Want to know a little bit more about Dan and Danny? Well, we can’t give away too much but here is a little background on what led our men of magic to the Vail Valley and table-side at the Chophouse.

Danny Archer

Though you would never guess it, Archer got a late start at the world of magic. Originally it served as just a hobby Danny took up after meeting a magician while working at a tuxedo shop. However, just as he started his foray in to the trade, at age 39, Danny suffered a serious heart attack. The brush with death brought clarity and new perspective to Archer, and led him to make a significant change in his lifestyle. Danny quit his job and took up magic full time and has never looked back.

Since that day Archer has performed all over the world to audiences large and small; in fact he took a small break from the Chophouse this summer to do exactly that.  

However, we are thrilhe is back and ready to start another winter season at the Chophouse restaurant locations. Danny’s table-side entertainment has become a staple of the Chophouse dining experience and keeps guests coming back night after night and year after year.  

Dan Fleshman

A transplant to the Valley from St. Louis, Missouri, Dan adds a different twist to the table-side magic combo and has quickly become a valued member of the Chophouse team!

Working as a writer, producer, speaker and instructor in the industry throughout his time performing, Fleshman has done a little bit of everything and the broad base of experience is overly apparent in his magic. Over his 35 years of experience performing throughout the country, and around the world, Dan has perfected a wide array of mind-boggling tricks, creating a performance not to be missed!
