Thank you Miami for being sexy even in the dead of winter. Thank you Art Basel for bringing together so much art and love in one town. Thank you SVEDKA for giving us delicious libations. Thank you Morgans for giving us a beautiful space to get down in, and thank YOU for coming out and having a grand old time with us.
For the next installment of our SVEDKA Vodka Music Sessions we head south to Miami Beach for the Art Basel festivities. Showcasing the art of Alec Monopoly and featuring the soulful sounds of Aloe Blacc & The Grand Scheme plus Blaqstarr, along with special DJ sets by Nick Cohen, Jaime Biden, and Alexandra Richards, the night begins at 9pm on Saturday, December 4th, at Sunset Lounge at Mondrian, A Morgans Hotel. Entrance is free but strictly RSVP only. Please arrive early, as RSVP does not guarantee admission.
In case you were not able to flock south to Miami in March for the annual Winter Music Conference (where precious little conferencing actually happens), there was a great deal of amazing music showcased non-stop throughout the week. Watch some highlights from Giant Step’s 14th Annual Sunset Soiree, co-presented by Levi’s and Windows 7, featuring Estelle, Rye Rye, Questlove, Gilles Peterson and many more.
A collection of photos from our three Sunset Soiree events at Delano during Winter Music Conference in Miami Beach this year: A Night of Latin Flavor with Gilles Peterson, Bobbito Garcia a.k.a. Kool Bob Love, Alex Barck of Jazzanova, Nickodemus and Chico Mann on Friday; Estelle, Rye Rye and more, Poolside on Saturday; and Gilles Peterson with Questlove at The Florida Room on Saturday. The three events were co-presented by Levi’s and Windows 7.
After the poolside festivities subside on Saturday, March 27th, the late night party moves into the Florida Room. Gilles Peterson returns for an exclusive double bill alongside Questlove, who makes his second appearance with Giant Step at WMC, but this time with MC Yameen Allworld. We are now taking RSVPs for this event to accommodate the popular demand. We also highly recommend a table reservation for this event. For your reservation please email firstname.lastname@example.org . Hurry though, because space is very limited.
