He has opened for U.S. presidents and performed for others, ranging from Harley riders to children at birthday parties. Ashley has a 14-year background in dance and is known for performing on aerial silks. The Magic of Trino is an illusion act that combines comedy and theater with a backdrop of popular music. He has been featured on major TV networks and was a guest act on the Masters of Illusion tour.

Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Friday, February 1st and Saturday, February 2nd. Tickets are on sale and are $15 for the general public, $10 for students and $5 for NMU students.
