Jose and Patti

The renowned duo JOSE AND PATTI has been wowing audiences worldwide with their vibrant performances, garnering acclaim that’s transcended the trans-oceanic crowds and is now branching out to include soundtrack and album releases. JOSE AND PATTI’s original spin on classic tunes and their unique international flair is evident from the moment the accomplished guitarist and sultry vocalist hit the stage and raise the communal pulse to the stratosphere with their energetic delivery. If it seems like nirvana that the two have paired up, one need only examine their history to determine that JOSE AND PATTI seemed destined to become a team.

In the 90's, Jose Davila was entertainment director at Club Med’s luxurious Huatulco, Mexico resort, having worked his way up to the lofty position after seven years as a lifeguard, land sports and tennis instructor and sports director at their most exotic resorts throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, France and the United States.
As an accomplished guitarist and singer with over 25 years of performing experience ranging from classical to contemporary to folk/rock, Jose was responsible for music and stage direction, as well as the coordination of a crew of choreographers, costume designers, and sound and light technicians for the nightly performances.

Blessed with a gift for finessing the melody in any genre from rock to soul to jazz to blues and beyond, the musician also enjoyed his own time in the spotlight. Jose was searching for a partner to accompany him on his music sojourns when Patti Tateo, a vivacious and brainy music industry marketing executive who’d been moonlighting as a singer at some of New York’s most prestigious clubs and recording studios (where she did session work for various luminaries), entered his life.

Contracted to perform at Club Med, she found her soul mate in Jose as the two tapped into each other’s musical talents and the magic – and romantic sparks – flew. “I was amazed at how quickly she could arrange vocals – lead or harmony – on any song,” recalls Jose. “Her voice was truly unique.” Patti was equally impressed by Jose’s musicianship. “He was literally an audience magnet,” she remembers. “He’s so approachable personally and it completely translates onstage. People would hear his voice and naturally walk over to wherever he was set up that day. Then they would just stay, period.”

Their repertoire has developed into what they are calling their "adult contemporary flashbacks, and concert events", aimed primarily at Baby-Boomers. "If we have a conversation going on, that shifts from stage to audience and then there’s no ‘you and me,’ but a collective ‘us’, then, everyone has fun.”

Meanwhile their special full-hour presentation of Neil Diamond hits burgeoned into such a landslide of requests for a disc, it finally led to their latest release, The Music of Neil Diamond. The set delivers classic tracks like “Sweet Caroline,” “Cracklin’ Rosie” and 13 others with an original spin that pays homage to the legendary entertainer. “I’ve always been told that my voice resembles Neil Diamond’s,” notes Jose. “I love his music and there seems to be almost a cult following to his music and show. An album just naturally follows after doing a tribute show.”

If it sounds like theirs is a perfect marriage between love and talent, it’s because that’s exactly how they view their lives. “I cannot believe that I have so much fun performing my favorite music with my best friend – my wife, Patti – and we actually get paid for this!” exclaims Jose. Patti, seconds his thoughts, adding, “Now I know what they mean when they say, ‘Love what you do and the rest will follow.’ That is our life!”

The tireless twosome continue to spread their multi-faceted delivery across the globe, performing their unique JOSE AND PATTI shows for countless travelers – and transforming a simple vacation into a musical respite that lingers long after the holiday is over.
