Back from another trip to Maine

I spent the last 2 days on a fast trip to Maine for some work in Bangor.   One thing that made this trip different from any other in years,  I had my mother with me!  She had a few stores she wanted to go to in Bangor so I told her to come for the drive.   Was great to have her along

University Hypnosis Show

Last night I was back at Mount Allison University for a show.  Such a great group of people.   I'm impressed with how a group of University students will enjoy a clean hypnosis show.  It used to be that University students wanted an "x-rated" or "r-rated" hypnosis show,  but these days I actually find the opposite.   I recently talked to a friend that does strictly "adult" hypnosis shows, and was surprised that he agreed with me.   I don't know why this trend would be happening, but I for one am glad it is.  I don't like my volunteers embarrassed, and hate it when someone tells me that they would volunteer but they were embarrassed at a previous show done by someone else.   It's good to know that a clean laugh can be appreciated by all.  On the…

Corporate Entertainment in Red Deer Alberta

The last few days we had some great skiing at Lake Louise and Mt Norquay, and last night we did the corporate party in Red Deer.  It was a full party involving my corporate hypnosis show, Craig being the DJ (he played far later than anyone expected...), and lights for the whole room.   This has been an amazing trip.  We stayed in Banff and enjoyed the town as much as I think can possibly be allowed.  They have a great brewery/restaurant there that makes some incredible beers (brewing is one of my other interests...).   The show was a lot of fun,  I can say they were a great group of party animals.  I'd love to return anyday.   Time to pack up and go home to Nova Scotia,  I wish we could take the skiing home...

In Alberta

We're in Alberta,  and it's becoming clear that the theme of this year is going to be missing luggage.   Thankfully I bring everything essential for the show in my carry on,  but some of the ski gear didn't make it!  I'm not going to allow that to slow down my enjoyment of the trip.  Off to Mt Norquay for the day!

On the road again

It was good to be home for a few days.  I got a lot of work done,  but spent most of my time playing with kiddo.   Tomorrow I leave for Red Deer Alberta for a corporate show.  I'm super excited about this trip as my sound technician for the event is one of the people I've known in the entertainment business the longest.  Craig Robertson of Corporate Audio Visual & Entertainment Inc. has been around my show for over 20 years.  The last few years we haven't worked together as much, and I can't wait to hit the road with him.  Oh yeah,  in addition to performing one of Canada's top Corporate Entertainment shows, we'll be skiing too...   Off to ski, er work...

Home for a rest, well probably not…

I'm back from Sunday River Performing as part of The Black Diamond Family Entertainment Series.  Great trip,  the only problem is one of my bags got left behind.  Panic!!!   It's a bag I need to perform my corporate hypnosis show.  Thankfully, I don't have a corporate show for almost a week, and they say they're going to send it ASAP,  but I'll worry until it arrives.  I'm also missing my good socks,  this also worries me.   This time of year is busy on the business side.  I have a ton of schools and universities booking, as well as corporate event planners calling with new projects that are starting up.   Now off to the office...

The year is awesome already

I was lucky enough to ring in the New Year at one of my favourite ski hills, Sunday River in Maine.  I performed in the Grand Ballroom the night before New Years, and was able to enjoy the great skiing while there.   It was also the first time i performed in the United States with my new O-1 work permit.  The boarder patrol guard said he'd never heard of a hypnotist/juggler getting an O-1 before.  When I showed him my Guinness World Records he laughed and said that explained it.   The show at sunday River was very well attended,  and it was great to perform at a place I love so much.  I sure hope I'm able to come back soon (hint, hint)

New Year, New Blog!!!

Hi all I've never been one for blogging.  I do Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, but people keep telling me the benefits of blogging.  I don't really believe people are that interested in what I'm doing,  but if they are I hate to deprive them.   Honestly 2013 was a low year for me.  A low year with many highs.  I did a lot of cool things and did a ton of cool shows.  I also perfected my crossbow act and started on a ton of other crazy new routines.   I traveled very little in 2013, mostly to stay home with my son.  The exception was a few trips to Ontario for Corporate Hypnosis Shows during the Christmas season.  2013 will see a lot more travel.  Specifically because I have a ton booked already!   It's going to be a…
