The Overtown Music Project was created to bring awareness to the area's historic luster, when dozens of nightclubs dotted the streets and hosted marquee acts like Count Basie and Dizzy Gillespie. Its purpose is to shine a light on the different genres of music that made Overtown “the Harlem of the South."
Overtown Music Project’s annual fundraiser will be at LIV inside the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach on Saturday, January 26, 2013 from 7-10pm, and will showcase a mash up of an 18-piece big band with hip hop. Several musicians who played in Overtown’s numerous venues during its heyday, now in their 60s – 90s, will be showcased. This is a great way to help fund their 6 annual events in Overtown and 3 programs geared towards bringing music back to the area permanently. Tickets and Tables can be purchased here:
GENERAL ADMISSION TICKETS include admission and two complimentary Grey Goose cocktails. $60 in advance; $75 at the door (cash or check only).
VIP TICKETS include a spot in the reserved VIP seating area with private bar, expedited check in, an additional complimentary Grey Goose cocktail and baked goods from Deliver Lean. $125 in advance; $150 at the door (cash or check only).
