Songwriter, Singer, Bassist… and Paintball Player
As a member of the Bee Gees, with world-wide record sales exceeding 110 million, Maurice Gibb enjoyed a place among the top five of the most successful recording artistes of all time, along with The
Beatles, Elvis, Michael Jackson and Sir Paul McCartney. The group wrote and produced six consecutive Number One singles in the United
States, while in Britain they wrote chart-topping hits in four consecutive decades. It was Maurice who provided them with the highest harmonies, and he was also an accomplished bassist, guitarist
and keyboards player. There are 918 compositions of the Bee Gees that we know of, many of those written by Maurice, and many of them performed by other artists.
Maurice, affectionately known to many as “Mo”, was the owner of Mo’s Paintball, a successful paintball business in Miami Beach, Florida.
Mo traveled with his team, “Royal Rat Rangers” to tournaments in the states, as well as in Europe. He was always the first to emphasize the greatness of our sport, to encourage safe and fair play and to
embrace the brotherhood which revolved around Paintball.
Now we are here, in his city, showing his friends and family how much we appreciate all that Maurice has done for the sport of Paintball.
We ask you to join us in giving something back to Maurice and his family.
The Bee Gees -- Maurice, Robin and their older brother Barry -- have lived in South Florida since the late 1970s. Their younger brother, Andy, who had a successful solo career, died in 1988 at age 30 from a heart ailment.
In order to honor the memory of Maurice Gibb as well as Andy Gibb and their extensive charity work, The Gibb Family and The Andy Gibb Memorial Foundation have announced that The Andy Gibb Memorial Foundation will now be known as THE GIBB FAMILY FOUNDATION. In addition to the charities that benefit from The Andy Gibb Memorial Foundation, The Gibb Family Foundation also supports many of the various charities that Maurice supported.
The NPPL and Pure Promotions will be raising money for the family’s foundation through a raffle to be held at the Commander’s Cup in Miami, Florida November 7 – 9. If you would like to donate an item to be included in the raffle, please contact
firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets will be
on sale on www.nppl.tv and at the Commander’s Cup for $10 each.
Please make checks payable to “The Gibb Family Foundation” and mail
