Jay Marshall Performance Clips

Postby Tom Dobrowolski » November 20th, 2011, 2:21 pm

Some footage we shot of Jay Marshall in the fall of 1996 at Magic Inc in anticipation of releasing a video. Jay decided not to go through with the project at the time but told me to do whatever I wanted to do with the footage when he passed away. I've uploaded most of them to YouTube here:

I hope you enjoy them as much as I have over the years. I miss my friend. Mahalo Jay for everything.

Glad you liked it Ken. I forgot to mention Fran Marshall is in the Lefty clip heckling Jay. There are a number of clips of Jay performing on my YouTube channel. Hope you get to watch them all.

Tom,

Thank you for making these available! There really isn't a lot of footage of Jay out there, especially on YouTube. It's important that performances like these are shared and don't get lost forever.

Thanks Steve and I agree. I was surprised when a couple of younger magicians thanked me and told me they had never seen Jay perform prior to seeing these clips. I'm not sure I'll leave them up on YouTube forever but they'll be there for now. When I have some free time I'll clean them up a bit and put them together on a nice DVD. For now I just wanted to make sure they got out there. I know Jay would like that. For those people who didn't know Jay hopefully these clips will give them a taste of what Jay was like for those of us fortunate enough to have known him I hope this brings back some great memories.I have a couple more clips I didn't post yet. Not sure I will.

Over the years I knew him Jay had become a good friend and I miss him. I was blessed to have known and spent time with him.

I hope folks are enjoying these clips.

Tom,

I'll join with those other young(ish) magicians in thanking you for putting these up. To my embarrassment I had the chance of seeing Jay live at Blackpool a good few years ago (probably the last time he did it) but chose to stay in the bar instead. To my deep regret.

So thanks again

When was Jay in Blackpool? I've been for the last twenty years and never knew he had been there :(

Hi Ian,

Gosh, now you have me doubting myself. I am nearly sure he was perhaps 10 years ago or so. Maybe I am wrong but I could swear he was there.

Either way I'm glad these video's are online.

Jay was at the Blackpool convention at least twice since I've been going. I remember taking the train after the convention from Blackpool to London and sitting with Jay and Tommy Edwards.

Jay did the gala show sometime around 1996. It was the year John Styles MC'd it. A group of young magicians from Dublin, including Brendan, attended and beforehand none of them knew who Jay was. It was an excellent gala show. On the flight back to Dublin I asked them what was the highlight of the weekend. Bear in mind that this was their first big convention. The consensus was that it was "the old guy with the glove."

A pity Brendan missed the gala show.

Thanks for setting my mind at ease Quentin.

And yes, a grave pity.

He performed in Blackpool sometime during the period 1990 to 1993 - I remember seeing him there and those were the only four years I have been there.
