We go back a ways with Magician Bill Blagg. When we were fist getting the live show underway he had a gig at the Frauenthal coming up the next night and on a whim, we shot him a note on Facebook saying "Want to drop in?" We got a resounding "YES" in reply and just like magic, we had a national touring entertainer coming on our show from Smash. He was a great guest, he involved our audience incredibly and he did some fun giveaway's while he was there. To us, it was a pretty big deal to have a guy like Bill speed up the tour schedule to make our show and we don't often forget those who help us.
Bill like many other entertainers got sidelined for a while in the pandemic, but he's a pretty innovative guy and found all new kinds of ways to reach an audience with PPV specials and his line of magic retail kits. That live performance though, that's the heartbeat of any entertainer and with the thought of some adaptation and innovative ways to keep a little social distance, Bill got crackin' on how to maintain all he does and make sure safety came first. He got back out on the road, he did a residency out in Vegas at the South Point Casino and now, he's bringing that Vegas show to Muskegon Friday night Oct 8th.
There are still tickets available and they are priced super affordably so the family can get out and enjoy. It's an experience for all with illusion and fun and some added surprises that Bill talks about in our chat! Take a listen.
The Frauenthal has been a stop for Bill for YEARS. It's just awesome to have an act like his come to town in the remarkably beautiful Frau. If you like, mask up if you are comfortable otherwise, know that the Frau works diligently to keep things safe and that as we return to "normal" again, it's events like The Magic of Bill Blagg that will be key to the continued flourishing of Downtown Muskegon. Treat the family to a great night out Friday night and see Bill! We're sure you'll have a great time. You can visit Bills website for some clips and more by clicking below!
