Regional Mexican music hit Florida Friday night (Dec. 6) with a four-hour concert headlined by Calibre 50, Banda Carnaval and Cuarto de Milla at the South Florida Fair Expo in West Palm Beach, Fla.
The night kicked off at 10 p.m., just two hours after the doors opened to the public, with an energetic presentation by Cuarto de Milla, whose one-hour set included a heartfelt Vicente Fernandez medley with classics “Aca Entre Nos” and “Volver, Volver.”
At 11:15 p.m., the Latin Grammy-nominated Banda Carnaval took the stage performing some of their biggest hits including “Pideme,” “Loco,” “Olvidarte, ¿Como?” and “Esta Vez Soy Yo.” Their one-hour and 15-minute set was a full-on production with dancing musicians and a small striptease to hype up the crowd.
Following Banda Carnaval, at 12:45 p.m., headliners Calibre 50 — wearing matching gold blazers and black cowboy hats — jumped on stage and immediately assured their fans that they were going to have a great time. “Vamos a pasarla chingon!” frontman Eden Muñoz said. The quartet flaunted their Norteño-Banda fusions that best characterize them when they performed hits such as “El Amor No Fue Pa’ Mi,” “Prestamela a Mi” and “Mi Sorpresa Fuiste Tu.” At one point, they even dropped their very own version of Marco Antonio Solis’ “Si Te Pudiera Mentir.”
After crooning other great tunes such as “Ni Que Estuvieras Tan Buena,” “Siempre Te Voy a Querer,” and “Javier el de los llanos,” Calibre 50 wrapped up their show at 2 a.m. with their romantic anthem “Contigo.”
The group from Mazatlan, Sinaloa further expressed their gratitude on Instagram, sharing a set of photos and stating, “West Palm Beach, Florida.. Thank you!!”
