Dwight Blake and The Groove Brothers sold-out final concert of the season

International recording artist and singer, Dwight Blake and The Groove Brothers, performed a sold-out show in their final concert of the season, Saturday, March 24th at Luna Lounge Bucerias. As an R&B artist, Dwight has continued to draw big crowds around the Bay, whenever he performs. With a wide vocal range and a smooth, sexy, sultry voice, Dwight loves to communicate the music of top artists like, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, Barry White, Lou Rawls, Sade, Bruno Mars, Sam Smith, Luther Vandross and Earth Wind and Fire.

From the moment that Dwight entered the room and sang his way to the stage, we were treated to a spectacular evening of Jazz, Soul and R&B smoothly delivered by a top, international, musical headliner. With exceptionally good vocals and an entertaining stage presence, Dwight once again delivered a superb show! His band was phenomenal, with Danny on bass, Andres on keyboards, Mimi on lead guitar and Gary on drums.

Dwight began his musical career as a Cabaret artist at international resorts and on cruise ships and quickly rose up through the ranks, becoming a major headliner.

He calls Puerto Vallarta home, but continues to tour the world as an extraordinarily accomplished singer and musician. From cruise ships to large arenas, Dwight is always in high demand as an artist!

Last Saturday’s performance at Luna Lounge was the first opportunity that many of us have had to hear Dwight with his new band. We were not disappointed. The show was first-class and Dwight and the band entertained us with each and every song they delivered!

Dwight and The Groove Brothers opened with the sexy Sade favorite, “Sweetest Taboo.” We loved the groovy, Al Greene number, “Let’s Stay Together,” that followed. We were then treated to the Etta James classis, “I’d Rather Go Blind.” Dwight and the band also did the Syro Gyro version of the Bill Wither’s song, “Just the Two of Us,” with a little audience participation as well!

He sang the contemporary, Charlie Puth hit, “Suffer,” which is a vocally challenging number and performed it to perfection! Next he presented the Spanish song by Chayenne, “Me Enamore De Ti ”(in English, “I Fell and Love With You”) and then treated us to his original and very creative version of “Besame Mucho.”

The Stevie Wonder classic, “My Cheri Amour,” was a feel-good favorite and he finished the first set with the Bruno Mar’s hit, “Versace on The Floor,” to the audience’s delight!

The second set began with another Sade hit, “Smooth Operator.” We then heard Bill Wither’s, “Ain’t No Sunshine.” The band took turns with astonishing instrumental solos and added a reggae theme to the song.

Next, Dwight sang the Michael Buble version of “Mrs. Jones,” with his smooth, sultry voice. We got our groove on with Lou Rawls, “Lady Love” and the Barry White favorite, “Can’t Get Enough of Your Love Baby.”

Delivering another contemporary hit, Dwight sang Sam Smith’s, “I’m Not the Only One.” He then invited a few guys up on stage to be part of The Temptations as he crooned to the hit “My Girl.” One of guys hijacked the microphone halfway through the song and finished it to everyone’s delight! It was one of those unplanned, extremely funny moments on stage and Dwight was a great sport about it!

The final songs of the night were, “Unchained Melody,” made famous by Roy Orbison,
“Never Too Much of Your Love Baby,” by Luther Vandross and the John Legend favorite, “All of Me.” Every song was breathtaking and mesmerizing!

With a standing ovation and loud applause, Dwight and the band were persuaded to do an encore number and treated us to the Bruno Mar’s hit, “Treasure”

What a magnificent evening of entertainment from Dwight and The Groove Band! We look forward to seeing them in the future for more stunning performances! For more information about Dwight Blake and his new Motown CD and his upcoming performances, go to www.dwightblake.com.
