BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 1.12.12 - Sweet Relief Benefit / Topaz & Left Coast Allstars / Roy Hargrove / David Lindley / The Wailers

All right BISS Listers, it is time to get back in the loop! Recovery time from NYE is over and this year is already packed full of great music! So let's get moving and grooving and dancing to the beat...

Tonight, I strongly recommend hitting up Slims for "Remembering Steve Block - He Lived For Music" Presented by A Benefit for Sweet Relief. Steve Block was a Bill Graham Presents bluecoat who worked as a roadie for the David Nelson Band, Zero, JGB and more. He didn't make lots of money, but he truly believed in rock and roll, and loved the music more than anything. He was a sweet and loving guy, and he died of a heart attack last year. And so musicians are gathering to celebrate his memory and raise money for a very good cause (Sweet Relief, which aids musicians with medical expenses.) The musicians for the evening include: David Nelson Band (David Nelson, Barry Sless, John Molo, Mookie Siegel & Pete Sears), Steve Block All-Stars (Melvin Seals, Stu Allen, Greg Anton, Robin Sylvester & special guests) AND Bay Area All-Star Jam (Patrick Campbell, Mark Karan, Peter Albin, Barry Flast, David Gans, Peter Harris, Inez Garcia, Bill Cutler, Joli Valenti, JC Flyer, Jessica Fierro, Pat Nevins, Jimmy Sanchez, Steve Farzan, Dore Coller, Willow van den Hoek, Joe New, Steve Shufton, David Perper, Mari Mack & Bill Laymon)

Friday & Saturday, I've got family in town so only hitting one show each night and that's Topaz & The Left Coast Allstars both nights featuring TOPAZ, BRIAN JORDAN (KDTU, Lauryn Hill), WIL BLADES (Stanton Moore III), ERIC MCFADDEN ( P-Funk), JAY LANE (Primus), JASON MUSCAT (Tainted Love) & more. These shows are sure to be smokin non-stop sonic extravaganzas of straight up booty shakin', live electric Afro-beat, funk'n Soul Jazz concoctions that will keep you on yo' feets with them sure-fire heavy beats!

I hear the rest of you are either on Jam Cruise or will be at The Great American Music Hall for David Lindley with Will Kimbrough or DEVO at The Filmore or maybe at Yoshi's for Roy Hargrove. (*Congrats to Wendy W. and Phil R.)And Sunday, how about the Wailers at The New Parish? Check out the contests below to *WIN TICKETS*!
