News from Bruno

Friends of Clube Praia da Oura has recently heard from Bruno, former singer, entertainer and all-round good guy at CPO, who has given us some news and info about his present work.

Bruno is currently the front man for the DiéB Band, who have been playing gigs at venues around Albufeira, as well as singing and entertaining in his own right. You can keep up to date with the group's activities by visiting their well-supported Facebook site.

It would be great to see Bruno and his band performing back at the CPO some time - and if the management team are reading this, I'm sure I'm not alone in looking forward to the day. But in the meantime, I'll leave you with a little DiéB:

Does Anybody Know This Man?

"I've know this guy since he was this high"
Striking a pose in his fetching new cerise shirt, our intrepid Algarvian superhero demonstrates how he maintains his cool by keeping one hand on the ice bucket whilst doling out canecas and peanuts to the multitude.

The legend that is Miguel has been bartendering to the CPO faithful since time immemorial, forever with a smile. If you see him when next you are at the resort, say "hi" (or "bom dia") from the Friends of CPO and tell him that the Fat Bloke at the Bar will be returning in earnest for laughs and lager before the summer is done.

Big John and Cláudia - Live Music Duo

One of the most popular and long-standing entertainment acts serving CPO and its sister resorts is the musical duo Big John and Cláudia, a.k.a. João Nave e Cláudia Rocha.

Those who have heard John and Cláudia invariably comment on the harmony and the chemistry that they exude as they ease through soothing medleys of Simon and Garfunkel, Eagles and other songs from the genre.

Take a moment to Like their Facebook Page, and maybe listen to a few of the clips from their musical sets that they have posted up.
