Some Of The Nice Things

People Have Said

"Last year I was fortunate to hear about the Spoon Man, and booked him for the first time at our Fair. I am always looking for new, diverse acts and couldn't have been more pleased. Trust me, this is more than simply a man playing the spoons. Jim has a very unique act which is high energy and incorporates excellent audience participation. Needless to say, he was a very popular part of our on-grounds entertainment."

Ohio State Fair - Brett D. Chance, Entertainment Director

"The Spoon Man performed all day Monday at the Illinois State Fair, where he was mobbed by Children begging him to tap his mother's silverware on their hands."

The State Journal - Register Newspaper - Springfield IL

"Jim's show was presented in the fair's free entertainment area and was very well attended and enthusiastically received by a large audience of all ages. Patrons responded that they found the show exciting, full of high energy, and very entertaining. The staff that had the opportunity to work with 'The Spoon Man' reported that Jim was very cooperative and professional in the presentation of his show at the fair. He worked to meet the needs presented to him by the fair staff."

"Jim, super job. Your stage & strolling entertainment was fantastic. This was the second time you've entertained at the Decatur Celebration. I'm sure you will be hearing from us again."

Decatur Celebration - Fred Puglia

"Jim, I'm so glad we hooked up with you for the Mid-South Fair. Our audiences were delighted and surprised whenever they came upon you strolling the grounds. You were a particular hit at the social luncheons, where you had some of our more 'dignified' dignitaries on stage performing in your 'spoon concerts'. Not only are you a delightful entertainer, but you are flexible, which, in this business is a necessity. I wish you a successful year and hope to have you back again in the future."

Mid-South Fair - Linda P. Taylor, Entertainment Manager

"Jim, thank you so much for your participation in the Bayou Boogaloo Festival. We were happy that you contributed to its success this year. We look forward to working with you again on another event."

"The Spoon Man was very well received. When we book our strolling acts we are looking for professionals - performers that will put in the hours necessary to entertain as many fair-goers as possible. Most importantly, have a great time while they are doing it! The Spoon Man can deliver that type of performance."

Hillsdale County Fair - Scott Dow, Manager

"Jim, I was hoping for something a little different and your act certainly filled the bill. It was interesting to watch the people as they first saw you and the way you always attracted a crowd. Your strolling seemed to work very well. I am sure we will be seeing you next year."

Salmon-A-Rama-Robert W. Garrity, Entertainment Chairperson

"I would like to express our appreciation for the role you played in making the Fair entertainment line-up a big success. Your spooning was enjoyed by fair patrons of all ages. We found the show to be especially successful as a roving act, which allowed fair-goers to interact. Thank you again, for your cooperation and effort that made the event run smoothly."

South Carolina State Fair - Brenda Brooks, Director of Entertainment

"A guy playing spoons? How can THAT draw a crowd? I will admit I was a little unsure... until I saw the huge crowd at each and every performance of the Spoon Man. When you take spoons...and then add comedy, a true musical talent, crowd participation, and a great positive message, you have a blue-ribbon winner that any fair would want to have."

Clay County Fair - Jeremy Parsons, Fair Manager

"The Spoon Man was a big hit with fair-goers both young and old at this year's Exposition. He drew a lot of media attention with his strolling on the grounds. The kids involved in the Program Discovery stage shows loved him. We wouldn't hesitate recommending him to anyone! I am sure we will be contacting him again."

National Cattle Congress - Joanne Eggleston
