World-class jazz musicians are returning to the Paradise Community Center Stage in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, for a series of top-notch high-energy concerts.
With sold-out concerts last year that had the audience cheering throughout their mind blowing numbers, the world-class "Banderas Bay Jazz AllStars" return to Puerto Vallarta's Paradise Stage at 8:00 pm on Friday, November 30.
Popular guitarist and vocalist, Garry Carson says, "The BBJA's are an extremely 'tight' and innovative group, with a crowd pleasing program of jazz standards and original pieces. While each member is a virtuoso in his own right, they play with a collective joy and generosity that make their show a delight."
"We go to Jazz clubs in New York all the time," says Mary and Bob Fitzgerald. "If these musicians came to 'The Big Apple,' they'd sell out!"
In his review of this show, Dave Ganapoler says, "If you haven’t caught the Bandaras Bay Jazz AllStars, you are missing some of the greatest jazz musicians on the continent. I'm not exaggerating! These guys are all world class musicians and their bios go on and on. Their energy will blow you away! They will literally have you holding your breath through their solos!"
