Alex Ramon Mesmerizes at Gallo

Alex Ramon Mesmerizes Millions By Efren Martinez

Abracadabra, according to my wife and my mother in-law, his magical talents will reach out and grab ya.

On July 4th Alex Ramon, from Richmond California, received one of the highest historic awards that recognized his outstanding achievements as an “illusionist.”

While we were watching our Modesto fireworks light up the skies on the 4th, over 1500 magicians met in St. Louis, Missouri and made their own fireworks in a special ceremony. It was the largest American convention of its kind, a combined effort of the Society of American Magicians and the International Brotherhood of Magicians. The Milbourne Christopher Award is dedicated to the memory of the American magician and author which recognizes “notable contributions to the art of magic,” and “excellence in the magical arts.” Previous winners of the Milbourne Christopher Award include Siegfried and Roy, David Copperfield, Harry Blackstone, Jr. and Lance Burton.

At age 29, Alex Ramon is the youngest magician recognized for this honor. “Only 20 magicians in history have ever received this award,” Alex Ramon was quoted in saying; “I was just humbled and speechless to join a group of magicians I admire and respect. It’s just unbelievable.” This is not the first time that this young magician has made history. During the award ceremony Ramon was cited for his groundbreaking work onstage, first at age 21 with a touring Disney show, then at 23 for two seasons as the second-youngest ringmaster (and the first magician ringmaster) in the history of Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus, “The Greatest Show on Earth.”

One of his new grand stand illusions will be to actually levitates someone on top of a sound wave, it’s not like anything you’ve ever seen before. Don’t miss his amazing show at our Gallo Center for The Arts on July 20th. It’s friendly enough for kids as well as exciting and entertaining to keep everyone at the edge of their seats.

About the Author:

I answered the call back in 1983; mixing Music and Entertainment with an eccentric European style has always come easy for me. In the early 80's I was the Disc Jockey for most of the high school dances in Modesto. In the late 80's I found myself in Hollywood working as a dancer and sound engineer for various professional recording industries. In 1990 my wife of 25 years and I started (The Quake Mobile DJ ®) which was seeded from San Francisco's 1985, The Quake, radio station that only lasted a short while on the air. 26 years later The Quake Mobile DJ is bigger & better than ever in the Entertainment industry. Real-Estate, photojournalism, event promoter, saving animals, travel and fitness are a few other of my interests. I also enjoy motivational speaking to children and to those who are struggling with addiction. In my life, I have always been a very direct person and once I see a goal I won't quit till I've achieved it. But out of all of the above I feel in my heart that the best inspiration in my life is my wife and my love for the faith that I practice. Phil 4:20
