Something Brand Spanking New in the 21st Century!


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Pop Haydn in the 21st Century! is coming to Magicopolis.

This show, presented March 7th and April 4th in Santa Monica, will demonstrate three Steampunk/Magical devices…but unlike most artistic “replica” devices, these all actually work under scientific test conditions.

This is new for Steampunk, and new for Magic. These are not boxes that do magic, these are magical devices that have histories and stories that are untold in the show, and can only be hinted at:

The Teleportation Device which sends a dollar bill (borrowed, signed, corner torn and serial number noted) into a freely chosen pristine raw egg under scientific test conditions

The Tesla C-2000 a highly modified version of a Tesla Coil, which bends the force of gravity in such a way that a 110 pound girl can withstand with one hand the full weight of any large man in the audience and can not be lifted barefoot from the floor by anyone in the audience.

The Sphere of Destiny, also known as Cleopatra’s Eye, which will answer any question the audience dares to ask with deadly accuracy and insight.

I have followed Steampunk for some time. I was a featured performer at the World Steam Expo in Dearborn for two years. I was a panelist on Steampunk at Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo, and was featured in the book Steampunk Gazette. This is something new in Steampunk.

I am a past Vice President of the Magic Castle, and a six-time “Magician of the Year” at the Magic Castle, and nominated again for Stage Magician of the Year this year. This show is something new in Magic.

It is made for the 21st Century by people who are not originally from the 21st Century.

We have live music, magic, comedy, and the wonders of radio-magnetism.

It is not a reenactment of vaudeville, the medicine show or anything else.

It is History being made in the Present.

Hope you can make it!

It is going to be a hoot!

The Sphere of Destiny will answer questions from the audience about personal issues of health, success, happiness, lost objects, and so on, and will both predict the future and reveal the past. Don’t miss this uncanny 21st Century demonstration of 3000 year-old technology.

Pop Haydn in the 21st Century!

Pop Haydn in the 21st Century! is a wonder-filled evening of fun packed with music, comedy and magic.

Pop Haydn demonstrates his Teleportation Device and pitches his Amazing Miracle Oil and also his new Magnetized Water–a modern miracle for health and energy.

Pop will demonstrate the amazing abilities of the Sphere of Destiny, and answer audience questions about the future–about love, health, money and lost objects.

The show features the sexy, sassy excitement of our Louisiana Songbird Bonnie Gordon, the fire and magic of sultry sorceress Sophie Evans, and the good-time music of Professor Dave Bourne and the 21st Century Boys.

Pop Haydn will present Tesla Girl, who will bend the very force of gravity itself while immersed in the powerful radio-magnetic field generated by Pop Haydn‘s Tesla C-2000–a highly modified version of a Tesla Coil.

The show is a lot of fun and is geared toward an adult audience–but it is still family-friendly.

Steampunks, time-travelers, dandies and other 19th Century expatriates are welcome–no weapons, please.

9th Annual Soapy Smith Night Photos

The 9th Annual Soapy Smith Night at the Magic Castle, held on July 8, 2012, was a great success! We had 420 attendees, and raised $2,520 for the Vernon Fund!

Thanks, everyone!

For nine years, the Magic Castle has celebrated the famous gunfight on the wharf at Skagway, Alaska on July 8, 1898, when the great Soapy Smith, the King of the Frontier Conmen, and the finest exponent of the Shell Game thet ever lived, was gunned down and his gang of 100 con men who had ruled the entry to the Gold Rush from its inception were arrested or scattered.

At the Magic Castle, we have a wonderful party each year to celebrate the memory of this clever bad man. We turn the place into a Gold Rush era saloon, with antique gambling tables for Chuck a Luck, Faro, Black Jack, and Roulette, along with all sorts of other games like the Shell Game, Three-Card Monte and Fast and Loose. There are prizes for the best dealer and most successful player. We have a costume contest as well. Everyone dresses up in 1890’s attire, and there are prizes for the most authentic, funniest, and sexiest costumes. We have a toast to Soapy’s ghost, and live Old Time music provided by Professor Dave Bourne and the Medicine Show Band.  Chef Anton, the two-time national trick shot champion at pool, presents his incredible demonstration of billiards wizardry. We have a live auction, presided over by professional auctioneer and wonderful magician/vaudevillian, Rob Zabrecky.

It is one of the most fun nights  of the year at the Magic Castle.
