Convention Mania

“Men with secrets tend to be drawn to each other, not because they want to share what they know, but because they need the company of the like-minded, the fellow afflicted.”
~~Don Delillo

Greetings Magical Friends!

It’s magic convention time in Las Vegas! Here’s the news: Hundreds of wand-waving rabbit pullers, clad in top hats and turbans will descend upon the mecca of magic, our Las Vegas, for a week-long magical Mardi-Gras.

Class with Lance BurtonIt all begins at the Orleans Hotel for the World Magic Seminar, and it wraps up at the McBride House
of Mystery… This is the best time of year to visit Las Vegas; flights and hotels are inexpensive and the weather is gorgeous! If you have ever thought about visiting our school, the time is now! Just call Abbi at 702-450-0021 and we’ll be happy to help you plan your Master Class, or private session.

You are invited to our Master Class event February 23rd, 24th, and 25th. This is the last three day Master Class for this semester, and we placed it at this time because many magicians are coming into town for the World Magic Seminar. We’re very excited to be working with Lance Burton on his Teen Seminar at the WMS. Eugene and I have worked the past number of years with Bill and Becki Wells in crafting a unique program each year that stimulates creativity and nurtures a growing interest in their art.

We will also be helping the competitors prepare for the big competition. If you are planning to attend the WMS, please swing by our MCBRIDE MAGIC SCHOOL room and say hello! I’ll be demonstrating some of the new techniques from my new DVD ZOOM BOUNCE AND FLY, so if you have any questions, or if you want to witness it live and in person, close-up, stop in!

I had a passing thought the other day… I’m so happy to be a magician. I’m glad I chose this profession over ALL others. One definition of magic is that it’s the art of transformation. I asked my friend Bobby, a juggler, what the definition of juggling is. He said, “juggling is the art of throwing up and catching it.” … I’m so happy to be a magician.

We’ve had wonderful response to the television show ENIGMA. MAGIC MAGAZINE ran a piece in their recent issue and Tobias says we will have DVD copies available for you on our website soon.

We look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas soon. Special thanks to all of our mysterious friends who attended our three day MYSTERIUM event. It was, by far, the best one yet. Registration will open for MAYFIRE in the next few weeks. If you’d like to attend, please send us an email or call Abbi.

Yours in the magical arts,

Jeff & Abbi McBride
