FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK! MUSIC AND FASHION PART 1


MUSIC continues to be one of the greatest passions and influences in my life....





This post is dedicated to Artists all over the world who are creating a positive impact on our society.  We Salute You!



NYC/Musician Kevin Patrick, former keyboard player with the band "Blondie" (one of my favorites)
Kevin's hat is from Beacon's Closet in Brooklyn, Shades are Smith Optiks, Sweater is Ralph Lauren, Coat is Banana Republic, Bag Fossil Classic and Shoes Cole Haan.

Kevin is the co-founder of Share The Mic, a really cool non-profit, that discovers, trains and connects new musical performers to global humanitarian causes.
Please stay tuned for more on STM and maybe I can even find out what's on Kevin's i-pod!


Fun Fact: Blondie gave a shout out to Grandmaster Flash and Fab Five Freddy (early pioneers of Hip Hop) on their song "Rapture" back in 1981.  The video was shot in The East Village.

USA/ Dotan Negrin travels across America with his truck, his dog and his upright piano playing on the streets of some of our biggest cities.  (I took this pic of him in Union Square)
He hopes to inspire people to pursue their dreams!         PianoAcrossAmerica



New Jersey/Musician/Technical Engineer John Bednar wearing a Ben Sherman button down, Lucky Brand jeans and Fluevog shoes.
He played a charity gig with The Don Manzo All Star Band last month to raise money for breast cancer awareness.

Bruce Springsteen...tougher than the rest!















Maryland/The Impact Society gives back by creating after school MUSIC AND ART programs for teens.  They believe (and I won't argue) that music has the power to transcend differences and bring people together. 





  Central Park on Sunday, 11/13//11





 Beauty and The Busk












Check out The Dirty Urchins (not an insult...the name of the band!)   They smash rock, folk, jazz, blues and country all together!  

I was brought to tears by The Boyd Family's version of Ave Maria (accompanied by violinist Meredith Rachel)


Strumming right along...Harpist Meta Epstein. 






 

Via Italy, Composer/Concertist Gianluca Fronda and New York City Violinist Meredith Rachel making beautiful music together...

Hear Gianluca at Vagabond's on Bleecker Street    December 1st
 

 I love the bold bright blue color of his coat.  Central Park via Korea.










Audrey shows her True Colors in this bright vintage dress with black tights and lace up boots. An unexpected combo that works!

We get the "thumbs up" from this young fashionista to keep on CREATING and making a difference for a new generation!
