ELVIZ MARTINEZ opens his new show, An Evening with Elvis Martinez, Come Fly With Me!, (joined on the piano by musical director Bob Bruneau) on Wednesday April 1st at 7:30 pm at The Red Room. Two more shows will follow on Friday April 10th and again on Friday April 17th at 7:30 pm.
Elviz is most recently known for his co-starring role in the smash hit musical, Forever Plaid, that is currently playing at The Main Stage of Act II Entertainment. Last year, Elviz debuted his first concert at Act II to sold-out, standing room only crowds. As a local Puerto Vallarta entertainer, there is a great deal of interest and appreciation for this talented singer and performer.
Elviz was born in Chiapas and since childhood knew that music was in his veins. He remembers at the age of 6, singing and dancing to the music on the radio and television. At the age of eighteen, Elviz moved to Mexico City to follow his dream of “becoming a professional singer.” He started looking for auditions but things moved slowly for him at the beginning.
Elviz started working as an Office Assistant, and on the weekends sang at different events. After only achieving a little success with his singing in Mexico City and at the encouragement of his family, he made the big decision to go back to school. So at the age of 23, Elviz returned to school and graduated with a degree in administration from the University of Guadalajara.
But his love for music never left Elviz Martinez. His family and friends always encouraged him to sing at their parties, bars and other events.
Three years ago, a good friend invited Elviz to be a part of The Men’s Chorus of Puerto Vallarta. It was that decision to join the chorus that restarted his musical career.
Since joining The Men’s Chorus, he has been invited to sing at different venues throughout Puerto Vallarta. Two years ago, he was invited to join the second season of Bedazzled Broadway which further boosted his notoriety as an extraordinary musical theater entertainer.
These accomplishments led people to ask him when he would do his own show in Puerto Vallarta. He would reply, ¨Well, I really don’t know!
But last year was finally the year that Elviz performed his first solo show at Garbo’s Bar in Zona Romantica. This year, Danny Mininni, owner/producer at Act II Entertainment, invited Elviz to do some shows at The Red Room. Elviz views this as a great opportunity to continue to reach out to Puerto Vallarta audiences with his music.
Currently, co-starring in the successful musical, Forever Plaid, at The Main Stage, Act II Entertainment, Puerto Vallarta audiences are becoming familiar with Elviz’s incredible singing and performing skills. It’s fantastic to see one of our local entertainers climb the ladder of artistic success right before our eyes!
So if you haven’t seen, Forever Plaid there are still a few more performances to catch over the next week. And be sure to see, An Evening with Elviz Martinez, Come Fly With Me! at The Red Room on April 1st, 10th and 17th at 7:30 pm.
In Elviz’s own words, “I don’t know exactly where the music is going to take me, but for sure I want to sing until I take my last breath, God willing.”
ACT II Entertainment and The Red Room are located on the corner of Insurgentes and Basilio Badillo on the South side of Puerto Vallarta. Tickets are now on sale at the STAGES box office or online at VallartaTickets.com.
