Review: ‘Amy Armstrong and The Hitmen’ score big in Bucerias
Amy Armstrong has been entertaining Puerto Vallarta audiences at The Palm Cabaret for over a decade. She is a unique mix of standup comedian and cabaret singer. On Saturday night, she took her show to the North Shore for a sold out performance of ‘Amy Armstrong and The Hitmen,’ at the Luna Lounge.
As an entertainment writer for three of the local papers, I get to see a lot of shows each season. Amy’s performance on Saturday was one of the best I’ve seen in my years of writing promos and reviews. The audience absolutely roared with laughter at the ‘off the cuff’ comedy that flowed from Amy throughout the show. All eyes were on the stage and people were totally loving the performance.
Amy sang a nice mix of popular music as her backup group, ‘The Hitmen,’ (Tom, Matt and Philip from St. Louis) harmonized and played their guitars. There was lots of banter and fun on the stage that drew the audience in. Amy’s incredible voice mesmerized us as she belted out those fabulous tunes, injecting humor between each song. We heard music from Journey, Van Morrison, James Taylor, Tracy Chapman, Lorde, Bruce Springsteen and more!
The comedy was perfectly delivered and the songs were phenomenal. The evening was a totally satisfying and magical ‘live music’ experience.
‘Amy Armstrong and The Hitmen’ are playing together for a limited engagement at The Palm Cabaret on Jan. 30 & 31 and Feb. 2, 3, 4 and 7.
