Comedy Hypnotist Don Barnhart


The Don Barnhart Comedy Hypnosis Show delivers interactive, improvisational and sidesplitting comedy while simultaneously unlocking the unique mysteries of the human mind. It’s a musical, fast-paced romp through volunteers’ subconscious creative genius that keeps audiences on the edges of their seats. Akin to releasing the hidden talents of a dozen comedians onstage with Barnhart as the ringleader, each performance is kept clean and wholly unique.

Magician/Mentalist Hart Keene


Interactive illusion, mind reading and comedy. Hart performs sophisticated sleight-of-hand, illusion, and mentalism (psychological illusions). He presents this unique blend with charm, quick wit, and humor. Audiences today are very intelligent and the days of the boring, old magic show with cheesy props and spectator humiliation are numbered. Hart’s shows are very interactive and involve different members of the audience.

Mariachi Tleyotltzin


With a group of ten members from ages eleven to twenty-four, we are a very young spirited group. We each bring something different to the group that helps us grow, and learn to accept one another.  We all work towards a common goal as group to inspire the youth, and the community we live in. We try to project our love of mariachi music when performing, and bringing entertainment to our audience while allowing them to embrace something cultural. We each feel that it is important to stay close to our Mexican culture and feel grateful that we are able to show our culture by doing something we love to do.
