Here’s another list of websites music lovers may want to bookmark and visit frequently. They validate the theory that the marketplace of ideas is vibrant and in full swing in the DMV area.
When we first came across DMV JAMS we could see right away its creators were on to something. It’s a platform for introducing new artists and their music that’s narrowed down to a specific geographic area. Very cool, because there’s so much noise on the Internet that tons of great music is missed by an audience that would love to hear it if it were more readily available. That’s the premise, but there’s lots of other offerings on the site including their own channel.
The mission of DMV Unplugged is to increase the familiarity and knowledge of local musicians, models, athletes and fashion designers among local residents and to showcase the DMV lifestyle to a national audience. They’ve got a full team, writing about music, fashion, sports, and politics. One great feature on their homepage is a listing of the top 10 DMV songs. If you’re making music, or just love music, check them frequently for the latest updates.
The Urban Feed is sleek and stylish, beautifully designed and does an excellent job of doing exactly what it promises – feeding viewers the latest in music, fashion, and entertainment. It’s the creation of Kiki Ayers who is the CEO and is responsible for content and business aspects.
If Marcus J. Moore is the preeminent music critic in the DMV then DMV Spectrum (he’s the Founder and CEO) automatically has to be regarded as a serious destination for area music lovers. It’s got videos, links to blogs, reviews and news. Seriously cool is the beat maker on the home page. Obviously, the writing is impeccable.
From DC To BC is the website of the folks responsible for coordinating last Friday’s “Don’t Wuwwy” show at the 9:30 Club so you know they’re doing good things. Very laid back and full of info about music, events, other blogs, you name it. But focus on the events. Too many times we learn about something we missed because we didn’t know it was coming up. If you want to know in advance, this is the site.
How do you become a real Diva in the music industry? The one that UK soul legend Omar calls for every US tour? Put in the work! And that’s what Jenee Bevett, whose video “Unreasonable” we are so proud to feature in the OnStage Video Showcase has done.
Jenee developed her talent singing in the church choir as a child. Her mother is a pianist and her father a percussionist, and both sing as well. After college she began gigging around the DMV area with various bands and projects. That was 15 years ago! Her first live performance was with the great DC band Suttle Thoughts.
She’s sung with Ja-Michael and Co., an acoustic project, then joined the band Congregation, led by David Boris. Following that, she joined with Cornell Pearce to co-found Alternate Root showcasing original tunes with a rock & roll edge.
For a flawless look, you need to accessorize with jewelry that matches your clothes, the color of your eyes and skin and also with the occasion. Don’t over accessorize. Jewelry looks better if you wear only a few, spectacular pieces. There are different types of accessorize jewelry for every moment of the day. Jewelry is the perfect way to show your personality to others and to make any regular outfit become outstanding. Good-quality jewelry accessorizes any type of outfit in a perfect way, from a business suit to an evening gown.
You need to be really careful about the jewelry you put on for that moment when you leave your house. If you are getting ready for work and your regular work outfit is a business suit, then you should wear sophisticated, elegant, but at the same time simple and discreet jewelry. The best accessorize jewelry for daytime, especially for an office setting, are gold and silver pieces, beautifully crafted, but without big stones or gems. For ladies, a thin necklace, matching earrings (not over-sized ones) and maybe a bracelet is quite enough.
If you are getting ready for an entire day of fun, shopping with your friends, having lunch or coffee, you can let your imagination run wild and you can wear a lot of funny accessorize jewelry. You can put on an unconventional gemstone decorated necklace, a matching bracelet and some outstanding, colorful earrings. Make sure that the color and the style of your clothes match the accessorize jewelry you are wearing. For example, if you are wearing accessorize jewelry decorated with blue stones; your outfit should also feature some blue items.
