Guanabanas to Host 4th Annual Jerry Garcia Birthday Bash Sunday, July 28

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

All-day celebration of the music of the Grateful Dead and its legendary leader to feature six acts

Jupiter, FL – June 26, 2019 – In what has become a popular, annual tradition for Roots Music, Inc. and Guanabanas Island Restaurant & Bar (960 North Highway A1A Jupiter, FL 33477), the Jerry Garcia Birthday Bash will take place on Sunday, July 28, 2019. Beginning promptly at noon, the event features six incredible bands all celebrating the life and musical spirit of The Grateful Dead leader and his music. This year’s event is being sponsored by Cigar City Brewing Company. It is free and open to the public.

“We are incredibly excited to once again be hosting our Jerry Garcia Bash,” says Guanabanas talent buyer Matt Cahur. “While not all bands on the line up are Jerry or Dead tribute bands, expect everyone to celebrate the music of the era and embellish upon the music that Jerry brought to the table over the years.” There will also be vendors selling jewelry, accessories and Dead merch.

Unlimited Devotion was conceived in Miami on 2012, and is now dually based in the Tampa / St. Petersburg area and the Magic City. UD has played in all three of the previous Guanabanas Jerry tributes and are a very popular throughout the U.S. and especially South Florida. They are not a traditional Grateful Dead tribute band, as they don’t emulate the band’s song book. More so, they interpret it, expressing themselves through improvisation. More info: www.UnlimitedDevotion.com.

Guavatron is one part fruit, one part band, and one part transforming mechanized battle robot from another planet. Based in West Palm Beach, they place an emphasis on improvisation, creating a fresh sound at every show while keeping their roots of dance, rock, electronica, and funk involved. They also are veterans of each of Guanabanas’ Jerry fests. More information about them is available at Guavatron.com.

Spiral Light hails from Delray Beach and features the virtuoso guitar playing of Joni Bottari (formerly of Girl Jerry). A Dead tribute band, they played last year’s Jerry Bash, which served as their Guanabanas debut as well. Their band name comes from the Dead song “Terrapin Station”; they are also influenced by Pink Floyd and Bob Dylan. The quartet often performs throughout Palm Beach and Martin counties, and is available for private parties and events. More information: www.facebook.com/SpiralLightBand.

CBDB is a progressive rock, jam-band from Alabama and their music is spreading from the Southeast across the nation like wildfire. Defining a newfound southern blend of joyous and progressive rock ‘n roll, they channel a sonic mix of soulful vocals and virtuosic musicianship with smart, tasteful songwriting. They have just released their third full-length album called Out of Line, which was recorded at Zac Brown’s legendary Southern Ground Nashville studio. cbdbmusic.com

The Heavy Pets are a funked up rock and roll band from South Florida who are returning to the Jerry Bash after headlining the 2nd annual affair in 2017. Relix Magazine has called them “a living, breathing force of nature”, and they embody this musically by constantly touring the State of Florida and the United States. Previously, they played an all-Dead set they call “Heavy Dead”, and it remains to be seen what they have in store this year. www.TheHeavyPets.com

Formed in 2018 in South Florida, TAND means well-sunned skin and musically represents a fusion of rock, funk and soul. Formed from the ashes of several groups and fused by a mutual love for a dearly departed bandmate (Tripp Gray from Sawgrass Express), the band’s number one priority is for the listener to enjoy their funky-spirited, high-energy, improvisational, dancing rock and roll with heart and soul. Learn more at Tand.Band.

Dancehall Legend King Yellowman’s Tour Winds through Guanabanas July 10

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Jamaica’s biggest star not surnamed Marley plays the Jupiter waterfront venue with special guest Reggae Force, presented by the Mashup Reggae brand

Jupiter, FL – June 21, 2019 – Roots Music, Inc. and Mashup Reggae present Jamaica’s very first dancehall superstar King Yellowman live at Guanabanas Island Restaurant & Bar during their weekly BIG WEDNESDAYS night, July 10, 2010. Special guest Reggae Force from Fort Lauderdale will kick off the night at 8 p.m. Show is free, open to those 21 and over. Guanabanas, the award-winning and popular waterfront venue, is located at 960 N Hwy A1A, Jupiter, FL 33477.

“Yellowman is credited for assuming the mantle of reggae music when Bob Marley passed away and with taking it to another level,” says Talent Buyer Matt Cahur. “We are excited and honored about hosting a figure of his stature at Guanabanas.” Cahur founded Roots Music, Inc. more than 20 years ago and now manages rock and reggae acts, and produces and promotes local and regional concerts. He is also the venue’s lead sound engineer and hospitality master, and is an accomplished songwriter and guitarist to boot.

Born Winston Foster in Negril, Jamaica in 1950, Yellowman overcame the twin hardships of being born an albino and raised at the Maxfield Orphanage in Kingston to lead a prolific recording and touring career as Jamaica’s boastful and cheeky dancehall king. His first major break came in 1979 when he won the Tastee Patties Talent Contest. He began issuing major label and independent releases in the early 80s, spanning into the new millennium. He is best known for the hits “Me Kill Barnie”, “Operation Eradication”, and “Shorties”.

His latter era career has seen him collaborate the producer Philip Burrell, AKA Fatis and release music through the Ras label. Yellowman’s message has become more socially conscious, with tracks like “Stop Beat Woman”, which condemned domestic violence, and “Free Africa”, which spoke out against apartheid.  Although his trademark rapid-fire delivery has slowed a bit, he remains a lyrical force and a dynamic live performer.

Reggae Force is made of up some of South Florida’s best reggae musicians, including one with Wailers pedigree: Junior Jazz on vocals and guitar, Aston Barrett, Jr. (son of bass player “Family Man”) on drums, Alaina Reed on bass, and Peter Pan “Sprangy” Williamson on keys.  They also serve as backing band for Wayne Stoddart & Mystic Soul, and are getting set to release new album featuring their latest single “Ready for the Show!”

Mashup Reggae is a lifestyle media, entertainment and independent apparel brand with a strong focus on the roots of American and international reggae music. Listen live online at www.MashupReggae.com.

Multi-Genre Musical March Madness at Guanabanas

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Run of three shows March 16 to 20 to showcase musical diversity offered at the Jupiter waterfront venue, one of which celebrates St. Patrick’s Day

Jupiter, FL – March 5, 2019 – March is known for the coming of spring, a major college basketball tournament, and the celebration of a popular Irish saint. At Guanabanas Island Restaurant & Bar, the month will also serve as a testament to the incredible range of music offered up to fans, particularly the stretch of shows planned for mid-March. It includes the debut of the Balkun Brothers on the 16th, a special Exmag St. Patrick’s Day 4 p.m. show, and the return of Roosevelt Collier on the 20th. The popular waterfront venue is located at 960 North Highway A1A Jupiter, FL 33477; all performances are free and open to those 21 and over.

“The third week of the month is going to be pure fire and we’re excited to be presenting this wide a range of music,” says Talent Buyer Matt Cahur. “The Balkun Brothers are a duo of seriously talented siblings, Exmag’s sound is very unique to say the least, and Roosevelt ‘The Doctor’, is very well known and loved around these parts.” Cahur founded Roots Music, Inc. more than 20 years ago, which has allowed him to successfully manage rock and reggae acts, and produce / promote local and regional concerts. He is the lead sound engineer and books all of the live music at Guanabanas; Matt is also an accomplished songwriter and guitarist.

An internationally touring rock n’ roll band, the Balkun Brothers hail from Hartford, CT. Their sound is equal parts rock, blues and metal forged by older brother Steve’s custom-built baritone and resonator guitars, and younger brother Nick’s relentless drum pounding. They are touring in support of their new release on the French imprint Dixiefrog Records called Devil on TV, which was recorded in part at the legendary Sun Studios in Memphis, TN and produced by the heavy-hitting rock engineer Steve Albini.

Minnesota hip-hop / jazz trio Exmag will perform a special early set on Sunday, March 17, beginning at 4 p.m. The band’s brand of funk evokes the Twin Cities’ musical godfather Prince, but breaks new ground with its smooth electronic originality. EDM Chicago insists that “there is nothing less than real about these fellas”, and the Huffington Post said of their music: “familiar as it is unique, reaching across genres and audiences”. Listen at exmagworldwide.com.

Turnout at Guanabanas is always high for Roosevelt Collier, as his take on soul, funk and R&B is sonically and hip shakingly appealing. A veteran of the music festival set, where has performed with the likes of the Allman Brothers, TedeschiTrucks, Los Lobos , the Del McCoury Band and more, Roosevelt is now on tour promoting his debut album called Exit 16, which in the artist’s words is him “telling a story of who I am, where I’m from, and where I’m going.” Learn more at www.RooseveltCollier.com; music begins at 9 p.m. on the 20th of March.

Guanabanas Celebrates 10 Years 12/26

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Guanabanas Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary December 26

Award-winning waterfront venue begins second decade of serving the Jupiter community with all-day specials and a triple-header of live music

Jupiter, FL – November 27, 2018 – Ten years in the restaurant business is quite an amazing achievement. Guanabanas Island Restaurant & Bar is much more than just a restaurant, however. For a decade, the popular waterfront venue located at 960 North Highway A1A Jupiter, FL 33477, near the Jupiter Inlet and on the east bank of the Loxahatchee River, has not only been presenting the best live local, regional and national acts, but also giving back to the community, all while racking up some impressive awards.

“A commitment to providing our clients the highest quality ingredients, incredible support from our local community plus a family-friendly atmosphere has been the key to our success,” says Vice President Jon Sullivan. “We intend to continue to offer the best fresh from Florida seafood, the finest entertainment, and to keep Guanabanas a great place for people to come hang out with friends and family.”

Clients can take advantage of food and drink specials the entire day after Christmas as part of the celebration, including $3 bottle beers and well drinks, $6 signature drinks, Fat Cubans, and old school burritos, as well as 50-cent wings and clams. There will be live entertainment by The String Assassins, Clement Aubrey and One Tribe, and Moska Project from 4 p.m. to 12 midnight. Admission is free; 21 and over are welcome from 9 p.m. onward.

“It’s been an absolute pleasure programming  the music here for the last 10 years,” says Talent Buyer Matt Cahur. “I’m looking forward to the celebration and to 10 more great years.” Cahur is the founder of Roots Music, which manages acts, and produces and promotes local and regional concerts. He not only designed the sound system at Guanabanas, but is the lead sound engineer and books all of the live music at the venue.

From its humble beginnings as a one-time sandwich shop / kayak rental place in 2004-2005, Guanabanas has grown into a local mainstay. Building on the “Old Florida” look and feel, owners President Chad Van Boven, along with his wife Jeannie, created a sense of community, first hosting a charity-driven “Therapy Thursdays” event that evolved into the recurring Give Back Thursday, which has helped many local charities, and raising more than $180k during the last half-dozen years.

Along the way, Guanabanas has been named “Best Waterfront Restaurant” by the Palm Beach Post and “Best Restaurant” by SouthFlorida.com, been featured on PBS Local, Emeril’s Florida, Chef Michele Bernstein’s Check Please, become a favorite hangout of professional athletes and international celebrities, launched a successful monthly Latin Music Night, and rolled out both a food truck and a delectable weekend brunch menu.
