Macy’s fetes Asian Pacific heritage with Far East Movement shows



NEW YORK–Select Macy’s locations in the U.S. will honor the contributions of Asian-Pacific Americans to American culture and pop music by hosting the platinum-selling Far East Movement (FM) in performances and appearances in six markets across the country in commemoration of Asian Pacific Heritage Month.

“Asian-Pacific Americans have had an extraordinary impact on our nation, music and culture,” said Dineen Garcia, Macy’s vice-president of diversity strategies. “We are proud to partner with Far East Movement to celebrate these achievements with our Asian-Pacific American Heritage month events nationwide.”

Natives of Downtown Los Angeles, Cherrytree recording group Far East Movement (Kev Nish, Prohgress, J-Splif, and DJ Virman) embody the pulse of contemporary LA. They paid their dues at local clubs, expanding their fan base until they became city-wide stars in the wake of their first LA chart-topping pop hit, “Girls on the Dance Floor.”

Macy’s, the largest retail brand of Macy’s, Inc., delivers fashion and affordable luxury to customers at more than 800 locations in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam. For Macy’s media materials, images and contacts, please visit our online pressroom at www.macys.com/pressroom.

Each city will host a live Q&A session with FM followed by a live performance in the store. As part of Macy’s collaboration with FM, International Secret Agents (ISA) musical artists unique to each local market will also be performing with FM. ISA aims to empower and unite the Asian-American community, especially relating to the arts.

Following the performances, guests are welcome to shop the latest trends. The first 250 customers to make a purchase of $50 or more from the Junior’s or Young Men’s departments will receive the opportunity to get their picture taken with Far East Movement as well as a special gift with purchase (while supplies last and as time permits).
