Magic Men Live Toronto June 4th 2017 The Danforth Music Hall

MAGIC MEN LIVE

@ THE DMH - TORONTO

 Wow, ok…Where do I even begin to explain this Magic Men Live experience. When I read the media request, for sure I would see if anyone was avail to cover them, but also hoped I could make it myself! So glad I did, it was thoroughly entertaining and am so thankful that photographer was able to come out and help me shoot! These shots are pretty stellar, especially for the minimal amount of time she had to shoot. Most people don’t realize how fast paced covering as set or event is, if you don’t have full show access it’s usually the standard first three songs no flash. Sometimes, at smaller venues the lighting is atrocious so you have to get creative if the media rules are no flash.

The male review took place at The Danforth Music Hall, it always makes me feel nostalgic for my childhood when I'm here. Growing up around these parts of the Danforth where we Greeks grow to open future restaurants. Greenwood and Sammon Ave, Pape Ave those were my old streets and blocks.  I was so tempted to wander down the street to Messini or Alexandros' to grab a gyro, but really didn't want to smell like tzatziki for two hours.  Back in the early 2000's my Father co-owned a cafe bar around the corner from Alexandros' situated beside Christina's at 494 Danforth to be exact, it was called "Moonlite Cafe". Now, its actually The Friendly Greek. Over the years it was many other cuisines like Chinese Dim Sum and Mediterranean.

 Like the many women there, I have never been to one of these male revues. Have been invited to a few of the Toronto butter faced, wannabe Magic Men crews but these guys are the definitely top notch. Majority of the crowd was female, young and old, every colour of the rainbow, I counted ten men other than the ones on stage. Did not know what to expect as I sat beside one of the groups of Bachelorette party goers. They were excited to see what was about to unfold, I was hoping not to get any uninvited shlongs dangling near my face as the guys skipped up and down the isle looking for the thirstiest chicks in the crowd. The bride to be had no idea she was going to a male review, her friends surprised her. That was nice of them, the Magic Men Live experience was actually classier than expected, not as raunchy as I would have imagined and there wasn’t full nudity. A lot of plump plumber bums that many of the ladies in the audience got a chance to get up close and personal with. The fellas of Magic Men Live were very hands on an let the ladies get just as handsy.

They had various themes, with lots of "costume " changes, like the MJ Thriller jacket theme as seen above in a shot from my phone. The show began with a count down on a screen and then host Myles came on stage to warm up the crowd he did a great job hyping up the audience and being  explicitly witty. I laughed when he said "Sadly, two men won't be at the show tonight...Your husbands and boyfriends!". That broke the ice and gave the crowd the okay to loosen up, "What ever happens at Magic Men stays at Magic Men". If the DMH's walls could talk, not only would it speak of the great music but now this unique event with so many perfect abs.
