“Magic Celebrity Advisor to Hal Sparks on VH1’s Celebracadbra”

Check out Rocco:

Just imagine your audience’s amazement when you reach into thin air with a hand that’s clearly empty and pluck a glowing ball of red light out of nowhere!  You can pass the light from hand to hand, make it vanish and reappear!  This is real magic!  This is the D’Lite!  Remember when you first bought this amazing illusion!  This is one of magic’s best-selling magic tricks in history and was created by Master Magician, Rocco Silano.

Nominated Ten times for “Magician of the Year” by the Academy of Magical Arts in four categories: Winner of Backstage Magazine’s Award in Excellence in Cabaret Two Times Winner of the Manhattan Association of Cabarets as “Variety Performer of the Year;” Winner of Siegfried & Roy’s Golden Lion Award for both: Stage and Close-Up Magic: and the only American to win awards at two FISM World Tournaments: in 1994 in Yokohama, Japan, and “Most Original Act” in 2006 Stockholm, Sweden.  Rocco Silano will be in San Francisco live, teaching his original form of creative magic and misdirection!

Rocco started early in his career as a student under the legendary sleight-of-hand master, Tony Slydini.  In fact, he made Rocco promise to “make the world remember Slydini and his magic.”  From his humble beginnings, Rocco has created and perfected his own style of magic and carries with him all the elements so crucial for “extraordinary magic.”  Poise, wit, charisma, a European style of charm that is totally disarming, along with impeccable sleight of hand, that can be applied to the grand stage illusion like no other can. 

Rocco’s Lecture will teach more than just the D’lites.  He will recreate some of the classic effects of Slydini – the way Slydini taught him.  He will teach Slydini’s principles, ideas, techniques of misdirection, timing and coordination.  These concepts are invaluable and will crossover to any form of magic, whether it close-up or stage.  Rocco’s sleeving methods are world renowned and will be a major feature in the lecture.  As a special bonus, Rocco will be performing parts of his FISM Championship Act.  There will be something for everyone!

“Jarrow would roll over in his grave if he saw what Rocco does with his sleeves.  Rocco is certainly original in his work, a genius.  How he keeps track of the intricate things mystifies me, it’s astounding!”-Dai Vernon “Simply put, there is NO ONE like Rocco.  His magic is truly unique and hits spectators in a way that hey don’t see coming.  His performance has a power to it that makes the experience completely magical.  I have watched him perform hundreds of times and seen audiences laugh, gasp, cry and cheer.  At the end of his performances people are always on their feet applauding, because they have witnessed real magic.  That’s the Rocco effect.”-Todd Robbins “The epitome of real magic!”-Harry Blackstone, Jr. “When Rocco performs, audience claim pure magic and janitors call a hell of a mess.  You got to love Rocco.”-Stephen Bargatze “Rocco is one of the best sleevers in the world.  His attention to detail combined with his creativity is out of this world.  That is why he has closed the first half of the final 4F Gala Show, for the past 10 years.”-Obie O’Brien “Rocco, you are a real artist!”-Michael Jackson
