Welcome to a brand new style of Rubber Band Magic.

On this DVD you will find a collection of revolutionary new plots and techniques. Throughout this DVD you will learn some awesome visual magic. Within a very short space of time and with minimum practice, you will be Banding Around.

Join Russell Leeds as he teaches you the tricks and techniques behind several of the effects which have made him an underground sensation and one of the busiest performers in the UK.

Top coin worker Craig Petty and Russell sit down and discuss 14 routines in depth ranging from penetrations and transpositions to color changes and even bands vanishing in a spectators hand.

Rubber Ring - Ring on band on steroids. A 7 phase penetration routine that builds to a stunning climax

Impromptu Penetration - An impromptu miracle. The ultimate penetration routine with an elastic band penetrating a borrowed pen strand by strand

Rubber Coins - The routine everyone is talking about. Bands change visibly to coins in an eye popping flurry of magical moments.

Trans-purse-ition - The ultimate transposition. Bands and coins change places in a routine that will literally fry your spectators brain.

Empowerment - Your audience becomes magicians as they make bands vanish from inside their own hands. The best part - they won't even know how they did it.

Bands Through Table - This one is hardcore! 3 bands melt through a solid table with a kicker you have to see to believe.

Rubber Fly - Probably the most popular coin routine in the world can now be done with bands. Even better no gimmicks, no extras just 3 bands.

Pick Pocket - Two different colored bands change places in the spectators hand. This routine features a stunning color change with hundreds of applications.

Growing Band - Russell's opener at tables. Comedy incredible visuals and a great routine combine to create a killer effect.

Linking Bands - Imagine performing the classic linking bands but then handing them out in their linked state. Super Commercial

Bands in Purse - The routine that started it all. Three bands travel to an empty purse the spectator is holding.

Invisiband - An underground classic finally released. An elastic band becomes invisible right under the spectators nose.

Bonus Routines

Rubber:- Rubber - This one is a reputation maker. Elastic bands turn into rubber balls in the perfect lead in to any three ball routine.

Band Through Glass - The perfect bar trick. An elastic band penetrates up through the bottom of a solid glass.

"I think this DVD has moved rubber band magic forward a considerable step (think "leap"). You will definitely find something on this DVD you will add to your repertoire immediately."
- Doug Brewer

"I just wanted to check in here and let everyone know I think this DVD is Awesome. It has a lot of good material in it. If you like rubber band magic you should check this out!"

Rubber band magic is a beautiful thing when done properly. I've got a few rubber band effects in my repertoire, and they always get great responses because I can literally pick up two rubber bands and do some great magic that is simple and visual. It always plays well.

I just wish that I had more moves and tricks with Rubber Bands in my repertoire. I wish someone would put out a really good DVD about rubberband magic. If that ever happened, I would call it "Banding Around." This DVD is all that and a bag of Pork Rinds (Yes . . . I said "Pork Rinds").

Banding Around is loaded with great rubber band moves and effects. Some of the effects are basically coin plots that Mr. Leads has converted (quite well I might add) to rubber band effects. There are a few effects that are essentially rubble, but I'd say over 90% of the material is gem quality, and at least 50% of it is GEM quality. There were some parts that were filmed outside, and that was just annoying.The lighting and sound wasn't as good as the rest.

Also, Craig Petty made an appearance in a good portion of the DVD. Pretty much all he did was plug his own products. Hey I can't blame a guy for trying to move product, but it felt like he was stealing the spotlight from Leads. I will say, also, that much of the performance section was a bit dry and presentation-less.

The magic and effects were outstanding, but I would have liked to have seen a little more presentation and a lot less put-and-taking (I'll take this rubber band here and I'll put this there; now watch as I put this right here, etc . . . ). Taking the good with the bad, this DVD is worth owning in much the same way that Revolutionary Coin 2.0 is worth owning. It makes for a great reference source. GEM.

Wow; I didn't know what to expect when opening up and watching this DVD... Another newcomer with "original" rubber band magic? I have SO much rubber band material in my "library" and so I didn't think I would be surprised...

...I was. Really. This is some great, original stuff! Russell really does understand the concept and all the subtlety that you need to create good, fooling rubber band magic.

Most of this stuff is powerful and practical, but the REAL value of this set comes in where he explains how to routine these things to make a flowing, good routine. This is something he really understands and is worth the price of the DVD.

The ONE reason it lost a star is because of the camerawork. The performances are all filmed well in HD. Fantastic... Then, you get to the explanations, and they are filmed with a cheap, low quality, bad frame-rate camera on a park bench... Meh, you can still understand it all and will have no problems learning, I just have to wonder why...

Overall though, HIGHLY recommended if you like powerful, practical rubber band magic.
