Silent Frisco @ Midsummer Night Swing in NYC

July 11, 2013 @ 6:30 pm

Silent Frisco is a crew of San Francisco sonic missionaries dedicated to turning impossible situations into musical magic. We specialize in enabling performances in public spaces where ‘noise’ has previously made such performances impractical or illegal. By using our custom ‘Silent Frisco’ wireless headphones, the music can play while neighbors enjoy peace and quiet. Once one removes ‘noise’ from the equation, public music gatherings can be seen for what they truly are: an unalienable civil right.

We are based in San Francisco but have traveled far and wide to bring this unique performance technology to happy listeners. Among the events that either Silent Frisco, or our founder Robbie ‘MoPo’ Kowal have performed at are Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, Treasure Island Music Festival, Electric Forest, Camp Bisco, Earthdance, Harmony Festival, Gathering of the Vibes, Sea of Dreams NYE, and Ghost Ship Halloween. We’ve put music on Ocean Beach in San Francisco, Miami Beach in Florida, and Town Beach in Bridgeport Connecticut. We helped to revive legendary outdoor artspaces the Silo in Houston and Austin Enchanted Forest. In 2010, Silent Frisco conceieved and executed the ‘Silent Soundclash Tour’ the nation’s first Silent Disco club tour. Show us a place where ‘music Is not allowed’ and we will show you how to get make it happen.Feel love, as the Losers Lounge takes on disco and the hot stuff of Donna Summer and other mirror-ball era divas. Powered by ace session keyboardist Joe McGinty and his crack team of pop tributeers, Losers Lounge will hustle and boogie through the best of the ‘70s club scene. The Last Dance will happen with headphones on, as the Freedom Dance Party DJs spin during an after-hours silent disco.
