After our two Ultimate Magic shows at The Arena, we headed to St Regis to perform for a MSIG Insurance’s 50th Anniversary gala event for about 600 people. There was a sense of deja vu as we performed there several weeks ago for Canon.
The Concept:Magic Team actually loaded in one full set of illusion equipment to the hotel the night before. The team did a fantastic job making sure all was in order. The event management company managing the event was one of the most professional we ever worked with. Surprisingly, it is the first time working with them but they truly did an awesome job in ensuring that all our technical requirements were met. This resulted in us being able to stage the best show we could!
And the show went tremendously well with a strong ovation from the audience after every act we performed. We debuted the brand new “Cyrstal Striptease” illusion which got tremendous response… that was gratifying. We pulled out old favourites like the Vertical Sawing, Light & Space and 3 Inch Hole which all played well.
The entire 30min show felt like 15min and our entire team were wondering if we ran short but we didn’t.. . So, that is a great thing… when a show does not feel its length. I should have told that to the guy who fell asleep… kidding No one fell asleep!
While I write this, the Concept:Magic team is actually now loading some of our props directly from St Regis to Orchard Hotel for our show tomorrow, or rather, later today. They are doing a tireless job making sure our shows are looking good and of value to our clients. The Impalement Cage is also loading in as I write.
We had a series of good rehearsals earlier today but Ning still has some trouble making the time. I hope all goes well tomorrow. Check back soon!
