Emotional goodbye to the emblematic Teatro Pereyra
After 30 years as a benchmark of Ibiza nights thanks to its commitment to live music, the Pereyra Theater says goodbye with an emotional party
El Pereyra Theater, one of the most emblematic venues of Ibiza nights thanks to its determined commitment to the live music, which offered every night throughout the year, It has finally closed its doors. A sad news that although it was known for a long time, leaves a bitter aftertaste to have to say goodbye after 30 years. to a local reference on the island.
On the 3 Saturday night of March, 2018 took place emotional farewell party that was not publicized even in the social networks of the coffee concert itself, and that despite making itself known through word of mouth, it brought together a whole multitude of clients, artists, friends and many familiar faces that they came to show their affection. There were so many attendees, and that despite the fine rain that fell, that shortly after midnight had to crowd on the terrace, in the nearby streets and around the iconic building.
How could it be otherwise, the evening was led by music, with the Matteo Crocetti Band and other regular musicians of the local playing great hits of the history of rock, soul, pop, funky or Latin music that have been the usual soundtrack of this place whose motto was «Without VIPs or private».
And it is that this place, opened in the 80 by a Dutch family, with the pianist and composer Eric-Jan Harmsen in front, his son Juan Guillermo Harmsen 'Juangui' and his mother, Kees Terbruggen, has been an essential part of the story of Ibiza, a place where many of us have lived a endless magical and unrepeatable nights with quality music as a backdrop.
From Sunday the place returns to hands of the Matutes family, owner of the theater. What will be done from now on with this building, declared an Asset of Cultural Interest, is still unknown. Of what there is no doubt is that this closing marks the end of an era, or, as so emotionally expressed Juangui, the son of the owner, es The end of "a dream that has lasted 30 years". His mother Kees added: "We are sad but very happy at the same time because when one door closes, another one opens".
THANK YOU FAMILY THEATER PEREYRA IBIZA THEREFORE, SO MANY YEARS ...
