Astoria, New York (PressExposure) June 16, 2011 -- MusicDish LLC, a digital media and marketing firm that publishes MusicDIsh*China, and UK-based C-Management have struck a collaborative partnership to expand their efforts in China and South East Asia. As part of the partnership, MusicDish will become a media sponsor for Goober Gun, supporting their touring and development in the region through its portals and networks.
"I've been following Goober Gun for the last six months as they've been touring Asia and developed a good relationship with C- Management's Mark Smutz Smith," said Eric de Fontenay. "Seeing them live in Singapore at Music Matters was the clincher."
MusicDish*China has sponsored some of China's major events, including its oldest and largest rock festival (Midi 2010-11), largest rock festival (INTRO 2010), Music Matters (2009-11) and China Sounds. This though will be its first media sponsorship of a band. In addition to PR and marketing support, MusicDish will also help expand the band's social media footprint in China.
"After working with Eric for some months now, we are delighted to announce our official partnership between Music Dish PR (SE. Asia) & C management (UK)," said C-Management's Mark Smutz Smith. "With our roster of top UK bands touring Asia in the past year, we were keen to find a PR agent that would be both creative, forward thinking and above all passionate about new music from the East & West. Having witnessed Music Dish professionalism and impact first hand, I am extremely excited about our joint future."
Under the partnership, MusicDish will also be tapping C-Management's expertise to help support its development of western bands in the region, including Houston-based PALE and Paris-based South Froggies. C- management has seen all four bands from its roster tour throughout Asia in the last 12 months, (Goober Gun, Melodramas, The Lost Souls Club & Will And The People).
Goober Gun are currently running their Asian Tour Part 2 this is the band's 4th and has taken them to Taiwan, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Singapore and Thailand.
With influences such as Def Leppard, Cheap Trick, The Wildhearts and Jimmy Eat World, Goober Gun craft slabs of anthemic rock, combined with a lyrical and musical depth that has won over audiences around the UK and beyond. It's this simple desire to entertain with style that has brought Goober Gun a superb fan and critical response, and win the BT Digital Music Search For Talent, as well as 'Best Band' at the Mag Awards. In the summer of 2009 Goober Gun recorded their new EP '1979'.
