Give A Note’s Summer Happy Hour Series in partnership with Virgin Hotels Nashville kicked off June 22 and will continue every Tuesday from 4-6 pm CDT in the Virgin Hotels Nashville Common Club through September.

Featured talent and programming will vary every week and highlight the importance of music education as we sip and celebrate a diverse group of talented artists with the Nashville community.

4 to 7pm CDT

Vault Works: EYE CONTACT, fresh off its premiere at New York City’s Equity Gallery July 14-18, is coming to Virgin Hotels Nashville July 20-27 with a VIP opening event (June 20th 4 to 7pm) in the Commons Club in conjunction with Give A Note Foundation.

The EYE CONTACT exhibition features some 20 never-before-seen and rare photographs of music icons ranging from Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z to Amy Winehouse and A$AP Rocky by three noted British photographers. Many of the photographs – outtakes and never-before-seen shots – date back to the 80s, 90s and early 2000s, often capturing the artists in their formative years before their fame and cultural impact were fully realized. One arresting example is Amy Winehouse at her first photo session (2003) predating her debut album and without her signature eyeliner.

EYE CONTACT photographers are Tim Bret-Day, Phil Knott and Derrick Santini, three British lensmen noted for their unique ability to capture iconic images of music personalities and pop culture figures. All three photographers have been exhibited in major galleries and have illustrious careers shooting in the sectors of fashion, culture, advertising and, as compellingly demonstrated in this exhibition, music.

Exhibit will be on display in Nashville, July 20-27.

Opening night features live music and DJ, with a specialty cocktail supporting music in schools through Give A Note Foundation.
