Updating details takes time

Hi All,

As I sit here typing away using just two fingers you can imagine what I’m going through. Trying to update my website and facebook page when you don’t really know what you are doing then that also works against you. It makes me think I wish I’d taken more notice when we did computers at school (or should I say Computer as there was only one in the School) I know for the  younger generation looking at this on there Ipads that they have had provided by School, there was a time before the internet and computers. I had a conversation  the other day about when I was younger and if I wanted a quiet chat with a Girlfriend then I had to give her the number to the nearest phone box and get her to ring there otherwise you had your parents and siblings listening in not to mention the people on the party line. Anyway listen to me moaning  looks like I’ve got done what I wanted to achieve tonight back to the magic.


Bye for now



New Year, New Magic

Hello everyone and first of all can I say Happy New Year. Its been a hectic Christmas for me with my day job plus the gigs that I have had over the Christmas period too. On top of that having a 7 year old daughter home life is pretty hectic too. I’m currently sat here trying to type this blog with two 11 week old kittens trying to grab my fingers as I type which is making this blog ten times harder to write. With the new year comes a new start in magic with lots of new magic bought over the last few months so time to update my routine and try out new things in my act. Logging off for now before I lose all my fingers lol  Bye for now

Magic Fascinates me daily

As I sit here typing this out I am excited to be doing what I love. Every aspect of magic fascinates me every day it keeps me alive wanting to improve with every performance finding new ways to perform the effects, and looking for new effects to add to my reportiore. I looking forward to Thursday at the Hull Magicians Circle and a Lecture by an amazing Magician called Axel Hecklau from Germany who I have a lot of respect for and gearing up to see his new effects that he will be performing. As I sign off tonight just remember if you have any events coming up in Hull and are wanting something different to entertain your guests then add a magician to the entertainment and give danvoakes a call on 07740353991 Hull born and bred.


Football distracts the Magic

I’ve been sat here practicing new tricks with varying success but then find myself being distracted by the football. I’ve been watching the Liverpool Middlesborough game and as it went to penalties I decided to sit and watch it as I thought it would only take a few minutes then go back to the magic. But then the magic happened on screen seeing the teams take 30 penalties in total before they could be separated now that is truly Unbelievable.

Bye for now.
