Four-time Grammy nominee Carlos Guzman will be celebrating his 50-year singing career at Casa Mariposa during the First Annual Masquerade and Performance on Saturday, October 27.
Guzman has released over 30 albums covering many genres in his career. He said he prefers to stick to ballads mixed with his Tejano influence.
“It is what I have been doing since way back,” Guzman said.
Guzman has toured with the likes of Juan Gabriel, Vicente Fernandez and Lola Beltran. He said he is excited to perform on South Padre Island after touring most of the United States and Mexico with his “My Way” tour especially because he is from the Rio Grande Valley.
Guzman took home an American Grammy for “Otra Vez Raices” with The Legends in 2002 then was nominated for a Latin Grammy for his solo gospel album in 2005.
“It is very satisfying when you reach someone with your music,” Guzman said.
Guzman said he will be performing a variety of his music and will be sharing some of his career highlights with the audience.
Casa Mariposa is located at 112 Corral St. on South Padre Island. Cost of admission is $65.00 per person or $400.00 for a table of eight. Dinner will be served at 7 p.m. The performance begins at 8 p.m. and a three course dinner will be prepared by CIA Chef Gerald Anchelo. For more info, call (956) 778-6095.
