|Alberto Perez Releases New CD|
From classical music and traditional jazz to new age, rock & roll and rhythm & blues, the live-music scene in Puerto Vallarta and along the shores of Banderas Bay is as diverse as its people, culture, and beauty.
Vallarta boasts a wealth of both local entertainers and musicians from around the world that play for our entertainment - but those in the know can usually be found at La Palapa's beach front bar on Monday and Tuesday nights.
Located on Playa Los Muertos in the heart of the Romantic Zone, La Palapa is one of Vallarta's favorite places to enjoy great food in a casually elegant atmosphere - and live music seven nights a week to enhance the overall dining experience.
As the owner of this successful restaurant, Alberto's goal is for his guests to be happy and to have a good time, so it's only natural for him to spend a few nights a week entertaining his guests with his own silky voice and smooth guitar.
In 2002, with the help of his friends and fellow musicians Oscar Terrazas, Rigoberto Mora and Aaron Carranco, Alberto recorded his first CD, Noches Romanticas, which features some of the songs he's been performing at La Palapa over the last twenty some-odd years, and is available for purchase at his performances.
Noches Romanticas was such a hit that Alberto decided it was time to make a new CD, so in February, he and fellow musicians Memo Suárez, Alexis Guevara Muñoz, Bob Tansen and Carlos Hudson went to Blaine Selkirk's Ancient Sun Studios to record.
The result of their efforts is Noches en La Palapa, a fabulous new CD recorded by some of Puerto Vallarta's very best musicians, who together with friends and fans, celebrated the release of their new CD earlier this week at La Palapa.
Featuring Alberto's beautiful voice, Memo Suárez on percussions, Alexis Guevara Muñoz on guitar, and Bob Tansen and Carlos Hudson on flute, Noches en La Palapa is a collection of sentimental favorites and soulful songs in both Spanish and English that is sure to bring out the romantic in every listener.
