WINGS FOR LIFE WORLD RUN

By Stella Alves

I

n a mission to find a cure for spinal cord injuries, Anita Gerhardter created Wings for Life, a marathon famous for a distinct feature: Catcher Cars that follow the runners throughout the race. They increase their speed at given intervals to ensure that all runners are eventually caught. Last runner wins.

Wanna know something else? All the runners from around the world will be running at the same time, on the same day, while the Catcher Cars – equipped with sensors – track the runners to make sure that they all are ranked fairly. Up for the worldwide challenge on May 7th? You’re in luck. This race is being held in Sunrise at the BB&T Center, about an hour from Miami. Race starts at 7 am, followed by the release of the Catcher Cars at 7:30 am. Hydration stations will be available every 2 miles and medical aid stations every 5-7 miles. For safety reasons, no headphones/ earphones are allowed, nor are children or strollers permitted in the race. Register between March 1st to the 31st for only $50 dollars before fees go up, but either way, 100% of the proceeds goes to Spinal Cord Research, so you can wait if you want to pay the full $60 to help support the cause.

REGGAE FEST

S

outh Florida has always been a hotbed for reggae music. Perhaps it is because it is as close to Jamaica as the United States can be or maybe it’s because it is where the king of reggae, Bob Marley passed away? Whatever the reason, Lake Worth Reggae Fest held this year from April 21-23 is a celebration that exemplifies our region’s love and passion for all things reggae. The three days and nights at Bryant Park will be a party for reggae lovers of all ages. Friday, April 21, will kick off the 19th year of the Festival with Bob Marley’s old running mates The Original Wailers and will be headlined by Maxi Priest, who topped the charts back in 1990 with “Close to You.” Saturday features the Supervillains, Passafire, Tenelle, and headlined by Long Beach Dub Allstars. Local acts will also be represented by Jupiter’s own Moska Project and Karlos Marz Band. The event will be closed out Sunday with Collie Buddz, KBong, and The Holdup. Advance single day general admission tickets cost $15 with a 3-day pass costing $40.  VIP passes, which includes two hours of open bar from 5-7pm, go for $65 for one day and $150 for the weekend.

ERIC BIDDINES NOBODY RAPS ABOUT

COFFEE AND

PALM BEACH LIKE

@ATLANTICCU R R E NT


DELRAY RAPPER DROPS NEW ALBUM, THE LOCAL CAFÉ BY DAVID ROLLAND hen I say I’m from Palm Beach, it’s like a blank image for a lot of people,” Rapper Eric Biddines said about his hometown. “I usually have to tell people it’s an hour North of Miami. That opened my eyes how unmarked the area I’m from is to other people.” Inspired by hip-hop acts like Outkast, Jay Z, and N.W.A. who were able to take listeners on a tour of their home turf, Biddines wanted to do the same for West Palm on his new record The Local Cafe. From the opening track with samples of a newscaster speaking about the vast number of children living in poverty in Florida, Biddines takes you on a tour of where he’s from. Not that it’s all heavy, the album touches on his twin passions for fantasy and coffee as well. “Coffee is something I got into when I was young,” said the man who named a previous album Planetcoffeebean and his first mixtape, DaCoffeeShop. “As I got older it became an addiction. I appreciated it and learned about different aromas and varieties of coffee beans. If you’re with me, you better enjoy a cup of coffee or at least tea.” So while he’ll eventually take an out of towner to the beach, Biddines says his favorite local landmarks are coffee shops, name checking Delray Beach’s former Spot Coffee and Lake Worth’s Common Grounds as particular favorites. Biddines grew up in Delray Beach as a quiet kid. “I didn’t talk. I was very shy and dyslexic. My tongue had me mumbling- I had a lisp and I was country so that made my speech even worse.” It made a young Biddines introverted, though he said he appreciated the time spent alone. At age 13, he began messing around with music. He quickly found rapping and recording his lyrics worked as an exercise to help him speak better. “Some words I still can’t get off my tongue, so I have to write my words around that. Two words that start with T will trip me off like ‘The Thing’ or two words that start with S in a row.” >>

Despite those verbal limitations, Biddines has been able to find a wide audience. A few years back his video for “Railroads Down/Unfinished” found itself on heavy rotation on MTV. His new album released in January hopes to expand that success. “I started working on it six months ago though some of the songs I wrote years ago. I recorded everything in my closet in West Palm using my 2008 Mac book and a $100 microphone.” With plans in 2017 to play South by Southwest in Austin, Texas as well as being in negotiations to jump on someone else’s national tour, Biddines is hopeful he can promote all over the country what his experience of being from Palm Beach is all about. Though he also wants to make sure he can play some shows for his local fans. “I’ll probably be playing at Propaganda. That was a home for me like my backyard. When I came up and I first had 150 people show up it felt like a stadium. I made $2,000 that night and I felt like I was rich.” There are also schemes afoot to have a proper record release party. He didn’t have a definite time or date when it would be set, but he had a good idea where it would be held: at one of his favorite local coffee shops. w @ericbiddiness

BRINGING FUNKY IMPROVISATION TO THEIR LIVE SHOWS BY DAVID ROLLAND

ike the genre of music they play in Jamtronica, the West Palm Beach five piece, Guavatron got their name from merging two things they love, guitarist Adonis Frangiskakis said. “We had a silly name before Guavatron. I don’t even want to tell anyone what it was. We were in the parking lot outside our studio one night thinking up new names. We wanted ‘tron’ in it because we play jamtronica. Someone suggested ‘Mangotron’. We were on our band’s Facebook page about to change the name when we decided Guavatron sounded better.” That was the kind of spontaneity the five friends, who have mostly known each other since their high school days, have tried to take with them on to the stage. Made up of Roddy Hansen on keyboards, Casey Luden and Adonis playing guitar, Nate Largent on drums, and Conor Crookham on bass, the quintet’s musical roots go back to their school days at Palm Spring’s G-Star School of the Arts. “It was a film school where we made short films and also did academics. Some of us played music together. We did the reggae thing back then.” Adonis

21

@ATLANTICCU R R E NT

remembered. After graduation, they all went their separate ways. Adonis headed out to Colorado for a while, but he never really found his footing in the Rockies. “There was a huge music scene, but I found it hard to find people to jam with. Back home, everyone in the music scene had a connection.” When he moved back to West Palm, a shared musical connection brought together the seeds of Guavatron in 2013. They set out to be a fusion of all the genres the five members enjoyed with an emphasis on jam bands and live electronica, which when you smash the two together becomes their preferred descriptor of funktronica. They named national bands like Disco Biscuits, Umphrey’s McGee, Phish, and The Grateful Dead as huge influences that they could bond over. Their taste, their feel, makes them stand out from many local acts. “The music scene here, especially the jam band scene, isn’t as oversaturated as Colorado. It’s pretty much just us and The Heavy Pets.”

TH EATLANTICCU R R E NT.COM

Even though Guavatron’s members are all in their mid-twenties, they say there is a movement among a younger crop of jamtronica artists they are rebelling against. “A lot of the jam band scene is turning into an electronic DJ thing.” Instead, the members of Guavatron are trying to bring a more analog method of music making. On their debut self-titled EP that came out late last year, they aimed to have the music come out organically. “We had songs we wrote together like ‘Hot Sauce’. ‘Then I Would’ I wrote four or five years before the band even started, but then the other guys do their thing to it.” Their songwriting on Guavatron and the as yet to be named LP they plan to record later this year starts with one member bringing an inkling of a song, then another member might add to it a song he was busy working on. They make sure to leave space in each song for the

22

@ATLANTICCU R R E NT

improvisation they groove into during their live shows, which you can catch all over South Florida. Specifically at Guanabana’s, The Funky Buddha Lounge, or Propaganda. While they’re hopeful to soon make music their day and night job, the members of Guavatron have interesting ways to pay the bills. One member sells guns, and another works at a window tinting company. Adonis meanwhile works at his Dad’s junkyard. “It’s a cool job,” he said, “I’ve found old guitars, old cases – Maybe one day I’ll create a guitar out of junk I find. I used to have a guitar laying around at work I’d play with another guy and we came up with The Junkyard Blues.” While he hasn’t yet shared that riff with the rest of Guavatron, with their improvisational ways, you never know when it might come out. w @guavatron

JM &THE SWEETS SOUL MAN JOSH MILES FINISHES FIRST ALBUM BY DAVID ROLLAND

t has been two years in the making, but JM & The Sweets are finally putting the final mix on their debut EP. “It took the whole time we’ve been together to get these songs done,” their frontman Josh Miles said. Over a long conversation, Miles expressed confidence it would be well worth the wait. “This is not like anything that has come out of South Florida in quite a while.” Miles was born in Dallas. When he was ten years old his family made the trek to Boca Raton, a move that shaped him musically. “People think everything in Florida is Disney, but there’s authenticity here. I grew up with a varied musical pallet.” He gave all the credit in the world to the public school education he received. “I was always in school choirs. It’s where I learned how to make my voice my primary instrument.”

@ATLANTICCU R R E NT

Miles received a scholarship to study vocal performance at The University of Mobile. At the Alabama school, he studied in classrooms from Monday to Thursday and on the weekends for eleven months out of the year he toured around the Southeast with Voices of Mobile. After spending some time auditioning for singing roles on Broadway and at theme parks, the now 23-year-old moved back to South Florida. After listening to the soul musician D’Angelo, Miles decided to change what path he was driving down. “D’Angelo’s record Voodoo was my single biggest influence. It inspired me not to do musical theater anymore and instead try to pick up a guitar and write original songs.”


“It became a silly love song with the story of an astronaut looking for love in outer space and finding it.”

After gigging around town and playing any open mic night that would have him, Miles began recruiting for his band. With Michael Perry on guitar, Jason Stander on drums, and Lorenzo Lindo on bass, the guys were able to bond over some of their favorite soul icons like James Brown and Otis Redding and also musical acts that aren’t classified as soul, like the jam band Snarky Puppy. All those influences, Miles hopes, will be evident to those that listen to the upcoming EP Sol Village. The title was a homage to where his parents are from, Haiti. While all of the EP’s songs can be heard when they play live, two of the singles have already been released online. The first, “Save a Little Time” featured Chip Gardner on keyboard and was a funky plea to spend more time with someone special. The second single came out at the end of last summer and has a slightly more outrageous theme. Its title is “Cosmic Apple Jam,” which Miles said started out as a joke. “I was sitting with a friend. We always had our guitars out when we talked. We were talking about doing

26

@ATLANTICCU R R E NT

a song called ‘Banana Jam’. Then it became ‘Cosmic Apple Jam’. I tried to imagine what a song with that title would be about. It became a silly love song with the story of an astronaut looking for love in outer space and finding it.” Miles said the song quickly became a crowd favorite whether they played The Funky Biscuit, Guanabana’s, or The Funky Buddha. While Miles is now working as a barback to pay the bills, he’s also spending time establishing a production company, Stank, to promote concerts featuring live bands. His main passion though is working toward the day when JM & The Sweets can be his full time career. “We want to bring our brand of soul to everyone all over the country,” he said confidently before adding with gusto. “We want to take it all over the world.” w @joshmiles_is facebook.com/joshmilesmusik

A

lright, my little festival-goers, it’s finally time to break out your Coachella-like outfit and pluck that daisy flower you’ve been growing all year. SunFest is here, so let’s get weird. Even if you’re new to the music scene or are a veteran of West Palm Beach’s downtown action, there’s always something to know so you are on the up-and-up of happenings and are prepared for an epic experience.

GENERAL INFO: SunFest is held May 3-7, 2017 in downtown West Palm Beach along the Intracoastal Waterway. The festival grounds are on Flagler Drive at 100 Clematis St. Parking is a total B so either plan to get there early so you can find a spot in a parking garage close by, or bring your rollerblades and road Cokes because you’ll be trekking to the site. If you’re fancy enough to know someone with a boat, you can anchor in the Intracoastal Waterway in front of the SunFest site and take the water taxi to the waterfront gate for $5. Winning.

MUST-HAVE MUSIC: Prepare yourself for the ultimate symphonic endeavor with Blink-182, Weezer, Marshmello, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Widespread Panic, Snoop Dogg, Flo Rida, Fetty Wap, Ben Harper, Ziggy Marley and more. This is the best cultural and musical mashup of the year and an absolute must see for the season. When in doubt, shout it out, and sing along with every song. MONEY: If you want to get the most holla for your dolla, bundle your days. If purchased in advance, a 5-day pass is only $75, which saves you a ton of green when you compare that to the $55 two-day pass or the $35 single day pass. Ticket prices increase starting March 11 so don’t be a square and forget. This saved money will come in handy at the tiki bar.

30

@ATLANTICCU R R E NT

The Festival is open from 5 to 10 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 5 to 11 p.m. Friday, 12 to 11 p.m. Saturday and 12 to 9 p.m. Sunday. Don’t skip out early on Sunday because the fireworks show begins at 9 p.m. and, honestly, who doesn’t love a good fireworks show. Especially with all of your musical happiness pumping through your body, this is the best time to make bad decisions with the person closest to you. You are able to use major debit/credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) at all gates, barges, and beer and rum locations. There are ATM machines available but plan to bring cash with you so you avoid Nile-long lines and the $3.95 transaction fee.

MAP: There’s three stages, Captain Morgan’s Floating Oasis, Tiki Bar, beer and food vendors dotted along the entire stretch of the festival so everything is pretty much at your fingertips. Fun fact: you will only find a full bar on the barges, so if your girlfriend must have that skinny margarita, you’ll need to hit up the Floating Oasis.  Plan your location based on your can’tmiss bands because there’s a bit of walking distance in between the stages. There’s also, conveniently enough, bathrooms located practically next to each beer cart, but timing will play an important part in this, too, as you’ll be in line with hundreds of your closest festival friends.

FOOD: There’s no doubt you’re going to need some food to nosh on in between bands. For that, you have The Eatery, which is a one-stop-shop for all your munchie needs. You’ll be able to order up Nashville Hot Chicken, Veggie Rice Bowls, gluten-free options, and a “SundayFunday” brunch Hash-Brown Waffle, as well as the tried-and-true dishes like the Tropical Pineapple Chicken and Island Noodles. Eat, drink, dance, repeat. WHAT TO BRING: The legal essentials include sealed water bottles, sunscreen, lawn chairs, blankets, umbrellas (SunFest is rain or shine), camera (aka your phone) and possibly a charger, and any food you need for medical conditions. Use your better judgment when it comes to other items (cough, cough). Coolers, large bags, glass bottles, pets, professional cameras and drones, among other items, will be confiscated. PRE- AND POST-PARTYING: Let’s face it, sometimes the best part of music festivals is the pre- and post-game action. If you want to get the festivities rolling prior to entering the pearly SunFest gates or aren’t quite ready to go home after, you’re in luck because Clematis Street is waiting for you. West of the tracks has you covered with everything from Hullabaloo to O’Sheas Irish Pub and even Subculture Coffee if you’re in need of a pick-me-up. That stroll will give you tons of options to see what looks good. If you’re looking for a quick bite, Pizza Girls is a good bet if the line isn’t around the building. If it’s slammed, Jimmychangas off Banyan is the spot. Now you’re ready to party on… or go home, you drunk hippie.

STAY TO PLAY: If you are going to go hard in the paint, Hyatt Place has you covered. It’s the closest hotel to all the action and offers one- and two-night packages for two people that include tickets, free parking, breakfast, and a shuttle to and from SunFest for right around $300 per night. It’s roughly $200 for the room and perks, but no tickets, so pick your pleasure (prices may change as the event gets closer). Also check out the Marriott by I-95. Not as close, but it too has a shuttle. IF YOU’RE FEELING FRISKY: If running sounds like a good time for you, then lace the sneakers because the TGI5K is Palm Beach County’s only 5K that includes access to SunFest after the race. The race is held Friday at 5:30 p.m. and registration is $49, which gets you admission to SunFest that night, beer and beads at the finish line. Just an option if you’re into sweating. Have fun, be safe, and get your phone out of your face so you can enjoy the music. SunFest or bust: it’s what we’re here for. w

TWO SHOTS AND TWO BEERS WITH BRIAN TREW OF UPROOT HOOTENANNY BY SAVANNAH SHEEHAN

I

arrived at the Irishmen — a Boca staple bar that I had never before visited. It was fifteen past 5 when I approached the doors. Feeling a slight tinge of nervousness, I fanned my hands to ward away any clamminess. The sun was just now setting as I opened the bar door, I entered the black abyss, feeling a bit like being in a mole hole, until the door shut behind me and then I was able to adjust to the warmly lit, rustic, pub setting. Cautiously, I walked to the bar, scanning the room for my editor, Dustin Wright. Turning the corner, Dustin’s familiar face relieves my awkward at sea disposition. I nestle into a booth and anticipated the guest of honor, Brian Trew- Fiddler and singer of the South Florida born band, Uproot Hootenanny.

36

@ATLANTICCU R R E NT

Having been told Uproot’s members bear livers of steel and an affinity for alcohol, a typical interview didn’t seem like an appropriate approach to get to know the real Brian Trew. He approached the table sporting a Sticky Bun hat — a locally renowned breakfast and lunch restaurant, an apparent denotation of his communal support. These two have known each other for years, so I observed their natural interaction as they caught up briefly. Brian greeted the bartender, a friend of his, of course. With no hesitation he ordered himself a Guinness, a quintessential beer at an Irish pub. Dustin followed suit and I ordered a Yuengling. After a few sips of liquid courage, I began to relax and let go of what pseudo formality I felt compelled to uphold. Parallel to me, Brian seemed to

have felt similarly as the conversation adopted a natural fluidity. As we were jabbering, Brian made mention to the location of our booth which used to be the Irishmen’s stage. Was it ironic or absolutely apropos? I thought the latter considering the initiation of Brian’s involvement with the band had happened in the very same bar. The conversation trailed sporadically as we touched upon the Presidential Inauguration juxtaposed to our whiskey preference, then to Brian’s daily gig of teaching children music, once again changing topics to the acquisition of their band van through crowdfunding and then how Trew landed himself as a cartoon on his very own brew named ‘Fiddler on the roof’. A half a beer down, we housed our first shot — Jameson, the bands’ favorite whiskey. He maintained an almost bashful countenance; however, in the same direction, his demeanor spoke confidence and ease; a very relatable person to say the least. Brian set the scene of his inaugural day with Uproot. He had sustained injuries from a Rugby match (He is currently the President of the Boca Rugby team) that rendered him with his jaw wired shut. As he continued, without the slightest

denotation that these events would be considered out of the ordinary, I was growing more in awe at how wild this guy really was, and possibly still is. I could hardly imagine hanging out with the entire group. Fun would simply not fit the bill as a descriptor for the event. So on this night, Brian shows up to the Irishmen equipped with wire cutters around his neck in case he tossed back a few too many, and well, had to throw up. His timing was oddly opportune. The band’s fiddler had left the set early that evening. Trew walked up and spoke through forcefully clenched teeth disclaiming,

It was nearing 6 o’clock as we welcomed our second shot of Jameson….the energy level at the table increasing with every fluid ounce. Trew indulged me in his background with the violin. Further convincing me of his locality, he shared his experience of studying music with the violin at Florida Atlantic University. His classical roots were challenged positively when he joined forces with what is now Uproot Hootenanny. They taught him how to jam, which has brought them local acclaim as well as international. The stories of the bands escapades in America are captivating, but the band members taking on Ireland with beer in their bellies, instruments on their backs, and a fortitude for music, seems to me, a tale for a different time. In only a short hour and a half, I felt inspired, tipsy, and excited to see this band that Trew dubs, “AmeriCeltic Pub Grass.” w @uproothootenanny uproothootenanny.com

VINYL RECORDS TAKE CENTER STAGE AT LAKE WORTH’S

TOP 5 RECORDS

I

n our world full of digital music and various streaming services, it’s rare to find a place like Top 5 Records. It didn’t open to hop on a trend. It opened for the love of vinyl. That, and the owner’s collection was getting pretty thick — approximately 50,000 records. Top 5 Records opened in 2009, and after a brief chat with the owner it’s clear that the business, along with this article, is all about the store and what’s inside. At Top 5, the condition of the vinyl records is everything. Twice as many records go to charity than go out on the shelves. If there’s anything wrong with it, it doesn’t get put out. What makes the collection even more amazing is the fact that every record comes in through the front door. Nothing is bought online. Also, if you’re looking to reduce the size of your vinyl collection, or just make a few bucks, Top 5 claims to pay more fair prices than anyone around.

40

@ATLANTICCU R R E NT

In the shop you’ll find a variety of genres. Rock & roll, jazz, blues, country and sound tracks are all there. All vintage and all originals. What does the owner get out of the experience? Seeing the looks on customers faces when they find just the record they were looking for. One of the bigger things happening at this shop is the preservation of music history. Listening to a record is an experience. It’s something you would typically sit down and take in, start to finish. It’s not something you can just buy a portion of and add to a playlist. It’s a complete piece of work. Add that to the album cover and liner notes and you have something that’s all too missed these days. To fully appreciate this local gem that embodies vinyl records, you have to visit for yourself. w Visit Top 5 Records at 10 South J Street, Lake Worth

WRIGHT ON TRACK CATCHING UP WITH ZION WRIGHT BY SEAN GORGON

A

t just 17 years old, Zion Wright has become one of the biggest names in the South Florida skateboarding scene. After garnering attention from the popular video series “Florida Daze,” Zion made a life altering decision to take his talent to the sport’s biggest stage: Los Angeles. Young and hungry to pursue his dream of becoming a professional skateboarder, Wright picked up and moved to California. It was quite the adjustment for a kid from Jupiter, FL to make the jump from small town scene to the >>

skateboarding mecca of LA. “I was only 15 when I moved so I had to either have my parents help me out or make my own money skating, so I’m pretty stoked I can help myself out now” Zion said. A few years later, Zion’s big move has paid off. He recently became a member of the skate team for action sports giant, Red Bull, and has become the focal point of their new video series; “Let’s Get it Wright.” The threeepisode mini series begins with Zion coming back to his hometown where he spends time with his family and revisits the skate park where he first honed his skills. From Jupiter, the Red Bull crew follows him to Tampa where he competes in the prestigious Tampa Am. Wright has competed in Tampa three times in his career, but this year was especially memorable. Wright made his first podium appearance finishing in 3rd place. A competition such as the Tampa Am attracts

“So there’s a lot of weight with the contest. It’ll slowly come - I just got to skate hard and have fun with it”

the best young talent from around the world to compete for the top spot. “Tampa Am is crazy, it’s the largest amateur competition in the world, so obviously it’s sick to skate against the best. It’s just crazy, I watched it as a little kid and pretty much whoever won it went pro and established a career. So there’s a lot of weight with the contest. It’ll slowly come - I just got to skate hard and have fun with it” Zion said. The series concludes with Zion in his new home in Los Angeles where he and Red Bull teammate, Jamie Foy, battle traffic and dodge security to get footage at some local skate spots. When he’s not competing in the Damn Am or Park Series Events, Zion takes to the streets to compile video clips to fill up the various video projects. When asked about what he’s been working on, Zion said “I’m just focused on putting out some good stuff for the new year”. Zion has a

few big features to be on the lookout for in 2017. Real Skateboards video series “Surveillance” will be doing a segment focused entirely on Wright and fellow Real team skater, Jack Olsen. In addition to “Surveillance”, Zion will have a major part in Shake Junt’s next big project, “Flavor Country”. Looking to build off a great 2016, Zion plans to stay active in the amateur competition circuit and continue to stockpile footage for his upcoming video parts in 2017. Despite the increased demands of his schedule, Zion hasn’t lost the thing that’s gotten him this far: his passion. Skateboarding is still fun to him and he’s rarely seen without a smile on his face. Zion is well on his way to achieving his dream of becoming a professional skateboarder and his plan of attack is simple. Keep skating, have fun, and film as much as possible.w @zionwright_

NATURAL NOMAD FARMS FARMING GONE MODERN BY SAMUEL THORNHILL

Their focus: to produce high quality niche produce with minimal environmental impact.

46

@ATLANTICCU R R E NT

ucked away at the end of a long winding dirt road in Boynton Beach farm country lies Natural Nomad Farms. A lean, and mean outfit operated by agricultural enthusiasts Nick Denney, his wife Vanessa, and Jason Hyde. Their focus: to produce high quality niche produce with minimal environmental impact. They employ hydroponic and sustainable agriculture practices, whereby everything they grow is pesticide-free, GMO free, and devoid of any other harmful

chemicals. Their growing operation is quite unique in the sense that all their produce is grown above ground, hence the moniker “Natural Nomad,” because in essence their farm can be mobilized and replicated indoors if need be. Natural Nomad came onto the scene two years ago, taking a chef driven approach to the type of produce they cultivated, starting with various types of micro greens. Since then, they’ve expanded into other

niche products that complement the micro greens like Cuban oregano, butterfly sorrel, cucamelons, shishito peppers, edible flowers, a myriad of tomato varieties, and much more. These products are “tailor-grown” to their chef client’s specifications, most notably, the Chef de Cuisine at Jose Andres’s flagship restaurant Bazar in Miami. As I was guided through their 3,000 square foot plot of nirvana, Nick and Jason picked off >>

FOOD samplings of their exquisite produce for me to try. My taste buds weren’t ready for what I was about to experience. Everything was so fresh, and bursting with their own distinctive flavors. I literally could have stayed there all day. One flower in particular I’ll be sure to remember long after my visit is the Buzz Button, a.k.a. the Toothache Plant. This pretty yellow and red cone-shaped flower, when eaten, left me with a tingling numbing sensation in my mouth that I have never experienced before. Essentially, it’s a party favor with numerous culinary and cocktail applications. It just so happens that this flower is also one of the farm’s best sellers. Natural Nomad Farms has begun to increase its footprint in the local community in an effort to connect people with their food again on a visceral level. In their view, the country’s current food system has placed more emphasis on the durability and longevity of our food so it can be shipped further distances and have a longer shelf life. However, the tradeoff is that we’re sacrificing freshness and most of all, taste. In order to combat the established paradigm, Natural Nomad started with participating in the Boca Raton and Delray Beach Green Markets. In addition, via their “Mobile Market” they offer delivery of their produce and micro greens within a 50-mile radius of their farm, to ensure that they are delivered at peak freshness. This movement to close the gap between people and their food is a crusade that has only just begun for Natural Nomad Farms. They plan to expand to a bigger plot in the very near future to accommodate the demand for their produce, in addition to implementing some other exciting programs. Be sure to stay tuned to see what these nomads have in store.

BEHIND THE PIECE

WITH AMANDA VALDES

“N

eptune Subterranean is one of my favorite pieces to date because of its overall transformation from beginning to end. Originally, I started layering acrylics on the canvas with another concept in mind, but became busy with a deadline which landed it in the back of my studio closet for years. Fast forward to 2015 and a brainstorming session for a new collection centered around exploring various mediums and she was born. The ocean and bodies of water are often a personal source of inspiration and I wanted to create a piece that felt as if it was submerged then collected from the depths of the sea (along with a ethereal Neptune-inspired being to match). After a night of research, I found polymer clay was the best material to sculpt the barnacles framing the canvas and set out to find supplies the next morning. I spent that evening (and many more) hand rolling various sized spheres to morph into barnacles and eventually even enlisted the help of a few close friends. It was one of those all-encompassing pieces that I was ridiculously excited to work on day after day and thoroughly enjoyed the challenges of incorporating a new medium. Neptune Subterranean also acted as a reminder that there’s a world of potential, possibility and magic in the things we pass by daily, we just have to shift focus a bit.”

COCKTAIL RECIPE

BLACK CORAL RUM + PUMPHOUSE COFFEE In this issue’s recipe, we wanted to use a couple of key ingredients using two locally made liquids: Black Coral Rum from Riviera Beach and Pump House “Dawn Patrol” cold brew coffee from Jupiter. Note that this is definitely a coffee drinkers’ cocktail. Perfect for a late night boost and even Sunday brunch. For some bartender insight, we strolled over to Guanabanas to get their take on a cocktail that would blend the ingredients well, but would still clearly bring out the flavor of the rum and coffee.

WHAT YOU NEED

DO THIS

Black Coral Spiced Rum Pumphouse Dawn Patrol Cold Brew Chocolate liqueur Guinness Raw sugar or coconut sugar Mixing glass Martini glass Ice

Pour ice into a mixing glass Add 2 oz of rum Add 2 oz of cold brew Add 1 oz chocolate liqueur Stir Rim martini glass with sugar Pour stirred mixture into glass Float 2 oz of guinness on top Enjoy!
