Upcoming Public Appearances

Well, my show at the Apollo Theatre in Peoria went well. And now that it's over, I'm looking forward to a few other public performances in the coming months.
  • July 11 and 12th I'll be doing two shows each day at this year's Marshall-Putnam County Fair.
  • On July 17, I'm performing in a special FREE CONCERT at 5 Points Washington, called The Art of Music and Magic.
  • On August 1, I'll be performing at 2-Cylinder Days at the John Deere Historic Site in Grand Detour, IL.
  • And I'm really excited to announce we've just confirmed I'll also be back at 5 Points Washington for my own The ART of Magic! one man theatre show on September 19.
Since most of my work in the past few years has been at private and corporate events, it's a little more rare to be able to see me at public venues, so I'm really glad to let everyone know about these. If you need more information about any of these events, feel free to call me at 309-647-3692, or send me an email.

Social Media and Networking

I'm always looking for better ways to stay in touch with my clients, friends, and anyone else interested in my entertainment programs and events.

I just found an interesting statistic. According to a recent survey, a majority of meeting planners are using online social media sites as ways of keeping touch with customers and event attendees. 61% use Facebook, 58% for LinkedIn, but only 13% are on Twitter.

If you're on one of the social media sites, and you'd like to stay in touch, keep up to date on my activities, or just follow me on any of my various social media pages, you can become a "friend" on my MySpace page, or my Facebook page, connect with me on LinkedIn, or follow my "tweets" on Twitter.

Oh, and if you'd like to stay up to date more directly, you can subscribe to my email list, and receive my email newsletter The Magic Word, by sending me an email asking to be added to the list. For immediate attention, put "Subscribe to MW" in the subject line.
