Themed Shows

Customized Just for You

Although my show has become primarily known as a Beach Party/Luau, you might be surprised to know that I've played hundreds of events over the years with many different themes.


For instance... Let's say your event features a patriotic theme. I'll perform in a spectacular Uncle Sam costume. I'll supply your audience with red, white and blue maracas, hats and beads along with American flags. Naturally, I'd include a bunch of American themed songs to compliment the summertime-beach-party songs that are a staple of my set. Like everything at my show it'll be way over the top!


(How’s that for politically correct)? - I know tons of holiday songs that everyone can enjoy… everyone! Giveaways might include: snowman maracas, white leis, and Santa hats.


This fast paced theme show features lots and lots of competitions, camp style singalongs and even an electric fire for all to gather 'round! -An exceptional choice for team building events!! (Brunello the awesome dog optional. Cost: One box of Milk Bones).


February or not, as far as I’m concerned, this colorful extravaganza is always in season! Giveaways might include: any combination of purple, gold and green maracas, leis and hats.


Have a big pasta dinner event? Fantastico! I have a passion for all things Italian! Over many years and plenty of trips to visit family in Italy, I've learned the language and picked up lots of authentic Italian and Italian movie inspired songs that will instantly transport your audience to the Old Country!!


Yeah, yeah, I know.... Aargh! This is actually not too far off from a beach party....and it is definitely my absolute favorite!

Name your game of choice and I’ll create a party around it!

50’s, 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s

(but you already knew that).

That's right. I can and have done this show dozens of times in a straight ahead classic tux. No matter how formal the affair, itll always feel a little bit looser with my show!

Hollywood Oscar statue prizes, black and glittering silver tinseled maracas, feather boas, top hats… and me in the most ridiculous rhinestone tuxedo… talk about an over the top theme!

He has social anxiety disorder, so new social settings are intimidating and cause him to become anxious. The dad was especially touched and rushed right over to point out his son to me; it was really incredible. I’m a social worker so I know how amazing it is that he was on stage and even participating. I don't know if you often learn of the impact your show has on the audience.”

Most importantly he was very nice and extremely cooperative with me and my staff (that made my job much easier!!). Thanks for allowing us to enjoy such a wonderful show!

He was absolutely amazing as I would only expect him to be. I think this was the best show here in a long time... the crowd just would not leave because he was keeping them going the entire night.

Max really shined. He worked hard to get their attention, formed a conga line, had a group of singers on stage, had contests and helped an awful lot of students have a very good time. I think that there is no one who works any harder at having fun than Travelin Max! He really did great!"
