Masters of Illusion featuring Tommy Wind
LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) —
It's that time of the week where we gear up for The CW's Masters of Illusion on Friday night. But today, we have local master magician Tommy Wind here with a sneak peek of the upcoming episode.
Born and raised in Staten Island, Tommy fell in love with magic at the age of seven, when his grandfather showed him his first magic trick, the Vanishing Hanky.
From that moment on, Tommy was hooked and devoted his time to learning everything he could about the art. He progressed steadily from then on, learning from every source he could, from books to master magicians like Jeff McBride.
At the age of nineteen, Tommy is now one of the youngest magicians to have achieved the title of Master Illusionist, and has performed for a multitude of audiences in countless venues, ranging from New York City, to Atlantic City, to Las Vegas.
He has entertained a vast range of clients, including the NFL and has appeared on the hit NBC show, “I Do.” The performer of several large-scale illusions, including his Jet airplane and Lamborghini appearances, places Tommy in the ranks of some of today’s top performers. Time Out Magazine calls him “mind boggling,” and Awe Magazine quotes, “he takes the audience to another place.”
Tommy Wind won the “Best Teen Magician of the Year” from the World Magic Awards, and is the youngest magician to have his own show on the Las Vegas Strip.
In addition to his passion for magic, Tommy is also an accomplished musician, playing both the drums and the piano. Using these skills in tandem with his magical talent, he creates a spectacular presentation of illusions in a show filled with both Rock n’ Roll and class.
Surely one of the newest and hottest up-coming stars, Tommy Wind’s broad style encompasses many different forms of magic, ranging from close-up and mentalism to escapes and grand illusions, making him one of the most versatile performers today. Make no mistake, Tommy Wind is sure to be a name not soon forgotten.
