Looking for a band to donate their time and energy to The Berkeley Free Clinic's 50th anniversary celebration in August to be held in Live Oak Park. They are a nonprofit, so the budget is limited (or nonexistent). Please feel free to message me with any interest. The planing committee will vote on the bands that are presented to them.
Just for clarity...this would be a donation of your bands time to a very good cause. It would be wonderful exposure!
Check out what the Berkeley Free Clinic does for the community...they are great!
Hello everyone! This is Mischa Ballard, owner of Moondogg Productions and creator of the Berkeley Shakedown Street Festival. As many of you know, my life path has lead me away from the music industry. This was both a conscious choice and a result of the stress that comes with working in this industry. This was not a easy choice to make, but it is the right choice for me at this point.
As of today, I am stepping down as the owner and main driving force behind Moondogg Productions. This decision has filled me with mixed emotions, both sadness and relief.
The wonderful thing is that Moondogg Productions is not going away. Erica Albright has stepped up to take the reins to guide Moondogg Productions to success. She has a drive and a passion for music and art that is rivaled by a few. She already has been doing amazing work and has achieved more in a short time that I could have hoped for. Please welcome her with open arms and open hearts!
And thank you...🙏
Nothing left to do but 😊😊😊!!

One of the dear friends of the festival got wrongfully profiled in Utah for being a Deadhead.
He is now facing fines or worse. Him and his wife, and good friend Franklin, are three of the finest human beings you will ever meet on this green earth. Nick is also one of the most talented artist I have ever seen. If you can’t donate to the fund, consider buying an original piece of art from him.
