If you are a baseball fan and have never seen a coach breakdancing in the middle of a game, an umpire dancing before calling a play, or a male cheerleading team, you don’t know the Savannah Bananas. And that, my friend, means you are missing a lot.
In this episode, I’m delighted to welcome Jesse Cole, Founder of Fans First Entertainment and owner and operator of the Savannah Bananas. Jesse is also the author of “Fans first” and “Find your yellow tux,” “Banana Ball,” and a Keynote Speaker who dedicated most of his life to creating extraordinary and unique experiences for the fans.
Throughout our conversation, we talk about Jesse’s commitment to creating memorable experiences every time the Bananas get in the pitch and the idea of treating the Savannah Bananas presentations as a spectacle that will never be completed. Jesse shared details of how they keep their shows fresh and entertaining, the attractions that didn’t work very well, and his constantly exploring and trying new things mindset.
Plus, Jesse talks about his mentors, what to expect from the Bananas in the future, and so much more.
