Prince Royce and His Pencil Mustache Swoon Into the BankUnited Center February 12

Categories: Heads Up
For a certain kind of music snob, there's nothing more annoying than all that saccharine radio pop stuff called bachata. At best, it's elevator muzak. At worst, it sounds like a sad baby wailing over a karaoke tape full of stuttering guitar, bongo, and maracas.

But there are millions of people who absolutely love it. And the latest irrefutable proof of bachata's mega-popularity is a Bronx-born Dominican phenomenon named Prince Royce.

Only 21 years old, this bachatero broke out last year with a Spanglish cover of the old Ben E. King soul-pop hit, "Stand by Me." It shot to the highest rung on Billboard's Latin charts, sold like smack on iTunes, and even crossed over into English-language radio land.

So all music snobs, stay home this Saturday when the Prince swoons into the BankUnited Center. The rest of you, though, should get ready for his cute face, suave pencil mustache, guitar, bongo, and maracas.

Prince Royce. Saturday, February 12. BankUnited Center, 1245 Dauer Dr., Coral Gables. The show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets cost $35 to $55 plus fees via Call 305-284-8686 or visit

The dude is the real deal, his album is even better. Certified platinum in the U.S (close to being double) for a relatively unknown Latin artist is a huge deal. Its a breath of fresh air, for sometime i was hoping someone would bring something to the table that wasn't named Aventura.
