SBF Star

Read Michel Rios's interview
SBF's latest Star is:

Read Michel's Meet the Star interview...

Meet SBF Star, Michel Rios, of the Rios Brothers, as they are known in showbusiness, a France based circus duet.
Their father, Djamaa Ben Lahoussine, headed a well-known troupe of Moroccan tumblers, The Rios, from which the brothers have retained their stage name.
A few years after their debut as "Icarists", the Rios Brothers elevated their Risley act to the next level, refining their skills to unprecedented perfection, thus bringing their act right to the forefront and making it the new standard of reference, which it still is today, as most Risley duets are built on the model set by Michel and Mehdi.
Subsequently their career has evolved into Revue productions, which they have exported all over the world.
Read this interview and find out about how their transition from being solidly established Icarists to becoming show makers occurred...

Bluebell Girl & Kelly Boy REUNION!!!

Lido, Paris After the hugely successful 2010 Reunion held at the Lido, Paris and by great demand of many SBF Members, ShowBiz Friends is "strongly" considering organizing an encore in 2014/2015.

Obviously the first step is to ask all SBF Members who are potentially interested in it.

Here's to the New Reunion! So, the Big question for you is: WHEN?
In other words:

  • Would you prefer the Reunion to be while the present Lido show, Bonheur is still on?

  • Would you prefer the Reunion to be after the new Lido show starts?

  • Please, CLICK HERE and let us know your thoughts!
