Time is Running Out...


The Ventriloquist Central Birthday Bash 2013




October 5, 2013


That’s right... time IS RUNNING OUT for...the
Ventriloquist Central Birthday Bash
in Malden, MA (Boston area),
celebrating 7 years of Ventriloquist Central.




Since our last Birthday Bash (which was held on October 8, 2011) we’ve had those who attended ask, “Are you going to have another Birthday Bash?” Those who couldn’t make it and heard about how much fun everyone who attended had we get the comments, “If you have another Birthday Bash, I’m definitely coming to it!”

So, we decided that we’ll have another Ventriloquist Central Birthday Bash for 2013 in Malden, MA (Boston area). And we’ve been hard at work, securing the Hyatt Hotel (getting the best deal possible) once again for this event, plus getting performers for the Saturday night show and workshop/lectures to speak in the after noon.

The previous Birthday Bash was a blast….in fact here’s what some had to say about it:

"I had the greatest time this weekend at the birthday bash! I always have a good time at the Vent Haven Convention, but this was better. What a great great time. Dan- thanks so much and well done. Thanks for sharing your home and collection with all of us."
Jim Maurer

"Thank You so much Dan for such a GREAT time at the Birthday Bash. I learned a lot, laughed so hard and enjoyed myself way more than was humanly possible. Seeing everyone there was so wonderful. Dan I also want to thank Helen, you both made this Bash so enjoyable. She is such a peach ! Man I could go on and on describing the discussions and the work shops. Not even beginning to mention such great entertainment at the evening show !! One had to be there to know what I mean. This was a number one professional type of event, second to none. Thanks again for such a great time. If anyone missed it well..... you DID MISS it!"
Ron Scherer


And we had many comments similar to these.


One of the main points most seem to say was how they liked the small intimate group. It made it more fun. That’s the one thing we heard over and over and over again.

At the last Ventriloquist Central Birthday Bash we started the day by gathering at the hotel and spending a few minutes socializing with everyone. Then we broke up in groups to go over and see the famed Ventriloquist Central Collection.

We had lunch, then in the afternoon there were workshops and lectures. After that there was dinner and the BIG Show that featured Bob Abdou, Ed Thomas and Mike Robinson.

A GREAT time was had by all. In fact, check out some of last year’s fun…..

This year's Birthday Bash will even have more surprises and fun!!!

We will start off the day with some quick introductions and then break up into small groups to go see the Ventriloquist Central Collection (transportation provided).


Once we get back to the hotel, we'll have some time before lunch, so Steve and I will talk about some interesting "behind the scenes" stories, information and history about the Ventriloquist Central website.


As an added extra this year, we are offering an optional group lunch……where everyone (if you want to join us) will get together have lunch at a great little place. They will provide us with a nice room where we’ll be to ourselves along with a buffet style lunch offering a choice of three different entrees, a salad and dessert. It will be fun to have everyone in the same room enjoying each others company. (We will provide transportation).


The afternoon workshops/lectures will be fun as well as informative.


First up will be Bob Abdou and he will be  talking about "Write, Rewrite, Perform", showing you how to write ideas and answers to questions, rewrite them and perform all within 60 minutes. 


You've seen Bob's "Tidbits" on the Ventriloquist Central blog and this will be kind of an extended version of his helpful information that this professional ventriloquist has to share.


Next up will be my partner (and brother from another mother), Steve Hurst.  As most of you know, Steve has his own business with one part of it is building websites and helping his clients with marketing their products and services.  As Steve says he "helps you increase sales and profits by utilizing today’s technology."


Steve's subject will be, "How to Make Your Website Work For YOU".  He'll show you ways to get the best results out of your website to bring in more shows and opportunities by using a website model that has been PROVEN to work.


Following Steve, we have our good friend Mike Robinson who's been a professional entertainer for most of his life.  He's also spent over 10 years performing on the Holland American cruise ships. 


Mike's talk will be, "Secrets of Being a Professional Ventriloquist", where he'll give you the "ins and outs" of being a professional ventriloquist.  He'll also be doing an extensive Q&A session so you can ask him anything about how to be a pro.


After our afternoon talks, then we'll have an "Open Mike" session for those who want to perform or just try out some new material.


Our BIG Show entertainment will be spectacular this year as well.


YES, I Want to be a Part of the FUN!!!


First up we have Al Getler.

Al is no stranger to the vent community. Al has performed at theaters, casinos, comedy clubs and colleges across the USA. He has been seen on TV and also been the featured speaker/performer at many of the country's FORTUNE 500 companies, meetings and business celebrations. He was the Director at Vent Haven Museum in 1989.



Next on our list is Dave Deneen, aka Mr. Dead Guy.

Since we’re holding this event in October, the Halloween month, who better to have perform than Mr. Dead Guy.

Due to some unexpected personal issues, Ray Guyll will not be able to perform at the Birthday Bash.  However, we were able to get David Pendleton to step in at the last minute.

David is one of the nation's premiere ventriloquists and he will make you believe that anything can talk.  A twenty year veteran entertainer, David's humor and stellar technique keeps audiences laughing from start to finish.  Oh, yeah....did I mention he uses a McElroy ventriloquist figure?

So as you can see it’s guaranteed to be a fun time!!!


YES, I Want to be a Part of the FUN!!!

SPECIAL NOTE!!!! We can only have a LIMITED number of people who can attend and we have a few spaces left, so don’t hesitate and don’t be left out.


We were able to get a discounted rate at the Hyatt Place Boston/Medford hotel once again. This is a very nice hotel with great accommodations. The normal rate is $219.00, but we’re able to get the rooms for $155 per night (1,2,3 or 4 occupancy.... if you share a room with others you can really save).

Now last time, they sold out of the rooms and the last minute people had to scramble to stay at other hotels (that are not very close to this one). So if you plan on going, make your reservations NOW!!!


So don't delay and make your plans to be at the next Ventriloquist Central Birthday Bash, Saturday, October 5, 2013 in Malden, MA (Boston area).




See you there!
