Why book Nathan Machutta?

My name is Nathan Machutta and I am Firelight Entertainment!
I am a highly skilled, fully insured, entertainer with over 10 years of experience as a fire performer, stilt walker, juggler, balloon twister, acro-balancer, aerialist, and snake charmer! Professionalism and audience enjoyment are very important to me and I always provide my best for every event! Safety is also a primary concern. Many of the arts I practice have an element of risk and the lengths I go through to be able to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience helps to set me apart from many other performers you'll find here!
I work with all of the best entertainers in Arizona, if you want more, just ask me!




Nathan is an engaging, dynamic performer with a huge skill set! He will go the distance to make sure the entertainment he provides is top-notch. I've seen him perform multiple times and I'm always impressed with his range of expertise and warmth as a performer.

Review by Suzanne C.

I attended a party in Phoenix where Nathan was one of the entertainers. Having had many parties myself, its hard to find good creative entertainment. Nathan is not good, he is FANTASTIC. If you are looking for something different to really WOW the crowd, he'd your guy!

Review by Tasha U.

We have hired Nathan and his company for MANY of our private parties. One example is we do an annual Luau every November and his team performs at all of them. This party includes my family, friends and a lot of times co-workers, clients and partners in my industry. Nathan ans his team are always very professional and fun loving people and my guests (even if they saw him the year before) are always impressed. Nathan combines years of dance, martial arts and other trainings to choreograph his own performances and they are always hot and original. I highly recommend Nathan and his team for your events.

When a client hires me they can expect professionalism, dependability, a quality show, and a happy audience.
I am fully insured and go through extensive measures to assure the safety and enjoyment of your guests. One of those safety measures is my Fire Safety Assistant. I never do a fire show without a trained person on site with me making sure the fire stays where it's supposed to: in my hands.
I also follow the fire performer safety regulations set down by the North American Fire Arts Association.
I am one of the most experienced fire dancers in the state of Arizona and I can guarantee you an amazing show!

Influences & Inspiration
