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. Learn more at www.BalkunBrothers.com.  Showtime on March 16 is 9 p.m.

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.

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.
