Estaban, the talented guitarist so famous he needs only one name, is playing tomorrow night at the Mohegan Sun Casino & Resort for a special Valentine's Day engagement. It is rumored that after the show he will be stopping by the Oasis Cafe to take the stage and unleash his controlled passion on the guitar strings for whoever is in attendance.
