Dale Howard was born in Marshall Texas a small historic town located in the Piney Woods of East Texas. His adoptive father moved the family to Corpus Christi to accept an employment opportunity performing iron work when Dale was 8 years old. Dale grew up listening to the “Great Gentleman” Jim Reeves, watching Captain Kangaroo, and attending Garden Dale Baptist Church. As a young man, Dale was interested in music and magic. 

Mamma (Dale’s grandmother) and his mother would play all of Jim Reeves records, and Dale learned every song by heart at an early age. Jim Reeves was not only a mentor for Dale, but was also his fourth cousin. Other family favorites were George Jones, Conway Twitty, and Merle Haggard just to name a few. Dale sang in the church choir and was awarded Royal Ambassador of the Year. In elementary school, he won First Place in a talent show performing “Dear Uncle Sam”. Dale began playing the guitar when his family moved to Fort Worth, Texas at the age of 16 years old. There he attended Kennedale High School and was the lead singer in a country band named The Pigeons. The band performed for numerous social events including school sponsored Halloween and Christmas parties. 
Dale’s interest in magic began at the age of six when he saw a “Magician Black Stone” episode on Captain Kangaroo. His Christmas wish was answered when Santa brought him a Magic Kit for beginners. Over the years Dale had the opportunity to meet several illusionists including David Copperfield, where he had the pleasure of exchanging tricks of the trade.
