“SATURDAY KINSMEN SHOW HAS AYLMER CONNECTION”
The Aylmer Kinsmen Club is presenting Illusionist Brian Michaels Saturday night at the EECC as a fundraiser for cystic fibrosis. Brian is married to and assisted in his show by the former Carrie Lamers, a niece of Andy Lamers of Aylmer. Carrie told the AylmerNews she was raised in the Ingersoll area and met her busband at Laurier University. Brian was from Hamilton and has been practicing magic since he was 10. They both began doing shows soon after graduating and have now had 12 years in the business. Most of their events are for corporate after dinner entertainments, especially in the Toronto area, but they have toured throughout Canada and in the US. Highlights have included performing as opening acts for Celine Dion and Gordon Lightfoot.
