Bucerķas, Nayarit, Mexico - The Palm Cabaret and Bar in Zona Romantica has been bringing top musical acts to Vallarta for 17 years, and this season they have expanded their Cabaret outreach to the town of Bucerķas. With seating for 80, new sound and lighting along with a remodeled interior, they are off to a good start, as they begin their first season on the North Shore.
On Tuesday, I met the owners, Gustavo and Adriana, who are committed to reaching out to the tourists and residents of our community. They plan to bring more great music to the North Shore all season long. Amy Armstrong, one of the top performers at The Palm Cabaret Puerto Vallarta, is providing her creative leadership this season at both venues.
This week, Amy began her regular Tuesday night show at The Palm Bucerķas, and was joined by Luis and Andrea of 'Bohemia Viva' fame. Having all performed together at The Palm Puerto Vallarta in years past, these 3 were extraordinary with their amazing vocals, totally in sync tight harmonies, timing and stage presence. Luis was magnificent on the acoustic guitar and provided a simple, yet powerful accompaniment for the singing.
Luis and Andrea, a couple from Argentina, are fantastically talented! They have demonstrated a strong commitment to their craft and are now one of the top musical acts at The Palm Cabaret in Puerto Vallarta, as well as branching out into other international venues. They are truly great people who communicate their music in the most exciting and original way.
On Tuesday, we enjoyed songs like, Try by Pink, Yesterday and Come Together by the Beatles, All of Me, Stand By Me, Hotel California, Superstar by the Carpenters, All About That Bass and even a twist on Brittany Spear's Hit Me Baby One More Time and many more! Amy is known for her over-the-top hilarious comments and she had some great zingers that night. Luis and Andrea added some drama, dance and great musicianship to the mix as well.
This new venue has a lot going for it. There's good lighting and sound, an attentive and committed staff, professional musicians and attractive pricing. The musical acts are top Cabaret/Night Club acts currently performing in Puerto Vallarta, but drawn from talent world-wide. These are an extremely talented, creative bunch of people that provide an original, satisfying evening of entertainment.
Also, when you consider that it takes most of us at least an hour each way to drive into Old Town (from Bucerķas) to see Cabaret entertainment, we can thank our lucky stars that they are now bringing it out here to the North Shore.
On Tuesday, The Palm Bucerķas shared a fantastic show with our community. As Amy, Luis and Andrea finished their last song, the audience erupted into cheers, clapping and 2 standing ovations. These delightful entertainers indulged us with a final encore of the favorite, Time After Time.
I, for one, will be back on another Tuesday night to hear, "Amy Armstrong and Friends." Amy will continue to bring special guest performers to The Palm Bucerķas for her Tuesday night shows. Kim Kuzma with Piel Canela will be returning for more shows this season and Gypsy Rumba will make regular appearances as well, just to name a few!
