Our Artists

Angel Tones Steel Drum Band

Back by popular demand…  The Angel Tones Steel Drum Band!  They’ll take you to the islands with their steel drums and their lively performance! The steel drum originated on the Caribbean island of Trinidad in 1946 and is the only acoustic musical instrument invented in the 20th century. Steel drums are made right from used oil drums.  The Angel Tones Steel Band is from Fourth Avenue International Worship Center directed by Pan Paradise artist, Dexter Brown. He wittingly directed teenagers with no prior experience to the enviable position of two-time State Champions, they went on to compete internationally for the Church of God Teen Talent competition in which they won the steel drum competition in San Antonio, Texas Alamo Dome and at the RCA Dome in Indianapolis.

Dexter is  a valued and prominent community leader, who has used his musical ingenuity to instruct young people in music at the Upper Room Christian Academy and Davie Elementary.  Additionally, he vigorously volunteers his time and resources in teaching the youth at the Fourth Avenue International Worship Center, the creative art of playing music on the steel pan instruments.

Dexter has several attractive credits to his name.  He has arranged and directed music for several elementary and high school students in the South Florida region.


Billy the Marlin

billyTheMarlinBilly the Marlin is the official mascot of the Miami Marlins baseball franchise. At 8 feet tall and 250 pounds, he is “a natural-born clown and good-natured prankster“.He appears at every Marlins home game at Sun Life Stadium and Marlins Park, and performs his own routine in the middle of the 5th inning.

LOOK for Billy at 6 pm to 7pm at Christmas Near the Beach.

The Marlin’s Street Team will have a table filled with giveaways, but brush up on Marlin trivia for prizes!

Josh Bramos

josh 2Well my humble beginnings are in Mobile, Alabama where I do not remember a single thing, because we left when I was three. I will always be country at heart. I am now living in South Florida.
Church is what I belong to, and by that I do not mean a building. My family at Victory Life Church has been with me the past seven years I have been leading worship there. Few things are more enjoyable then worshipping our Maker with the masses. All will do it one day.
About 2 years ago the band and I competed and won a contest that brought us to Texas and then to Nashville. It was there that we competed for a record contract with Word Records. After a year break the band and I are back with new material and a fresh new perspective.

Grinchy Got Saved “The Musical”

grinchy rollerbladingGrinchy Got Saved is an original musical parody.  We all remember how the green guy stole Christmas, but what happened the night Grinchy Got Saved?
Join Only One Roadway, as the Gospel is presented through this parody play.  A green rollerblading furry creature entertains the audience, while the true meaning of Christmas is presented.



Jesse Jones Jr.

jesse jones jr.Jazz is alive in South Florida and Jesse Jones Jr. is here to prove it. The Miami native is a saxophonist extraordinaire and continues to be on the forefront of a burgeoning jazz renaissance in South Florida.  Jesse Jones Jr. is one of those hidden treasures that you can’t help but to share with the world. A phenomenal reed player, Jesse is technically superior on the alto, soprano and baritone saxophone, as well as flute. He combines the hard-bop influence of Cannonball Adderley, the funk of Hank Crawford, and the sweetness of Paul Desmond. Their influences may be detected within Jesse’s riffs. Add to that some of the most unusual “scat” jazz singing when Jesse sings “straight” or through his horns, and the jazz audiences go wild. The humor is international in scope since these are not words but rather sounds that move and groove with the music. His ability to captivate the audience with the classics, and adapt them to his own swinging interpretations, is legendary. “I can only thank God for His blessings. And with the love and encouragement of my wife Thelma, family, friends and incredible fans, my heart will continue to pour out the music that we love so well.
Love, Peace and Jazz
