Act II’s popular live musical comedy show, Twist & Shout, was invited to perform at the Spotlight Club in Ajijic last week. Pedro Islas, the show’s creator, who also portrays Tony the Jaguar, commented that it was a magical evening, with much fun and laughter. He said it was especially funny when his partner, Sarah Lee (played by Faride Talamas) was dancing and came down so hard on the floor that her heel fell off of her shoe! The audience thought it was a part of the show and everyone laughed hilariously!
Twist & Shout is performed in English every Saturday evening at Act II and combines a delightful story with lots of jukebox hits from the 50s and 60s, including songs like I Wanna Be Loved By You, Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You, Be My Baby, Lollipop, I Only Want to Be With You, Twist and Shout, and more. Pedro and Faride are professional actors/musicians and have received rave reviews about this show. Everyone agrees that it is definitely a “feel-good” type of show, and is perfect entertainment for anyone who loves rock and roll music!
“Pedro and Faride in the original show Twist and Shout were so amazing. They sang all music from the 50’s and 60’s in a cute story about a finale in a singing competition between the two main characters. They were talented, hilarious, and they had such great chemistry together on stage. Everyone was dancing in their seats to the songs, too!” —Chad S, TripAdvisor
Act II’s Summer Concert Series this week features:
“A Tribute to Led Zeppelin”
Featuring Tequila Rush, one of Vallarta’s premier bands
Thursday, August 1 – 8:00 pm (ONE NIGHT ONLY!)
Led Zeppelin was an English rock band formed in 1968. With heavy, guitar-driven songs such as Black Sabbath and Deep Purple, the Led Zeppelin band became known as one of the originators of heavy metal music. Their musical style had a wide variety of influences, including blues, psychedelia and folk music.
Tequila Rush has been together for 3 years and has a huge following all around the bay. Led Zeppelin is one of their favorite inspirations, and they perform regularly at hotels and restaurants all over Puerto Vallarta. The band performed this show recently to a sold-out audience at the Roxy and received rave reviews. They are excited about performing this tribute once again.
Upcoming local bands featured in the Summer Concert Series include:
Lollipop – August 8
Sal de Mar – August 15
Us Two and the Band – August 22.
