Beale Street Tonight 

The Beale Street Flippers have made a name for themselves in Memphis and across the U.S., wowing audiences with their acrobatics. The founder, Rarecas Bonds, 26, has been somersaulting in the street since he was a young boy and flipped down Beale with Tom Cruise in the 1993 film The Firm. Bonds, his brother Tommie, 21, and Jessie Williams, 20, perform at NBA and WNBA half-time shows, corporate events, and private parties. And while they have been taking their act abroad, the Beale Street Flippers continue to impress tourists and locals on Beale.
