artists bio below:
Warren is a Chicago-based musician who plays guitar in the
tradition of Mother Maybell Carter and sings in the tradition of Doc
Watson. He weaves these influences into a clear and simple style all his
own. Playing early country and bluegrass gems, Warrren is a favorite
performer at private Chicago events. Don't miss this rare public
Joe Diamond is an 18-year-old student of magic who uses a
unique combination of psychology, sleight of hand, and showmanship in
his performances. He develops and performs his effects by refusing to
believe that something is Impossible. At 16, he was the youngest
member of two successful Chicago stage shows, "Nothin' Up My Sleeve"
and "Marshall Brodien & Friends." At 17, he was the youngest first place
winner at the Close Up Classic in Colon, Michigan, and the youngest
guest artist of SankeyMagic's "Underground Jam" DVD project which
was filmed in Toronto, Ontario.
Frances Mai-Ling is penning the genre of alternative-classical
piano, whose most recent release ‘chronology’ is receiving glowing
reviews. She will be joined on stage with Violinist Chris Marshall on
select songs. She was recently awarded the 2006 American Heart &
Stroke Heroes Award by the American Heart Association for her work as
an community advocate. Her hard work in raising awareness is literally
close to her heart – her father suffered a stroke in 1998. Mai-Ling’s CDs
are outfitted with information and a portion of all CDs sold is
donated to the AHA. This money helps with education programs and
research. Mai-Ling has been performing music most of her adult life but
also comes from a show business family of magic. Her father is the only
magician to work with Dante & Blackstone, Sr as an assistant, before
developing his own show. He is most noted for being the first magician
and one of the very variety acts to perform on Chicago’s Bozo's Circus
in 1964. For several years he worked as a lone magician, before
meeting his future assistant and wife. Then Mai-Ling was born. When
she reached a mischievous age, her parents put her into the show to
keep her out of trouble. Today she is troublesome with 88-keys.
Chris Marshall is an improvisation violinist from a magical family.
His grandfather, Jay Marshall was the Dean of Magicians before his
passing in 2005 as well as the co-owner of Magic, Inc. a historic magic
shop on the north side where many magicians famous and not-so-famous
have spent countless hours talking too much to each other. Chris' family
and Frances' family have been friends for generations and now they're
performing together for the first time!
