Paul Voodini

As a child, Paul became obsessed with science fiction movies, super-hero comics, and the Victorian horrors and melodramas such as Dracula and Frankenstein. With these obsessions and influences, little wonder then that Paul was drawn as an adult into the murky world of the stage magician, and for many years Paul worked professionally as a mind-reader and hypnotist. In this environment, Paul discovered that his wild imagination was a distinct advantage, and allowed him to dream up (one could say conjure up) new presentations, new angles, and new performance styles for magic shows. He began writing manuscripts and instructional booklets for other performers, outlining his somewhat unique perspectives and ideas. These became very popular within the magic world, most especially in the subset of magic occupied by mysterious mind-readers and pseudo-psychics.

Eye Magi

This story starts way back in the early 1980’s when a young man of 13 discovered magic for the first time and he was immediately hooked. He read every book he could get his hands on. He studied the classics, practiced his sleights, worked on his showmanship and developed a love that would last for a lifetime. Over the years he never lost his enthusiasm for magic although his interests have shifted slightly. Now after 30 plus years he is drawn to the genre that is best described as bizarre. There is a special feeling that goes down one’s spine when one embraces the slightly out of the norm. He is enchanted with the storytelling aspect of this genre that delves into the spooky and spiritual. He realizes the power that words and imagery has over people and how it can transform an effect into something on the verge of supernatural. Today he invites you to into his world to see some of the props, products and routines that he has available for your performance consideration. Many items are handcrafted and hand-aged and are available in limited quantities.

Tiffany Allen

Dubbed by Vanish Magazine “The New Georgia Wonder”, Tiffany has devoted the last 5 years towards resurrecting a performance long forgotten by history. “The Georgia Wonder” was performed in the 1880’s by a select few young women wherein they were able to “harness magnetic forces” to become more powerful than men twice their size. After over a year of digging thru dusty archives and trailing down rare texts and whispered accounts, Ms. Allen began rebuilding the act. After 4 additional years of research and performance the “Georgia Wonder” has been reborn with an updated spin blending magic, history, and personal empowerment. Ms. Allen has won multiple magic awards, and is a proud member of the exclusive group Sleight Club in Charlotte, NC.
