If you’re planning on having us perform indoors with fire (instead of LED/glow), you’ll need fire performer event insurance. This ranges in price depending on the event structure and the size of the audience. We have prior experience with, and highly recommend, Jeff Nahnybida for event insurance at HSM Insurance.
