We offer a full production show and will arrive at your venue with all of our gear including sound system, portable 10x10 dressing room and 10x10 island sunset backdrop which is the backdrop for our staging area. It also can serve as a great backdrop for photos with your party guests, either with or without costumed performers. We can offer polynesian music playlists as background music for the duration of your event, to be played before and after the show. Our costumed dancers can provide a lei greeting for your guests (you provide the leis). Our typical show will consist of approximately 12 to 14 dances, with 5 costume changes and up to 3 separate audience interaction segments. We specialize in audience interaction and can ensure that you and your guests will have a great time.
Our equipment requires access to at least 40 amps of power within 25 feet of the staging area. This may be accomplished by using 2 standard commercial 20 amp circuits. All circuits must be free of any other draw (i.e., nothing else on circuits). At festivals and public access events we reserve the right to sell promotional materials such as program DVDs, t-shirts, hats, etc.
