Nothing else can compare to someone jumping a 250 pound motorcycle 75 feet through the air... while doing a back flip, or hanging off the back of it by one hand! That is exactly what these professional daredevils do! Along with phenomenal bike skills comes their unique, fun, and entertaining style that most other freestyle motocross teams fall short of delivering! All of the riders have crazy outgoing personalities that crowds adhere to and can’t take their eyes off of. Crowd interaction is the riders’ favorite part of doing shows. With their colourful presence and showmanship, spectators are sure to be left with lasting memories! The riders will be available after each show for autographs and to take photographs with fans.

Fubuki Daiko reinvents traditional Japanese drumming with their eclectic and energetic performances that are part martial arts athleticism, part meditation, and all rhythm. For over twenty years, they have performed at festivals, concert halls, and schools across North America. The core members of the group each have over 25 years of taiko experience and received their formative training from the founder of North American Taiko, Grandmaster Seiichi Tanaka. After performing at Carnegie Hall with the San Francisco Taiko Dojo and receiving Tanaka’s blessing, they relocated to Winnipeg, Manitoba where they expanded into a professional touring ensemble.
