Schedule of Upcoming Performances:

May 23rd 2024 - Paul Anthony & The Reggae Souljahs

Paul Anthony has been writing and recording original music since age 12. He recently collaborated with Emilio Estefan and the new generation of Bob Marley’s band The Wailers on their Album “One World” which received a Grammy Nomination in 2020. Paul Anthony & The Reggae Souljahs seek to uplift, inspire, and empower people with their music.

Paul's father is Pat Satchmo, the award winning "Champion Reggae Vocalist" from Jamaica who recorded with Sly & Robbie and Lee "Scratch" Perry in the 60s/70s and toured with Bob Marley & The Wailers in Canada (1975). Satchmo continues to release music, and occasionally lends his vocal/percussion skills to the Reggae Souljahs! With such a deeply rooted history, Paul Anthony & The Reggae Souljahs consistently captures the true essence of Reggae music!

June 27th 2024 - Karina Iglesias

Born and raised in Miami, Florida to Honduran parents, Karina Iglesias’ sound mirrors the diverse musical and cultural influences that have shaped her character and forged her individuality as an artist. With a style equally informed by rhythm & blues, boleros, gospel and hip-hop Karina delivers her performances with the intimacy of a deep soul crooner and the conviction and drive of a dauntless female singer/songwriter.

​ A veteran of the Miami live music scene, Karina began writing songs in earnest during the time she started working extensively with local bands. It soon became apparent that through composing original material, her true artistic identity had emerged. Her emotionally charged and deeply personal lyrics now revealed a depth of character and vulnerability that can only be conveyed when a singer truly connects with their song. On “Song For Her”, from her forthcoming album, Karina’s classically-trained voice unveils the nuances of her lyrics and adds layers of meaning and emotion that are more commonly found in operatic vocal performances.

​ In 2009, Karina was chosen to be one out of an eight-person choir/ensemble hired by the Miami Dolphins (Dolphins Voices) through Emilio Estefan to sing the anthem at all home games. In 2011, Karina sang a duet with Sony Latin Recording Artist, Franco de Vita, who has sold over 20 million albums worldwide. She was featured in his live DVD album, Primera Fila, which won 2 Latin Grammy Awards this past November. She has also performed with Wyclef Jean at the Zumba Instructor’s Convention in Orlando in July of 2011. Karina has also been featured on Univision’s Mira Quien Baila, and has shared the stage with Latin artists like Beatriz Luengo, Alejandra Guzmán and Gilberto Santa Rosa to name a few. ​

In 2013, Karina was a contestant on NBC's #1 Hit TV Show, The Voice. She made it to the Top 16 on the live show. She was originally on Adam Levine's team but was later stolen by Shakira after her epic performance of "Its a man's, man's, man's world" which turned into a YouTube sensation. ​

With her highly-focused artistic vision, rich cultural background and proclivity for harnessing a wide range of production techniques, Karina Iglesias brings forth a strong element of innovation and heralds a much-needed return to the authenticity of pure soul music.
