Stunt rider Johnny Rocket, Lady Galaxy, and FlatOut Freestyle will thrill audiences with mind-blowing maneuvers on motorcycle!
About Johnny Rockett:
Crowd favorite Johnny Rocket (a.k.a. John Daly) will again be on hand to dazzle audiences with his jaw-dropping daredevil Cybertron act. The act, which has been described as “motorcycle marvels mastermind multiple maelstroms of maximum mayhem and madness in a menacing melodrama,” features Daly and an aerial motorcycle on trapeze-style equipment designed by Daly himself.
About FlatOut Freestyle:
This is a new act appearing at the Melha Shrine Circus! Daredevils Jason Rowe (30 yrs old) and brother, Jack Rowe (25 yrs old) out of Chicago, IL, have spent their whole lives on motorcycles. Starting out as racers, stunt riding evolved from this course and is both the thrill and passion each Rowe enjoys.
Stunts begin with portable ramps approximately 75 ft. apart from which the Rowe brothers launch themselves atop motorcycles 30 to 35 feet in the air to perform tricks you most definitely shouldn’t try at home!
Jason notes, “the more the crowd responds, the more pumped up we are and the more daring the stunts!”
