BUSKING by Jamie D. Grant, Part 1 of 3

~Click the pic to watch the video!~

Well, I finally busked! After years of Corporate gigs and Private functions, I thought I should take it to the streets to see how I'd fare in the real world. Needless to say, my eyes were opened. Wide.

So this video/review will be part 1 of 3, with this first installment here simply being the video of what happened. Next week, I'll do a more traditional Magic Friday write-up (detailing gear, effect selection, etc.), and then for the final week 3, I'll do a video wrap up of the whole experience.

Please comment with any questions and comments and I'll answer them either next week or in week 3's video.

That was really neat Jamie. I think all magicians have a secret fantasy of being that guy back in the alley "hey, lemmie show you somthin mister.....see I gots this magic rope and...."

I had one guy ask to see my hands during Fiber Optics but I'm pretty seasoned with dealing with hecklers I think. The key is to just play with them, meaning, just have fun with it.

Congratulations, Jamie! It takes guts to face (and form) a crowd on the streets! (It takes guts to face kids, whether on the street or in a birthday setting, but at least they don't carry switchblades.)

Frankly, your third act (at the very least) looked good enough to be worth more than you took in. But for a first time out, they tell me that if you don't die of heart failure, it's a good night.

You done good, Mr Canadian Brother!

Great Video. I always look forward to reading, and now watching, your magic friday columns. Keep up the great work!!! I can't wait to see part 2 and 3.

Thanks for the heads up on the color problems- I had to delete my post, and repost it, but the layout is back to normal now.
