DAVE CARROLL (YouTube mega-sensation) hires The Amazing Mr. J!

Honoured to be hired to perform magic for internationally recognized musician, and public speaker, Mr. Dave Carroll! You may know him from Sons of Maxwell fame, and as the ‘United Breaks Guitars’ YouTube sensation! You’ve likely heard their story: In July 2009, Dave’s band made major headlines when they released the song and music video “United Breaks Guitars,” explaining how after United Airlines personnel damaged their musical instruments, the airline refused to take responsibility or give compensation for the loss. Their video has reached 150 million around the world, and Dave’s story made it onto CNN, Oprah Winfrey Radio, ABC’s The View, among many other shows.

After my performance, Dave also generously gave me a copy of his excellent book when visiting his home. *HIGHLY recommended* if you’d like a truly engaging read, Dave details his encounters with celebrities like Gene Simmons, the whirlwind of media attention when he became an overnight phenomenon, and the ongoing saga of his battle with the mega-corporation, United Airlines.

And who doesn’t love a good underdog story? Dave Carroll is proof positive that one person can make a difference.

Dave also kindly gave me the personal privilege of seeing his own (now-famous) guitar,
after which I presented him with a balloon version, inscribed with the words: “Let’s see United break *THIS* guitar!”

His son Flynn was a fantastic helper in the show, and obviously comfortable having fun in front of a large group (like his talented Dad!)

Wrote Dave, when he signed his book: “Thanks for the amazing show, Mr. J- Flynn loved it!”
