Forget what you know about illusionists: no cheesy tuxedos, no rabbits to pull out of hats. Brock Gill leads a new generation of edgy, daring illusionists, amazing audiences with his unique stage show, dry wit, and mind-blowing escapes. He will appear at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts on Friday, Feb. 25. While working at a saw mill in 1997, Gill felt that God wanted him to use illusions, escapes, and stunts to bring a message of hope to people. “It didn’t make any sense,” Gill admits, “but I felt like it was what God was calling me to do.”
Gill has shared the stage with many well known speakers, worship leaders, and artists such as Franklin Graham, John Piper, David Nasser, Adrian Rogers, John Bisagno, Relient K, Sonic Flood, Toby Mac, Audio Adrenaline, Third Day, Jaci Velasquez, Pillar, Mercy Me, Casting Crowns, and others.
