PRESS: Miami Herald’s Tania Valdemoro Covers 35th Annual Miami Beach Festival of Arts featuring DJ Maximus 3000

Lots of music and art at North Beach festival

The spotlight will be on North Beach next month when a popular festival comes to Ocean Terrace.


Live music, bungee jumping and face painting. That’s just some of the activities on tap at the 35th Annual Coldwell Banker Miami Beach Festival of the Arts.

The North Beach event takes place on Feb. 7 and 8 at Ocean Terrace, a sliver of land facing the beach between 73rd and 75th streets. It is organized by the city of Miami Beach and the city’s Fine Arts Board.

Between 30,000 to 40,000 people are expected to attend the free event, said Max Sklar, director of Miami Beach’s tourism and cultural development department.

Daniel Veitia, a North Beach activist, said he was excited because the festival gives South Beach residents a chance to appreciate what’s in his neighborhood.

”It’s a staple event where other residents come to North Beach,” he said. “For many of them, it’s the only time they come up here.”

New this year: daytime musical concerts at the North Beach Bandshell, 7275 Collins Ave.

Veitia said the music is a product of a partnership between the city and the North Beach Bandshell Trust.

Five local artists will perform.

The lineup for Feb. 7 includes Maximus 3000, a Miami-based disc jockey, remixer and experimental artist; Suénalo, a band that blends Afro-Cuban, Latin, R&B, rock and hip-hop rhythms; and Very Normal People, a pop band that performs songs from the 1980s and ’90s, as well as recent hits.

On Feb. 8, there will be performances by Maximus 3000, Conjunto Progreso, a Cuban music group; and the Spam Allstars, a band whose music features Latin, funk, hip-hop, turntables and electronic elements.

The festival also showcases the work of 150 artists who will display their paintings, sculptures, photos, ceramics, glass and jewelry along Ocean Terrace.

Children will be able to play in fun houses, create arts and crafts, go rock climbing and bungee jumping in a zone set up for youngsters.

”We try to provide a variety of different forms of entertainment to attract people and keep them coming back,” Sklar said.

Fort Lauderdale, FL
At 8:00 pm Sunday, January 4, 2009, at the Living Room Nite Club in Fort Lauderdale, the ideas of gender are out the door. Drag It Out, a professional and amateur (PRO-AM) Drag Night of delight, is a fundraiser raising awareness to benefit the KIDS, the QUEERS and the ANIMALS! All donations ($10 per person) will go to four local charities in need; Safe Schools South Florida, Yes Institute, Animal Aid, and the GLCC’s Lavender Events for Women. With over ten performers acting out gender impersonations, this event will spread awareness through entertainment, and connect night life with contribution. The creator, Tabatha Mudra, a self-employed photographer, created the project while participating in a Landmark Education leadership program, an international training and development company, who is known for offering their flagship course The Landmark Forum ( where part of the coursework, was to create a project that benefits the community, hence the result is Drag It Out; a fully self expressed and fun experience where the lines of what gender is suppose to be versus what one makes it are explored.
“Gender-bending is a controversial/stigmatic form of self-expression as performance art. To have participants at all levels of experience, of all ethnicities, and sexual orientation has been a real treat. Classes were formed like a training camp where a professional impersonator coached amateurs in character building, physical adjustments, facial make-up and performance. Watching the growth and transformation of each individual during the classes has been one of the biggest gifts, even more so since all of the participants are volunteers, making this happen for the greater good of all concerned!”
Sponsors include a number of kid, queer, and animal friendly supporters. Please see back of flyer for details. For more information, call (954) 612-4489 or email
