Happy Birthday to ME!!
**it's actually tomorrow 8/23**

And Happy Birth Day to the NEW & IMPROVED more interactive BISS LIST WEBSITE!! It was designed, developed, & created by my friend and yours, Josh Peerless of Peerless Consulting (with a little input from yours truly, Miss BISS)! THANK YOU JOSH! I look forward to continuing to mind meld as we take over the world!

Yes, that's right! The new BISS List web site is here!  You can still find all the "Best of the BISS" as well as Featured Shows plus the BISS Calendar of Recommended shows that you have always looked for on The BISS List.

We know how much you LOVE BISS.  And we know WHY you LOVE BISS!! Altogether now...  

B.ecause I. S.aid S.o!!

Obviously, not just  B.ecause I. S.aid S.o, but also because we are the BEST resource in the Bay for all the music YOU care about in FUNK and JAM (and a little of everything else)!  BISS List always has been and always will be a completely biased news source!

Thank you all for your continued support of B*I*S*S!!  And thank you for your patience while we got this together!

Now, on to all my THANK YOU'S to For The Funk Of It Music Festival!

I have been trying (for almost a week now) to come up with the perfect words to express exactly how magical and special the experience is to be a part of  For The Funk Of It music festival. Then I realized that anyone who has been there knows all of this but still I must take a moment to recognize. We all come together as a community to make this beautiful event what it is. It really can't be capt ured by words but here I am trying. 

This year was next level. Absolutely next level. Thank you to all the bands who funked it up all weekend: BoaBrooker D and the Mellow FellowsCity of Trees Brass BandFive Alarm Funk,Fourth PositionGeorge Napp,, GNARPHUNK,Groove MotherHayez, Hoopty, Hop SauceLo & BeholdLovebushMatador Soul SoundsMaxwell FriedmanMojo Green with Hornmageddon, Moody CatObject HeavyDJ RickshawRigmaroleSal's Greenhouse, DJ Silky Senor, Smokey The Groove,Soul ScratchSun Hop FatTen Foot TigerThe AscendersThe Gold SoulsThe Midnight Dip, UYES, & ZjitZjo! The music was endlessly funktastic. 

Everyone's hearts were so full of love that they overflowed into the wedding of Heather Vice &George Brahler. (Congrats you crazy kids!) Thank you two for sharing your love with all and honoring me with the job of flower-girl.
