Two Jugglers--two very different styles.
The mother and son act of "All In J.E.S.T. Juggling" has a lot to offer, and will make your upcoming event very special. They can perform individually as well as together. They perform for birthday and holiday parties, schools, churches, nursing homes, civic groups, clubs, churches, Mardi Gras or medieval events, outdoor events such as festivals, parades, and parties, and ......you name it! For churches, they provide Christian entertainment, performing routines with a Gospel message. For more details about our birthday party entertainment, please see below. Also, you can count on Kathy and Stephen to be professional, neat, organized, and on time. All In JEST will arrive at your event as jesters (not clowns), in a jester or jester-ish look. Since they are not clowns, they will not have painted faces, which can be scary to some children. But they are open to changing their appearance based on your event. Once Kathy dressed as one of the Incredibles for a party.
Kathy has been juggling and performing for over 35 years. She is very versatile, incorporating comedy, an old school juggling style, balancing on a rola-bola, and lots of audience participation into her shows. But, she also performs very theatrical pieces occasionally, as well. Kathy is very organized and in fact is one of the organizers of an annual juggling festival in the Pittsburgh area that attracts about 200 jugglers!
Now let's talk about Stephen! Stephen, who has been juggling since 2007, has a very current and youthful stage style, that is evident by things like--the way he moves, the music he uses, the props he performs with, and even his environment he is in at the time, which he likes to use! Stephen's style is very artistic and creative and after one of his performances, you may feel that you have just witnessed a juggling art exhibit! Of course Stephen can perform with his mother for any of the events listed above, too, but he is really in his element performing on the stage.
As a team act, they do all of the traditional juggling that people are accustomed to seeing....such as passing clubs and stealing clubs off of each other. A highlight of their show is when they pass clubs around a volunteer and have audience members walk right through as they pass clubs! In the end, "a good time will be had by all".
BIRTHDAY PARTIES - All In J.E.S.T. performs for birthday parties with a juggling show with balloon sculptures to follow. Kathy has developed a unique "musical instrument" using empty cat food cans and even had a video of her playing "Happy Birthday To You" shown on the TV show Ellen, for Ellen's birthday show in January of 2014! So, you could have Kathy play the birthday song at your event, using this wacky instrument as well!
JUGGLE-GRAM - Speaking of birthdays, there is also the "JUGGLE-GRAM!!! Kathy doesn't sing, but rather recites a birthday poem she wrote with words that coordinate with the juggling she does in this very funny and unique way to wish someone a happy birthday!
So, whether your event is fun and festive and you want something comical, or you need a technical artistic performance for your show venue, All In J.E.S.T. will fit the bill!
