Banachek, I know you helped out in a semi-private convention shortly ago (cruelly timed just as I got my baby girl).

When is the next time we mentally challenged can experience you in action?! We all would like to have our cutlery and keys ruined by you...

Greetings,

I have had the pleasure of seeing Banachek a number of times, from his complete show to his recent performance at Monday Night Magic. I will tell you that he is always incredible...

But just when I thought it could not get any better, I was fortunate to see his lecture at the 72 Hours Mentalism Gathering in New Hampshire in October. To hear how his mind works is even more astounding. In all of my decades of creating/performing, I must say that I have not met anyone better.

If you have the opportunity to see him, do not pass it up.


Keep the change,
Rick Maue

Thanks guys, I blush.

I do not have any definite plans at this moment for another convention. I have been approached by the TAOM for 1995. I may make a European lecture tour. But I have something in the works that I am very excited about.

Many of you know that I worked a show with Gerry McCambridge for a while. Many also know that I lectured at the 72 hrs primarily due to my friendship with Andy Leviss.

Well.. and this is where the fun and interesting and exciting part comes in for me.

For years I have wanted to put on a convention, much like Docc Hillford, Tony Andruzzi and so on. Problem was the amount of time. I did not have time to do it by myself. Soo... Gerry, Andy and I have decided to put on an annual convention for mentalists. It will be invitation only, but those who belong to the nailwriter (www.nailwriter.com) will already be automatically invited simply because they had to pass intensive question and prove they have been performing mentalism for a while and performing it well. And that they have the knowledge as well. Sort of a rite of passage if you will.

This is very exciting to me. On the other hand, beginners will not be able to attend as we hope it to be a pretty intensive convention with a lot of knowledge shared by those in attendance. We are banding about with putting a video tape together at each convention that will sell outside the mentalist only group, sort of an annual video that would be a group disccussion on one or two topics. This would help to keep costs down each year and get others interested.


Others will have to wait and see me in Europe next summer or elsewhere as Lecturing is not really all that lucrative and is usually done more for the love of our art and sharing with others than for the money. By the way, if you are in Europe and have connections for haveing me come and lecture, please contact Scott Wells.

If you would like to see me perform I suggest you go to my web site and see when I am in your area. Visit about once a month as it gets updated frequently.

How frustrating to check out your performance schedule and see that you were at "The Bob" in Grand Rapids earlier this year!!! I LOVE that place and have thought much about doing some "table hopping" there (but being about 50 miles away and with Michigan Winters...I'd WORRY alot about getting to and from "work"!)...but GLAD to see you're scheduled for Holland, Mi in May!!!! That's also close by and I WON'T miss you then (just gotta find out there "where and what time"!!??)

that would be great...but ONLY if it didn't cause a problem for you in anyway!!! I could always bring some of my stuff along for those that are scared by what you do!! (just sorta half kidding!!) I do have some stuff that I've "invented" or want to try out that I'd love to show you while you're this close by, maybe something could work out there?????
