Hector Saldana

Lead vocals, rhythm guitar, harmonica. Hector is the chief songwriter and co-founder of The Krayolas. He wrote some of The Krayolas most popular songs "All I Do Is Try," "Aw Tonight," "Sometime," "Alamo Dragway," "Rhymes of Tomorrow" and "I Just Wanna Be With You (All the Time)" when he was 17-years-old. His newest songs, "La Conquistadora" and "Alex," are fast becoming favorites and rate among his best. The "K" in Krayolas comes from his favorite group, The Kinks.

David Saldana

Vocals, drums, percussion, keyboards. David is lead singer and co-writer of hits such as "Sunny Day," "Happy Go Lucky" and "Catherine." He formed the band with his older brother in 1975 and started playing nightclubs when he was 16-years-old. That's David dueting with Hector on the Augie Meyers-penned "We've Got a Secret (We Will Never Tell)." In concert, the ballad spotlight falls on him during "I've Wished You Well," which he performs solo on piano.
