Thank You 2011

2011 was such an amazing year for me and the Phukheadz. I would like to give thanks to all who have made this possible.

Thank you to The Loyal Order Of Phukheadz. Ann, Joe, Erin, Dan, my family, Kick It, Abducted Records, Stupid Fly Records, Muze Entertainment, Kinesis Productions, TSI and Vlad the Inhaler.

Thank you to all the promoters, publicists, managers and agents behind the scenes who constantly bust their ass and have been kind enough to answer and arrange my requests for the Phukhead presentations. Special thanks to Tim Hall (Jack Rabbits, Freebird Live and Blackwater), Danny Chasan (Creator Entertainment Agency and UMF), Ryan Emke (Crunchay Productions and Florida Music Blog), Glyn Morgan (Future Sound Of Breaks) and Luis Evans (Vizion 1 Entertainment).

It was great working with all the following artists and crew at 1000 (TSI - May 13): Farace, Kinesis, Dioptrics, Ginsu, Gizroc, Audrey!, DJ Hippy Joe, Qel-Droma, Combustible, Eyecon, 2 Junglists, Comic, Sneaker & The Dryer, House of Sun, Spectrum, Solkat, Beau Damion, The Toyman, The Manti, Ben Dobson, Joe Fuller, Jefferson Funk, Knotwell, Blood Shot, Joshua Binczak, DJ Aware, Ashley Farace, Laura Liebenow, Christa Carey, Guil Strabeli (9G’s), Too Much, Chico, Jmone, Kyle, Ryan Rummell, Jason Grimes and Jeff Randall.

Thanks to the many new artists and friends I’ve met along the way. Leo Kulishevskiy, Larry Scruggs, Mason Masters (Bangarang), Allux Reed, Ryan Gannon, Mark & Ashley, Human Factors Lab, Crissy Spiritwolf, Landon Hooks, Ishanna Ible, Ashley Strong (GVT), Will Bowers, Greenhouse Lounge and Wavefuctions.

We lost some members of The L.O.O.P. this year. I send all my love and support to the family and friends of Matthew “Gimpmode” Fox and Chris Rowland. R.I.P.

I also say goodbye to The Blue Room. I will forever be grateful for all the wonderful friends and artists I met there and for letting The Phukheadz have a stage and homebase for the first 5 years.

Here is to 2012 and the list of hopeful inductees into the L.O.O.P. Those targeted include Corey Glover of Living Colour, Gregg Allman, John Hefron, Ron White, Diplo, sleigh Bells, Adam Ant, Slick Rick, Big Daddy Kane, Biz Markie, Chubb Rock, Wynton Marsalis, Henry Rollins, Linda Hamilton, Stan Lee, Peter Mayhew, Brent Spiner and David Prowse. I’m sure this list will grow as tours are announced throughout the year.

Look for the celebration of Phuk the Politics VI on February 10th and hopefully some more of the state signs project (any travelers out there?).

I apologize to any I have left out. Take care, see you around and thank you for all the support. There would be no Loyal Order without you.

Much Love, Peace and Viva la Phukheadz - Byron
