At the Ice Bar

It sure is a pleasure to work at some venues and the ice bar in London has to be one of the best without a shadow of a doubt!!

Ice Bar London

By 4 o’clock I was dressed and ready to leave, with my bag packed full of magical goodies to dazzle and amaze the guests with, I gave myself plenty of time to get there as I was going by train, no problems on the way and I arrived at 6pm, an hour early which was good so I stood at the bar and sipped a nice cole glass of ice water.

I met with the event organiser had a very delightful chat, all the employees at the IceBar are very polite and VERY accommodating which isn’t always what us performers get when working at a venue.
The corporate party was held downstairs - 200 guests booked plus 5-6 waiting staff, 2 security staff, a DJ, an events organiser a magician (ME) and a partridge in a pear tree in one room with a max capacity of 200, it was not only noisy but hot too.

The guests started to arrive thick and fast so I set about my doing my thing…..

Well all I can say is WOW, what a bloomin’ marvellous crowd it was, happy polite and very eager to see the magic I was performing.

I was pulled from one group to another by one person because he wanted to show me off to his colleagues after seeing one of my favourite card tricks, I even had people coming up to me asking me to do magic for them while I was mid performance of a routine with another group.

One guy couldn’t get enough and kept watching me and saw some of the same tricks more than once, he came up and said
“I cant believe you, I’ve just watch you do that 3 times and I still don’t know how you do it”
Its moments like that, that make me happy to do what I love doing, and in fact the whole night made me very happy I was buzzing after the 3 hour booking.

I did a trick to one group and the showed the same effect to the small congregation just next to them, so the first group had the advantage of seeing everything a second time, well they had told me how crazy it was that they saw from different angles and commented on my sleeves being rolled up,
How can I top that?!

The night ended with me demonstrating my talents with the same trick to 3 different groups of people (it was one of my favourite coin tricks).
Someone in the last group said
“Fu** off I was watching your hands all the time how the hell did you do it?”

With that he gave me a beer shook my hand and I left.
I had performed a few new tricks and even some old ones that I have not done in a long time, the new and old tricks are all going back in the bag, they all received top reactions.

I look forward to the next IceBar gig!

Magic in Farnborough

Well last night was a wonderful private gig of all things magic in Farnborough, a family party.
It is really good when people gasp in amazement and applaud you for something you have made vanish or appear, it's those moments that i love and cherish.

I ended up doing 20 minuets longer because I forgot myself as I was simply having too much fun - probably more than the guests were?!

I think the coming season will be a busy one!
See you round Hampshire.
