“She was talking to us the whole time and asking about ourselves,” Sundberg said. “She was an absolutely wonderful person, just a nice, nice person. She couldn’t thank us enough.”
The three got the gig through Sundberg’s husband, Rob, a teacher at Sinaloa Middle School and musician who serves as backstage manager and emcee at Uptown shows.
