What fun it is to work with people who know how to have fun. That was the case with Pedro Fernandez, Mexico’s premiere singer, movie star, and TV personality, all rolled into one.
Mexico’s super idol Pedro Fernandez played
on Saturday, March 18, 2017, to a sold-out and enthusiastic audience, a crowd which could sing along to most of his songs.
Sharing Fernandez‘ stage were five fiddlers, two horn players, and three guitarists. Before Fernandez took to the stage, one of the fiddlers got the crowd well warmed up with his own powerhouse vocals.
All musicians were clad in colorful, traditional Mexican band attire, but those were overshadowed at times by the smiles on each performer’s face. Obviously, they were having as much fun as the crowd, and that kind of fun can be contagious! And those on the lights and sound systems did their jobs well, showcasing the talent on every corner of the massive Grand Theater stage.
