Federal Hill Illusionist Wows Crowds

People flocked the streets in front of Illusions Magic Bar, 1029 South Charles Street on October 29th to watch Spencer Horsman escape from not one, but two, straightjackets while suspended 50 feet in the air from a crane. He successfully completed the stunt to wild applause. "I'm just glad the wind died down," said Spencer.
The street was blocked off to cars to make way for the event, and hundreds gathered under the spotlights to wait for the main act. Many were community residents who came to support their neighborhood magician, others came from outside the city to catch the stunt, and some diners and shoppers from area restaurants and boutiques got an unexpected treat. The media was well represented as well.

Spencer dazzles the audience every Friday and Saturday night with shows starting at 9:00pm and 10:00pm, respectively. Sit back, relax, have a few drinks, and be prepared to be kept on the edge of your seat all night. The next special event will be Illusion’s New Year's Eve party on December 31, 2010. Call (410)-727-5811 or visit for more details.
