May 2019 — Come let your mind be blown by one of the most original music comedy shows you will ever see — Olé! World Music and Comedy. Featuring amazing Flamenco guitar playing and musical virtuosity of pop, swing, blues and international classics, this show will be full of spectacular fun!
Olé! World Music and Comedy performs on Wednesday, May 22, at 7 p.m. at the Florence Events Center, 715 Quince. Come early to get to know this fun group during the pre-concert talk starting at 6:15 p.m..
Paul Morocco, Guillermo de Endaya and Marcial Heredia make up this merry trio of Latino guitar players. They present a fresh and exciting blend of Spanish comedy, Flamenco, Guitarras and, of course, their signature ping pong. These three Latin Machos, full of fire, fight for their pride while playing, spinning and throwing their Spanish guitars. They take the audience on a journey ending in a Grand Fiesta!!
Paul Morocco developed Olé! after cutting his performing teeth on the streets of New Orleans. There, he explored his love for entertaining the public, learning the timeless craft of connecting to the audience and developing his unique improvisational skills.
The original Olé! show began at London’s Mime Festival in 1990, and debuted at Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival in 1991, receiving not one, but two awards for the performance.
In 1996, Paul teamed up with Guillermo De Endaya and Marcial Heredia. This version of the show plays to enraptured audiences to this day, and has become an international cult hit all over the World.
“These three Locos are not only funny, but enormously musically talented as well. Their powerful performance combines frantic and zany slapstick that is almost surreal beyond madness” writes the UK’s The Daily Telegraph.
SEAcoast Entertainment presents Olé! as part of its 2018-19 season. The group is an all-volunteer 501 (c)(3) bringing incredible music and entertainment to the Central Coast for 38 years. Tickets are on sale now for $35 for adults and $10 for students.
