Wow! Here we are at the end of 2012 already! We have had many wonderful adventures, learning experiences and opportunities over this past year and have so much to be grateful for! We are excited to be celebrating Moon Coin Production's 10th Anniversary on January 30th 2013! We can't believe it's been 10 years already! We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of the agents, promoters and past clients for your support over the years. Your business is so appreciated, but more importantly are the relationships and friendships we have built with many of you. Thanks to you, we have been able to provide employment to dozens of musicians, dancers, singers and technicians over the past decade. Speaking of which... we are in awe of our amazing team of performers and technicians who contribute so much to making the shows the best they can be. They are really the spine of Moon Coin Productions and we couldn't do this without them. Lastly, a huge heartfelt thanks to our data base subscribers and the wonderful audience members who come out to the shows and show us such love and appreciation. Without you, there would be no show!
It has been another exciting couple of months since we last touched base, We were honoured to be a part of some very special events recently including Production Managing the Seed Event with Deepak Chopra at the PNE Forum (pictured below). CLICK HERE to view the 30 second time lapse video of the set-up for the event. Jeanette (President of Moon Coin Productions) had the priviledge of interviewing all of the speakers at the Seed Event, including Deepak Chopra. See a short excerpt from Jeanette's chat with Deepak here: http://youtu.be/V9ymvtUcunA
Another very special event we had the honour of Producing recently was The 12th Annual World Kindness Concert, which took place at the Centre in Vancouver For Performing Arts on Nov.16th (pictured below). It was a very uplifting and magical night and included performances by Bill Henderson (Chilliwack), Valdy, John Mann (Spirit of the West), Shari Ulrich, Bobby Bruce (AKA Nearly Neil) and many more! A definite highlight was Bill Henderson's performance of 'Baby Blue'. See all of the photos from the concert here:
On the 'Stage Shows' front...The RnB ICONS (our Motown show) quaked the Chateau Whistler for the BC Ready Mix Party! (pictured below) See more photos here,
The Retro Diva's helped CIBC shake their Groove thang at the New Vancouver Convention Centre and ABRA Cadabra had a great run of shows for the Potter's Breast Cancer Fundraiser (pictured below), a private party at the Hyatt Regency and the Indulge Gala at the Westin Resort in Whistler! CLICK HERE to visit the ABRA Cadabra Photo Gallery to see all of the shots.
'Sway' brought the house down at the Gala of Light at the Guildford Sheraton on November 17th (pictured below). The audience had a great time dancing and singing along to the biggest hits of Michael Buble', Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Van Morrison and more! The night was captured on camera, so be sure to check out the video on the 'Sway' web-site to see how much the lead performer, Adam Lucas looks and sounds like Michael Buble'!
The Piano Man had two successful shows at the Odeon Theatre in Saskatoon on Dec 14th and 15th. Although the climate was cold, the people of Saskatoon were so warm and welcoming. The lead performer Ryan Langevin (as Elton John & Billy Joel) was happy to ablige the enthusiastic audience with 4 encores!
On the Horizon...
ABRA Cadabra is looking forward to connecting with the Korean Community at the Surrey Golf Club on Dec. 20th, then performing at Country Meadows in Richmond for New Year's Eve. Sway is looking forward to performing at the 'Special Event' at McCormick Place in Chicago in January and at the Diamond Ball Gala at the Firefighters Club in Burnaby on February 23rd. The Piano Man will be doing a public Valentines Day show at the Rainbow Country Inn in Chilliwack on February 14th and thanks to the generous support of Coast Capital Savings, Kindness ROCKS will be coming to Richmond, Burnaby and Coquitlam as a lead up to Anti-bullying Day on February 27th.
We hope you all have a wonderful Holiday Season! Thanks for your continued interest and support! We look forward to seeing you at one of our up-coming shows!
All the very best for 2013!
Jonas and Jeanette
