Yes Mike!!!! We have finally announced just the first three of many names to come for Magic At the Beach 2012.

I want to point out that 2012 is a bigger and better convention. You still get the same awesome Gala show, awesome close-up show, two contests, opening banquet, and of course THE BEACH!

For 2012 we have added a bonus 7th lecture, our Banquet show will be featuring a LAS VEGAS HEADLINER, and an extra 1-man show has been added as well. That makes 4 fully staged shows all together!!! And we are a small fraction of the price of the Big conventions that offer all of these things.

The people asked and we delivered: JEFF McBride was one of the names all of our attendees requested to see. Not only will you see Jeff perform in every arena of magic and lecture but he will be giving a dose of his Magic and Mystery School. Eugene Burger calls Jeff, "one of the most influential teachers of magic of our time." We hope you take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity training one-on-one with this master teacher of magic. Each five hour session with Jeff is never like the other, and I think anyone who has taken it can attest to that. Spots are limited so sign up soon for your guaranteed slot with Jeff McBride and the Super Session. See the website for details.

In planning your convention travels for next year I hope you put Magic at the Beach on your list... It is said to be one the new favorite conventions everyone is attending.

We have more surprises in store, keep your eyes open as we reveal what's hidden at the beach.

Best Wishes,

Matt McCoy

Seems like there is a new "convention favorite"(used loosely) and he will be making his South Eastern debut at Magic At the Beach. Keep your eyes peeled next week for the announcement.

Best,

-Matt

p.s. I also needed to make a correction to a post I made earlier by saying we are having four shows. It isn't four.... IT'S FIVE! THERE'S: The Opening "Las Vegas" Show, All Star Close-up Show, All Star Cabaret Show, Special 1-MAN Show, and The Champions of Magic Show. Can't get any better than that for $135.00!!!!

Greetings to all of our Friends in Magic,

It's time again to start preparing for South Carolina's premiere magic convention - Magic At The Beach, the Southeast's newest and freshest magic convention. Last year was a great success and this upcoming year will be even better. Mark your calendars for January 12 - 14, 2012 and head on down to Myrtle Beach at the Ocean Dunes Resort and Conference Center.

Magic At The Beach Convention rate is $135/USD if registered before December 1, 2011. Rate after December 1st including any walk-up registrants will be $150/USD. Registration will be limited. All rooms at the Ocean Dunes are ocean front and rates are $59/night USD. You will need to make your room reservations directly with the Ocean Dunes Resort. All information is on our website. Convention package includes premium swag bag, Welcome Party, workshops, lectures, and shows.

Here are just a few of the talented performers already booked.

Our Headliner, Jeff McBride, is a three time award winner at the International Grand Prix of Magic in Monte Carlo, and is widely recognized as a foremost innovator and most exciting performer in contemporary magic. Naming him "Vegas' Best" Magician several years ago, the Las Vegas Review Journal wrote: "Light years ahead of the pack. McBride is easily the most exciting and mesmerizing magician I've seen in years."

Mike Caveney is a member of the most prestigious group of magicians in the world, The Inner Magic Circle of London, England. He was recently voted Stage Magician Of The Year by the famous Magic Castle in Hollywood. His talents have taken him from Japan to Russia, fro m Monte Carlo to Borneo, Australia, China, throughout Europe and most of the 50 States. On television, Mike was named one of the New Vaudevillians and the Hollywood Reporter described him as, "...one of the funniest magicians in America."

Tina Lenert, an accomplished entertainer, has enchanted audiences worldwide and is known for combining elements of pantomime and magic. Her magic skills were developed by being a regular performer and life member of Hollywood’s Magic Castle, where she was voted Stage Magician of the Year by the Academy of Magical Arts & Sciences.

Save the dates and we will see you in the upcoming year in beautiful Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Special Announcement - Jeff McBride has agreed to lead his Super Session one-day workshop. This will be held on Sunday, January 15, 2012 and will be for an additional fee. See our website for details !!

January 12-14, 2012

OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:

Recent convention favorite makes his first stop in the South East. And where better than Magic At the Beach? For 2012 we will have New York Magician ASI WIND joining us.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ASI WIND-Spontaneous and unpredictable, Asi's performances are a roller-coaster for the mind. Combining a free-spirited playfulness with superb skill and a uniquely creative mind, NYC based Corporate Mentalist (mind reader) Asi Wind treats each audience to a truly memorable experience.

He is globally hailed by magicians as being one of the few performers in the world to constantly innovate, develop, and perform entirely original material. Indeed, when a magician wants to be fooled, he attends Asi's show. No surprise, then, that a committee of his peers recently presented him with the International Merlin Award for "Most Innovate Show" - an award previously given to David Copperfield, Criss Angel, and Penn & Teller.

In addition to being the headliner at New York's longest-running magic show, and the performer of choice at the city's most upscale private events, Asi is frequently asked to invent and design ideas for other magicians worldwide. He is currently one of the main advisors for David Blaine's upcoming television special - a project that, for now, remains secret.

Asi Wind was born and raised in Tel Aviv, where he was voted "Best Magician in Israel." He currently resides in New York City, and spends most of his year performing across the globe.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

JEFF McBride, MIKE CAVENEY, TINA LENERT, and ASI WIND. More names to come. The biggest surprises won't even come until after December 1st so make sure to register early. Last year we had around 225 magicians come. To keep it the same, intimate atmosphere we are capping it off at 250 magicians. Once we hit our limit no more registrations will be sold. TEN international stars of magic, FIVE shows, SEVEN lectures, and one heck of a good time. Register Today!!!!

Another Name Announced:

Direct from Paris, France.

Magic At the Beach tries to have a few surprises and unknown
magic sensations. For 2012 we have found a European jewel that
is coming for the first time to the U.S.A!!!!! I promise you
have never seen him at another magic convention in America.
Magic At the Beach is bringing one of France's most sought
out cabaret performers. He has worked some of the most
prestigious theatres in Europe and for the first time he is
bringing his combination of magic, mime, music, comedy, and circus
acrobatics to America. Do not miss the highly entertaining
magic of XAVIER MORTIMER! Xavier is just as excited as we are
to be coming to the States.
------------------------------------------------------------

XAVIER MORTIMER
Corn-fed on a farm in Southwestern France, Xavier packs up his
suitcase to travel the world while creating shows that blend magic,
circus acts, music and comedy.

Xavier Mortimer studied at the Music and Dance Conservatory of La
Rochelle, as well as the Desmond Jones Acting School in London and
the Jacques Lecoq Acting School in Paris.

At the age of 15, he creates his first show, a combination of magic,
mime and comedy. Thereafter, he wins several prizes for Magic (1st
place at the Albano International Congress in Italy, Gold Star at
the L’Eau d’Olle magic festival in France).

A truly complete performer, he is the recipient of several more
international prizes for Magic rewarding his shows. He achieves
public recognition with his show « L’Ombre orchestre » (The One-
Man Shadow Orchestra) created in Avignon in 2006 and subsequently
performed in Paris and worldwide more than 600 times.

Xavier Mortimer is both the creator of and performer in visual
shows that he presents internationally. What’s more, he not
only composes the music for his own shows, but for other shows as well.

http://www.xaviermortimer.com
----------------------------------------------------------------------

How's that for a 4th of July present? Keep looking out as we slowly add
more and more names. Don't forget to register before December 1st. Cut-
off is 250 people. This year most of our surprises are staying hidden
before that date so register EARLY. If you have been to Magic At the
Beach then you know you have nothing to worry about, if you haven't just
ask anybody who has.

JEFF McBride, MIKE CAVENEY, TINA LENERT, ASI WIND, and XAVIER MORTIMER!
See you at the beach in 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Xavier Mortimer is great !
Other great European names that have not been to the states often are:
Jerome Helfenstein - his new Black art act is one of the best ever!
Alana - watch out for her, she will be a FISM favorite.
Laurent Beratta: great card manipulations & great presentation of Blaney's ladder suspension
Rafael: he killed with his new lecture at the Magic Circle in London and he is a very funny and a very creative magician/illusionist.

Other favorites are Jerome Murat and Timo Mark but they have appeared on many conventions before.
