Born and raised in Gary Indiana, Al Fuentes has over 25 years of experience as an entertainer, producer, and creative director. His love for the industry started in high school where he performed in several theatrical productions such as “West Side Story” and “Jesus Christ Superstar”. His passion for the arts continued onto Robert Morris College performing in “Rex”, at the same time searching for his place in the entertainment industry. “I was young and full of energy, I knew I wanted to perform in front of big crowds, but I just needed an opportunity”, he says.
In 1991 Al Fuentes auditioned for the first ever entertainment interactive squads for the World Champion Chicago Bulls called “The Incredi-Bulls”. This opportunity would change his life forever. Today Al Fuentes has worked in the sports industry for close to 30 years. He currently works with the Orlando Magic entertainment team the “Blue Crew” as a lead and instructor. He has performed all over the world including England, Japan, Turkey, Germany, France, Italy and even Dubai.
