Telling Tales

“You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone's soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows what they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift.”
― Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

Tyroni's Update

As many of you will know, Tyroni's Italian Cafe in Bartonville has been a regular performance spot for me for the past nine years. Starting this month, we'll be making some changes in my schedule there.

So please note that if you were planning to come see me at what would have been my normal spot this Wednesday, April 1, I won't be there.

Rather than the same monthly spot I've been doing for some time, I'll be appearing on "special-event nights" that will be announced through the Tyroni's website and mailing list.  I'll also be announcing my dates here on my blog, on my Facebook page, and my other social media. Stay tuned for further updates for specific dates and times...

New Restaurant FREE SHOW Contest

Would you like to wow your friends by winning an astounding free magic show from yours truly? I'm currently seeking to develop relationships with a couple of new restaurants for regular close up magic performances and in-house promotions. And you can help! I do have a few candidate restaurants that I'm talking with now, but I'm looking for other ideas as well.

Here's the Contest:
Do you know someone who owns a restaurant that would like to dramatically increase their repeat business? Or can you think of a restaurant where you'd like to see me perform?  If you suggest a restaurant and your suggestion turns into a regular performance spot for me, I'll treat you and your guests to my Close up Magic Show (ideal for small, intimate groups... and is guaranteed to blow them away!), and it's on me!

My restaurant magic promotions are geared to help the right restaurants increase their business, generate powerful word-of-mouth advertising, and leave customers absolutely raving about the great time they had, and just dying to tell their friends about it. In addition to my unforgettable magic and my ability to make customers feel they've been treated like royalty, I also provide a variety of valuable promotional tools, publicity, and marketing services. It's literally a no-brainer PR, marketing, and promotional campaign, all at a price that's ridiculously affordable for what I offer.

Ideal Restaurant Candidates:
  • Within 40 miles of Canton (could include Peoria, Morton, Macomb, Galesburg, East Peoria, Pekin, etc., etc.)
  • A fun, friendly atmosphere bar and grill, sports bar restaurant, or other similar entertainment-oriented eatery. Family-friendly but with a bar crowd can also work.
  • Prefer locally owned, but chains with strong local ties might also work well.
  • Should have a strong, loyal following but with some room for improvement.
  • Preferred customer base:  upper middle income, professionals.
So have you got the perfect place in mind? Think you've got that free show all sewn up? EMAIL ME your suggestions today!  Send as many suggestions as you like, and if one of them turns into a new performance relationship for me, you'll get that FREE CLOSE UP MAGIC SHOW!

Winners will be announce here on my blog, as well as on my Facebook page and other social media sites.
