Reviving the Long-lost Tradition of the Serenata

Seasoned actor and singer Gabriel Gonzalez is reviving the long-lost tradition of serenades this holiday season by offering Latin serenades direct to peoples homes. Starting this week and running through the New Year, Gabriel and an accompanying guitarist will wake up your loved ones with soulful songs of the holidays or romantic ballads just like they used to do so lovingly in Pedro Infante and Jorge Negrete films.

The serenata includes a special in-person appearance by Gonzalez who will sing three songs chosen by the hiring parties in English or Spanish starting as early as 5am and running through noon each day. The songs of choice include Las Ma??anitas, Feliz Navidad, Silent Night and more. Sure to be a most memorable holiday season for lucky ladies, children, and especially moms and abuelitas, Gonzalez says "singing in such an intimate setting as a serenata is something that moves people to a point where you feel overwhelming love and pride in your rich and romantic cultural heritage. What better way to say 'I love you' but with a serenata and I want to revive this beautiful tradition in LA."

To set the date for a morning your loved ones will never forget, send an e-mail to LatinMusicLA@gmail.com with your name, address, phone, and the date and time you'd like your holiday serenata. Rates begin at $150 for any location within 20 miles of downtown Los Angeles. Additional costs apply for special requests and additional songs. Other times may also be available.
