This July 31 there was a gorgeous and rare Blue Moon. We were lucky enough to be booked at a fantastic luau show in the Central Valley in California, where we got to dance and spin fire under the gorgeous moon next to a tropical pool. We were in great company, performing with hula dancers and a live band, and got to enjoy the calls of a highly skilled auctioneer.
Yes -- this was a charity auction event for a local church. The entertainment and food and gorgeous atmosphere was all for a great cause, and the event raised close to $50,000 for their church. They auctioned off food items, art, toys, and even a vintage tractor! They also auctioned off another luau (and invited us back to perform at it). So meta. But the auctioneer was the best part.
Fooo-rty fortyfortyfortyfive, fortyfive, can I hear fifty, fiftyfiftyfiftyfiftyfifty fifty can I hear fiftyfive!
It wasn't quite music, it wasn't quite beat boxing and it wasn't quite fast talking. Never heard anything quite like it, honestly. I was delighted. I love getting to perform at different types of events and encounter performers who are masters at art forms I never even knew existed.
Hoping they'll book us again next year, where we can bring some mermaids into that gorgeous pool!
