The Big Bang

Next date: Aug 18, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

Music by Jed Feuer and book and lyrics by Boyd Graham.

In this whirlwind musical, two comedy writers try to raise enough “dough” for the most historically expansive show ever conceived, about the ENTIRE history of the universe. In a record 90 minutes, both actors are put to the test as they try to convince their potential theatrical backers (the audience) that this insane frivolity is somehow worthy of the authors’ unrealistic hopes and aspirations. The Big Bang has become the most asked about show in our 30-year history, and yes, we’re bringing it back with a BANG just for you!

Tal Cohen

Friday, Aug 24, 2018 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM - English

Tal Cohen’s unique piano style owes its roots to the Jewish folk songs and classical music he played in his formative years growing up in Israel and later Australia.

In July 2011, Tal performed at the Melbourne Jazz Festival in the “Jamie Oehlers Quartet” which featured Australia’s Jamie Oehlers on saxophone as well as highly acclaimed New York drummer Ari Hoenig, and Sam Anning on bass. Tal has also had the honour of playing with iconic modern jazz bassist, Bob Hurst in Melbourne and Perth shows in June 2012, alongside Jamie Oehlers and drummer Jacob Evans.

“Yellow Sticker”, Tal’s first album as a leader, was released in December 2011. Consisting largely of original tunes, it showcases some of Perth’s finest musicians with Jamie Oehlers on saxophone, Chris Tarr on drums and Pete Jeavons on bass. The album enjoyed an enthusiastic reception from local audiences and the Australian newspaper gave it an impressive 4-star review. The album has already had extensive radio airplay in Australia and on radio stations around Los Angeles and was also featured in full length on Israeli radio station, Reshet Bet in April 2012. To promote the album, Tal teamed up with Oehlers again and in October 2012 the duo played shows in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, joined by highly acclaimed musicians in each city to complete the quartet.

In May 2013 Tal performed a number of shows with world-renowned saxophonist Joe Lovano at the inaugural Perth International Jazz Festival, including a sold-out performance at the Perth Concert Hall to a 1000-large audience. Tal was also honoured to present a set of his original music at this highly successful jazz festival. In September 2013, Tal was chosen to be one of 10 semi-finalists in the Wangaratta Jazz Festival’s 2013 piano competition- Australia’s most renowned and fierce jazz competition.

Now in the US, he has had the opportunity to play with drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts, and West Coast-based trumpeter John Daversa, Grammy Award-winning trumpeter and composer Terence Blanchard, and acclaimed New York saxophonist Greg Osby.

“Tal Cohen is one of the brightest stars playing the piano to come along in a long time and has the promise of being at the top of the curve changing our minds about music.” –Terence Blanchard, DownBeat

“a sparkling jewel of a reward, a sublime, breathtaking effort that is a modern classic.” – Eric Taylor, AllAboutJazz

“Tal’s playing is full of passion, focus, and creativity.” – Joe Lovano, DownBeat

Tonight he will be joined by award-winning trumpeter Jean Caze, bassist Dion Kerr, and drummer David Chiverton.

Guitar Shorty

Saturday, Aug 25, 2018 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM - English

  • David Abrams- Guitar
  • Dan Gerass– Drums
  • Christopher Jones– Bass
  • Malcolm Lukens– Keyboard, Left-hand bass and vocals

Legendary guitarist/vocalist Guitar Shorty is a giant in the blues world. Compared to both Jimi Hendrix and Buddy Guy, Guitar Shorty has been electrifying audiences for five decades with his supercharged live shows and his incendiary recordings. Like a bare-knuckled boxer, Shorty strikes with his blistering, physical guitar playing and his fierce vocals, connecting directly with body and soul. What really sets shorty apart is his unpredictable, off-the-wall guitar playing. He reaches for sounds, riffs and licks that other blues players wouldn’t even think of.

Through the years, Shorty has performed with blues and R&B luminaries like Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, B. B. King, Guitar Slim and T-Bone Walker. He Started playing with these legends while still in his teens and recorded a handful of singles for a variety of labels and an obscure LP during the first 30 years of his career. After decades of paying his dues, it took a tour a England to establish shorty’s fame in his home country. His recordings since then all received massive critical acclaim, and his renowned live performance have kept him constantly in demand all over the world. His 2004 Alligator Records debut, Watch Your Back, became his best-received, best-selling album to date. His 2006 follow-up, We The People, won the coveted Blues Music Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album Of The Year. Now, with his new CD, Bare Knuckle, Guitar Shorty unleashes a barrage of hard-hitting combinations of guitar, vocals and lyrics, hitting his listeners with some of the most awe-inspiring and vocal work of his long career.

Produced by veteran Los-Angeles songwriter and bassist Wyzard, Bare Knuckle finds Guitar Shorty singing and playing with ferocious urgency and a fierce righteousness. Bare Knuckle’s blues burns with heavy rock and roll fire from start to finish, putting Shorty’s infectious energy and guitar pyrotechnics on full display. From the up-to-the-minute “Please Mr. President” to the celebratory “Texas Women” to the politically charged “Slow Burn,” Guitar Shorty has created an album that is as memorable for its menacing, slashing guitar work as it is for its defiant vocals and hard-rocking spirit.

In a major feature in Texas Music Magazine, writer John Morthland summed things up perfectly, saying “Axebuster extraordinaire guitar Shorty is an old-school guitar showman. He plays the technique and flash, without ever sacrificing the passion. He’s a blues-rock hero.” GuitarOne declared, “be prepared for a mighty surprise if you are tired of the same old blues and have never heard Guitar Shorty rip. With his harmonically saturated tone, soaring sustain, lethal licks and heavyweight blues-rock grooves, shorty is not the be overlooked.” Now, with bare Knuckles and his one-two punch of blistering guitar work and passionate vocal, his combination of lyrically deep songs and one-of-a-kind live shows, Guitar Shorty proves again that he is one of today’s true, undisputed heavyweight champions of the blues.

Georges is the owner of the La Cage Aux Folles nightclub, which features a drag show starring his partner and the love of his life, Albin. After twenty years of un-wedded bliss, Georges and his partner Albin face the hardest challenge of their relationship, yet: meeting their son, Jean-Michel’s fiance’s parents. Albin has always raised Jean-Michel, Georges’ biological son, as his own. But when Jean-Michel falls in love and becomes engaged to the daughter of an ultra-conservative, anti-gay politician, Georges feels compelled to try to present a more “traditional” family to Jean-Michel’s potential in-laws. When Albin tries and fails to take on a masculine persona in the role of Uncle Al, he gets more creative in order to find a way to be part of the “meet the parents” experience. Based on Jean Poiret’s 1973 French play of the same name, the multi-Tony award-winning La Cage Aux Folles is a musical filled with delightful spectacle and great heart.

Greg Diamond & Nuance Quartet

Friday, Sep 21, 2018 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM - English

Critically acclaimed guitarist, composer, and bandleader Greg Diamond creates music inspired by Latin American sounds and rhythms which he seamlessly infuses into the context of contemporary jazz — with modal harmonies, compound meters, and various other elements that comprise the vibrant and dynamic musical tapestry of his native city of New York. All About Jazz hails Diamond, who is of mixed Colombian and Jewish origin, as “a rising star in the New York jazz scene..”Latin Jazz Network writes that Diamond is a “composer of great maturity and genius” and featured his sophomore release “Conduit” [Dot Time 2012] as an Editor’s Pick for “Best Albums of 2012”. Indeed, Diamond has cultivated a distinguishable sound with his own his writing, a crack ensemble, and his use of the electric guitar — an instrument not often associated with this genre.

Diamond and his group have been seen performing at numerous premier New York venues such as: The Blue Note, Iridium Jazz Club, Joe’s Pub, Smalls Jazz Club, Zinc Bar, and Nublu; not to mention numerous festival presentations, among them: The Madrid International Jazz Festival, Barranquijazz Festival, Jimmy Glass Jazz Festival, Teatro Libre Jazz Festival, Medejazz Festival, Jazz al Parque Festival, and the Nublu Jazz Festival. In 2007 he was a semi-finalist at The Gibson International Jazz Guitar Competition hosted by The Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, where he performed before jazz guitar legend George Benson.

Ghost Town Blues Band

Saturday, Sep 22, 2018 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM - English

Recently featured at Montreal Jazz Festival, Beale Street’s latest success story, #4 on the 2018 Billboard Blues Charts (wk 9), 2016 Independent Blues Award winner for “Best Contemporary Blues Song”, 2015 Blues Blast Music Award Nominee for “Best Blues Band” and 2014 International Blues Challenge Runner-up is Ghost Town Blues Band. Not your grandpa’s blues band, their live show has been captivating audiences in the U.S. and Canada with a second-line horn entrance, cigar box guitars and electric push brooms to Allman Brothers style jams and even a hip-hop trombone player.

Horns, harmonies and homegrown instruments combined with an energetic and roots rich festival set makes Ghost Town Blues Band one of the “must see live bands on the festival circuit today.” Both Preston McEwen behind the drums and Matt Karner on the bass guitar are a punishing rhythm section behind multi-instrumentalist/ frontman Matt Isbell with raunchy cigar box guitar licks and raspy “Dr. John-like, whiskey and gravel-soaked vocals.” With the addition of Trombonist Suavo Jones, Tim Stanek on B3 and Taylor Orr on lead guitar, the grooves go from funky to “funk-nasty” as the band gains more notoriety in the blues festival and jam circuit. Ghost Town Blues Band performed across North America at over 24 festivals in 2016 and already have 25 festivals and 12 international tours booked for 2017/2018.

Death Cab for Cutie

Monday, Oct 22, 2018 at 7:00 PM - English

Death Cab for Cutie's rise from small-time solo project to Grammy-nominated rock band is one of indie rock's greatest success stories. Launched in the bayside college town of Bellingham, Washington, the group was originally a side project for singer/guitarist Ben Gibbard, an engineering student at Western Washington University who split his time between school and music. Taking a break from his local power pop band, Pinwheel, Gibbard began recording an album's worth of solo material during the summer of 1997. Producer Chris Walla lent his help to the sessions, which resulted in an eight-song cassette entitled “You Can Play These Songs with Chords”. When the tape became a local hit, Gibbard reached into his circle of friends to form a band, hoping to play the new songs live. Bassist Nick Harmer and drummer Nathan Good climbed aboard, and Walla enlisted as the band's primary guitarist (he would also go on to produce most of the band's future releases). Gibbard's group rechristened itself Death Cab for Cutie (named after a song by the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band) and signed a contract with the Seattle-based Barsuk Records within a year's time.

Show more >>

The quartet made its studio debut with 1998's “Something About Airplanes”, an album that featured several re-recorded tracks from the Chords cassette as well as a dreamy, pop-oriented sound reminiscent of Built to Spill. Gibbard and Walla both continued to pursue their own projects, but that didn't keep Death Cab for Cutie from returning to the studio for a second album, “We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes”, which appeared in 2000. Nathan Good left the group just prior to the album's completion, and We Have the Facts introduced Michael Schorr as Death Cab's new drummer.

The polished, hook-laden “Transatlanticism” arrived in 2003 and announced the arrival of drummer Jason McGerr, who had previously played in a band with Nick Harmer. The album proved to be a very important step in the band's career, gathering positive attention from consumers and industry execs. With their popularity at an all-time high, the bandmates issued a live disc, “The John Byrd E.P.”, and later signed a worldwide major-label deal with Atlantic Records in November 2004.

“Plans” was released the following summer and debuted at number four, remaining on the Billboard charts for nearly one year and achieving platinum status on the strength of three singles (including the acoustic ballad "I Will Follow You into the Dark"). Death Cab for Cutie earned a Grammy nomination for their major-label debut. Death Cab returned in May 2008 with “Narrow Stairs”, a darker effort that debuted at the top of the Billboard 200.

In conversation, it’s obvious that the members of Death Cab for Cutie are still each other’s biggest fans. More important, they genuinely enjoy making music with each other and being in a band together. Their only motivation is to create music they like – and to impress and satisfy each other. Theirs might not be a controversial rock & roll story – but it is one rooted in stable, supportive brotherhood.

GFour Productions, winner of 44 Tony Awards and 54 Drama Desk Awards, proudly brings the international hit show Menopause The Musical®to the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center for a limited engagement .

Four women meet in a department store while shopping for black lace bras at a lingerie sale. After noticing unmistakable similarities to one another’s ‘situations’, the women compare comical (and eminently relatable) notes about their woeful hot flashes, mood swings, wrinkles, weight gain and much more.

Inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine, Menopause The Musical® is a celebration of women who find themselves at any stage of “The Change.” The laughter-filled 90-minute production consistently gets audience members out of their seats and singing along to parodies of classic pop songs of the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s.

Now celebrating 17 years of female empowerment - GFour’s first production of Menopause The Musical® was in South Florida in 2004 - Menopause The Musical® is a hilarious groundbreaking celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle of, or have survived “The Change.” The show has evolved as a "grassroots" movement for women who deal with life adjustments after 40 by embracing each other and the road ahead.

“We are very excited to bring Menopause The Musical® back to Florida - the place it all began!” says the one of the show’s producers, Kathi Glist. Glist is a founding partner in GFour Productions. “Menopause The Musical ® is very much thought of as a celebration of women,” she continues, “But we have consistently found that men love it just as much as the women do. We look forward to sharing the Menopause The Musical® experience' with South Florida audiences again.”

Menopause The Musical® is recognized as the longest-running scripted production in Las Vegas and continues to entertain nightly at Harrah’s Las Vegas. The show recently celebrated its 5000th performance there. The much-loved musical has entertained audiences across the country in more than 450 U.S. cities, nearly 300 international cities, and a total of 15 countries.

Tickets are $46.50 - $66.50.

John Scofield

Saturday, Mar 16, 2019 at 7:45 PM - English

"Scofield combines the chess-champ braininess of his solos with a taste for standard song forms and expansive bursts of volume; a manna for the straight-ahead jazz fan." - The Boston Phoenix

Kurt Elling Quintet

Saturday, May 18, 2019 at 7:45 PM - English

An Evening with Raul Midón & the Lionel Loueke Trio

Saturday, Jun 15, 2019 at 8:00 PM - English

Genre-bending icons Raul Midón and Lionel Loueke join forces to present a special night of incredible guitar and vocal wizardry. The acclaimed instrumentalists-singers will perform individual sets of original material in an evening that will culminate in an unforgettable jam backed by Loueke's dynamic Gilfema trio (bassist Massimo Biolcati and drummer Ferenc Nemeth).

Raul Midón is celebrated as one of music's most distinctive and searching voices. Heralded as a "one-man band who turns a guitar into an orchestra and his voice into a chorus," (NY Times), Midón has collaborated with Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder and even Snoop Dogg. Blind since birth, Midón produced-engineered his Grammy-nominated album, Bad Ass and Blind (Mack Avenue Records), that confronts the challenges of blindness and musical composition.

Lionel Loueke, in part due to his West African roots and world music experience, brings influences to jazz that color his unique phrasing as a guitarist and vocalist. A Herbie Hancock protégé for the past 10 years, Loueke has also recorded and toured with varied instrumentalists and vocalists from far and wide. Praised by Hancock as "a musical painter", Loueke combines harmonic complexity, soaring melody, a deep knowledge of African folk forms, and unconventional guitar techniques to create a warm and evocative personal sound.

The Forgotten Kingdom: Guy Mendilow Ensemble

Saturday, Nov 16, 2019 at 7:30 PM - English

The Forgotten Kingdom's intertwining music and storytelling conjure voices from Sephardic communities lost to war and upheaval. It's an evocative trek through former Ottoman lands during the turmoil of the 1920's and 30's, during the rise of fascism. Rendering stories and songs of an older age with drama, humor and heart, The Forgotten Kingdom finds highly resonant, deeply moving connections to contemporary struggles, debates, and dilemmas.

Show video >>
Show more >>

The Forgotten Kingdom tells of the ending of an age, one whose passing begins with the traumas of the Great War and the collapse of the Ottoman Empire and whose definitive ending is ushered in by WWII. With sand animation, the tale will be told through glimpses and impressions captured in a book of memories found by a daring refugee girl upon her return to her ruined village in 1944. She does not know whose sketches these are. But in the pages she sees her own story, and that of her family. The sketches capture day-to-day life, from the final decades of the 19th century, on through the onset of WWI and ultimately chronicling the disillusion, betrayal and heartache that turned neighbor upon neighbor and covered entire communities with a 'shroud of oblivion' as tens of thousands were deported to camps like Auschwitz.The book is not complete. The show poses a hopeful question: How do you pick up the pieces? The show ends with the girl's determination to continue the story. As she embarks on a new beginning, she adds her own sketches to the book. The Forgotten Kingdom springs from Sephardi women's songs from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. All music is in the endangered Ladino language, a combination of archaic Spanish with Turkish and Greek. The narration is in English. The show weaves its tale impressionistically, through a series of vignettes with recurring characters and themes. The addition of Kseniya Simonova's captivating, nuanced visual storytelling will enable the show to reverberate on deeper levels.
