Meir Yedid’s Bag Of Trix Lecture

Meir will show you the props and tricks I carry with me and what I do with them in seemingly impromptu situations. In addition to those Meir will show you a card routine that he likse to do and customize for any occasion. For advanced card magicians he will show you a new unpublished sleight and its 40-year evolution.

This online lecture will last around an hour. The premise and theme revolves around the wallet/purse that he always carry with he when he goes out. It is basically “My Bag Of Trix,” just like Felix The Cat.

Keith Fielding Lecture June 11

posted May 28, 2020, 4:28 PM by IBMRing280

Joining us on June 11, Keith Fields!

 

Keith Fields will be joining us at our June 11, 2020 meeting where he will share a few things with us:

 

A live performance featuring Keith and, of course, the fabulous Lady Sarah.

Magic online (Top tips for performing in this new environment).

And Keith will teach a couple of tricks from his lecture.

 

A virtual visit usually lasts about 30 to 40 minutes. After the lecture, Keith will stick around and answer questions for a total of one hour.

 

But there is more…

 

Everyone who attends will get the following FREE GIFTS…

A copy of my new EBook ’50 ways to Improve your act’ ($10 value).

A copy of the lecture notes for the talk.

Access to my online lecture ‘Magic Matters’ ($14.95 Value)

 

Keith would like to stress that this is NOT a dealer demonstration and the tricks taught will not need special apparatus or one of his products.  The idea is purely to have fun and encourage us all to be better performers. And to share a little magic and fun in this difficult time.

An Evening with Kainoa Harbottle 

Coin magic has a reputation of being extremely difficult to learn and even more challenging to perform. Kainoa Harbottle  is on a mission to change all that. Author, performer, lecturer, and all around nice guy.

You’ll learn magic designed to look IMPOSSIBLE with squeaky clean methods, multiple climaxes and brand new techniques that you can start using almost right away. There’s something here for everyone; fun and easy coin magic for those just starting all the way to the knucklbusting stuff that’ll make even the most hardcore sweat.

On top of the tricks, Kainoa will teach you how to transform close-up magic into powerful stand-up miracles. Whether you’re a close-up worker, a stage guy, a coin gal, or just someone who loves INCREDIBLE magic, this is event for you.

 

Kainoa’s magic breathes new life into the tired phrase “right before your very eyes.” His performances represent his wish to share with others uncanny experiences—events that bring to life our desires. By making money appear from nowhere and proving that everyone can perform the impossible, Kainoa endeavors to make magical experiences meaningful to all.
