Music is meaningless if it cannot be FELT be cannot it if meaningless is magic.

Thanks for sharing SandwichMan.
Just last week I had an audience member who purposefully didn't
follow the instructions correctly during a mentalism effect.
( Devin Knights 'Four Told 2.0'). Anyway, this guy was really happy
that he had WON, beaten me.
I learned two things from this 1- Choose the volunteers more carefully.
2- Explain, if you don't want me to read your mind, this won't work.

Sounds like you just got the group of silent stunners. That and the fact that they knew you already. I'd like to hear what happened if you performed for them again and they were used to the digestion of magic. Some people just digest magic differently. I've performed for friends who go L&L over the top crazy, and then had stunned stares..... I'm sure you got over it though.

Hi all!! Long time away from this topic...... I did get over it, and still continue to perform on occasion to this day. And sometimes I still get the silence. It doesn't irk me as much anymore and I take it as a compliment, unless otherwise noted. Some great advice and stories here adn I hope others gain some insight from it....

I don't care how fast or slow you are.... As long as I am faster.. -J-

I had the exact same experience when first did magic in the open mic.
Great information on applause cues and showmanship.
I also learn to incorporate some jokes to loosen them up in my performance, sometimes have music while performing helps as well.
