Contact Juggling: My style of contact juggling is very fluid and mystical. Audiences will be mesmerized as my glass contact juggling sphere rolls seemingly of it's own will around my hands, arms and body.

Crystal Sticks: I have a very fast playstyle when it comes to stick juggling. A much more fast-paced acrobatically involved appearance to this performance. Though perfectly suitable by itself, I think it gets even greater impact when performed with fast, upbeat music.

Magic/Illusions: My style would fall under the category of close-up, or "street style" magic, specializing in cards, coins and sleight of hand type illusions.

Additional Booking Notes

For an additional fee, I can provide lighting or sound systems for an event, and can operate while I am not performing, if sound or lighting is needed for another aspect of the event, such as a musician or speaker.

I perform many types of juggling as well as magic illusions, but my specialty is contact juggling. (if you are unfamiliar with that, please search youtube for "sphereplay promo". The top result, by: CannonballJames is me. ) I have been performing this particular art for over 5 years, and have worked with Midwest Concerts and Events on several occasions, as well as performing for various festivals, parades, meetings, parties, etc. I am able to accommodate for themed events with a variety of costuming, especially anything with a renaissance, fantasy, or pirate flair. I have worked with musicians as well, adding to stage presence by performing freestyle along with their music. I can also provide my own music, or work silent, in a 'living statue' type of act.

-Corporate Gatherings
-Private Parties
-Dinner Gatherings
-Public Events
-Children's Events
-Music Concerts

Don't hesitate! Contact juggling is a magical, mystical art that is certain to astound and amaze people of all ages. Again, if you missed it before, you can find a demonstration of my work by searching "sphereplay promo" on youtube. Thanks, and I look forward to performing at your next event!
