Times Square Confetti Press

Bill Ferrell Co. Expands Its Confetti Effects Portfolio With the Acquisition of Canada's Kabuki.


Sun Valley, CA / January 2017— Kabuki, the originator of long-flutter confetti design and the CO2 handheld launcher has merged with Times Square Confetti, the artistic confetti effects division of Bill Ferrell Co. The acquisition of the New Brunswick-based Kabuki gives Times Square Confetti a new international client base for the live event trade and online consumer-direct sales. 

"Kabuki started it all," said new parent company owner Bill Ferrell. "Back in 1985, they set out to create dramatic, concert-size confetti for ZZTop. They shook up the old, rag-tag parade cliche and gave it class."

Kabuki devised and standardized the rectangle known today as "slowfall" confetti, and mechanized the precise cut of exceptionally beautiful serpentine streamers. The company experimented with materials, combining "metallic" PVC and biodegradable tissues to create visual depth for TV and film. The Kabuki CO2 handheld confetti and streamer cannon quickly took hold with pros and partiers alike, with Blue Man Group strapping six together for a dynamic, onstage repeat launch system.  

The full line of Kabuki products can now be purchased at factory-direct prices on the Times Square Confetti website. 

Bill Ferrell Company is L.A.'s premier staging firm, providing innovative staging, motion effects, turntables, and warehouse storage solutions for television, film, theater, sports, corporate meetings and the highest profile live events around the country.

X-Streamers Acquired by L.A. Confetti Effects and Event Staging Firm Bill Ferrell Co.


Sun Valley, CA / June 2014— Online confetti retailer X-Streamers.com has been
purchased by Los Angeles’ premier event staging business, Bill Ferrell Co. A
longtime powerhouse in entertainment, Bill Ferrell designed many of the confetti
cannons and launchers used throughout the industry. His firm creates custom
confetti effects for television, film, Broadway, and the highest profile New Year’s
Eve, sporting and political events around the country. The purchase of X-Streamers
extends the 30-year-old company’s share of the confetti effects market beyond its
large-venue business-to-business roots to now include the click-and-buy decisions
of party-planers worldwide.

The expanded product line includes everything from the bulk multicolored confetti
sought for New York’s Times Square celebrations and cruise liner christenings to
the “flick sticks” of high school cheerleaders and the hand-tossed streamers of
backyard birthdays.

“X-Streamers’ Internet operation opens our path to the party-throwers,” Bill Ferrell
said. “Today’s confetti effects are sophisticated. We can fill a concert stadium with
thirty-foot streamers. We can also drop wisps of 'rose petals' at an intimate
wedding. It’s spectacular on any scale.”

Custom color combinations, hand launchers, electric cannons and more are currently available on both billferrell.com and x-streamers.com. Bill Ferrell Co.’s confetti effects team continues to provide consultation services – now to frazzled art directors, wedding planners, Super Bowl revelers and parents of birthday kids alike.
