Since 2013, Guavatron has been fusing dance, rock, electronica and funk into a unique and hard-hitting sound. Leaning on improvisation and smooth jams, the group has quickly come into its own, opening for national touring bands such as Perpetual Groove and TheHeavy Pets. Stunning performances at Suwanee Hulaween helped propel the band to the forefront of Florida’s jam band scene. Based out of West Palm Beach, Guavatron features Roddy Hansen on keys, Conor Crookham on bass, Adonis Frangiskakis (guitar / vocals), and drummer Casey Luden. The band have become regular performers at Guanabanas’ annual Jerry Garcia Bash. Learn more at

Tand’s funky, high-energy rock and roll leans heavily on the collective’s improv skills. In the nearly two years that drummer Ali Nassar, guitarist Taylor Godsey, keyboardist Daryl Wolff, and bassist Peter Krause have been together as a group, they have established themselves as a band whose sum is greater than its parts. Tand tour the state of Florida extensively and made their Jerry Bash debut at Guanabanas earlier this year. Check Tand.Band for more details.     

Of One Mind are Adelin Jabrayan on vocals and violin, and Cory Ricardy on drums and percussion. The eclectic duo’s music is an amalgamation of violin, electronic synth samples, female vocals, powerful conscious lyrics, intricate percussion and unique drum rhythms. A fusion of electronica, trip-hop and R&B out of Delray Beach, Of One Mind perform extensively around the Palm Beach County area. NYE will be the duo’s premier at Guanabanas.
