From the groundbreaking producer and director that introduced live entertainment to Myrtle Beach over 30 years ago, Pure Magic is an entirely new production starring The Wagsters. The Wagsters bring magic, amazement, comedy and drama together with captivating card tricks, confounding disappearing acts and even some silly sleight of hand. With a charm and wit that is truly contagious, this illusionary duo has already won many hearts. Voted Magicians of the Year by Myrtle Beach Herald, The Wagsters have been featured as a special act of Gilmore’s Thunder and Light show and The Carolina Opry Christmas Special over the last two seasons and were so well received that Gilmore saw an opportunity for a feature show. Gilmore said, “This is the sort of intimate magic show that every family loves and Myrtle Beach has had a void in this area of entertainment. It’s the best kind of good clean family fun. The Wagsters are young, charming and talented, their star will rise quickly. People of all ages love this appealing and compelling show.”

The year 2015 marked the 45th Anniversary of perennial classic-rock favorite, America. Founding members, Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell (along with former band mate Dan Peek) met in high school in London in the late 1960s and quickly harmonized their way to the top of the charts on the strength of their signature song “A Horse With No Name”. America soon became a household name and their best-known tunes, which also include “I Need You,” “Ventura Highway,” “Don’t Cross The River,” “Tin Man,” “Lonely People,” and “Sister Golden Hair” were cornerstones of 1970s Top 40 and FM rock radio. Forty plus years later, these friends are still making music together, touring the world and thrilling audiences with their timeless sound.
