“SCENE. NOT HEARD” These words exemplify the mission, challenge, and lifeblood of Silent Frisco. This San Francisco-based crew of sonic missionaries turns impossible public performance challenges into powerful outpourings of free expression. We use cutting edge technology to enable artistic, political and educational expression in locations where "noise" has previously made such action impractical or illegal.
We own more than 3000 two-channel, festival-optimized wireless headphones. Custom-designed and built from scratch, Silent Frisco headsets operate on two simultaneous, long-range feeds, providing the best in audio clarity, volume, and comfort. With this technology, and the creative and operational experience born of 17-years in the business, we enable the music to play while neighbors enjoy peace and quiet. Once one removes “noise” and “nuisance” from the equation, public gatherings can be seen for what they truly are: an unalienable civil right.
Founded and directed by the USA’s first Silent Disco DJ, Robbie “MoPo” Kowal, Silent Frisco is managed by SunsetSF, a 17-year-old Bay Area full-service production company. Our extensive concert & festival production, marketing, talent buying, operations and management experience are unmatched in Silent Disco. Others may have some “gear”, but no-one has the practical know-how and creativity borne of more than 1000 events produced. In 2012 alone, Silent Frisco activated over 100 days at concerts, after-hours, picnics, movie screenings and festivals. Our stable of in-house talent and deep relationships with the top agents and managers in the business give our clients a distinct head-start towards success. We have consistently blazed new trails leading the US silent disco community on its first national tours, and first activations in beaches, parks, and boats.
Among our 2012/2013 clients are Lincoln Center, MacWorld, Yahoo, Treasure Island Music Fest, L.A. County Museum of Art, Electric Forest, BottleRock Festival, Lightning in a Bottle, Gathering of the Vibes, Camp Bisco, Ghost Ship Halloween, High Sierra Music Festival, Hornings Hideout, and Sonic Bloom. Along with monthly residencies in L.A. and S.F.O. we have self-produced magical experiences in clubs and bars, beaches and boats, hilltops and rooftops, subways and skate-parks in 20 U.S. states. Our community includes 40,000+ registered emails and 7500+ fans and followers.
