For years the Harlem Rockets have been thrilling fans with their unique combination of basketball skills, zany comedy and audience participation. This group of highly talented former college and professional basketball players specializes in supporting fundraisers for schools, charities and civic organizations. Adding even more enthusiasm to the event, the Harlem Rockets' opponents come from the local community! The Harlem Rockets basketball organization prides itself in providing a high quality entertainment show for the entire family - at very modest expense. Book the fabulous Harlem Rockets and you will experience first hand why so many people agree that "The comedy will take you back, the basketball will send you beyond".

The Harlem Rockets also offer their services to the community school system on the weekday of each game. Having made arrangements with the schools, Johnny "Magic" Dadzie and The Harlem Rockets will visit the schools to put on demonstrations of their comedic tricks and talents. After each performance, they present an educational message to students regarding staying in school, peer pressure, and drug and alcohol abuse.

The Harlem Rockets halftime show is second to none. Twenty to thirty children are gathered from the audience to participate in the halftime fun. Led by ball-handling wizard Johnny "Magic" Dadzie, children test their basketball skills until there are two finalists, a boy and a girl who receive prizes for their efforts. Involving children in their community is always a crowd pleaser.

The magic comes alive at each event as The Rockets go through their series of antics and comedy routines. Direct audience participation is an important aspect of each Harlem Rockets show that brings in the audience as a part of each event. After each event, the team makes themselves available for autographs and picture-taking opportunities.

The Harlem Rockets are also available as entertainment and education at corporate events, reunions, annual picnics, bar-mitzvas and other occasions. Are YOU ready to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity?
