As summer approaches our thoughts turn towards travel. Many part time Vallarta residents have already headed home where they will now visit their local shores, lakes and rivers in pleasant summer weather and enjoy friends and family back home so the end of this month marks a dramatic change in the weekly calendars of venues around town.
This week will showcase the last shows of the season by the popular band Media Luna before they head out for summer adventures. San Miguel de Allende will enjoy some concerts as will the area around their own home town, Pachuca, Hidalgo. The group plans to spend some time in Mexico City, sharing in the always creative musical energy of the capital’s youth. A trip to Canada may also be on the horizon before they return to us for next season. We wish them well and will anxiously await their return looking forward to the continually evolving musical innovations of this talented group made up of brothers Jaír and Caleb Cabrera and cousin Gibran Monzalvo Cabrera and their incredible guitars. Their exciting farewell concert at Incanto Cabaret Theater this Thursday, April 18 at 7:00PM is sure to be a winner. (incantovallarta.com for tickets). The group will perform at their usual times Tuesday and Saturday times at Cuates y Cuetes and their last show for the season at Babel Bar on Sunday afternoon, April 21. Be sure to catch them!
Tatewari just gave their last concert performance at Incanto for the season and as I predicted, it was the best yet! With invited guest the beautiful songstress Perla Alarcón they absolutely enchanted the audience. This group of childhood friends from La Cruz de Huanacaxtle share tremendous love and energy as well as their over the top talent! I am certain we will see more of them at Incanto in the Fall. To add to the romantically charged evening there was even a proposal of marriage! Congratulations and much happiness to Sonny and Mariel! Tatewari plans to continue playing fiery flamenco music at Cuates y Cuetes on Wednesday evenings throughout the Summer.
While some of our usual venues will still be providing great music others will close down their entertainment for the summer season. The Palm has finished their season until sometime in the fall while Incanto will probably continue to offer entertainment throughout most of the summer. Babel Bar on the River Cuale plans to continue to offer wonderful musical afternoons and some evenings at their refreshing outdoor setting.
If you are staying here in Mexico for the summer, you might start looking at your maps and explore what new place in Mexico you might like to visit even for a long weekend. The airfares are super comfortable and accommodations reasonable for a long of short getaway! However, there will be plenty to do and lots of music to hear right here at home so put on your party hats and get out and have fun!
