Richard Bean and Sapo perform “Suavecito” in San Pablo in 2009

San Pablo and its music promoter, Kentara Padron, have staged some nice events in the past few years, including the summer series on 23rd Street this year and the annual Fourth of July celebration at the El Portal soccer field.
Here is video of two numbers by Sapo, featuring Richard Bean, composer of the radio classic “Suavecito,” originally recorded by Malo. The video here has an early number, followed by an elongated and much more rocking version of the the original hit.
