The Michigan State University Magicians’ Club Rocks!

MSU Magicians with Jay Sankey

Mike McNee, a semi-professional magician from Kalamazoo, Michigan, serves as magic instructor of Michigan State University students with a specific emphasis on “creativity in presentations.”  Mr. McNee’s instruction was well-received by the special interest organization on the MSU campus.

 

The group has more than doubled in size from last year and now boasts nine full-time members.  According to the Club’s Constitution, members must demonstrate their ability to perform magic as part of their initiation.  This skills testing helps to prevent the dissemination of magic’s secrets through the curious. 

 

The club was featured in today’s Lansing State Journal. 

 

Is there a common philosophy amongst the Club’s members?  Their web page cites the following personality trait: “We’re just a bunch of crazy kids who love to watch and perform magic! We are magicians of all levels, from complete beginners to advanced performers.”

 

While the paper notes that magicians can earn $75 to $100 performing at parties and $1,000 for tradeshows, the article and the Club’s website make it clear the members are not into Magic for the cash. 

 

The group meets about twice a week, and provides instruction, camaraderie and evaluation.  The Club has also organized several opportunities for its members to perform including a “Safe Halloween” along with MSU’s fraternities and sororities. 

 

We congratulate the members on their dedication and enthusiasm.  We also congratulate Mr. McNee for his instruction and encouragement of Magic’s next generation.
