Branson’s Best Illusionists of All Time
Over the years, I have seen a great number of Magicians short and tall come through Branson. But that doesn’t mean, they weren’t strong on stature. Here’s a cool list of some of the best that have made their home here. And some that are still here.
1)Kirby Van Burch-First came to town with the Five star theater. Quite an opus of entertainment it was. Designed to be a Theater’s theater, it even had it’s own spotlight that shined at night and into the morning. He was really the first man of magic, to call Branson home. His tricks were amazing. From sawing a women in half, to Lion’s and tigers, and even making a helicopter disappear.
2)Darren Romeo-was a wee man of magic. Brought to town by Sigfreid and Roy, he was sponsored by them. He was great at up close magic and all kinds of stuff. Put on one heck of a show out at the Welk resort. “Where there music in his magic, and magic in his music.”
3)Jeff Daniel-not the guy your thinking of from Dumb & Dumberer. This guy was one of the best up close street magic magicians, ever seen. He combined with Kirby at the Grand Palace to put on one heck of a show. With up close magic, and Grand Illusion. It was one of the best I had ever seen.
4)Bart Rocket-presiding in the old Christy Lane Theatrer, this guy could work a room. And bring in illusions to suit any crowd. During his tenure Branson was in a bit of a transition, but he did very well.
5)Malinda @ the Magical Mansion-This was a great show. She wore chaps to create quite an atmosphere at her show. And did quite well with different sword illusions and different things. She was great.
These are the top five illusionists of all time. Stay tuned for more Swashbucklers tomorrow. Or the next day. thanks
