Lyric & Simon Arestov are a unique pairing with two distinct acts, Rolla Bolla and Vertigo Cube.
Rolla Bolla showcases a domination of balance and acrobatics. This high energy, fast-paced act will have fans on the edge of their seats as Simon stacks more cylinders higher and higher! Balancing not only on his feet but also on his hands in handstand form.
The Vertigo Cube demonstrates the mastery of shape manipulation & dexterity. This exhilarating show will keep your fans engaged & wow them from start to finish. They will be in awe of the speed & skill displayed in this performance.
Gameops.com: What has been your high point thus far as a touring act?
Lyric & Simon Arestov: We’re huge sports fans and performing for NBA and NCAA halftimes is amazing each and every time.
One of our most memorable performances was our very first halftime performance at the Maui Invitational Tournament in Hawaii. Great tournament and the beach was right across the street!
In 2013 we did our very first NBA halftime show, and it was for the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center. We are very grateful for the opportunity they gave us, and we have since performed in Denver for the Mammoth and the Avalanche as well.
One of our favorite games we got to perform at was at the Allen Field House for the University of Kansas.Kansas was ranked #1 and Oklahoma was ranked #2. It was televised on ESPN, Dick Vitale was courtside with the commentary. The sold-out crowd and the energy was insane for the game and our performance. The game went to triple overtime and Kansas won. We’ve never heard a louder building in our life.
Madison Square Garden also holds a very special place in my heart. I’m (Lyric Wallenda Arestov) a 7thgeneration performer of the infamous Wallenda circus family. My family came to America in 1929 & one of the first venues they ever played was MSG w/ Ringling Bros & received a standing ovation for over 10 mins & they had to be brought back to the ring. So, when we have the opportunity to perform where my ancestors did years ago with their great success it’s inspiring for us.
All of the arenas are awesome and special in their own way, but some of our favorites are: Staples Center, MSG, United Center, Pepsi Center, and Amway Center!
Gameops.com: Can you share a low point along the way as you progressed as an act?
Lyric & Simon Arestov: Something we’ve definitely learned along the way is how to travel as light as possible for the long trips and how to be comfortable sleeping in airports/planes on red-eyes.
Gameops.com: What makes your show special for teams?
Lyric & Simon Arestov: We’ve been performing our entire life. We touched on my background as a Wallenda earlier, but Simon is a 2nd generation circus performer. He debuted at 10 months old in The Great Moscow State Circus in Moscow where his parents performed & toured with the show for over 20 years. Simon then decided to pursue his performance career in North America & left for Canada & the U.S. in 1991.
Beyond our historic performance backgrounds, we present a high energy and high skill balancing act choreographed to the music, and we always try to customize our wardrobe to match the teams colors. Being a balancing act that’s set on a 6 foot pedestal it has the fans on the edge of their seat the entire time as Simon stacks his cylinders higher and higher.
We also provide a unique budget saving opportunity for teams/schools, since we can travel & offer two different acts for back to back games, men’s & women’s doubleheaders, or for games within a few days of each other.
