BISS Entertainment to Present Monophonics & Tracorum on July 9th and Manicato & Bayonics on July 12th at the Giants County Fair at AT&T Park

SAN FRANCISCO, July 08, 2009 -- BISS Entertainment, a leading live music promotion, production and booking agency in San Francisco, today announced the launch of (, an online resource for artists, booking agents and promoters. BISS Entertainment also announced that four of its artists -- Monophonics, Tracorum, Manicato and Bayonics -- will be performing at the first ever Giants County Fair at AT&T Park in San Francisco, on July 9th and 12th.

BISS Entertainment (B.E.) was founded by Pamela Gerstein in early 2009 to provide a resource for artists and those that seek the services of the artists. After doing freelance production work for the former BGP, among others, Pamela’s real entrée into the local music scene was through BISSList, her weekly e-mail listing of not-to-be-missed shows and events in the Bay Area and beyond, featuring both local artists and nationally touring acts. Originally launched in 2003 as an informal ‘heads-up’ to friends about upcoming performances, BISSList grew virally and quickly gained a wider readership, currently numbering more than 1,300 subscribers.

Similarly, B.E. grew out of Pamela’s passion for live music, her experience in concert promotion and event planning, but most of all through the relationships that she developed with the artists and venues that she featured in BISSList. As her relationship with the musicians featured in BISSList matured they frequently asked her if she could help them out with booking and other management duties, which she eventually did -- first with the Monophonics and currently with Eric McFadden and the Eric McFadden Trio. In this role, B.E. provides its artists with everything they need -- from booking and online content management to tour planning and much more.

B.E. strives to be a ‘one-stop-shop’ for all members of the entertainment ecosystem, providing access to the widest array of musical styles and genres, as featured on the B.E. artist roster. By providing such a broad range of artists under one roof, B.E. makes it easy to incorporate live music to any event, or to book the right act for the right venue and audience. In this and other capacities, BISS Entertainment enjoys great synergies between the promotional vehicle that is BISSList and its other managerial offerings. In the future B.E. plans to offer additional services, including: full-service booking, merchandizing and inventory management, and other promotional services.

B.E. also benefits from Pamela’s relationships with some of the leading players in the Bay Area music scene, many of whom are on BISS Entertainment’s Board of Advisors and Board of Directors, providing BISS Entertainment with solid advice, firm financial footing and a wealth of valuable relationships and knowledge of the industry. As B.E. continues to expand and grow in order to provide an even greater level of service to the community it serves it will also continue to seek out and entertain meaningful partnership and investment offers.

“We are delighted to announce the launch of,” said Pamela Gerstein. “With this new online vehicle, we are now able to better serve and grow with the artist community that we have built BISS Entertainment around. The launch of represents the culmination of what we’ve been working towards since the first edition of BISSList was sent out back in 2003.”

Currently, B.E. provides the following services:

• Promotion – via listings on B.E.’s weekly e-mail newsletter, BISSList, announcements on social networking sites, through the B.E street team, and through good old-fashioned word-of-mouth

• Production – B.E is able to manage the entire music side of any event, from stage management to production

• Booking – B.E. offers experienced, relationship-based booking of bands for events, venues and festivals of all sizes and the BISS Entertainment logo was designed by Joe Conte of (, a full service interactive agency based in Sausalito, CA, specializing in high-end interactive Web design, video and film documentation and original content development.
