Biss List Silver Ball Holiday Party – The New Up, bernadette, Crackerjack Highway, M80 Mailbox and DJ Jack Frost at The Independent

Biss Entertainment lights up The Independent and starts December right with the Silver Ball Holiday Party! Gleaming performances by The New Up, bernadette, Crackerjack Highway, M80 Mailbox (featuring Dave Brogan of ALO and Josh Clark of Tea Leaf Green), plus DJ Jack Frost spinning between sets.

Crackerjack Highway started the night off and got us all in the mood to party. The New Up showcased the music and stage presence which got them titled a Best Bay Area Breakout Band by MTV2. Bernadette reminded us why she shares the main stages around San Francisco with some of the areas most talented musicians. And to close out the event, M80 Mailbox rocked the house – the likes of bands we haven’t seen since Nirvana.

Great early holiday time was had by all. Pamela Gerstein and all of the organizers at Biss deserve a huge round of applause for organizing such a successful event, which donated a portion of proceeds to the Blue Bear School of Music – helping them continue their 39 years of music education!

Special thanks to *bernadette* for inviting me to photograph the evening 🙂
