Thanks tristanmagic for your suggestions. Xavier will be a BIG hit
with no one really knowing his work. I think our attendees will be
quite impressed and pleased. We are always looking to see who is hot,
underground, or winning the awards. Who will take to make the attendees
come out of the woodworks. I like seeing NEW acts and some CLASSIC acts.
Feel free to PM or email any suggestions anyone else might have. Maybe
there's a magic convention favorite that has never been down here or
you haven't seen in a while. Let us know.

For Immediate Release

Magic At The Beach is very proud to have announced two more talented artists in our
incredible line-up of performers and lecturers.

First Asi Wind, from New York. 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.

Asi will be at MATB in Myrtle Beach, SC, January 12 - 14, 2012 performing in our Close-up
Show and presenting his NEW lecture as well as performing his one-man show. These shows and
lecture are only available to convention registrants so visit http://www.magicatthebeach.org and
register online today.

Also making his first appearance in the United States, Xavier Mortimer from France. 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. At the age of 15, he created his first show,
a combination of magic, mime and comedy. Thereafter, he won 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
and more. He will be preforming on the cabaret show and Gala show as well. An international star you
won't want to miss!

MATB 2012 will be held at the beautiful Sands Resort & Conference Center. Oceanfront rooms only $59/nt. Still one of the lowest convention rates in the country. The Gala Show will be at The Gilmore Theater,
home of The Carolina Opry. Gala show tickets are included with your registration.

If you were there this past January, you know and if not then you've heard what a great event
this is. It's not too early to make your reservations now so contact us and the resort as soon
as possible. Make sure you tell them you are with MATB!

We'll see you at MATB 2012 !!

This is an awesome convention and ran like a well oiled machine. Katalina and I had a blast performing there last year. We were really impressed by not only how well everything was run but also by how nice everyone is. If you're within driving distance....do not miss it. Side note for performers: Matt McCoy is an impressive stage manager and has a whip...don't make him use it. It hurts!

Christian,

You are the only act I've ever had to use that with. And I don't think anyone who knows you will question why I did. Haha. Congrats on your award as well! And and a very happy Birthday to the beautiful Katalina. Smile

Today is my birthday and I though I would share a present with all you by announcing another
name for Magic At the Beach! I am happy to say that the beautiful and graceful JADE will
be joining our incredible list of CHAMPIONS of MAGIC.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
JADE:
The exotic allure of Jade's magic stems from her Chinese heritage and her childhood on
the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Jade took the male-dominated world of magic by storm in
1990, when she won first place in the International Brotherhood of Magicians' World Magic
Competition. More importantly, a panel of celebrity judges honored her with the organization's
coveted Gold Medal of Magic, a prize awarded only a handful of times in the competition's
20-year history. To date, she remains the sole woman to receive this honor.


The renown from her win propelled Jade into appearances on foreign and national television.
She has performed on the stages of variety theaters in Europe and Canada; luxury cruise lines
like American Hawaii and Holland America; and casino revue shows in Atlantic City, Lake Tahoe,
Biloxi, and Las Vegas.

Monte Carlo 1994, the Royal Family of Monaco invited Jade to perform at the Princess Grace
Theater, an honor she considers a highlight of her career. Paris 1999, France's Minister
of Defense personally presented her the Golden Mandrake Award, France's most prestigious
magic honor. Las Vegas 2000, the International Magicians Society recognized Jade as
"Best Female Magician of the Year".


Jade's fluency in Cantonese, Mandarin, and English has proven a bonus in her travels
and engagements, allowing her to exchange illusionary techniques with other master
magicians throughout the globe. As Jade's repertoire and talents expand and become
even more diverse, the extraordinary beauty and grace of her enchanting performances
will continue to enrapture audiences around the world!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Don’t miss the Beauty of magic,JADE, performing at Magic At the Beach in the cabaret and Champions of Magic Show!

MORE TO COME.... But register soon. We are capping it off this year at 250 and more suprises are around the corner.

ANOTHER NAME ANNOUNCED----IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

It wouldn't be Magic At the Beach unless we had at least ONE FISM WINNER.
Well, as it turns out, the Thursday night HEADLINER is one!!!!!!

welcome reception. This year's theme is the dazzling stars of HOLLYWOOD and we
have decided to bring in one of Hollywood's greatest magicians.....performing for
you a NEW one-man comedy show for all the attendees Thursday night. Each attendee
is going to feel like a star stepping onto the MAGIC AT THE BEACH red carpet.
And who better than Hollywood magician, GREGORY WILSON, to dazzle us that night?

Gregory Wilson is a two-time FISM award-winner with a number of best-selling
instructional DVD's on the market. In 1998, Greg was also awarded the "Most
