Rare Video of David de Alba

| May 11, 2015

In 1980 David de Alba, the Cuban Legend, stepped outside the walls of the famous female impersonation club Finocchio’s to do a special performance at the Circulo Cubano in San Francisco.

David said when asked about the show:

“I dressed up as a Pierrot and also in The Hobo costume Judy Garland used to wear for the funny parts of her shows. I did it because there was no dressing room available and also no one to help me change drag costumes and because there were also many children in the audience I thought it would be more appropriate so they could identify with clowns … at my shows always adults came, but these folks from Cuba came from all over the SF/Bay Area to see me perform and brought the whole family practically.”

David appeared in the show with a special Spanish singing tribute to his friends, and famous Cuban singers Olga Chorens & Tony Alvarez. Here, courtesy of Mario Jimenez is a video of David de Alba at the Circulo Cubano.

    David is the ultimate performer and his Las Vegas shows are a “must see.” When he performs as Judy Garland one would believe they are seeing “the real Judy.” He is that good. Hugs to you David, Carollyn
