How do I book Grinder Gordie and what does he cost?
The short answer on cost is usually nothing - I try to volunteer and support local Non-Profits in West Michigan. Anything is possible for FUN activities. I am available for a modest performance fee for Commercial and For-Profit entities - please contact me to discuss the particulars of your event, dates and availability - THANKS!
What type activities are considered FUN events?
Just about anything where festive music is desired and lots of spectators and families are expected. An organ grinder is a grounds attraction or People Magnet attracting families to its sight and lively music. Audience participation is highly encouraged with the cranking of music - a truly unique and memorable experience for all ages – an absolute joy for cell phone video makers!
