"I seriously believe that the intense and complex technical demands placed on the keyboard chair by Weird Al's Megashow can only be met by Kurzweil. No other keyboard can approach Kurzweil for its rich internal sounds and nothing else on the market can match its power and depth as the ultimate keyboard controller. As I've stated before, "I love and am forever loyal to Kurzweil".
-Rubén Valtierra, keyboardist/writer/producer
After leading the very popular funk/fusion group Rush Hour for many years, Rubén moved to L.A. Soon after arriving, he was playing, recording and traveling the world with members of groups such as Santana, Aretha Franklin, Tom Jones, Natalie Cole, Tower of Power, Chick Corea, Elton John, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and others. After International tours with rock legend Glenn Hughes/Deep Purple and blues legend Charlie Musselwhite, Rubén found himself touring and recording with Rock/comedy legend "Weird Al" Yankovic.
