Bo Dean brings “FroNation” to Blueberry Hill


Beloved and phenominal St. Louis hip-hop artist Bo Dean, brought “FroNation” to Blueberry Hill this past Friday night for a riviting performance.

Positive vibes and good energy”, was the veteran rapper’s response when asked about the night. “They came out, bought merch, and had good energy“.

The show was a fortifying performance for the St. Louis native. Decked in his signature brand gear, Bo Dean exemplified the artist and activist his fans have come to know and love.

Bo Dean, with gleeful bravado, wore a “Fronited we stand, divided we fall” t-shirt, “Fronation” pants, Michael Jackson glove(signaling he’s the greatest), and all-white Nike Air Force 1 shoes. All his custom gear designed by Bria Kelly.

On a night where rap artist Young Jeezy was performing, St Louis underground converged at Bo Dean‘s performance. Not only a testament to Bo Dean‘s talent, but a testament to the strength of the St. Louis underground community.

Whole crowed lit 🙌🏾🙏🏾

Performing with a full band, Poetiq and the Poets, Bo Dean walked on stage to embracive cheers from the crowd. Shortly after his introduction to the stage, he invited the crowd to join him in saying “F@*k Cancer!“. Referring to the recent lost of his father to the disease. Then went into his song titled “F@#k’em“.

During his forty-five minute performance, Bo Dean offered his brand of soulful, up-lifting vibes, that connects social issues of today with those of the past. Bo Dean also displayed lyrical supremacy with some good old-fashion bars(rap lyrics).

He performed songs from his latest album “Fromerica”, such as “I Think I Lover Her”, “All My” and “Mental Vacay”. He also performed classic songs from his Bovember 3 project such as “Drop” and the fan favorite “Chi Chi“.

Bo Dean also tapped into some of project collaborations, which brought out rapper T Dubb-O for “Wad Up”,  Louie Boy for “Track 2”, Tylan for “Richocet“, and Jay Dee for “How could you ever“.

There were also great opening performances from Miistro Freeyo and Sal Calhoon.

The evening preceded with all around great performances from everyone who stepped foot on the stage. Bo Dean‘s upcoming project Froppreciation is set to release in early Fall 2017.

Art and culture are the portals for artistic knowledge and discovery. The Finesse Center is a place for people across all of the arts to come together to learn, connect, and share. Our mission is to create an environment in which creatives can thrive in St. Louis. As an establishment of support and resources, the Finesse Center exists to help foster your passions and lifelong dreams – a place for creatives to make a way.

The Finesse Center, named in honor of the late Tyrell A. Thompson, is a co-working space designed to be a collaboration community and resource for creatives located in the heart of downtown St. Louis, Missouri.

Among the biggest challenges for a creative freelance professional is finding an inspiring place to work, meet professionally with clients, as well as network and access resources. The Finesse Center is the answer to community’s needs by providing a creative space to work and play.

Creative professionals, who work from home, and across multiple industries and professions, need a place to work creatively and collaborate with like-minded individuals. Typical alternatives include coffee shops, libraries, and at home offices. The concept of coworking is quickly catching on in major cities in the United States and Europe. Coworking is attracting many individuals from a range of professions looking to take advantage of shared workspaces.

The Finesse Center is more than just an empty desk or lounge area. Finesse Center offers an open workspace as well as meeting areas that are well designed, trendy, comfortable, and inspiring. It will be equipped with amenities such as wifi, desktop computers, printers, digital cameras, backdrops, easels, canvasses, and more all available for its dedicated members.

Nelly to Perform with St. Louis Symphony




It’s gonna get hot in herre on February 3 — and by “herre,” we mean Powell Hall.

In an unprecedented one-night-only collaboration, the rapper Nelly will be performing that night with the St. Louis Symphony. And yes, that will mean “original symphonic twists” on the St. Louis native’s hits, including “Hot in Herre,” “Country Grammar” and “Just a Dream,” presumably with conductor David Robertson showing off his best twerk.

And while it would be easy to posit that hell has officially frozen over — that this evening will be the greatest clash of cultures since Thermopylae — we’re not sure we’d buy any of that.

After all, this is the same symphony that’s bringing you a tribute to Prince (on October 9) and has already welcomed symphonic riffs on Led Zeppelin and David Bowie and featured the music of the Legend of Zelda — which is, yes, a Nintendo game. Compared to that, “Just a Dream” seems positively, well, symphonic.

Tickets went on sale this morning; prices range from $45 to $150. If you want to shell out even more, you can pay for a VIP package that’ll score you a meet-and-greet with Nelly himself. Refreshments, we suspect, are not included.
