Now the Music Begins

It’s finally October when everything begins to wake up in Puerto Vallarta. Hopefully, we have weathered all the storms of the season and survived.
On October 12, Arancha at Babel Bar on the River Cuale will celebrate Día de la Raza with a super program that will stimulate the artistic as well as partying regions of your brains!
The festivities will begin at noon and include new music from many of our favorites including the fiery flamenco-inspired and often original music by Tatewari, the easy jazzy and troubadour style of Oscar Terrazas and Raul Simental, Mexican classics and gypsy rumba by Zoe y Leon, flamenco and Argentine music by La Boquita and the exotic Mediterranean and Jazz Manouche of the innovative and multi-talented Moruno. If this is anything like last year, which it is bound to be, it will knock your socks off!  Go Babel Bar!  Off to a fresh new season!
Not to be left behind, La Cruz de Huanacaxtle will be celebrating with Alfredo and MariChuy Jimenez at the opening of the new incarnation of their Tree House Bar and Grill on October 19. They have been busy building in their new location right next door to the old one for several months now and are ready to Rock n Roll! Kicking off the festivities with Cheko Ruiz and his band, they will continue throughout the evening with popular local groups, including Tatewari. This will start off an exciting season of music in La Cruz for which Alfredo has been scouting great entertainment all summer long. MariChuy is sure to offer her incredible barbecued ribs to accompany your favorite beverages!
The big venues will pick up their wonderful entertainment in November. Watch for the exciting Gypsy Rumba/Latin Fusion band Media Luna’s return to Incanto with their new inspirations and also for flamenco group Tatewari, fresh in from their Western Canada tour, with special guest songstress Perla Alarcón. These extremely popular and very unique bands will perform alternating Tuesday evenings at Incanto’s Cabaret Theater beginning November 5, bringing us the creative products of their summer activities. We are definitely in for a treat!
Fernando Huerta and his talented group Piel Canela will be returning to the Palm for a new season on October 22. They will also be featured at the Palm’s charity event for the children of Refugio Infantil of Santa Esperanza on the evening of November 18, along with the Palm’s star-studded cast for the season.
So put on your festive outfits and foot-tapping shoes and get ready for some exciting days and evenings, it’s time to party!
