Hugh and Simon, Bucerias’ beloved hosts and creators of the North Shore’s ‘mecca’ of quality food and entertainment continue their winning season of hit shows! Their nightly events have exceeded all expectations as they provide outstanding food and entertainment packages.
Where else can you find a scrumptious, 4 course meal, efficiently served to you in a pleasant open-air setting, followed by a variety of world-class entertainment? This season, Luna Lounge has sold-out the majority of their shows ranging from familiar tribute artists to the avante garde, cutting-edge talents of Well-Strung and Luna Rumba.
This past week, four very uniquely entertaining shows appeared at Luna Lounge. On Thursday night, Will Chalmers, brought his exciting Neil Diamond Tribute show to the stage. He had the audience ‘in the palm of his hand’ from the ‘get go.’ With the look and exact singing and performing style of the ‘legend,’ Will led us through our Neil Diamond favorites with his incredible vocals, perfect stage presence and a sexy twinkle in his eye the whole performance.
We were all enjoying the songs that reminded us of one of our favorite singers. I’d forgotten how many Neil Diamond songs that I truly loved, like – Solitary Man, Hello Again, Longfellow Seranade, Red Red Wine, Song Sung Blue, Turn On Your Heart Light, Kentucky Woman, Rebel in Blue Jeans, Cracklin Rose, Sweet Caroline and my personal favorite, September Morn’. With the look, style and voice of the music legend, Will Chalmers was Neil Diamond in our hearts and minds on Thursday night.
On Friday night, Miss Conception Goes to The Movies, featured songs, creative scenes and amazing costumes from The Wizard of Oz, Chicago (the musical), The Bride of Frankinstein, Sister Act, Beetlejuice, Pee Wee Herman, Priscilla Queen of the Dessert and Mama Mia. With a breathtaking, original film introduction to the show, I was mesmerized from the start. This show belongs on Broadway and is deserving of the highest rating possible for a show. Every aspect was brilliant and I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so uncontrollably as I did when “Miss Conception” portrayed Pee Wee Herman. That segment alone was worth the price of the ticket.
On Saturday night, the NYC stringed quartet, Well Strung brought us something different in entertainment. With 3 violins and a cello, these four young men sang and played a mash-up of classical and modern songs. Having performed on late night television and for a President and the Pope, this creative band is rapidly gaining notoriety. With a sold-out crowd, they perform again on the 18th at Luna Lounge.
Finally on Sunday night, A very special Motown Memories Valentine’s Night show was presented by the smooth, sexy and sultry sounds of Dwight Blake. With a voice that imitates and rivals great Motown artists like, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Smokie Robinson, Barry White and others, Dwight Blake is an international singing and recording artist. Accompanying Dwight was Ingrid Ivaldi with her awe-inspiring vocals. Ingrid was not only beautiful and remarkably talented, but stood out as a seasoned performer, bringing her classically trained voice to the popular Motown sound. I have never heard anyone perform the Whitney Houston classic, “I Will Always Love You,” so flawlessly and beautifully. There were tears in my eyes, as I was overwhelmed by beauty of the performance. Both Dwight and Ingrid, most definitely, are artists to watch as they both continues their rise as ‘up and coming’ performers.
In the next few weeks more outstanding Luna Lounge shows are scheduled. Calling all Elvis Presley lovers: Friday, Feb. 19th, Rob Knight presents his, Elvis: The Concert Years, featuring some of our favorite Elvis songs. Rob’s last show at Luna Lounge was sold-out, so get your tickets soon.

This performance will feature songs from her new, critically acclaimed CD, Acoustico II. Her New Year’s Eve show at Luna Lounge was a sold-out hit, so don’t delay in securing your tickets for this extraordinary show.
On Thursday, March 3rd, Canadian singing sensation, Paul Fracassi returns once again to Luna Lounge with his original show, Legends of the 50’s and 60’s, that takes a nostalgic look at the best loved hits of some of music’s most iconic stars.
