We have had an amazing summer so far, performing our illusion show on the Disney Magic and our fly-on show on Royal Caribbean International! The travel schedule has definitely been hectic, and has us on a plane every 5 or 6 days and we’ve even lost our bags a couple of times, but the shows are going great and destinations are incredible. So far this summer via the cruises we’ve visited Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Russia, Denmark, England, Iceland, Scotland. In addition to those ports, we also took a week-long break in Amsterdam in between our shows. During our travels we also had the chance to catch up with several magician friends of ours: Sabine Van Diemen and Fritz Alkemade in Amsterdam (he produces the Amsterdam Magic Show – check it out if you’re in the area!), Caroline Ravn in Stockholm and on the Disney Magic we had the pleasure of working with comedy mentalist Chris Cox!
Below are some photos of just a few of our adventures in Northern Europe so far:

At the end of April we brought our show to Mesquite, Nevada to headline at Casablanca Resort & Casino! The full 80 minute show “Elegant Deception” featured some of our signature illusions but also some brand new magic, and it was a full house that rewarded us with a standing ovation. Thank you Casablanca for being such a great venue for us!

Back in Las Vegas, we attended several red carpet events including our friends Jarret & Raja‘s new “Magic vs. Music” show at Hooters Hotel & Casino. We’re old friends and even competed against each other on SyFy’s TV show “Wizard Wars,” and we were happy to support them on their press night!
At the Flamingo Hotel we had a chance to see Tape Face‘s show while he was appearing in Vegas, as well as attend the 15th anniversary show of X-Burlesque! That’s one of the great things about living in Las Vegas and being friends with so many people in the entertainment community here, always having the chance to support fellow entertainers in their shows.

We’re about to leave for a whirlwind summer tour of Europe – visiting 44 cities in 23 countries – but before we leave, we took the opportunity to share some magic with the kids at Sunrise Children’s Hospital. We’re so grateful that we had the chance to see them smile to brighten up their day a bit! Thank you Win-Win Entertainment for arranging this for us.

After performing at The Magic Castle in Hollywood, we continued our tour of Southern California and performed in San Diego at the annual SeaWorld Magic Weekends event! From March 25-26 we performed for over 8000 people in the Mission Bay Theater, and in between our shows we even had the chance to see some of the animal ambassadors at the park. The highlight for me was meeting Peanut, the friendliest beaver I’ve ever seen!
Following our shows in San Diego, we headed to Long Beach, California to perform in the FantaSea Magic Festival onboard the historic Queen Mary! Before headlining in the Mysteries of Magic Dinner show we filmed two different segments for KTLA news, to promote the event. To see video of our segment on KTLA click HERE!
As soon as our show onboard the Queen Mary was done, we packed up and headed to Santa Clarita, California to for one final appearance in this season of “It’s Magic!” – America’s longest all star magic revue.

To say that it’s been a busy month us would be an understatement, but that’s how we like up. Our next shows are in Las Vegas and then we’re gearing up for our summer in Europe, with an insane tour of 42 cites in 22 countries.
