Pianist and singer Jean-Guy Comeau (Jay-Gee) is one of Vallarta’s most versatile musicians and has been performing solo and with other artists in the city’s different venues for the last 15 years.
Jay-Gee’s classical training and teaching career permit him to be at ease in diverse multiple musical styles, passing from Baroque to jazz along with his interest in French and Mexican genres. He has been part of Incanto’s roster of popular entertainers from the very beginning and is currently a vocal coach for the upcoming off-Broadway hit, Naked Boys Singing!
Jay-Gee’s all-new show in the piano bar, ‘Totally Romantico’ includes smooth jazz, light classics, French and Latin favorites and has something for everyone. He will play on Wednesdays from 5-7pm beginning Nov. 7.
