The Riviera Maya Jazz Festival Presents Acclaimed R&B Musical Stars, Phil Perry and Brian McKnight

Presented by the acclaimed Riviera Maya Jazz Festival, held annually in November, internationally-renowned musical artists Phil Perry and Brian McKnight perform a free concert the evening of Saturday, May 29 at Mamitas Beach Club in Playa del Carmen.

“Music is an integral part of a vacation experience; there’s nothing like sitting on a beach listening to great music under the stars,” states Javier Aranda, general director of the Rivera Maya Destination Marketing Office. “As a precursor to the Riviera Maya Jazz Festival which showcases jazz music from celebrated international artists and Mexican musicians over a four day period, this summer concert is yet another way we hope to enhance tourists’ experiences in the Riviera Maya.”

Renowned Mexican jazz singer, Caro Montes will open the concert with the debut of her first solo project. Originally from Monterrey, Mexico, Montes has performed at the Riviera Maya Jazz Festival for the past four years as part of the jazz/rock group Aguamala.
Phil Perry, R&B singer, songwriter and musician, got his start in the music industry as a member of the soul group, The Montclairs. Perry again saw great success a couple decades later with the number one R&B hit, “Call Me,” as well as with other top 40 R&B singles “Amazing Love” and “Forever.”

Brian McKnight, a platinum recording artist who has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide, is known for his soulful fusions of pop and R&B and has established himself with enviable chart consistency, has toured for more than a decade, and has collaborated with artists across a multitude of genres such as Justin Timberlake, Willie Nelson and Christina Aguilera, to name a few.

Mamitas Beach Club is one of Playa del Carmen’s most popular spots for lounging and relaxing just steps from the Caribbean Ocean. It is also home to the renowned Riviera Maya Jazz Festival. Drawing more than 50,000 visitors to the Riviera Maya last year, the Festival boasts internationally-renowned jazz artists such as Herbie Hancock, Kool and the Gang, Gino Vanelli, Pat Martino, Sergio Mendes, The Tower of Power, Fourplay and George Benson, among many others, while also giving local jazz musicians the opportunity to display their talents. Celebrating its eighth season this year, the Jazz Festival will take place November 25-28.
