Far East Movement
An influential group in the rising Asian American music scene, The Far*East Movement (FM) was formed by emcees: Kev Nish (Kevin Nishimura), Prohgress (James Roh), and J-Splif (Jae Choung). The three childhood friends found their love for music fresh out of high school and created recognition for the group in the Los Angeles underground scene through energetic live shows and a strong Internet presence. In 2003, FM produced their own large-scale hip hop show in Koreatown called “Movementality”, to benefit a local drug rehabilitation center. Through this event they were discovered by international club/ events promoter, Carl Choi, who shared the vision of strengthening the identity of Asian Americans in the entertainment industy, helping the Far*East Movement achieve global notoriety.
The group released their first mixtape, the “AudioBio” in 2005, distributing over 20,000 copies independently. The compilation, which is an introduction into the world of the FM, includes guest appearances from artists such as DJ Honda and Jin the Emcee. The “Audio Bio” opened the door for FM into television media, gaining them features on the Si TV Network, the AZN TV Network, UPN, and the show ‘Crime Scene Investigation’ (C.S.I.). In the summer of 2005 the trio embarked on their first world tour, performing in cities such as Seattle, Houston, San Francisco, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Singapore. At the present time, The Far*East Movement continues on its rigorous show schedule while also adding the finishing touches to their debut album, which is slated for release in the first quarter of 2006.
LMFAO emerged in 2008 as the Kings of Party Rock. This electro-pop duo consists of uncle, Stefan Kendal Gordy, and nephew, Skyler Husten Gordy. With Barry Gordy as your father and grandfather, respectively, you know that music is running through your veins. They debuted their sound in 2008 with their first single, "I'm In Miami", which became that year's summer party anthem. In 2008 LMFAO embarked on a summer club tour to promote their pulsating singles. The hits kept on coming and their debut album, Party Rock, debuted at #2 on the Billboard US Dance chart and also featured the drinking anthem, "Shots". For the album, LMFAO was nominated for a Grammy for Best Dance Album.
In 2010, they remerged as the featured act on David Guetta's summer anthem "Gettin' Over You" which also featured Fergie on the hook. They recorded their sophomore album, Sorry For Party Rocking, which featured the recent #1 single "Party Rock Anthem" and solidified themselves as the clubs go-to hit makers. In 2011, LMFAO embarked on an Asian tour with scheduled tour dates in Singapore, Manila, Taipei, and Kuala Lumpur. For 2011, LMFAO tour dates are scheduled across the US to promote their US tour and their new clothing line, Party Rock. LMFAO is producing the summer's hottest music. Don't miss a chance to catch these party-boys out on tour this summer, 2011. Use Eventful as your source for LMFAO tour dates and concert schedule information.
Before becoming MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew, Season 3, Quest Crewuest Crew’s energy and charisma captured the attention of audiences with their numerous crew and individual performances on American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance? On ABDC, they entertained their way into the homes and hearts of America, leading to a whirlwind of appearances this past year. Appearances include the motion picture The Squeakquel and dozens of coveted television, music video, and stage performances throughout the country. ABDC, Season 3 is now airing abroad and their popularity has already set them on course for appearances in Europe, Asia, and Australia. They continue to be amazed and thankful for their ever supportive and loyal fans.
Quest Crewuest Crew is a family of close friends with a common love for dance and the arts. Accomplished dancers, each with their own specialty and style, they bring to the stage a great mix of humor, musicality, high-flying and eye-popping tricks, innovative choreography, and personality that consistently brings audiences to their feet.
Giving back has always been an important part of Quest Crewuest Crew’s philosophy as evidenced by their support of several charitable events as well as their name; their way of thanking the Quest Crewuest Learning Center in Artesia, California for graciously giving them a home to train and polish their performance skills.
