Boys Are Back In Town
Hold On Loosely
Message in a Bottle
Miami’s premier 80’s cover band – playing all the songs you want to hear.
We provide entertainment for any event. Live Pop/Rock music from the 80s. Some of our influences include Police, Rush, The Cure, Van Halen, U2, and more. The musicians that make up this band have been playing for many years. It was Juan Ito’s idea to come up with this dream team. He always wondered how awesome it would be to have all of them work together. After Juan’s many years of performing with different bands, he thought it would be time to “own it” as they say. After a few changes in the band’s infrastructure, Juanabe became settled. And the rest is history. In 2018, Juanabe was born.
Juan has been a musician playing all over Miami with different bands for many years, but it was time to create a band with musicians who believed in a bigger picture. Juan plays guitar, composes, and sings. He is a talented front man who can energize a crowd and keep the party going! One of the greatest things that this band has that sets us apart is the ability to produce rich harmonies with Juan, making our live performances something special and unforgettable
Luis Lopez (Lu), the latest addition to Juanabe, is a seasoned musician that has been performing guitar, bass, and vocals, for decades. He is a husband and father of two beautiful girls, who are also musicians. Luis played with Robert for many years in Latin Groove, and currently plays with his two daughters in a worship band named The Call (@thecallmiami)
His guitar playing spanning many styles and excellent ability to harmonize vocally adds a new dimension to the band’s already energetic party sound.
Albert Fortes is an amazing guitarist, luthier, a joker, a friend, and a brother. Albert is the glue that holds the band together. The key to a great rock band is a guitarist. His attention to detail is key, as you can tell in the guitars he makes, and in the way he pays tribute to the guitarist in the songs we cover by accurately reproducing the tones from the original artist.

Juanabe was originally Juan’s creation, but it has become a collaboration of 6 great musicians with a common purpose. That is to entertain and challenge ourselves to become better. Juanabe is us, Juanabe is you. We all strive to be different and better. We all “Juanabe” remembered for what we contributed to this world. The smiles on people’s faces when we play is our contribution. We play the songs you didn’t know you wanted to hear!
