Luna Lounge in Bucerias has saved some of its best dinner/shows for the month of March. Last week, North Shore audiences were treated to two, fine performances.
On Thursday night, Dave LaFame, brought the glamour, excitement and sizzle of English, heart throb, Tom Jones to the Luna Lounge stage. In This is Tom Jones, Dave charmingly portrayed one of entertainment’s biggest musical stars! Dave stayed in character as Tom Jones throughout his performance and we enjoyed his great stories and songs like, “The Green Green Grass of Home,” “What’s New Pussy Cat?”and “Love is Like Candy on a Shelf.” With superb vocals, an authentic English accent, an unbuttoned shirt with flashy jewelry, a curly head of hair and a sexy, teasing style, Dave was convincing as the alluring Tom Jones.
On Friday night, Frank Rondell performed songs from his show, RAY – A tribute to Ray Charles. Portraying one of the greatest entertainers of the 20th century, Frank not only sang like Ray Charles, but exemplified him in every way with the look, movement and the voice!
During the first half of the show, we heard many Ray Charles’ classics like, “Let the Good Times Roll,” “I’m Busted,” “The Mess Around,” “Unchain My Heart,” “Hit the Road Jack,” “I Can’t Stop Loving You,” “Rock Me Baby,” “Georgia” and “I’ve Got A Woman.” Dave LaFame as Tom Jones joined him and added his talents to the evening’s entertainment.
After an intermission, Annette Lafond took the stage and performed songs from her tribute show, Shania Live. She began with, “I Feel Like A Woman” and sang many other Shania favorites, like ” Honey I’m Home,” “Gone and Done It,” “Still the One,” “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?” and “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” just to name a few. One of the best moments of the show was when Annette and her husband, Richard, together sang , “From This Moment.” Their incredible duet moved us all!
This was another wonderful performance by the multi-talented, Annette Lafond, as ‘Shania Twain.’
Coming up tonight at Lounge Lounge will be the highly acclaimed show, Rocky Mountain High, The Music of John Denver, featuring Paul Aleman and Renee Armand. This extraordinary, LIVE, performance is scheduled for 1 NIGHT ONLY on Friday, March 18th, 2016. The show has been a hit worldwide and features two incredible voices with guitar accompaniment.
Paul and Renee (a John Denver band member who performed with John for 6 years and who appeared on the DVD “Thank God I’m A Country Boy” and “Rocky Mountain High”) together present the incredible music and wonderful background stories of John Denver. You’ll hear songs like, “Rocky Mountain High,” “Annie’s Song,” “Leaving on a Jet Plane,” “Back Home Again,” and many many more of John Denver’s hit songs.
Renee also sang the Academy Award winning song “The Morning After” from the movie The Poseidon Adventure and wrote the song “One Day In Your Life” recorded by Michael Jackson.
As an ALL LIVE tribute, this show provides a musical performance of the highest quality. I LOVE this show and recommend it as one of the BEST! Rediscover the beautiful and heartfelt music of legendary songwriter/musician, John Denver!
