“Jarrow would roll over in his grave if he saw what Rocco does with his sleeves. Rocco is certainly original in his work, a genius. How he keeps track of the intricate things mystifies me, it’s astounding!” -Dai Vernon
What did he teach?
Of course he treated us to an amazing demonstration of his famous technique and he went into every detail, including proper pocket management, and he broke down all the moves.
He talked about Misdirection, Finger-Fitness, Sleeving without a jacket, and the ability to perform impromptu magic with just about anything.
He also showed a few things he learned from Slydini, like the Torn and Restored Cigarette and the Jumbo Linking Pins with his own new handling.
If you're into coin magic, Rocco showed how to perform Quiet Coin Work like his Coins Across and his Ultimate Hook Coin Routine. Plus, he treated us to his Ultimate Karate Coin featuring his brand-New, clean handling, and his countdown coins, which is a routine that Dai Vernon loved.
That's just the beginning... he also taught a few great tricks with Roses, shared ideas for the D'Lite gimmick, the Flip Tip, PK Ring and more...
Who is he?
This Paterson, NJ native says his magic career really began when he won the Golden Lion Award for stage and close-up magic from Siegfried & Roy at the Las Vegas Desert Seminar in 1986. Rocco is a two-time winner of the coveted Manhattan Association of Cabarets Award, and has been nominated nine times as “Magician of the Year” by the Academy of Magical Arts (the governing body of the Magic Castle) in four different categories.

By far, one of the best lectures to date. Although, I am not into sleeving, I appreciated seeing a true master at his craft. The whole show was enjoyable from beginning to end. Rocco's explanations of each of his effects was excellently done and I loved his other ideas on coins and cards too.
Thanks for sharing Rocco, it was a pleasure to see you at work. Sending a shout out to Dan for hosting a great show and providing an informative interview!

Rocco is a trip. I mean an absolute ah-mazing, fast paced...trip. He was all over the place in the best way. I can imagine some people might feel like it was nuts because he went off page...but he is truly inspiring.
I watched it again late in the night last night/early morning hours because I could not sleep after seeing this lecture. I felt inspired. I felt like I had just watched one of the most remarkable people on earth doing what he loves and sharing it like crazy and going off the cuff. Sure it was not super organized but he played and he riffed and he was a joy to witness.
It was a real reminder that we need to keep doing the same thing...play...find ourselves and what we like within that play. Think. Play. PRACTICE. PRACTICE. PRACTICE...
Today I was walking around looking at objects differently...wondering what I might be able to do with them or how I might try and be more creative with my magic choices. This lecture really got me thinking!!!!
He is so full of love for magic and for what he has learned, practiced and become. I am so grateful to have been able to watch this and I will revisit this lecture again and again...much the way I found joy in watching the Gaetan Bloom, Kevin James, Bizzaro & Scott Alexander lectures...
You should watch this and take note of how astounding it is to watch someone just go, go...GOOoooooo...
I hope that someone reads this and gives this lecture a go...he is awesome and i feel so deeply inspired by his intensity and his passion for magic...
I have never seen him live...only in youtube videos but this man is fantastic and I wish I could have been in that room live and watching him blast off. (plus, he gave away magic tricks)!!!
So if you are into sleeving...or other great sleight moves...this man is the one to watch. And if you need a kick in the pants to get more creative and to just go all out or just a little out...give this lecture a go...
Totally worth it!!! Do it!

"Where are we going?" - Paul says to John. "To the Tippy Top" says John...that was The Beatles, that is where Rocco is. There are few lectures, OK none to date except maybe Jay Scott Berry (IMHO), that I can say that this person walks and breathes magic in every moment of his life. Rocco was amazing and beyond... I loved him and if you get any lecture, get this one. I can't say enough..so I won't, get it.
Sleeves have it! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 7th, 2014
Rocco is a master of creating wonder with his sleeves. We know that's what he uses but it's impossible to see what or what comes from nowhere or changes in his hands. As he presents so much enjoyable magic. Not only are his routines great but when the mood strikes he suddenly picks up something and develops a whole new thing on the spot.
This lecture gives you a whole spectrum of ideas and techniques to use as Rocco breaks it all down and teaches, in this lecture, more than you will ever learn in years of practice and study!

I've known Rocco since 1986__I told him then he would be a big star in Magic...I've seen him lecture before too__But this was one of the most informative lecture I have ever seen him do... If you don't buy this download your missing out on some great ideas that you can apply to your shows..
Rocco is the Greatest! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 9th, 2014
Rocco Silano is the greatest at sleeving of all time! He is one of the most nicest persons ever and such a great teacher!
This is definitely one of the best lectures ever and I can highly recommend anyone to try sleeving! Only a few months back, I thought sleeving wasn't something good but after having seen Rocco, I just know how great it is! It's basically the best tool for impromptu magic aswell.
Rocco teaches so many things and so great stuff once you've watched this lecture, you'll have so many ideas that you don't know where to start, he shows a huge variety of fun stuff! Please buy this for your own sake!
Rocco's lecture Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 4th, 2014
The lecture was superb. I learned a great deal and was greatly entertained on the way. Rocco has made a tremendous contribution to magic technology. While he has done great magic with his methods, I do believe that with his methods, there is more wonderful magic to discover. The next day I bought his DVD lectures on sleeving and was very well pleased. I have known him for over twenty years, from before the magic community recognized this great talent, and his ability to develop magic and explain it has also developed remarkably. He knows how to teach and he cares to be a really good teacher. I do believe that the next twenty years will see some of Rocco's most profound contributions to magic and the magic community.
Magic becomes real when ... Report this review

Remember the feeling you had the first time you saw a beautiful sunset? a precious stone? your own shadow? Magic can be just tricks but not when done by someone who believes in it, dreams it, breaths it, gifts it ... Rocco is real magic! and he always shares it as an open book, and if you experience his lecture, be aware, you'll be infected with his unlimited passion for the art.
