Someone asked me via email about what routines I do. I figure I'd share it with everyone.

What I perform usually changes with every gig. It depends on the type of show that I'm doing. Here is what I did at the last show. It was a parlor setup with about 30 people watching. There were kids all the way to adults. This is what I did.

:arrow: Floating Rose
:arrow: Magic Coloring Book
:arrow: Quit While you are ahead (Svengali Deck Routine)
:arrow: Card to Ceiling with a signed card from the Svengali deck (Not the force card. This keeps me from needing a deck swith too early)
:arrow: Disappearing Hankey
:arrow: Hold It Buster
:arrow: Cups and Balls
:arrow: Card to Pocket
:arrow: Paperclipped
:arrow: Presto Printo

Then a 10-15 minute break.

:arrow: Healed and sealed
:arrow: The Cursed Gypsy (Basically the Color Monte with 3 tarot cards from a Paul Wislon Video)
:arrow: Professors nightmare (rope)
:arrow: Vanishing and appearing knots (rope)
:arrow: Color Deception Brass
:arrow: Insurance Policy (easy card trick that is a blast)
:arrow: Vanishing Bandana (I usually close with this)
:arrow: Circle Square (I closed with this to had out candy to the kids.)

The whole show was about 50 minutes to an hour...too long for the kids. But they were well behaved. If they weren't I would have skipped the break and ditched everything after it except Healed and Sealed, Vanishing Bandana and Circle/Square.

I usually don't start with the floating rose, but thought I'd give it a whirl especially as I was paid a little extra to do a "floating type trick"

Sounds pretty good. My last show went like this:

-hummer card
-invisible deck routine (never again, very strong trick and highly recommended but not with the size crowd I had)
-head trip
-torn Tyron the toliet paper to 30' of colorful mouth coil :lol:
-baloon bag (Jeff Hobson)
-vanishing hank and absorbing news to music
-ashes trick were there card is revealed with ashes rubbed onto my arm

HEBREWS 13:1-2!!! :lol:

since I've added:

-torch thru arm (the torch floats)

and I also have:

-linking rings
-rope thru body
-zombie ball

HEBREWS 13:1-2

Although the shows I have done were for Churches, here is my routine as I received some new effects.

1. Fasio Cane to Silk (Butterfly silk)
2. 20th Century Silks using the Butterfly Silk
3. Sucker Die Box
4. Blendo Routine or Silk Blow Tube
5. A penetration effect with Die in a wood tube. Penetrating thru steel blades.
6. Strat-O-Sphere
7. Cut and Restored Rope using the Panama Rope Trick
8. Rope Routine from Tabary
9. Dove Pan production (cake, candy depending on audience)

I substitute depending on audience. For adults depending on audience size I may do some card effects, for kids Spikes thru Balloon, Magic Milk Pitcher, Magic Coloring Book)
