Noche Latina at Guanabanas December 29


Electric Piquete and the Spam Allstars Return to Guanabanas for Noche Latina December 29

Monthly Latin music series closes 2018 with two of Miami’s premiere Latin funk bands

Jupiter, FL – December 6, 2018 – The final Noche Latina / Latin music night of 2018 promises to be a very funky one. Miami’s ElectricPiquete(4 p.m., all-ages) and The SpamAllstars(9 p.m., 21 and over) will grace the stage at Guanabanas Island Restaurant & Bar (location: 960 North Highway A1A Jupiter, FL 33477) on Saturday, December 29, 2018. Both performances are free.

“These two bands will create one seamless and absolutely danceable afternoon and evening for music fans,” says Talent Buyer Matt Cahur. “We always look forward to having them here and the local community has tended to respond quite positively to them.” Cahur founded Roots Music, Inc., more than 20 years ago, and has successfully managed rock and reggae acts, and produced and promoted local and regional concerts. He is the lead sound engineer, books all of the live music at the venue, and is also an accomplished guitarist.

Electric Piquete have the distinction of being the first band to play a Noche Latina, in addition to being two-time Miami New Times’ “Best Latin Band” award winners. They mix Latin jazz with American funk and rock elements to form a largely instrumental, instantly-catchy sound. The band are currently in preparations to back soul music legend Timmy Thomas (“Why Can’t We Live Together”) in a series of concerts and in the recording studio. More

The Spam Allstars are not only one of Miami’s most popular, well-known, and longest-running and accomplished bands, but they have been nominated for a Latin Grammy and toured nationally. Part hip-hop, part funk, part electronica, they were founded by musician, producer, and musicologist Andrew Yeomanson, AKA DJ Le Spam. The group’s latest release is their sixth full-length called Trans-Oceanic (2016). Learn more at

Noche Latina began as a Hispanic Heritage Month celebration three years ago and has remained a very popular recurring event. Guanabanas regularly hosts reggae, acoustic and surf-rock bands, so the Latin flavor serves as a quite an interesting musical counterpoint.
