Last night I performed strolling magic for the Seattle Meeting Planner’s International (MPI) banquet at the Seattle Sheraton. It was a Masquerade Ball theme and everyone was dressed up. Thanks to Frontline Photos for the picture.
The food was incredible. As you can imagine, when you get a bunch of sales and catering professionals together to plan their own party it’s not oing to disappoint. There were various cooking and serving stations set up everywhere it seemed! They had even cooked a full pig and were making delicious little sandwiches.
Thanks to Troy McVicker with EventSource Northwest for the referral and suggesting me. He’s a great emcee and made a huge difference in the flow and fun feel. He’s also one of the hardest working networkers around!
Yesterday: two shows in Olympia and the evening in Seattle. Today: an afternoon and evening show in Shelton. Thursday: noon meeting in Seattle with magician buddy Darrell. Friday: show in Duvall. Saturday…
Magic in the Museum
Families are invited to “Magic Tricks and Secrets Live”, a combination magic show, hands-on workshop, and DVD release party on Saturday, November 21, 2009 from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm at the Hands-On Children’s Museum in downtown Olympia (106 11th Ave SW). Magician Jeff Evans performs shows at noon and 2:00 pm. Admission is $7.95/person, $4.95 for toddlers, and free for Hands-On Children’s Museum members.
Kids learn magic with rubber bands, paperclips, playing cards, and more. All props and hands-on instruction are provided and kids go home with a “Mystery Dollar” and “Levitating Magician” cut-out. Magic workshops are recommended for ages 6+. Magic Tricks and Secrets DVDs are available for purchase at the Museum that day.

The Magic Tricks and Secrets DVD series is created by Jeff Evans and George Ford. “Living Room Magic volumes 1 and 2” include magic with everyday items you already have around the home; string, playing cards, paper, and more. Some effects are impromptu and can be done anytime, anywhere: others require some practice, but are well within the ability of anyone willing to put in a little bit of practice.
