What's Happening in Ocean City, NJ 1/31/17
Ocean City’s box office opens on Wednesday (Feb. 1), and one of the most anticipated shows is also one of the most unlikely: a 14-year NFL veteran performing magic.
Philadelphia Eagles long-snapper Jon Dorenbos will share his mind-blowing magic talents in a single show at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 13, on the Ocean City Music Pier.
The world discovered Dorenbos during his run to the top of the NBC television competition “America’s Got Talent.” (See video of his performance in the finals.) He placed third overall in the contest after surviving many elimination rounds.
Dorenbos says magic saved his life, and he has a story to back it up. When he was 12 years old, his father murdered his mother. He openly shares this childhood tragedy with audiences in an inspirational show about rising through adversity, setting goals no matter how high, and planning the necessary steps to achieve those goals.
