Magician Daz Buckley has joined the MMF lineup this year from sunny Brisbane, QLD. Why someone would swap beautiful weather for cold Melbourne for two weeks is beyond me, however I was excited to see a performance from an interstate magician.
Daz warmly welcomed his audience (a mix of families and adults) and commenced magic routines that were set to music. These routines of classic magic were pleasant and elicited much applause from the audience. Whilst not everything seemed flow naturally during the show, Daz always communicated with his audience and ensured we were all having fun. A child was selected to learn some magic, and that routine was very entertaining. Daz’s performance featured gentle mentalism and plenty of classic magic that you’d expect to see during a magic show.
Despite a perhaps shaky start, Daz treated his audience well and ensured we all left the show smiling and feeling entertained. If you’ve never been to a magic show and perhaps want a ‘gentle’ show to start with, then this could be the show for you.
