BISS 07.23.09 - Rebirth Brass Band @ Great American Music Hall / Manicato @ Mojito / Far West Fest in Pt. Reyes

Tonight, Thursday, I am starting with a crazy cable car adventure birthday celebration. Then possibly stopping at The Fillmore for De La Sol and finishing up the night with John Lee Hardee & Southern Exposure at the Boom Boom Room. (*WIN)

Friday night, I am heading over the bridge to San Rafael for some Eric McFadden Trio at the 4th Street Tavern. Though, I was torn about that versus Rebirth at the Great American Music Hall. Congrats to all the BISS List winners!! (JK, Daemon M, & Andrew D) I think we might still have a pair left so be quick if you wanna WIN!!

Saturday night, you have a second chance to see Rebirth at GAMH. (Congrats to JC, Sharon L, Dave P, & Valerie O.!!) For your Saturday late night, head to the Boom Boom Room for Monophonics!! (*WIN)

Something might be in the works for this Sunday. If you see me this weekend ask me about it!!!

BISS ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH OF BISSENTERTAINMENT.COM, A NEW ONLINE RESOURCE FOR ARTISTS, BOOKING AGENTS AND PROMOTERS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 08, 2009


BISS ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH OF BISSENTERTAINMENT.COM, A NEW ONLINE RESOURCE FOR ARTISTS, BOOKING AGENTS AND PROMOTERS

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 bissentertainment.com (http://www.bissentertainment.com), 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. For a current artist listing, please visit: www.bissentertainment.com/artists.html.

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 bissentertainment.com,” 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 Bissentertainment.com 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

Bissentertainment.com and the BISS Entertainment logo was designed by Joe Conte of Ola.tv (http://www.ola.tv/), a full service interactive agency based in Sausalito, CA, specializing in high-end interactive Web design, video and film documentation and original content development.

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

BISS Entertainment also announced today that four of its artists would be featured at the upcoming Giants County Fair, running from July 9-19, at AT&T Park on the Embarcadero in downtown San Francisco. On the opening day of the Fair (Thursday July 9th), B.E. will present Tracorum at 7:00 PM and Monophonics at 9:00 PM. On the first Sunday of the Fair (Sunday, July 12th) B.E. will present Bayonics at 12:00 Noon and Manicato at 3:30 PM. B.E. will also be providing MCs and DJs, including: Audio Angel, DJ Bizzi Wonda and DJ Senor Oz and Pleasuremaker, for multiple days of the fair.

According to a press release issued by The San Francisco Giants, “The San Francisco Giants are bringing all the games, food, music, and fun of a county fair to San Francisco, July 9-19, with the first ever Giants County Fair. The Giants County Fair will be located at McCovey Cove in Lot A and will feature over 20 carnival rides (including a ferris wheel, bumper cars, and a haunted mansion), midway games, carnival food, a "Giants Baseball Zone," and live music!

General Admission is $5 for adults, and kids 12 and under are free. Unlimited ride tickets are also available at $20 for adults and $15 for kids, making the Giants County Fair an affordable summer event for the entire family. For tickets and a full Giants County Fair schedule visit www.sfgiants.com/fair (Use Discount code: BISS) or call 1-800-225-2277. Tickets are on sale now.
