Magic in Half Moon Bay. A great time in a beautiful setting.

It has been a busy performing schedule in the last few weeks! For a guy who is supposed to be semi-retired apparently someone didn’t get the memo! On the 6th-7th and 8th of November I performed three shows at the wonderful Coastal Repertory Theatre in Half Moon Bay. It is a jewel box of a theatre and it was a delight to perform there.

IMG_3844The show was the 4th annual installment of the event and every detail was beautifully handled by its producer Steve Shufton who was a delight to work with. Magicians are probably familiar with Steve from his online magic company that produces a great collection of magical releases. Steve was kind enough to gift me an assortment of his magical effects and I was very impressed with his product line. He is a really good magical thinker with a fine mind for commercial and direct magic. I am looking forward to working with his routines and beginning to present them to audiences. You can check out his magic line at I will be writing more about them in the near future.

One of the joys of this gig was that I got to perform with my good buddy Fielding IMG_3833West. Fielding and I have been dear friends for 33 years but this was the first time we have had a chance to work together and it was worth the wait. Fielding is a terrific performer who was a huge hit with this audience. We each performed 50 minute sets and then closed the show by joining forces onstage for a grand finale involving his long suffering partner Bob the Bird! I am still slightly deaf from firing the cannon onstage that propelled Bob into Fielding’s mouth and ultimately into a crystal casket! Rounding out the bill was the delightful juggling act of Ben Farber and his beautiful wife Jessica.

During the course of the engagement we were visited by a wonderful array of Bay area magicians including three of my very favorite performers– the dynamic Jay Alexander, and the beautiful and talented Jade with her magic computer wiz husband Mathew Holtsman What a perfect group to lunch with. I also got to reconnect with my old Magic Castle pal Bruce Sinclair, the fabulous Phil Ackerly and also got to meet my Facebook friend Alan Sands in person. It was like a mini-magic convention and I really enjoyed myself. The background of Half Moon Bay made it just perfect and I want to thank Steve for inviting me to be part of the proceedings.
