Fireboy's Other Talent

I haven't talked much about Fireboy's other talent. Besides being an accomplished fire twirler, he is also a break dancer. I'm not sure which of his talents I like better.



I was downtown Tuesday night. I met up with one of my blog readers, Loretta, and her BF, Mike. She had written and asked me a few questions. Which I answered. My reward? A jar of much needed horseradish and a free Sol! Can't beat that. Loretta and Mike are also accomplished musicians so I introduced them to Javier, the leader of the house band at Fayne's. I think they will be joining the band this Friday night. I hope to be able to get some good video of that.



Meanwhile, back to the talent portion of our show! FB is always accompanied by this hippie/backpacker/new age drum ensemble. When you hear them start to play, you know he is around somewhere!





The lighting was really bad for these videos. He was indoors and they had turned out the lights for his previous fire twirling. Here they are for your enjoyment.

my gosh .. I'm surprised the FB hasn't broken an arm or twisted his body out of socket. Great video.

That lighting is much better than when I videoed him in front of Chile Locos a couple of weeks ago!! That kid's got talent for sure!

Does the thought of inevitable hip replacement ever enter the minds of the young - yikes!

Good stuff Wayne ;-)

This guy always amazes me. He has great raw talent. Thanks, Wayne, for the videos. I am with you: I don't know whether his fire escapades or his dancing are his better skill. When I get over your way, I look forward to seeing him in action.

He is a wirey little fellow! He reminds me of those dolls that are articulated at the waist. The ones where you can turn the upper body all the way around to face the back. I never thought about how good he could be if somebody worked with him. Ain't gonna be me though! LOL!

Wayne, Steve here, the guy who talked to you in front of the bank last week, maybe the week before. We met Loretta and Mike as well, they are staying close to where we stayed. Awesome people. Again, keep up the good work!

great shots. thanks to your earlier mention and video of the fire dancer, i looked for him at night and shot some video of my own. amazing stuff. i posted a few of the best on you tube. he could be a star if he hooks up with someone who knows how to help him. his raw talent is undeniable. he’s a fun guy too and so are his drummers.

I saw these kids last year in front of Rolandis.
We have a group of us going to Isla next week for our wedding, and we've been telling everyone about these guys. good to know they are still there!
