Backyard Beats! MCH Health and Rehabilitation Center: Bocas Breeze

August 20, 2023 @ 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM


Bocas Breeze was formed in 2021 when live music made a comeback. The act features traditional Caribbean music along with island versions of well-known popular music, and is available for solo instrumental steelpan, appropriate for lower volume supporting sounds, or as a duo with percussion for more rhythmic occasions. 

Charlie Short has played steelpans for 30+ years and performed with Despers  USA Steel Orchestra in the Brooklyn West Indian Day Panorama competition,  Y2K. A native of Kenosha, Charlie is an independently contracted performer and  educator in the greater Milwaukee area as a percussion specialist for 10 years at  Alverno College and currently with Milwaukee Public Schools, as well as  maintaining a private lesson studio, The Percussion Studio, MKE. Listeners of local  radio may be familiar with his work as composer, arranger, studio musician, and  producer under the band name Charlie Vibes along with rising star Amanda Huff  creating original Milwaukee Music .

Bony Benavides is a percussionist from Bogota, Colombia. She has been playing  Latin percussion since she was 14 years old. In addition to Bocas Breeze, she  performs extensively in Milwaukee with De la Buena, Samba da Vida, and Onda Tropical. As an educator, she is a percussion specialist for Milwaukee Public  Schools, Bembe Drum and Dance, and Concordia University.
