We have recently completed a number of ambitious projects for InterContinental Hotel properties in Jordan, Qatar, Dubai, Oman and Egypt. Our work has involved supplying the best solo performers, duos, club DJs, live bands and steel pan musicians to various outlets within the above properties, not to mention live entertainers for the ICH group's New Year events!
We are pleased to say that we remain partners with many International hotel chains, event companies and exclusive venues, all of whom continue to trust FUNKGURUS with their entertainment needs on an ongoing basis. A unique roster of some of the finest international live artists, performers and celebrities, makes FUNKGURUS the first choice when it comes to high quality entertainment services. Coupled with the fact that as qualified business managers and experienced performers our agents are able to deliver the best quality performers on time and in budget, they also understand the 'business' side industry and the standards expected.We look forward to making you a valued FUNKGURUS client.
Along with our French production and media partners, 'What a Wonderful World', we were very proud to produce HDTV clips for French TV production 'Les Champions des Champions de L'Equipe' - Sportsperson of the Year Awards Christmas show which was broadcast on 19th December from Paris.
Once again we were chosen by the regional Directors at the Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa, to take care of their complete entertainment needs for their 2013 New Years Eve Gala. We were pleased to supply the best live performers from Europe for this prestigious event, all of whom were immediately re-booked for the same event in 2014. Way to go.
We recently assisted new Asian Multimedia company ‘Citizen TV’ in their recruitment drive, by recruiting a TV Presenter & Producer to head up the music section of the project. Citizen TV is a new and exciting project that combines social networking, live media, YouTube, Facebook, iTunes and American Idol within one immense website. The project has ambitious expansion plans for Asia and the Far East and as such we were very excited to be involved in the initial stages of the project and delighted to have been chosen by the team to assist with their plans.
We recently participated in the filming of the new 'Booty Luv' music video, on behalf of leading International music production company 'The Industry Sound'. FUNKGURUS were asked to provide regional production support to the project, which consisted of providing film and audio equipment, extras and film locations. With many millions of record sales, hit films and multiple chart topping singles, 'The Industry Sound's collective credits include, Maroon 5, U2, J-Lo, Booty Luv, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears & Michael Jackson. Such organisational support is just one of the many services we are able to provide to music and media companies.
Our brief for the launch of the Kempinski Hotel Cairo Jazz Club was simple. 'Provide world-class jazz performers' for the launch events and 'the best European resident jazz, soul & blues performers' thereafter. We truly surpassed ourselves for the club launch by providing none other than premier FUNKGURUS RnB vocalist 'Crystal Petit-Night' from Atlanta, to perform alongside pianist June Bervine, guitarist Fred Petit and Saxophonist Craig Hume. The residencies were ably taken care of by British jazz pianist vocalist Nina Zagorski, who delighted hotel guests each evening at the ‘Floor 10’ jazz bar with the best International jazz, soul, blues & pop.
We were asked by Samih Sawiris to find 'the best live jazz musicians' for the VIP launch of his new Yacht Club - located within the new marina of presitgious Orascom Red Sea resort, El Gouna. In order to not dissapoint, we brought in none other than legendary FUNKGURUS Philadelphia musician/composer and PLATINUM selling producer - Junius Bervine famous for working with Prince, P Diddy, Snoop Dog, Lauryn Hill and Earth Wind & Fire to name but a few. June and his band entertained guests throughout the evening with rendidtions of the best jazz, soul and blues music - most of which he had either composed or played on during the recordings!
