The proceeds from this event will benefit the Miami Beach Botanical Garden, which suffered extensive damage due to hurricane Irma. Established in 1962, this treasure for the Miami Beach and South Florida community has served as a haven for communion with nature, meditation, concerts, children’s activities, corporate events and countless weddings. Because of the storm, much of the garden needs to be rebuilt, including the wetland with red mangrove and pond apple trees, an expansive water garden with a cascading oolite fountain, a diverse collections of flowering trees, palms, cycads, orchids, bromeliads and Florida native species.
The North Beach Bandshell is proud to host this special event featuring two of South Florida’s top bands, The Spam Allstars and Batuke Samba Funk. Known for their unique style, blending the turntables of DJ Le Spam (a.k.a Andrew Yeomanson) and Afro-Cuban dance grooves played by top musicians, The Spam Allstars are truly unique and helped redefine what is the “Miami sound”. Also performing is the powerhouse collective known as Batuke Samba Funk. As the name implies, the band brings together the percussive energy of Brazilian samba with the grooves of American funk. The result is an irresistible concoction that gets everyone on the dance floor.
