The Beale Street Flippers were a raw talent. When the Grizzlies moved to Memphis, they hired them to add excitement during time outs. A few NBA teams noticed and tried them for halftime shows, but the Flippers mostly made their living busking on Beale Street.
Intrigued, I decided to get to know them. I traveled with them, listened to their dreams, saw their reality. I thought I could help.
I developed effective promotional materials and created a crowd-pleasing music track and a polished acrobatic routine. We bought uniforms, and I made it easy for clients to hire them.
Since then, they’ve done halftime for almost every NBA team and most major college teams. In 2015, they were named the country’s #2 halftime act. In 2016, they performed at All-Star Weekend in Toronto. They’ve been in several movies and on America’s Got Talent. Our goal for this year is to secure a major sponsor.
And Lord knows, I can’t do a back handspring to save my life!
