Gator Gate Gathering 2022
January 7, 8 and 9, 2022
The first Gator Gate Gathering is in the bag! Amazing lectures, a bevy of talented attendees and a very relaxing convention suite made this one of the best small magic convention. Take a look at some of the photos - if you weren't able to make it this year - we will definitely be doing it next year too!
Doug Conn has been working on the streets of New Orleans as a busker for over 20 years. Cards, coins, ropes - close up and parlor - Doug has performed them all under the most trying of circumstances.
Mike Gallo carries on in the tradition of his father, Lou. Even Lou knew Mike was the better magician. Cards, coins, props you have and never use, in Mike's hands become showstoppers. Nobody's better at table magic!
Curtis is known for his work with coins - but he is so much more than that! Cards - stage - platform - you name - he's done it! His work in Palms of Steel and Deceptions in Paradise, followed by numerous other videos, redefined coin magic for all of us.
Jared Kopf is- pound for pound- the greatest card man in the world. He's famous for his appearances with a dead-on Vernon impersonation. As the greatest student of Bob White, he carries on in the finest traditions of magic.
Subject to change- IE NOT WRITTEN IN STONE!
