DescriptionNickel Bag of Funk: Dancehall, Baile Funk, Hip Hop, House, Latin, Bhangra, Classic Funk, Breaks , 80's, and so much more...
NBF is drummer, Bri- Thai, and two DJ's, Jimmy Love and Duserock, when combined they create an open format triple team of unlimited music. Born in January of 2006, as a collective idea to let it get loose, funky, and have no set format grew with the collective of three music junkies.
Come and dance to songs you know and songs you should know, mixed by DJs who you might expect to see at the latest hot spot. But they're here, just enjoying themselves with NBF.
Dress down, bring sneakers, get goofy with your friends, and let the hipsters hole up at the cool new club of the week. We're in the Mission, filling the night with live drums, DJs, dance performances, and people looking for a laid back atmosphere and a funky full dancefloor!!
Rotating guests TBA including but not limited to, DJ’s Swingsett: ism records, M3: green gorilla, Tom Thump: kinky sweat, Melyss: sisters sf, Lady Ra: bwb.
DJ "Jimmy Love": A lover of world beats, funk and hip hop...JL has shored up with the likes of DJ Sep, J-Boogie, Soul Salaam, Cheb i Sabbah, Dj Tomas, DJ Dragonfly, Lady Ra, Dj Vanka, Maneesh The Twister, Janaka The Selekta, and shared the decks with Karsh Kale and State Of Bengal of the south Asian electronica movement.
Outside of DJ'ing - J Love's art has hung on plenty of walls, while painting live for the likes of Sony as well as the San Jose MOMA. A designer by day and an artist by night, he is dedicated to the love of positive expression!

In addition to his interest behind the decks, Duserock brings his musical influence to the dance act Drop Culture. Drop Culture has appeared on recordings for respected dance labels including Om Records, Y4K Distinctive Breaks, Terraform Records, Lo-Rise and Mixed Elements. They have been featured in Time Out NY, Rolling Stone, Spin, Maxim's Blender, Muzik, and BPM (As the 'Record of the Month'). Duserock and Drop Culture have received praise and support from industry giants like John Digweed, Paul van Dyk, Groove Armada and Pete Tong
(using Drop Culture for his Essential Selection).
Bri- Th: Started drumming 20 years ago at the tender age of 11. After playing in jazz band and allstate symphonic orchestra in high school, he attended Berkelee College of Music in Boston, MA, and also studied at Ithaca Music Conservatory in NY.

(including a stint with Muzz Skillings formally of Vernon Reid's
