January 2010 Highlights: Orlando trade show, San Diego meeting, Atlanta nightclub

Posted by Joe M. Turner | TurnerMagic.com on January 27, 2010

This blog has been neglected for several weeks, but for all the right reasons!

Biosound EsaoteI traveled to Orlando to represent ultrasound equipment manufacturer Biosound Esaote at a trade show and conference. This group hired me for a trade show in Ohio last quarter, and as a result of this month’s conference they have already hired me for another event. Yes, we had the biggest crowds at the show, and in fact we had other exhibitors bringing their own customers over to the booth to see what was going on!

International Brotherhood of MagiciansI left Orlando to go to San Diego for the midyear board meeting of the International Brotherhood of Magicians. I joined the Executive Committee of this organization last summer and am serving a three-year term. San Diego was beautiful (if still damp from the heavy rains). It was great to see International President Jack White recovering well from his spinal cord stroke last summer. All the meeting attendees were treated to a visit to Jack’s fantastic museum of magic, which houses his amazing collection of props and memorabilia. IBM Ring 76 also put on a fine show to entertain us after dinner. Can’t wait to go back for the convention this summer!

Finally — I start a new gig in the Buckhead district of Atlanta this week. I’m now the resident magical entertainer at Tongue & Groove nightclub and lounge at Lindbergh City Center. Keep an eye on my Facebook status to see what nights I’ll be appearing. (By the way – thanks for helping me get more than 1000 fans on Facebook!)

My first night at T&G is tomorrow, January 28th, from 10pm to midnight. This venue certainly departs from my typical corporate fare… but then again, after December’s fantastic event at the Wynn in Las Vegas, I guess I’m up for the challenge. But don’t bother trying to corrupt me, girls (or boys!) — I’m happily married!

    TnG was a fab success last night — I’m already in discussion with the entertainment director about a number of future dates…
