Doors open at 6pm, THE JUANJAMON BAND brings their amazing "One Love Rising" BOB MARLEY Tribute show from 7-10pm.
We will also have food, fun, games, raffles, silent auctions and a big ol tip jar for the recovery fund.
The Juanjamon Band is a funky show band featuring music from one man's heart, mind, soul and influences from across the Universe. Being predominantly known as a saxophone player, Juan "Juanjamon" Montero started this group as an arena to play bass, feeling that an unspoken form of musical control can be a more effective way of improvising and experimenting live. Charming any crowd into a good time, The Juanjamon Band plays catchy Parliament and New Orleans based Funk while mixing in influences from Jimi Hendrix, Bootsy Collins, Bob & Damian Marley, Maceo Parker, Karl Denson and the late great Michael Brecker. Let's Dance!
Old Bahama Bay will be the Command Center for all donated hurricane relief supplies in West End, Grand Bahama and is working in cooperation with the Bahamas Government, Local Authorities and NEMA-Bahamas (National Emergency Management Agency). Old Bahama Bay is the largest employer in the western district of Grand Bahama Island.
The Bahamas Government has granted approval to bring in items with no VAT, DUTY or CUSTOMS/IMMIGRATION ENTRY FEES however, this is not a license to import goods to avoid VAT and duty for personal use needs. We have an obligation to provide Customs and Immigration with detailed notification and itemization of when and what's coming in.
FINANCIAL DONATIONS: Our goal is to raise One Million Dollars. "We exceeded our goal during Matthew which greatly helped rebuild the village of West End and we are hopeful we will exceed Hurricane Dorian's goal as well since we now must aid not just West End, but all of Grand Bahama and Abaco as well," said John MacDonald, HOA President, Old Bahama Bay Resort. "We are working in conjunction with Mike Schmidt's Winners Circle Foundation in this effort. Mike has held fundraising tournaments out of OBB for the last ten years."
