Jim Beam Welcome Sessions

Introducing Jim Beam Welcome Sessions: all together for SA’s best alternative music

While SA’s entertainment industry continues to suffer the ongoing effects of lockdown, a lot of us are feeling more disconnected than ever. Constantly reminiscing on the last live acts we’ve seen. Fortunately this too is about to be a thing of the past.

Jim Beam is bringing us together. The merging of artists, venues and music lovers. The feeling of being a part of the SA music scene with the launch of their Jim Beam Welcome Sessions.

The Welcome Sessions are all about creating connections between amazing acts, some you wouldn’t ordinarily expect to feature together. It’s a demonstration of their shared love for the music and the local scene to remind fans of the essence of live music, that welcoming spirit – something they’ve been missing over these long months.

From blues icon Dan Patlansky and composer Hugo Veldsman, to rock ‘n’ roll cool kids The Tazers and traditional folk-rock group Urban Village, each Jim Beam Welcome Session will push the boundaries of what’s possible when genres mix, creating moments where it’s the power of music, and nothing else, that’s the connecting force. 

Jim Beam is the legendary Kentucky bourbon whiskey that has long been celebrated as the welcoming spirit that brings people together. The Jim Beam Welcome Sessions are a commitment of support, not just to the music industry, but to the venues and fans that make it all possible . It’s a warm invitation to come and experience the joy of live music once again, and to remember what it feels like to truly belong.

Texx and the City will be at each Jim Beam Welcome Session, so whether you’re joining us at the gigs for a Jim Beam, or you’re curled up at home with one, you won’t miss a beat! Keep your eyes peeled to our social for weekly updates and exclusive competitions.
