 Quote from legendary, Platinum record winning drummer, Merel Bregante:


Sarah (Pierce) and I went to see the Paula Russell Band play last night. A really fun gig. Dancers

under the Super Moon. Paula, Ernie Durawa, John Russell, John X Reed, Bill Starrett.

All-star band behind a wonderful singer. If you get a chance, go see Paula perform.

Well worth the effort. Great old country music being honored as it should be. Yea...Paula!!!”

" The Paula Russell Band is Fantastic! No matter the age of the audience, this band delights all

with Classics that are meaningful as well as fun! Paula has an amazing voice. Everyone at our

party loved and complimented the band."  Judge Brandy Mueller


 "As soon as we heard the Paula Russell Band we knew they were our 'dream Texas wedding band.' They learned 2 special songs

for us, arrived early, set up their own sound, dressed up for us & played wonderful danceable music all night.” Brian & Anna Peterson 


"I booked the Paula Russell Band for a Private Corporate Function at the iconic Driskill Hotel.

I loved everything about working with these pros! It was a joy to listen to them and yet they never over-powered the guests who

enjoyed being able to socialize as well as hear a great singer." Maggie Gallant
