Where has the summer gone BISS Listers? 

Well... My birthday is tomorrow and Burning Man starts this week so I know the summer is coming to an end...

Some of us have just barely recovered from having the FUNKIN BEST TIME at For The Funk Of It two weeks ago in Belden.  If you were in attendance, whether patron, artist, staff, vendor, or volunteer, you know you felt that unmistakable magical vibe from beginning to end.  

Special thanks to Bob & Spencer for continuing to produce this event for us every year! More special thanks to my own dear amazing & cohesive crew. That's Tracy, Spor, Kristin, Courtney, Liz, Chris, Erin, Theresa, Wil, Angela, Gabe, Violette, Tamura, Amy, Michael, & Christo. 

Speaking of cohesive crew, the entire staff was a well oiled machine and had some time to enjoy the festival this year. Sometimes even together! Well done Skye, Beth & Sarah, Jen, Tanner, Ninja, Darby, Tom & Mike. 

And while we are at it, thanks for the good times and the music to all the artists.. Big Sam's Funky Nation, Five Alarm Funk,The Nibblers, Vokab Kompany, Mojo Green with Hornmageddon, Ideateam, El Metate, Diggin' Dirt, City Of Trees Brass Band, Disiac, Smokey The Groove, Swoop Unit, Lovebush, Funk Exchange, Ten Foot Tiger, George Napp, Black Fong, Brooker D & The Mellow Fellows, Control-Z, Polyfunktion, Marshall House Project, Big Sticky Mess, Boca Do Rio, The Gold Souls, Jive Machine, Lo and Behold, Drinking With Clowns, Riff's Addicts, Chango, The Klown, & Galaxos Confunktion  

And we can't forget to thank the Belden staff, Cory & Dillon & Sharon & Amy & Jen & Frank & the owner, Ivan...

I know that was a lot but For The Funk Of It killed it this year and it deserves the praise! 

OHHHHH.... Did I forget to thank the firefighters? Gotta thank the firefighters for containing the fire just a few miles from the festival only two days before! Thank you!!

After all that, you know you wanna be at For The Funk of It next year, right?

Back in the bay, there have been a ton of shows and I know you have been to them all! Let's talk about the best of the BISS List coming up for this week and next....
