...
I saw you at the Late Night @ the DMA in Dallas. Your music was fabulous. I'm 15 and I aspire to become a professional guitarist. Seeing you perform was a great experience.
lots of friends of La Onda turned more of us on to your wONDAful music. Thank You!
I discovered your music through a friend of mine Rick Stikeleather... LOVE IT.
Caught you playing at The Cove last night (11/6). What an AWESOME performance. First thing I did rolling out of the parking lot was put your CD on, to listen to it on the way home. Thanks for chatting me up after the show. You're real and sing from the heart & soul! I love that! Keep up the great work. I can't wait to bring my friends & family to see you when they come to visit!
My two friends and I caught your show at the Cove and then had a chance to talk to you in the parking lot afterwards. I can't rant and rave enough - you blew us away: I think it was the best live show I have ever seen in my 50 years. You have more energy and style after a 4 hour show than most artists have at the beginning. We will definitely be seeing you again and bringing our friends! Also posting to Facebook and Twitter as well.
hey brother, another mother not withstanding, lets catch up...
Thanks for playing the benefit this last weekend. Watching you is always a learning experience.
Hey there Ruben,just wanted to say that it was great seeing you in the Bear Moon Bakery on Tuesday ,10/5/2010. in Boerne..it was my first day to start there, and it brought back old memories from the past when I would see you perform..so excited that you will be at MICasa on Friday, got to work, but will be there shortly after. Nice ride by the way...My husband and I ride as well, would be real cool to catch the wind with you...See ya on Friday..
Remember "Crazy Frogs" in Cypress, TX? Now it's "On The Rox". $100,000.00 upgrade. It's big and it"s beautiful. We've been begging the new owners to book you! I see you are coming to Cypress Saloon, Oct. 17. See you there man.
Just FYI - I've asked Pandora to add you to their list of artists avaialble on their site. ALthough I've heard you on XM, everytime I search for your name on Pandora, nothing comes up. Just found out today that you can suggest artists, so I did!! Keeping my fingers crossed!! Chris Duarte is on there - you should be, too!
Ruben, I just want to thank you for Sending Alexis Cook a Get Well Card it means so much to her and she always talks about all the times she use to dance to your music. she is still in the hospital recovering, and as soon as she gets her new leg we will be there to see her dance to your music again.
We loved your show last night at the Cove! Thanks for sharing your talent with everyone!
Great show at Dan's Friday night, Look forward to your next show in Houston. Rickey and Lea
Man!!!!....Cheryl and Sharon were right!....YOU ARE A JAMMER!!!!!!!!!!! I've gone from an SRV fan, to an RV fan! Thanks for the Rockin show the other night.
Hey Ruben, it's been a long time since those days at Buc's in Fredericksburg, but I haven't forgotten how much fun we had. I always enjoyed talking to you and hope we can again. Just wanted you to know there is a new venue here, that I think is just your style, it's called the Crossroads Saloon and Steakhouse and they've been getting some great entertainment, but they ain't seen nothin' yet. I know the management and with your permission I'd love to give them your name. With any luck you'ld be playin' up here again, "cause the good Lord knows, we need somebody to come up here and rock the house, the way you used to. Best wishes always my friend, hope to see you again, God bless. Keep on "pickin'."
Ruben my friend, last nights show at Sam's was incredible! You shared the stage with Michael Martin with such grace...what a performance. I know its been a while since I've been out to see you, however, you never disappoint. Freakin AWESOME! Love & God bless!

Hey Ruben, Thanks for being so nice to my friend Dee from San Francisco and my friend David from Forth Worth at the Hyatt Wild Oak Ranch. They have actually heard your music through me. They were looking forward to seeing you when they came to SA and they were not disappointed! Thanks for the wonderful music! It was great meeting Cale and your kids. Keep on Rockin V!

Hi Ruben. I met you at The Long Bar on a Wednesday in April at the prompting of our mutual friend Mark Tucker. You are awesome and I thoroughly enjoyed the show. I was hoping to expose some other members of my family to your music at The Long Bar ... will you be playing that venue anymore? I don't see it on your calendar anymore.
Hey Ruben I was just in San Antonio for Onel's wedding and one of my biggest regrets is that i didnt get to see you this trip.

hey ruben riding the harley to rockits for your show fri nite, do you want to meet up to ride your bike to the show? maybe meet at 1604/37s
Everyone who hears you play CLOSE THE DOOR is amazed at your guitar playing abitlity. What a great song. We have not heard WHOLE LOT OF ROSIE in a long time, which is another crowd favorite. San Antonio needs to come hear a great guitar player and support him, he is a VERY VERYspecial talent. Come see for your self, you will awed by what you see and hear from Ruben V.
Great site bro. Congrats on all your successes!
love the music.............huge fan !
Ruben I still think you need to record Dimples. Its get to see you doing so well. Peace and love my brother
Caught your act at Anhalt Hall on April 10th and you guys sounded amazing. That was our first time to catch one of your gigs and we will surely be catching you at some of the local gigs. San Antonio residents are very lucky to have such a unique talent in our area.
Ruben: Mom loves the Letter from Heaven song...She listens to it every morning. She has found immense comfort in it and wanted me to express her thankfulness. It has been two years since Sarah passed away and she said this is possibly the first time she has encountered some PEACE because of your words in the song.. Thanks for being so special to all of our family!
Tried to listen to you on 3-20, the weather was cold and windy. We left early, felt so bad. Love your music.
We saw Ruben V on St. Patty's day at Freetail and again last night at The Cove. Awesome show both nights! We look forward to future shows.
1st time i saw Ruben V was at Fiesta a few yrs back, then i would go to Rebars to catch a few of his gigs. Tonite i'll catch at the Cove and that will be my 1st time there een though i passed it 1.000,000 times haha Gotta love live music and rock and roll . I know you will jam out tonite
GET A TWITTER DUDE! Tweet about your shows so I know to GO! Sincerely, a true fan. =)
sorry we haven't seen you in a while, but we will soon. don now has his shop and is very busy. we miss your great music & maybe we will see y on my sons bday or sooner!
Ruben V Rocks!!!! Smokin hot guitarist, who writes songs with a poetic spirit. He has got a song for your every mood, your every craving. Love him live, love his albums, love Ruben V.
I saw your show in Corpus in 07. Great show. It influenced our band to write a song about Corpus Christi called CCTX about a weekend in C.C. The show we attended is featured in the song.
Ruben,come back to IHOP after your next San Antonio show!I didnt get your autograph. Teresa Bring me a T shirt or a CD!
any word on who your guests will be here in Houston on Dec 11th? I'll be celebrating a birthday at your show!! Yea!!
Heard one your tunes on satellite, I am impressed. When can we expect to see ruben in the twin cities, or maybe on the LRBC. Can't wait to see a show. Blues fan in MN.
I was here..txprnzes...Donna...brneyedgrl4545.....on myspace.....can't wait to see you in Houston on Dec 11th....OMG~!!!! This girl is very excited.....
Hi Ruben-- Had a great time watching the show last Wednesday at Sam's Burger Joint with you and Jeff Strahan. Nice "Vewgas" touch with the dancers-LOL. Robin.
I can remember when you were just a choir boy with a guitar in high school. Saw that you were going to be in Snyder....we may drive over and catch your show!
Ruben! Killing show man! Keep doing ya thing! Best, Nadine
Ruben, When you gonna play in Ft Worth?
Just got to know your music last night at Republic House (Oct 24). I was with the chicas up front ;). WOW - gotta bring the hubby next time. Totally forgot to buy a CD but thank goodness for ITunes. Keep up the awesome job!
I´m visiting Texas from 25th Oct.-1st Nov. coming from Germany ( remember your friend from 1993 ) and hopefully listen to one or two of your wonderful concerts. Take care and see you Runi
Ruben - Heard your song "She's Trouble" on Sirus today (of course, BB King Bluesville station channel 74). What a GREAT song, with GREAt lyrics. I had never heard your music before today, and I'm going to download that song from iTunes. Keep rockin' with the blues. Princessa Pamster
Hi Ruben I am the landlord of The Black Bull Public House and Restaurant in Donington near Boston in Lincolnshire U.K. A friend of yours Chris Lamb Lives nearby and he gave me your Labour of Shame C.D. I play it regularly, as back ground music, especially on Sunday evenings when it is quiet enough to hear it. Chris has nw given me your latest Come to Me which you were kind enough to sign. I am really enjoying it. You signed it come to Texas, I think that is just what I will do I just love the music. Thank you very much. Kind Regards, Malcolm Mills
Hi Ruben, Missed y'all in Houston the other nite. The whole family has been sick so we missed your show. We plan to come your way sometime soon and hunt out one of your shows. I need my Ruben V live fix taken care of. So it's going to be a road trip Camping up that way may be the right move too. Hope to see ya soon. Mark McMillen
New cd rules........
Hey Ruben, I miss you Man! gotta hear your music. I've worn my CD's out. Checking the schedule to see when I can catch you next. Tell Cale and the kids I said hello. Love you dude.
Enjoyed the CD release party at the Josephine. I hope u will start an annual fan sponsorship drive-maybe raise the membership to $100 but provide some extra perks ( more free entrances, extra cd copies to give to friends, etc.) I'm pulling for your success!
Great show friday 9/4/09 in CC and thanks for playing "babygirl" for me, look forward to the release of your greatest hits album in Nov. Maybe you can post the lyrics and song on your web page.
Hey Ruben, give me a call. Glad you are going to be at Dan Electro's soon. Benn a long time! Reed R
Hey Ruben, heard "Grow Some Wings" playing on KSYM today. From the first notes, I thought, "that sounds like Ruben V." I was sure it was you when you started singing. Loved the song, will be buying the CD for my collection. Haven't been able to get out to hear you play in while but I wanted to congratulate you on the new CD. Take Care.
Ruben, You and the band were just Incredible ! The Josephine Theater "Come to Me" CD release party Aug. 29th, 2009 was a blast for myself and my wife. First time I saw you was at Gruene Hall a few years ago when you opened up for Delbert McClinton. After you played I actually forgot who I was there to see in the first place! In my opinion you stole the show. The new CD is GREAT and we will certainly catch you again soon. It was fantastic to see Barry "Frosty " Smith filling in on drums for you. Is this the same Frosty that played with Lee Michaels in the late 60s or early 70s? Welcome to San Antonio "Frosty"!!! Ruben, keep on doing what you do so very well. Thanks for the Music!!!
Hey Ruben, Look forward to seeing you and hearing your music this Friday at Dr. Rockits in CC. I am going to try to gather some old friends to meet me there.
Hey Ruben, Fridays show rocked as always!!! That black Les Paul fits you well. Got to hook up with you to see what you think of the little red SG I hot rodded. Let me know what is good for you. Jack
when i see your band it always makes me feel "Happy".......... Thanks for the great tunes!! ;-)
I was visiting f a friend in SA and she took me to see your 7/3 show at Chango's. WOW! Masterful control and feeling for the music. Saying that I was impressed was a great understatement. I was blown away by the intensity. I'll be spreadng the word about ut you to all of my peeps here in Indianapolis. Can't wait to come back and catch another show in October.
Been missin you man. It's been way too long since you've made a trip to Houston. Guess I'm gonna have to hit the road and come your way. I was hoping to make the Robert Cray show but it was too close to my daughter's wedding. I'm sure you rocked the house and reached a few new fans. God Bless, and hope to see you soon.
Me, and my wife Carol started dating in our teens during the late 70's, and as now were riding motorcycles. This brings us to you. We without knowing had been at many of the same concerts, bands such as Aerosmith, Santana, Rush, just to name a very few. We found this out later when we met and had the same ticket stubs, (we all used to save back then, and we still have) 7.00 for a great seat to see Aerosmith at Hemisfair. No mas. Well as usual I always get off track. Well I'm a frustrated musician wanna be, and with you, let me say, we both like what we see, and more importantly hear. You got "IT". The music, the charm, the down to earth. Love it bro. And as a fellow Harley riders, I think you know what I mean. We first heard you at Caliente, and were there when you had the former Santana singer. I remember an amp blowing out, and how cooly and non-chalantly you left to get another. I would have been in absolute panic mode. And you played on, giving people what they came to hear. You encompass all the influences you mention as mentors and blend it with your own style. There's no question we like some of the same bands. I hope, and believe there should be good things coming your way. And while I'm sure you know this already because you do it, but when you do a gig to help the down and out, it does not go un-noticed. I just heard the songs posted on your website, and they'll soon be on our Blackberry's which are like our ipods. Having been around people people like Augie Myers, the late Doug Sahm and the like, (my cousin owns Blue Cat recording studio). You put out the vibe bro. So just keep doing what you do, and we look forward to hearing you soon, and we know we'll be at Caliente for sure. By the way, I know Fred must dig your groove. Take care, Donney, and Carol Pena
Thoroughly enjoyed your show, as always!
Message: I am 55 yrs. old and retired. I have written some songs that seems to go over well with some friends. I would like to submit them to Ruben V. I do seek none other that modest fair treatment, should he find he can use them. For me this seems a delusional stretch, but what the heck. Could you pass this on to him for his consideration. I know he must be busy. I will try to be at his next San antonio venue and will likely only approach him if he responds to my e-mail address. Thank you and may God bless. Should you be interested, feel free to e-mail or call me at the attached number. I hope to be at your next S.A. venue.
Ruben..I am trying to get a reserved table at Sams for the 25th..but it will not let me pay for it on your website or Sams website..i will gladly pay for it ..but neither website will let me..want to have a table for the show..let me know how to do this..hope you are having a great show in C.C...Let me know how to get that table..
Ruben, I used to listen to you as often as I could in SA. I've since moved to New Orleans and want you to come out here. I hope you remember me talking to you about that a couple of years ago. I'm working on the House of Blues to sign you up for a gig here in the Crescent City. I hope I can pull it off and make your tour here a success. I hope you and your family are well. Happy 4th!
So..what is up with you and the Austin legends..Frosty..David..Tommy..are you guys going to perform more shows..have been to all of your shows..and they were great..I knew Clifford Antone and he would love to see you guys do more shows..and trust me he knew music..he taught me a great ear for talent.
Monty and I will be in Corpus the end of September for our anniversary and are hoping we will be able to get our "Ruben V Fix" It's been too long! We will continue to check your calender and hope to see / hear you soon. Can't wait for the new CD ! Take Care! Rosalie
Thanks for having "Church" at The Cove" Saturday! I think that was my favorite performance so far! Too bad your music was so hot that the speakers couldn't take it!! God Bless!
Ruben, We had a blast last night at The Cove. We brought in some new fans last night. They all loved you and one of them thought you should be on T.V. Thanks again for playing my old favorite.. The Way, The Life and The Truth. Its was awesome as always! God Bless and Thank you! Barbara Hernandez-Chavez
Tonight at The Cove was great --hadn't seen you in a couple years (shame on me). I enjoyed the teases for the CD -- looking forward to the release party. Thanks for always putting on a great show.
Ruben Thank You!!! I had such a great time at Harmon's on Saturday! The birthday bash was a great time to come out after all this time. You and the guys sounded better than ever and the new songs were awesome! Thanks for letting me sing along to the old stuff too...I know you heard me. lol. I'll make sure it's not another 2 years before i'm back out to see a show. Guys keep up the great work and continued success.

thoroughly enjoyed you at the Dallas Guitar Show, Apr 18! I'm considering using a Martin, electrified, in my contemporary Christian gig; I could use some comments about your preferences in pickups, effects...You don't owe me, but I'm now a big fan of yours, and would be very grateful for some advice!
Reuben Great show at The Cove last night.
Will be @ Harmons on March 13th with bells on to rock out with you! Sharon
Hey Brother. It was so good to be over in San Antonio again and come out and listen to you and the Band. Life would be so much simpler and easier if people would take the opportunity to simply chill to some of your music. I feel blessed to know you as a friend and a great musician with a unique style. A class act that stands tall. Be safe in your travels and be blessed always.Looking forward to playing the new music in the local Pub. British Chris
Forgot to mention saw you @ Lunas. Jam session with those guys was incredible. Sharon

By the way, thank you for autographing my CDs - am listening to them constantly and reliving my amazing weekend in San Antonio. Thank you for being the right person at the right time for my soul(had finalized a divorce that day). Your music was perfect for my heart. All my best, America
I've seen you at the blues in alpine all but once. my question is..I'm a DJ on the local FM 92.7 on sundays 12 noon to 3p.m. Ive played most of your music:Labor O.S.,Troubles,Me & M.G.,Lucky D.,& I am.my playlist includes:Keb Mo',Bonnie Raitt,Willie,Eric Bibb,Patrice Pike,Tab Benoit,Eric Clapton,Delbert McClinton,just to name a few.I used to DJ AT THE MARFA NPR station until I got this gig in alpine, the staion owner liked my airplay and asked me to consider doing a show in alpine----so the rest is history. My question to you is do youo ever send out promo CD'S? If you do could you include me on your sendout list? Here is my address to the staion: C.O. THE G-MAN SHOW//KALP FM//P.O. BOX 9650//ALPINE, TEXAS 79831..Thanks for your time and concern if you are interested--P.S. please tell any other muscian friends if you care to do so. LAST P.P.S.

I used to go see Ruben jam years ago, when the crazy horse was around, and when he would perform in the clubs downtown... I would love to get a hold of his first cd. My friends and I used to go almost every weekend. I would love to hear some of his new stuff and get some dates of when and where he is playing..

My friend Dave saw your show and brought your Labor of Shame CD to work...we're listening to it right now and it is very good...keep it up.
I saw you last summer @ the County Line in San Antonio & bought a CD which I was listening to on the plane on Sunday. Just looked @ their calender as I am heading there in the morning & saw where you will be there tomorrow night, 10/29/08. Made my day!
Ruben, I finally got to hear some of your music on the website. It's awesome! I'm still waiting on the CD you promised me. Not to worry, take care and be safe on those Harley's. I'm looking forward to seeing you play.

Ruben, just a line to say what a Real Pleasure it was for Us (JTB) to be Chosen to open the Show for you last Friday @ FriendZies. In a word, you were Awesome! I'd say it's just a Matter of Time before your Star Rises. (Big Time) Again, an Extreme pleasure to both Share the Stage with, & To watch your Performance. I understand you usually perform sans an opening act, but if you ever have need again, the Pleasure would be ours. Good Luck in the Future. Tony2
I just want to tell how much I enjoyed myself as well as my bandmates, lastnight at FrendZies. Your new material sounds great. I am honored to have been able to open up for you Ruben. I hope we can do it again!
I first heard your name thru Rockhills Church and when I heard your music I was blown away. I am relocating to the San Antonio area and would love to know when you will be at Rockhills again. It is inspiring to hear someone so very comfortable and openly able to express his love for Christ. Awesome sound and I look forward to seeing you play sometime.
Hey brother, it was a great pleasure and honor to meet you there at REDBONE and to get to watch play some guitar on several guitars. I thank God for blessing you with the wisdom and the years to know the difference and the impact that you have on the lives of so many people. your in my thoughts and prayers to the Big Daddy en el Cielo (JESUS). laters Bro...PEDRO

Hey Guys!!! Heard you play at Froggie's in Houston the last 2 dates and think you are AMAZING! Will be sad when you guys move to bigger venues 'cause I enjoy the, for lack of a better word, intimacy of this small venue. Got a chance to talk a little bit with Brandon and Gabriel, sweetie pies both. How lucky you all are to be able to something of passion and happen to make some $ as a bonus! Looking forward to your next Houston date... from your latest fan, Erin
We have now seen you guys three times at Froggie's in Cypress. Next time you are there I'm going to invite all my friends and make them come see a musical miracle.
Hi there: Just wanted to say thanks for being such a kind soul. I'm Chris and Suzanne Holzhaus' sister-in-law. My husband and I are very grateful for the help you offered Chris and Suzanne during his illness. We wish you phenomenal success, and hope to hear you play sometime! Warmest regards, Veronika in Virginia

My wife and I saw you perform at TL&C this past Friday at Lake Ray Hubbard. We were both very impressed and I commented to you that your music was the freshest I had heard since SRV. I have since played your CD for several friends and co-workers and they all agree with the sentiment. Keep it up and hope to catch you next time you are in the Dallas area!!
Just wanted to stop by and say hello...Saw you for the first time this weekend at City Tevern in Dallas and I was blown away!!! The jam session that the show evolved into was nothing short of mind-blowing. Thanks for sharing your time and talent with us here in D-Town.
Ruben I loved seeing and listening to you on Sat. at Executive Surf Club you have such a strong stage performance truly you are a breath of fresh air and only from the grace of God Me, Myself and I have the honor to hear you live.
I have been really blown away by the depth and pure genius of your music. Your videos on tunetoad.com are freaking unbelievable and thanks for letting us film that great performance. Best of luck to you in your shining music career and always know that tunetoaders are behind you. Chad CEO/co-founder TuneToad.com

I loved your concert at the Fuller Vintage Acoustic Stage at the Guitar Show yesterday. My family and I listened to your CD twice on the way home (Little Rock). :) Thanks for the music! We'd love to know when you will be in Arkansas... V (Vaneesa)
WOW! I truly enjoyed the music today. Thanks for sharing your talent Nyla
Hey V! It's Hunter from the Wulffpack! Heard you put on a great show at the NCAA concert. Congrats brotha!!! Wish I could have been there to see ya! See you this Summer man!
Ruben...Another awesome gig! The NCAA Big Coke Fest was so fun! From the beginning when we we saw your name on the board at the entrance all the way to the end of your show. Of course, later I had to deal with my sunburn!!! hahaha Thanks for the experience...Rock on V!
hey hope all is well.
SSH look 4ward to the new project at harmons bbq its all about the guitar thing bro
Ruben it is so cool that you are playing at the NCAA Final Four Big Dance Celebration. Looks like it is going to be awesome...I am sad Pitt didn't make it, it would have been a great excuse to go home. :) Keep Rockin! Here is an excerpt from the article: "On Sunday, April 6, My Coke Fest⠢ takes center stage with American Idol’s Ryan Seacrest as special guest host. The day of celebrity‐filled concerts headlines with Three Doors Down, and also features alternative rockers All American Rejects, country superstar Taylor Swift, the Latin music sensation band Kumbia All‐Starz, and San Antonio’s own Sexto Sol and Ruben V" For the complete article go to: http://www.ncaa.org/wps/portal/home?WCM_GLOBAL_CONTEXT=/wps/wcm/connect/NCAA/Media+and+Events/Press+Room/News+Release+Archive/2008/Announcements/20080313_mff_bigdance_ent_rls.html

Ruben, take your time out and come back with a vengence. You are too good of a entertainer and guitar player to leave for long. We all will anxiously waiting for your return to the world of music. We all loved your shows and your sweet guitar licks so much. Everyone that comes to see you play just falls in love with your music. We all will seriously miss you and I feel I am speaking for many of your supporting fans.
V, Isaiah 55:11 "so is my word that goes out from my mouth;It will accomplish what i desire and achieve the purpose for which i sent it" your music is a message don't forget that!!!! i know you will come back stronger. tu amigo por vida, robert
Hey Ruben, Great show last Saturday for Will. Everyone has come up to me with compliments for you. You all really played your hearts out--as always--and I really appreciate it--i know he does too! tomorrow would have been his 9th birthday--keep us in your prayers. i know he's smiling down on us all! L, susan
Ruben, I just read the V newsletter. I was sad but I understand that you need some personal time off. I thought it was strange when I checked your calendar and didn't see any dates. Please keep us informed of any show dates with you playing. We need our Ruben V fix you know! :-) Come back soon! Take care V and Rock on!
Ruben! Hey! I sent you an email and would love to check in with you, it's been a long time, my friend! Please tell Elvis I said hello. Ya'll write a girl, will ya? I can say I knew you when, Lauri (Pearson) Hahn
Hi, Ruben, I was listening to an almost Harry Connick Jr. vibe on the last song on one of your albums. Very bluesy, croony, sexy, right as rain. Your buddy Carl Graf, who has followed you around SA and Houston requesting "The Way, the Truth, the Life", brought your CD out of his truck and into my house while we talked. I stopped the conversation a couple of times to comment on how I was boppin' out to your groove, so just know you were a hit on a date! And yes, always have the saxophone and the bongos with you, and it'll sound just right. May the Lord bless you with ever-sweeter opportunities and success when you least expect them. From your surprise new fan, Joley ("Je Renee" on iTunes)
I overheard your drummer the other night talking about booking you on some pretty cool out of town gigs and then replacing the rubenv band with a band that he is putting together. I know that L.J. has been with you for many years, but the way he was talking, you need to watch your back.
Hey Ruben I stopped by Sams buger joint a few weeks ago , I met some friends there you know them very well Joe Ortega and Gabby and I told some other buddys about your band .I like what I heard and I'm looking forward to attending more of your local gigs.
Just saw you two nights in a row (my first two times). Wow! Time to come to the East Coast: NYC, DC, Philly! And we need a live album--especially those of us outside of Texas, so we can share those sick 5 and 8 minute guitar solos with the world!
Amazing musician, Sexy man, Beautiful soul, Ruben V has it all. We are blessed by your God given talent and spirit.
Just wanted to drop a line to let you know that I think the music you make is great. I live in C C, TX and go to almost every show @ Dr. Rockits. Luvin It Tanya S.
Ruben,Ruben,Ruben Amazingrace how sweet the sound you are so awesome

Another fantastic show Ruben! Saw you at Legends Sports Bar last night with some friends. Everytime we go to one of your shows we find out some more good things about you. I think it's great how you mingle with the audience during breaks. We can tell how sincere of a person you are. Looking forward to seeing your show again and I keep spreading the word about you! Rock on V!
Just wishing you and yours a beautiful New Year! Can't wait to kick back and watch you play again someday soon! Kelly and Family
So Ruben, now that Cosmos has closed down, Have you been able to set up anything with the people at Howling Coyote? Or anyplace else in Houston? Here is another place that just opened in NE Houston (near Kingwood) - Rock Wine and Blues. No web site yet, just a Myspace. Search Rock Wine Blues and you will find it. It's a very nice upscale blues club and wine bar. Kelly and I went there New Years Eve and saw Pete Mayes and Sherman Robertson. They are getting in some pretty good name acts. Check them out. I would love to see you there cause it's walking distance from my house!!! Hope to see you soon. God Bless!

Ok.. well that stinks, You play the 25th at Casbeers, the 27th at Hooligans But you dont play any where the 26th (my birthday) Then your out of town all weekend. What am I supposed to do?
I look forward to seeing you live in Lampasas this coming Saturday (9-22-07). Your music samples on this web site are excellent. Keep up the good work.
I'm a big Stevie Ray Vaughn fan. When I heard you were coming to our church (Grace Point) I didn't know what to expect. I really enjoyed the show. You definitely tore the place up. Keep rock'n!
Saw you at Grace Point Church on Friday! You've made an eternal impact on my 7 year old aspiring guitarist. He saw how God can be honored by using your gifts! Thanks!

You were great last night, as always. Looking forward to hearing and seeing you again very soon.
V. Your "Labor of Shame" cd is a great mix of rock & roll & blues music that makes me want to rock out, mellow out and dance to. I listen to the whole cd over & over, but mostly "Stand Next To You"....I love that song! Keep on rockin`, V. A new-true fan! I've been V-nized.
I'm the blonde that comes to your shows w/ Tamara and Sandy and the kids. We all miss you. I have not been around in a while, but I'll be back soon w/ new people.
Me and my husband went to REBAR 9/7/07 and we where amazed at your talent. You just dont hear that kind of awesome talent much anymore. I cant wait to bring my brother n law (he plays guitar and his favorite influence is/was Randy Rhodes. I see you will be at GracePoint Friday night and that is awesome, me and my family used to attend their before we moved and now I can bring my 12 year old son to see you this Friday night(he wants to be a drummer) Godbless you Ruben V, never stop playing from your soul, its beautifull!!!!

My wife and I saw your show at Rebar last night Sept 7th. Awesome!!!!! We will be seeing you guys again soon and I will definetly bring and tell friends about RubenV. Badass!!!!!
Ruben, My brothers (six) have been at various places you performed at, bought your cd's and said that you are "AWESOME". Since, I've wanted to see you perform and finally caught about the last hour of a show you performed at Harman's BBQ on 8/11/07. I have to say I'm sorry I missed most of your show. My brothers are right, you guys are "AWESOME". I would love for my husband and, of course, myself to see you perform again, this time the whole show. I'll be checking your schedule for places you'll be performing so we could come enjoy the fantastic, great rock & roll blues music that you have such a talent for. I look forward to watching you perform all your original songs and copy songs that you perform. Not only is the band and the music invigorating, but you have an incredible voice. My brothers bought your autographed cd at Harman's and when I saw the cover, I thought this does not look like you. It's not to say that it doesn't do you justice, but if you come out with a new cd, I'm sure you'll have a new set of songs and cover, to which, I'm looking extremely forward to watch you perform and buy an autographed cd. I asked one of your band members if you guys have a manager because it amazes and surprises me that you're not "big time" already. Thanks for the good music. Sharon ps. I did get your autograph! Who knows hopefully it might be worth something someday. I don't see why not!!!!!! Later!
You are a true soul man! Love ya!
Please put me back on the list to receive updates about where you are playing. Thanks, Stace
Something is changing with you, I am not sure what it is. Saw you in Corpus 8-25-07 and noticed the change. Is is your looks, or your vibe? Not sure, your music was different to. What's up? Time will tell. I will always try to get to your show, no matter what or where.
I'am the one from Corpus Christi, but John and I see you alot in San Antonio...... We just bouoght your late's cd it's realy great....
Ruben...I love the new website! Sorry that we haven't seen you in over a month but we're gonna change that. You are busy so that must mean you are happy playing your guitar. Take care & God Bless you. Siempre con Amor y Cariño.
Hi! Ruben went to the show last night had a great time (as always) you and the band are awesome (as always) just wanted to let you know that I think the headband is adorable LYL.
I truly enjoyed your show at the Roadrunner Catina the other night. I had never heard you before. I mentioned that I saw you to several friends and they had either heard how good you were or have seen you themselves. Pretty awesome show. Thanks.
Hey Ruben, Taking advantage of the 31st being my b-day to invite people out to see you jam @ Silo's. Helping spread the word about you my brother cause RUBEN V LIVE is an experience! See ya again Saturday night at Hooligan's...bringing the b-day party for one more jam!

your music really is amazing. I feel I know you, though, I don't. I am a friend of your brother, Ceasar, whom I consider my dearest friend and yes, my brother. I wish you all the happiness and success that you deserve and have earned. Always continue to move forward my brother. I hope to meet you soon and watch a jam session as Ceasar has promised...until then, Godspeed, Outlaw.
Say brother, Of course saw you again last weekend in Corpus. Great show!!!!!!! I know your busy but would like to see lyrics from all of the songs on "Labor Of Shame" on the website. Rock on! ABG
Ruben! You are awesome. I don't know if you remember me but I'm part of the Wulffpack! We didn't get to see you at the golf course because it cost too much for us and my dad is going to school full time! Your music is awesome! You have inspired me so much! Thanks!
Coming to see you tonight in SA and cannot wait. Listening to your music now and love, love, love it. Maybe you'll autograph the CD's I'm going to buy? Hope so.
Your rocked when you jammed in Corpus last month, your best gig ever (we think-the crazy corpus crew) u busted some strings too..shredding at it's best. See ya this weekend!
Steve Jr. and I were honored to share the stage at Casbeers with you last night (7/11/07)-Thanks so much! You were brilliant! Steve and Steve Sellers Jr.
We saw you guys in Alpine July 7. AWESOME! Come to Fort Worth sometime.
happy 4th big bro
Great music,you always could shred.Love the song Me and My Guitar.Great to hear your doing good . God Bless
Ruben, This is kind of personal, but everyone needs to know what a great giving person you really are. Learning to play an 8 year old boy's ukelele to sing your song "Missing You" at his funeral so his mom could convey how she felt was the most special thing anyone could do for me or Will. You made that time and day so special for me and Will, and I know he was smiling down at you from heaven. Words cannot express how much that meant to us and what a special place you and your family will always have in our hearts. My thanks to all of the guys in the band. Their support and love through this hard time means the world to me. Susan
Oh my GOD you are like a breath of fresh air Thank- you so much for being who you are no words could ever tell you how many lives and hearts you reach only God knows what tomarrow will bring so on that note Thank GOD that you come to Corpus Christi once a month wish it was more but I'll take what I can get take care of yourself and your family YOU ARE AWESOME LYL

Ruben, Im am heartbroken that we missed your other side performance. Are you going to schedule another night like this and if so when???
Ruben, LOVED your show last last! You are my first pick for people to go see when deciding to listen to live music. However, last night's group was amazing. You had such a full sound with the fiddle player, keyboardist, and steel guitar player. You may want to consider adding one or all to your regular band. AWESOME show!
WOW!!! What a show last night! The other side was awesome! You might think about having that fidller again - he was great! You all certainly rocked the house with a great show!
Ruben the other side at rolling oaks was awsome when are you guys going to cut a CD thanks for a wonderful show
Keep on Rockin man!
Thanks for a great show at Harmons. All I can say is WOW you and the band were in a zone. See you all soon
terrific show at harmons last night! my son and i and friends thoroughly enjoyed it.the extended version of close the door was awesome,as well as the rest! hope you follow up on the maybe release of a live album! continued success!
Great show at Harmon's last night! You and the guys were smokin' hot and the setlist was great. Thanks again for finishing up w/my favorite "Stay Awhile". Happy New Year to you all and we'll see ya in '07! Luv ya, Steff
Been a long time! My CD's are almost worn through. When are you gonna make it back up to Dallas? I believe the last time I saw you was at Hard Rock - like 5+ years ago!!! Way to long. I'm on your email list now. Will have to make a road trip to come see you. Take care - hope to hear you soon. Love, Kimberly
As promised, I caught your full act at Rolling Oaks and you were awesome. Brought a friend with me and they are now a BELIEVER... PEACE to all
Ron called me one night in South Carolina and said" babe, you gotta come home and here this band" " the guy's name is Ruben V" That was 4 years ago this past September. "the question every week is "where's Ruben playing??" You and the guys(and Jenni) are all great fun, always excited to see and shake hands with your fan base. You're just an overflow of awesome talent and goood fun. Thanks again! Gina G. and Ron H.
Enjoyed the comments of your fans, and agree with all of them. I have also worn out my copy of the CD you gave me,and wil be at one of your shows this month to pick up the new one. The last show I saw, which was at Luna, was amazing!! It's time to go National........hope you've got good management!
Ruben, Just want to thank you for your tremendous talent, performance and your part spreading the gift of music. You have one of the baddest bands around. I (We, all my friends, & family), had a blast on Sat, 12/09/06, at Dr. Rockits. I couldn't have asked for a better 41st birthday. I (we, the Corpus Crew) are 110% behind you). We can't wait for you to return to C.C. We took plenty of pics so we'll get those to you also. Always keep me in mind bro. You're fabulous! Thank You, William E. Gonzales
HEARD THE NEWS, YAHOO!!!!!! I will be spreading the news.
You are an inspiration for a young chicano bluesman like myself... I hope we share the stage many times and play the music in that's in our hearts till the day we die
You still pierce our souls. Have to see you live again.
Hey Hot -Dog. Put me on your "Friends" list!! I Can Do That!
V I know it has been a long time. Just wanted to let you guys know that all is well Levelland and the crew is doing fine,and says hello!!
Hey Ruben, Caught your aucostic set at Casbeers last Tuesday, awesome! I was waiting to see if you could break five strings on one song and keep jammin! I think you could!
How are you my brother? Have missed hearing you play in Houston. The last time I saw you was at my Birthday Party at Cosmo's in June. I tried to sign up on your web mail but it won't accept my address. Hope to see and hear you soon. Mark
Have not been around in a while. Out of state, out of touch. Feels good to be back in Texas. Last time I saw you was back around 99'. Glad to see you've had success in doing what you love and do well!!
Ruben, The new website design is great. I especially enjoyed the new Bio. Thanks so much for sharing all those details from your past and the development of your craft and career. It was really cool to read some details that I had never heard before in the years that I have known you. Keep up the fantastic work and I hope to see you next time you’re in Houston. Take care and God Bless.
I guess the reason you hardly play in Austin is because all the players there are afraid of you ! Too bad for Austin my brother !
Hey Breother, I have worn out your CD at cosmos, Houston needs the Real Deal!!! Reed.
I attended my first performance on 11/24. I know it will be the first of many. I went as a class project, but I am now a fan. I had a great time. You are truly a great artist, and I loved your music.
Music speaks what can not be expressed,soothes the mind and gives it rest Heals the heart and makes it whole,Flows from Heaven to the soul. Ruben your Music honestly is a gift from God
V: I love the revised website. I've been missing the Blues (??) lately; and hope you call soon; so we can hook up again... Blessings Tod Miller TNT Productions, ltd. / Minuteman Press Intl, Inc.
V, It was crazy to see you on "Flip This House" on A&E last night. V going nationwide!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Peace, Robert
Hey you, Great new look on the site and finally a bio that suits a man of your caliber! Love ya, Kerri :)
V, saw your gig last nite @ Rolling Oaks and it was captivating!I had to bounce early but you can bet I will catch the full show on the rebound. At last a good local sound.... Rick
Love the new picture
hey just wanted to say i love the new look on your website and you bio
Ruben, Monica and James Hester are my neighbors and Monica and I have gotten close. My husband plays some, his style is more like soft latin jazz, when Monica and James found out, they started to talk about you and your music. They really enjoyed watching you perform. I listen to all types of music but R & B is one of my favorites. I really like your music. Are your CD's sold anywhere locally and how much? Which one would you recommend for me to buy? Thanks, Tammy
Hey Stranga, How are you? Just lookin at where your at this weekend, We hope to make it out one night! Hope all is well, Tell the kiddos and Cale I said Hello.
Hey Ruben, Tony Cortez (Rev. Blues) turned me on to your music a few years back and I was blown away by your energy, style of music, and craftsmanship. I hope to catch more of your shows in the coming months and bring along friends to experience your music.
I came across your pic on my space and listened to your music and loved...right...away...
Ruben Hi!How are you doing? Awesome sums it up for me on your Friday night performance at Dr.Rockits. Thank-you so much for expressing a heart felt anniversary to Patty and William they were in awe of you and Thank-you for your soul searching music. Doreane
my daughter lives in San Antonio and sent me one of your cd's. It's great - I'm in Seattle - work with radio here - I'll be down in San Antonio in mid Jan 2007 - hope to see you perform while there.
comin 2 C U first time this saturday at Leon Spring! Looking forward to it!
You know you're from San Antonio when::: You lost your virginity at Mission drive-in You know exactly how to get to the "Ghost Tracks" from anywhere in town. You think "pro-choice" means flour or corn tortillas. You've never been to the Alamo. You think a health drink is a Margarita without salt. You think being able to read the Taco Cabana menu makes you bilingual. You used to live in a neighborhood you wouldn't even drive through now. There has been a road crew on your street since before the Alamodome was built. You remember when Crossroads Mall used to be called Wonderland. You've been to Midget Mansion. You know all about the "Dancing Diablo" and the "Donkey Lady" bridge. You know that Wheatley and Brackenridge is the same school. You remember the Captain Gus show. Your subwoofer has twice the value of your car. You have three rodeo outfits but never have been on a horse You're an expert with the brake pedal, but you have no idea what a blinker is. Your idea of culture is wearing a Hard Rock T-shirt. You think the last supper was at Mi Tierra restaurant. You do your grocery shopping at a flea market. You think local politicians are crooks, but you still do not vote. You have a "Selena Lives" bumper sticker on your car. You care if San Antonio is in the "national spotlight". A formal occasion is getting a glass with your longneck. You believe Tacos, barbecue, tequilla, and beer are the four basic food groups. You rented Pulp Fiction to escape the everyday violence of the city. You think wearing bows in your hair will get you a husband. Your White mother learned how to make Tamales & Menudo from your neighbors. You know the "real" definition of FIESTA is "stay home if at all possible". You have ordered Mexican food at a Chinese restaurant. You had breakfast tacos at Taco Cabana on Christmas morning. You remember the Joske's Christmas display. You remember when JC Penney's had a restaurant. You remember hamburgers from Whopper Burger. You're elementary field trip was to the Butter Crust Bakery. You know RubenV and think he's the best guitarist in the world!
when is the Ruben V Live in Texas cd coming out?
love the site! especially love the music
Is this message little enough to be one of... lost idea
Now I know what Roberta Flack meant when she sang "Killing Me Softly With His Song"! You are wonderful Ruben. This past Saturday at Harmon's was fantastic. I was glad to see Onell back on stage with you. It's nice to know that you appreciate "...Nothin' but a big *ss woman'! That made my night. I can't wait to you & the guys again! Take Care & God Bless.
Thank you so much for publishing the lyrics to "Lucky Day" so quickly. We took quite a few pictures of you and Monte last Sunday. The next time I'll get to see you play will be November 9th, and I'll bring you some copies. Maybe you can do a small acoustic set?!?
I saw your show friday at rolling oaks never heard you play before, but i was very impressed. i had fun. havent been out in a while and that being my first experience again, really impressed me. take care
Would you publish the lyrics to Lucky Day for me? I want to give it as a Christmas present. It is such a pretty song. Thanks and God Bless!
Caught the show last night at Casa Verde's and it was a dream come true seeing you and Monte jammng together. Can't wait to get the pictures developed!
Hey Ruben, thanks for the great show last night at RO! It got a little chilly by night's end, but you guys were awesome as usual. So glad that Phil got those heaters for the deck! It is such a treat to watch you play. Glad that Chris could be there to celebrate his b-day and join you onstage, too. Will see you again soon. Luv ya, Steff
Ruben, I have seen you play a couple of times, The"V" and in Spring Branch/Bulverde. I bought you Home CD I love it. I am hoping to check your show in Gruene on the 29th. I can't wait to buy your new CD. You are one of the best live performers I have seen Play. Keep Jammin.... Carey
Hi, Ruben, just wanted to stop by and say that Efraim and I were very happy to see you last night. We are glad we had the boys with us. Carlos was happy to finally meet you. He said," Mom Ruben is a really good (cool) guy. I wish I'd met him sooner." He played your CDs on the way home. We hope to see ya again soon. Take care. And "God Bless You and Your Beautiful Family" Love ya, Pam
Great show Sat. night but way too loud, hard to hear your voice and I like your voice.
Wow what an awesome show at Dr.Rockits on Friday night and to think I was just going to stay in that night thanks for the invite from Joey and Thelma Amador I really enjoyed your blessed gift of music. Take Care and God Bless you. Doreane
Great show at Uncle Albert's! Much appreciated the signed CD for my nephew Blake. Let us know when you come to town again. Nive work with the tremelo, ever try a Bad Cat Tremcat?

Great to have you aboard the Xotic team!!!
Good work. Interesting posts, besides those spam...
My brother and I just heard you at the BLue Cactus Cafe and thought you were great. We want our Dad to get your CD and put in his car in the #1 slot for CD's. We are tired of listeing to Michael Buble'. What does the V stand for? My Grandma is a Vela does it stand for that? What is your current favorite song to listen to? I will leave you with our family motto... 'You never know, you never do....' Madeline and Jaxon Wallace
Hey Brother it's great knowing you as a musician but even better to have you as a friend. Thanks for always being there for me <><
I really enjoyed your new CD. You’re an awesome musician! You can hear the hard work and dedication in you music and in your guitar phrasing. You really blow me away big brother. Keep up the good work.
See you @ Rebar October 14th.
Just keep on singing 'em BLUES!!!! See you soon .
Can't wait to see you again! Brian and I will be out to see you soon, old friend...
We've been out to see you the last 2 Fridays you played at Rolling Oaks Bar & Grill. You may not remember, but my youngest son, 12 years old then,& I met you at a recording studio with Pete (Texas Radio) and Lagaya. My sons are now 30 & 26. We are so very proud & happy for your success.
Rub, Enjoyed the Rolling Oaks Show a bunch!I guess im out of retirement now.
Ruben V the real king of the blues... in san antonio, texas. maybe austin and dallas and far beyond... he's the sound of the blues meeting rock and roll. he's the sound of the old blues masters meeting the firey fingers of ruben v himself... 1907 meets 2007. the past meets the future! Guitar into amp never sounded so good... Sure there was Stevie Ray Sure... Now today - there is Ruben V. Very much alive. Very much kicking. Very much Picking and Strumming Electrified Humming. Add effects and now you got the sound of tear drops echoing down hallways... Or the levee breaking Or raging storm Or leaves falling... Rock and Roll Funk Blues Puts the dancing in our dancing shoes
Just wanted to let you know that KFMX 94.5 FM played two of tour songs this week on the 10 40 blues show. Thanks Carl
Thank you very very very much. Wish you luck and mercy from all the creatures around the world.
Hey Ruben long time no see. This is Seth from Levelland. Sure do miss those discada's. At least they play you on the radio in Lubbock now.

I have sent him your web address along with your news letter that I receive from you. I hope this will get your name out even more. I could not stress enough how awsome your music is.Hopefully he will be contacting you in the near future.
Does anyone care about SRV's music anymore? I do... I think he has great music, and I love his beautiful looks. such a hottie... he can play the living hell out of a fender guitar.

I just recently moved back to San Antonio. I'm a big fan of live music and I like to support the local scene. I caught you all at the Sports Bar tonight and you guys are just badass. It was a great treat for me as I am recovering from leukemia and a bone marrow transplant. So it's been about nine months since I've even gone out. What a great way to celebrate kicking cancer's ass. I hope to see many more shows to come. Cheers! P.S. Would love it if you all play some no smoking shows like they do sometimes in Austin and Houston. Thanks :)
Rolling Oaks Here - We've got more tables, chairs, barstools, beer, beer coolers, and staff for your show Friday! You said to bring out the big guns so we got 'em out! You are the man.

Hey Ruben! We had the pleasure of seeing you guys for the first time this past Friday night at Rebar. My wife and I were with the crazy Mexicans who were loud the whole night. We are sure glad we joined them. My wife thought you guys were awesome and all she could said after we left was "WOW"! We can't wait to see you guys again in San Antonio and keep up the great work! By the way, the nickname I have for my wife is 'babygirl'. Naturally, she thinks you wrote the song for her! See you soon!

Great Music!! Heard about you from a friend on the night you played in Houston. How about coming down to Galveston to play a Gig? would love to see you !!!!
Ruben, I was recently in San Antonio visiting some friends and they turned me on to your music and I am very impressed! Your style truly reminds me of the late great Stevie Ray Vaughn! I just wish I could have saw you live when I was there. I will have those cd's soon!
Hey bud, It was good seeing you (and Adolf), the other night at Casbeers. It had been too long and I didn't even know you were going to be there. Really liked the CD we swapped, hope you like mine- kinda' that latin rock vibe goin' on. Well Shalom bro... roland PS: come check us out sometime @ www.HardRockChurch.com
Hi Ruben! Remember me? My little sister and I had the homemade t-shirts...I just wanted to say that you are a really great musician and I enjoyed the concert here in San Antonio alot! I was actually a little surprised, since most bands sound better on cd than live, but you guys were awesome! Thankyou so much for your autograph and I hope I can see another concert next time you're in San Antonio!
Ruben I saw you for the first time a couple of weeks ago at Rebar it was an awsome show I am hooked, I can wait to see you play again and hopefully you can play in Houston sometime. Laterz
saw the show for the first time lastnite. All I can say is WOW!
I saw you at Rolling Oaks Bar and grill, I was just blown away, needless to say I am now a FAN!...oh yeah thanks for signing one of your empty guitar string packs!!! You BROKE THREE STRING!!!! WOW!
Hey Dick - You have definitely found the best blues/rock musician in SA. Please enjoy on a regular basis. I don't know if Ruben will answer your question here in the guest book, but since I know the answer I will post what Ruben told me once. He said that he prefers not to play weddings because most people at weddings want to hear requests of popular songs and Ruben only plays music from his regular play list which is mostly original material. Now maybe if the wedding party and guests were mostly big fans and knew what to expect, then he might, but I'm only guessing there.
Ruben-Rock On ! Just listened to your latest CD driving to Fla. Awesome ! Saw you guys at Rolling Oaks last week for first time. Impressive ! Do you ever perform at weddings ? let me know for my daughter. Look forward to seeing you again soon! Continued success ! Dick O,Neil
Ruben, I met you when you played at Harmon's. You might remember me because because I mentioned that I am from San Antonio but am living in Utah working at Hill AFB. Anyway, I just got your new cd "Labor of Shame". One word describes it- SWEET!! Can't wait to get back home and see you and the band in action again! Bueno-bye!
New C.D. ROKS.....
Love your music.

Ruben, I first heard you play at Stonewerks San Antonio in May 06 and must tell you that my friends and I enjoyed every moment of every song you played. You are truly gifted and blessed. Your music brings much joy to me. I truly appreciate you stopping and saying hi to me and my friends during your break. Thank you for being so polite and humble. Having served in the USAF for almost 30 years, I have had the pleasure of listening to musicians all over the world. Your music and your ability to deliver them is something truly unique. I look forward to seeing you perform at Club Luna on June 23rd. Take care bro. Z
David Martinez May 31, 2006 I had the honor of befriending Ruben before the release of In His Hands. Although I have not seen him in quite some time I have closely followed his musical career and have prayed for him to have much success. May God keep you and place you in the spot that he has planned for you. It's been a long time since the days of the Crazy Horse saloon and Red Hot and Blues. Your Brother in Christ. David Martinez
V, Your accoustic show last Saturday night at Rolling Oaks Bar & Grill was simply OUTSTANDING! We had a front row seat and enjoyed every minute of the music!! We love your music. God Bless You, Robert & Theresa Gomez
Keep up the great work!!! God bless you and your family always. Much love and prayers.
Hi Ruben. Glad to hear that the new CD is doing well. Arriving in SAT on Wednesday 24th May so I need to find out where you are playing. Can you help?? Dont want to lose valuable time hunting every bar between SAT and Corpus. looking forward to hearing some great music again.its been too long but I said I would make it back. let me know, I would hate to miss the best music in Texas. Best wishes, God Bless you and your family.always Brit Chris
Dear Ruben, Happy birthday from Germany. Your fans Runi and Raphael are always thinking of you. Will meet you soon sometime and bring chocolate again. Take care Lots of Love Ru and Ra

Ruben V, I didn't know about you until my friend Christina hooked me up with your music. All started because I told her I am Stevie Ray V fan. I listed to some of your music..let me tell you...don't you ever lose whatever inspires you man. Awesome!
Hello V,Saw you at Harmons BBQ,thought you follow in the footsteps of Carlos Santana to tell you the truth and many more great artists...you will go a long way in life ..Have a sweet life my friend...Cher
hey bro...out of all of us musicians i knew you would be the man..say hi to my other 2 brothers and mom and pops...god bless you and your family...bert buitron
"We Can Always Use a Chick in The Band!" ... Classic Great Day SA Quote. See you tonight at Rolling Oaks Sports Bar & Grill.
Good luck manana at Rolling Oaks... T-r-o-u----b-l-e-...She's trouble!!
Wow Ruben, you have done it again! Ever since I picked up “Labor of Shame” at the awesome fan appreciation gig at Rolling Oaks (please give them a big thanks!), I can’t get this disk out of my player, or out of my head. The first night I met you four and a half years ago I bought Let Me In, and as much as I love all your recordings, it has always remained my favorite. But this one is going to give it a real run. Somehow, you have captured much of the electricity of one of your live shows on disc. I can actually see you and “Big O” dueling back and forth like you do on stage. Todos Reunidos may be the best song you have ever recorded. And knowing how much I love Close the Door you know what a compliment that is. Now I just have to see you do it live with the band, since you were only acoustic at the Rolling Oaks gig. See you soon. God Bless.
Hubby and I were at your release party at Rolling Oaks and I was impressed by your love of Jesus Christ and your actual praising and singing his glory during your concert....WOW....I raised my hands along with other Christians that were present.....impressing...you are blessed....stell
we just started seeing you at the cove 4/8. its rare to see somebody play with such passion! truely an inspiration. hope we see you and the band often.

Ruben, I've caught your act a few times over the years and enjoyed your music. A friend of mine, Kevin Hernandez, used to play drums for you some years back. I have been playing drums for 30 years. I know you have a drummer currently, but if you are ever in need of a drummer-I'm your man. Check out my musical bio at: http://www.shaunhedgepeth.com Peace, Shaun F. Hedgepeth
