Beach Jazz Fest

Cornell Gunter's Coasters ft. Edwin Cook 
& Lourdes Valentin

The 2017 Sunny Isles Beach Annual Jazz Fest will run Friday, November 17 through Sunday, November 19, 2017. The City of Sunny Isles Beach hosts the main event on Saturday, November 18, featuring The Spinners, Cornell Gunter's Coasters ft. Edwin Cook, and Lourdes Valentine at Gateway Park, 151 Sunny Isles Blvd, Sunny Isles, FL 33160. MAP

Most often thought of as a Motown recording act, the classic group sound of legendary R&B recording artists, The Spinners, has never lost its universal appeal. Throughout the years they have sold millions of records and topped both the Pop and R&B charts with smash hits like “I’ll Be Around” and “Then Came You.” Today, original member Henry Fambrough is joined onstage by lead singer Charlton Washington, high tenor Marvin Taylor, tenor Ronnie Moss, and bass singer Jessie Peck; a soul-infused 5-piece band, led by Keith Ferguson, backs them up. The Spinners have six Grammy nominations and have performed twice during the awards ceremony. Inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1999, they have also been awarded the Rhythm and Blues Foundation Award for their contribution to the genre. The group has performed for presidents, received a star on the Hollywood “Walk of Fame,” and has appeared in numerous network and cable television specials paying tribute to the music of the 70’s.

The second act features R&B/rock and roll vocal group, Cornell Gunter’s Coasters featuring Edwin Cook. Joining Cornell Gunter’s COASTERS in 1982, Edwin Cook has enjoyed performances all over the United States, Asia and Europe. The Coasters, the original group, were the first inductees into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and were known as The Clown Princes of Rock & Roll.

A performer well-known to locals, opening act, Lourdes Valentin, was born in the Bronx, New York to Puerto Rican parents. Her training in classical, jazz, pop and musical theater gives her a unique perspective which she brings to every performance. Her spirit shines through in her music.
