Daniel Portela Hot and Latino Act 2 Entertainment

daniel portela hot and latino
Daniel Portela returns to Act 2 Entertainment Red Room Cabaret  with an new show which features Latin tunes and American songs given a Latin twist. His strong vocals, dance moves and overall personality bring theater-goes back for more, time after time. His show is so professional, even more than when he was last here a couple years ago. He is the consummate entertainer. His energy and joy pervade the room and as he emits it, the people present give it right back. He said several times what a wonderful crowd he received, giving energy that he is so happy to be in Puerto Vallarta. He is the fantastic, talented and exciting man to see.
His entrance into the room stirs the audience to applause before a single word is sung. He prances, glides and jumps across the space, all perfectly choreographed. His band is red hot consisting of a drummer, two guitarists, trumpeter and keyboardist. Smooth and coordinated are the descriptions which come to mind. Next was “Sway” known by almost everyone present. It was dreamy and Latin-based. Terrific. “I Will Always Love You”, not the famous one, was a delight in softness and emotional release..
“A joyous gift to the crowd was declared a song no one has heard, jokingly, as he went into “Despacito [Slowly]”. Strong beat allowing no one to sit still. Daniel mentioned that the next song was one he has sung for years and adores the melody and lyrics: “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”. It was a superlative arrangement and brought the loudest cheers so far. Frankie would be proud. The song is the first song primarily in Spanish to top the Billboard Hot 100 since Macarena in 1996. Daniel had this song under his belt, wonderfully performed. “With all my heart and feeling”, he reflected his down-to-earth presence.
He was a member of the band Simbolinas and recently has sung with the Latin tropical band Los Tropilokos. A veteran here, he was in the cast of Act II’s Sordid Lives and Rocky Horror Show as Rocky, now living in Guadalajara.
He is promoting his first solo album, “Por Ti Vivo” [I live for you] with single “De Qué Sirvió” [what did it serve] and new hit single, “Y Te Encontré” [and I found you]. “De Qué Sirvió” is another of his sit singles. A fun song, “Chúpale al Tequila!”, Daniel brought smiles to many people in their seats.
