Las Vegas Magic

Las Vegas Magician at School

Thompson Elementary School

Vynn Credible in Las Vegas performing magic at Thompson Elementary School.  What a great bunch of kids!  I got scooted around the school, performing for 3 different grade levels and having fun with kids, as well as getting a chance to do some close up and street magic tricks for the staff and office workers between shows.  There are more to magic shows than just balloon twisting and birthday parties and today I was about to prove that as I brought my style of comedy entertainment to my audience in the Magic Capital of the World, Las Vegas.

Las Vegas Teacher

Everyone wanted to experience the Magic of Vynn Credible

The teachers all wanted a chance to experience the wonderment and excitement of the magic as I strolled about the school whipping everyone into the frenzy of a magic show. Cards, coins, GIANT cards and other props were used to make the kids laugh, shout and clap.

I look forward to my next trip to Vegas to revisit with all my new friends, to see how they have grown (the children) and if they (the teachers and staff) are ready to let go of reality for a moment and enjoy another magical escape.

RBC Bank Family Fun Day

Twisting Balloons & Magic in Melbourne

Today I had a lot of fun meeting new people and twisting balloons for the local residents of Melbourne, Florida who were looking to have some fun at the Family Fun Day sponsored by RBC Bank.  The DJ did a great job promoting the different booths that were set up today including my own.  We even had an opportunity where I was able to draw a crowd for some close up street magic that, according to the DJ, made him feel like a kid again because he couldn’t believe what he was seeing!

That’s all part of the Vynn Credible experience!

Optical Illusion

Believe it or not, this image is not animated. The effect persists only in your peripheral vision; if you focus on any one of the spirals, it will stop moving!

Corporate Stage Comedy Magic

It’s not everyday that you get a 900 square foot Green Room fully stocked with every beverage you could ever wish for among other perks, but then again, it’s not everyday that you get to perform at the Ritz-Carlton.  Last month I got the honor of performing for the Georgia Health Care Association here on Amelia Island and met many wonderful people.  I went on stage after dinner for a crowd of over 500 and had a blast with the members of the audience during this comedy magic show.

Before hand, they had a cocktail hour that allowed me time to hop from group to group and perform some close up magic for many that were enjoying the “spirits” of the evening.  It’s funny when people tell you their favorite magician story.  Like the time this magician made them believe that the card they were holding was the one they originally picked, but then it changed.

Yeah, that one gets me all the time! :)

TropStock in Cocoa Village

October 1st, 2nd and 3rd will be the largest Tropical Rock Music Festival of the year and yours truly will be performing as well.  The exact day and time are still in the planning phase, however, sign up on the right hand side for the newsletter to be the first to know all the exact details.

Come out and have a great time supporting a worthwhile cause, a portion of the proceeds go to the Rachel Nates Breath of Hope Foundation.  This event has special meaning to me because Rachel was a friend mine who went on way to early for many of us.  But since there are plans for us that only one person in this world will ever know, she is now our angel looking out for all of us and encouraging everyone to become an organ donor.  Her legacy lives on and we will be spreading the word about her life, as this will also be the release of the film documentary about her.

Now the magic! This will be exciting because you know I love to do what I do and the more people the better.  Bring out your friends, family and kids because this is going to be a very Magical weekend!

Kids Birthday Party Fun

The Classic Egg Bag

Birthday parties are always so much fun and at times I wonder exactly who is having the most fun! :) The Egg Bag is classic fun and for those that do not know this particular trick…well book me for a show and find out. HA! Seriously though, it involves the appearance and disappearance of an egg. Every time you think you have it figured out, well…you don’t. It’s a great time and just one of the ways to get the audience involved in the show. My goal is always to get as many people involved in the show as possible which keeps the excitement level high and enjoyment at it’s peak.

Contact Me to book a show or inquiry about an event.

Engagement Party

Engagement Parties can be a lot of fun and this one was definitely a blast.

Pick a card, any card ladies!

Adults tend have a different perception to magic then children, so the approach must be completely different.  In most cases, they may have never seen me perform before or their experience with magic has not been a good one, so they immediately have a turn off to it.  There are a few easy ways to overcome this and get the audience on your side.

1.) I have found it is best to have 2 strong effects already in mind, one to lead in with and finally one to leave them wanting more.  The first trick must be very strong and usually something that happens in their hands that seems totally impossible.  This effect will immediately allow them to forget about reality for a moment and allow the possibility of other magic to just happen.

2.) Finally, finish just as strongly as you started and this will leave them wanting more as you leave to go on to your next group.

3.)  Only do 3 to 5 tricks depending on their length of time and move on.  You want to walk away before they do!

4.) One last idea is always have a few tricks that children like.  Even at Adult events, the children may be in another room hidden away.  Invite them out for for a few minutes to show them some magic.  The parents will follow them into the room you have selected and so will more people as they hear the laughter to see what is going on.  Follow up the children’s tricks with one or two quick stage style tricks that involve a few adults. Thank everyone for having you at the party and explain that you will be looking forward to meeting them all as you walk around to perform close up for them.  Now, many party goers know what you are there to do and since you have already entertained them they will be ready when you walk up to them later.

Have a Magical Day!

Adult Entertainment

It’s not what you think!  Kids aren’t the only ones that enjoy being entertained by a magician.  More and more adults are adding the Magical Entertainment of Vynn Credible to their event and the guests have a more memorable experience.  Saturday evening will be an exciting Engagement Party for 75 guests of the bride and groom to be and I have some amazing plans.  Just in case they are checking in on me, I don’t want to spoil it by giving away too much so watch for my posts on Sunday!

Recently though, I got to enjoy a baseball game from the VIP suites in the stadium.  Ameriprise Financial spiced up their exciting commodities and futures presentation by allowing me to warm up the room with my special corporate magic.   Their presentation was actually pretty cool as well.  I learned what a handful of those signals mean that the traders are using on the floor on Wall Street when you see those shots on TV.  It was amazing to see how fast he could rattle them off.  I bet he would have made one heck of a 3rd base coach!

Florida Magician Rocking the House Now!

I finally came to my senses and had my buddy Brandon from PAClicks give my site a face lift.  With my new site, I’ll be able to hookup with my faithful friends and fans using Twitter and Facebook, and be a lot better communicating with everyone.

It’s really awesome getting to see what a real, social media driven website has the potential to do, let alone realize that Google is in love with this blogging platform.

I’m looking forward to interacting with all of you more and will be in touch soon.

This is absolutely Vynn Credible!

–poof!  I’m gone!  :)
