What is “Alive Music?”

We’re hunters.

At Jooksi we’re constantly on the look out for the next fantastic musical experience. We believe that awesomely dope music helps you feel not just live, but ALIVE.

That’s what we here to support and spread.

That song that will still be “your jam” fifty years from now.

That concert that took you higher than a drug.

That artist who captures your life in their music.

We exist because we’re dedicated music fans who live for that feeling and love to share it with others.

So whether you join us in the hunt, or wait for us to bring you the goods, thank you for listening to our playlists, hanging out with us at shows, and joining our Jooksi Alive Music Journey!

Meet Fredara: Jooksi Chief Music Evangelist

I’m a native Floridian transplanted in New York who loves football, beaches, food, and FAMU and wants to open a jook joint.

When I nursery school graduation program said that “Fredara┬áloves to sing, never runs out of words, and always does her work.”

I’m not sure if they were describing my behavior or prognosticating my future, either way it’s a completely accurate assessment.

Valentine’s Day: #TeamOverIt

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and of course we have music to express our innermost feelings about love through song. But to be fair, I wanted to make sure those in or out of love – and in maybe between – had dope to listen.

Side Note: We see you Cupid and all your complicated ways.

Hey, sometimes love feels like the most soulful ballads. Well – *cough* – other times it’s as Marvin Gaye says in song, “but there were those other moments too…”

So I’ve taken the liberty to put together 2 playlists for #teamintoit and #teamoverit. Whichever side you find yourself on this particular day, shuffle and enjoy these tunes in no particular order. You deserve it.

And please don’t forget to share your personal favorites are whether they made our playlists or not.
