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 For advanced card magicians he will show you a new unpublished sleight and its 40-year evolution.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.

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.

Dana Daniels Lecture in April

posted Apr 3, 2016, 7:10 AM by Brian Hoffman   [ updated Apr 3, 2016, 7:12 AM ]

            Award-winning magician and comedian Dana Daniels will share his insights, stories, and tips with Ring 280 members and guests at this month’s regularly scheduled meeting on April 14th.  Best known for performing with his feathered partner, Luigi the Psychic Parrot, Dana has also received raves for his hilarious “The No Show,” where he portrays a slightly clueless janitor who ends up playing multiple roles as he attempts to cover for missing variety show performers.

            Dana Daniels was born and raised in Long Beach, California, and was a member of the illustrious “Long Beach Mystics” club, which also produced such magic luminaries as Kevin James, Stan Allen, Mike Caveney, Mark Kalin, and Michael Weber.  Daniels was the very first magician to receive the Comedy Magician of the year award from the Magic Castle, where he often appears when he is not performing for the management and top sales people for major corporations such as McDonald’s and Lincoln Financial.  He has made many television appearances, including Evening at the Improv, CBS Morning Show, Masters of Illusion, and America’s Got Talent, and has opened for such stars as Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Jan & Dean, and Charo.

            Ring 280 is excited to host what should be a very enjoyable and humorous evening with Dana … with ample opportunities to ask questions and learn from a true master of comedy magic.  Ring 280 members who have already renewed their 2016-2017 memberships (or who pay their renewal dues prior to the start of the lecture) will be able to attend for free!  Admission will be $5 for current non-renewed Ring 280 members, and $10 for non-Ring 280 member attendees.
