A Busy Winter...But Please End Soon!

This winter brought more than just lots of snow. It brought some great performing opportunities. The new year started off at the first ever Brooklyn New Year's Eve celebration right under the parachute jump in Coney Island. The event was a huge success, drawing over 5,ooo revelers, where I performed with the Coney Island Circus Sideshow. 

At The Year's End...

As the calendar year approaches it's end, I look forward to sending it off in pure Coney Island style. 

I'll be performing with the cast of the Coney Island Circus Sideshow under the parachute jump on New Years Eve for the first event of it's kind. It'll be cold, but the energy of the night will keep us warm. I hope. Fireworks will light up the night sky following our performance.

Support the Small Business

About two months ago I was looking on Etsy for a set of wrist cuffs. What strongman doesn't have wrist cuffs, right? Anyway, I stumbled upon Eastern Oregon Leather Co. and seeing as they had quite the selection on Etsy, I jumped on to their website. All I can say is wow! If it's made of leather and looks cool, Shane at Eastern Oregon can make it! I called up and placed an order with Shane. Talk about service!

The Strongmen Return!

it's the season of the strongman in more ways than one. There's lots of big news in the strongman commmunity. The documentary 'Bending Steel' is set to make it's world priemere at the Tribecca Film Festival on April 20. The film follows strongman Chris Schoeck as he trains for a performance slot at the first annual Olde Time Coney Island Strongman Spectacular. I'm thrilled to say that I play a major role in the film as does my co-producer of the Strongman Spectacular, Chris Rider.

Coney Island Strongman Spectacular

It could not have been a nicer day! Temperature in the low 80's, sun shining and plenty of people heading out to see the return of thr strongmen in Coney Island.

The day began with the Baby Soda Jazz Band on the main stage. Complete with horns, banjo and one-string bass, Baby Soda was as refreshing as the salty sea mist spraying up 12th Street.

Another TV Appearance

It's nice to see some things find the light of day. A few years back, I was contacted to film a pilot for a travel-type television show. I've been filmed for quite a few television pilot programs and most are never picked up, but this week I came across the Crackle series: James Hyde Steals the Show. This was a show that I filmed at least 2 years ago.

New York Dolls Video Shoot

 Just about a year ago I was invited to film a New York Dolls' video. Being a Dolls fan for the last 25 years, this was a really cool opportunity to meet, hang out with and be a part of New York Dolls' history. And the day was exactly as I would have expected it to be. David Johansen and Sylvain Sylvain were laid back and very friendly. The set up for the shoot took up the better part of the day while the actual shoot only lasted about an hour and a half...but in that hour and a half I must have swallowed my sword close to 30 times. By the last few I was really ready to call it quits.
