Island Mystics, of The Society of American Magicians
following has been taken from our monthly newsletter of June, 2005.
those members who missed this month's meeting (May, 2005), missed Brian
Geer, the magician's magician. We at Assembly #77, The Long Island
Mystics, of The Society of American Magicians, were very fortunate to
have experienced a Brian Geer Lecture, once again. Brian lectured here
a few years ago and was so well received, we had him on a return visit.
He is the
author of five books and has a newly released DVD, entitled "Heavy
Hitters". Brian is also the creator of the "Meteor Paddle" and "The
Wildcard Deck". Mr. Geer began the lecture as a mini-show and then
proceeded to explain his effects (not "tricks", as he said, his wife Jen
reminds him). She was there as the beautiful assistant, behind the
product table (ahh, the art of misdirection). His explanations of this
own creations & twists on existing effects, were thorough & easy to
follow. The members so enjoyed Brian's relaxed demeanor, entertaining
personality & magical skills. A few were heard to agree that he
"wanted" us to understand; always asking for questions, & repeating
moves when necessary.
though he had his DVD for sale, a few feet away, he offered the
explanations at the drop of a top hat. His egg-bag routine was a joy to
behold. And his ending with a real glass of water, from the bag was awe
inspiring. Brian then gave away the move (see lecture or buy DVD at
briangeer.com or call 585.520.5505).
Brian. Hope to see you appear once again, in the near future.
friend in magic,
