Grand Entertainment & Music, Inc. Offers Update on North American Tour

MONTREAL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 7, 2006 -- Grand Entertainment & Music, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GMSC) offers update on the company's artist Qbanito and his recently launched North American tour.

Qbanito recently kicked off this tour in June and has already seen strong ticket sales and impressive fan turnout. The tour is currently focusing on the Francophone markets in Canada, where the artist has already played fourteen dates in front of audiences as large as 20,000. Most of these dates have involved completely choreographed performances including dancers and large live bands. He has sold out numerous venues and is scheduled to play throughout Canada until the end of September. The tour is then scheduled to move to the United States to coincide with the official release of the artist's Spanish album. Grand Entertainment is currently in talks with several venues and planning dates in Miami, Chicago, and New York. More details will be released as dates are solidified.

Fred Berlin, President, stated, "One of the greatest influences on an artist's success is the support of their loyal fan base. Album sales, radio airplay, and merchandising all stems from how many people truly identify with an artist and his message. This is why I am very pleased with the turnout for the Qbanito shows." Berlin went on to say, "The Canadian audiences have been very receptive to the performances and I am sure that we will be able to build on this energy when we kick off the U.S. leg of the tour later on this year."
