*Life’s a Beach by Gary Jones (Volume one)
Gary Jones is a full time professional magician of many years standing, and he is a man who is widely respected for both his performing skills and his creative way of thinking. This book brings you the full illustrated details of a large selection of Gary’s worker routines and moves, a couple of effects from some of Gary’s good friends in magic, as well as many tips and much advice on performance and even what it takes to be a pro entertainer.
In this 136 page volume you will learn the secrets behind Gary’s sleight free coins through table, you will learn a really clever card to wallet idea that removes the need for palming, a simple yet effective method to perform a bottle production, mental effects which are easy to do yet baffling to the audience, as well as a strong collection of other commercial card and coin routines.
When you are a pro entertainer you get to know exactly what works with the lay public and what doesn’t. You hone your methods so that they are practical yet strong, and you create magic plots that are clear and easy to follow. The material in this book reflects these principles throughout and will delight anyone looking for new worker tricks to add to their repertoire.
*Life’s a Beach by Gary Jones (Volume Two)
Magicseen is delighted to present a second volume featuring the magic of top UK professional close up magician Gary Jones.
Gary is one of those performers who is equally at home presenting magic to lay people or to a room full of magicians, and his creative output reflects those two requirements. Some of the magic in this collection is designed to intrigue and fool magicians, while other effects are fast, direct and perfect for working under almost any commercial conditions.
What all the magic has in common is that the methods have been constructed to extract the maximum effect for the minimum of fuss.
Some of Gary’s handlings do require some sleight of hand – he is very fond of palming cards, for instance – but equally, there are other ideas which are basically self working! So there’s something for everyone here.
The vast majority of the 40 effects included here are with cards, but within that Gary has provided a huge variety of plot and magic that always has a big surprise finish. Some of the effects will go straight into your working repertoire because they are just too good to miss!
If you love close up magic that has attack and impact, you are going to love Life’s a Beach Volume 2.
