The Polish Ambassador coming to Tahoe City’s LAKESIDE

The Polish Ambassador shows are not about pounding your body into submission. For The Polish Ambassador project, born on the streets of Chicago and San Francisco, infectious melody is paramount. However, this never overshadows the depth and harmonic complexity that have made the Ambassador a favorite amongst festival aficionados worldwide. Warm, analogue dreamwave; mind-altering glitch; world-infused groove; bass-fueled breaks; sexified downtempo; electric lullabies; and psy-fi funk are just a few of the genres that have poured from the Ambassador’s soul into earbuds and ghetto-blasters across the galaxy.

Wick-it the Instigator has a reputation for fresh and mind-blowing remixes beyond just dubstep and mash-ups. In a live setting he gets people moving with his humorous pop culture samples over beats rooted in hip hop and electronic bass. Then there’s Barisone, the critically acclaimed Portland DJ known for putting his original spin on hip hop-centered dance tracks with his own loops, layers, and edits.

Saturday January 26th these incredible DJs will perform alongside Tahoe’s own Gurbtron at Tahoe City’s Lakeside.  Tickets for this shows are $15 in advance or $20 at the door and are available at Lakeside Melting Pot World Emporium (Reno), New Moon Natural Foods Truckee and Tahoe City, Mad About Music (South Lake Tahoe), or online at www.www.freshbakin.com To prepare yourself download the Ambassador’s 9 album, 30 remix discography for free at thepolishambassador.com

More Firepower to 1 UP

December 7, 2012

Since we are heading into a big winter in a venue that had previously been a late
night location, I’m going to give everyone a little heads up about our upcoming gigs
at 1Up, located at 214 W Commercial Row.
214 W Commercial Row is a great space, no matter what the name on the outside
reads. It’s a really fantastic size for our type of shows. We can be loud. We can go
late. Drinks aren’t expensive. Be nice to the staff and they’ll be nice back. No one
ever told us what to book, what to charge or how to program our events. You can sit
down on the perimeter or you can get in the thick of it in front of the stage. It has an
actual backstage area. All the staff and security are good to us. These are all aspects
that make it ideal from a production standpoint. There are not many places like it in
the US…we (as a city) are lucky to have a place like this.

When it was WüRK a lot of amazing shows happened there. WüRK was an
interesting place as it turned into the downtown late night spot and people from all
the bars ended up there starting at 2am. It got to be kind of a habit to start putting
our headliners on at 2am. The problem with that format is it alienates a large
portion of fans who can’t or don’t want to stay out that late. We learned however
that if it’s a really well-known act, we can still pack the place by midnight, so…is it
necessary to really put on headliners at 2am? We don’t think so anymore.

So let it be known (is this a DECREE?), unless it is billed as an “afterparty,” expect
the headlining acts performing at 1Up to start their sets between 11:00pm-1am.
We’ll still have support acts after they finish for those who want to keep it going
(it is Nevada with no last call so obviously let’s keep rocking). Basically…for the
comfort and vibe of the audience, venue and artists, we’d rather have the room 2/
3 full with people who are there for the music, than a sold-out room ½-filled with
people oblivious to the awesomeness onstage.

Black and White Superball For Immediate Release North Lake Tahoe PRESS The Bounce Uncategorized

6th Annual Black and White Superball

November 20, 2012
Fresh Bakin’ and The Bounce present the Sixth Annual Black and White Super Ball in Crystal Bay, Nevada
The Cal Neva Resort to host multiple international and local music acts, including Tipper, Pimps of Joytime, and Fort Knox Five for North Lake Tahoe’s biggest New Year’s Eve event tradition.Fans of Fresh Bakin’ events, The Bounce Festival, and Bounce-O-Ween should already have their calendars marked for the Sixth Annual Black and White Superball at the Cal Neva Resort in Crystal Bay, Nevada this New Year’s Eve. Featuring styles ranging from heavy bass to funky grooves, eighteen musical acts are set to perform on three different stages, including international superstars Tipper, The Pimps of Joytime, and Fort Knox Five. Also included in this year’s lineup are West Coast and local favorites Love and Light, Vokab Kompany, Zeb Early, Coop Da Loop, Micah J, Bim Tim, and Motorhome.“We’re very excited that the Cal Neva is not only hosting us, but letting us have a complete musical take-over of the resort,” says Fresh Bakin’ producer Steve Emmerich. “It’s only here at this unique venue that we can bring you multiple rooms of dynamic music under one roof. Just like our Bounce Festival, we are bringing together acts and regional production teams that give this event an all out community and festival feel.”Headlining the evening is British composer and producer TIPPER, world renowned for performing from his extensive catalog of unreleased breakbeats, hip-hop, and glitch music while scratching his own sounds live. Also at the top of the bill is Brooklyn based, five-piece funk band THE PIMPS OF JOYTIME, who fuse infectious groove lines, afrobeats, salsa, rock and roll, and electronic music to create unforgettable music that fast-forwards a seventies sound into the new millennium. Additionally, DC based FORT KNOX FIVE, a leading force in the international funk and breaks scene will once again bring their fusion funk, reggae, hip hop beats and breaks to ring in the New Year.

Adding to the intensely diverse musical line-up are local favorites LOVE AND LIGHT, who will perform original glitch-hop, dubstep, and “lazer-crunk” electronica from their chart topping albums Galactic Booty Activation and Level Up, and live act VOKAB KOMPANY, a seven piece hip hop act from San Diego known for their collaborations with the likes of Cage the Elephant, Wu Tang, and Random Rab.

The Bounce, Fresh Bakin’s production partner, has assembled teams that will transform this classic venue into an ethereal journey, winding through elevated black and white spectacles, and guiding each participant freely through the changing of the calendar into 2013. Highlights include the metamorphosis of the hotel lobby into a vibrant dance area with Bounce staging and Second Dawn Lighting, music thumping away with local Meyer masters, Soulstice Sound. Also, Double D Productions, Rage Stage, Wobble Factory, and  Lite Brite Productions are on deck to execute extraordinary sound and lighting stage production.

Fresh Bakin’ has made certain that whatever your musical leanings, the Black and White Superball will be the New Year’s gathering to get the Tahoe masses dancing.

Tickets for this 21+ event are $60 in advance or $70 at the door. VIP tables are available for advance purchase. Purchase tickets at The Cal Neva Front Desk, New Moon Natural Foods (Tahoe City and Truckee), Mad About Music (South Lake Tahoe), The Melting Pot World Emporium (Reno) and online at www.www.freshbakin.com.

Hi all….welcome to the first blog post I’ve ever written in my life….I actually am
going to stop for a second and google “how to write an effective blog” while listening
to MC 900 Foot Jesus. Be back soon….

Something I learned from my short amount of research on blogging is keeping posts
short…which is encouraging (no five paragraph essays in APA style will be coming
your way). The blogs are basically going to start by explaining a little bit about what
we are about, updates, opinions and answer any questions you may have (feel free
to submit).
