Over the past couple of months, I’ve attended several musical events. It seems that Boquete is definitely back and open for business after the pandemic lockdowns, and I decided to take advantage of it. There is a wealth of talent in this town – I’ll share the ones with you that I’ve experienced recently.
First, my friend Andrea and I went to the Boquete Brewery for some live music by a very talented duo, Adia and Dario. High-energy and an enjoyable playlist!
A few days later, Julie, a friend from drumming, invited me to join her and some friends at Mesa Azul, an upscale restaurant and bar. The dinner was delicious, the company was agreeable, and the live music was sublime. Here is a lovely clip of Julie and her husband swaying to the sweet sounds of the Café con Leche band.
On another evening, it was Reggae Night at Mike’s Global Grill, where the Agua de Coco band laid down some of my favorite reggae songs. I enjoyed seeing friends I hadn’t seen in awhile, and the fried chicken dinner was awesome!
Next on the list was the Blues Extravaganza, hosted by the BCP (Boquete Community Players) at their temporary location in a large tent on the grounds of The Rock restaurant, and featuring the Boquete Blues Band.
After the regular performance, they had a jam session with additional local talent. My friend Andrea Lynne was one of the featured performers. This was the first time I had seen her perform, and she did not disappoint!
I had a great time getting out and experiencing some special events with friends, and I hope you enjoyed the musical tour featuring just a fraction of the talented performers in Boquete.
