Here is what some past attendees have had to say about Jimmy's lecture.

"Jimmy Fingers just performed his VERY FIRST LECTURE for the Dallas
Magic Club on Sunday and it had to be one of the best lectures I have
EVER attended....The lecture was very well structured and featured powerful material
for both magicians and mentalists alike. Jimmy is awesome and stayed
around several hours after to talk to many who had further questions
even tho' he had a 4+ hour drive back to Houston. Jimmy Fingers is definitely the BEST KEPT SECRET in magic today."
Christopher Lyle

"We had Jimmy Fingers come and rock the house all weekend long. His
show material, as well as the lecture, was fantastic. I am glad to
call Jimmy my friend, and I couldn't ask for anything more."
Alex Hinojosa Cantu of Monterrey, Mexico

"I wanted to publicy say thanks to Jimmy Fingers for coming here and
screwing with our minds all weekend long...He
is such a great magician, he is extremely funny and is just full of
ideas. It has got to be crazy living in his head (with all the voices
he hears).. his lecture made me rethink a lot of stuff. it wasn't just
the effects but the way he presents the art of magic.. You really
gotta see him,.. He is an extraordinary human being... and that
Magellan Levitation.. WOW.. just pure genius... the moment that he
starts raising up.. well.. is such a magical moment.. is so beautiful.
he rocked the house."

One month away. Please mark your calendars. Jimmy has never lectured in the San Francisco Bay area before so we are in for a treat.
