There’s a little Hawaiian in my Blood

Posted in Chain Poi, Pictures, Shows with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 1, 2012 by jimmycush

Poi is a fire dance art originating from the New Zealand. Today it is used in many Pacific island shows, including Hawaiian. The Sandwich Islands (later Hawaii) became a US territory in 1898 but not a state until 1959! A piece of my family lived on those islands before they even became a territory! You would never know it by looking at me but I am in fact a little Hawaiian! OK, so that is true but I am only 128th Hawaiian. But on April 21st I had to summon all that 128th into a show!

Creekside Pines Senior Community was having a Hawaiian night for the residents. The weather was trying to put a damper on our parade but it held off  until right after the event! They had food, activities (including a pie toss- picture below), Hawaiian dancers and FIRE! They requested that I dress the part so. I took all that 128th and put into play and what a great show! The residents had their family and friends over and everyone enjoyed it.

When you want a party remembered you have to bring something that everyone will talk about and can’t stop talking about!  On April 21st Sorriso Productions put on a Fiery Night at Club Opera in Atlanta. Sorriso Productions specializes in bringing the Brazilian/Latin  party to the next level. That is exactly what they did!! The party was rocking  on the patio and Venetian room to the mix spun by  Dirty South. To  make the night a never forget, they asked me to come out and show the crown how hot it can get!

 

 

Fire and Ice at Berry College

A long time ago I attended college at Berry for 1 year, sense then I have been waiting on them to ask me back. On Feb. 17th they finally did… But they didn’t ask me to be a student but rather an entertainer! Berry College was having a Fire and Ice night and I was granted permission to heat things up a bit. The School grounds have changed greatly in the last 8 years but it still felt amazing going there to have some fun. They now have a water fall beside the Krannert center that acted as an amazing back drop for my show!

Here is look at the fun…

Rock the Runway is a fashion show that the proceeds go to help She Dances. She Dances is an organization that provides holistic restoration for innocent and forgotten young girls who have been trafficked and sexually exploited. The fashion show took place at the Sloss Furnace in Birmingham Alabama. The show was set to the pace of live music by Fly-By-Radio. The rock and roll theme only got better once the aerial silks were hung and the fire got lit. The night was a great success and everyone had fun!

I have always wondered how they make a music video. A few weeks ago I got to find out! Mollie and I were asked to perform in front of a green screen back drop. The music video will be released in a few weeks. Once it has I will have links to it and the artist. Until then take a look at the behind the scenes!

 

Not Just For Kids

Posted in Pictures, Shows with tags , , , , , , , , on November 3, 2011 by jimmycush

As a kid I thought that Halloween was a fun time of year. You dress up and get candy. When growing up I thought, “What do the grown ups do?” I never thought that sitting and waiting on kids was all that fun. But now older I think I have found the secret! Adults do enjoy to see the costumes and reminisce about when they were young, but the best part are the parties! I had the privilege to perform at a Super Hero party. Among the attendance was Bat Man, Robbin, Captain America, and Jesus!

Georgia Tech had a Homecoming Festival on Thursday October 20th. Every one was there; The different fraternities and clubs, but most importantly lots and lots of students. I was asked to come by and give them a few shows. The weather was great and they gave me plenty of room right in the middle where everyone could see!
