Mariachi USA Fiesta

Nikki Beach Club, Sept. 17

In honor of Mexican Independence Day, the Tropicana hosted Mariachi USA, a 90-minute revue, which has been playing for more than 20 years in California. The show featured about 25 musicians playing a variety of instruments. But first, the ample crowd was treated to a moving video montage of Hispanic heritage and an Aztec ceremonial dance. The main performance kicked off with “Guadalajara,” a flawless harmony of male and female voices, crisp notes emanating from the instruments and plenty of visual delights. The revue included a variety of sounds—from Cumbia to a comical broken-English interpretation of “My Girl.” Ballet Folklorico delighted the crowd with elaborate dances and costume changes. It was a show that pleased all the senses.
