Putting More Magic Into Vegas

It has taken us weeks to plan, decide, pull, pack, label and ready everything for our booth at Magic LIVE.

Lindsey, Max’s girlfriend and a buddy of Tim’s, Rob Rasner, a magician from Los Angeles have been helping us this week in getting everything ready for our big trip to Las Vegas.

Lots to get packed for the big Vegas trip.

Tim leaves with the truck on Saturday morning, so we’re working feverishly to get everything travel-worthy and ready to load as of Friday.

I somehow forget how much work it really is until we begin the colossal process of putting it all together. And this year, we’re bringing more collectible and estate magic than EVER before.

Ready for shipment to Las Vegas.

Guest Demonstrators Abound

Remember, there will actually be six of us coming from Hocus Pocus as well as a variety of guest demonstrators demonstrating their wares including;

  • Kyle Marlett demonstrating Shop Put
  • Jeff Kaylor demonstrating TKO 2.0 and the Ultimate Networking Tool
  • Giovanni Livera demonstrating Rope, Nut & Knot and Salt & Silver
  • Alex Pandera demonstrating Bandito, Hucko Steal & Maestro
  • Jeff Prace demonstrating Silencer
  • Gimmick Magic demonstrating Escape, Six, and E-Race
Alert the media; Hocus Pocus in on the way to Vegas!

The guest demonstrators will be featured for several hours, each of the four days of the convention, so there’s ALWAYS a good reason to stop by and see what’s happening at the Hocus Pocus booth.

We put Laurent on the Yogano Chair Levitation.

As mentioned in last week’s blog, Wayne Dobson will be in our booth throughout the run of the convention demonstrating several of his newest effects. So please stop by and meet the legend himself.

The French Connection 

We had a visitor from France this week, Laurent Berretta from France who was in Los Angeles on business and wanted to leave a few things with us for consignment.

Laurent is without doubt one of Europe’s finest manipulators and magical talents.  Talent that has seen him perform the world over on live shows, corporate events and prestigious TV shows such as Le Plus Grande Cabaret du Monde and won him the Monte Carlo Magic Stars Grande Prize awarded to him by Prince Albert of Monaco.

You couldn’t meet a nicer guy. In fact, for being so incredibly talented and celebrated, Laurent is remarkably, warm, friendly and unpretentious. Hopefully, he can make it to Magic LIVE.

Paul, Tim and Rob say good-bye to Laurent.

You just never know who’s going to stop in to the shop.

Hope to see many of you at the convention. Otherwise, stay tuned to the blog and I’ll give you a full report.

I’d better get back to work. There’s so much more to do.

See you soon.

Until next time,

Paul
