Grand Entertainment & Music, Inc. Announces Preproduction of Qbanito's Second French Album

MONTREAL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 10, 2007 -- Grand Entertainment & Music, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GMSC) is pleased to announce that Qbanito is back in the studios to record his second French album.

Qbanito has begun to work on his much anticipated second album, the follow up to his debut "Partir." Once again, Qbanito will be working along side of famed producer Jesus "El Niño" Perez on this project. All of the music demos have been completed, and the artist is now in the studios recording. The new album will have the same style and emotion as "Partir," adding a blend of African beats and more traditional Cuban rhythms to give this album a different flavor. Last week, Qbanito completed photo shoots for the album cover and promotional materials. Grand Entertainment, in conjunction with TOX Records Canada, is planning to release the album in April. The company is looking to have the album in stores this spring, in time to book a promotional summer tour.

"I am pleased to see Qbanito back in the studios and hard at work on this follow up album," stated President, Fred Berlin. "I am certain that his fans are going to love this album as much, if not more than 'Partir.' So far production and recording has gone well, so I do anticipate a spring time release. After hearing the demo tracks, I must say that I am very excited to get this follow up album released."
