Magic at Menchie's in Melbourne Florida

known as magic that can happen right in your hands.  Years ago I used to perform this type of magic down the street at Frankie’s Wings and had an awesome group of spectators that gathered every Tuesday for the special on wings and the show that followed.  With your help, I’d like to start the same kind of following at this Specialty Frozen Yogurt Shop.  My kids love going here anyway, so now I get to have fun too!  Stop on by and have some fun with me as this will not just be for kids.  I will be packing a magical entertainment for people of all ages and I am looking forward to seeing you there!

 

 

Happy 1st Birthday AJ

I wanted to send a huge thanks out to AJ who honored with by allowing me to perform at his birthday party. The best part was when he helped me turn his Dad into a rabbit! The best part for me was the interaction from the children. They were all outstanding, great helpers and of course excellent assistants. Each and everyone of them will enjoy their magic trick that they received and with adult supervision, they can watch the video explanation of how to do their magic trick that they all received.

Father & Son at 1st birthday!

Great food, outstanding music and of course fabulous entertainment. Everyone laughed and had a great time, even Andy.

Contagious Laughter

Next year we will bring in the big cooling fans from the NFL games! If you were there then you know what I mean. It was 97 degrees with a “feel like” temperature of 110! I felt like jumping in Lake Washington but decided that I would just wait to get home and jump in my pool. This was a hot weekend, however I had a great time and would like to thank all of you that attended. Don’t forget to click on the side of this page and rate my performance at your party. Thanks and see you next year!

Birthdays, Bikinis, Balloons and Palm Trees

Everyone had fun at this party from the young to old and everyone in between. The giant water slide kept everyone cool and I made them all look cool. We had plenty of balloon hats from elephants, monkeys, giraffes, princesses, super heros, villains, and this unique invention that was dreamed up on the spur of the moment. They wanted a hat that would connect them all together, so I suggested that they each be part of the base of a palm tree that would interconnect them all.

Private Balloon Island for these Swimmers to Share!

As you can see they were all great tree anchors! It was especially fun watching them try to walk around after being connected. They actually did quite well and I was impressed.

End of Summer Blow Out!

The top 5 Reasons to Party in the last 6 months of the year

2. Halloween

3. End of Summer/Back to School

4. Labor Day

5. Thanksgiving

This is a reminder that we are heading into the last 6 months of the year which are the busiest months of the year for the best entertainers in the business.  I’m sure that you won’t want to settle for what’s left so book now and put that worry to rest.

Plan early and book often! See you soon!

Elvis Should Leave the Building

Sometimes you just can’t pass up a great deal. Two for the price of one is a great deal. Half price Wednesdays are a good deal. 10 cent wings are an outstanding deal. 5 dent drafts are a dangerous deal!  Heck I used to drive miles when I was in college and knew exactly where to go every night of the week  just to find these deals on food and drinks. When it comes to entertainment though…Beware of the Deals!  Simple reason for this is that you get what you pay for, and that is exactly what happened when the Super Flea in Melbourne hired this act….Flea Market Elvis or Flelvis as his faithful fan calls him. All kidding aside, the point is, knowing what you are paying for ahead of time can sometimes be difficult especially when hiring a live performer. Check out the videos they have to post and see if this is what you would like at your event. Pay close attention to how the audience is reacting or not reacting and imagine this being your event. If this is the reaction you are looking for then you are probably choosing the right entertainer. Watch the audience in the video below to see what I am referring too. Good luck, have fun and I’ll see you at your next successful event!

When planning a party there are many things that we know you must take into account when trying to prepare that perfect event. For instance, making sure we have the cake and ice cream ready, party favors at the ready and games ready to play are some that we often think of first. What I would like to like to remind you about are the often overlooked ones that can really throw  a wrench into your whole time table if you would happen to forget them.

Birthday Wish

5. Scheduled time the Entertainer will appear should be approximately 1 hour after the party starts. This will account for late arrivals to your party and take away the stop in the show or the entertainment.

4. Have a list ready with someone who will write down each present as it is opened and the persons name who brought the gift. This makes the whole Thank You process easy the next day when you are trying to remember who brought what and the generic Thank You for the gift thank you that is sent out when you forget who did what.

3. Remember when hiring a balloon twister, account for 5 to 7 minutes per child of time that you will need the twister for and then add on another 30 minutes to an hour (depending on party size) for balloon surgery or replacement or wounded or KIA balloon creations.  In other words, if you are having the average size  party of 10-15 kids, then an hour and a half to 2 hours should be the time allotted for a good twister.  Maybe a little longer for one with advanced creations.

2. Have all pets safely kept away in another room if the balloon twisting will be inside.  Many kids running around with these balloon creations could scare them and animal versus balloon always results in animal winning that popping contest.  You won’t want your new puppy eating latex and getting sick or worse.

1.  Give yourself enough time after the party to relax. You deserve it! After all, you just had Vynn Credible dazzle your guests and they all left happy, so why should you get to take some well deserved rest!

Have a great event and see you soon!

Don’t Hire A Magician!!

5. You have a Mime Fetish.

4. You’d rather see if the stories are true about how many kids have a fear of Clowns!

3.  All those bounce houses blowing away with kids in them doesn’t scare you.

2. 15 kids running through your house with nothing to hold there attention is NO Problem!

1. No one ever explained that Magicians are not supposed to just trick you.

I know that many of you already know me and have even seen me perform many times for one event or another and are thinking that I must have bumped my head before adding this post, however I am serious.  From Birthday Party Moms to Full Time Professional Event Planners, there is someone right now looking around on the internet for the best price they can find for a magician.  While there is no Orbitz or Travelocity to find the best price on a magician, I’m here to to help you understand that you are going about it all wrong.  Price should not be the main concern, although I do understand that we all have budgets.  However, even budgets have a high end and a low end. While riding a bicycle from Miami to Jacksonville may save me a ton of money on gas, I think I’d rather spend the extra money and drive a car or even take the bus.

Let’s get back to the main point, Don’t Hire a Magician! What you really are looking for is a professional entertainer  If you think about it long enough, you know deep down that this is what you were really looking for to begin with and just didn’t realize it.  An Entertainer is someone that will take their audience on a magical journey in their mind.  The day to day troubles are forgotten for a moment as the mind is allowed to wonder and believe that something extraordinary has just happened which creates a child like amazement in each of us.  This is what memories are made of and when the weeks, months and years pass after your event, people will be talking of that moment and what a great time they had there.  When they reminisce about this event they will then remember who put this fantastic time together.  If this is a corporate event, what easier way could you be on someones mind all the time. Oh, I  know, that fancy pen with your logo on it they picked up at your booth won’t even make the trip home. In fact, they left it on the table for the waitress after signing their receipt. Or maybe the party favor bag you put together going to 5 different stores to find the right themed items for the birthday  party. Wrong, that was shredded in the car on the way home. I’ve worked the corporate world and spent many business trips in Las Vegas collecting all the freebies from the vendors only to give them to the kids when I got home and never looked at them again.  Speaking of kids, my have attended many parties in the past and they could never tell you what trinket they brought home before.  However, every single time my kids bring home a friend they all ask me to show them something magical because they remember the time I entertained them at their friends birthday or the show at the school or the 4th of July party or…the list goes on and on.

Let’s create memories together that turn into something special.  After all, do you want someone to think for a brief moment that they were just tricked OR wouldn’t you rather have your friends, family and coworkers talking about how funny it was when Vynn Credible was trying to escape from the straight jacket and his arm fell off!

See you soon!

Vynn Credible Magic Show Clips

Just a few short clips from the Vynn Credible magic show, however the real good stuff has been kept out to show at your next party. Booking Vynn Credible is easy and we now accept credit cards to reserve your show date.

Are you paying attention!

Recently, I was talking with a few friends and fellow magicians after attending a lecture given by Jonathan Levitt and we were discussing how easy it is to become distracted.  For instance, below is a video with people bouncing a basketball.  Half of the people are wearing black shirts and half are wearing white shirts.   Count the number of times the people wearing a white shirt bounce the ball to each other.

Did you get it right?  Did you rewind the video because you couldn’t believe how easy it was to distract you?

Here is another one that Magician Bob Brizendine brought to my attention.  You may have even seen the color changing deck trick before.  See if you can count how many times the color changes. I think you will be surprised.

Did you catch them all? Misdirection is truly a required skilled art that every magician must learn if he seriously wants to become a real entertainer. This is accomplished in many different ways, from voice inflection, to an actual touch, glance or look.

Appreciation for the art as a whole has really taken over my experience of watching others perform. I look for the entertainment and try to learn from those that really “get it”” because that is what the lay audience is really looking for when they come to a show. They want to be the side of the entertainer because people like to be part of a success.

Why else would everyone around the world want to be a Pittsburgh Steeler fan? It sure isn’t because Pittsburgh is a vacation destination. It is because they want to associate themselves with the success of a team that is about to win it’s 7th Superbowl Championship. All of my friends know that I have been a fan my whole life and just had to find a way to cheer on the Black and Gold as Superbowl Sunday quickly approaches.

Hobe Sound Golf Course – Celebrities Fore Kids

Magic at the Hobe Sound Golf Club

It was a beautiful day to be out on the links, but we were having a blast in the club house.  Celebrities Fore Kids is a great organization that I have had the privilege of meeting today.  The purpose of Celebrities Fore Kids, Inc. is to improve the quality of life for children with cancer, and their families, who live on the Treasure Coast of Florida. Presently pediatric oncology services are not available in the Treasure Coast. To further this purpose, the organization works closely with agencies, physicians, schools, hospitals and pediatric care centers.  Their goal is to offer financial, emotional, and social support to these children and their families.

Celebrities Fore Kids

 

I got to meet some great families today and would like to think that I had a part in the big smiles that I saw on all their faces.  Lots of audience participation was on the venue today and I think it we can say that everyone had a chance to participate in one way or another.   I had so much fun as a Family Magician today and look forward to more of these opportunities.

Now begins the prepartion for next years event, since I have already been told to set the date.  Stu has even started to get prepare by pretending to be a very still rabbit. He really impresses me that when it is showtime he behaves so well.  Here at the house, I am constantly having to tell him to get out of the dog’s food dish.  My dog eats cheeseburger flavored dog food. Maybe Stu is trying to tell me he wants to go out to McDonalds!  Either way, he is one crazy rabbit here at home.

Listen to what someone had to say after the show!
