Reik
All you need to know about Mexican pop trio Reik is in one song: “Náufragos,” masterfully interpreted by singer Jesús Alberto Navarro: we’re talking Charlie Puth-caliber here, a piano-based romantic ballad full of colorful tones and disarming falsettos. He’s a superb vocalist who has outgrown the group, and that’s a shame: these cachanillas (from Mexicali, Baja California) settled for harmless syrupy, conventional hymns after insinuating an edgier, electro-pop side in previous albums. In spite of the Latin Grammy-winning group’s predictability, acoustic guitarist/vocalist Julio Ramírez and electric guitarist Gilberto Marín keep things dignified through good execution. The reggae (and insufferable) reggaeton touches can’t hide the sweetness of it all, but if you choose radio-friendliness you could do a lot worse than Reik. Their latest album, Des/Amor (2016), capably produced by Kiko Cibrián, is just one side of Reik. This show should prove Reik has more guts than it seems on record, and a singer you won’t easily forget. $43.75-$153.75, 8pm, The Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston St., (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com. — Enrique Lopetegui
