The Wildfire Band

Sunday, May 27, 2018 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM - English

The Wildfire Band is the loving “refiring” of the beloved BlueFire Band. The BlueFire Band, with core members Randi Fishenfeld, Richard Velasquez, Nick Cucunato, and Michael Waxman (joined 2007) had been performing and wowing audiences throughout South Florida for 18 years. Jeffrey Lafferty, drummer, joined the band as a permanent member in 2013. BlueFire garnered a huge loyal and adoring fan base due to the amazing chemistry and musicianship of its members. The band was built on love and respect.

As the saying goes, “Nothing lasts forever.” Lives change – circumstances change. Nick reached a time in his life where he felt he wanted to retire and Rich accepted a wonderful job-offer in Boston. We accept these changes with open hearts and wish everyone (including those of us remaining) success. There are no bad feelings, only love.

HENCE, the “refiring”! Jeffrey, Michael and Randi have decided to run with the opportunity to create a new and exciting project called THE WILDFIRE BAND. We added two amazing musicians: Stevan Carter (guitar/vocals), and John Falcone (bass/vocals). These beautiful musicians were selected because of their passion and talent. We fit like a glove!

Eddie Turner & Trouble

Saturday, Jul 21, 2018 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM - English

Eddie Turner has done just about everything. A guitarist since age 12, he honed his skills alongside San Francisco’s legendary Tracy Nelson & Mother Earth in the ’70s and Denver’s hard-hitting Zephyr in the ’80s, before becoming a founding member of the Otis Taylor Band in the ’90s and then earning a prestigious Blues Music Award nomination for his own solo career in the mid-2000s.

The Denver-based guitarist, singer and bandleader has toured the world, garnering countless fans and an outpouring of critical acclaim in the process.

Fitting for a man who grew up outside of Chicago watching iconic blues figures such as Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf ply their trade — but also seeing acts like Jimi Hendrix and Cream take the music to new, more rock-influenced directions — Turner has developed a sound that’s informed by tradition yet adventurous enough to not be limited by it. As the man himself puts it, “If you want to be a purist, be one not because you started there and stopped there. Be one because you went everywhere else and decided to come back. Because no music is truly pure. Everything has a little dirt in it.”

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!
