Jupiter, FL – December 8, 2016 – One of North Palm Beach County’s busiest and most well-known live music locales and eateries is hosting a New Year’s Eve bash featuring two of the area’s premiere groups. Guanabanas Island Restaurant & Bar is presenting Moska Project and The Ellemeno Beat on Saturday, December 31st, beginning at 9 p.m. There is no cover charge to attend; 21 and over are welcome.
Guanabanas features live music several times a week, for happy hour and during the evening.

“It’s only fitting to end the year and begin a new one with a lineup that best represents what we are all about as a live music venue,” says Talent Buyer Matt Cahur. “Moska Project are regulars here at Guanabanas, and their infectious and danceable progressive Latin rock sound is perfect for this occasion. The Ellemeno Beat will drench fans with their island-flavored surf rock energy. They are another mainstay here and fans always enjoy their surf party vibe.”
Moska Project’s style is a blend of Latin rock and reggae enhanced by guitar and saxophone jams. Moska’s organic sound and melodic tunes make them a favorite for audiences of all ages and backgrounds. They list Gipsy Kings, Cultura Profetica, G. Love, Ben Harper, Bob Marley, Cake, Coldplay, and The Doors among their influences. They issued a fourth release album in 2016, appropriately titled Cuatro, their first as a sextet.

The surf-crazed six-piece band, which song titles such as “6 Foot”, “ Pu in Sai” and “Too Deep”, released the five-song EP Party Wave in 2015.
