Incanto: French Crooner Michel Giglia and Steven Brinberg’s “Simply Barbra”

Michel Giglia is a French vocalist who sings French, Latin and contemporary music with an upbeat, youthful twist. His voice is velvety smooth and his stage presence is mesmerizing. Michel graduated from the École Superieure de Comédie Musicale in Paris, where he refined his vocal, dance and performance skills. He has performed in musical theatre in some of the most recognized venues in Paris, including the Olympia theatre, garnering the recognition of the French press for his performance in Entrée d’artistes, where he sang duets with other notable music artists. He recently relocated to Puerto Vallarta and will be joined by pianist Dennis Crow in the piano bar on Thursdays from 5-7pm beginning Nov. 8. No cover charge.

Making his Incanto debut in December is Vallarta favorite Steven Brinberg starring in his international award-winning hit ‘Simply Barbra’. Steven’s uncanny ability to look and sound just like music icon Barbra Streisand, and other special guest celebrities, has won over audiences for several seasons in Vallarta in the past several years. A two-time MAC and Bistro Award-winner, Steven Brinberg performed with the late Marvin Hamlisch, and for Stephen Sondheim’s birthday concert at the Library of Congress. He has also performed at numerous other venues including Carnegie Hall, and on Broadway in the concert version of Funny Girl with Whoopi Goldberg. ‘Simply Barbra’ has twice toured Australia, New Zealand, and England, ending in a West End run at the Arts and Playhouse Theatres. His CD, ‘Simply Barbra Live in London’, is available on Jay Records. Performances begin December 10-28. Visit Incanto’s website for more information and online tickets available soon.
