The private concert series, which will run throughout the month of March, will visit cities such as New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Dallas, and Chicago, among others.
The tour is part of the brand's sustained initiative towards the US Hispanic market through live music events, which started in 2005. The concert series has presented some of the most representative Latin alternative music artists such as Zoe, Babasonicos, Beto Cuevas, Aterciopelados, Enanitos Verdes, Rabanes and both latin funk party band Los Amigos Invisibles and Latin pop "princess" Julieta Venegas, which Jack Daniel's has paired for the first time in what promises to be the best one of these programs to date.
"Jack Daniel's 150-year heritage includes a long association with music," said Laura Petry, Brand Director for Jack Daniel's. "We're proud to bring talented Latin artists to the Sala Siete concert series for our friends of Jack to enjoy."
"I have been fortunate to be part of the Jack Daniel's tour on several occasions. It has always been a great experience both for my fans and me. I am very excited to kick off another tour with Jack Daniel's®, one of the few brands that truly embraces and supports our music." said Julieta Venegas, whose latest work LOS MOMENTOS has been nominated for a Latin Grammy.
At the same time, Los Amigos Invisibles' Catire Torres said: "we are very excited to be involved in this tour and we want to thank Jack Daniel's for making these types of events happen to support the Latin music in the U.S. See you on the tour!". Their latest album REPEAT AFTER ME, reached Billboard's Top Ten chart and also received multiple Grammys® nominations.
Domino Saints, a Puerto Rican Urban/Pop duet with an explosive sound and Ulises Hadjis, a raising singer/songwriter already generating buzz in magazines such as Rolling Stone and Billboard, will be the opening acts throughout the tour. The special guest DJ for all events will be Latin Grammy® nominee Mr. Pauer.
This year's Sala Siete will be produced once again by Miami-based Hispanic marketing company SHOCK Entertainment, which has worked closely with the brand since the first concert series and has been instrumental in developing the strong tie between Jack Daniel's and Latin alternative music acts and fans.
