The arts have been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember. Creativity drives passion. This is a weekly look into the world of artists in music, art and dance and what they create. Feed your imagination!
JoJo Gomez “Pass That Dutch”
I came across this great choreographer after noticing her classes at Edge Studios in Hollywood. I take ballet classes there and plan on taking some modern and jazz funk classes soon. She is a hot ball of energy and has the moves to prove herself. The fluidity is very apparent and makes you want to just…well…get up and dance. Her love for dance bleeds out on the floor. I have much respect for those dedicated to the art of dance. It is a lifelong commitment. Her videos have been gaining viewership on Youtube (check out her channel here). Great choreography and entertainment value to boot. She was part of Brian Friedman’s “Breathe On Me” routine I featured in Next Time June 19th. Keep doing what you love JoJo, you’re amazing at it. This video takes me back with one of Missy Elliott’s biggest hits Pass That Dutch. Bodes itself very well for choreography. Fluid from beginning to end, I cannot take my eyes off these dancers. Pour your heart out.
Fozzy | Fav track: Lights Go Out
I recall hearing some Fozzy songs a couple years ago. I was listening to Heidi and Frank the other day (KLOS) and Chris Jericho was on talking about his upcoming role in Sharknado 3. This brought the band back to the front of my mind. I remembered how great they were. So I spent the rest of the day blasting their albums in my car. Good times. They hail from Georgia and are comprised of Chris Jericho (vocals), Rich Ward (guitar), Billy Grey (guitar), Jeff Rouse (bass) and Frank Fontsere (drums). They are embarking on a kick ass world tour through Europe this July through December. Gonna do my very best to go to one of the shows! I’ve never experienced a concert abroad. I hear they are epic. Check this band out if you haven’t heard their songs. It’s a rockin good time. Can I admit I danced around in my lace panties quite a bit after listening to their stuff again?? (I’m blushing)

“It’s not easy being cheesy” (from his Instagram)
Jason is a Mosaic Portrait Artist. I stumbled upon his body of work through a random google search for mosaic artists. Random it may seem… but I fell in love with the uniqueness and pure awesomeness his artwork provides. So cool!! He uses objects, yarn, food, etc etc to create portraits. Some really cool famous ones that caught my fancy include Snoop Dogg, Andy Warhol and P!nk. The list goes on, lots of super great stuff on his website. Yeah!!
