Peoria Magicians Assembly

Creating magical experiences everywhere we go.


2014 July Meeting Report

Posted on November 24, 2014 at 7:25 AM

So much magic happening in Peoria! July has seen the following events: We had a 10 day run at the Heart of Illinois fair, with several PMA members taking a turn at performing on stage each day, plus many showing up to perform close-up magic in the entertainment tent. Rodney Nordstrom, Jay Zentko, Kyle Bassett, and Michael Baker performed at the Riverfront Museum in conjunction with the Ripley’s Believe it or Not exhibit. Plus, we have performed our summertime gig at the Farmers Market twice this month!


On top of that, we of course had our monthly board meeting and our regular meeting.


This month’s meeting theme was Magic & Music. To start the meeting, we introduced ourselves to several guests, who came to check us out after learning of us through some of the public events and from other members. It’s great to see all the new faces!


There was a brief bit of business to bring us up to speed on upcoming events, and to recap those just finished.


Jerry Tupper performed a very nice routine called, “The Mother of all Diamonds”, where several lumps of coal magically transform into a shimmering pile of diamonds, except for one that served as a lesson to the magician. Jerry had appropriate music playing in the background.


New member prospect, Matthew showed his chops by performing a coin in a nest of boxes, appearing cards, and a mentalism trick with numbers on cards. Very accomplished for a young person, he will make a good addition to our group.


Terry Meridan performed an appearing wand. The prop was not behaving well, so there was some input on how to remedy the problem, so it will work better. Helping each other is part of what we do here.


Michael Baker performed his spin on René Lavand’s Three Card Monte to Scott Joplin’s “The Entertainer”.


There was a lot of discussion of techniques with music, different sound systems, how to choose music, how to choose magic to go with a piece of music, how to edit, etc. Overall, the meeting was good and seemed to be enjoyed by all!
