Randy Ry­der re­turns with risky ren­di­tion

Central and North Burnett Times - - MT PERRY SHOW ADVERTISING FEATURE -

THE Mt Perry Show won’t go on with­out some nail­bit­ing stunt ac­tion – and Eljay Freestyle En­ter­tain­ment is go­ing to bring it.

Dubbed one of Aus­tralia’s most re­spected mo­tor­cy­cle and bi­cy­cle stunt shows, the Eljay show will fea­ture tal­ented char­ac­ters Randy Ry­der and Freddy “Bigtime” Sas­safraz. If ac­tion and com­edy sound like the per­fect com­bi­na­tion, don’t miss their 5pm dis­play.

Not only will crowds see some grav­ity-de­fy­ing moves but, in a unique twist, this stunt show is packed with comic re­lief.

Using bikes with­out seats, the pas­sion­ate per­form­ers also spend the en­tirety of the show stand­ing up.

“I love en­ter­tain­ing peo­ple, so be­ing able to ride bikes at the same time is an amaz­ing way to live my life,” owner and per­former Eljay Driessens said.

Bur­nett lo­cals would have seen these stunt rid­ers when they last per­formed at the Mt Perry Show a few years ago, and they’re ex­cited to be back.

“The at­mos­phere was great,” Driessens said.

“At some shows peo­ple can be a lit­tle re­served but we love that Mt Perry re­ally get be­hind us, even laugh­ing at our corni­est jokes.”

For any­one who saw the Eljay show last time it vis­ited the re­gion they can ex­pect a new and im­proved ver­sion.

“We have some new bits and pieces and a new com­edy skit to go with the stunts,” Driessens said.

“It’s go­ing to be some­thing fresh for Mt Perry to see.”

Based around a pur­pose-built, por­ta­ble ramp struc­ture, the per­for­mances are all chore­ographed to up­beat sound tracks.

Eljay Freestyle En­ter­tain­ment was founded in 1997 by Driessens when he was still in high school.

He has since per­formed more than 4000 shows Aus­tralia-wide.
