Tuesdays may never be the same, as Sylvie Scopazzo and Jorge Hernandez of The Zippers band continue their weekly duo show of classic rock in Incanto’s popular piano bar. Sylvie has often been likened to jazz great Diana Krall and rocker Chrissie Hynde of the popular 80’s band The Pretenders. Her rich, uninhibited vocals, accompanied by the talented Jorge on electric guitar and backup vocals, create an evening of soulful rock and jazz. Born in The South of France, Sylvie has been singing since a young age and was drawn to ballads and rock classics. She started the band The Zippers in Vallarta in 2005, and their popularity continues today. Her day jobs have included working with children with special needs and most recently as a tour arranger featuring power-walking and hiking.
Originally from Guadalajara, Jorge Hernandez has been playing guitar for over 20 years, having earned a degree in music at the University of Guadalajara. A single dad of a 5 year-old son, Jorge balances his time between home and a sales job during the day, and playing music at night. His musical influences include Bossa Nova, Lounge and Classic Rock. Together, he and Sylvie rock the house to packed houses featuring everything from Elvis to Sonny and Cher, and a blend of 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s classic rock. Sylvie and Jorge play Tuesdays in the piano bar (except July 4 &11) starting at 8pm. No cover.
