This has been a long time in the works, and I have been following their progress for quite a while, I am excited to announce that the boys and girls from Born To Perform, have, after two years finally born their first teen pop group called “The Buzz”.
Just in time for spring comes their very first song “Shake and Damce” and it’s a catchy ditty, that’s for sure!
Under the banner of “The Headlinerz” which is a platform to provide talented young artists who excel, further opportunities in the entertainment industry, the music being created will be by Teens who will now get the chance to record and produce original pop music aimed at other Teens and Tweens.
First up is the teen pop group sensation, The Buzz, consisting of 6 talented young performers – Jessica Driver, Caitlyn Thomson, Lisa Kriel, Philip Hanly, John Tsenoli and Dihan Schoeman.
They are a funky current Teen Pop group with incredible voices to match. In the past year since the creation of the band they have hit the ground running, performing at many corporate events the biggest being the Nickelodean Festival in front of 4000 people and Born To Perform at the Lyric Theatre.
Other events include On The Night at St Johns College, Microsoft product launch, a stadium event for Life Line and being invited to perform at industry stalwart Collett Dawson’s 25th Anniversary party amongst many industry and media VIPs.
The brain child of Matt Marinus and Gemma Donnelly Marinus they are excited about the way forward for these talented youngsters. Says Gemma: “Matthew and I recognised a huge gap in the music industry with regards to SA music being created for the Teen Pop market. Most of the music we hear from this genre is international so we are using our top music artists to create music and fill this gap. We are so excited about our first release Shake And Dance by The Buzz. This is only the beginning!”
