Woodstock Festival 2012

Posted in Pictures, Shows with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 28, 2012 by jimmycush

One year ago I found out about the Woodstock Festival. They allowed me to perform there and we had a lot of fun that afternoon. Unfortunately it rained and my show was cut a bit short and with rain on the radar the crowds were not very large. However, I still managed to get some awesome pictures and the guest really seemed to enjoy the show!

This year was another story. I was contacted because my performance last year was a big hit. They asked if I would perform again. I ,of course, said yes! The crowds were bigger and the weather was beautiful. I was able to perform 3 full 15 minute sets! They had me perform like last year in front of Maxwell’s cigar bar and Yoguri. But the funny part is that I was also placed right beside the Woodstock Fire Department! They never were needed of course, and I was told that it was a coincidence but it made the safety speech in my show that much more funny. I think they enjoyed the show as much as everyone else!

Rock the Runway with Fire!

Posted in Pictures, Shows with tags , , , , , , , on November 17, 2011 by jimmycush

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!

Halloween is always a time to bring out some amazing costumes whether they are the sexiest or scariest! At Club Asylum in Macon they also brought in some fantastic entertainment. Energemata Poi was represented along with Riot Hopping!

Not Just For Kids

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!

All Boys Love Fire

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on October 26, 2011 by jimmycush

All Boys love fire. Some of us like it a bit more than others. I had the opportunity to perform for some like minded boys. The Boys Scouts are taught to respect fire and to use it in the wild. I myself am an Eagle Scout. I know first hand how much boy scouts like fire. That is why when I was asked to perform for them I knew they would enjoy it. When camping they use Colman fuel to power their stoves. Colman fuel is also what I use to fuel my props. In Boy Scouts you earn a Fireman Chit. This is a piece of paper that allows you to start and use fires. I gave the boys that night a full safety speech and then proceeded to show them 7 ways they could loose it!

As a reminded fire is awesome but please only practice it with the supervision of a professional.

A Glimpse of Charlotte

Saturday Jimmy Pyro, along with the Beautiful Mrs. Mollie, went to Charlotte NC to shoot a video and performed some fire around town. During our travels we encountered a fountain/ waterfall which provided some amazing photo background. The video is still in the works but with the amazing skill of Eric and John the result is sure to be pure genius.

Here are some of the pictures we captured:
