I hired Steve for my 45th birthday party and I can tell you it was an amazing experience! The best part was when he walked around to different groups throughout the party performing amazing magic tricks. There were so many tricks that he showed us and I could not understand how he did it. He literally blew our minds! His magic is top notch, rest assured he will not let you down. It was so fun to hear the roar of the crowd as he would perform magic up close and in our face. Every guest commented how great it was and I even had a couple people, including me, following him around from group to group to see more! Steve was able to mix and mingle and become a well talked about addition to the party. I really enjoyed working with him, he was very responsive and always answered my emails or phone calls. We even had a mess up with the address and he did not panic or make me feel nervous in anyway. He made it happen and still arrived on time. I am so glad that I took the plunge and decided to hire him for my birthday party. It is something I will never forget!Oct 21, 2020Verified
We hired Steve for our company event this year which was set on a boat cruise around the marina. We wanted to have a strolling magician who can keep the employees and families entertained throughout the cruise. Steve performed many tricks to many groups that received a lot of applause and surprise faces from the audience who couldn't believe what they were seeing right in front of their eyes. He's really good at his profession, is a great entertainer, and knows how to work the crowd with his many tricks. In addition, Steve was professional and flexible with working with us to accommodate the needs of the company and the event. We would highly recommend him for any event and would definitely hire him again.Sep 9, 2016Verified
Wanted to find a magician to perform at my son’s college graduation party. Was very particular in my needs. Not only did I want someone who would dazzle my guests with tricks that defied explanation, I wanted someone who could identify and establish a connection with this crowd of college aged kids. Steve exceeded my expectations. He mingled with my guests performing magic at close range. Cards, mind tricks, transformations. Even transforming things that were being clenched tightly in the fists of my amazed guests. I know how difficult it is to find the right magician to perform at your event. You can hire Steve with confidence…..The only thing missing is the wand.Jun 24, 2016Verified
We invited Steve Wastell to our home for a combination 30th and 60th Birthday party for an hour show. He responded very quickly when I inquired about his services. Was very friendly and cooperative to work with our party arrangements and what options could be done. Was very pleased with all the before hand arrangements. Day of party he arrived on time and early for set up and to introduce himself and get the feel of the party. He made everyone feel relaxed and very interactive with the crowd. Magic was terrific all the guests afterwards had nothing but good things to say and was surprised for a magician to come to a home gathering what a professional show he had as if we were at the Magic Castle! Would definitely call him back and recommend him to all kinds of functions!Mar 18, 2016Verified
Steve was absolutely FABULOUS!! His magic was completely mind-blowing (he is extremely good) and his personality and showmanship, engaging the audience, was spot on. I would highly recommend hiring Steve as your magician!Jan 15, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?At first glance, it may seem like my pricing is a bit higher than some but like most things, I believe you really do get what you pay for. My pricing is based on an hourly rate for walkaround magic. A show is a little bit more but includes more magic. Travel and day of the week is also a factor but I am always willing to discuss your budget and try to work with you.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I may be old fashioned but I still like to talk on the phone, I think you get a better feel for whom you are dealing with and it helps to get to know you a little so I can tailor my show to your specific needs.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a performing member at the world-famous magic castle. I started performing magic in bars while I was bartending. I was blessed to perform every night for all kind of people, as I honed my craft through trial and error over 20 years in bars and restaurants from the East coast to the West.
