The Miami Mermaids have been putting the splash in people's lives for over a decade.
Now it's your chance to go behind the scenes to see what it's like to be a real mermaid!
Peruse at your leisure our diary of mermaiding over the years creating stories to be told & shared.
Circa 2013 // Sony asked four world-renowned photographers such as Brian Smith to create a visual story using creativity and technology. Brian's idea was to tell a story through mermaids! He called us!!!
To see the Miami Mermaid segment watch at 2:22, (but please watch the whole thing - it's great!) the video was filmed with the Sony Cyber-shot RX1 Camera, Profoto Acute 600B with Profoto Softlight Reflector. © By Brian Smith.com
Once upon a time, there was a tiny little island in the middle of Miami's Biscayne Bay that achieved its 15 minutes of fame and then some! TV stations and newspapers followed this story for days begging the question... how did a baby grand piano show up on this tiny island?
The mysterious baby grand piano appeared on it's shores one night.
We had to go see it for ourselves so we chartered a boat and took photographers Bill Cooke and Joann Biondi to capture the moments. As history has it, we were the very last group to be there before the baby grand was whisked away & removed forever! It's still unknown where the baby grand is today. If you know, drop up a line!
Own a piece of history, there are still a small number of signed posters left!
Circa 2009 // We love a challenge +Vampire Wine, so we entered their viral video contest! We won first place and lots of cases of Vampire Wine along with the notability of being their "poster mermaids."
Behind the scenes // The video was shot on Key Biscayne by Ed Fiol , produced by SparkleYourSpace.com, and narration by Joann Biondi. The video opens with a familur sonar sound and a kick'in tune featuring a boat making waves. Next you see the Miami Mermaids on the shore line enjoying a bottle of Vampire Pinot Noir while wearing their best black tails and net accessories. Edgy than 1000 bats on a full moon night, the Miami Mermaids killed - watch to see for yourself!
Circa 2009 // The Miami Mermaids.net are a unique trio of merpeople bringing you sensational fun and a unique blend of ambiance. They are located in Miami, but have traveled to fabulous places like the Hamptons and the exclusive Mar-a-Lago. Let them travel to you!
Circa 2009 // With over 10K views this was our 4th ANNUAL Halloween eBay auction (we LOVE Halloween!) The lucky auction winner got the Miami Mermaids as "mermaid vampires" to swim at their Halloween party! The spot ran on 610 WIOD radio on the Jorge Rodriguez show (ie. from the Neil Rodgers show) with none other than Boca Brian doing the narrative spooky voice. Click on the video to read more!
We never leave home without it...our official lime green waterproof Miami Mermaid travel case. It has frequent flyer miles along with the scrapes and scratches of years and years of trusty use.
But there's a funny story never told until now! We had a Valentine's gig at the beautiful Coral Gables Biltmore Hotel and somehow our trusty case would not unlock! With only moments to go until we went on, the only thing we found to pick the lock was a restaurant knife! We tried jumping on the case, but ricocheted off it. Atlast, it opened. We hurriedly put the rest of our accessories on then jumped in the pool - no one knew! The ppol was FREEZING and was our coldest swim ever, but aleast the gig went on becasue we were able to open our "trusty" green case. LOL
Circa 2011 & 2018 // Burning Man is a desolate, but creative and fun place that is located way out west in Black Rock, New Mexico. It has no water and is extremely dusty and the Miami Mermaids made not one trip, but two. We wore "desert mermaid tails" and dedicated an entire day of posing with other "Burners." Everyone loved posing with the mermaids and were able to download all the photos! )'(
