Well it’s been a great month with lots of bookings around the UK; I have been performing at Restaurants, Football Clubs, Private Parties and Christenings so it’s been quite hectic.
This month also saw me perform at The Etihad Stadium for a school prom, which is the 5th year I have been booked so it was great to catch up with familiar faces and present my all-new material, which I am glad to say, went down well!
It was also great to work for Kia and help launch their new Kia Sportage. I performed mix and mingle magic and with a range of effects including producing a live fish it was quite the night! I had some lovely feedback about the event and it was a pleasure to be part of another Kia car launch!
I thought it would be good in this blog to touch upon some of the events I perform at. Some people assume I only entertain at weddings however I am more than happy to perform at any event big or small. From christenings to birthday parties and from weddings to large corporate events, whatever event you are planning, close up magic is the perfect entertainment that will provide a great talking point for months after your event has finished.
If you’re a business wanting to make a lasting impression then close-up magic is the perfect tool. With a full range of astounding effects and with options such as personalized playing cards with your logo printed on them, it makes the magic even more memorable. It doesn’t stop there, I am more than happy to incorporate any effects you have in mind. One of the best things about Magic is creating new effects and helping your business stand out from the competition and it makes my job even more interesting and exciting pushing the boundaries to help your business and your event the best yet!
It was very sad to read the news that Paul Daniels has an incurable brain tumor. I have met Paul on more than one occasion and was very lucky to spend the day with him at his home talking magic and gaining so much information from who I believe is one of the most knowledgeable men in Magic.
I first started magic when I was 8 years old because of this man. I still have fond memories of receiving my Paul Daniels Magic set with 32 easy to do tricks. It set me on my way and watching Paul perform with his endless talent, his smooth and slick presentation made the ‘Magic Bug’ grow and grow and all I ever think about is being as flawless a performer as what he was.
I have added a small clip of Paul performing his famous Card In Wallet. From a Magicians point of view it’s nice watching a sleight of hand master perform to such a high standard. Its funny, its entertaining and its just so near to perfect I can only smile watching it.
I was always brought up to do things right, never do half the work, if you want to be the best you have to put the hours in, work the effects, get them so good you could do them in your sleep. This is a true example of all those things, all those hours, all that practice but the results are just exceptional!
Our thoughts and prayers are with one of the most influential Magicians we have had and it was a true honour to learn and talk to the man who knows so much about this special art.
