Below is a snapshot of the first Cocktails and Concerts from earlier this year with friends for Tori Kelly. 

Miami influencers were treated to the first round of #CocktailsandConcerts this past Sunday as apart of the kickoff of the VJMedia Spring/Summer concert series. I recently partnered with the Fillmore Miami Beach to give fans, followers and tastemakers an up front and personal look inside the concert world at the Fillmore Miami Beach. Fans were treated to cocktails in the VIP Lounge before taking in the first installment of the show featuring Grammy Nominated rising star Tori Kelly. Here’s a few pics from this Sunday’s soiree:

Tori graced the stage with that epic voice and style to match and the performed for over an hour creating a social media frenzy with her hits “Hollow” and “Shoulda Been Us”.  Four lucky winners and their guests came along for the experience and capped off a fabulous Miami evening.

We look good on a Sunday!

Congrats again to the winners and stay close for more #CocktailsandConcerts this season. Here’s to a fabulous concert season ahead and if there’s a concert you’d like to attend, give me a shout on social (@MsVanessaJames on Twitter and Periscope and @vanessajamesmedia on FB and IG) and let me know. Never know, I might just send you to a show of your choice!  What’s next for Cocktails and Concerts this year? We’ll be taking in Leon Bridges this fall as well as a few surprise shows along the way. 

Cheers, Vanessa
