Dan Nelson, Magician & Mentalist, Presents MIND GAMES, with Pre-show Music by WSU-alum Ryan Howe

October 15 @ 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM


Join magician and mentalist Dan Nelson for his evening show ‘Mind Games’, with a pre-show by WSU-alum & local rising musician Ryan Howe! We’ll explore the forces of mind-reading, intuition, body language reading, & influence through fun & interactive adult magic & mentalism routines that I’ve honed over the years, as the show builds to a subliminally-influenced?! finale!! Will you be able to tell if real ‘mental’ forces are at play, or if it’s all just illusion & magic tricks, or maybe a combination of both?!?!

I would personally like to invite you and your crew to our show, and would like to ask for your help in spreading the word about this special, one-night-only event, limited to 50 patrons! While I’ve performed for privately-booked shows (some of which are private events, others which are open to the public) from 1994-2001, then from 2014-present, this is my first public offering where I am securing a public space and selling tickets, in order to bring my show to a wider audience! We are expecting a great turnout.. is it in your future to be part of our audience?! Please note that this clean-language magic show is for ages 10 and over, due to the nature of the content presented.
