April 18, 2024

When the name "Pablo Cruise" is mentioned, it evokes more than just a band; it conjures images of infectious grooves, timeless melodies, and an embodiment of carefree spirit. The legendary band, known for their blend of Rock, Pop, and Jazz, is set to grace the stage once again, promising an unforgettable night of music and memories. On Saturday, April 20th, at 7:30 p.m., Pablo Cruise will perform at the Rose and Alfred Miniaci Performing Arts Center on the campus of Nova Southeastern University.

For Pablo Cruise, the name itself holds significance. "Pablo" represents authenticity, honesty, and a genuine approach to life, while "Cruise" embodies a laid-back, fun-loving attitude. This ethos permeates through their music, creating a sound that is both sophisticated and effortlessly enjoyable.

The journey of Pablo Cruise began in 1975 with the release of their self-titled debut album. Over the next decade, the band embarked on extensive tours across the United States, Canada, and Japan, captivating audiences with their electrifying performances. Hits like "Whatcha Gonna Do When She Says Goodbye?" and "Love Will Find A Way" soared up the charts, cementing Pablo Cruise's place in music history. Their music became anthems of an era, resonating with listeners and earning the band millions of devoted fans worldwide.

Pablo Cruise's impact extended beyond the airwaves, as they made memorable appearances on popular television shows like Dick Clark's American Bandstand and The Merv Griffin Show. In 1979, they made history by breaking Elvis Presley's attendance record at the Sahara Tahoe in South Lake Tahoe, Nevada, marking a pivotal moment in their career. Their versatility was further showcased when they became the first rock band to perform at the prestigious Grand Ole Opry.

However, after a decade of relentless touring and recording, Pablo Cruise decided to take a hiatus in 1985. This break lasted nearly 20 years, during which time the band members pursued individual endeavors. Yet, the allure of performing together once again proved irresistible, and in 2005, Pablo Cruise reunited to the delight of their loyal fanbase.

Since their reunion, Pablo Cruise has continued to captivate audiences with their electrifying live shows. Their performances are a testament to the timeless appeal of their music, drawing in new generations of fans while reigniting the passion of longtime devotees.
