WOW, these past 6 weeks home in Las Vegas have flown by and it has been the busiest “vacation” we’ve had that I can remember! We enjoyed being home for the holidays and celebrated Christmas and New Year’s with family and friends, and since the props were home for the first time all year, any free time was spent doing repairs and maintenance. “Living in the Entertainment Capital of the World” has it’s perks and of course we caught some friends’ shows while in town, including “Pin Up” featuring Playmate of the Year Claire Sinclair, hypnotist Kevin Lepine and the very talented Sky Dee Miles at Tropicana Nights.

January 2014 WONDERGROUND
On January 16th we performed at Jeff McBride’s WONDERGROUND in Las Vegas, a magical nightclub experience with lots of variety performers throughout the evening. It’s always fun to perform at Wonderground because you know you’ll see lots of friends and you never know who will show up. On this particular night there were many fellow magicians in the audience including Criss Angel, Nathan Burton and MAGIC Magazine editor, Stan Allen. That night we were also interviewed by the Las Vegas Review Journal, which will be featuring an article on Wonderground and the different performers in early February.

The World Famous Magic Castle
January 20-26th we had the opportunity to headline at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA. This beautiful venue is considered the Carnegie Hall for magicians, and it’s always and honor to perform there! We shared the stage with hilarious juggler Micheal Goudeau and it was truly an amazing week.

We saw so many entertainer friends during our week at the Magic Castle and had such a great time catching up with people we hadn’t seen in years, even some of my fellow Miss America pageant girls came to the show! We also had the pleasure of having HGTV’s “Property Brothers” Drew and Jonathan Scott and actress Nikki Reed from the “Twilight Saga” as guests in our audience on one evening, and on Saturday night actor David Arquette from the movie “Scream” was in the audience. He ended up being one of the audience volunteers during our show and gave us an enthusiastic standing ovation at the end of the show. Fellow magician and friend Christopher Hart, who played “Thing” in The Addams Family movies, also paid us a visit and take this awesome photo with us!
We just finished packing up the illusions, and our equipment is now on it’s way to Celebrity Cruises Celebrity Silhouette, our venue for the next couple of months. Now we’ve got a couple weeks off to relax before we head off to the Caribbean. 2014 is definitely off to a great start! – Mistie
