Party Tips:

Once the work is done, relax! Let your guests enjoy themselves. With the proper ingredients in place everyone should have a great time. With good food, good cheer and good friends you can't miss! Party hearty and have fun. Make room for guests who have had too much to eat or drink. Don't let a guest who over drinks drive, it could save a life and it could save YOU from a lawsuit. As the host, you are responsible for the safety of your guests.

Misers aren't much fun to live with, but they make great ancestors.

A little Magic History: more history

Lance Burton was born in Kentucky on March 10, 1960. He first became interested in magic on his sixth birthday when his parents took him to a Christmas party where the featured performer was a magician. The magic magician asked for a volunteer and Lance bolted up onto stage. He saw the magician perform the trick known as "The Miser's Dream," where coins were pulled out of the spectator's ear, and lance knew that is what he wanted in life and nothing would deter him from it.

Strolling Magic is a great conversation starter. People will turn to each other and talk about what they have just seen. Monty will mingle with your guests during the social or cocktail hour performing magic for small groups. This is very personal -- a delightful touch. Your group will receive professional entertainment highlighted by humor, mystery, and audience involvement.

Strolling Magic doesn't interrupt the flow of events. The magic happens up close - some of it happens in the spectator's hands. The magic can be done anywhere and under just about any conditions. No lighting, staging, or sound equipment is required. Strolling Magic is ideal as an ice-breaker at conferences, hospitality suites, banquets or parties, where noise levels may be high, or there is no room for alternative types of entertainment. Start planning a little magic for your next event.

Tips for Magicians:

Volunteering for non-for-profit venues


Volunteer to do your magic show for non-for-profit organizations as often as you can; its the best way to gain experience and to make yourself known. Hospitals, care homes, charity fundraisers and schools can give you a lot of "free" promotion.  

Magical Creatures:

Simurgh

Simurgh first started out as a lion-bodied bird but eventually turned all bird. Simurgh is said to live at the Tree of Knowledge whose branches have the seed of every plant that has ever existed. This Persian bird is believed to have a magical touch that heals on contact, and have seen the world destroyed and created three times, thus having the knowledge of every age that has existed. Simurgh is said to be so large it can carry an elephant. It is also known to take children to nurse or adopt.

Secrets to magic:

I got the rose video today and watched it right away.  It was awesome, I really liked the flash rose transformation and the first routine with the kicker rose splitting ending.  Thank you so much for offering this great product and going the extra mile to make sure I got it in time for valentine's day. -- Ryan Morrison
