Apple Valley Review
From rags to almost riches is the story so far for the Apple Valley-based family band Villa 5. The group’s five members began performing together as children despite being so poor their Mexican immigrant parents could only afford to buy them beat up old instruments.
Still running on determination and a dream, the quintet seems to finally be on their way to making it big after being signed to its first recording contract in January by the Los Angeles-based label, Copeland International Arts (C.I.A.).
