“Rocco, you are a real artist” -Michael Jackson
"Simply put, there is NO ONE like Rocco. His magic is truly unique and hits spectators in a way that they don't see coming. His performance has a power to it that makes the experience completely magical. I have watched him perform hundreds of times and seen audiences laugh, gasp, cry and cheer. At the end of his performances people are always on their feet applauding, because they have witnessed real magic. That's the Rocco effect." -Todd Robbins
"The epitome of real magic" -Harry Blackstone Jr.
"When Rocco performs , audience claim pure magic and janitors call a hell of a mess. You got to love Rocco." -Stephen Bargatze
"Rocco is one of the best sleever in the world. His attention to detail combined with his creativity, is out of this world. That is why he has closed the first half of the final 4F Gala Show, for the past 10 years.” -Obie O’Brien
"Rocco shows us all, that we don’t need cards and balls to do a great manipulation act! Thank you, Rocco!" -Timo Marc
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...
