'Ricky Martin' Brings La Vida Loca To Coventry

A Coventry nightspot is ready to set female pulses racing by bringing some Latino flair to the city.

Jumpin Jaks will play host to Ricky Martin tribute La Vida Loca on 16 January.

Adam Austin has been appearing as Ricky Martin since the singing sensation took the British pop charts by storm in 1999.

After winning rave reviews for his amazing resemblance to the artist, Austin has secured bookings all over the country as a tribute to the Puerto Rican-born sensation.

Jumpin Jaks manager Andrew MacLeod admitted he was staggered at Austin's vocal resemblance to Martin and said the 900-capacity venue would be embarking on a search for the country's best tribute artist:

"We have had some very talented tributes here and a lot of people cannot believe how much like the artists they look and sound.

"Recent appearances include tributes to Shania Twain and George Michael, both of whom were excellent.

"La Vida Loca have a fantastic reputation and their lead vocalist Adam Austin has notable achievements as an individual artist.

"He has appeared alongside Steps and All Saints and has recently been in concert with Lou Bega, who created Mambo No5.

"As well as Ricky Martin songs, the band perform other Latino style hits including Club Tropicana, Copa Cabana and La Bamba.

"On the 23 January we have booked Mikki Jay which is a Michael Jackson show and we are expecting that to be very popular.

"He must be one of the hardest acts to cover for because every time you see him he has a different appearance."

Jaks plays host to a different tribute act every Tuesday night with admission free of charge before 10pm and 1 after.

UPDATE: The tribute nights are now on Wednesdays, and La Vida Loca will therefore be playing on 17 January and not 16 January.
