Hoping To Land a Fine Dining Restaurant Gig

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

Well, my main focus right now is to land a fine dining restaurant gig.  I imagine it’s a little different than working your typical restaurant but I am definitely looking forward to eventually landing a fine dining restaurant and entertaining guests there.  I have been told that fine dining establishments are very sophisticated places which require sophisticated entertainment.  I am up to the challenge and the art of magic, sleight of hand magic works in a fine dining establishment.   I’ll probably look to some of the fine dining establishments in the Atlanta area, so it should be fun and interesting.

I Am On Twitter

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

Hello folks!  I just wanted to write and tell everybody I am also on Twitter and tweeting away!  Well, maybe not tweeting away too much but tweeting away reasonably enough.   You can send me a tweet @WilliamDavenpo2 and follow me.  While I am on Twitter I don’t hit you with much marketing, but once and awhile I’ll post a bit.ly link that leads to my blog but most of the time I just try to enjoy “the party” on twitter while not crashing “the party” with too many marketing messages.  Recently I followed @SunTzuDaily and @SunTzuSaid as well as @ZENandTAO to get a daily dose of Twitter wisdom.  Anyway, I look forward to some of my blog readers following me on Twitter (right now I am still trying to build up some blog readers)!

One of the Things that the Art of Magic Teaches

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

“Knowing that knowing is the unknowable is true perfection.”  -Chuang Tzu.

I think the Taoist Chuang pretty much summed up one of things that the art of magic teaches all of us (that is when the art of magic is well practiced and performed correctly).  Knowing that knowing is unknowable is true perfection.  I am not bragging but making an observation from my past gigs performing; but I have seen some curmudgeons who have lived life a long time, old and crusty, tough, experienced, hard to impress, have seen it all and thought that they could see through just about anything and yet, in the end, they too had learned the same conclusion as Chuang Tzu.  That’s one of the things that I really enjoy about the art of magic is that it fools me all the time and I love it.  Even when I master new tricks and principles in the art of magic, it is always teaching me something new and there are always new tricks that come out that just totally and completely fool me.

Good Times At Wow Cafe and Wingery in Warner Robins, GA

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

I had a good time performing at Wow Cafe and Wingery in Warner Robins GA today.  Wow Cafe and Wingery has a great social atmosphere with awesome food.  If you haven’t been to Wow Cafe and Wingery then you are missing out big time.  The particular Wow that I work has a very laid back atmosphere where people like to sit down and watch sports while also having a brew.  Not to mention I have regulars who like to see what new magic tricks I have come up with to perform.  Anyway, it was a good night for me and I always look forward to performing at Wow Cafe.

Why Magic Is Awesome

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

I guess some people might be curious as to why magic is so awesome.  For me, the reason the art of magic is awesome because the magician seemingly defies the laws of science and what is impossible and does what the laws of science says nobody can do and what people know to be impossible.    A good magician accomplishes this while also entertaining.  The good magician entertains and creates unsolvable mystery both.

When people see a good magic trick, it inspires them, leaves them in awe and amazement and it breaks down their world view of reality and makes them realize that the human mind has no limitations and that nothing really is impossible.    The only barriers we have as people are the barriers we create and place on ourselves.  I think anybody has unlimited potential to do great things and the art of magic helps to illustrate that possibility and potential.  The art of magic is also about sharing, which is why I like to involve my audience in the magic tricks I perform.  The magician shares a positive, amazing, entertaining moment with the audience he is performing for and part of misdirection for the magician is the redirection of attention off of himself and onto the audience members he is performing for.

So, in my opinion, audience participation and involvement in the magic tricks is essential.  I remember one of my fellow magicians once talked about the performance of close up magic that really their are no spectators because the idea of spectators means to be uninvolved and just watching from the sidelines.  However, when the audience participates in the magic tricks they become the stars of the show and part of the magic and also have more fun and are inspired and amazed.

Studying Comedy

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

I have just started taking a course in comedy at killerstandup.com.  Some of the material from the comedians was funny!  Anyway, this is going to help me become an even better magician.  Everybody loves comedy and a great laugh.   Probably one of the most enlightening things I have learned is that you can’t become a great comedian by writing jokes but great comedy seems to be more centered around just being yourself rather than acting like a “character” or taking on a “persona” or acting from some kind of script.  Anyway, I hope everybody out there is doing awesome!  I had a great day today.  Also, pretty soon, I will have a video up on my website so don’t forget to check out my video once I have it up!  Later!
