Cannonball was booked as an entertainer for the Rock'N'Ribs festival. Not only was his pirate outfit unbelievably authentic, his crystal ball act was amazing! All day long he had a crowd of both kids and adults alike. I will definitely be booking him for future events!

Crowd Pleaser - An Eventective User from Springfield MO

Cannonball James was booked through Midwest Concerts and Events, which handled the entertainment for the annual Rock N Ribs Festival held in the Bass Pro parking lot in Springfield MO. He was highly recommended, and had been working with Midwest for several years. He started turning heads from the moment he walked onto the festival grounds. His pirate outfit was completely authentic, and even before he began performing, people of all ages were stopping him to have their picture taken with him, even some of the staff! In addition to just being a very interesting character, his juggling acts were amazing, especially the crystal ball act! He made a crystal ball appear to float and roll all around his body. All day long, there were crowds of both children and adults surrounding him to watch. I have never seen anything like it. His prices were very reasonable, especially considering it was an outdoor event and working in varying conditions. The day started out cold and raining, and ended hot and humid, but he was still always there with a smile on his face. He certainly met and exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend him for any event, as he was able to mesmerize people of all ages and interests. There was hardly anyone who walked past him who didn't stop and watch for at least a little while. He was also very good with the children, even teaching them some of the moves, and letting them try his props. I know I will definitely be considering booking him again for future events. People are still talking to me about it!
