Workshop Houston invites you to join us on Friday, May 8th at Rockefeller’s for PARTY SHOP, a night of music, food, drink, art, and fashion! Featuring a special concert by Tank and the Bangas, the evening will showcase Workshop Houston’s artistic energy and mission to foster creative transformation for youth. All proceeds benefit Workshop Houston’s creative youth development programs.

Tickets are $200.00 or $375.00 for two; sponsorships include four VIP tickets and begin at $1,000.00. Become a sponsor or purchase tickets here!

Our headliners, Tank and the Bangas, have been described as “one of the most thrilling, unpredictable and sonically diverse bands on the planet.” Huffpost writes,”There are no words or descriptions that can accurately summarize what this band can do with a crowd and a stage; Tank and the Bangas make music that you have to experience.” The band made national news in 2017, when they beat out 6,000 contestants to win NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert contest. In 2019, they were nominated for a Grammy for Best New Artist.

In addition to an incredible performance by “one of the most thrilling, unpredictable and sonically diverse bands on the planet”, PARTY SHOP will include a silent auction of items and experiences, plentiful food and drink, and music and design projects from students. Proceeds provide vital support to Workshop Houston’s creative youth development programs, which connect hundreds of young people to artistic resources and mentors in the Beat Shop (music production), Discovery Shop (technology and programming), Scholar Shop (academic enrichment) and Style Shop (fashion design).

Week in and week out, Workshop Houston brings high-quality arts-based programs to students, who work hard to master sophisticated mediums. Many put in long hours to develop their creative practice while facing difficult personal circumstances. At the end of the day, all this effort is for the joy and growth that stems from making art, making the world a better place, and making connections with each other. PARTY SHOP is a celebration of the challenge and the love that we share when we build community and harness the power of the arts to transform lives.

To be a part of PARTY SHOP, please see the attached RSVP card or purchase tickets and sponsorship here!

We look forward to being with you for what is sure to be a memorable night. For more details, please contact Katy Goodman at or 713 807 7911.
