Thank you Darren for the awesome picture! We were both working at the CIBC Grand Opening last weekend where he took a few pictures of me. He sent me this great picture over Facebook. See more of his work at www.HullPhotographic.com
On Sunday I performed at the RDCO Kokanee Salmon Festival. They really nailed the “Festival Atmosphere” with tons of stations and entertainment for everyone. Here are a few photo’s from my performance.
I originally posted this years Westside Daze Photo’s on my Facebook account, but from my stats it looks like lots of you want more Westside Daze stuff! Here’s some photo’s taken at my performance at the Okanagan Business Excellence booth and my stage show sponsored by TD Canada Trust.
I had a great time performing at Westside Daze 2009. The weather was perfect for all the guests, but honestly it was too hot for my stage show! It was quite uncomfortable, but I made it through the show just fine. Those 30 minutes on stage usually go by so fast, but in really hot heat it felt like an hour! Its shows like that where I’m glad I have solid material that I know inside out. The audience was great with a nice mixture of adults and kids.
Here’s a few photo’s taken from my performance yesterday at Peachland’s Canada Day Celebration down at Heritage Park on the beach. The weather was fantastic and the audience was even fantastic-er!! (I know that isn’t a word, but they were awesome).
Next year I’m going to set myself up so that behind me is the lake instead of the gazebo. Those photo’s will be killer. Plus it will give the audience a nice view too
On Sunday I was invited to perform at the Parkinson Rec Centre Family Fun Day 2009. There were a ton of activities at the event… they really went all out! For any family its one of the must-attend activities of the year. They had stations all around the entire building, a stage with entertainment, and they even kept the parking under control with officers at intersections around the building.
Before the show I was concerned that it was going to be way too hot. I ended up bringing a big fan that I setup on the stage behind me, but the weather actually turned out to be perfect! I didn’t even need the fan. The stage/tent was pretty far away from the audience, so I left the “stage” and got right up close with the audience. It was a little hotter right out in the sunlight, but as you can tell by the pictures below, the audience had a blast and so did I.
This past weekend I performed at the Love of Wildlife Children’s Annual Art Show. This show was so much fun! It was a great mix of kids and adults, and everybody there was ready to have a great time.
This past weekend I performed at the Hebig / Rintoul wedding at Club Shuswap in Salarm Arm, B.C. Below is a gallery of some of the photo’s taken by M.A.D. Photography – Melissa Ann Davies.
“Thank you again for the great performance. You truly amazed all the guests at our daughter’s wedding. Everyone was talking about the magic show all evening and into the next day. The guests particularly liked the mingling and one on one magic.””
Couple pictures from today’s performance at the Rutland May Days Festival. The weather was perfect for outdoors entertainment today, and the show was a blast.
This kid was sooo adorable! What a great moment on stage.
Performing outside is fun because I don’t have to worry about spilling!
I read an interesting quote the other day; I think @tferris posted it on Twitter. It was something like “If you feel like you’ve got everything under control… you aren’t moving fast enough”. An interesting idea.. and sometimes it sure does feel that way!
I’m kind of a control freak, which is probably my best quality but not all of the time! This month I have a huge list of goals that I want to complete, but it sure can be challenging when you’ve got so many shows to do.
I love it though. I love performing. Over the past couple weeks I’ve been invited to perform for a fundraiser gala evening, a grand opening, a school fun fair, a BBQ event, an afterschool care center, and a birthday party. I love being able to perform in different venues for different types of people, it keeps things interesting. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the shows I have booked this month as well. More birthday’s, more school events, a large children’s show, and a huge family event and a few others—Woohoo!
Between all those shows I’m excited about all the projects I’m working on too. For those of you who receive my Magical Moments eNewsletter you’ll know that I just launched a brand new website for brides who are looking for Kelowna Wedding entertainment. I love the tagline of “Write the story of your wedding with magic.” While building the site I had my older sister and her friends critique my site and all the girls were disappointed that they already had their weddings because they thought that having a magician was such a great idea! Many people immediately just think of only a DJ for their wedding, but there are so many benefits of adding a magician to your wedding to entertain your guests. By far my favourite show option, and my most popular option, is Mingling Magic. I have a few wedding shows coming up this summer and I know I’ll have a blast. Everybody at weddings is always in such a great mood.
Also I’ve just ordered some new banner stands for my show. I got some printed up last year, but they need to be updated. I’ll post some pictures of them once I receive them.
I hope you’re all enjoying the nice weather we’re FINALLY getting here in the Okanagan. Until next time, take care.
This year I was invited to perform at the 2009 Urban Adventure Challenge After Party. I had a blast performing for all the teams and volunteers who took part in the event. Everyone was really excited at the event, and people were ready to just sit back, relax, and take in some magic.
For those who are on facebook- you can find these same pictures on my photoalbum.
Today I had two really awesome shows. The first one was some mingling magic at the Lil’ Sproutz Children’s Market. There were a bunch of young families there with their young children making for a really great atmosphere. One of the little girls had seen me before and was really excited to see me perform again- she was telling me about all the tricks she saw me perform and how much she loved them. I love having fans.
There was also another family who had seen me perform last year at Westside Daze and were wondering if I would be there again this year. Yes, I’ll be performing at Westside Daze again this year. The date hasn’t been finalized yet, but it will probably be on Saturday July 4th during the Children’s day. For the first time, this year the Saturday is going to feature a FULL DAY designed especially for kids including children’s entertainment all day long. I’m really excited about this because it means that there’s going to be a huge audience for my Children’s Stage Show.
Also Westside Daze 2009 is also going to have West Coast Amusement Midway and Amusement Park. Apparently it’s the only stop they make in the Okananagan, so even for the big kids this year will be an event you do NOT want to miss.
My second show today was a birthday party show for a 7 year old girl who invited over 11 of her closest friends. The show went really well and everyone had a blast. I’m constantly tweaking various tricks on my show, and there’s one routine that I’ve been tweaking recently and I’m very very happy with the results.
