Got Talent? Participate in the Tropical Version of American Idol at Showcase Vallarta

Todd Ringness - PVM City Paper

January 28, 2013

There is still time to get your act together and maybe you could soon be appearing LIVE on the Paradise Stage! Or maybe you know a talented musician who is in need of a break and could use some exposure.

Either way, Friday, March 1, is the date to mark on your calendar. It's the Vallarta Showcase and it promises to be an exceptional mixture of raw talent and polished professionals.

Paradise Stage manager Todd Ringness explains, "This is an important tradition at our Paradise Community Center." Ringness says their parent charity CompassioNet Impact is all about giving a hand up, versus a hand out. He says this kind of event does just that for local musicians who are struggling to find or expand their audiences.

"Vallarta Showcase is the perfect opportunity for a diamond in the rough, or the accomplished musician who wants to find new fans,” Ringness explains.

But Vallarta Showcase isn't just a tropical version of American Idol. "It's also a chance for professional musicians to share their gifts with our audience, and let them know about upcoming shows or other events they want to publicize," Ringness says. He explains that everyone in attendance is already a fan of good music, and so there is a very good chance they would come to another concert or performance of musicians performing in Vallarta Showcase.

There is no compensation for performers in Vallarta Showcase. Instead, they will be given the opportunity to sell CD's, event tickets, or other promotional merchandise.

Ringness says each performer will receive a meal and beverage as a token of appreciation for their involvement.

He says all proceeds from the ticket sales for Vallarta Showcase go to CompassioNet Impact, a local charity that helps bring social change to the needy in our community through their various outreach programs.

All performers in Vallarta Showcase must be pre-scheduled; this is not an open-mic event. To book your act or for more information, please contact Todd Ringness directly by email at

Tickets for Vallarta Showcase on Friday, March 1st are only 150 pesos in advance or 200 pesos at the door. Doors open at 6:30 pm for purchasing dinner and drinks. Show starts at 8:00 pm.

Visit ParadiseStage to buy tickets online, or visit PCC at 127 Pulpito in Old Town Vallarta, Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 9 am to 4 pm.
