Jack Daniels Presents Arts x Beats and Lyrics
Art has a unique way of expressing real life experiences and capturing the essence of human existence. Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey and Gentleman Jack presented the widely anticipated Arts x Beats and Lyrics (AB+L) tour at the Birmingham Museum of Art last night.
It’s safe to say that the majority of Birmingham was in the building. For nearly four hours, I watched a line continue to grow to more than a thousand attendees trying to enter the posh event. (Exact Numbers hasn’t been verified)
AB + L is a traveling interactive art gallery and hip hop event that supports visionary artists and musicians by providing a platform for authenticity, creativity, and individuality. The 21st Century art gallery experience is gravitating audiences across the nation. The event also gave local DJs an undiscovered artists a chance to showcase their talents on a major platform last night.
In it’s 11th installment, the event has featured appearances by Grammy Award Winners Snarky Puppy, Teddy Riley and Kendrick Lamar. The Birmingham tour stop featured an appearance by Billboard chart-topping recording artist, Mannie Fresh.
The free, art and entertainment event brought a diverse audience from across the southeast. Produced by Jabari Graham, the highly success art-music jam featured exclusive pieces curated by Dwayne “Dubelyoo” Wright. Arts, Beats, and Lyrics shows what can happen when a dream is allowed to flourish with the support of major brands. If AB+L is in a city near you, it’s definitely an experience to remember.
