The best kept secret in music


"You guys totally blew me away!!! I am kind of jaded as I have been booking college entertainment for about 21 years now, and it is great to see something so new and different. I am partial to sideshow type stuff, but how many guys can you see do the same basic stuff and still be excited by it?

...You guys really have something very special with your fire show!

...On my end, you guys are a pleasure to work with. You wowed my students, and they are a tough crowd. Many people were talking about you all weekend and asking when you'll be back!! I think you guys are destined for a great run in the college market and the obvious bond of friendship among you will prove to be a major asset." - Marty Greenfield, Director of Student Activities & College Union at SUNY Delhi

"I hope you all enjoyed your time in Selinsgrove, PA and interacting with the students at Susquehanna University last weekend. The fire show was a HUGE hit and everyone is still talking about it. Many students left the venue at the end of the night saying: "This was such a good night, I don't know you are going to top it next year!"

…Some students and staff members came specifically for the midnight fire show and loved it! Thanks so much for interacting so well with the crowd during and after the event. It was great that some of the students had the opportunity to try twirling themselves and chat with you all about your experiences.

… I definitely look forward to our paths crossing again in the future. Best of luck and thanks again for the great performance!"

- Kevin Hannahoe, Interim Asst. Director of Campus Activities at Susquehanna University

"A Different Spin brought all day fun and excitement to Mansfield University's Spring Fling. Their kindness and patience while they were teaching us how to juggle was greatly appreciated. They kept the morale and energy up all day! Even though it was during the day, the fire show was amazing and intense - I hope to see it at night and bring them back to Mansfield!" - Roxanne Davies of Mansfield Activities Council (Mansfield University)

I guess if I had to sum up your performance, I would say the first time I saw you guys I knew it wouldn't be the last and that you'd make any audience drop their jaws the way mine did each time. Fun, energetic group of guys who really work to get the audience involved both during a show and off stage. I LOVED IT and i can't wait until you're back. - Kaela Mast of Mansfield Activities Council (Mansfield University)

"I want to thank you for helping us celebrate Coast Guard Day 2009!

Your performance was amazing. Additionally, the time you spent roving the crowd and entertaining the kids, was incredible.

A Different Spin helped make it possible for Coastie's and their families enjoy Coast Guard Day 2009, and our celebration was an unprecedented success due in part to your efforts."

Still working on that hot first release.



A Different Spin is a great fit for any indoor or outdoor event.

A Different Spin is a truly unique entertainment experience. This circus variety troupe specializes in spectacular fire performance, using tight choreography and high-energy music to transcend ordinary fire spinning and light up the night! Regularly compared to the thrill of a fireworks display with a more up-close and personal feel, their incredible fire show features whirling flames, four person torch juggling, and a completely one-of-a-kind fire sword fight. And their enthusiasm for fire is matched by their attention to safety: A Different Spin is fully insured and is proud to boast a spotless safety record.

These versatile performers also thrill audiences with great circus variety shows featuring juggling, acrobatics, glass walking, and some truly memorable audience participation! Since the group's inception in 2006, they have been a big hit at colleges, festivals and conventions in Canada and across the United States, including performances at Club Med and with the Dreamtime Circus in San Francisco.

A Different Spin also specializes in daytime and promotional events, perfect for founder's fairs or parents' weekends. They can serve as strolling entertainment to give an event a festive carnival atmosphere, or to promote an event later in the evening: maybe even a spectacular fire show!
