Michele and I wish our readers a very happy holiday season, good health and a prosperous 2013.

Jim Zachary, Past National President of S.A.M. has suffered for several years with blockages in his leg. He has undergone several procedures and is now scheduled for a total bypass of the right leg on 19th December. Hopefully that will allow him to keep the leg. As many know, Jim is known for his dice stacking and the magnificent tables he used to make.

Jim has many friends all over the world and I know he would like to receive messages of encouragement - jezacharys@msn.com

Message by George Schindler (US)

The Society of American Magicians Magic Endowment fund wishes to thank the many magicians who have donated funds for the Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief project. We have been able to assist some victims who needed extra funding for temporary housing, rebuilding damaged homes and in one case we supplied a generator to keep medicines refrigerated during a power outage.

While out of daily news cycles, many victims of Sandy are still in need of help. Our resources are limited and your generosity is appreciated. Assistance is available to any magician or allied artist in need.

If you wish to donate contact relief@magicsam.co m or mail checks to S.A.M. at t234 Towyn Court, Ambler PA 19002.

Magicians in need can apply at the same address or email relief@magicsam.com

4. News From Chicago
Message by Danny Orleans

The exhibition 'MAGIC' which has been open to the public at the Chicago History Museum on the north side of Chicago since June, will be coming to a close on January 6.

It details the history of magicians who got their start, or spent time performing in Chicago during the last century. Three rooms of the museum are filled with magic antiques from yesteryear, including a milk can used by Houdini, Jack Gwynne's Temple of Benarres, Dorny's prop case, costumes from Blackstone, Celeste Evans and Marshall Brodein.

There is also a cool 12-minute experience in an intimate multimedia object theatre which contains a blue room effect. Danny Orleans will be performing close-up magic for guests on weekends and every day between Christmas and New Years. If you live in the Chicago area, or are passing through during the holidays, don't miss this unique opportunity to enjoy an exhibition that will never be repeated again.

5. The Best $1 You Will Ever Spend!
Message by Paul Stone (US)

I have come across what I believe to be one of the most valuable promotional and publicity ideas for any performer or entertainer that I have seen for many years! Its impact is long lasting and the results that it can achieve for you are simply amazing! Best of all, it is incredibly cost effective.

I would be happy to share the details with any Magic NZ subscriber. Just send an email to me at qualityevents@aol.com and attach a couple of your promo photos, as high resolution as possible, and a brief description of your show - no more than 50 words - and include your mailing address. I'll send you in the mail everything you need to give it a try. The reaction you will get will blow you away!

But DON'T send me the $1. Instead, please donate it to a local Children's Charity in memory of the victims of the Newtown tragedy. Thank you.

6. Remarkable Magic #60 - Nick Lewin
Message by Nick Lewin (US)

Concerning the Contract.

I gave a few personal ideas about handling phone calls and enquiries last week and want to finish up with a few related thoughts in this week's column. I want to also take this opportunity to wish all our readers a very happy holiday season and a great 2013.

The contract is a very important item to any performer. Because it ensures that the gig will happen and you will get your check? No. However, it should make sure that you have all your booking details correct and that the business side is taken correctly taken care of. The contract is seldom going to ensure that the client lives up to his word and it is almost never going to be worth your while pursuing legal action if they don't. You still need to handle it shrewdly.

The most important details to cover on your contract are:

1. The date and approximate timing of the gig.

2. The exact contact details of your client.

3. The exact location and address of your gig.

4. Relevant details about expenses i.e. travel and hotel.

5. The duration of your performance.

6. Details of whom to contact when you arrive on site.

7. Any special requests or requirements i.e. what is suitable wardrobe.

8. Details about your technical requirements. This will often include the email and phone contact for the AV team who will be in charge of the event.

9. Your technical requirements.

10. Exact details about your fee, including how, when and by whom it will be paid.

Most of the above is really self-explanatory, but let's cover the all-important tenth detail - your fee and how it is paid.

My personal rule of thumb is to ALWAYS require a 50% deposit to be returned with the contract to hold the date, and the remaining 50% to be paid prior to show time on the date of the booking. This is the way to cover your time and energy and insure that there are no last minute cancellations that leave you with no salary and a hole in your schedule.

The key phrasing is '50% to hold the date', that way if the date is cancelled or changed then you have half your fee to cover your efforts. I have only had a tiny percentage of clients express a problem with this, and if they have a problem then it tells me that I may have a problem down the line. If the date is changed then you can offer to apply the deposit to another booking if you are able to adjust your schedule.

The reason for the full payment prior to show time is so that you get your payment while you still have some leverage. Once you have performed the show then it is all too easy to find that you are placed on a 'billing cycle' and are waiting 30 or 60 days for a check. Entertainment is cash upon delivery service - end of story.

You shouldn't think of this kind of payment plan as being fussy, demanding or 'out of line' but simply correct business etiquette. Just state, in a friendly and matter of fact manner that this is the way you handle your bookings. The way you structure your payments is a much greater protection than anything else on your contract. If you are a professional then expect to be treated like one.

Accompanying your contract should be a technical rider that states exactly what you need supplied to fulfill your side of the contract. If you need a microphone, lighting or a place to set your props - then let the booker know about it in advance. Don't arrive on site expecting to get anything you haven't specified in advance, you might or then again you might not, why take a chance.

One contractual clause that has paid great benefits to me relates to video assist during your show. A corporate client sometimes asks if they can use 'I-mag' to enhance your show or film the show for their corporate records. I never have a problem with this but always insist that I am supplied with a copy of the tape. Here is your next potential promo tape, and if you don't ask for it you won't get it!

You can check out my product line, order items and check out cool videos on my website. I have been receiving rave reviews for my 'Ultimate Linking Finger Ring Routine' and 'Cruise Magic 101'. You can find my website at

7. Simple But Fun Idea - #284 - Kyle Peron
Message by Kyle Peron

I always like to remind myself that my show and routines are about entertainment value. It is about smiles and laughter. Not everything I do has to warrant a WOW response or reaction. As many of us know, you need to make the journey as much fun as the destination.

Whenever I am doing shows, I love creating interactive fun between helper/s on stage. I want the interaction and the laughter and the ability to improvise off situations that come up. To me this allows the show to feel a bit more spontaneous.

One thing I do I wanted to share with you. It is the usage of a clear change bag. You can get them most anywhere and they come in a variety of styles. I have several and use different ones for different purposes.

One thing I love to do is to have an adult and a child on stage at the same time. I empower the child and have fun with the adult. The adult can handle it and knows what is going on and the child ends up feeling and looking like a million bucks.

What I do is to bring them both up on stage and state we are going to have a contest. The contest is to test who is smarter. First we need to see what the audience thinks. When I place my hand above the helpers head the audience will gauge by their round of applause. When I go over to the child helper, I prime the audience to shout and clap a ton. Very easy to do as I walk over and stand to the side and back of the child.

When I go over to the adult, I prime the audience to stay quiet. Also very easy to do. Already it gets a lot of laughs and gives me a chance to improvise based off what the helpers may say.

For the change bag, what I do is make up what looks like Trivia Cards. Very easy to design them and print them out on card stock. Each one has a question printed on it as well as the answer on the back. I also make sure they are branded with my colors and branding. This helps extend my marketing.

The idea here is that half of the trivia cards have super easy questions on them and the other half have questions that are absolutely impossible to answer.

For example, the easy card might say:
"State your first name.you have 10 seconds"

The harder question might be:
What is the square root of 1,564,322..you have 2 seconds to answer"

So you may see where this is going. All the easy questions go on one side of the clear change bag and the had questions go on the other side. When handled and show to audience, it just looks like a plain bag of trivia cards. You can have both helpers pull out a card or so to show some are hard and some easy.

When it comes to the actual game, the child ALWAYS gets an easy question and the adult ALWAYS gets a super hard one. It looks totally fair and innocent in every way. The child looks awesome and the adult helps you out by taking some of the laughter in good spirit.

The questions can be very hilarious just as the situation is as they see the kid getting easier and easier questions to answer. The possibilities of Improvisation are huge.

I use this at scout banquets with the scout master and a Webelo scout. I do this contest to see who get selected to place their finger in the Finger Chopper to test bravery and strength in scouting.

There are many possibilities for using this as a standalone or as a segue into a trick or effect.

Have fun with it and give it a try. Loads of laughs and interaction.

As always, I encourage you the readers to let me know your thoughts. So if you have any thoughts on my articles or suggestions or comments, please feel free to e-mail me directly at magic4u02@aol.com. I would love to hear from you.

8. In Conversation with Pat Fallon - #14
Message by Anthony Darkstone Brook - Europe/USA


AD: Winning gave you an International boost and did you a lot of good in
Ireland too.

PF: I'll say it did, yes . Back home it generated lots of interest in the Press and on Radio and Television which all helped to improve my profile as an International performer. We began touring our own show performing in schools, theatres and at the numerous festivals held around the country. We kept it tight by doing everything ourselves, from the marketing, to working the sound and lighting and selling the merchandise after each event. Unlike others who had tried similar things we actually made money because we kept the overheads down.

A Dublin Solicitor, John Schutte who put himself through college performing magic built up a very successful business because of his marketing. He specialized in the field of personal injury law and his marketing was so good and innovative no one else could keep pace with him. I met John through the magic society and it was he who thought me the importance of good honest marketing. I realized very early on in my life that good information can come from the most unusual places.

AD: Don't know him but I totally support that view .

PF: As do I Tony. Yes it was great when we worked on bigger shows and had a Tour Manager, road crew and sound and lighting technicians, but when the budget did not allow for such luxuries we were never too proud to get our hands dirty if it meant staying in profit.

ABC Magic at that time also branched out into the dealing business, marketing original effects and buying and selling second hand props and illusions. It was another stream of income and something we could work at in our down time when not on the road. Life was good and getting better all the time. Work was plentiful so we were able to move to a bigger house in the country and set our sights on purchasing a property abroad with an eye to the future.

After living together for ten years Tanya and I decided to get married much to the delight of our family and friends who shared in the two day celebration party. When it appeared that life could just not get any better, it suddenly jumped up and bit me in the rear .

AD: Wonderful at first and. I can empathize. there's always that sting in the tail ..please continue

PF: Yes. It has been said there is nothing like marriage to ruin a good relationship and for some unknown reason that turned out to be the case. After five very good happy years of marriage it disintegrated over a period of a couple of months and our sixteen year relationship eventually ended badly. It could not have come at a worse time as the Irish economy imploded, the property market collapsed and the corporate entertainment business disappeared overnight in the worst recession this country has ever known.It had all been far too easy for so long that it was difficult going back to knocking on doors chasing work. It was reminiscent of the late eighties only a lot worse, so I had no choice but to introduce another five year plan. Being a lot older now does not make it any easier, but at least this time I had the knowledge that the five year plan will take five years and to date progress is good.

End of Part 14
Part 15
AD: So what does the future hold for Pat Fallon?

PF: Well, I have always looked upon myself as a work in progress and hopefully will remain so as long as I have life in my body. I am working on a new dove act, rehearsing some new cabaret material and writing up many of the routines that have put bread on my table for my new lecture.

I am also working on a different type of stage show with a former TV producer/director, and past president of the Society of Irish Magicians Joe O'Donnell, who is a multi award winning writer of plays and short stories. I am really excited about this project as it will be something completely different from anything I have ever done before, but further than that I cannot say anything else for the moment.

I have so much to be grateful for doing a job that I have never looked upon as a job. I have so many wonderful friends in the business all over the globe and thankfully I still love performing as much as ever.

I have already mentioned on several occasions during this conversation Neville Wiltshire and Quentin Reynolds as inspirational in my life, but if I was to start listing the number of other prominent magicians who helped me with my career in magic it would end up like a who's who of magic. Those who always went way beyond the call of duty as far as I am concerned were Roy Johnson, Geoff Durham, Ali Bongo, Pat Page, Billy McComb, Paul Daniels and Debbie Magee. These people always had time to discuss every aspect of the business and were never too busy to hand out helpful tips and advice whenever I needed it. I miss Ali, Billy and Pat very much as any time spent in their company, even socially was never wasted. I noticed with them even if I was only on the fringe of someone else's problem I usually found there was something to be learned from the experience.

AD: You got my vote. Didn't know Dr.Billy that well but I spent a great deal of quality time with Pat and Ali and I shall always cherish with great gratitude those times.

PF: Yes Tony I agree. We were indeed fortunate. There were lots of other people who may, or may not, be so well known worldwide in the business who contributed in no small way to the advancement of my career. Mike Sheppard of York was brave enough to book me for my first lecture outside of Ireland in Barnsley of all places and Tony Griffith who booked my first two lecture tours in the UK and then countries further afield. Clive Leewarden from the Card Collection who helped me to market my first effect, The Ultimate Irish Three Card Trick and Morley Budden from Kaymar Magic who sold so many of the trick that he maintains it was his biggest selling close-up trick ever.

It would be very remiss of me at this time not to mention the two guys who for many years ran great conventions in Limerick. Paddy Ward and Vincent Finnucaine gave me the opportunity to appear on shows and hang out with some fantastic people including the great Harry Blackstone Junior, on what was his only appearance ever in Ireland. My friend of the last thirty years Joe Hoey also deserves a special mention as his wisdom is always invaluable. When life was not so good and I was too focused on the problems that were surrounding me he was the one who gave me some very sound advice "Forget about the problems in your life, just concentrate on getting your act and your business sorted out and everything else will fall into place".
End of Part 15

Part 16
AD: What a great piece of advice ..I'm "stealing" that line.

PF: Yes .. I know what you mean. I think all too often we focus on the problem and not on the solution, or we set unobtainable goals without concentrating on the things we need to get us there. Joe reminded me that the definition of luck was preparation meeting opportunity, so it is important to prepare well for every opportunity.

This is something I fear that many younger magicians need to correct as they focus too much on becoming famous and neglect the fact that they need something to catapult into that orbit. If they spent as much time on developing their magical abilities as they do on their social media profile they would do more to raise the awareness of magic in the public domain. The problem is that their publicity promises so much, but they deliver so little that it is of no benefit to anyone, especially themselves.

In the long term this has a detrimental effect on the magic business on the whole. Bad magic has and always will keep magical entertainment on the fringe of show business. It's all about percentages, the number of good magicians and amazing magic that the public get to see compared to the amount of bad stuff they are subjected to will keep it that way for the foreseeable future.

I don't think it has to be like that if only magicians would put in the time and effort to improve their performance and clean up themselves and their acts it could go a long way to improving the public perception of magic overall.

I am really grateful to you Tony for giving me this opportunity in a down-time period to chat to you about some of my favourite people and things so I would love to share with you a quote that hangs above my desk. It is something we should all remember when we are trying to sell ourselves;

"When your work speaks for itself don't interrupt."

AD: Great quote! I'm "stealing" that too! I like down-time and it seems we have now got to the point of totally chillaxing . it has been a blast Pat and a great joy to spend time in your company. Thank you kindly.

PF: My pleasure entirely Tony and before you call it a wrap can I ask a question?

AD: Sure. Go for it.

PF: Next time you and I are in England in a bar, can you bring a handful of some bloody Ten Pound notes??????!!!

AD: He! He! Done!!! You got it and a matching set of Vegas showgirls!!! As always Pat, many thanks and break a leg.

PF: Most welcome Tony and I look forward to hanging with you again real soon.

11. Jeff Mcbride's Magic Wonderground Celebrates Its Third Year
Message by Tobias Beckwith

Jeff McBride's Magic Wonderground celebrates its third smash year at The Olive!
Las Vegas, Dec. 15, 2012 - Jeff McBride's Wonderground at The Olive on Sunset celebrates its third anniversary on December 20th. Each third Thursday for the past three years, a diverse group of magicians, variety artists, body painters, musicians, burlesque stars, slam poets, belly dancers and others have come together to entertain an ever-growing audience of in-the-know Las Vegans and out-of-towners at the Olive Grill on Sunset as part of Jeff McBride's Wonderground. And now The Wonderground is set to launch into its 4th smash year!

During the past year, Jeff McBride and his Wonderground phenomenon has inspired similar events, including ones in Milwaukee, WI (hosted by magician Dan Pollack), Rumford, ME (hosted by Scott Grassette), and now, "The Wonderland" in Louisville, KY, hosted by Ray Smerlin. Each of the spin-offs was inspired by a visit from McBride to that city while on tour, and subsequent visits by the sponsors to the once-monthly event in Las Vegas. Each has its own distinct flavor, but maintains the basic format created by McBride for the continuing Las Vegas event.

Jeff McBride Wonderground is an experience that has evolved over time. McBride started experimenting with the concept almost 8 years ago. It all began in McBride's "Wonderdome," an experimental inflated dome set up in a secret warehouse location, (then by invitation only), then moved to Palace Station in the fall of 2008, where it materialized once each week, following the Friday night performances of McBride's stage show, Magic at the Edge.

After a year off, The Wonderground re-opened at the newly created nightclub at the Olive Grill, on East Sunset, where it has lived ever since. The event continues to grow and evolve each month - on a recent third Thursday, there were long lines waiting to get in from about 8pm on.

The Las Vegas magic and variety arts community has made The Wonderground it's special home away from home over the past couple of years. On a given night, one might spot Mac King, Lance Burton or Criss Angel at one of the tables. Jan Reuven often drops by, as well as Kevin James and Kevin Burke. Even Seigfried has been spotted on more than one occasion. McBride states, "I love creating a space where all my friends in magic can come and feel comfortable which visiting with one another. And of course, the star power in the room adds another level to the experience for the general public who comes to experience this always changing, one of a kind event each month!"

Jeff McBride, creator of The Wonderground is a long-time Las Vegas favorite. He started coming here when he was still in his 20's, as an opening act for Diana Ross. First tapped as a headliner for the 1980's revue "Bal de Moulin Rouge," at the Hilton, he was later one of the headlining shows in Caesars Magical Empire's Sultan's Palace.

He has toured the world with his shows, but "Magic at the Edge" several years ago at Palace Station was his first time bringing the full evening to Las Vegas. Living here for the past 14 years, McBride still performs around the world in between Vegas engagements. He is the founder of the McBride Magic & Mystery School, named by the BBC as the "world's most prestigious school of magic," which makes Las Vegas it's home, as well.

Recently, several of the Wonderground evenings have been hosted by McBride's wife, Abigail. The reason? He has been touring in South America along with 7 of the world's other top magicians in "The Illusionists," perhaps the world's largest touring magic extravaganza. While Jeff has thus far managed to make it home to Vegas at least every other month, Abbi has proven to be an able Mistress of Ceremonies for the every growing, every changing celebration that is The Wonderground.
