Highland Bagpipes with George Harcrow
A Member of Callanish Pipe Band will play and talk about the bagpipes.

The Callanish Pipe Band serves as the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Honor Guard Pipes and Drums. They've played for the Sheriff's Regional Training Center Academy Graduation ceremony, funerals, graduations, parades, major and minor league sporting events, and other special activities including the annual Blue Mass, a ceremony sponsored by the Knight's of Columbus, honoring the men and women of all First Responders (Police, Fire, Paramedics, and Sheriff’s Department). The Blue Mass brought together multiple pipe bands that played to honor those in uniform. We are proud to provide this service to those who keep us safe.

Educational and Anti-drug Programs

Young minds are fascinated by the images of powerful knights and beautiful ladies. Nothing captures their attention and imagination like having the Imperial Knights bring these images to life right in front of them. We can bring our show to your location and tailor it to fit any field or multi-purpose room.

Imperial Knights' educational programs bring history to life! Nothing get's students involved like having characters right out of their textbook speaking and answering their questions. In accordance with grade level standards we give an educational presentation complete with demonstrations and authentic tools.

Our Anti-drug show helps give kids the courage to "Just Say No" by inspiring them to follow their dreams in a unique and unforgettable way! While many other programs can have trouble getting through, students of all ages connect with our show's message.

"We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves."
~Galileo Galilei

The Universe According to Galileo Show™ is a unique interactive show with the Maestro himself. With the "help" of his house maid Marina Gamba, Galileo entertains & discusses the fundamentals of the budding science of astronomy of his time. (Circa: 1608-1611.) With the ever popular, Planets on a Stick™, Galileo asks for volunteers from the audience to become a living model of the known universe based on the theories of Aristotle, Ptolemy and Copernicus, as well as, his discoveries made with the telescope. By adding a touch of wit, improvisation and a little Italian Commedia Del' Arte flavor, you'll not only be entertained, but have a good time learning something as well.

The show is somewhat family orientated (PG-13), the show is versatile and flexible to accommodate for a children's audience and adult audiences. The show can be done with as little as a few people for an up close and personal show, to a full audience and everything in between.
Two teaser sets of family fun from the All Amrican Celtic pub band!
Barleyjuice was born out of Rock and Roll, reared on British Invasion, Country Western and Progressive Rock, and landed somewhere in the North Channel with a penchant for all things Celtic. Kyf, Swanny, Eric, Alice & Barnes welcome you to their playground of musical misbehavior. Kilts may be the preferred dress, but bagpipes, fiddle, accordion, mandolin, bouzouki, whistle, piano, harmonica, bass and drums cover them nicely even when they turn up naked.
