Long Busy Day Today, Having Some Fun Looking Over Some New Magic Material

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

Today has been a LOOONG Day for me!  I stayed busy non-stop it seems.  This blog post is the last thing I need to do before I call it a night.  Tomorrow, I will be performing at Marco’s Pizza off Russell Parkway in Warner Robins, GA.  I would encourage everybody to come out to Marco’s Pizza tomorrow (Jan 31) at the Russell Parkway location from 6pm-8pm for some very very good food and to see some fun and amazing magic!  It’s a place that has a great family atmosphere and magic is great entertainment for the family as well which adds to the family atmosphere of Marco’s Pizza.

I’ve also been running around filing the annual report for my company and then coordinating with a local print shop to get some restaurant table cards printed up.  Then paying some company bills.  I did quite a bit today, though I can’t recall every last thing I had to do, but it was very long and exhausting day.

I got an opportunity to look at some new magic material and there is a great card trick I have not practiced or performed yet.  I want to take some time to practice and perform this particular card trick and it’s the kind of card trick that is new and different from any of the other card tricks I have seen before.  I think it will be great!  Paul Harris, who is a magician highly recommended the trick and after seeing another magician perform the trick, I agree with Paul.  Well, it’s time for me to close this blog post here!  Good night!

Had a Great Time Tonight At Applebee’s

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

I had a ball at Applebee’s tonight performing some new magic tricks I have been practicing.  Part of the fun of this business is the creative side.  You have to have a creative side to this business because I am now developing a following at Applebee’s in Macon, GA so the regulars that keep coming back want to see something that different.  The creative side of this business is what makes it a lot of fun and is very rewarding.  You get to practice some new magic tricks and perhaps invent your own magic tricks and then after practicing them and showing them to friends and family, you can take the new tricks to the restaurants and show the regulars something new and watch them be totally amazed!  Boatloads of fun.  Practicing the new magic tricks and eventually I am going to invent my own magic tricks and try them out on close friends and family before taking them to the restaurants I work.  I am very pleased with how the regulars responded to these new magic tricks tonight!

Watching the Movies “Goodfellas” and “A Bronx Tale”

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

I have always been a sucker for mafia movies.  Both of these movies are pretty awesome.  One of my favorite parts of the movie in “A Bronx Tale” is when the working man father explains to the kid who is the main character in the movie about how mob guys are feared but the working man is the real tough guy because he gets up every day to break his back to earn a living and he is genuinely loved and respected where the mob guy is just feared.  “Goodfellas” is based on a true story and the main character in that movie seems to be based on real life guy who according to wikipedia died this past year in 2012.  Crazy how fast time flies by and how decades now seem like they were just yesterday.  Gee, I am getting older now though the true old folks will tell me I am just still a young fella.  Anyway, time to close this blog post here!  Take care everybody!

Been Practicing and Learning New Magic Tricks and Material All Day

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

Today is Sunday!  So it’s a great day for me to practice some new magic tricks and also come up with new magic material.  I have some very good and new material for my restaurants, plus, I have been practicing magic tricks which will be great for my close up show.  It was actually a lot of fun.  One of the magic tricks I have learned a better way to present but I have never performed it for any of my restaurants.  This particular magic trick is going to be presented to the IBM Ring 9 to hopefully get membership as well as be part of my magic show.  It’s a very good trick and I have worked out the kinks in it as well.

I have also been working on a great card trick routine which is ideal for restaurants but I have not performed the full routine yet in the restaurants though I have performed parts of it.  I believe these key aspects will make this routine go from good to awesome.  Another card trick I will start work on tomorrow will also be ideal for restaurants and cocktail parties.  This is great fun!  Now, I am getting more more and into the creative side of the house of magic since my skills on the business side of magic have gotten better to where I can then focus more attention on the more fun, creative aspects of magic.

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

There is a bunch of movies I would like to see.  One of them is the A-Team.  My wife told me that it has already been in the movie theaters, so I guess it much be coming out in Redbox.  Perhaps I can rent it there.  Another movie I would like to see is “Zero Dark Thirty.”  I am an Afghan War vet, so, it would be interesting to see this movie.  Then there is “Lincoln.”  Another movie I hear that is great that I would like to see.  So many great movies out there that I want to watch.  I have a lot of catching up to do.  Anyway, time for me to split!  Good night!

Will Be Performing At Marco’s Pizza This Thursday January 31st

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

This coming January 31st, I will be performing at Marco’s Pizza from 6pm-8pm.  This is a new restaurant I will be performing for so I am looking forward to it.  The pizza and hot wings at Marco’s is very good and awesome!  I personally recommend this place and I especially enjoy their hot wings.   In addition, I hope that the company will be able to offer some Marco’s Pizza coupons in the newsletter, though is for sure until the coupons are in the newsletter.  Anyway, this is going to be a short post as it is late and I have to get some sleep.  Y’all take care!

Watching American Idol And Crazy Nicki Minaj

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

I am sitting here right now watching “American Idol” and they have this crazy rapper named Nicki Minaj on it.  She has her hair colored pink and is wearing some kind of crazy, weird looking outfit.  My wife was telling me she is a drama queen and I can definitely see that by watching this particular episode of “American Idol.”

Anyway, I don’t watch “American Idol” too much but Nicki Minaj brings some colorful crazy personality to the show while judging those who come on the show to try out.  Keith Urban is also one of the judges and my wife tells me he is from Australia.  Had no idea Australia had country music.  Learn something new everyday!

Attended IBM Ring 9 Meeting

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

I attended the IBM Ring 9 meeting for January in Atlanta, GA last night!  Really had a good time.   I learned  a different way of “springing the cards” from one of the magicians there and his way was much better than the way I learned.  So now, I have been practicing the new way of “springing the cards.”  I also taught him some card sleights that I did very well and so he was practicing the new card sleights.  I was asked by Joe Turner, a famous Atlanta magician to do a trick with him and his trick was voted as the best trick for the new trick category at the meeting.  It was a very impromptu trick and I am not sure how he did it.  It was great fun being part of his trick though and his performance was very good.  All in all, Atlanta has a lot of great talent at their IBM ring and any magician who wants to learn a lot can learn a lot from those guys.  I was nominated for membership, so next month, I have to give a 5 minute performance and hopefully I will get voted into membership.  Looking forward to next month!

Looking Forward To Attend Atlanta Magic Club Meeting Tomorrow

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

I will be attending the magic club meeting in Atlanta tomorrow with a few of my fellow magicians.  Looking forward to it!  Atlanta has some very good magicians and I attended one of their magic club meetings one time already.   Whenever I had a question on a card sleight of hand move, that particular magic club had some very good card magicians who could easily break down the sleight of hand move and explain how it is done and then show you how the move should look like in real time by performing the move.

A few of my magician friends come from the Middle Georgia area and I have known them for a long time.  This will be their first time attending the meeting of this particular magic club.  Should be interesting and fun!  Time for me to end this blog post here.  Good night y’all!

Performed At Marco’s Pizza in Warner Robins This Past Friday

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

Having a little computer trouble as I got a blue screen.  Seems to be working fine now!  Got very good anti-virus on my computer so I am pretty sure it wasn’t any sort of virus, but sometimes HP laptops have been known to have hard drive problems.  Hopefully it will be OK for here on out.

Anyway, this past Friday, had the opportunity to perform at Marco’s Pizza for about an hour located off Russell Parkway in Warner Robins, GA.  They were pretty busy so I was busy too keep the customers entertained.  Brought my family out as well to dine at Marco’s to help them drum up business.  The food was excellent!  Loved their pizza and hot wings!  Awesome hot wings!  I am a huge hot wing fanatic.

Customers over at Marco’s seem to really enjoy the magic and wrote comments on their checks indicating how much they loved the magic according to the GM that works there.  So, that’s good news!   Glad to hear the customers really loved the magic!  I enjoyed performing for them and had boatloads of fun!  Well, time for me to close this post here!  Good night!
