THE BIGGEST ENTERTAINMENT VENUE IN THE BAY

Salty Paw Jazz Orchestra

Salty Paw Jazz Orchestra

A Salty Winter

December 3rd at 8:00pm

THE SALTY PAW JAZZ ORCHESTRA, Puerto Vallarta’s First and only youth-based jazz orchestra, will be returning to the Act II Main Stage on Sunday, December 3, 2017, 8 pm for their presentation of A Salty Winter.

Salty Paw Jazz Orchestra

The Salty Paws’ first performance was hela on Act II Main stage and was jam packed with enthusiastic, cheering audiences. These kids are amazing, developing as jazz musicians in leaps and bounds – incredible, considering the group was established only last September!

The "Salty Paw Jazz Orchestra" or "Pata Salada Orquesta de Jazz" is characterized by instrumentation in the style of a Big Band Orchestra. The members mainly consist of young musicians learning jazz improvisation – their definition of jazz encompassing 3 major categories – Swing, Rock and Latin Jazz. While the usual big band consists of saxophone, trumpet, trombone and rhythm section, the Salty Paw Jazz Orchestra includes flutes nad violins as well totaling over 20 members. They have already given several fundraising concerts – at Act II Stages in Puerto Vallarta, The Breakers Beach Club Restaurant and Bar in Bucerias, and Plaza Caracol in Puerto Vallarta, and several presentations at The Jazz Foundation on Puerto Vallarta´s Malecon. They aspire to give concerts in other venues throughout the country.

The whole thing got started when several talented young musicians heard the Puerto Vallarta Big Band whose lead Alto saxophone is founder director Victor Kris. Inspiration struck and a jazz workshop formed. Led by the young, impassioned Founder and Director Victor Kris, it quickly, with the help of Biblioteca Los Mangos and others, evolved into a full jazz ensemble – and expanded beyond the usual jazz instrumentation, and includes violins and flutes adding innovative dimensions to the ensemble. Shortly afterwards, the founding members voted to name the jazz orchestra “Salty Paw” or “Pata Salada,” which means a person from Puerto Vallarta.

Eric Clapton by Cesar Medina

We went to opening night of Cesar's Eric Clapton show and to put it mildly it was AWESOME! If we lived in Vallarta we would be seeing every performance, can't wait until we're back. Cesar is a performer that truly has an amazing gift and enjoys sharing it with everyone.

Saw Rocky Horror, the star's singing made the show

I often check out the early shows at Act II in Puerto Vallarta as my evening entertainment (I'm usually on my own). Tonight's performance of Rocky Horror was a fabulous time,with a particular standout of Gabe Arciniega. His singing was crisp and clear. Every word and movement showed that he really knows the meaning of this show. Of course I was thrilled by the entire cast and performance, as I think was everyone in the audience (Rocky virgins and old pros alike). Usually I wait until the end of my trip to post reviews but I would hate for people to miss this show. Many of the cast are known locally and have their fans,so I won't go through the performers individually, except to say that I Ioved the latin Rocky and Brad really rocked those tighty whities. Thank you everyone for such a fun time.

Us Two Daniel and Noemi

We went to see the 2017 season opener of “Us Two” Daniel and Noemi and the Band at the Red Room.
What an incredible show performed in a beautiful intimate setting. Talent, energy, emotion and fun all in one fantastic package.
Who needs to go to Las Vegas when one can see a show of this quality right in the heart of “Old Town” Puerto Vallarta!
This show is “must do” for everyone visiting this beautiful city; the show will leave you amazed and feeling “up”.

Power Duo Performs at Act II Red Room

"Us Two" is a powerhouse when it comes to music. Greatly talented and personable, the duo offers hits from the 80's and 90's with an occasional nod to current hits. The Red Room itself has been renovated and is even more delightful.

Rocky Horror Picture Show

My husband and I with friends went out to see the opening night of the Rocky horror picture show at Act II entertainment on the main stage. From the moment that show opened it was obvious that it was going to be a stunner. I've seen the show before in larger venues and in bigger cities, but this show was magnificent. The set design was one of the best I've seen, the actors and singers and dancers captured their roles perfectly. The audience was charged, clapping, whooping it up, laughing in the whole evening was just one great big barrel of fun. Act II entertainment, with the red room and the main stage and the lovely Encore bar is one of the best entertainment venues in Puerto Vallarta. I've seen many shows there and I have never been disappointed. I have my favorite performers as most people do, and I love the intimacy of the red room. And the main stage, well, it just keeps getting better and better and better.

Opening night Rocky Horror Show

This has to be one of the most fantastic set designs I've seen yet from Act2 entertainment! Given the popularity of this production, the producers have found a way to bring innovation and quality to a level unseen outside of big budget productions. The level of detail and visual effects are sure to please. Combine that with great coryography and costume design, the show wows the audience and entices you to be immersed into the enchanting time warp of Frankenfurter. Truely a show not to be missed! Way to go PV! Was a blast!

Diana Valeria Villamonte

Diana Valeria Villamonte took Puerto Vallarta by storm last night. And this is one storm we can hope will never go away. Run do not walk to see her next show at the Red Room next Tuesday at 730. No doubt it will quickly be sold out.

I've been struggling to write something to capture the mood of the evening… Probably my most important contribution to this will be to say that I saw it last week (with friends) and I'm going next week (with other friends)! My husband, Gholi, loves the music and said, "When can we go again?

TRINITY!

My husband and I just attended a cabaret at Act II. We were so excited to get to see three beautiful young ladies in the debut of "TRINITY!" This show featured the last three winners of the Voice of Vallarta singing competition, and they were great! I’m so excited to find such great talent here in Puerto Vallarta, and will definitely go back to Act II on my next trip!

"Spotlight on Vallarta" Summer Series at Act II Entertainment

As a full-time resident of Puerto Vallarta, I always look for things to do in the summer! Last night, my husband and I had the opportunity to see the fabulous first Thursday night show of Act II's "Spotlight on Vallarta" Summer Series! Danny Mininni, owner of Act II, told us that the series is designed to recognize and promote local talent during the summer season. So, local resident, Gabe Arcineaga, put on a show that could easily be rival any cabaret show in the U.S! Gabe is already a seasoned actor and he toured with Charo "back in the day," but this was his first performance in a one-man cabaret show setting! OMG!!

Top Entertainment Venue

I have attended plays, groups of musicians in Stages and soloists in the Red Room and have nothing but a wonderful receptive time. Danny Mininni hosts a warm place to mingle with friends or make new ones while viewing top entertainment of many genres from all over the world, in addition to fantastic local talent. I urge everyone to check out this locale, as good as one would find anywhere. Puerto Vallarta s becoming a premier draw for music and acting fans.

Red room - Mama Tits

We were looking for something unique and affordable to do in PV. We really enjoy local theatre/shows when we travel. The red room is an intimate space and staff were great. Show we saw with Mama Tits and she was a entertaining and motivational. Although we were only heterosexual couple it was a blast. Act II has range of shows available during higher season. I'd highly recommend checking this place out. We will return for future shows

A FABulous destination!

This is such a bawdy good time! We have seen the Dueling Divas twice and Joanne's solo show once. They are great singers and fun entertainers! Costume changes and THOSE SHOES! What amazing range!
The time flew right by each time and I never wanted the shows to end! Laughed so much!
This is a definite stop each time we visit PV.

Fun Shows, Good Value, Highly Recommend

We first discovered Act II Stages in December 2015 on our first visit to Puerto Vallarta. We attended 3-4 evening performances in the Red Room that week -- comedy, singing, drag -- all good. We enjoyed it so much we returned to Puerto Vallarta in December 2016 and again went to Act II a few times. What a fun time! Highly recommend.
