A Review: Kim Kuzma & Piel Canela in the ‘70’s Show’

A Review: Kim Kuzma & Piel Canela in the ‘70’s Show’

March 27, 2018

Kim Kuzma and Piel Canela have been taking audiences back to the 70’s since debuting their show in January at The Palm. Kim’s performances in Puerto Vallarta have been a big draw for over a dozen years and her reputation as one of Vallarta’s premiere songstress’ is well established.

For those who are new to Puerto Vallarta and haven’t heard of Kim Kuzma, she is an award winning recording artist and vocalist from British Columbia, Canada who has had amazing staying power in the music/entertainment biz over the years. First and foremost, she is a creative, professionally trained musician with a remarkable vocal range and an electrifying performer, as well.

A few years ago, Kim decided to leave the backtracks behind and work with a ‘live’ band again. This decision has made her popularity skyrocket, as people flock to her performances over and over again! Joining her for all her shows this season is the musical group, Piel Canela, consisting of Eduardo Leon on lead guitar, Fernando Gonzalez on rhythm guitar, Luis Rascon on bass, percussion and cello and newest member, Gary Flores on percussion.

Kim Kuzma is the consummate entertainer and she proved it once again last Thursday night. As her band started their musical introduction, Kim jumped on stage with her famous sass and exuberance! She was gorgeous with her “Cher-style hair, glitter eye makeup and silver sequined disco outfit. All eyes were fixed on stage as Kim opened the show with a favorite Doobie Brother’s tune, “Long Train Running.”

With a video background that matched the theme of the 70’s, and a band that is worthy of this performer, Kim thrilled us over and over again with her voice and stage performance. There are great singers in Puerto Vallarta and there are fantastic performers too, but to find both qualities at the highest professional level, you need look no further than Kim Kuzma. This is why her shows sell out and why she has such a diverse fan base. People across-the-broad, appreciate the talent that Kim and the boys bring to the stage!

We heard new musical mash-ups (medleys) of 70’s hits throughout the night. From Chaka Khan to Abba to Earth, Wind and Fire and many more, we loved the fabulous renditions of some of our favorite music, performed to perfection by Kim and the boys. Eduardo Leon was a standout favorite with his breathtaking guitar solos!

Kim hit the stage for her second set, with blond hair, a feathered headpiece and a beautiful blue and peach disco outfit, singing a medley of “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You” and “I Go to Rio.” This ‘feel good’ show continued with lots of humor and stories from Kim and along with an aerobic stage performance that was worthy of the highest praise. We continued to hear high energy songs like, “Turn the Beat Around,” which kept us wanting more!

With her signature dance moves and kicks, all eyes were on the show as we listened to Kim’s soaring vocals and the amazing sounds of Piel Canela.

Kim brought a pre-teen, girl on stage that she knew and they danced to “I Will Survive.” It was a beautiful moment that I’m sure Isabella will never forget.

The show concluded with an enthusiastic, standing ovation that the audience gladly gave to show how much they loved the performance.

Kim has just released her new CD, ‘VIVAN LOS 70’s.’ Think ‘Donna Summer meets The Gipsy Kings. The CD was recorded here in Puerto Vallarta last April with Paolo Uccelli, mixed by Rigo Mora and final post production in San Antonio, TX by Grammy Award winner for Sound Engineering, Michael Anthony Esparza. With song selections, like ‘MacArthur Park’, ‘I’m Not In Love’ and ‘Could It Be Magic,’ I loved the CD and it includes many of the songs from the show. The CD along with download cards are available at Kim’s shows or on iTunes.

There is only one more ‘70’s Show’ left this season. Don’t miss it on Thursday, March 29th at 7pm at The Palm Cabaret. There is also one ‘Evolution Show’ (Kim’s musical journey) scheduled for Tuesday, March 27th at 7pm. For information about these shows go to www.thepalmcabaret.com.

Coming up on Saturday, April 14th, at 7pm, Coco’s Kitchen will present ‘Dinner and A Show’ with Kim and Piel Canela. For tickets call 322-223-0373 or email the restaurant at: info.cocoskitchen@gmail.com

There have been 2 shows added to the schedule. ‘Piel Canel with Kim Kuzma’ will be featured on Wednesday, March 28th at 9:30pm and on Friday, March 30th at 7pm at The Palm Cabaret.

WestJet launches new Mexico City flights

WestJet launches new Mexico City flights

WestJet will operate up to 37 daily flights to Mexico.

WestJet will operate up to 37 daily flights to Mexico.

Non-stop service offered to Mexico City from Calgary, Vancouver

The Canadian carrier WestJet is now offering non-stop flights to Mexico City from the Canadian cities of Calgary and Vancouver.

To begin with, the Calgary flight will operate four times a week and Vancouver three. But by the end of April, both flights will operate daily.

“The new service will support the growth of tourism, trade and investment, while strengthening the cultural ties and relationships between our two jurisdictions,” said the Alberta minister of culture and tourism.

The Canadian ambassador to Mexico congratulated the carrier for its maiden flight, remarking that “Mexico is a key partner and ally for Canada.”

Pierre Alarie also said that in the first year following the elimination of the visa requirement for Mexican travelers, there was a 45% increase in Mexican visitors to Canada. “We hope to see this positive trend continue.”

“WestJet is proud to be at the forefront of expanding on vital trade and tourism linkages between Mexico and Canada,” said WestJet president and CEO Ed Sims. “Non-stop, year-round flights from Calgary and Vancouver to Mexico City connect the country to one of the most important major markets in the Americas and expand on growing opportunities for Canada-Mexico tourism.”

WestJet first landed in Mexico in 2007 and now serves 11 cities here from 15 in Canada. With the addition of the two new routes, the carrier will operate up to 37 daily flights during the peak winter period.
