FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

Guanabanas’ Noche Latina Series Celebrates 1st Anniversary October 22

 Double dose of Miami Latin funk by Electric Piquete and the Spam Allstars fetes series and Hispanic Heritage Month

Jupiter, FL – October 11, 2016 – Around this time last year, Guanabanas Island Restaurant & Bar’s Talent Buyer Matt Cahur began to satiate demand for Latin culture at the Jupiter restaurant live music venue. By launching the monthly Noche Latina series, he not only brought regional and international Latino music acts to the North Palm Beach area on a more regular basis, but celebrated the flavor and diversity of the genre during Hispanic Heritage Month.

On Saturday, October 22, 2016, Guanabanas is marking the one year anniversary of the series by hosting a double header of Latin funk. Electric Piquete will play from 4 to 7 p.m. during happy hour, and the Spam Allstars are scheduled for a two-hour performance beginning at 9 p.m. Both shows are free and open to those 21 and over.

“These two acts represent the Miami sound extremely well and are crowd favorites at Guanabanas,” says Cahur. “They both feature a roster of extremely talented musicians, and both offer highly-danceable and infectious grooves. We invite everyone to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month with us once again.”

Electric Piquete, two-time Miami New Times “Best Latin Band”, fuse rock, jazz, funk, Afro-Caribbean, progressive and R&B influences with incendiary results. They recently issued their Singles Collection digitally and on CD, and released a video for their brand new single “Cut Me Loose”. The band made their debut at the Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival of Music & Dance in North Carolina on October 8. More information: www.ElectricPiquete.com.

The Spam Allstars are one of Miami’s most popular, well-known, longest-running and most accomplished bands. They have been nominated for a Latin Grammy, toured nationally, and this year played in South Africa as part of a cultural exchange sponsored by the U.S. Embassy & Consulates. The group is getting set to release a long-anticipated sixth full-length album called Trans-Oceanic. Learn more at www.SpamAllstars.com.

Guanabanas is located at 960 North Highway A1A Jupiter, FL 33477. For more information, please visit www.Guanabanas.com or call 561.747.8878.

Guanabanas Announces Noche Latina Summer Concert Lineup

 

Series at Jupiter waterfront restaurant, bar and music venue continues, presenting a variety of local and international Latin music acts

 

Jupiter, FL – May 31, 2016 – Launched as a monthly event last year just after Hispanic Heritage month, Guanabanas Island Restaurant & Bar’s Noche Latina, has become a more frequent theme for the Jupiter eatery and nightlife spot. Located at 960 North Highway A1A, Jupiter, FL 33477, Guanabanas will be presenting six Latin music concerts this summer, featuring some of South Florida’s finest Latin bands, and even a very prominent reggae / Latin band from Chile; more to be announced.

 

The schedule is as follows:

 

Friday, June 3 – Moska Project

Saturday, June 11 – Lanzallamas

Friday, June 24 – Gondwana

Sunday, July 3 – Electric Piquete (4 p.m.)

Saturday, July 23 – Spam Allstars

Friday, August 19 – Nag Champayons

 

“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.
