Gabriel's performances are unique, hilarious and very enlightening. Gabriel has an outstanding reputation for bringing a fun, fresh and purely entertaining approach to hypnotism while dispelling the mysterious and degrading myths that often surround this fascinating state of mind. Gabriel's hypnotic induction features a completely observable process during which the audience becomes the witness to a remarkable transformation from the conscious to a subconscious state of mind. Once this hypnotized state is achieved, Gabriel creates the enormously entertaining performance, enjoining participants and audience members alike into an unforgettable performance. Every participant on stage will react differently to the suggestions offered, thus no two shows are ever alike!

Pickleball Demonstration
Come join in on the fun sport with a funny name: Pickleball!

We started playing pickleball in this area with friends bringing it back with them from the southern states. In Oct 2017 we had just over 100 people playing - now we’ve grown to almost 300 people by May 2019! Come join in on the fun of America’s fastest growing sport! Check us out at laxpickleball.com to get involved.

WHAT IS PICKLEBALL?!!Pickleball, the "fun game with a funny name" is America's fastest growing sport! It is a game that borrows rules from tennis, badminton and ping-pong (table tennis) and also has some unique rules of its own. In particular, there are three unique rules:
1) the non-volley zone (aka "the kitchen"),
2) the underhand serve, and
3) the double bounce rule.
More on each of those in the HOW TO PLAY section.
 
The game got its start in 1965 on badminton court near Seattle, Washington. For more information on how it all got started, check out the History of Pickleball page. For how Pickleball got started in the La Crosse area, check out the About La Crosse Pickleball Clubpage.
 
Pickleball is played on a badminton-sized court (20 x 44 feet) with a net that is 2 inches lower than a tennis net (36 inches on end and 34 inches in the center). It is played with a perforated plastic ball, similar to a wiffle ball, and a paddle that can be made of composite, graphite, wood or other materials. The paddle is like an oversized ping-pong paddle.

Pickleball Demonstration
Come join in on the fun sport with a funny name: Pickleball!
We started playing pickleball in this area with friends bringing it back with them from the southern states. In Oct 2017 we had just over 100 people playing - now we’ve grown to almost 300 people by May 2019! Come join in on the fun of America’s fastest growing sport! Check us out at laxpickleball.com to get involved.

WHAT IS PICKLEBALL?!!  Pickleball, the "fun game with a funny name" is America's fastest growing sport! It is a game that borrows rules from tennis, badminton and ping-pong (table tennis) and also has some unique rules of its own. In particular, there are three unique rules:

1) the non-volley zone (aka "the kitchen"),
2) the underhand serve, and
3) the double bounce rule.
More on each of those in the HOW TO PLAY section.

The game got its start in 1965 on badminton court near Seattle, Washington. For more information on how it all got started, check out the History of Pickleball page. For how Pickleball got started in the La Crosse area, check out the About La Crosse Pickleball Clubpage.

Pickleball is played on a badminton-sized court (20 x 44 feet) with a net that is 2 inches lower than a tennis net (36 inches on end and 34 inches in the center). It is played with a perforated plastic ball, similar to a wiffle ball, and a paddle that can be made of composite, graphite, wood or other materials. The paddle is like an oversized ping-pong paddle.

Gabriel Holmes
Gabriel's performances are unique, hilarious and very enlightening. Gabriel has an outstanding reputation for bringing a fun, fresh and purely entertaining approach to hypnotism while dispelling the mysterious and degrading myths that often surround this fascinating state of mind. Gabriel's hypnotic induction features a completely observable process during which the audience becomes the witness to a remarkable transformation from the conscious to a subconscious state of mind. Once this hypnotized state is achieved, Gabriel creates the enormously entertaining performance, enjoining participants and audience members alike into an unforgettable performance. Every participant on stage will react differently to the suggestions offered, thus no two shows are ever alike!

Boogie and the YoYoz
Boogie & the Yo-Yoz started performing for the masses in 1995 under their original name, Yogi & the Boo Booz. They were named after their drummer's (Brian Yogerst) nickname. (Not after that pesky bear who steals picnic baskets) Unfortunately, shortly after their inception, they had a little bit of a run in with Hanna-Barbera (Yogi & Boo Boo's keepers). Thus, the name change. Boogie has played a variety of shows ranging from birthday parties, weddings, and local taverns to regional festivals, opening for national acts, and headlining county and state fairs.

WHAT MAKES THEM DIFFERENT:

Variety: They are not a Pop band, a Country band, or a Rock band. They are an Everything band. Or I guess you could say a "Pocktry" band?? It's safe to say, whatever your musical taste, they will have something for you.

Horn Section: Not too many bands are able to boast a 3 piece horn section. This allows them to play a bigger variety of tunes without sacrificing quality. Throw in some choreography and the crowd goes wild.

Everyone Sings: Boogie & the Yo-Yoz prides itself in diversity. They have the ability to cater to all tastes in music due to their vocal and instrumental flexibility.

Production: Every event is different, and they have the resources to accommodate every situation. They travel with a seasoned sound company that has the ability to provide sound and lighting for crowds from 20 to 20,000.

Professionalism: Fun is the biggest perk of their job; however, they do view their performances as jobs and treat every event with the respect that it demands.

Energy: You know that phrase "give 110%"? Well, they invented it. They are always moving, singing, and entertaining. One 30 minute break is all they require for a full four hour show.
