April 14, 2016: Dana Daniels Lecture

Post date: Apr 03, 2016 2:12:32 PM

The highlight of our April meeting will of course be a lecture by the great Dana Daniels, but the first order of business will be the annual elections for the Board of Directors. Be aware that the meeting will start PROMPTLY at 7:30pm so we have time to pass out ballots, vote, and collect them as quickly as possible before the lecture starts. If you want to have a say in your Ring, PLEASE try to be on time.

Dues have been "integrated" into the lecture: as announced previously, anyone who pays their dues BEFORE the April meeting starts will attend the lecture for FREE! Otherwise, members can attend for $5 and non-members are $10. So as you can see, our April meeting is the place to be!

About the Dana Daniels Lecture:

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.
