Maria Jose and Club Papi heat up Neighbours

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Staff Writer

Maria Jose
and Club Papi
April 17
Neighbours
Nightclub


Latin pop and dance music sensation Maria Jose is no strwanger to performing. Since age 14, the platinum-selling Mexican recording artist has entertained audiences as a singer or ballet and flamenco dancer. Thanks to Club Papi, the country's biggest traveling Gay Latino company, Maria is coming to Seattle. On April 17, Maria and the Club Papi go-go dancers and Latino drag sensation Lola are bringing the spiciest dance party in the country to Neighbours nightclub.

"I've never been to Seattle, so I'm really looking forward to seeing it," Maria told SGN in a phone interview from Mexico. "Before the show, we are going to do a meet-and-greet. I can't wait to meet everyone and sign autographs and chat with my fans."

Club Papi, now in its 14th year, holds parties in 16 cities around the U.S. and Mexico. The brand is known for their hot male dancers, stunning drag queens, and big-name Latino stars like Maria. According to Club Papi officials, the organization has wanted to bring the party to Seattle for a number of years and is excited to present their inaugural event this Sunday.

Maria, who just released her second solo album (she began her career in Kabah, one of the most important youth groups in the music industry in Mexico) and is riding high on the success of her latest tour, told SGN she is ready to show Seattle a good time. "Be prepared to enjoy the live show," she said. "I am bringing two hot Mexican dancers with me and we are going to have a blast. It will be a wonderful experience!"

Maria told SGN that during the show, there will be a drawing to find four winners who will get to go backstage and hang out with the Club Papi performers. According to the promoters, the April 17 show will consist of the best the touring party has to offer.

Maria says that making music for people to dance to and have a good time listening to is important to her. "I love making music for Gay people," she said. "My latest CD, Amante de lo Ajeno, is an homage to the pop divas of the '80s. My Gay fans love it."

Performing in front of Gay fans is something that Maria says she looks forward to. In fact, after Sunday night's show, she and Club Papi are Phoenix-bound to participate in the city's Gay Pride celebration.

"The Gay community has been very nice to me. All of my Gay fans are so loving and caring," Maria told SGN. "Also, I love the vibe inside of Gay clubs - it's a party all the time, all night!"

Maria says that although she is heterosexual, she is a part of the Gay community. "I have a lot of Gay friends and, like most everyone, Gay family members. I am 100% pro-Gay marriage and pro-adoption. Most of all, I am pro-love!"
