A Weekend With GAZZO!

Gazzo, a short bio….

Gazzo is a world-class entertainer who leaves his audience astonished and laughing hysterically with his unique cocktail of spellbinding magic and comedy. Penn Gillete calls him “the greatest.” He goes on to explain Gazzo’s magic metaphorically, “It is the singer not the song… [Gazzo is] the best singer we’ve ever seen… the best we’ve ever seen… you do it better than us.”

He is recognized as one of the top five magicians in the world. Unfortunately, he was struck by a massive stroke and lost his hand dexterity. While he lay on the hospital bed with all kinds of tubes and beeping machines, doctors told him he would never be able to do magic again. But Gazzo’s magic came to the forefront.

Gazzo persevered through his physical limitations and depression the stroke brought in his life. After relentless practice, dedication, and resolve he rose back like the Phoenix from the ashes. Lo and behold he came back as an even better magician than he was before his stroke.

In his career, he has performed more than fifty-four thousand shows and entertained a live audience of over 15 million people!  Amongst his magician peers, Gazzo is considered to be the magician who has performed in front of the most number of people on earth. His audiences around the world have rated his shows with 98% satisfaction.

He has entertained up to 5,000 people at a time in casinos in Las Vegas, performed on Penn & Teller’s Fool Us on national TV, performed at Universal Studios, trained thousands of fellow magicians at magic conventions, and entertained hundreds of people per show in his street performances. He’s trained thousands of magicians in his style of magic and is also a published author of three bestselling books.

There has been a movie made on Gazzo’s life and its spellbinding magic. Al Pacino, Halle Berry, Carmen Diaz, Steven Spielberg, Manny Pacquiao, Roy Schider and former world boxing champ Wladimir Klitschko are some of the hundreds of celebrity fans he has entertained. Lance Burton, David Blaine, Johnny Thompson, Maria Ibanez, Penn and Teller are some of Gazzo’s peers who vouch for his extraordinary talent of leaving your jaws drop in awe while you pee your pants, simultaneously.

Now that I have your attention, this is your opportunity to spend a weekend learning and/or honing up your street entertaining and busking from the master himself!

Gazzo is conducting a private weekend 3 Day workshop Friday November 9thto Sunday November 11th, in sunny Miami! This is a private, in-person event only and won’t be broadcast. This will be billed as a “Weekend with Gazzo” The workshop is limited to 9 spaces. It no doubt will sell out very fast!

You’ll be in a small group where you’ll REALLY meet one of magic’s greats, and get 1-on-1 hands-on help as he teaches you his VERY favorite magic tricks with a FOCUS on Street Performing and Busking. The value of this experience is truly immeasurable.

The workshop will include the use of the materials. You will have access to cups and balls, a pouch, and tables so you will get to focus on and get 1 on 1 help without having to worry about bringing the necessary props.

The days will be a nonstop thrill ride of learning, excitement and magic secrets. This is a boot camp where Gazzo will download his knowledge right into your brain.

Sad to report ***CLEM KINNICUTT***Triste en reportarles

My heart is heavy, the teara make it difficult to type this message, one of the most painful ones I have ever sent out.  My godfather, my great friend, has left us this evening and has gone on to that great stage in heaven; he has gone on to be with his beloved son Michael and to be an angel to watch over the love of his life Jean, his sons Jim, John and Jeff; his grandchildren and daughters in law and all those of us for whom he had a love that was very reciprocal.   Our Clem passed away peacefully this evening, being held by his wife of 57 years, after a short hospital stay but having fought the valiant fight.  He will be missed but never forgotten and left us knowing how deeply he was loved.  Clem Kinnicutt, our beloved Clem, Rest in Peace until we meet again.
There are no details of services at this time but I will send out an additional email tomorrow once I have the information and details.
We love and miss you Godfather!

Mi corazón está pesado, las lágrimas hacen difícil escribir este mensaje, uno de los más dolorosos que he enviado. Mi padrino, mi gran amigo, nos ha dejado esta noche y ha ido a ese gran escenario del cielo; ha pasado a estar con su amado hijo Miguel ya ser un ángel para vigilar el amor de su vida Jean, sus hijos Jim, John y Jeff; sus nietos y nueras y todos aquellos de nosotros por quienes tuvo un amor muy recíproco. Nuestro Clem falleció pacíficamente esta noche, tomado de la mano por su esposa de 57 años, después de una corta estancia en el hospital, pero habiendo luchado la valiente lucha. Será extrañado pero nunca olvidado y nos dejo sabiendo cuán profundamente fue amado. Clem Kinnicutt, nuestro amado Clem, Descansa en Paz hasta que nos encontremos nuevamente.

No hay detalles de los servicios en este momento, pero voy a enviar un correo electrónico adicional mañana una vez que tenga la información y los detalles.

¡Te amamos y te extrañamos padrino!

Sad to report***EUGENE BURGER***Triste en reportarles

Sad and heavy hearted is the news I share with you this morning.  The magic world is a buzz this morning with the news that the Dean of the Magic & Mystery School, a kind and gentle, brilliant man, Eugene Burger has passed away.

Speaking with a mutual friend this morning I was told “Eugene was the kind of person you could spend a few days with and he would impact your life forever”; that to me is one of the best descriptions of the man I’ve ever heard.  Time spent with him was impactful and once you met him you knew you had received a great fortune in that meeting.

My heart goes out to Jeff McBride and the Magic & Mystery School faculty, to all the countless people who Eugene touched in one way or another and to magicians present and future who through his writings will get to know a little bit about the man who was brilliant and generous with his talent and knowledge.

To him now has been revealed the greatest of all secrets; he now knows what is beyond the drapes of that greatest of all stages and he is now aware of the magic of another realm.  May he have a good voyage and may he rest in peace until we meet again and that time when he will once again delight us with his gypsy thread.  Rest in Peace Eugene, we will remember you always and miss you just as long.

Triste y de pesado corazón es la noticia que comparto con ustedes esta mañana. El mundo mágico es un zumbido esta mañana con la noticia de que el Decano de la Escuela de Magia y Misterio, un hombre cariñoso, gentil y brillante, Eugene Burger ha fallecido.

Hablando con un amigo mutuo esta mañana me dijo “Eugene era el tipo de persona con la que podrías pasar unos días y estos impactarían tu vida para siempre”.  Para mí es una de las mejores descripciones del hombre que he escuchado. El tiempo que pasó con él siempre era impactante y una vez que lo conoció usted sabía que había recibido una gran fortuna en esa reunión.

Mi corazón se dirige a Jeff McBride y la facultad de la Escuela Magic & Mystery, a todas las innumerables personas que Eugene tocó de una manera u otra y a magos actuales y futuros que a través de sus escritos y libros llegarán a conocer un poco sobre el hombre que fue brillante y generoso con sus talentos y conocimientos.

A él se le ha revelado ahora el mayor de todos los secretos; ahora sabe lo que está más allá de las cortinas de la mayor de todas los scenarios y ahora esta consciente de la magia de otro reino. Que tenga un buen viaje y que descanse en paz hasta que nos encontremos de nuevo y hasta el momento en que nos deleitará de nuevo con su hilo gitano. Descansa en paz Eugene, te recordaremos siempre y te extrañaremos por el mismo tiempo.

Sad to report **JOHN MOEHRING**Triste en reportarles

Friends, it has taken me all day to come to the inevitable acceptance that we have lost not just a good friend but also a great member of the magic world.  John Moehring, magician extraordinaire, creative, a great writer and one of the gentlest and kindest men I have ever met.  John served as MUM Editor for the S.A.M.  He was a huge asset to me while I was President, he kind, generous both with his time and knowledge and supported me every step of the way.  Today we lost a dear man who leaves a void in a pair of shoes that will be very hard to fill.  Godspeed and rest in peace my friend until we meet again.
Amigos, me ha tomado todo el día llegar a la inevitable aceptación de que hemos perdido no sólo un buen amigo sino también un gran miembro del mundo mágico. John Moehring, mago extraordinario, creativo, un gran escritor y uno de los hombres más gentiles y amables que he conocido. John sirvió como MUM Editor para la S.A.M. Él fue una ayuda enorme para mí mientras yo fui Presidente, él, amable, generoso tanto con su tiempo como su conocimiento y me apoyó en cada paso del camino. Hoy hemos perdido a un hombre querido que deja un vacío en un par de zapatos que será muy difícil de llenar. Viaja con Dios y descansa en paz mi amigo hasta que nos encontremos de nuevo.

The magic world is all the poorer today with the loss of not just a personal and loved friend, but also a legend of the magic world.  News comes today of the passing of my friend Paul Diamond.  Past owner of a large magic store in Ft. Lauderdale, magician, creator, manufacturer and friend, Paul has now gone on to join his beloved wife Andi who preceded him in death.  Certainly he will be performing beggars coins and other of his  wonderful effects with use of his reels as he entertains in that largest of all theaters.  May he rest in peace.

Sad to report…JORGE GARCIA “THE JACK”….Triste en reportar

It is with great sadness that I report to you that the pendulum has swung and that the magic and mentalism world is saddened this morning at the news that we have lost another one of ours.  Late last evening we lost a great performer and very creative Jorge Garcia, better known by his performer name “The Jack”.  It is unfortunate that I never had an opportunity to meet him but I do know his work and know some of those he has helped and guided along the path and have seen first hand the dedication and love for the art that was instilled in them by him.

There are no further details at this time and I will pass those along as they come to me.  Sending our deepest condolences to his family and to the countless friends and admirers around the world.  May he rest in peace.

Es con gran tristeza que les informo que el péndulo ha oscilado y que el mundo de la magia y el mentalismo se entristece esta mañana ante la noticia de que hemos perdido otro de los nuestros. A última hora de la tarde perdimos un gran intérprete y muy creativo Jorge García, más conocido por su nombre artistico, “The Jack”. Es lamentable que nunca tuve la oportunidad de conocerlo, pero conozco su trabajo y conozco a algunos de los que ha ayudado y guiado por el camino y he visto de primera mano la dedicación y el amor por el arte que les fue inculcado por él .
No hay más detalles en este momento y se los enviare segun lleguen a mí. Enviando nuestras más profundas condolencias a su familia y a los innumerables amigos y admiradores de todo el mundo. Que descanse en paz.
