Back by popular demand – Mikey Gits at Bahama Breeze! Don’t forget to wear your dancing shoes and get ready to join the Conga Line! The calendar may indicate that summer is over, but the music will bring you to the beach!! At the April Luncheon, Mikey had everyone in attendance singing along and dancing between the tables. In addition to his original music works, Mikey plays popular Reggae and summer beach-themed songs by the Beach Boys, Jimmy Buffet and others. He also honors audience requests. Mikey grew up in Montego Bay, Jamaica. His parents introduced him to a variety of musical styles at an early age, and he has been performing professionally since the age of 13. He currently tours worldwide with his band Bonafide. If you enjoyed Mikey’s performance in April, you will certainly want to come see him again.

September 13, 2023 - Suncoast Hotel and Casino
To compliment the amazing venue for our luncheon, The Lohan School of Shaolin will perform a traditional "Lion Dance". The Lion Dance is a traditional Asian art form that originated in China and dates back 5000 years. Performers wearing a lion costume mimic a lion's movements and tell a story. The Lion Dance is utilized to scare away evil energy and bring good luck and fortune to the audience. Since the evil spirits are afraid of loud noises, the dance is accompanied by a drummer. The Lohan School of Shaolin was founded in Las Vegas in 1994 by Sifu Seephan Baugh. "Sifu" is a Cantonese term for teacher, and also has the connotation of father. Shaolin is one of the oldest styles of Kung Fu Buddhism. It combines Chan ( Zen) philosophy and martial arts. The name Lohan was chosen in honor of 18 of 500 monks who were most appreciated by the Chinese to overcome cultural differences when spreading Buddhism to China. The Lohan School of Shaolin is affiliated with The Las Vegas Buddhist Temple , a place for prayer, mediation, and refuge; and The Lohan Spiritual and Cultural Center, home for meditation, and education. Buddhism is not a religion, but an understanding and pathway to enlightenment.
