Where are you located?
I am based in beautiful San Diego, CA.
Are you willing to travel?
Absolutely! Let me know the location of your event when you inquire and I will give you a quote with the adjustments for travel!
How much does a show cost?
That depends on the show you desire...length of time, number of performers, & additional effects, for example. However, most shows run somewhere between $350 and $1500. Let me know the details & I will be happy to put together a show for your budget range!
Can a fire show take place indoors?
While there are elements to be considered (safety, alarms, ventilation, permissions, etc), many indoor venues are suitable for fire shows. Where fire is not an option, I offer LED props which serve as "digital fire."
How much space do you need?
The amount of space required for a show varies, depending on the number of performers on stage at a time, the props used, and other factors. Fire Eating, Fire Fingers and Palm Torches are appropriate for smaller spaces, for instance, while Fire Poi, Hoop and Staff require much more. I can adapt a show to fit most stages.
How do I book a show?
Contact me for a quote. Once the details are sorted out, I will write up a contract. Once the contract is signed and the 50% (nonrefundable) deposit is received, your show is booked.
What if I have to cancel/reschedule?
Your deposit insures that your special date is reserved for you. If you cancel the date more than 30 days in advance, there is no additional charge. If the event date is less than 30 days away when cancelled, the full fee will be due within 1 week of the scheduled show date.
If you need to reschedule, I will do my best to fulfill your request. (I may not be able if the date you want is already booked by another client.) If you are rescheduling less than 30 days before the contracted show date, additional fees may apply.
What if you are sick/injured and can't perform?
In the event of an unfortunate accident or illness, I will first try to find the best replacement entertainment for you, so that you don't have to. (Who wants that stress?) I have an extensive network of performers, from fire to aerials to stilt walkers and clowns. The only thing you will have to do is let me know which available performer you would like to step in. If we can't find someone that's right for your event, you get a refund. That's it. No hassle. You can breathe easier knowing that you are covered.
What if it rains?
Since fire performance is most commonly booked for events out of doors, clients are often concerned about potential weather issues. Even in San Diego, where we are blessed with year round, mild weather, sometimes it rains, and sometimes the wind blows. (Sssh! don't tell anyone) When that happens on a night that I have been booked to perform, things usually go down in one of the following ways:
1. It's just a light drizzle, which is no problem, because the props will still burn just fine. The show goes on.
2. It pours, but only for a little bit, in which case we wait it out, and the show goes on. For whatever time you have book your show, on your contract you will notice that I've included a 30 minute window for the start time. This is to help cover you in instances just like this one.
3. Outside is just not happening tonight. We can move your show inside, with fire if permitted, or with LED props if the venue doesn't meet fire safety specs. Either way, you are covered.
