The Master Magician Amazes even the doubtful J-Love

“He is the truth!” said Reach Magazine TV host J-Love after Master Magician Lance Burton performed a magic trick during our exclusive backstage interview in The Mirage in Las Vegas where Burton has been performing for 13 years.

Introduced to the world of magic at an early age, Burton still performs the trick with children during his show at The Mirage, just as magician Harry Collins performed on him when Burton was six-years-old.  The magician performed a trick called “The Miser’s Dream”-where he seemingly pulled silver dollars out of the children’s ear.

Burton also talked about what sparked his interest in magic, what magicians he looks up to, and what he believes the future has in store for magic.

Burton met with J-Love and gave the Reach Magazine TV crew insight about where magic and music should mix to bring entertainment to the next level.

“Shout out to my boy L-Money.” –

J-Love’s hip hop nickname for Lance Burton

“Hands down, Lance Burton is one of the most amazing entertainers I’ve ever met,” said J-Love, who is currently still trying to decipher the magic trick Burton performed with him. “Lance is the truth; his show was phenomenal and I would encourage everyone who visits Las Vegas to check it out.”

Don’t miss the unbelievable magic trick Burton performs with J-Love on our ‘Las Vegas Shows’ special. Stay tuned for the air date, and check out the Reach Magazine TV premier November 9, 2009 on LA Media TV.

5 tips to step your game up in today’s music industry

Reach Magazine TV’s  host James “J” Love has been in “game” since 1994. In that time  J has gone from being an indie artist running a small independent record label, to heading a multi-media full service entertainment company and marketing firm.  J- Love has also released and produced four independent musical compositions.

He reveals 5 tips to step your game up in today’s music industry.
1. Get technological.
Technology enables everyone to do something exciting at the click of a button.
“It’s beautiful because it’s so easy to go global. We all have an advantage now, back in the day we use to sell our music out of our trunks, at the park, and at school – not so glamorous.”
2. Put your music out there.
Programs like Soundclick and Twiturn  provide services to digitally download and share your music online. “Not having to physically manufacture CD’s makes it easier for people to distribute their music.”
3. Get your social media grind on.
Make your presence known on social media sites like MySpace, Twitter, Bebo & You Tube. Make sure you keep your friends interested by constantly posting new content, and updating regularly. Take Soulja Boy,  for example, his popularity on MySpace & YouTube, led him to land a record deal. “Whether you love or hate his music, he completely changed the game.”
4. Beat your music up.
Getting producers to produce beats are expensive, to make your own beats use programs like Frutyloops  or Cake Walk.  What if you don’t have the ingenuity to make your own beats? This brings me to the next tip.
5. Make a mixtape.
A mix tape or an underground CD that has instrumentals already used by some artists is a great way to break into thegame. You just have to make sure your lyrics and style are banging.jlove

Success is based on ingenuity and hustle. If you don’t have the money to do it, its ok, just get your grind on.”~J-Love
