MONTREAL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 1, 2007 -- Grand Entertainment & Music, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GMSC) is pleased to announce Lost City artist, Big Lou, has four sold out showcase events this month.

Underground rap sensation Big Lou is the headlining artist for four major sold out showcases in the month of February. Big Lou will be performing throughout the tri-state area this month, including sold out shows at Club T-NY (February 6th), Remote Lounge (February 13th), Don Hills (February 15th), and Sons of Brazil Club (February 25th). These venues hold approximately 1500 people each. These showcases play host to a variety of influential individuals in the rap and music industry, such as major record label executives, DVD producers, local artists and industry magazine writers and critics. Also performing in the upcoming showcases are such well known artists as Jim Jones, G-Unit, and Papoose.

Big Lou's success continues to grow as more and more industry leaders are exposed to his musical talent.

Following the DVD release party, Big Lou had 6 interviews with various music and entertainment publications. This week alone, he is booked for 13 interviews, ending the week with a one hour live radio broadcast on New York's 91.9 FM.

"Big Lou's success is spreading like wildfire," stated Frank Urban, Big Lou's manager. "Even major artists in the rap industry are starting to take notice of Big Lou's talent. The freestyle collaboration with Busta Rhymes, the DVD release, the sold out shows, and all of the media interviews has resulted in a massive wave of exposure. Big Lou is well on his way to becoming a major success. His rapid rise in the industry is almost scary."
