Brent Burns

WHEN: Apr 02 - Apr 29
PHONE: (251) 967-5858
Brent Burns was born in Seminole, Oklahoma, and moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1958. While attending high school and community college, sports were important, but music was in his blood. Brent soon strapped on an electric guitar and was fronting a rock-n-roll band. Life soon changed when he volunteered for service in Vietnam. Several months after entering combat, Brent was wounded and received the Purple Heart. After a three-year recuperation in and out of military hospitals, he returned to his love of music and hit the road performing all over the United States. Later on he felt compelled to take a year off from music and hit the college lecture circuit. Offering an honest, insightful, and a humorous look at life as a combat soldier, Brent was able to help others troubled with the effect of the war on their day to day lives. Brent Burns is no stranger to notoriety. In response to the oil shortages of the 1980s, Burns wrote the hit song, “Cheaper Crude or No More Food”. It sold 200,000 copies the first day it was released.   Paul Harvey played the song three times: the first and only song ever played in the program’s 35-year history.  Burns’ fame has continued with guest appearances on all three major networks, interviews on the BBC and featured articles in the New York Times, Chicago Tribune and Billboard Magazine. Brent also has the distinction of being the first entertainer to sing for American troops overseas since the tragedy of September 11.  Besides his busy performance schedule, he continues to perform at benefits around the world, including the National Underwater Marine Agency (NUMA) of Australia, the Phoenix Suns Night Hoops Program, American Cancer Society, and Habitat for Humanity, where Brent is building a house with proceeds from his latest CD “Margarita Smile.”

Reviving the popular public bird banding events originally championed by the late Bob Sargent and his wife, Martha, this project provides a scientifically invaluable look at spring migrants traveling through the Coastal Alabama section of the Mississippi Flyway, one of the four major routes North American birds travel on their way to and from their summer breeding grounds. Throughout the week, the public will enjoy unparalleled access both to researchers and to the birds, with opportunities to discuss the science behind the surveys and the important conservation work happening on the Gulf Coast. They’ll also get up-close-and-personal looks at some amazing migratory birds! Remember to bring water, bug spray, sunscreen, and perhaps an outdoor chair; restrooms and concessions are available next to the ferry, and all ages are welcome to attend. Please note that while the Coastal Alabama Bird Banding Project is free, there is an admission fee to enter the park. For up-to-date pricing, visit this website.

WHERE: The Grounds Mobile
PRICE: Tickets can be purchased now starting at $10-$50 depending on availability.
PHONE: (941) 704-8572
Cirque Italia has grown to the point where the next logical step can only be to expand operations and double our presence at the national level. In response to our wonderful fans all over the U.S., and with over 90% of shows being sold out, NOW is the perfect time for a substantial investment. Beginning in 2017, Cirque Italia, the first traveling Water Circus, introduced a second unit, the Gold Unit: a luxurious experience where technology and preforming arts are mixed to create a one-of-a-kind show. Now for 2018, a brand-new performance has been created. This new performance will feature an ultra-modern water curtain that controls every droplet of water meticulously. Audience members can expect to see words and beautiful patterns as the water falls to the ‘lagoon’ below. Cirque Italia is ready to provide a breathtaking experience. This new stage by itself is enough to amaze the most demanding audience, and synchronized with the most creative display of superhuman talent - the result is simply out of this world!    The latest trends of the industry are challenged with every Cirque Italia appearance and this 2nd unit is not going to be any different. A careful casting selection has united the best artists from all over the world. This production will feature acts all the way from Russia to Mexico. Cirque Italia believes in multi-culturalism as one of our strongest assets. Packed full of incredible acts, there is no room for boredom. The variety presented is exceptional. For those who enjoy whimsy, we have an Avatar and not one, but two mermaids. There is almost no bodily limit for our contortionist, Ricardo, as he bends in ways you never would have imagined. Our incredible wheel of death performance features a front summersault flip, something you will be hard-pressed to see anywhere else. If that doesn’t get your head spinning, perhaps our 5 roller skaters and their incredible tricks and turns will. And although Cirque Italia does not use animals in our performances, this year we will be featuring amazing lifelike elephant puppets. They are so well made, you might just think they are real. Whether it’s a futuristic laser act or mesmerizing aerial performances, the show has something for all tastes and expectations. One thing Cirque Italia sets out to accomplish is to create a type of world-class entertainment suitable for all age groups.  This new second unit also follows the same strict animal-free policy that makes the Water Circus stand out from other circus entertainment shows.The “magic touch” of the Italian entrepreneur Manuel Rebecchi, President and Owner of Cirque Italia, added to the flawless direction of the COO, Chanté DeMoustes, and has turned this once romantic project into a successful production known and acclaimed all over the country. Don’t miss the opportunity to be amazed and transported to a fantastic realm where your deepest dreams can -and will- come true. For more information visit and make sure to check all our social media accounts. Tickets can be purchased now starting at $10-$50 depending on availability.  Cirque Italia offers one free child admission with every full priced paying adult ticket in levels 2 or 3. This offer cannot be combined with any other offers, discounts or deals. Please call 941-704-8572 to find out the promo code for this location.
