The groove orientated jazz band, AKA Scion, ended the five week concert series at Town and Country Village in Palo Alto. The five bands meant increased foot traffic for this shopping center, and increased business for the six restaurants, one coffee house, bookstore, and muffin bakery. This 5 week concert series will continue in the summer of 2010 due to it's overall success and popularity.

Keith and His All-Stars band attracted a huge crowd at a Palo Alto shopping center opposite Stanford University. There are six restaurants in the Town and Country Village Palo Alto, and all the restaurants gained increased business. Keith and his female vocalist sang the hits, and their audience responded by dancing, or by sitting and enjoying their music. The setting was perfect, by a huge Oak Tree, on a covered stage. Keith sang a wonderful impression of Louis Armstrong, and got his crowd "shouting with glee," by singing the Isley Brothers' hit song "Shout." Keith and his vocalist also featured the hits of Donna Summer, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, and Justin Timberlake.

Our fire acrobatic act and lumi dancers ended a full day of circus themed entertainment at a San Francisco party. A DJ provided the music, with our two lumi dancers "lighting the way" for the dancing. A caricaturist attracted long lines, during the day.
Imagine a Hula Hoop and poi act, Hand Balancers, and a Cheetah-for a Circus "Cirque du Soleil" theme at a San Francisco party. The Hula Hoop and Poi duo attracted a crowd, with audience involvement-everyone tried hula hooping. Our Hand Balancers were a unique act, with the two performers having performed at the Chinese Olympics, and Teatro Zin Zani (San Francisco).
Our Stilt Walkers, an Organ Grinder with Monkey, and Carnival Games, were a huge attraction for a circus themed event at a San Francisco private party. Guests who saw the Monkey and Organ Grinder were so enamored with the Monkey, that they wanted to take the monkey home.
Our Stilt Walking and Juggling team set the tone, by meeting and greeting, and working the crowd.
