Steve Dacri Innovates Again – Gets Props from Vegas Press

Steve Dacri

Steve Dacri?s new close-up show received very favorable reviews from the Las Vegas Review-Journal yesterday.(Read article here). The paper notes that unlike the big illusion shows in Vegas, it is very difficult to generate income from a close-up presentation. Mr. Dacri may just the idea.

The Review-Journal credits Mr. Dacri as ?a veteran sleight-of-hand artist who for years was a frequent performer at Caesars Magical Empire, a themed attraction that had its own small theater dedicated to close-up magic.? Now, he and his wife Jan areinnovating again byperformance ofclose-up magic in the back room of Sazio?s restaurant inside The Orleans Casino.

With the kind of questions every close-up magician hopes to hear, the paper pays its respect to the very accomplished Mr. Dacri:

“How does he get those signature foam balls — he calls them ‘Martians’ — into a person’s closed fist without that person feeling it? How did he move those silver dollars from one fist to the other?

“Don’t try to figure this out, you’ll just get a headache,” he advises his audience.”

Mr. Dacri is one of the truly good guys in Magic and has contributed so much to our Art. It?s nice to see that he?s not only still contributing with a new show format in a town that claims to have seen everything but that the town is giving him the props he deserves.

The Review-Journal finishes the positive critique thusly:

If you can…

If you can handle the loss of anonymity a darkened showroom usually provides, Dacri offers a real change of pace for locals who have exhausted all the usual tricks up their sleeve for entertaining holiday visitors.”

I can?t wait to see Mr. Dacri and his new show in a few weeks when I?m out there for the World Magic Seminar.

Make sure you check out Mr. Dacri?s website. It gives you a feel for Mr. Dacri?s magical range. One of the items that really drew my attention was a service he offers to trade shows: The Imposter Speaker.

You contact Mr. Dacri, work out the expertise and background of the speaker and he makes a presentation to your group as a bona fide expert or presenter. He then presents some of his outstanding magic in the course of the presentation. This idea is true genius.

We have Mr. Dacri’s website on the Inside Magic Links of Fame. If you have a link you’d like to add, click the Links tab at the top of the page.
