The City of Pompano Beach, Shipwreck Park and Florida based concert and festival promoters are now working together in support of the Bahamas to host One Love Bahamas, a benefit concert for victims of Hurricane Dorian to aid recovery and rebuilding efforts in the Bahamas. The event will be held on Saturday, February 8th, 2020 at the Amphitheater in Pompano Beach. All event proceeds will benefit Hurricane Dorian victims in the Bahamas and be administered by Shipwreck Park a 501 (c) (3) corporation.
The one day benefit is being produced by South Florida based festival organizers, Rob Tischler and Roy Anthony of Titan Entertainment. VIP packages, special reserved seating and general admission tickets are on sale now and available online through Ticketmaster.

The line-up will feature Sebastian Bach, Yngwie Malmsteen, Lita Ford, Jack Russell”s “Great White”, Foghat, Sweet, Zebra, Third World, Baha Men, Black Bean Soup, Crush, Southern Blood, Jeffrey James Gang, Mason Pace, Band of Brothers, Big Harvest, Silver Spine, Billion Dollar Babies, Shane Duncan Band, Robert Ross Blues Band, Bahamian Junkanoo Band, with and after party featuring AEROTEK.
Concertgoers can also visit the One Love Bahama Village where they peruse the straw markets, enjoy authentic island fare and experience a real Bahamian Junkanoo. There will also be a live memorabilia auction featuring items such as one-of-a-kind signed guitars, One Love swag-baskets specially designed by Hard Rock, bucket list experiences such as tickets to the Goodyear Blimp and dozens more unique items.
Shipwreck Park in conjunction with Sands Harbor Resort and Marina along with many others have gathered and dispersed more than 850,000 pounds of donated goods to the Bahama relief efforts thus far.
Title Sponsor and Director of Operations of UCI Bahamas LTD, Tony Misuraca has organized his team and their efforts to build 3 spec homes that are fully funded by his contacts and sponsors that are supporting the One Love Bahamas event and UCI efforts to clean up and rebuild the islands. The families to be awarded the first three UCI spec homes will be announced live on stage at the Feb. 8 benefit.
The goal is to raise $400,000 to create funding for the building of infrastructure, homes, business and programs to place Bahamian residents back into their own local community. “The program is all about returning people to their homes, and giving back. These qualities do not have a limit,” Misuraca says, “our volunteers, mentors, students, and start up entrepreneurs who have much to offer the world and are chosen for how they are enriching their local communities.”
Just under an hour plane ride away from the closest Bahamian island, Florida based concert and festival promoters became deeply aware of their proximity and connection to the Bahamas, and its people, bringing the idea for a benefit concert to South Florida. “We could not stand by idly when our brothers and sisters in the Bahamas are experiencing such devastation,” said Rob Tischler, a One Love Bahamas co‐producer. That sentiment was warmly received by the City of Pompano Beach, who has been collecting donations of food, water and other survival support essentials since the deadly hurricane passed.
“By coming together as a community, we can help our Bahamian neighbors live better lives in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian.”
Shipwreck Park Pompano is an all-volunteer organization and 100% of donations made to Shipwreck Park will be directed entirely to the relief effort for the foreseeable future. Donations are tax deductible.
