Last night Miami Beach was alive. Not to say that it usually isn’t, but if you were out & about on our beautiful streets, you know what I’m talking about. Art Basel is in full blast & I couldn’t be more excited!

I’m so honored & thrilled to have had the chance to attend the Pop Up Piano Miami Fundraising Concert last night. The entire Pop Up Piano committee put on an incredible event with a special concert put on by singer/songwriter Yuna, the unbelievable Elew, and a surprise performance by Miami’s own, Cris Cab.

If you haven’t had a chance to tickle the ivories, check out the pop-up performances happening Friday & Saturday in the Midtown/Wynwood area.

The gorgeous butterfly piano will be at Sugarcane for the next few days with a POPM guest performance by local musicians Locos Por Juana & Suenalo on Friday, Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m.

Ross Von Rosenberg’s colorful piano will be at the Wynwood Cigar Factory on Saturday, Dec. 8 with  performances by Juke, the Heavy Pets & Arboles Libres beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Pop Up Piano Miami Debuts Art Basel Pianos.

As December approaches, most people are feeling anxious about Christmas. However, due to the lack of Christmas-like weather Miami is dealt each year, I’m anxious about Basel.

Pop Up Piano Miami combines the love of art, music and charity while enriching the community.

Last night I attended my first Art Basel event of the year, Pop Up Piano Miami’s Pre-Basel mixer where 8 different artists from around Miami displayed Steinway pianos with their own personal twists. Artists included Eric Estrada AKA Wase One, Ivan Roque, Desiree Kawass, Rodrigo Gaya, Federico Carosio III, Ruben Ubiera, Alexander Mijares and Ross Von Rosenberg.

The artists were chosen out of dozens of applicants by the Pop Up Piano Committee to customize Steinway-donated pianos, creating an original, one-of-a kind, functional pieces of art. The pianos are then put on public display throughout the community during Art Basel Miami Beach Week, making it one of the city’s most wide-spread music and public arts project during Basel Week.

The event was held at the Miami Ironside Warehouse, an absolute perfect venue in Wynwood. Crowds of art lovers gathered around to be the first to see the colorful pianos in person. Thanks to social media, I got to see bits and pieces of the pianos beforehand, but in person they were simply breathtaking.

KIND Snacks and Pattycake Bakery provided the snacks. Steep City Teas & Deep Eddy Vodka provided the drinks & DJ Scotty K provided the tunes.

A BIG shout out goes out to the incredible Pop Up Piano committee for creating such an amazing program and event.

Visit the Pop Up Miami official website  for more information on their gala taking place on Dec. 5 at the Perry Hotel South Beach.

Stay tuned for my upcoming Basel posts! Happy Baseling! xo
