Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Kassiano, one of the most dynamic vocalists to grace the Banderas Bay area, will conduct a one night only performance on Monday, December 10th, at the Vallarta Yacht Club.
Those joining in that evening will be treated to a 90 minute high energy performance that will not only leave you dancing and clapping in the isles but singing to yourself (and others around you) for days after the show.
Jamaican born Kassiano's roots are reggae, meringue, and salsa, but you will also hear some fabulous and unforgettable renditions of Sinatra, Lou Rawls, the Village People, Neil Diamond, and Stevie Wonder. Kassiano will be accompanied by his long time keyboard player and vocalist Julie Murillo.
Born Roger Kassiano Smith in Hanover, Jamaica, he started singing and performing at the age of six. Three years later, he won his first gold medal in the national performing arts festival. This was the genesis of what has been a prolific career as a performing artist, painter, writer, and musician. He has also appeared in two films, "Going to Extremes" with Christopher Walken and "Scam" with Maxi Priest.
He took a 10 year hiatus from touring so he would not have to spend so much time away from his daughter but he is now back and stronger than ever.
He recently recorded under the watchful eye of Carlos Santana producing a delightful blend of Banda with a Jamaican twist. He then returned home to Jamaica to produce his new album "Journeys". His new song "Cuando Cuando" is very popular on the radio stations and he is now in the middle of a promotional tour through Mexico, Central America, the United States, and Europe.
Tickets for this performance will be strictly limited to 150 and will go on sale to the general public starting on November 15th. Seating will be auditorium style on the patio section of the club.
