Tricks of my Trade June 2008

Middle TN Magic Happenings in June!

Hello all. June is upon us, and you know what that means – Baseball, Cookouts, and Magical events and happenings!

If you like to be amazed and entertained then you are in luck! June brings the launch of a new theatrical magic and illusion show starring a pair Nashville’s premier illusionists, Lonny Divine and yours truly!

Lonny and I will be teaming up to present Larger Than Life at the Center For The Arts in Murfreesboro June 27, 28, and 29th! Larger Than Life is a celebration of dreams and the escape from reality. The show fuses amazing magic and illusion, powerful vocal music, high energy dance, and unforgettable, larger than life characters that do amazing and impossible things. The show is geared towards grown-up audiences, so it is the perfect opportunity for parents to get a sitter for the kids and have a fun night out together!

For those of you unfamiliar with my magic, I perform theatrical presentations that fuse magic and music. I’m an international award-winning magician, and I’ve been all over the world and on national TV several times. Lonny Divine is also an award-winning illusionist specializing in sleight of hand magic, and like me adds an unique theatrical presentation to his magic. Accompanying us are our backup dancers “The Kittens.”

Show times are 8 PM on June 27 and 28, and 3 PM on June 29. Tickets are just $12 in advance, $15 at the door. To reserve tickets call the Center for the Arts at 615-904-ARTS.

For those who are interested in learning magic, Nashville based magicians Jason Michaels and Scott Cantrell have created a web-based learning resource at Members of the site can learn and study magic with one on one video sessions with Scott or Jason. It is a very cool and sleek website, so take a look!

And for those who are already performing magicians, but want to hone their skills, Vegas headliner Fielding West will present a teaching lecture hosted by the Nashville Magic Club. Fielding West is not only a magician's magician, but he possesses that very rare and impeccable sense of comedic timing that has landed him the opening spot for some of the biggest names in show business. A winner in the prestigious Desert Magic Seminar's Comedy Magic competition, Fielding has opened the show for such A-list celebrities as Liza Minelli, Glen Campbell and dozens more.
Fielding will be lecturing for the Nashville Magic Club Thursday June 12th at 7:00pm in the It's Magic! Theater. Admission for the lecture is $5 for NMC Members, $15 for Non-Members. For more information, visit
