Japanese TV would like to hire you

Hello GI buskers, below is the letter I received from Sean Mukai of Japanese TV.
If interested in the gig, please contact Sean directly at: media@wonderland-inc.com

“Hello,

I am writing on behalf of a Japanese TV production company wishing to showcase some of the local street performance talent when they visit Vancouver at the end of the month.

The filming will be for a Japanese TV special titled “Datsuryoku Times Kurios”, which will air on the Fuji Television network. The crew will be visiting Vancouver in the final week of this month to feature the Cirque du Soleil production “Kurios”. The episode will be supplemented by attractions around Vancouver. The producers would like to include some local street performers to tie in with their Cirque du Soleil feature.

We wanted to see if you could connect us to some local street performers that we could film with our reporters from Japan. We will most certainly compensate them for their time.
We would prefer if they were more of a circus act rather than musicians.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely,
Sean Mukai”

Canada 150 event on July 1 – International drumming circle wants you!

Dear GI performers,

My name is Maria and I am writing on behalf of the Canada 150 Atlantic to Pacific Drumming Celebration organizing committee.
On July 1st, a countrywide drumming celebration known as the Canada 150 Atlantic to Pacific Celebration (www.canada150drumming.com) will celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation and the success of Canadian multiculturalism.

Through eight regions including Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Regina, Calgary and Vancouver, drummers will come together to drum simultaneously on July 1st.  This celebration will celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday and hopefully, set a Guinness World Record for “Most Nationalities in a Drum Circle” of a recognized orchestral piece of music lasting at least five minutes.

A federal non-profit organization, The Legacy 150 Celebrations Society, took initiative in organizing this special event.

I am writing to ask for your support with this exciting national initiative. Since this world record will be based on the number of nationalities participating, we are looking for many multicultural drummers to partake in this event. 

Please contact me if you are interested in participating!
We are dedicated to having as many cultures as possible participate in our community event!

Thank you,

Maria
