Becoming the Best Society Entertainer Magician You Can Be

“First think as an entertainer, then as a magician”

Any one can learn and do a magic “trick”, but to take a trick and turn it into an amazing performance is one of the keys to performing great magic. May I suggest most people DO NOT like to feel as though they have been “tricked” or “fooled”, instead they like to know they have taken part in good entertainment.

Have you asked yourself why you want to do “magic Tricks”? Is it for the fame and fortune or because you have a passion to entertain?

“First think as an entertainer, then as a magician”

As New York Based Master Society Entertainer Magician Simon Lovell states “Magicians worry about ‘How do I do it?’ Instead of ‘Why’ do I do it? There in lies one of the biggest problems — there has to be a reason. Magic intrinsically is an illogical thing, but you can do it at least in a logical way. You ask, what is more important to me — an audience remembering me or the tricks I perform? I would rather them remember me than the tricks I perform. It is essential to create uniqueness about yourself – separate yourself from the masses”

Personal Case Study:

While at a cookout this past summer I was talking with the host and he wished for me to entertain the guests, excluding himself; as he told me “I am not fond of ‘magic’, I do not enjoy it”. Like this gentleman, there are those who honestly do not enjoy watching magic, but not liking magic is not a bad thing.

In a case like this DO NOT SAY “BUT, YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN ME PERFORM” (Unless of course in that same sentence you have the ability to make a 2 ton elephant appear in his swimming pool and cause a parade of camels to march through the picnic area. If you do possess this power, I will caution, he may call upon a local minister to perform an exorcism).

In this scenario for instance I asked VERY un-aggressively “Have you ever seen a live licensed society entertainer close-up magician?” To this he said, “Yes” (In a sarcastic, –… “magic is only a good idea for children’s birthday parties”… type of tone). His comment did not offend me as I have heard this before; I responded to him with “So you have not seen an “impressive” sleight of hand artist?” To this he said “No, the magicians I have seen seemed OK for kid’s but too cheesy and dated for me.”

“First think as an entertainer, then as a magician”

After some time walking around performing for his picnic guests, I approached him and asked if he would consider giving me his honest opinion of something I have been working on and if he would think it is up to par to perform for his friends? He said, “Sure, go ahead.” Fast forward a few hours: by the evening’s end he was requesting I perform for “this individual and that one over there, oh and they would love the one you just did with me.” Like this individual, most people have seen the “pick any card TRICK” and “make six piles TRICK”, etc. Remember, become an entertainer, not just a magician (trickster).

CHILDREN’S PARTIES

During my children’s birthday party magic shows I entertain the adults as much as the children, part of my guarantee! is ALL THEIR GUESTS WILL BE TRULY ENTERTAINED OR THEY PAY ME NOTHING! I have NEVER had any one take me up on this offer…EVER (Humbly Stated).

Usually as the guests are arriving (at a kid’s birthday party) I will do some walk around magic (A FREE BONUS), the client loves this as there is NO dead space and you have even more opportunity to connect with the adults and children before “show” time. The parents in attendance like to know who is entertaining their children. When I perform what I call “Maryland Style Close-Up Magic” for the parents, they receive a better glimpse into who I am and they are not “just” at a “child’s birthday party” anymore.

“First think as an entertainer, then as a magician”

Some times while doing this type of walk around I will maybe have one or two of the laid back, cool, brew drinking guys and their buddies saying (as I approach) “No, go show the tricks to the kids, I do not want to see any of that stuff it is for children.” I may come back with “Oh, you know I have been working on a few things for this show, for the kid’s,” (I will usually look around as if I am sharing an intimate secrete with them) and suggest, “would you mind/ be so kind to allow me to show you something I may want to perform for the children, you be the judge. Let me know if you think the children will enjoy this or not.”

At this point I present Master Magic Creator John Kennedy’s “Mystery Box”, Blizzard Deck from Master Magician Dean Dill of Los Angeles California or maybe some mentalism (Mind-Reading) / card sleights of Dai Vernon (AKA The Professor). The response to these is ALWAYS phenomenal!!! Why? I first think as an entertainer, then as a magician”. These guys always ask to see more and then to show more of this amazing magic to their friends. I also find they get better involved when it comes to the “kid’s” part of the show! They are now the ones taking a front row seat.

WHY PERFORM MAGIC TRICKS

You may go into a Baltimore, Maryland magic shop and purchase the newest, neatest, trick on the market. After you get it home, the package ripped open, you can hardly contain the excitement, you read the directions, go through the routine a couple times and then run out of your room showing your parents, husband, wife and/ or children. Showing off your “skills” you now possess with your T.T., Professors Nightmare, and a stripper deck.

Your friends encourage you and say…”wow”… that is neat, your parents tell you “You are the best magician they have ever seen” and because you have a few weeks of “practice” and have bought 15 of the “coolest” tricks sold in a local magic studio today you believe you are “ready” to perform as a professional. You make business cards with your name stating you do kids birthday parties, etc. Now you are going to be making money.

PLEASE! STOP! STOP! STOP! STOP! STOP! STOP! STOP! STOP!

First, have you taken time to consider why you want to do “magic Tricks”? Is it for the fame and fortune? If I asked if you know who David Blaine and David Copperfield are, you would not hesitate to say “they are famous and wealthy magicians.” Right you would be. But if I were to ask you if you knew the name of Puck, Scott Alexander or Dennis Haney to name a few?

Your reply may be “who is Puck, Scott Alexander or Dennis Haney? Why haven’t I heard of them?” I say to you “They are amazing magicians.” You reply, “if they are so amazing, I would have at least seen them on TV.” The answer to your last statement is simple — they have been working, and practicing, taking advice, practicing, learning, creating, performing and practicing.

Scott Alexander has been a top pro for many years and one of the busiest professionals in the world. His credits include Denny & Lee, Malone’s Bar in Boca, cruise ships all over the world, Caesar Magical Empire, and now he is starring in his own show at Fitzgerald’s in Las Vegas. His style is simple — comedy that goes right to the center of the audience’s brain.

Master entertainer magician Puck headlines around the globe traveling from Orlando, FL one of the most sought after entertainers in the nation.

Dennis Haney is one of the most “famous” of all three named here. He owns two magic shops/ studios one is local in Baltimore, Maryland and the other in Las Vegas, Nevada – his tag line is: “Where the pros shop”; Mr. Haney is among the who’s who in the world of magic / entertainment (worldwide).

If you try and follow fame and fortune more than likely you will be as Client Eastwood so calmly said in one of his movies “You are a legend in your own mind.” Do not pursue fame and fortune, let it find you. Keep on practicing, rehearsing, reading and listening to those in the trenches, learn from their mistakes and their victories. Did David Copperfield “just appear” on the scene? (bad play on words, I know but hey…it is a free article what do you expect), no, he was practicing over and over again. Practice does not make perfect, as one individual told me some time ago, “perfect practice makes perfect.”

“First think as an entertainer, then as a magician”

Practice, practice and then practice some more. Once you have practiced several times, multiplied by 10 then go into your nearest magic shop, or to a local full time magician and show them what you have been working on, you have two ears and one mouth, use the first two and not the last one, listen to what they have to say. Go back and practice, oh, by the way have I stated to you you must practice? (I say this with a curious grin).

The Advantages of Using an Entertainment Directory

If you are into entertaining friends, colleagues, and family a lot of you need to know the places where you can entertain them in style. There are many places you can take them out. There are restaurants, hotels, and places of amusements where you can entertain them. Trying to locate an appropriate place may become difficult at times, and you may need to thumb through the local yellow pages; and this is a chore. This is where an appropriate entertainment directory comes in quite handy.

Business And Social Entertainment

One of the best ways to wind up a hard day’s negotiations with your clients and customers is to take them out for an evening of drinks or meals. The best way to choose an excellent venue is to surf through an online entertainment directory. Such a directory will provide you with great places where you can have an entertaining evening with your business colleagues as well as with friends.

You will find many directories that will provide you with a list of bars and places to eat and where you can entertain your business guests with style. If this is what interests you, there are certain directories where you may have places of adult entertainment listed as well. You can take your pick of the choicest night clubs and cabarets, among others.

The places listed in these directories are not limited to entertaining only business associates. You can make your choice selection of bars and restaurants to entertain socially, as well. Many of the places are great for you to host an excellent party to suit your budget. If you wish to spend a social evening of dance and frolic with your friends, you will be able to locate, through an online entertainment directory, great venues where you can hold your dance parties.

The advantage of such a directory is that they not only offer you local places of entertainment and amusement, but the best choices of bars, restaurants, and other places of amusements in the whole country. If, for instance, you are traveling to another city, you can locate places of entertainment before hand, and make your arrangements accordingly. Such directories are not only limited to providing you places to eat and make merry, but also list amusement and theme parks, places of performing arts, as well as sports entertainment.

Children’s Entertainment

The entertainment directory you are surfing through does not only list places for adults to have their business and social entertainment.

You will find places listed where your children can host their own birthday parties and general get-togethers with their friends. You can get details of the venues that provide different types of theme parties for your kids. Through such directories you can also contact people and businesses who can help host various kinds of entertainment for your children and their friends.

You can locate places that can organize animal parties, balloon parties, children’s shows, puppet shows, and other forms of entertainment for your children; not to mention places where your children and their friends can eat to their hearts’ content.

An entertainment directory provides you with better access to places of entertainment than those yellow pages.

Selecting the Right Entertainment For Your Wedding Reception

When planning a Chicago wedding many couples focus on the dress, the food, the flowers, the photos and the endless other details yet they often overlook the importance of the entertainment. While all the elements that go into making a perfect wedding day are important, it is the entertainment at the reception that ultimately has the most impact on your and your guest’s enjoyment of the day. Your guests will barely remember what they had for dinner but will remember if they had a great time dancing or socializing or left early because the entertainment was terrible.

DJ or Band?

Live music and a stage full of musicians adds an element of energy to a wedding that a DJ just can’t match. The right band also adds an air of style and sophistication. There are however several drawbacks to hiring a band for your wedding day. A band is usually more expensive than a DJ due to the number of people involved and the associated costs for parking, meals, etc.

An average wedding band in Chicago starts out at around $1,600. This is a base price and can go up considerably depending on the number of musicians and vocalists desired and if you would like them to learn additional songs.

The major limitation to live music is the bands ability to play a diverse enough range of music to please all of your guests. Bands usually have certain styles of music they excel at and don’t vary much outside of that. Will your band be able to play Big Band for the grandparents, Disco for the parents and then later on 80’s Rock and Top 40 for the younger crowd? Many bands will be able to accommodate a limited number of special requests but they just won’t have the flexibility to handle a wide range of musical styles and requests. If your and your guest’s musical tastes fall into the bands range of available selections this won’t be much of an issue.

A professional disc jockey is often a good choice for wedding reception entertainment due to their ability to accommodate a wide range of musical styles and their relative affordability. A professional wedding DJ in the Chicago area averages around $1,2000. Note that this is an average price and may be higher depending on which company you choose and any additional options that you may add such as extra lighting, larger sound systems, etc.

Some couples choose to solve the dilemma by incorporating both a band and DJ however, this can become quite expensive.

How to choose the right wedding entertainment?

First of all, do your research and seek out professionals. Just because your friend’s cousin has an iPod and has downloaded some music doesn’t make them a DJ or if they really rock at Guitar Hero doesn’t mean their band is ready to perform at weddings and someone you should trust with one of the most important days of your life.

Price should not be the only factor when considering entertainment given how important it is to the success of your reception. As the old adage goes “You get what you pay for”. Cheap DJ’s and bands are cheap for a reason whether it is lack of experience, lack of professional equipment or the fact that they do not run a reputable business. As with anything, expect to pay more for higher quality and better service. The deciding factor should not solely be price but value. Are you getting a quality service at a reasonable and fair price?

Another factor to think about when looking at the price of your wedding entertainment is all of the preparation involved leading up to the big day. In addition to the 8 or more hours the entertainer will be working on the day of your event you must also take into consideration all the time they will spend preparing for your event attending meetings, preparing music, rehearsing introductions, etc. A professional wedding entertainer will spend at least 10 to 20 hours preparing for your event. Amateurs will not.

A true professional wedding entertainer does much more than just show up and play music. They set the tone for the entire event and are your emcee and event host, event coordinator, music programmer, lighting designer, crowd motivator and more. A professional wedding entertainer will coordinate all the activities of your wedding reception to ensure that everything flows smoothly and your guests thoroughly enjoy themselves. When it comes to dancing a good entertainer will play the right songs at the right time to keep your dance floor full.

To seek out potential entertainers ask any newlywed friends for referrals, ask the other wedding professionals you are working with for their recommendations, check with the Better Business Bureau, read local wedding publications and search online.

Once you have found 3-5 companies you are interested in pick up the phone and give them a call or send them an email. First of all how responsive are they? Do they answer the phone right away or promptly return your calls and emails? How professional do they appear?

Ask them about their performance style. Does it match what you are looking for? Some companies are highly interactive which means they will bring props and lead dances with the crowd and maybe even sing. Some companies will act as an emcee but will not be overly interactive. Some companies do neither. Find the company whose style matches yours.

Once you have narrowed down the field to 3 or so perspective companies set up an appointment to meet with a company representative or better yet your potential entertainer. At the meeting do they listen to what you want or do they tell you how they do things? How interested are they in discovering your musical tastes and your vision for your wedding? Will they help you plan the reception and the music? Do you get to choose your entertainer or do they assign them? You should ask a lot of questions to find out as much as you can about the company and the entertainer. Ask for references from past clients. After all is said and done, do you walk out of the meeting with a good feeling about what they can bring to your wedding day?

Weigh your options carefully and choose the entertainment that you think best suits your tastes and budget, will provide an enjoyable atmosphere for your guests and is professional and reliable.

Once you have chosen the entertainment make sure you get a thorough contract that spells out the obligations of both parties so there will not be any misunderstandings further on down the road.

Whether you choose a band or a DJ make sure you do your research and find professional entertainment that matches your style and your wedding day will BE fantastic!

Modern Age & the Need For Entertainment

Why do we need entertainment? There are so many factors, which define the need for entertainment. First and foremost factor is ‘to relax’. You may be feeling distracted, bored, irritated, or simply you need a laugh. For this you need entertainment. Second reason is ‘to feel happy’. In this case, you may go out for movie, celebrate, and eat out. Third reason is ‘loneliness’. In this case, you go out with friends, or dating, or chatting. One more factor is ‘to kill time’.

In this age of hectic schedules, where the work pressure has become almost unbearable, the importance of entertainment has increased manifold. Children after their school and homework need something to refresh their mind. For this they indulge in sports, light reading or many of the recreational activities available to them. Working men after the hectic work in office go for movies, drinks, theatre shows and much more. House wives go for shopping, mall hoping, etc., etc.

So, in brief, everyone needs entertainment in one form or another. In older times entertainment avenues were very few. Theatres, live shows, sports events were some of the few entertainment options available. But now with the coming up of so much technological advancement, the option for entertainment has multiplied many times. Now you can have your choice of entertainment from cinema, theatre, dance, music, sports, amusement venues, television and much-much more.

Entertainment can be passive as well as active. Examples of passive entertainment are watching movies, theatre shows and examples of active entertainment are sports activities. Book reading, playing musical instruments comes under the heading of the hobby.

In our modern age, the free time, the time to enjoy, the time for yourself… is very limited. Everyone wants to enjoy as much as they can in this limited time. This need is also recognized by entertainment industry. The entertainment industry is now producing the kind of entertainment, which is of short duration but very intensive. Movies of short duration, live shows, theatre shows live, dance shows are some instances.

For some people, entertainment is addictive. They cannot live without entertainment. For them, entertainment is not passive. TV, film, radio, theatre, prints or sport exhibits are not simply leisure activities but lifeline for them.

Entertainment plays an important part in children’s life. Without entertainment, children tend to get frustrated and dull. Amusement & Entertainment plays a significant role in the bringing up of a child. It assists a child in developing his motor as well as mental skills and will help him in learning fresh things. Entertainment and leisure also give parents an opportunity to have a rest from their wards when they are occupied with their entertainment actions. Entertainment for children is not specific. Every child is entertained in a different way. The main channels are: Sports Activities, Television, Movies, Wild life.

Massage in Bucharest

Recognize it! You’re busy! And so must be! That’s what life is like! But you want more than that, you want to do more for yourself and massage can help. Because massage makes more than a simple relaxation of the mind and body. It keeps your body in shape and gives you enough energy to make you enjoy a longer life better than you do it today.

Massage releases stress. At the moment, stress is a universal evil. Every time you are late, every time you avoid a car in traffic, every time you have trouble working, stress is doing his job. Each time adrenaline increases heart rate and cortisone levels and organs respond to the measure. You will be in a state of nerves and constant agitation.
When there is no release of stress, serious problems such as an upset stomach, hypertension, sleep disturbances, chest pain, or existing illness may worsen.

Some of the changes that may occur are: Anxiety, lack of concentration, depression, permanent fatigue, muscle or bone pain, sexual dysfunction, excessive sleep or insomnia

All these stress-related problems can be diminished and some can be totally eliminated by massage. The researchers concluded that a massage session can lower heart rate and blood pressure, relax your muscles and increase endorphin production. The massage also releases serotonin and dopamine and the result is a general relaxation, both physical and mental.
Our body care must be at the top of the priorities.
By adding the massage to your routine you will look much better and you will be much healthier and relaxed. Massage can improve your vitality and mood. Massage can prepare for a long and beautiful life.

Our masseuses personalize each massage session according to the needs of the individual.
Our massage parlors offer a variety of relaxation styles and techniques to help you. Apart from relaxing, massage can be a powerful ally in reducing pain, increasing energy levels, improving mental and physical performance

We recommend : HotAngels , VipZone , JadePalace , ThaiPassion

After a massage session, you will see how the mental prospects are enriched, the body allows easier handling, better pressure resistance, relaxation and mental alertness, calm and creative thinking.
When you have the impression or force yourself to stay straight, your body is not actually aligned properly. Not only does the posture look bad, but it forces some of the muscles to go muddy all day, while others become weaker. After a long time, the incorrect position may cause other drops. For example, internal organs press on what affects digestion, breathing ability is also diminished, which means that much less blood and oxygen reaches the brain and hence all sorts of other complications.

Massage allows you to return your body to the track. Allowing the body to make healthy and accurate movements is one of the greatest benefits of massage. Massage can relax and restore muscles injured by bad posture, allowing the body to position itself in a natural, painless position.
Apart from posture, there is also anxiety. One of the signs of anxiety and stress can also be heavy breathing. When the body begins to breathe too little and deeply instead of breathing at a natural rithm, it is impossible for one to relax. One reason may also be that the chest muscles and the abdomen get tightened and the air gets harder.

Massage plays an important role in learning the body how to relax and how to improve breathing. Respiratory problems such as allergies, sinuses, asthma or bronchitis are a group of conditions that can benefit from massage. In fact, massage can have a positive impact on respiratory function.

Many of the muscles in the front and back of the upper part of the body are breathing accessory. When these muscles are tight and shorten they can block normal breathing and interrupt effective breathing natural rithm. Massage techniques for stretching and relaxing these muscles improves breathing function and breathability. Massage leads to an opening of the chest as well as structural alignment and nerve dilatation that are required for optimal pulmonary function. A good way to treat respiratory problems with massage is the taping made in Swedish massage. When done on the back, along with vibrations, it can detach the mucus from the lungs and can clean the airways for better later function.

Massage not only relaxes muscles, but helps people become aware of daily stress levels. Once the body recognizes what really means relaxation, the mind can rest easily relax before the stress becomes cornice and harmful. This will help you enjoy a balanced life. Massage controls breathing, allows the mind to re-create relaxation before the occurrence of chronic and harmful stress and increases the level of energy.
