The all-male string quartet, Well-Strung, returns to The Palm for a third season with an all new show, Summer Lovin’. This popular and talented group reinvented the boy band genre a few years ago, featuring classical musicians who sing, putting their own spin on the music of Mozart, Vivaldi, Rihanna, Adele, Lady Gaga, and more! Their debut show sold out Joe’s Pub in 2012 in New York, and since then they have played venues all over the world; including The Art House in Provincetown, the Leicester Square Theatre in London, 54 Below in New York, House of Blues in New Orleans, and The Palm Cabaret and Bar in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, just to name a few.
“At the bottom line, each member of Well-Strung is ridiculously talented. All four have wonderful voices, and each is a virtuoso on their chosen string instrument. ” – David Clark, Broadway World
Well-Strung stars first violinist Edmund Bagnell, second violinist Chris Marchant, cellist Daniel Shevlin and violist Trevor Wadleigh. Their new show is directed and co-written by Donna Drake with arrangements by David Levinson. The quartet was formed by producer/co-writer/manager Mark Cortale and Chris Marchant.
When they aren’t appearing on TV, or hobnobbing with The President of the United States, the Pope, presidential candidates, and other notable celebrities, the super-talented (and just as nice) guys from Well-Strung are busy touring and performing, having recently released their their new CD, “POPssical”.
As they have done the past two seasons, because cello’s don’t travel well, The Palm’s Entertainment Director, Tracy Parks, has again arranged to borrow a cello from the Puerto Vallarta Youth Orchestra/School with the assistance of School Director, Daniel Olvera, for their performances. In exchange, the band will present a free workshop for the students at the school. The Palm also donated a clarinet last year, helping to once again bring students and professional musicians together in a unique educational experience for everyone involved. Well-Strung’s popularity in Vallarta continues to soar season after season, so be sure to reserve early. Shows begin on Jan. 31 – Feb. 19.
