Here is a brief description of what you will learn from Barrage:

  • FOURS MAJEURE – A very easy, self-working trick with five magical moments of increasing impossibility. Not just self-working, a tremendous amount of magical transpositions happen for doing almost nothing. Get ready for the mind-blowing ending. The secret is all in the signature Bannon engineering.
  • THREE IMPOSSIBLE THINGS –Challenge your spectator with three impossible feats. First, produce the four Kings. Second, have the spectator shuffle and cut the deck, only to once again land on the Kings. And just when they think they’ve seen it all, hit ’em with the grand finale: miraculously reveal the four Aces. It’s pure devastation!
  • HEART OF GLASS –Prepare to be blown away by a mind-bending transposition that involves nothing but a regular deck and a glass! No duplicates. Undoubtedly, this routine will become a staple in your repertoire!
  • NO NO NO MAYBE YES -Picture this: a spectator merely thinks of a card. Without touching the deck, you eliminate cards one by one to reveal the thought-of card! It’s a spellbinding and downright impressive finale that will have everyone talking.A self-working effect that can be done over the internet, over the phone, or in your next live performance with a borrowed, shuffled deck and the spectator doing all of the handling.
  • PAINT IT BLANK: Illustrate the power of imagination by revealing the chosen card between two jokers! An invisible deck feel with a normal deck of cards. This trick alone is worth the entire price of the book!
  • MUNDO – A small-packet Out of This World routine that will become your new favorite handling of this classic plot.
  • BANK JOB – A featured fooling effect a la Bannon with some bills and cards. Imagine mashing together a color separation, a Bank Night effect, and prediction that will fool the most astute spectators. Worth the price of the book.
  • TRIPLICITY 2022- Bannon at his finest. Three perfect demonstrations of your psychic superpowers. Even as you perform this effect you will be fooled by the method. Your audience doesn’t stand a chance. Well known giants of magic have called this their favorite Bannon creation. Find out why…

The routines are eloquently detailed in Bannon’s accessible writing style, unveiling the techniques employed alongside his clever, forward-thinking methodology.

No intricate sleights are necessary. Almost all routines employ standard playing cards, with many being impromptu. True to Bannon’s signature style, each construction is layered and meticulously honed until the effect becomes seamless.

Whether you are a skilled card worker or new to card magic you will find effects that can be seamlessly integrated into your repertoire. Bannon’s meticulous structuring of each routine means that your only dilemma will be deciding which ones to incorporate into your performances.
