Jenn has always had a strong passion for the arts the fusion of visual and performing arts into Hollywood nightlife, creating past events such “ArtEffect” Thursday nights at Medusa Lounge & “BodyRock” Friday Nights at Ivar. Laskey Created “ArtEffect” fueled by a desire to fuse tastemakers and industry professionals from the Hollywood nightlife scene with the creative cultures and art worlds of Silver Lake, in a venue of architectural brilliance rich with history. The event showcased both up and coming DJs as well as established names, playing outside-the-box artistic music; soulful sounds crossing all genres. Additionally inspiring creativity, audio artistry is coupled with featured visual art installations at select events.

Most recently she has created ERA, a 1920s theme event, which debuted in June 2009, inspired by her great passion for the era, namely 1920s/1930s historic architecture and design. Nightlife is evolving and ERA was created to revisit this amazing historic time, mesmerizing guests with sites of the architecture, sounds of the vintage and modern live music & DJ, sights of guests decked out in vintage 20s gear, and much much more.
