On the day of May 12, 2015 New York Times noted that an eleven year old boy named Joey Alexander, who is barely tall enough to see over the piano, played a sensational piece of Jazz. Joey Alexander played his classical piece at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola in, which was astonishingly sold out.
It was the cutest and most surprising thing in the world when Joey had received his very own standing ovation. Only being as tall as an adults chest, Joey Alexander stood between his own personal bassist and his drummer. The group planned on taking a bow together for their cheering audience.

The eleven year old was originally founded in Indonesia approximately three year ago. He was discovered in a town called Jakarta by a Brad Reifler (wikipedia.org). After finding out that he had such a talent, his parents decided to move him to New York, just last year. Joey became a hit in just one night’s time after giving a performance as a guest at the Lincoln Center Gala. That performance in which raised his reviews practically to the top. Joey has a few upcoming events at the Newport Jazz Festival in the month of August. He also made an album that will be released this week and is called “My Favorite Things” or “Motema”.
I love going to concerts. But not everybody is a fan of all of the shows I want to go see, and sometimes your friends end up having kids and can’t go out as often as they used to in the past. That’s why it’s necessary to find new groups of friends that you can do these sorts of things with. A perfect app for that, in my experience, has been Skout.
Chances are if you have not heard of Scout, you already have someone in your life or a just too pious to ever get with someone. Before, this write-up oversimplifies any missed opportunities. Here is all you need to know about the Skout dating app.
The obvious, it is a smart phone app, which means it is available to both android and apple mobile devices. It is a free application, and one can download it from Google play for Android devices and on i-tunes for apple devices.
At its most basic function, Skout is an app that connects people residing within same Zip code, City of state. It does not mean that, one can not connect with people in different cities, it offers that opportunity too, but for practical purposes it is meant for people who can connect physically.
The app provides an option to set up a profile, scout an area, faces pop up, or members fitting one’s criteria and boom! one is ready to chat, connect and hangout.
So, the most basic way to think about Skout is, a “drone” that will fly around for you, profile potential dates, hook-ups, ‘explorerers’, and offer you the opportunity to chat, flirt, and eventually get together at your local joint.
So what kind of people do you expect from Skout? All kinds of people join skout. It is mostly populated by individuals interested in hang-outs, hook-ups or friendships but one never knows what luck could come their way.
Off-course, once you meet someone on skout, get to meet them physically, you can decide what to do with the new relationship, and that decision is left entirely to you!
The truth is, Skout has a more detailed profile that its competitor Tinder, and it also offers more options to connect with potential dates, which is another reason that it’s better than sites like Twitter.
Is it a free app? Yes, Skout is a free app. Skouting, which is basically, chatting, talking to the potential matches, friends, locals, dates etc, is not entirely free.
There is a payment-element to it, either in kind or in cash. Before you raise your brows, the “in kind” payment might entail watching advertisements, downloading apps etc.
Skout offers features that enable its members to do anything from chatting, checking out members in different cities, being featured on its bulletin boards, surfing under the VIP lounge, and many additional features. All these can be temporarily paid for by points as purchased with cash and or with “kind”
All in all, the app is very prominent, with membership in the millions, and over 40K devices being banned from usership every month, it tells you that Skout is popular and growing fast.
The use of Location enabled software, easily provides potential matches local to a users place of interest. Its access options, where users can log in using either, Google, Facebook or new profile makes it highly flexible to set up accounts.
Finally, it is important to mention that, it is extremely easy to use, it does not occupy much phone memory. It provides provides easy access to enjoy ‘free’ services and it is certainly the place for a regular girl, boy looking to know more people.
