David Duvall Celebrates Duke Ellington’s Music

On Sunday, April 21, at 2 pm, in the Casa Karma Red Room at Act2PV, David Duvall Celebrates the Music of… the great Duke Ellington in recognition of his 125th birthday this year.

Duke Ellington’s contribution to the Great American Songbook is unparalleled, with over 2,000 song titles to his credit. Among his most popular pieces are:

  • Satin Doll
  • Mood Indigo 
  • It Don’t Mean a Thing (if It Ain’t Got That Swing)
  • I’m Beginning to See the Light
  • Don’t Get Around Much Anymore
  • Sophisticated Lady 

Under Duke Ellington’s direction, the Duke Ellington Orchestra was the longest-lasting big band in American history. Duke received 13 Grammy Awards over his career and a posthumous Pulitzer Prize for his contribution to the world of music.

Hailed as a vocalist with a “rich and warm voice and a delightful skill with banter,” Duvall is a seasoned entertainer in the Bobby Short style who sings and shares stories from his piano. 

This month, his special guest will be Puerto Vallarta favorite Fernanda Hernandez, whose jazz vocal stylings have taken the town by storm. Duvall will also be joined by Danny Lopez on bass and DannyJu Lopez on drums.

These monthly concerts have been growing in attendance, so make your reservations soon here. Tickets are only 500 pesos for a 105-minute show.
