Chicago-based songwriter Stolie is getting ready to pack up and head home to Chicago where she will turn her focus back to performing for children all summer long. After her first successful season singing for grown-ups in Puerto Vallarta, she came back here for a second winter in early November 2016, right after the Cubs won the World Series.
During her first season, Stolie found a home at Que?Pasa, on the west end of Emiliano Zapata, where she performs on Thursday nights and for special holiday events. She also helped the children of the neighborhood prepare for an annual Christmas Eve concert. Stolie will perform her final nights on April 6th and April 13th at 7:30 pm, as well as a special appearance at 2:00 pm on Friday April 7th to kick off the Que?Pasa 14th Anniversary Party.
This season was lit up with a new show called “Simon & Girlfunkel” at Act II Stages’ Red Room Cabaret. Teaming up with Brittany Kingery, who played the part of Art on percussion, the girls heated up the room during four nights of shows ending with standing ovations.
Over the past few months, Stolie has made appearances at other events as well — singing at the River of Art Fest with Brittany, at the 4th annual Riverfest Fundraiser at El Rio BBQ, coaching the kids of Corazon de Niña for the Valentine’s Gala at the Marriott, the St. Patrick’s Day party at Casa Isabel, and every other Wednesday to entertain at Nacho Daddy’s Charity Bingo event to support Pasitos de Luz and Colina Spay and Neuter Clinic. Stolie presented bilingual acoustic music (in Spanish and English) at Mangos Beach Club during their weekend brunches and will perform her final sets here this weekend, Saturday April 8 and Sunday April 9 from 10:00 am - 12:00 noon.
In anticipation of the January 20, 2017 release of her new album, Follow Me, Stolie worked with Tracy Parks at the brand new Incanto Theater in Old Town. Here, she showcased her new tunes on January 28, backed by a band, to a packed house on the second night of the cabaret theater’s opening. She continued showcasing her "acoustic songcraft with a twist" on Monday evenings at Incanto’s upstairs piano bar.
Stolie's final shows of the season will be held on Friday April 14th at Incanto. The night will kick off at 7:00 pm with an encore performance of “Cantautoras: Songwriters in the Round,” during which Stolie will share the stage with local songwriters, Ivette Guadarrama, Niu Curbelo and Sarah en La Luna. “Stolie’s Final Show” will follow at 9:00 pm highlighting some of Stolie’s more memorable moments and songs of the 2016-17 season. Tickets are available for each show as well as a special Semana Santa package price at Incanto Vallarta.
