Pleased to announce that I will be part of the live entertainment at The Moonlight Masquerade in Franklin, TN October 7th. Strolling magic with a Halloween flair. This event benefits a non-profit for women and children, and from looks of it, they are pulling out all of the stops this year! Live music, cigars, food, wine tastings, beer tastings, bourbon and whiskey, signature cocktails. Wine auction and silent auction. See link below for details and tickets.

Live magic is best but there is a ton of great magic on TV now. Here's a list of my favorites and the networks they air on. Check your local listings and on demand service.

The Carbonaro Effect - TruTV
Masters of Illusion - CW
Steve Trash Science - PBS

What is close-up magic? Simply put, theatrical impossibilities experienced by small audiences just feet away from the performer. Adaptable to almost any venue and setting, the magic might be enjoyed while sitting at a table, as in a restaurant, or by people standing in small groups, like at a cocktail party or wedding reception. Though always suitable for children, my magic is geared towards adults. Themes often involve quirky inventions and demonstrations of (mostly true) scientific principles. A kitchen sponge absorbs solid coins and a Sharpie marker writes in any color called for. Or an audience member becomes a mind reader while participating in a Cold War history lesson. Whatever the mini-miracle witnessed, rest assured it will be delivered with tongue-in-cheek plausibility.

Here's what Tracy W. of Freudenberg-NOK had to say:
"Matt did a great job making sure he met everyone in the group and showed them some amazing sleight of hand magic. I highly recommend him for a party or corporate event. Everyone loved it!"
