Instead of the Gulizia Brothers, Joey Gulizia's Caribbean Crew will be performing familiar tunes, with a tropical twist, at Homestead National Monument Education Center on August 6, 2016 at 7 p.m. Homestead is celebrating its 80th birthday and the Centennial of the National Park Service in 2016 with the Centennial Concert Series.

Joey Gulizia is a professional musician who has been performing since childhood. He has also been involved in music education for over 30 years. Joey has traveled extensively, and music has taken him to many places including all 50 of the United States. Joining Joey for this concert of tropical music will be Ron Cooley on guitar;Greg Ahl doing percussion;and Dan Cerveny on keyboards, with Joey playing steel drum, percussion and electronic woodwinds.

"Homesteaders came from many nations and brought with them many different kinds of music and so we thought it was only fitting to have a musical group that plays music from many nations to celebrate Homestead's 80th Birthday and the Centennial of the National Park Service," said Superintendent Mark Engler.
