“OMG…you must see.”
(Billy Ross, Edinburgh Bar Owner))
“…astounding and entertaining….”
(Lisa Wallace, Old Chain Pier)
“Spellbinding – entertaining and engaging”
(Majk Stokes, Comedy Musician)
I believe that magic is under utilized in pubs / bars. You will find live music in a bar and some pubs have live comedy, but you rarely find close-up magic being performed in pubs and bars. Most music festivals have fringe events going on, to entertain people when they are having a break from the music. I have found that having a roaming magician, works really well. I am now in my 5th year of being ‘Festival Magician’ at Heb Celt (Hebridean Celtic Music Festival) –
I have performed in pubs and bars around Scotland including The Ceilidh Place, Ullapool, The Royal Hotel, Stornoway and Dundee University Student Union Bar, Dundee. I have also performed in many Edinburgh bars, including The Old Chain Pier, The While Horse, The Melville Bar, The Earl of Marchmont, The Amber Rose and The Four in Hand.
Magic brings a spark to the evening and a new conversation for the rest of the night. I can walk away from a table and immediately here everyone giving their theory on how my magic was done. This often leads onto other magicians people have seen and they are still talking about magic when they leave at the end of the night.
If you are a Bar Manager and looking for a new form of entertainment for your punters, I would highly recommend considering booking myself. Many Edinburgh Bars I have performed on a regular night throughout the year. Please do get in touch and we can discuss some more. Contact Me.
Similarly, if you have booked a room in a pub or bar for a party or function, my magic would work a treat. A lot of my magic gigs are private functions in pubs and bars.
