Kim Kuzma, an award winning singer, songwriter and recording artist, first landed on the entertainment scene in Puerto Vallarta in 2005. She has returned every winter, to perform at various clubs and venues throughout the Bandaras Bay area. As a result of her many hours of promoting shows, singing for fundraisers and performing on various stages, Kim has become a well known part of the music scene here.
After years of performing at mostly Puerto Vallarta venues, she is bringing her singing and performing talents to Riveria Nayarit for two performances in February.
Kim and the band will perform their very popular, ‘Acustico’ show at Stage and Forum Theater located at Paseo de la Marina Condominio, El Muelle Locales 11 y 12, Marina Nuevo Vallarta on Thursday, February 19th at 7:30 pm. Tickets are available through vallartatickets.com for this event and more information and directions for the theater can be found at nvstageandforum.com.
The second Riveria Nayarit event will be a dinner/cabaret ‘Acustico’ show at Luna Lounge, Av. Mexico #27, El Centro, Bucerias on Thursday, February 26th at 6:30 pm. Kim Kuzma performed a weekly show at Luna Lounge for 2 seasons, so Bucerias audiences will remember her superb talent. With a scrumptious meal from the grill, Luna Lounge is the perfect dinner/show venue. Tickets can be purchased by telephone at 045 322 889 8391 or by emailing Hugh at [email protected].
For the past two years, Kim Kuzma has been a big ‘draw’ for The Red Room/Act II Stages in Old Town, PV. In fact, her ‘Acustico’ show had the #1 online ticket sales in Puerto Vallarta for 2013-2014 season.
The most notable change in what Kim Kuzma offers her audiences, came in 2011 when upon the advice of fellow songstress, Joelle Rabu, she decided to work again with live musicians. Walking through the Farmer’s Market on Basillo Badillo one day, she heard the incredible guitarist, Eduardo Leon along with Karen Falasz on flute and Enrique Jimenez on drums. The rest is history and their ‘Unplugged’ show has since turned into their popular ‘Acustico’ show.
Their original plan was to have 3 shows to try it out, which has turned into 4 seasons of entertainment. The band now includes Bob Tanson on flute, Roberto Falcon on bass, Enrique Jimenez on drums and Fernando Hernandez on guitar. “Adding Fernando has allowed the band to build on harmonies and gives Eduardo time to focus on his equisite Flamenco style of playing,” Kim explains. She views these band members as her ‘wonderful family of friends’ that have been on an amazing journey together these past few years.
Kim credits the success of the show to the fact that each band member is a talent in their own right. She believes that they all have something to add to the mix. Not only do they rehearse a lot, the band is constantly learning new songs to keep things fresh. Along with their drive and desire to become better, they always make sure to enjoy what they’re doing. Their success can be attributed to their combined talent and years of promotion in PV. Kim’s passion for performing and giving people a relaxed show of humor mixed with music has led to a great evening of entertainment.
An ‘Acustico’ CD naturally followed as the show became more popular and fans wanted a musical ‘keepsake.’ Professionally recorded here in Puerto Vallarta at ProSantana Studios it is an excellent tribute to the wonderful music of the show. You can hear samples on her website www.kimkuzma.com and it’s available on iTunes and www.cdbaby.com.
