Can you find the key to this TOP SECRET MYSTERY?
Here are some hints.

  • When was the last time you had a REAL magical experience?

Student of The Month: Elliott Hunter –

See Elliot Hunter live at WONDERGROUND this month only!

Elliott was twelve years old when he first learned of Jeff McBride and the Magic and Mystery School through his viewing of L&L’s The Art of Card Manipulation series. He attended his first Master Class as soon as he was old enough. Once he got to college, Elliott became one of Jeff’s privately mentored students. From that time on, Elliott has become a regular performer at the Magic Castle, and he recently won the International Magic Master Summit Stage Competition.

Parents and students take note:

Elliott has built his business to the point that it helps cover the cost of his college expenses. He is currently an engineering student at Cal Poly (one of the nation’s top engineering schools), a competitive swimmer, competing on the national level, a triathlete, a volunteer swim coach, and a professional magician!

Giving back to the World:

For the last twelve years, Elliott has been refining his art to develop versatile, full evening productions to build his magic into a career. Elliott uses his talent to help numerous non-profit organizations raise tens of thousands of dollars! To find out more about Elliott, go to

Late Breaking News

Magicians to Attempt Five Guinness World Records

On July 12, 2019 over 450 magicians will attempt five Guinness World Records while attending the International Brotherhood of Magician’s (I.B.M.) Magic Convention at the Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Jeff McBride is a master at the ancient magic effect named The Linking Rings. This year Jeff will join forces with magicians from around the world to attempt to break the current record for “Most Chinese Liking Rings Linked Together,” which is 534 rings. This record was set by 130 magicians at the Cleveland, Ohio I.B.M. convention in 2004. This and four other new records will be attempted at 3:00 pm on Friday, July 12, 2019.

The International Brotherhood of Magicians is the world’s largest organization dedicated to the art of magic with members in 88 countries. 450 magicians at the magic convention will attempt to set two records with the Chinese Linking Rings, two records with coins, and one record with playing cards.

Should the group succeed with the new record for Linking Rings, it will be McBride’s fourth successful attempt at setting a Guinness World Record.

“The Enchantments of magic point beyond mere illusions to the great mystery of life… the eternal transformations of life, death and rebirth.”- Eugene Burger

This month, Eugene Burger would have been 80 years old. We celebrated his birthday and in doing so it reminded me of how short and sweet our lives can be. Every day is an opportunity to share your love for magic with others…. go forth and be awesome!

Blessings to all

Jeff and Abigail
