The band comprises of former and current members of the Steve Miller band who were on the island for the very first time and thrilled with the hospitality and beauty of La Isla Bonita. The concert was a fundraising event for the benefit and maintenance of the South Ambergris Caye Neighbourhood Watch (SACNW). Peter Nolan, head of the SACNW welcomed everyone to the concert and thanked the audience for its support. The over three-hour concert brought hits of the 70’s, 80s, and 90’s to life and the crowd did not hesitate to dance the evening away.Rockin with Abracadabra Concert at Mahogany Bay-11
