I kicked off April by flying to Atlanta to do another Penguin Magic Live event. I was lucky to be working along side the best of the best. It was myself, Danny Garcia, Michael Weber, Chad Long, Dan Harlan, Brent Braun, Gazzo and more. We performed on Friday night and lectured on Saturday. The crowd of about 200 was enthusiastic and fun! It was great seeing old friends and making new ones. We do it again in late June and return to Newark, NJ.
Once again I’ve had several house projects, poker tournaments, attendances at the Peacock theater and have been working many private shows. Some of my clients recently were a classic radio station, Meals on Wheels and Southwest Airlines. A friend of mine owns a few bars and has had me work at The Velvet Elvis and tonight I’ll perform at The Local Public House. Both are biker bars and I have learned over 30 years of performing that bikers go crazy for my magic typically.
One gig was especially sweet. I made a friend playing poker named Jeff. Jeff told me he wanted to marry his girlfriend Terri and come up with a magical proposal. Since they both met playing poker we arranged it where I would “magically” deal her favorite hand the King and Queen of Hearts and follow it up on the board with a Royal Flush. The last two cards blew her mind and luckily she said yes! I’m happy for both of them.
I have some friends that I consider family basically. I love the whole lot of them. My buddy Woody, who has since passed, I’m sure enjoys watching our relationships blossom. I have spent holidays and graduations with them recently. I’m proud of all of them and especially Rylee who just graduated and swept the sports awards banquet. She is going to school on a basketball scholarship. I was shocked to see she quoted me in her high school year book. This young lady will go far and I know she will succeed in her quests.
