Poppy/jazz performer Margo Rey to perform in Dallas May 27 and 28

DALLAS Singer-songwriter, actress, and producer Margo Rey returns to her home of Dallas and brings to the stage her own brand of original Bossa-Pop-Jazz that she calls "Organica” -- pop music that is deeply rooted in jazz with thick, ethno-rhythmic grooves, textured with lush vocals, keys, and ambient guitar arrangements. Margo Rey will perform Thursday, May 27, 2010, at 8 p.m. on the Dallas Museum of Arts’ Ross Avenue Plaza. Admission is free and concession is available; picnic baskets and blankets are welcome and recommended.
As a special treat for Margo’s homecoming, Cafe Lago in Dallas is taking orders for picnic basket meals for two, delivered to you at the show. Call Gabriela at Cafe Lago at 214-320-0726.
Margo Rey will also perform Friday, May 28, 2010, at 9 p.m. at Scat Jazz Lounge.
Recently, Margo performed on the Dr. Phil Show, and Dr. Phil McGraw on the broadcast said, “Girls, if you want a little romance, if this won’t do it, I can’t help you. This is addictive, you will want to go out and get this CD. I did and I love it and you will too.”
Margo Rey has shared the stage with such jazz and music greats as Roy Hargrove, James Clay, Cy Coleman, Marchel Ivery, Earl Harvin, Sheila E, Earl Klugh, Marilyn, and Alan Bergman and Shelley Carroll.
Born in Acapulco, Mexico, and raised in the local Dallas music scene since the age of 11, Margo Rey made a name for herself performing at Sambuca and Nana as “Miss Margo” with her band of talented musicians. She also was one of the most popular commercial vocalists for Juniper Music in Dallas (IMAX, Tabasco, McDonald’s). She released her first Spanish language album on an indie label in the late '90s and scored three Tops 5 hits and a #1 music video in the Latin market. Her early recordings were electronica, and she also studied classical and jazz. She signed with Polygram for a short time and then moved to New York City where she enjoyed success on Broadway in shows such as Saturday Night Fever, Selena Forever, Latin Heat, Zorro, Cy Coleman’s Like Jazz, and in Frank Loesser’s Señor Discretion Himself.
Margo has since moved to LA to work on her recording and songwriting. She also has acted in numerous Broadway and Off-Broadway productions and TV commercials and has performed at the Edison, The Hollywood Bowl, and The Four Seasons in Beverly Hills. She enjoys a strong following overseas and will be touring regularly to Mexico, Belgium, Spain, Italy, and Japan. She is married to Grammy-Nominated Comedian and NY Times Best-Selling Author Ron White.
