Operating out of Washburn Studio, DJ Chucky Brown of The Art of DJing trains his students when to rock the party and when to recognize that the party is happening inside a lifeboat. “You throw bait out,” he says, recognizing that different crowds, such as indie dance rock and Top 40 audiences, require different tunes. “If you start with Azari and nothing happens, throw out some Datarock or LCD Soundsystem; or if you start with Daft Punk, then throw out some Usher, Calvin Harris, or Madonna.” Brown imparts this encyclopedic knowledge of music in private, small-group, and large-scale classes, where his charges learn how to mix, scratch, and reinvent on the fly. On Brown’s student mixes page, visitors can listen to mash-ups and mixtapes created by his former pupils. The DJ has even performed for several of the artists sampled by his students and himself, having spun at events thrown by Elton John, Missy Elliot, and Justin Timberlake.

The Three Faces of Marrakech Magic Theater

Peter Morrison

Peter Morrison is the consummate performer. He's charismatic and charming, and his witty, but clean comedy makes his magic show something the whole family can enjoy. Peter's passion for magic shines through during his 75-minute shows, where, donned in a tuxedo, he performs everything from sleight-of-hand card tricks to cutting-edge illusions that leave viewers scratching their heads.

Pre-Show in Sultan's Oasis

The doors to Marrakech Magic Theater open one hour prior to every show. During this time, guests are invited to gather for cocktails and appetizers inside the Moroccan-style Sultan's Oasis lounge. But this isn't just any pre-show gathering—Peter visits with every group, getting to know his guests by name and performing magic tricks up-close-and-personal. It's a rare case of a performer doubling as his opening act, and it starts the evening on a friendly note.

Intimate Parlor-Style Theater

The theater’s intimate 45-person setup means there's not a bad seat in the house, placing all attendees mere feet from the stage. Subtle touches throughout make visits all the more enjoyable, starting with a candlelit entryway and continuing into the ornate, red-colored lounge. The elegant design might have you assuming the theater has been that way for decades, but think again: Peter did it all himself, right down to the chandeliers.
