“Lahou Lakay” Off the Beaten Path lecture with Troy Bernier 10:00am - 6:00pm | Bailey Contemporary Arts, 41 NE 1st Street

The Bailey Contemporary Arts, the Historic Ali Cultural Arts and MUCE (the Miami Urban Contemporary Experience) is partnering for Haitian Heritage Month, this May, 2017 to present visual and performance art in the City of Pompano Beach, “Lakou Lakay: In my backyard” Featuring Haitian Artists: Alix Gauchier & Zeek Mathias, and a live celebration performance by Rara Lakay. The visual exhibit will feature the works of two very talented contrasting artists, Alix Gauchier and Seek Mathias, who are looking at the importance of the tambour and musical culture in Haiti heritage, past and present.

Alix Joseph Gauchier, recent second place winner of "The Art Of Black”, (sponsored by the GMCVB), is a native of Haiti who believes that "art is a reflection of visible and invisible things around us". For him, the Tambour is a very powerful and ethereal instrument that can put us in another spiritual dimension”, and thus is the focus of his creations.

Son of a preacher, Zeek Mathias believes that the "Tambour is a portal". Mr. Mathias is making a name for himself throughout the Caribbean, as well as Stateside. Born in Haiti and raised in Miami's "Little Haiti”, Zeek produces work in light and shadows that explores the "intersection of three themes: legacy, transmission and articulation.

"Rara Lackay” performance artists are known for their electrifying street festival precession which serves as a communal celebration, and will highlight this months long celebration with a live performance at the Historic Ali Cultural Arts.

Also, celebrating Haitian Heritage Month, both venues will be hosting additional complementary lectures and programs.

George Thorogood & The Destroyers 8:00pm | The Amp (Pompano Beach Amphitheater), 1806 NE 6th St

The band has amassed a catalog of hits that includes “Who Do You Love,” “I Drink Alone,” “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer,” “Move It On Over,” “Get A Haircut,” and the anthemic, “Bad To The Bone.”

With more than 40 years of touring and recording, 15 million albums sold, and 8,000 live shows, George and his longtime band – Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) – remain among the most relentless and relevant classic rock acts on tour today.

The “Rock Party Tour” promises to raise the bar, rock the house and tear off the roof like never before. “We play for a different audience every night, and that keeps it fresh,” said Thorogood. “There are people who’ve never seen us before, and we have to impress them. There are fans that keep coming back, and we want to surprise them. This is my job. I’ve always loved it, and I love it now more than ever.”

From coast to coast, the critics agree: “I’m happy to say, after all these years, that George is still ‘Bad To The Bone’ and he’s never let go of the true spirit of rock ’n roll!" says the L.A. Daily News; “Thorogood is a guitar-blazing revivalist whose enthusiasm and showmanship make the music fresh,” says the Baltimore Sun; “He’s got charisma and personality to burn, a fact that becomes evident the moment he walks on stage,” says the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The group is also putting their talents to work by helping The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to help find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. The band will be donating $1 from each ticket sale of their “Rock Party Tour” to LLS.

Free parking available in City owned lots surrounding the facility, including limited Lawn Parking on the North side of the Venue. Paid parking also available at Pompano Beach High School ($10).
