Cooking Up Beats – Beat Lab Academy BBQ Celebrates Graduates
At the end of each semester Beat Lab founder Yeuda Ben-Atar hosts a BBQ at his home in Eagle Rock, CA to celebrate the graduates of each class. We celebrated the most recent graduates this past weekend and it was an event filled with fun, food, and activity. Yeuda fired up the grill, cooked up some Middle Eastern food to feed the Fam, students took turns on the decks spinning tunes, and we even formed an impromptu soccer circle to pass the ball around.
As it was a bit colder this time of year the BBQ began early in the afternoon and winded down early in the evening but regardless of the weather, the Fam was able to have a great time getting to know each other. We shared stories, experiences and discussed the future – something most people fear, and that we feel artists have a special existential relationship with.
The graduation BBQ is just one of the many events we run to keep our students and alumni actively engaging with and supporting each other. We also host weekly beat cyphers, go to each other’s shows, and have the occasional movie night!
