One of the really nice things about the magic café is that we get opportunities to meet other magicians like Vinny Marini The Godfather.

I feel meeting people like this is a privilege.

In these past few weeks Vinny has shared a lot of moves and ideas with us café members. Moves like his Javlin card - the Godfather top change - the Godfather palm.

In fact I have never seen a top change that could fool a video camera before Vinny’s Godfather top change. This card work is some of the best card work I have seen in years and in my opinion equal to Marlo and Vernon.

His coin work is as great as his card work and his card work is great!

Thanks again Vinny for sharing your fantastic work on coins and cards and I am looking forward to your next DVD!

I second that! You couldn't have said it any better, Bish!

Vinny, you haven't sent me the demo to your javelin card yet.

I second all that has been said!
Vinny is a great guy, and was even nice enough to take time and personally help me (via video).
The Café will only benefit from having members like him!

Vinny is like a breath of fresh air! I really would consider it an honor to spend an afternoon (or more) with him, just to watch and learn. I really like his technique and consider his "Top Gun" as one of the best techniques that I've had the fortunate opportunity to learn. It has become my favorite sleight because of it's versatility and deception. His top change is a beauty to behold, as well as his squeeze palm shift. Thankyou so much Vinny...The Magic Café is definitely blessed to have such an unselfish and knowledgeable member as yourself! Can't wait for your upcoming DVD!! And Glenn, your website is excellent!! I really enjoy it and respect your contribution to this forum and enjoy reading any thread that you express your knowledge and advice in! Smile

Vinny was the very first to welcome me to the Café.
The very first to offer help (and more).
The GF of magic is one of the most honest, caring, giving and stand-up guys I've ever come across.

That said, I'm very much looking forward to those things magical coming from you, Vinny. All the best.

What's truly amazing is that even though he is releasing those effects on his new dvd, he's still sent out hundreds of videos detailing the work and his handling. Name one other magician that does something like that.

Vinny is a class act and skilled cardician. I'm blown away by his generousity and desire to help people improve magic and their skills across the board.

Nice top change indeed!

Vinny is a great guy, a very talented magician and is always willing to help a young magician such as myself. He is so creative and has the most original moves. He is kind enough to share all of them as well, which is VERY nice of him. Thnaks for helping everyone at the Café out Vinny!

The Godfather. We need only look to the friendship he gave Slim as an example to see why he holds the honour of this title.

Saluto Don Marini.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Vinny was the first person that I bought magic from online. His kindness, consideration and expertise convinced me to make other online purchases.

I look forward to the new dvd!

Vinny should be well respected. I love his coin work and his willingness to share...where can I find the other CARD work he has shared?

Vinny is always there to lend a helping hand.

And if you check out his early web cam vids of his performances, you'll always see him grooving or boogying to the background music!

He took time to help me out with a card trick, utilizing his Top Gun Control, via webcam, which made things a lot clearer for me.

He even sent me his Warped and Restored, from half way around the world, for no charge at all, but for the sole purpose of sharing.

Thanks again Vinny!

I have yet to see your famous Top Change, if it isn't too much trouble, please PM me and fill me in old friend.

Take care and all the best Godfather.

Being a Godfather is not a priviledge..., its a responsibility. A resposibility that only Vinny can deliver. Thanks for the friendship, the trust, and the little lessons in life. I will be here if you need me!

Why does he call himself the Godfather? Just being curious...

Watching Vinny Marini is like watching the old cardicians from the far west. He had the smell of the good old times, the quality of the best gamblers, the ideas of the top magicians and the friendship of the best friends.

All my words to him could be only about gratitude.

I could not wait to watch his new dvd The Famiglia. As his two first releases, sure this one will contain great pure magic, new sleights, powerful skills and fine routines.

Just because he has been, is and will be sure, the Godfather of a lot of magicians around the world.

Mr. Vinny "The Godfather" Marini... is a must have friend and magician.

All the best magic,

I can't do anything but agree.

Right since I first came on The Magic Café, I have been astounded by The Godfather! He has given me very very much help, and every time I have been uncertain about a certain aspect of magic, he has came to my rescue. I have never met such a welcoming figure!

Vinny Marini is a true friend, and I hope we allways will stay so Smile

With all respect,

Magic is everywhere
