BISS 03.15.18 : GREYBOY ALLSTARS+MIKE DILLON / ROGER DALTREY / ALO / DJ WILLIAMS' SHOTS FIRED / GEORGE CLINTON / BUDDY GUY // NXT WK: FOR THE FUNK OF IT PRESENTS SMOKEY THE GROOVE

Hey Bay Area Music Freaks! I am so excited about this upcoming show that I am gonna kick this week's BISS off telling you about it. Mark your calendar and do not miss it!! The line up alone should be enough to convince you! Matador Soul Sounds is playing at Great American Music Hall on Monday, 3/26. The band features Eddie Roberts (The New Mastersounds) and Alan Evans(Soulive) their fierce cuadrilla consists of keyboardist Chris Spies and bassist Kevin Scott (Jimmy Herring) as the band's "banderilleros". Adding a feminine energy to the band are Adryon de León and Kimberly Dawson(Pimps of Joytime) on vocals. 

***YES! You CAN WIN TICKETS from BISS List! All ya gotta do to enter, is spread the word about the show by sharing this event with all your friends. Share it here on Facebook, share on Twitter or Instagram or Snapchat or all of the above. Be creative. Then email us to let us know when and where you've shared... Frequency and details count for bonus points!
You already know most of what I am about to tell you for my musical plans of this week because I told you all about it last week (with a little help from my lovely assistant, Spor). By the end of this weekend, I have no doubt that I will probably see just about every one of you at one of these shows.
Tonight, Thursday, 3/15, won't disappoint! Approaching their 25th anniversary, The Greyboy Allstars kick off the first of two nights at Great American Music Hall. Expect a sea of thrilled dancing fans in this romantic old dance hall from 1907.  Mike Dillon Band will be opening both nights and his current lineup helps him explore the connection between New Orleans street beats, ska, funk, hardcore and jazz. Dillon will be touring in support of his latest release, Functioning Broke. (WIN).
Across the bay in Oakland, Roger Daltrey will be playing with members of The Who's touring band at the fabulous Fox Theater. The setlist promises to include The Who hits, rarities and solo hits. Show opener Leslie Mendelson was unwittingly adopted into the West Coast jam scene after Bob Weir heard her and recruited her to perform with her. This resulted in the two recording a duet of Roy Orbison's "Blue Bayou".
On Friday, in case you missed it, night two of The Greyboy Allstars plus Mike Dillon Band will hit the stage at Great American Music Hall. This is a special tour and expect it to be packed!
Happy Birthday Lisa C!
Then, follow us over to the Boom Boom Room for DJ WILLIAMS' SHOTS FIRED (ft. mbrs of Greyboy Allstars//Karl Denson's Tiny Universe) plus BEN MISTERKA + COLLECTIVITY, DJ Kevvy Kev). What a lineup of the best of the best! (WIN)
Also, on Friday, ALO begins a two-day, three show stint at the Fillmore. This quartet of nearly two decades is on the heels of their new "Tangle of Time" album. Friday's show opens with "Modern day troubadour" John Craigie (WIN)
#wecandoitall
Another show not to be missed on Friday is DJ DIALS & 1015 FOLSOM PRESENT GEORGE CLINTON plus ODDISEE (LIVE) - THE SUPERPARTY AT 1015 FOLSOM WITH SPECIAL GUESTS!
Saturday continues the Fillmore stint for ALO. The 3pm matinee singalong for kids should be a blast for fans of all ages while their 9pm evening show will open with New York rock-fusion Tauk, another favorite of BISS!
Happy Birthday Jules!
With Sunday, comes one of the greatest live guitarist, Buddy Guy, who will be headlining at Luther Burbank Center For the Arts.
#nevermissasundayshow
However, I have just been informed that we have other plans for Sunday...
We are going to the East Bay for Mozart Requiem at Hofmann Theatre Presented by California Symphony @ 4:00pm
WHAT'S INTERESTING ABOUT THIS CONCERT? Two conductors take the podium at this concert as we welcome to the stage the San Francisco Conservatory Chorus, led by Ragnar Bohlin. The first half of the program features works selected by Bohlin, and the second half is a Mozart masterpiece, the Requiem for full orchestra and choir. Mozart died in 1791, leaving the requiem unfinished; it was completed the following year by Mozart's  colleague Franz Xaver Süssmayr.
Of course that's not all I want to tell you about we also have...
THE BEST OF THE BISS
