Mike and I use a lot of music in our performances. I know that might seem odd for a comedy and magic show, but it adds another layer that really completes the picture. After doing this for decades we’ve become experts at combining our comedy and magic with music.
Twenty eight years ago when we did our first “Double Vision Magic” events in Saskatchewan, the sound was supplied via the venues sound technicians using our music cue sheet. An example: Cue – 1) When Mike says “and now something using a frying pan, hula hoop and a $100.00 bill” – play #4 song. Occasionally, the technician wouldn’t be at his station and would miss the cue, or accidentally start playing the music early, or at the wrong volume, or the wrong song or….you get the idea.
Today, we use a remote control system and handle our own cues, volume etc… It makes a HUGE difference and adds to the production value of our show.
However, it does take a long time to find just the right tune. Like pairing the right wine with a meal, a wrong choice can still get by, but things wont’ taste quite right. So, along with our own sound system, lights, backdrop, banners and the vital, “twins, magic, LOL”, we also bring that extra element for your ears to enjoy.
Our clients, not only in Saskatchewan, but across North America, have come to trust our act as one they can rely upon to deliver great, “clean” entertainment. We work hard to combine our original twin magic with music, clean comedy, and audience participation. We are a professional magic act. Continue reading That’s a great trick! Are you a magician? Not quite.
Whenever, we hear a comment from a client like “that was an incredible magic show, very entertaining!”, we know we’ve achieved our three key objectives.
Whether you’re a public speaker, performer, or doing a “live” webinar, being seen, being heard and being good would seem to be automatic. Unfortunately, we’ve seen many presenters at conferences/conventions have two out of three, and that’s not good enough. Continue reading “An incredible magic show…”
