Friday Night Opener!

Friday Night is when we pull out all the stops and get the Big Tent hopping! 2015 is going to be no exception as we bring back to our Big Tent "Piano Wars!" These guys were such a HUGE hit we had people begging us to bring them back - and so we have already signed them for our 7th Annual Fall on the Island Festival! Crowds of all ages love their dueling pianos music and fun performed by master entertainers. The show includes sing-alongs, audience participation, props and DJ dance music.

Michael Beans BVI Drummond Island Fall Festival 2015
The ONE & ONLY MICHAEL "BEANS" & his "HAPPY Arrr"! 
He's part musician, part showman, part sailor and pure entertainment . . . arrr! He's made a life out of pirate lore, sailor's tales and songs of the islands. Who is this guy? His name is Michael. Michael "Beans" Gardner. And he's one-of-a-kind! 

His unique and lively show is aptly named "Happy Arrr" - a performance that turns an ordinary day into a social gathering complete with stories, jokes, sin-a-longs, audience interaction and musical participation!

Learn more about Michael Beans and his Michigan ties - along with his Haiti humanitarian efforts via the Good Samaritan of Haiti, Inc. Foundation he founded by clicking on the image above.

Back by popular demand in 2015 - Tommy Tropic! No matter what show you see as he performs throughout the day, the action comes fast and furious. He burns a lot of calories in the show, with unicycles and other balancing apparatus.
