ILLUSION NOIR : ROB ZABRECKY

Magic Newswire podcast featured guest Rob Zabrecky was interviewed by Alibi.com just prior to a weekend of magic at Albuquerque's Kimo Theater. Other performers featured on the weekend of November 24th were David Kaplan and Danny Cole. In the interview Rob tells the tale of performing his first magic effect for a concert audience when he was with the band Possum Dixon. 

"He bought a vanishing handkerchief trick. But he knew the old-fashioned illusion might not play well before an audience of Baltimore hipsters. On stage, he set aside his bass and unwrapped a condom instead. He made it disappear. The crowd went wild. 'I fell in love with the culture of magic,' Zabrecky says."
