Jeff McBride public show...

In Magic Unmasked, McBride's magic moves far beyond mere tricks and illusions, engaging all the senses and the imagination to transport audiences into an enchanted realm. From his first appearance in a shower of fireflies through the rapid-fire production of a multitude of masks and persona's, the riveting drama of McBride's dynamic struggles with unseen powers keeps audiences on the edge of their seats. His whimsical and hilarious interactions with mysterious forces of nature -- and select audience members -- add the spice of comedy. Through it all, McBride's electrifying sleight of hand and spectacular grand illusions convey an uplifting and inspirational message: We are all magicians in a magical world - and nothing is impossible.

Our event this month will be held on August 18, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. will be held our usual meeting spot at Dicken’s Grill on Greenfield Avenue in West Allis. It is our buy-sell magic rummage-o-rama night. Bring your old magic tricks, props, books, videos, DVDs and other stuff(please no live animals).

Thanks to everyone who came on out in July for our informal get together. We had a great time. It was also a pleasure to see many of you at my Canada Day Celebration.

I should have by next week confirmation of our annual parlor night contest /show in September. I am also trying to secure a location for a show in October. Anyone with any suggestions, please contact me.

I will be contacting our younger members to discuss how to handle our location issues for those who find it difficult bring a parent to the venue for the meeting.

Don’t forget to check out the Houdini Club of Wisconsin who will be having their annual convention in Manitowoc over Labor Day weekend. If you can’t make it for the whole weekend, make sure to check out their open to the public shows on Friday and Saturday nights. See their website for further details.

Our condolences on the loss of Mark Bond. It was good to see so many of you at the funeral and other memorial events as a show of support to our fellow magician. I was fortunate to take a few lessons from Mark. He was a kind and patient teacher. I’m sure he will be missed as a vital part of the Milwaukee magic community.

Upcoming meeting’s theme's-

  • August: Buy, sell, swap night
  • September: Parlor contest
  • October: Spooky/Halloween

Brown prides himself on this show being family orientated and affirmed, “Our show defines magic as the late great magician Harry Houdini once said, what the eyes see and the ears hear, the mind believes. I am thrilled to perform magic over 100 times this summer because it will give people of all ages the chance to witness and enjoy the essence of Pure Live Magic.” This 90 minute show takes audiences on an extraordinary magical expedition that features new and original illusions, including the award winning “Washing Machine of DOOM” where Brown is locked inside a washing machine while it is on spin cycle. He tests his fate being strapped to “The Chair” and Browns magical Parakeet “Larry Bird” perform his own tricks!

Magic has been a part of Brown’s life for over 20 years, and he has won several first place awards for his miraculous uniqueness of illusions from the Houdini Club of Wisconsin.

Magic workshops for are available at the Geneva Theatre; classes are three hours, as well as the parents are welcome to stay and get involved if a child participates in the class. A range of tricks will be taught such as: rope and card tricks, rubber band and coin tricks and simple sleight of hand.
