Keith Tynes is in the House!

Keith Tynes is best known as a member of the famous R&B group The Platters. He joined the group in his late teens and performed with them for almost five years during the 80s as their tenor, crooning favorite songs like The Platters’ classic, Only You.

Over the years, Keith has met and performed with many of the ‘greats’ in the music biz. We enjoyed seeing pictures of Keith and many well-known entertainers in background videos as he performed throughout the evening. Keith has had a long and successful musical career, and his voice is as fine now as it was when he started.

Keith Tynes has spent the last 20 years living and performing in Europe, including Holland and Berlin, Germany. For the past 6 winters, Keith has also performed at various entertainment venues in and around Puerto Vallarta. He recently received over 31 million views of his impromptu performance of Stand By Me, with a European singing group.

We heard fascinating stories of Keith’s experiences with The Platters and other musicians throughout Sunday’s show. He thrilled us with familiar favorites like Only You,  New York, New York, The Great Pretender, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, Don’t Rain On My Parade, Rock Around the Clock, This is My Life, The Twist, Twilight Time, Hound Dog, The Magic Touch, Maybe This Time and more.

Keith also delivered a thrilling, classic Spanish hit. After thunderous applause and a standing ovation, Keith ended the night with another inspirational tune.

Was I impressed with the show? Absolutely! Keith is one of the best performers that I’ve seen in Vallarta over the years.

He is a consummate entertainer who loves performing for his audience. His stories are fascinating, and his singing is incredible. When asked about his success in the music business, Keith attributes it to hard work, great teachers/mentors, and clean living. With a music career spanning five decades, Keith continues to deliver shows with enthusiasm, charisma, and stellar vocals.

During his other ACT2PV show, The Barrys, Keith performs the lush melodies and heartfelt lyrics of Barry Manilow that transport you to a world of nostalgia, while his deep, velvety voice singing the soulful music of Barry White creates a passionate atmosphere. The harmonious fusion of these two iconic artists is an evening of pure musical delight that celebrates love and the enduring power of their music. The Barrys happens every other Sunday at 5 pm, at Act2’s Casa Karma Red Room.

I highly recommend seeing one of Keith Tynes’ shows while you’re in town. He’s performing  The Barrys and The Platters and More every other Sunday at 5 pm at Act2PV throughout the season.

For more information about shows or to buy tickets, go to or the box office, which is open from noon to 10 pm daily.

You can also see Keith at La Catrina Cantina in Zona Romantica on Thursdays at 9 pm. If you are a fan of spectacular R&B, Gospel, and Motown music, make sure to catch one of Keith’s performances while you’re in Vallarta.
