Michael Jackson impersonator big hit at Gilroy party

Our Michael Jackson impersonator was a big hit at a five year old birthday party in Gilroy.
Anthony is a huge Michael Jackson fan, singing and dancing to Michael Jackson's solid gold hits.

He and his friends were awed and totally surprised when our Michael Jackson impersonator performed at his party, especially when he danced and sang to "Billie Jean" and "Beat It." His party will be memorable, especially when Gerald, as Michael Jackson, posed for photos.

"Hi Stan
 Indiana Jones was AMAZING! All of the kids enjoyed the activities that he provided (mummy wrapping, artifact scavenger hunt, old stories and bullwhipping the kids and me!). The moms were just happy to look at him (ha!)! His use of the whips was incredible…he should be the next Harrison Ford for Indiana Jones 5! Thank you again for arranging such great entertainment.
