Series co-produced with REVOLT TV shows a creative collaboration of food and music in a quintessential Seattle style
SEATTLE – Food and music have long been a natural pairing, going back centuries. In Visit Seattle’s new series, Turning Tables, the marriage between food and music get a serious update. Debuting Oct. 30 and airing on VISITSEATTLE.tv and REVOLT TV, Turning Tables pairs Seattle chefs with well-known and up and coming musicians, both using their creativity in their own ways to work together and create an unforgettable duet. Spurred by the chefs’ creative menus, the musicians will then compose and play a set list in a truly Seattle experience.
Turning Tables boasts both impressive Seattle-based chefs and artists alike. Chef Max Petty, Chef and Owner of the famed Eden Hill restaurant is a lover of pop music and known to have tunes playing in the kitchen, is paired with rising pop artist Jessica Domingo in the series debut. Domingo released her first album Just Vibe in 2014 and has a new single, “Moonplay” currently out. With his love of pop and her coming off a new pop release, their collaboration could be one an experience “bubbling” with enthusiasm.
“Our goal is to create content that tells the Seattle story in unique ways. Showing how ‘art inspires art’-–in this case food and music—was a natural fit that is just so Seattle, and can’t be replicated in many other cities,” said Ali Daniels, SVP and Chief Marketing Officer at Visit Seattle. “Turning Tables builds on the success of our previous series with REVOLT TV, Sounds by the Sound, but brings forth Seattle’s notable food scene along with a great soundtrack.”
