    The Amazing Bubble Show

    Start Date: Sunday 12/16/2018 — End Date: Sunday 12/16/2018
    Admission:$15/Adult; $10/Kid (12 and under)

    Thrilling audiences around the world for nearly 30 years with the art, magic, science and fun of bubbles, the Amazing Bubble Man (a.k.a. Louis Pearl) explores the breath-taking dynamics of bubbles. Combining comedy and artistry with audience participation and enough spellbinding bubble tricks to keep both kids and adults alike mesmerized, this show is fun for all ages. From square bubbles, bubbles inside bubbles, fog-filled bubbles, giant bubbles, bubble volcanoes, and people inside bubbles, the Amazing Bubble Man conjures shrieks of laughter and gasps of amazement. “Greatest bubble show on Earth.” –SFGate.com “It’s a fantastic show. Louis Pearl playfully forms bubbles beyond imagination, and engages the audience with his easygoing non-verbal slapstick.” “Louis Pearl — a.k.a. The Amazing Bubble Man — truly deserves his title. Most of the show is accompanied by gasps and awes…and that’s just the adults. Kids can be heard giggling with excitement.” “This show captivated its young audience and the adults loved it as well. Highly recommended.” –British Theater Guide

    Location: 2513 Blanding Ave Alameda

    Admission:From $25

    Fronted by the magnetic, soulful vocalist Lilan Kane (pronounced LEE - lawn), Hella Fitzgerald is a rollicking six-piece band bringing an infectious energy to vintage jazz, swing, jump blues, and classic soul styles. Tonight they present a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, the legendary “First Lady of Song” who inspired their name.

    The Oakland-based Kane is a graduate of Boston’s Berklee School of Music whose sound flows through the heartfelt original compositions, telling stories of love, loss, and self-discovery while they seamlessly blend R&B, funk, pop, and jazz. She has worked with the Jazz Mafia’s Cosa Nostra Strings and has recently released her debut album Love, Myself to a sold out crowd at Yoshi’s Jazz Club.

    In addition to performing, Kane is a dedicated educator, having co-founded the Own the Mic summer singing camp at Marin’s San Domenico School.
