Zach Deputy Plays Guanabanas in Jupiter 9/13

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Zach Deputy Returns to Guanabanas September 13

 Soulful R&B singer-songwriter touring in support of new full-length recording Wash It in the Water

Jupiter, FL – September 1, 2016 – Georgia-based multi-instrumentalist Zach Deputy cannot stay away from Jupiter for long. His return to Guanabanas Island Restaurant and Bar (960 N Highway A1A, Jupiter, FL 33477) Tuesday, September 13, 2016 comes on the heels of a packed-house performance May 8, and is part of a promotional tour for his new release titled Wash It in the Water. Deputy’s fourth album is an amalgamation of sunny, soulful new sounds that fuse hip-hop, funk, and folky pop with the spirited rhythms of soca and calypso. Admission is free and 21 and over are welcome; the music begins at 8 p.m.

Zach’s self-described “Island-infused, Drum ‘n’ Bass, Gospel-Ninja-Soul” is a product of an upbringing that was heavily influenced by a very musical family matriarch. “When I was a kid my grandma would play a lot of salsa and soca and make me get up and dance to it, so in a way this is me putting my own spin on all that and bringing those sounds into a whole new era.” The first single is called “Chevrolet” and it plays like a joyful soul / church revival held on a Caribbean beach.

“Zach’s tropically-infused sound is a perfect fit for Guanabanas and always seems to strike the right chord with our live music devotees,” says Talent Buyer Matt Cahur. “I’m excited about watching him perform his new material and am looking forward to what will likely be another memorable evening of live music.” Cahur also heads Roots Music, Inc., a management and promotional company that produces events such as the upcoming “Reggae on the Other River” concert coming to Guanabanas October 9.

Guanabanas, one of Jupiter’s premier live music venues, prides itself on a diverse musical offering as tasty as its award-winning menu. The Noche Latina series, launched just after Hispanic Heritage Month in 2015, features prominent local, regional and national Latin music acts at least once a month. On September 17, Cuban-born singer / composer Danay Suarez will perform for the second time; the series celebrates its first anniversary October 22 with a doubleheader of Miami-based Latin funk by Electric Piquete and the Spam Allstars.

“Reaction to our Latin music night continues to get stronger each time we host it,” says Talent Buyer Matt Cahur. “We’re excited about our current lineup, which promises something for every type of Latin music fan: funk, reggae, roots, fusion.”  Cahur’s decision to launch a Latin music night was based in part by the diversity of South Florida and the emergence of Latin American culture in the area.

Moska Project is a six-piece Latin roots rock band based in Jupiter that plays a fusion of reggae and Afro-Cuban music. They have been writing and performing original material since 2002, touring the East Cost of the U.S. and sharing the stage with artists such as 311, G-Love, Yellowman, just to name a few. They will be celebrating the release of their collection of new material titled Cuatro on June 3. Find out more at www.MoskaProject.com.

The five-piece modern Afro-Latino folkloric group known as Lanzallamas combines salsa, cumbia and electronic elements into an original and hypnotic sound. Led by singers / percussionists Fabio Patiño and Cintia Lovo, the group has appeared at the Finger Lakes, Shakori Hills and Virginia Key GrassRoots Festivals, as well as at several other Miami-based music and arts events. Additional details are available here: www.Lanzamusica.com.

Formed in 1987 during a time of extreme political oppression, Chile’s Gondwana has become one of South America’s most well-known bands. The chart-topping group’s “reggae & roll” sound is inspired equally by Bob Marley and The Police; their debut performance at Guanabanas on June 24 will also be hosted by Lance-O from Kulcha Shok Muzik. Learn more about them at www.Gondwana.cl.

Founded in 2007, Electric Piquete is an award-winning Miami-based Latin funk band that has been featured on CNN and played countless South Florida venues and music festivals. Twice named “Best Latin Band” by the Miami New Times (2009 and 2015), the band is currently working on a new soul / funk single featuring vocalist Maco Monthervil, to be released this summer. Learn more at www.ElectricPiquete.com.

The Spam Allstars, long a favorite of Guanabanas’ regular music-loving crowd, in large part define current day “Miami sound”, combining elements of electronic music with funk and Afro-Cuban rhythms. The Latin Grammy-nominated outfit is led by musician, producer and audiophile Andrew Yeomanson, AKA DJ Le Spam. They maintain a weekly residency in Little Havana which has run for more than a decade and actively tour Florida and the U.S.  More details: www.SpamAllstars.com.

Self-described as “Afrogalactic / tropidelic”, the Nag Champayons have long set the standard for improvisational and multi-ethnic musical brilliance in Miami. The band released a tidal wave of new music in 2015 with Rising Sounds of a Sinking City, an eight-movement, 21-minute theme weaving together sonic textures from Africa to Colombia, then Stateside via Cuba, all converging into a frenzied psychedelic finale. Visit www.NagChampayons.com for more information.

Guanabanas is an open air restaurant and bar with woven tiki huts and banyan trees towering overhead and hand-chiseled coquina stone pathways underfoot. The team maintains a laid-back, island atmosphere where everyone is welcome. All performances, unless otherwise noted, begin at 9 p.m. and are free and open to the public. 21 and over are welcome Fridays and Saturdays; Sunday performances are all-ages.

Zach Deputy at Guanabanas May 8

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Zach Deputy Plays Free, All-Ages Show at Guanabanas May 8


Soulful R&B singer-songwriter performs at Jupiter venue with special guest Brett Staska

Miami, FL – April 26, 2016 –  The one man band phenom from South Carolina known as Zach Deputy will once again grace the Guanabanas Island Restaurant and Bar stage Sunday, May 8, 2016, beginning at 4 p.m. with supporting act Brett Staska. The show caps a weekend of roots / reggae live music performances at the venue located at 960 North Highway A1A, Jupiter, FL 33477; there is never a cover. Now based in Savannah, GA, the multi-instrumentalist / singer-songwriter Deputy is currently on tour all over the U.S. promoting his latest release “Keep On Moving”, which features backing musicians known as The Hashtags.

Zach’s musical influences are varied and extremely diverse. Growing up, the music of his Puerto Rican, Cruzan and Irish heritage included Calypso rhythms and folk songs of St. Croix combined with the R&B / soul of legends like James Brown and Ray Charles. As Deputy matured and honed his craft, a unique hybrid of these influences emerged, ultimately creating a signature sound the artist dubbed “Island-infused, Drum ‘n’ Bass, Gospel-Ninja-Soul”. His live show is enhanced by looping technology and is a literal one man dance party.

“We’ve been a fan of Zach’s infectious sound for a long time now,” says Talent Buyer Matt Cahur. “We’re happy to have him back as he has become one of J-Town’s favorite artists.” He has played Guanabanas several times over the last few years, even issuing a live recording from November 2010 on Bandcamp. Opener Staska, also a solo performer, released his debut four-song “sunburnt folk-rock” EP in June of 2015; he also performs with the roots / reggae band Roots Shakedown.

Guanabanas hosts Sammy J’s reggae / soul from down under Friday, May 6, then Herbal Krew the following night May 7 – both shows are free, open to 21 and over, and begin at 9 p.m. Zach Deputy closes the weekend with this specialSunday afternoon concert at 4 p.m. – this show is free and all-ages.

ABOUT GUANABANAS

Guanabanas is dedicated to providing each guest with a truly unique outdoor dining experience. We have designed our company and our restaurant in an unorthodox way to help achieve the high standards we have set for ourselves in the disciplines of service, food, atmosphere/ambiance, waterfront location, landscape design, outdoor temperature control and the overall sensory experience.

We feel it is necessary to provide a true “Florida” experience with our creative outdoor restaurant design which utilizes quality exotic/local plants and trees, Key West/Old Florida styled structures, hand-built cheeky huts from the native Indian tribes of Florida, fresh Florida seafood and a premium bar with a national live music calendar.

Giving back to the community is such a focal point for our company’s mission that we developed a monthly event we have termed “Give Back Thursdays” to help feed the need of our community organizations. With our “Give Back Thursdays” event we have partnered with some fantastic companies to help drive donations where money is badly needed, as well as giving away our stage space to allow the charities to showcase their cause.

Guanabanas helps support many local charities, such as the Surfrider Foundation, Pink Purses, Martin Memorial Hospital, Haiti Relief Effort, Freedom Flight for WWII Vets by the Martin County Firefighters, Jupiter High Surf Team, Friends of Jupiter Beach, Vita Nova House, and many others.
