The Denny & Lee Magic Studio is in serious danger of having to close it's doors.
Denny & Lee Magic Studio is a very special place, no other place like it in the world.

It would be a tremendous and devastating loss if the doors closed. To magicians, hobbyists and the arts community all over the world. 
Not only to the people who come into the shop but to audiences all over the world.

Denny has helped, influnced and taught so many.

Denny Haney is the type of guy they don't make anymore.  A straight shooter. Funny. Smart and so much more. He's helped so many through the years, asked for nothing in return but you enjoy magic and yourself.

Everyone is always welcome in the shop, sit around, talk magic, politics or whatever you would like.

Now Denny Haney & The Denny & Lee Magic Studio could a use little of our help.

Please donate whatever you can to save The Denny & Lee Magic Studio.
We have 2 days to raise $7,700 to keep the doors of The Denny & Lee Magic Studio open.

Many of you could have written about your own experiences with Denny and The Denny & Lee Magic Studio.
I hope you write about your experiences with Denny and the Shop when you donate.
Your stories will no doubt be better than what I've written and I hope to read them soon.

Thank you

"one thing I will never ever be able to accomplish is what guys like Denny Haney have and STILL DO every single day...... reach the customer face to face and impart real world knowledge aside from just selling you a trick " - Billy Diamond

"Denny’s not only a spectacularly experienced professional magician, but he’s also a collector and historian. His giant magic shop in Baltimore houses not only the world’s biggest retail magic space, with an enormous inventory of books, but also his personal collection of magic memorabilia and rare books that could fill a small museum of its own. Denny is a guy who has actually read the books he sells, and has deep knowledge of all aspects of magic, along with substantial sleight-of-hand chops when it comes to stage manipulation with cards, billiard balls, cigarettes and the like. He’s a hilariously entertaining and deeply charming stage performer, who on stage thoroughly conceals his deadly serious passions and approach to foundational principles of magic as an art.

Offstage is another matter altogether. He’s an ornery, cranky son-of-a-gun with a top hat brimming with opinions, and the genuine expertise to back them up. A wise and wisecracking sage, Denny has devoted himself to raising a couple of generations of accomplished magicians, including top shelf working pros like Puck, and Scott Alexander (who sometimes work together these days, and have each marketed terrific magic of their own creation)."

"Denny is a very special one of a kind man and performer.
Art and magic wouldn't be what it is today without Denny Haney,
Without his contributions,
Without his sharing of his encyclopedic knowledge of magic and performing.
When you want to know something about magic effects
Or performing,
You call Denny
Better yet go to the Baltimore studio (shop)
(10,000 sq ft, complete with stage, rehearsal room & walls full of books plus hard to find collector items).

For 30+ years Denny helped people all over the world laugh, have fun and experience magic by performing.

For the past 20+ years Denny has helped people all over the world experience magic through his teaching.

In a real magic shop, one of the last Brick & Mortar shops in the world. Denny cares about the people who come in the shop and he cares about magic.

Denny won't sell you anything you're not ready for, he will share with you the best advice. That's what you can't get with online shops, someone who cares about you. Knows you and wants you to do the best magic, to enjoy it. Whether it's for your friends and family or for audiences of 5,000."

Denny, you have produced a miracle. You got MAGICIANS to voluntarily give up over $10,000 for nothing in return! You must know that you and your shop are truly loved.

I saw that this was at 9,998 and wanted to be the guy who made it $10,000 plus. I think I was the first guy to post on FaceBook that Denny could use some help and I placed an order from two weeks ago before the GoFundMe was started. I first saw Denny perform when I was a punk teenage magician. He did the show at a Carl Bajor Magic Convention in New Jersey sometime in the 1980's. I may have been a wannabe then, but I knew a pro when I saw one! He was outstanding on that show, and like a fine wine, a good cheese, and an excellent steak; Denny has only gotten better with age. I see him every time he performs in Los Angeles at the Magic Castle to marvel at his grace and skill and timing and now I will make the trip to visit Baltimore to see the shop because I know it's worth the trip! :-) Denny Rocks! Long live the Denny & Lee Magic Studio in Baltimore! :-)

Thank you, Denny, for the positive influence you have on the magic community. Now I'm off to grab some goodies from your e-shop.
