Foz: Foz Entertainment is a full service executive music production and event management promotion company, providing world-class event planning services to elite influencers and A-List artists. It’s also the parent company of Dezert Noize, a music recording studio in Gilbert Arizona.
The collaboration between WGHP and Foz Ent. came about via the universes’ magnetic pull. BiggVon is the Grammy producing CEO of WGHP. We initially met at the 2019 Grammy Awards, as his company was looking for an executive producer and I was seeking an amazing R&B artist. I was introduced to BiggVon while collaborating with two of his newest and highly sought after R&B artists: Andrew Peckat and Lyriq (Sean Matthew).
After the four of us forged a phenomenal bond, we spent a week in Arizona together to ensure we had good chemistry as a team. Expectations were exceeded and we are now collaborating to shine a brighter light on stars, such as Ice Cube.
In addition to Ice Cube’s meet and greet, what other type of events do you produce?
Foz: We tailor each unique event to match the specific needs of our client. The type of events we produce include, but are not limited to: private mansion parties, large tailgates parties for 1500+ people and more. We also provide a venue selection service for top tier talent to perform at concerts and festivals.
How did you come up with the idea to have Ice Cube host a meet and greet ahead of the season opener?
BiggVon: The meet and greet is an opportunity for patrons to interact and mingle with the entertainment mogul, Ice Cube. The focus of the meet and greet is to promote Ice Cube and the BIG3 basketball league with a tip-off party, before the BIG3 basketball season opener this coming Saturday in Detroit at Little Caesars Arena.
