Guanabanas’ Noche Latina Series Celebrates 1st Anniversary October 22
Double dose of Miami Latin funk by Electric Piquete and the Spam Allstars fetes series and Hispanic Heritage Month
Jupiter, FL – October 11, 2016 – Around this time last year, Guanabanas Island Restaurant & Bar’s Talent Buyer Matt Cahur began to satiate demand for Latin culture at the Jupiter restaurant live music venue. By launching the monthly Noche Latina series, he not only brought regional and international Latino music acts to the North Palm Beach area on a more regular basis, but celebrated the flavor and diversity of the genre during Hispanic Heritage Month.
On Saturday, October 22, 2016, Guanabanas is marking the one year anniversary of the series by hosting a double header of Latin funk. Electric Piquete will play from 4 to 7 p.m. during happy hour, and the Spam Allstars are scheduled for a two-hour performance beginning at 9 p.m. Both shows are free and open to those 21 and over.
“These two acts represent the Miami sound extremely well and are crowd favorites at Guanabanas,” says Cahur. “They both feature a roster of extremely talented musicians, and both offer highly-danceable and infectious grooves. We invite everyone to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month with us once again.”
Electric Piquete, two-time Miami New Times “Best Latin Band”, fuse rock, jazz, funk, Afro-Caribbean, progressive and R&B influences with incendiary results. They recently issued their Singles Collection digitally and on CD, and released a video for their brand new single “Cut Me Loose”. The band made their debut at the Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival of Music & Dance in North Carolina on October 8. More information: www.ElectricPiquete.com.
The Spam Allstars are one of Miami’s most popular, well-known, longest-running and most accomplished bands. They have been nominated for a Latin Grammy, toured nationally, and this year played in South Africa as part of a cultural exchange sponsored by the U.S. Embassy & Consulates. The group is getting set to release a long-anticipated sixth full-length album called Trans-Oceanic. Learn more at www.SpamAllstars.com.
Guanabanas is an open air restaurant and bar with woven tiki huts and banyan trees towering overhead and hand-chiseled coquina stone pathways underfoot.
