The Flairaholiks can adapt to any party environment from fun wedding receptions to crazy luaus. We flair, anytime, anyplace, anywhere, just tell us where the party is.
James is the only member of the Flairaholiks, who once traded his parents' boat for a portable, height adjustable basketball goal. Some people will tell you that he developed his amazing bartending skills through countless hours of hard work, dedication, practice, and a diet of Flintstone's vitamins, but James would have you believe that his skills were a gift from the gods for driving a crocodile/human crossbreed gang out of Australia during an over night stay in 2001(even though everyone knows the croc/humans weren't driven out of Australia until mid-December 2003.) James has been working his current trade as a bartender for the last four years and working for NASA for the last... you know what, forget it... just forget get it... (sigh!)
