Smoke & Mirrors
A notice from Simon.
Myself (Simon), Leon and Dan are doing a few shows in Brighton, Worthing and Eastbourne. Its basically a continuation from the Smoke and Mirrors events that Leon, Dan and Marcus did last year.
It's actually turning out to be rather popular. We've got 450 odd people on the Facebook group, with more joining every day.
We've also got some professional magicians (ie. have done their own TV shows / DVDs etc) wanting to come along and perform. So far we've got Richard Bellars http://www.penguinmagic.com/specialorderproduct.php?ID=8254, and Paul Zenon says he'll be at the Brighton gig if he's not in Edinburgh. Got some others in the pipeline as well.
We've got 3 gigs, one in Eastbourne on the 12th of August at The Crown and Anchor on Marine Parade, one in Brighton at the Hope on Queens Road on the 19th, and the last one is in Worthing at Occasions Nightclub on the 26th.
Tickets are £5 or £4 for concessions
Web-site address is www.smokemirrors.co.uk all the details are on there.
We need some help. We're obviously wanting to make it as impressive as possible. Unfortunately none of us are really stage magicians, and don't have much in the way of stage stuff. Most of the stage stuff we have is mentalism, so we're trying to come up with other tricks that will work for a 50+ person audience that aren't mentalism.
So can we ask that if any of the members think that they've got props, or routines that they'll be happy to loan us for the gigs (and some practice time beforehand) then we'll love them forever and maybe buy them a drink or something.
