Cabaret, Piano Bar & Cafe Puerto Vallarta, owned by Tracy Parks, takes its name from the charming and elegant setting along the Rio Cuale that divides old town from centro in beautiful Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Incanto welcomes the talented and award-winning Miss Hope Springs, one of London’s most popular cabaret acts this season. Under his pseudonym, Miss Hope Springs, Ty Jeffries sings all live and plays all originally penned material, ranging from pop, to swing and Latin, with hilarious comedy throughout.

Playing the piano and singing her award winning repertoire of uniquely catchy original songs, ex-Vegas nightclub chanteuse Miss Hope Springs brings you her laugh-out-loud-move-you-to-tears one-woman show. Still wearing the sequins she left the Pink Pelican Casino with in 1972, Hope regales with hysterical tales from her ‘Ritz to the pits’ life. You’ll hear her unique blend of finger snapping pop, romantic rumbas and sassy bossa novas, as she takes you on the roller coaster ride ‘from the pits to the Ritz…and back again’. She captivates with tales of her disastrous love life and excruciating career choices and sings songs from her award winning ‘repertoire to be reckoned with…The best songs that Bacharach, Porter and Legrand never wrote’ (Fringe Review Outstanding Show).

They met Hulda Hix, a French-Caribbean vocalist from Brooklyn, NY, in Puerto Vallarta in Dec. 2016, and immediately made a great connection that reflects in the music. It is truly a description of this band’s distinct sound. Masterfully, they combine music from different genres into a beautiful island melody that personifies what “feel good music” is made of.
