Jeff McBride – Magician

Jeff McBride – New York City

I was a regular at Jackie Flosso’s magic shop on 34th Street. My friend Jeff Sheridan, conjurer introduced me to the magic community. I use to perform as a mime artist and could relate to magic.

I had an opportunity to do some head shots for then upcoming magician Jeff McBride. He now heads up a school for magic in Las Vegas and performs worldwide with his shows “Abracadazzle” and “Magic at the Edge“.

Dixon Place Music Performing Arts Video

Sinatra Simulcra – starring Jonny Cigar at Dixon Place – April 14th, 2011

Sinatra: born 1915, died 1998. Hits include, “That’s Life” and “I’ve Got You Under My Skin.” Won the Academy Award in 1953 for his role as Maggio in From Here to Eternity.

Simulacra: (noun). Implies an unsatisfactory imitation or representation.

The Noble Rot’ brought the wonderful and cocktail loaded Las Vegas enviornment to Dixon Place for One Night Only!

It was a ‘casino’ and ‘cocktail bar’ and ‘Jonny Cigar’ sang his way through a mix of Sinatra’s hits and never-before-heard material.

Jokes and monologues kept the hour going well and the videos of Frank Sinatra (the real one) singing with Jonny Cigar keeping sync were wonderful.

A great 7 piece band  lead by DANIEL BARNIDGE was a great asset for the audience and Jonny Cigar.
