Welcome To The Auction!


Ability Explosion and Power Access Inc. had its beginnings in South Beach, Miami more than seven years ago, putting on various events including Dining in the Dark and the Biz-Ability Luncheon attended by local public figures and celebrities alike. Sure to entertain, these initiatives also raise awareness of those with disabilities and make much needed policy changes in the City. Now the nonprofit is making noise again with the First Annual South Beach Jazz Festival. Over the course of four days on December 7-11, Colony Theater will host ticketed performances while open-air numbers by local musicians are expected to draw crowds by the Euclid Circle and 1111 Lincoln Road on the famed Lincoln Road Mall. 

“The Jazz Fest is all about bringing our community together through the universal sound of music," nonprofit founder David New said, “but what’s most special here is that every single act will showcase the artistry of at least one person with a disability.”

David New, the founder of Ability Explosion, is an artist at heart who attended art schools and followed this passion to the thriving scene that South Beach had to offer. After losing his sight in 2001 from a rare eye disease, David has become an advocate for those with disabilities.

Miami Beach is the backdrop of many popular festivals and expos with its mix of historical and modern hotels complemented by an adored foodie culture and melting pot of people. The South Beach Jazz Festival is hoping to forge a connection through Classic, Latin and New Orleans-style tunes that dismantles pity or avoidant attitudes that many feel for those with disabilities. In coming years, as it matures into a bonifide institution, the South Beach Jazz Festival will expand throughout the city and deepen Miami’s reputation for cultural innovation and acceptance of all walks of life.

The organization is currently accepting sponsors and volunteers.

Ability Explosion was founded in 2009 and Power Access Inc. in 2010. They are both headquartered in South Beach of Miami, Florida.
