Bounce Music and Entertainment supplied actors dressed as poor immigrants for a corporate event held at Ellis Island.
As guests arrived, the peasants rode the boats with them, acting out the kind of discussions that real immigrants might have had. And on arrival at the island the guests were met by "peasant" musicians including an Irish tenor and a small klezmer group.
It's the kind of business that Vali is looking to do more of at Bounce. He is, for instance, looking to produce a full scale script that the "peasants" could follow for such events. [Link, via Megan's Roots World]
