JGeeks will perform their first show in America at BYU–Hawaii on Friday, May 17, in the Cannon Activities Center.
BYU–Hawaii Performance Series looks for wholesome entertainment that appeals to the student population. JGeeks, made up of three main members Jermaine, Eru, and Marino, incorporate modern twists on cultural Maori elements. They took second place on New Zealand’s Got Talent, increasing their popularity.
“A student approached Performance Series asking about having JGeeks perform here. We looked into it and contacted them,” said Briana Petersen, a Performance Series student worker and senior studying TESOL, from Japan. “They have been extremely helpful and are aware of the audience.”
