Weekend Best Bets: The Resolvers, Jazz and Charity

The Resolvers are Back

The Resolvers in Delray


The Resolvers are Back

If you like high energy fun music, don’t miss The Resolvers Friday night at the outdoor pavilion at the Delray Center for the Performing Arts.

The Resolvers were rained out last fall but agreed to come back and play the free Friday Concert Series at the pavilion. The music begins at 7:30 p.m.

The Resolvers play what is called ‘Big Band Reggae.’ As the name implies, the new sound draws influences from classic Jamaican Reggae, Rocksteady, and Ska along with American Rock, Jazz, Funk, and Soul. Their live show has been described as explosive with up to 10 musicians on stage, 5 singers, a full horn section, and a powerful brother & sister on lead vocal roles.

Rain or shine; bring your blankets and chairs, and bring the family… but PLEASE, no pets or outside food or beverages.  Food trucks and cash bar available.

Spanish River Church Sponsors

2nd Annual Ride 4 Orphans


Ride for Orphans

Ride 4 Orphans

Spanish River Church is hosting its 2nd annual Ride 4 Orphans charity bike ride on Saturday, February 15.  But we mention this early, because we want you to register.

Proceeds from the event will benefit orphans in Chad and Malawi (in Africa), in Haiti and foster children at The Place of Hope/Haven Campus in Boca Raton.


The ride starts and finishes at Spanish River Church in Boca Raton.  This year there is a choice of 30 and 62-mile routes through Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Lake Worth, and Palm Beach. Riders return to Spanish River Church on scenic AIA.  There are five rest stops along the routes hosted by partner churches:  Boynton Beach Community Church, Lake Osborne Church, Truth Point Church, West Park Baptist Church and The Avenue Church.  New this year is a Kid’s Fun Ride which will feature a four mile ride and activities for children ages 6 to 12.


Last year’s ride raised funds to provide reliable power for orphanages in Chad, Malawi and Haiti. It was the first time these orphanages had access to electricity.  An example of this is Fayeton orphanage in Gonaives, Haiti where a solar power system purchased with Ride 4 Orphans funds was installed to provide light and power along with a refrigerator and freezer for the children there.  Funds from this year’s event will go to continue those projects as well as to benefit Place of Hope, The Haven Campus in Boca Raton. The place of hope provides support and homes for children in foster care


The ride starts at 7:30 am with the kids activities beginning at 9 am.  A light breakfast is served before the ride and there is an after-ride luncheon with entertainment, awards and raffle prizes. T-shirts and goody bags will be given to the first 400 registered riders.


Participants can register online at www.ride4orphans.com or for more information call 561-994-5000.
