Triple Change!

Just enough time for a quickie before heading out for a gig!

This is my favorite sequence from Marion Boykin's Copper/Silver-Surprise! It's a fantastic routine that delivers hit after hit of strong magic. You can find it in his excellent Short Pockets download from VinnyMarini.com! I used it all Sunday night at my gig at Otto's Pub and Brewery here in State College, PA.

3 coins, 3 nations, 1 killer effect!

Restaurant Coin Magic

I am now the Resident Magician at two local restaurants. One is a locally-owned brew pub, the other a national chain featuring wings and beer. I've been playing with different coin routines each night to see what kind of reactions I get and for ways to improve upon the routine for maximum deception, entertainment, and how easily it resets.

I'll try out a different coin routine each night and then post a review of how each piece went and any modifications I made to it.

Tonight I'll be using Craig Petty's Cartoon Coins from his DVD Flipped Out. Here's a clip from the DVD...

The Master in Action: J.B. Bobo!

J.B. Bobo, author of Modern Coin Magic and the guy who started it all. This is a clip from an OLD Stevens Magic Emporium video featuring a couple of the coin vanishes from his classic book. The quality is a bit lacking, but the vanishes look great!
Don't ya wish you had that jacket?
