"The merfolk we got from Dark Tide Productions were fin-tastic!  Having them in the fountain at Grand Park was a magical, memorable way to add dazzle and delight to the AIDS Walk Los Angeles Finish Line.  The actors were so agreeable and patient with our participants.  We are so appreciative."

Ree Merrill — Donor Relations Coordinator, Wolf Connection

"Jax and his team at Dark Tide Productions put on the experience of a lifetime for us at Wolf Connection. The makeup, costumes, decorations and overall artistry was of the highest quality. They are true professionals that love what they do and it reflects in their work. Their passion comes through not only in their show, but in their incredible performances! Wonderful artists with huge hearts!!!"

Eddie Shapiro — Co-Founder & Producer, Gay Days Anaheim

"The mer-folk of Dark Tide Productions add that certain unexpected magical zing to our annual pool party. Yes, we have all the usual elements: décor, DJ, hot-bodied people in skimpy suits; but the mer-folk are such an unusual and whimsical addition, they tip the scales for us to the level of fabulous! Plus, in their human incarnations, they couldn’t be nicer, easier to work with, or more professional.  I’d be a happy guest at any party at which they are frolicking."
