He’s the Greatest Dancer! Bobby Banas’ Gets Down to the Nitty Gritty!

It’s a tragedy really that many of our world’s most talented people can go unnoticed for so long. But now, with the advent of the internet, we are constantly rediscovering precious gems of our rich collective history and culture!

Like, Bobby Banas!

Bobby Banas swinging his hips and hair for some major 1960s swag. 

You might have noticed this 60s bad ass popping up all over the interweb recently for his wild poppin’, non-stoppin’ style in a 1964 segment of The Judy Garland Show showcasing the latest youth dance craze – the Nitty Gritty!

Go figure that over 50 years after the fact, he would become a viral sensation. Time is funny like that . .  .

We say it all the time; style isn’t just what you wear – it’s how you live! And judging from this bad boy’s dance moves, Bobby has enough style to give for all of us.

Tell me after watching this you don’t feel inspired!

We were surprised/not surprised to find out this rebel dancer was also featured in the epitomizing classic masterpiece WEST SIDE STORY in the iconic Jets gang, and also made out with Marilyn Monroe in the 1950 flick “Let’s Make Love”.

To our knowledge, Bobby Banas, a resident New Yorker,  is live and well to this day.

Hope he’s enjoying his glory, and hope you are too.

Until next time,

All the young dudes (I want to hear you)

Boogaloo dudes (and I want to talk to you all of you)
Carry the news

– All the Young Dudes,  Mott the Hoople {written by David Bowie}

The band Mott the Hoople are all Gods of Glam in our eyes; and we weren’t the only ones who see that! In fact, the King of the Gods of Glam himself practically initiated them into the cult with this 1972 cult hit penned by the master himself.

Bowie also offered the band “Suffragette City” after learning the band was on the brink of breaking up just at the verge of their success.

They went through several names for themselves including The Doc Thomas Group, The Shakedown Sound, and the Silence – but it was the 1966 novel, Mott the Hoople, by Willard Manus that truly stuck.

We love this jam, and hope you do too!

DON’T GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS!

The Juno Awards are back in Hamilton this year, and its definitely brought a huge slew of exciting things to do in the city this weekend.

Tonight on James St. N the Juno’s will be taking over James St. North’s monthly Art Crawl for a Juno Crawl that will integrate the already slam packed night with over 30 music venues up and down the strip for a one-of-a-kind night of music, art, and of course, FASHION!

The Eye of Faith will be open all night to take in the festivities and serve our loyal style-wise clients with exuberant and timeless pieces from the {past} to bring alive in the {present} and invoke the {future}!!!

We will also be open all weekend, including Sunday, in case you can’t make it for Friday and Saturday (or in case, Alanis Morissette needs say, a dress, or anything else of the sort!).

GHOST HOLE V FUNDRAISER TONIGHT!

GHOST HOLE V FUNDRAISER Poster

It’s that time of year again – October, our favorite month, not only for all the fun you can have with Fall Fashions, but also for all the creepy cool stuff that begins to emerge with Halloween in our midst!! And with Halloween and all that ghoulishly good inspiration all around comes the re-emergence of GHOST HOLE, the all-night art extravaganza which will take place on Toronto Island in its fifth incarnation.

Also exciting is that yours truly will be taking part in the goings-on this year with an art installation entitled “Voodoo Beach” which will bring light to Toronto’s dark slave history with the imagined rituals and romance of voodoo in all its many faces.

This Friday join the curators of GHOST HOLE, and some of Toronto’s best bands for a fundraiser for the event which will provide much needed $$$ to pay for this one of a kind wild night of art and horror, and help provide some much-needed income to the night’s artists’ who have come together to choreograph this wickedly wild experience that you will never forget.

Check out bands Fresh Flesh, Doctor Ew, Wake Island, CRHYMES, and Rambunctious at Double Double Land (209 Augusta Ave) in Kensington Market with a suggested donation of $5 and plenty of cheap drinks to be had all the night through! Sounds like a blast, right?

Be there or be square. Check out this wicked promotions video by the ever-talented Brandon A. Dalmer for the night’s event to help get you in the mood. . .

GHOST HOLE V will take place on Toronto Island at Artscape Gibraltar Point on October 26 and runs deep into the night.
