Saturday, October 17, 2020
Jon Secada
International Superstar & Multi-Grammy 
Award Winning Vocalist

With a career spanning over two decades, two Grammy Awards, 20 million albums sold, and starring roles on Broadway, the acclaimed, Jon Secada established himself as one of the first bilingual artists to have international crossover success. Adored by millions around the world, he is recognized as an international superstar by both fans and peers alike for his soulful and melodic voice. His hits include “Angel,” “I’m Free,” and “Do You Believe In Us” and “If You Go.” Beyond his own music, Secada is widely recognized for his impeccable producing and songwriting skills. One of his first major breaks came from collaborating with Gloria Estefan in the late 1980s, which led to him co-writing her #1 single, “Coming Out of the Dark.”  Since then, Secada has gone on to pen countless popular songs for superstars such as Jennifer Lopez and Ricky Martin.


JazzAid Live at the Banyan Bowl is an eight concert jazz series streamed live from the Pinecrest Gardens' Banyan Bowl Amphitheater. In an effort to both save the famed series this year and help feed families across the nation, the Village of Pinecrest will make this iconic jazz series available to anyone with internet access. 

A generous portion of the proceeds from JazzAid Live will go directly to World Central Kitchen founded by acclaimed international Chef José Andrés to help to feed families affected by the pandemic.

BackroomLive Miami Cats GOFUNDME Campaign

BackroomLive at The Fish House Miami is a venue where Live Music lives since 1996.  As a coincidence we opened the business on Elvis Presley’s birthday,  an omen for the amount of music we would present in the future. 

Since the March 17, 2020 #stayhome mandate, there are about 100 canceled gigs and musicians out of work from our line up.   As you might know by now,  we present Jazz Wednesday,  Blues Thursday and rotational musicians during the weekends. 

The donations will be distributed on your behalf to the artists that were scheduled to perform during this time.  If there is a surplus we will continue disbursements to any former artist who has performed in the past in BackroomLive like David Leon, Melinda Rose Rodriguez, Aurora Natrix, Joey Gilmore to mention a few.

Some of our regular Jazz Cats who will benefit are Marc Berner, Peter Betan, Federico Britos, Ahmed Barroso, Brev Sullivan and Blues musicians like Darrell Raines, George Caldwell,  Janey Wish, Motel Mel also who kept weekly gigs doing the Blues Jam on Thursday’s at BackroomLive.

Thank you for your donation and supporting our local artists. 

Angela Rivero, BackroomLive Manager
