Lucio Fernandez Brings 'The Cuban Kid in Concert' To Bacchus Bistro, 3/19

Lucio Fernandez, nominated for a 2008 MAC Award for his performance in the show "The Cuban Kid in concert", and winner of both the ITRA Award and Premio ARTE Award, will bring his award winning show for one night only to the Bacchus Bistro in La Quinta Inn & Suites, 350 Lighting Way in Secaucus, NJ on Friday, March 19th at 9:00 PM.

"The Cuban Kid hits the swamps" is a hilarious evening full of music, comedy, and lots of nonsense.!!! Lucio will be accompanied by his five-piece band, performing Broadway tunes, a few Latin standards as well as some of the poetry from his new CD.

The show centers on Lucio's life story of being born in Cuba, his experiences growing up in "Jersey", and becoming a City Commissioner.

From poverty to City Commissioner... from playing barefoot in ditches with paper boats as a kid to singing in New York City... this is Lucio's story. He was born in Havana, Cuba to a poor family. His mother was a seamstress and one of sixteen children. As a child, he and his mother had to leave the country due to political reasons... his father was a political prisoner. They lived in Spain for one year before arriving in the United States. They settled in New Jersey, where he still calls home. After graduating from Rutgers University he became a professional actor traveling the world with several Broadway shows. Increasingly becoming more socially conscious, he set out to help others, leading him to become involved with many charities, serving on many boards, and finally becoming a Commissioner for the City of Union City. In his act, "The Cuban Kid" in Concert, he discusses the challenges of being an artist while serving as a "politician". He jokes about being a Cuban-American singing Broadway tunes, and of being an artist in the world of "machismo".

The show is written by Gerard Karabin and Lucio Fernandez, musical arrangements & direction by Mark Goodman, and directed by Lucio's wife, Megan Fernandez.

If you want to hear memorable show tunes, romantic Latin standards, some poetry and have a few laughs, check out "The Cuban Kid hits the swamps ".

You don't need to smoke Cuban cigars or drink Rum & Cokes to attend... everyone is invited to get a little crazy in the swamps!!!
