The Event Nerd Hosts Questlove in Hip Hop History Brunch

Dallas performers teamed up with Questlove in this educational immersive event

Back in April 2022, The Event Nerd partnered with Capital One to organize a unique hip hop brunch experience in the city of Dallas. The event, held at The Factory in Deep Ellum, Dallas, took the audience on a journey through the history of hip hop using visual and symphonic entertainment. The performance was curated by hip hop icon Questlove, who served as both musical director, DJ, and performer. Other major local musical creators included the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Jeremy Biggers, and JM Rizzi, and together with local nonprofits Dallas Black Dance Theatre and Big Thought, the projection-mapped experience immersed the audience in each song. Award-winning Dallas-based caterer Low Country Quisine, headed by Jolie Oree-Bailey, provided attendees with a southern brunch to complement the musical journey.
