Show Production and Design
American Fireworks will provide professional, computerized scripting of the entire fireworks display. We will utilize coordinated segments, matching like colors and effects, to create a variety of spectacular scenes for the crowd. The entire display can be fired electronically, so that we make sure there is no dead sky!!!
Show Segments and Highlights
The choreography of the aerial display will utilize several segments, including:
Patriotic—Five different segments utilizing red, white, and blue shells with various effects. These segments will be distributed throughout the show as detailed in the program and will be approximately 20 seconds in duration each.
The Fast and Furious—Will include several segments that will build in intensity throughout the show, culminating in a spectacular Finale (Pre-Finale and Grand Finale) that will be over 4 minutes in duration! An abundance of thundering, fast-breaking shells will be utilized in these segments (Crossettes, titanium salutes, tourbillions, peonies, and fish).
Soft and Slow— During these segments we will utilize soft-breaking, long duration shells such as arcing comets, brilliant glitters, willows, kamuros, and brocades.
Silver and Gold—No fireworks production would be complete without a glittering array of silver and gold effects. We will utilize coconut shells, flitter shells, and gold brocades to present curtains of brilliant golds and silvers to the crowd.
American Specialties—These segments will utilize specialty shells that will provide the crowd with many opportunities for "ooohs" and "aaahs." Color changing chrysanthemums, multiple-ring shells, pattern shells, and whistles are among the favorites that will be accentuated here.

American Fireworks History
In 1899, a young man named Vincenzo Sorgi decided to leave his home in Avenzzano, Italy and come to the United States. After a series of jobs, the last of which was laying track for the Pennsylvania Railroad, he found himself in Hudson, Ohio. In 1902 he started the American Fireworks Company and became the fourth generation of his family to be involved in the field of pyrotechnics.
Starting out in one small building, he quickly gained recognition for his handmade products of beauty and quality. In 1929, "Jimmy the Bomb" (as his friends referred to him) gained worldwide recognition by becoming one of the first attempting to shoot a rocket to the moon. Though never achieving his goal, his designs and plans closely parallel those used today and he was regarded as an innovator, well ahead of his time.
Today, over a century later, things at American Fireworks have changed very little. The business is still family owned and operated. Vincenzo’s son Jim and grandson John guided it from the late 20’s to the early 2000’s; they were the fifth and sixth generations of the Sorgi fireworks family. Now, over a hundred years later, Jim’s wife Nancy, John’s wife Mercy and the seventh generation of Sorgi’s, his three great grandsons Jamie, John and Roberto, are carrying on the family’s passion. Over their seven generations they have always tried to raise the bar in terms of quality and most importantly safety.Vincenzo's one building on 1/2 acre has grown into more than 60 buildings on 70 acres. Customers that numbered no more than a dozen are now in the thousands. Yet the special formulas, handmade craftsmanship, and unique touch for each show are still hallmarks of the company. Although they are no longer trying to shoot rockets to the moon, their firework displays are still like Vincenzo said, “ahead of their time.”
