Magic Show Music (Short) – “Here Comes Harry Houdini”

I struggle finding music for my magic show, so I decided to make my own and share it with you. I’ll make many more magic-focused songs in the future. I make short (2.5mins), medium(4.5mins), and long(+6.5mins) songs. This one is a short one for your intro or a fast trick. Feel free to use it for your show, i just ask that you give some credit and maybe share a vid of you using it (I like to see how it is working 🙂 ). I’ll upload a soundcloud link so you can download it for yourself (without the intro I put in this video). Thank you.
