September 15th Daniel Garcia Lecture

Save the date! Daniel Garcia is lecturing for us on September 15th!

Time: 7pm
Location: Langford Firehall #2 (3205 Happy Valley Road)
Price: $20 for members and $40 for non-members

Daniel Garcia is a Texas based magician who is known for his creative approach to magic as well as his off-the-wall, casual performance style.

He is not only one of the most influential creators in the industry, but he is also one of the most sought-after consultants for television magic. He has been David Blaine’s head consultant for the past 6 years he has also consulted and created magic for almost every major magician today, including Cyril, David Copperfield, and Dynamo.

In 2005, with the help of magic legend Paul Harris, Daniel started production on a 3 volume DVD set that would soon become an instant classic among the magic community. With its collection of highly visual effects, and unusual techniques, The Daniel Garcia Project became a must-have for a new generation of magicians as well as seasoned professionals.

Several years later, in collaboration with Paul Harris and the Buck Twins Daniel released three additional volumes of the Project series, cementing his status as a creative force to be reckoned with.

For his new “Magician’s Only” lecture, Daniel will share many of his favorite effects, as well as lots of NEW material that has not been previously released. The lecture will also feature handlings of his newest commercial creation, Mint Box. A diabolical, practical, semi-automatic switching device and one of the cleanest and most organic products ever created, Mint Box fits comfortably in your pocket – ready to perform at a moment’s notice.

It is rare these days for Daniel to commit to a full lecture tour, opting instead for occasional convention appearances. We are honored to welcome him to the 2018 season of The Can-Am Conjuring Lecture Series.

He has advised and created custom projects for some of the top names in our field and continues to produce a wide array of material that is considered to be among of the “best of the best.”

He’s been seen on Finnish and American television and performed on stages throughout the USA, Canada, South America, South East Asia, and Europe.
