Big News! The Music City Magic crew took all three places in the Stage Comp at Magi-Fest. We came to rule the school and I think it is safe to say that the mission was accomplished!

Taking third was Robert Jones who did a traditional manipulation rouitne. His linking rings were especially fantastic, showcasing some original, never before seen links and displays! Very classy.

Taking second was Lonny Devine and "Miss Direction." Lonny and Krista do a very cool, hip, contemporary style of magic and illusion. For the contest Lonny presented his Robot coin manip act. It features great jumbo coin manip fused with "robotic" dance. Very cool.


John "Big Daddy Cool" Pyka took the 1st Place Gold! BDC broght his "A" game with his fusion of vocal music and cool magic - innovative dancing cane, knife manip, multiplying cigars, jumbo coin production and vanishs, and of course soaring vocal music so spot on that some people actually asked whether of not it was live or lip synced! Very swingin!

Also competing was MCM's Jason Michaels and Lance Johnson. Jason did a very upbeat version rope routine set to Aerosmith's "Walk This Way." Lance was the real talk of the convention with his cigarette manip act. Lance is a Chavez graduate, and honors the tradition of the classic Chavez cigarette manip act, with his own contemporary twist. He performed it to "Smokin' In The Boys" room complete with leather jacket and exploding toilet! Lance stopped the show to allow time for the smoke to subside! Ha! Great act!

Oh, and a huge thank you to Miss Direction for serving as my assistant onstage as well! I love ya baby!

Congratulations to all of the guys and gals with the gang who came to hang and bang with the coolest entourage in magic - Music City Magic, the New Magic Order! They are Jason Michaels, Scott Cantrell, Lonny Devine & Miss Direction, Lance Johnson, Robert Jones, Amy Kam and John Pyka.

...On a personal note. This was my official final performance as I am taking a sabatical from performing as I rehab my back and focus on promoting my new book. My goal was to go out with a bang by winning the gold and I did exactly what I set out to do! The good news is that I came away from the weekend with very little pain. Looks like the rehab is starting to work! Hopefully I will be swingin solid sooner than later!
Swing hard, swing often, and we'll catch ya on the Flip-Side!
