Jupiter, FL – March 14, 2017 – Guanabanas Island Restaurant & Bar is a veritable oasis for live music, especially of the Caribbean kind. On Friday, March 24, down under reggae greats Katchafire will make a tour stop at the venue located at 960 North Highway A1A Jupiter, FL 33477), for an evening of music along with special guests Inna Vision. Show begins at 8 p.m., there is no cover to attend, and 21 and over are welcome. The event is being co-presented by Roots Music and Boulevard Brewing.
“Getting Katchafire to come to Guanabanas is a major score not just for lovers of reggae music, but live music fans in general,” says Talent Buyer Matt Cahur. “They combine ska and reggae and a high-energy performance with incendiary results. Inna Vision is an equally solid get for us and will be a treat for fans as well.” Cahur’s music promotions firm Roots Music has been booking, managing, and promoting reggae acts, shows and festivals for almost 20 years.
Originally a Bob Marley tribute band named after the legend’s debut recording with the Wailers Catch a Fire, Katchafire’s history begins in 1997 at the group’s hometown of Hamilton, New Zealand, in the Waikato region of the country’s North Island. Their 2002 debut single “Giddy Up” became the top-selling release of that year, which in turn made the debut full-length Revival a smash. The group now has four albums to its credit and is currently touring in support of retrospective collection called Best of So Far. Learn more at www.katchafire.co.nz.
