El­jay show a hit at Show Whit­sun­day

Whitsunday Times - - DRIVE -

CROWDS at Show Whit­sun­day were kept en­ter­tained with the grav­ity-de­fy­ing an­tics of the El­jay Freestyle En­ter­tain­ment show.

Tal­ented sib­lings El­jay and Mor­gan Driessens de­lighted au­di­ences with a se­ries of aerial stunts and tricks on their cus­tom built mo­tor­bike and BMX bikes.

Older sib­ling El­jay has been work­ing in the in­dus­try for a num­ber of years, and his lat­est show with younger brother Mor­gan has seen them travel across the coun­try since the team’s in­cep­tion three years ago.

“We were stoked to be in­vited to Show Whit­sun­day to per­form for ev­ery­one and we had some re­ally good crowds over the week­end,” he said.

“Ev­ery­one seemed to en­joy them­selves and Fri­day night in par­tic­u­lar was a re­ally good show with the crowd mak­ing plenty of noise.”

The broth­ers travel right across Aus­tralia to per­form their show and are dart­ing down to the Mt Lar­com show just south of Rock­hamp­ton be­fore re­turn­ing to per­form in a num­ber of North Queens­land shows.

The El­jay show was a ma­jor hit with show go­ers on both days and the boys ended their dis­play by col­lect­ing do­na­tions for the Make a Wish foun­da­tion.

“I ap­proached Make a Wish when I started up the El­jay show three years ago and it’s great we can use our show to help make the lives of sick kids that lit­tle bit bet­ter,” Mr Driessens said.
