On June 14th and 15th, Tobacco Road in Miami is set to Host a 2 day benefit concert for John Tovar, featuring Nuclear Valdez. A veritable “who’s who” of Miami music talent spanning over 30 years will play in support of legendary manager, John Tovar.

When John Tovar’s mother passed away in April after a lengthy battle with a terminal illness, musician Johnny Aguiló and close friend Rich Ulloa immediately reached out and offered their services. Within no time, the singer / leader of the Grammy-nominated Conjunto Progresso (Aguilo) and Y&T Records founder (Ulloa), had collectively assembled a cavalcade of Miami acts and enlisted the hosting services of Tobacco Road.

Thus, the “Nuclear Valdez & Friends 2-Day Benefit Concert for John Tovar” was born. “I’m humbled and touched by the outpouring response,” says Tovar, the erstwhile manager of such nationally successful acts of The Mavericks, Marilyn Mason and the Spooky Kids, Nuclear Valdez and others. “He helped launch and guide the careers of many Miami musical groups,” says Aguiló. “This is a way for us to give back – it’s the least we can do for a man that has done so much for so many.”

The two-day event will feature acts that have played Tobacco Road at some point during the 80’s, 90’s or 00’s. Nuclear Valdez is slated to headline on the main outdoor stage both nights. Additional artists performing during the 2 day event include: Charlie Pickett, John and Jim Camacho from The Goods, Forget the Name, Oba Frank Lords, DJ Alan Trueba, The Dyslexic Postcards, Black Janet, Red Road, Ricky Valido and the Hialeah Hillbillies, Electric Piquete and many more.

Admission to the 21 and over benefit is $10 each night or $15 for two-day passes. The music is scheduled to begin at 8:30 p.m. on both nights. Tobacco Road is located at 626 South Miami Ave in downtown Miami. Call 305.374.1198 or visit Tobacco Road’s site for more information.
