"We are believers in possibility. When we compose our music, we think of the vast world we've seen, and dream of the limitless universe and the creations we add to it."
The result of Z's mixed genres and modalities comes Galaxy Music, a statement alluding to their mission to be the first band to play in outer space.
Z is well on that path, scoring big gigs along the way: aside from being Nas' live counterpart, the band also appeared on the rapper's "Untitled" studio album; they have been featured on the Late Show with David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel Live with NaS, Kanye West, Keri Hilson, and Lil' Wayne; they've performed with Lauren Hill, Jay-Z, Scarface, Pete Rock, Mario, Kenny Lattimore and Chante Moore in shows globally.

The Illusionists [ http://www.theillusionistslive.com ]
Direct from a completely sold out season at the Sydney Opera house in Australia, where the show sold over 3
million dollars of tickets in 8 days, William Morris Endeavour presents the most important live magic show currently touring the World, “The Illusionists”.
Seven of the most incredible illusionists on earth enact mind bending acts of magic and Illusion, many of which have never been seen before. Each Illusionist is a master in their own field. With an assembled cast of 20 sidekicks, they will perform a powerful mix of their most outrageous and unbelievable acts. Collectively, these performers have been seen by millions of people around the World and this production showcases their incredible talents together on stage for the very first time.
Audiences will witness jaw dropping acts of grand illusion, levitation, mind-reading, disappearance and for the first time ever in history, a full view water torture escape. Performed by the acclaimed escapologist Andrew Basso, he will hold his breath for over 4 minutes whilst attempting to escape from his underwater cell. This group of world-class performers take their cue from the showmanship of the great illusionists of the past - such as Harry Houdini – and pair it with a new and updated contemporary aesthetic, whose set and costume design lend the genre a theatricality and artistry that has rarely been seen before.
