Kim Kuzma & Piel Canela Continue to Entertain Vallarta

January 23, 2017

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Chanteuse Kim Kuzma first landed on the entertainment scene in Puerto Vallarta in 2005. She has returned every winter, to perform at various clubs and venues throughout this seaside town that offers culture, music and a laid back attitude.

Kim Kuzma has performed for many an audience not only here in Puerto Vallarta, but throughout Canada, the United States and Europe for more than a decade. For those of you who may have heard Kim perform elsewhere, you are in for an absolute treat, hearing her with the band, Piel Canela, a group of incredible musicians!

Kim's stellar vocals truly shine when paired with the intimacy of live instruments, whether it be a haunting ballad or a driving beat with a Latin flair.

As a result of her many hours of promoting shows, singing for fund raisers and performing on various stages, Kim has become a well-known part of the music scene here. After years at Club Maņana, Bite Me Beach Club, The Red Room and 'you name it,' she has brought her singing and performing talents back to The Palm Cabaret for a second year running. Kim's shows are a big 'draw' in Vallarta and her shows bring in high ticket sales year after year. #1 Best ticket sales in 2013 and 2014.

Perhaps the most notable change in what Kim offers her audiences came in 2011 when, upon the advice of fellow songstress, Joelle Rabu, she decided to work again with live musicians. Walking through the Farmers' Market on Basilio Badillo one day, she heard the incredible guitarist, Eduardo Leon, and the rest is history. She put together an impressive group of musicians and the band just keeps evolving and becoming even more amazing as the years go by.

Now celebrating their 6th season, this year's shows consist of Kim being backed by extremely talented musicians from all parts of Mexico. The band includes: Eduardo Leon on Lead Guitar/Vocals, Fernando Gonzalez on Rhythm Guitar/Vocals, Roberto Falcon on Bass and newest band member, master musician, Luis Rascon on Percussion/Bass/Cello/Vocals.

Kim Kuzma and Piel Canela continue to receive stellar reviews and they love entertaining audiences with their unique musical adaptations, along with a blend of new and old songs creating unique 'mash ups' with Spanish favorites. Their version of "Me and Mrs. Jones," in both English and Spanish, is outstanding. This season, they have added some songs from Adele, Dusty Springfield, the Beatles, the Bee Gees and Fleetwood Mac. This music has been masterfully arranged, leading to some wonderful new surprises! The band continues to inspire audiences with both encore and new mash ups each and every performance!

Every Tuesday night at 7 pm, Kim and the band perform their Kim Kuzma and Piel Canela Show at The Palm Cabaret and Bar in Old Town. Every Thursday at 7 pm, Kim and the band perform The 70's Show. She describes this show as "Donna Summer meets The Gypsy Kings." It's music that makes you happy and remember that special era!

Kim has also created Celebrating the Music of Annie Lennox Part II to be performed on February 3rd and 4th at 7 pm, February 11th at 9:30 pm and March 1st at 4 pm. Kim and Jean-Guy Comeau are excited to be doing this show that builds on Kim's Annie Lennox show of past years.
