Eugene Irvin Kelly Jr. (Gene Buck) was born on November 18, 1987, in Atlantic City, New Jersey to Marivelle Nunez and Eugene Kelly, a strong and supportive family. At age 4, Gene started entertaining everyone in his neighborhood with his dance moves. Shortly thereafter his mom moved him to Las Vegas and he began writing his own music. His goal is to inspire and express his feelings through his hip-hop music.
He recently met at Digital Insight to sign a contract with Tina Moore, president of Rise Entertainment World, long time industry executives Harold
Green and Ed Contreras.
Tina Moore started her music career at the beginning of Motown Records where she met her late husband Pete Moore, a founding member of The Miracles. Tina’s specialty was marketing and promotion and working long hours. Her motivation for signing up Gene Buck is Pete who was her husband and best friend and his music which was based on love and joy.
Family, VIP guests and friends attended the signing of Gene Bucks contract at Digital Insight in Las Vegas. Attending was Rich Perez of the famous singing group The Nite Kings.
A private party followed the signing at the home of Marivelle Nunez and we all got a chance to spend time with Gene Buck and enjoyed a private hip-hop performance from Gene. He has a great style and I see a great future for him in hip-hop music.
