Road to Afro Roots Begins in Jupiter on January 25-26

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Road to Afro Roots Fest 21 Begins at Guanabanas in Jupiter on January 25-26

Colombia’s Grupo Barrio Abajo, Cuba’s Cortadito and the Republic of Congo’s Toto Omana open the third decade of one of South Florida’s longest-running music festivals

Jupiter, FL – November 27, 2018 – The 21st iteration of the Afro Roots Fest will pick up right where it left off – taking the music directly to the people, instead of having them travel to one signature event as in year’s past. The kickoff event will again take place at Guanabanas Island Restaurant & Bar (960 N Highway A1A, Jupiter, Florida 33477) over the span of two days. Grupo Barrio Abajo opens the festivities Friday, January 25, 2018 with a 21 and over performance beginning at 9 p.m. The following day, Saturday, January 26, Cortadito (4 to 7 p.m., all ages welcome) and Toto Omana (9 p.m., 21 and over) round out the Road to Afro Roots lineup.

“It gives me great joy to start the journey to the Afro Roots Fest by presenting these three diverse groups at what is Palm Beach’s premiere live music venue,” says Jose Elias, founder and executive director of Community Arts and Culture (CAC). “We are excited to bring the Jupiter music-loving community a slice of the Caribbean and some amazing sounds from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Fans will love the brilliant crossover artist that is Toto Omana.” Elias is a guitarist / tres player who performs with the Spam Allstars, and his own groups Cortadito and the Nag Champayons. He is also a producer and Grammy-nominated musician and recording artist.

They present styles such as cumbia, bullerengue, porro, chandé and more than thirty other unparalleled musical rhythms. Globally, their home country is known for cumbia and vallenato, but these are just two pieces from their puzzle of musical heritage. Barrio Abajo’s professional musicians intend to change this perception. Learn more about them here: www.facebook.com/grupobarrioabajo.

Cortadito’s specialty is performing Cuban music from the early 20th century, which transports listeners to a time when Trio Matamoros and Ignacio Piniero ruled the Cuban music world.  The band, who recently released a new EP of music called Canciones de Julio, faithfully performs standards in the traditional stylings called Son MontunoGuarachaBoleroNengon, and Bolero Son. Cortadito is occasionally is backed by a variety of guest musicians, which gives the group a sound reminiscent of the Buena Vista Social Club. Learn more at www.CortaditoSon.com.

The singer / songwriter / guitarist from Kinshasa, Republic of Congo Omana is primarily influenced by Franco and OK Jazz. His music combines African Soukous with American R&B, funk, and soul. Toto speaks more than 12 languages, and also sings in Swahili, Mandingo, English, Spanish, and French, and appeared as a guest on the Grammy-nominated group, Conjunto Progreso’s record Master Sessions Descarga & Son. He is set to release a full-length set on Afro Roots Recordings in 2019, which is being produced by Elias.

“We’re happy to able to continue building on this wonderful musical relationship with Guanabanas and Roots Music, Inc., and continue to make the festival accessible to world music fans in Palm Beach,” adds Elias. The festival will also feature a variety of local and international acts, and is being held at venues throughout South Florida.

Guanabanas Serves Cortadito, the Nag Champayons and DJ Ephniko for Noche Latina August 25

Monthly Latin music series returns with two Miami-based bands – one Cuban folk and the other Afro-Galactic / tropidelic funk – plus a world music DJ

Jupiter, FL – August 6, 2018 – Noche Latina, the monthly Latin music series at Guanabanas Island Restaurant & Bar (960 North Highway A1A, Jupiter, FL 33477), returns on Saturday, August 25, 2018, beginning at 4 p.m.  and will feature Cortadito (Cuban folk), the Nag Champayons (Afro-Galactic / Tropidelic), and DJ Ephniko (multi-cultural tunes). Experience the best South Florida-based Latino music acts in an enchanting, outdoor setting on the Loxahatchee River. No cover, all ages welcome to the early show; 21 and over after 9 p.m.

“The double bill of of Cortadito and the Nag Champayons is an excellent mix that our loyal Latin music fans very much enjoy,” says Guanabanas talent buyer Matt Cahur. “The combination of Cuban folk and spaced-out Miami funk is a potent one, and adding Ephniko to the mix means we are in for quite a flavorful afternoon and evening.” Cahur is the head of Roots Music, Inc., which for 20 years has offered music management, production and promotions services out of Jupiter. Cahur is also the master sound engineer at Guanabanas.

From inception, Cortadito’s focus has been performing the traditional Cuban music of the early 20th century: the Son MontunoGuarachaBolerosNengon, and Bolero Son styles. This dynamic ensemble brings the listener back to a time when Trio Matamoros, or Ignacio Piniero ruled the Cuban music world, and when Son Montuno was influencing music throughout the globe. From time to time, Cortadito is backed by a variety of guest musicians, which gives the group a sound reminiscent of the Buena Vista Social Club. Learn more at www.CortaditoSon.com.

The Baranquilla, Colombia-born MC approaches crowds as a rhythm shaman looking to heal their stress and sadness by taking them on a journey. He does so by combining tribal-like acoustic sounds from folklore all over the world with the electromechanical vibrations of the first world inner cities where he found his musical voice.

There is no cover; 21 and over are welcome after 9 p.m. For more information, please call 561.747.8878 or visit www.Guanabanas.com.

3rd Annual Guanabanas Jerry Garcia Bash July 29

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

3rd Annual Guanabanas Jerry Garcia Birthday Bash Set for Sunday, July 29

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

Jupiter, FL – July 10, 2018 – Jerry Garcia once said of the Grateful Dead: “We’re like licorice. Not everybody likes licorice, but the people who like licorice really like licorice.” There must be hundreds of licorice aficionados in and near Jupiter given the reaction to and popularity of the first two Jerry Garcia Birthday Bashes at Guanabanas Island Restaurant & Bar (960 North Highway A1A Jupiter, FL 33477). This year’s event is being sponsored by Boulevard Brewing Company and Suerte Tequila.

“We’re excited to be once again paying tribute to the godfather of the jam band scene with a celebration that includes seven of the best South Florida jam bands around,” says Guanabanas talent buyer Matt Cahur. The music begins at noon, there is no cover, and the show is all-ages. There will also be vendors selling jewelry, accessories and Dead merch. There will be a Boulevard craft beer tent, as well as a Suerte Tequila tent.

Based in Delray Beach, Unlimited Devotion has played in each of the previous two Guanabanas Jerry bashes. UD, very popular throughout the U.S. and especially South Florida, are not a traditional Grateful Dead tribute band. They don’t emulate the band’s song book as much as interpret it, expressing themselves through improvisation. Band interests include: jazz, table tennis, team snoring and synchronized yawning. More info: www.facebook.com/UDMusic.

Equal parts fruit, band and transforming mechanized battle robot from another planet, Guavatron is a fusion four-piece based in West Palm Beach. With emphasis on improvisation, Guavatron creates a fresh sound at every show while keeping their roots of dance, rock, electronica, and funk involved. They are another act to have played Guanabanas’ Jerry fests one and two. More details are available at guavatron.bandcamp.com.

The Daniel Heitz Band is the first of four newcomers to the party. Led by their guitar prodigy namesake, the Orlando-based trio combines blues, soul, bluesrock and funk to form a Southern-fried, axe-driven powerhouse. DHB play extensively throughout Central Florida and will also be making their Guanabanas debut. Learn more at www.DanielHeitz.com.

Uproot Hootenany describe themselves as “roots, folk, Celtic, bluegrass, whiskey-fueled fun” and are based in Deerfield Beach. The four- piece band features some of South Florida’s top string instrument players, love pickin’ and grinnin’, and play originals and inventive covers by everyone from The Rolling Stones to Johnny Cash. They are the third of three bands to have played at each of Guanabanas’ Jerry bashes. More details are available at www.uproothootenanny.com.

The Legacy Orchestra Collective is a festival-style reggae / funk / soul jam band made up of numerous members from local bands that come together to perform original compositions along with many favorites of any era. Based in Clermont, FL, the band lists Bob Marley, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Grateful Dead, and Umphrey’s McGee as main influences. More: www.facebook.com/LegacyOrchestraCollective.

Delray Beach is home to Spiral Light, another Jerry bash newbie. A Grateful Dead tribute act, the band’s name is fittingly taken from a line in the outstanding Dead tune “Terrapin Station”. The five-piece band performs regularly throughout Palm Beach and Martin counties, and is available for private parties and events. Learn more about them here: www.facebook.com/SpiralLightBand. They are also making their Guanabanas debut.

Flint Blade is a one-man Chapman stick / vocal performer. His brand of ambient, beat-driven psychedelia with folk, jazz and dub reggae influences make him extraordinarily unique. Flint shares music in love through song, rhythm and harmony. A veteran of several Guanabanas brunch engagements, Flint will be playing a Jerry Garcia Birthday Bash for the first time. Learn more here: www.flintblade.net.

Electric Piquete & Xperimento play Guanabanas July 21

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Guanabanas Hosts Electric Piquete and Xperimento for Noche Latina July 21

Latin funk band and Latin Reggae / Urban Soul group play in Jupiter during monthly Latin music night

Jupiter, FL – July 9, 2018 – Jupiter, FL – July 9, 2018 – Two bands from Miami will bring a musical summer sizzle to the Guanabanas Island Restaurant & Bar stage Saturday, July 21, 2018: two-time Miami New Times “Best Latin Band” Electric Piquete (4 p.m.) and the Grammy-nominated Xperimento (9 p.m.), marking the debut for the latter. The monthly Noche Latina music series is going on its third year and features some of South Florida’s top Latin music talent at the sublime waterfront venue. Guanabanas is located at 960 N Hwy A1A, Jupiter, FL 33477. No cover, 21 and over welcome to the evening show.

“This month’s lineup promises to be quite a spectacular experience for fans of Latin funk and reggae,” says Guanabanas talent buyer Matt Cahur. “Electric Piquete are a cornerstone in our Latin Night programming, and they never disappoint. I’m excited to welcome Xperimento and their extremely talented musicians to the fold, and I’m looking forward to sharing their multicultural vibe.” Cahur owns and operates Roots Music, Inc., a Jupiter-based music promotions company active for more than two decades. He also oversees the live music bookings at Guanabanas and is the venue’s lead sound engineer.

Electric Piquete is a veritable melting pot of musical goodness, borrowing heavily from the early 70s Latin soul / Fania All-Stars sound, enhancing the groove with American funk and rock influences, mixed in with some jazz sensibilities. The mostly instrumental band mixes original music with inventive interpretations of standards, and uses improvisation as a vehicle to take listeners on a Afro-Caribbean journey of sound. They are set to enter the studio later this summer to produce a full-length recording. More details: www.ElectricPiquete.com.

Xperimento blends world sounds such as Cumbia, reggae, ska, Salsa, Merengue, Dembo, Kuduru and funk with elements of rock, R&B, hip-hop and dancehall. Members of the band have recorded and performed with world-famous artists including Prince, Enrique Iglesias, Ricky Martin, Fonseca, Paulina Rubio and Alejandra Guzman to name just a few. Their debut album Second Floor continues to make fans dance, as the band tour and continuing to self-produce their highly-anticipated third album. Learn more here: www.Xperimento.com.

Guanabanas is gearing up to celebrate its 10th anniversary with an exciting new announcement coming soon. They continue to offer a weekend brunch buffet, and have a food truck and catering services available. Guanabanas’ award-winning menu features breakfast, lunch and dinner items, all locally-sourced and unbelievably fresh. Signature cocktails include the Coconut Mojito, a Mango Beach Break, and the Guanabanas’ Cat 5; their wine list only contains labels produced in an Earth-friendly manner.
