I'm an event planner located in South Beach and was planning a Sweet 16 Masquerade party that would take place in New York, NY and I needed a reliable company like Magical Memories Entertainment (MME) to book a photo booth and eventually a magician for the event. My initial contact was with Steven and then with Kara, whose communication was great and personable. She answered all of my questions and explained in detail all of the features of the photo booth, as well as, created a package outlining the different acts the magician offered that she felt would be age appropriate. Sadly, less than a week before the event my client canceled the party, for reasons unknown? Kara was very understanding and remained helpful. I HIGHLY recommend MME and will DEFINITELY do business with them again!

We hired Sandy for my grand daughter's 5th birthday party and it was a huge success. After all, how often do you find a face-painting, balloon-sculpting magician all in one person? Sandy began by making all 11 children look beautiful with their Shopkins themed faces. She then created some of the most amazing balloon animals I had ever seen, and they were delighted. And for the grand finale, she had them on the edge of their seats for the magic show as the parents listened to their children oohing and ahing. My grand daughter was delighted and I would hire Sandy again in a flash. I couldn't thank her enough for the great performance.

Alex was amazing and very entertaining. I hired Alex for my grandsons bday and the kids and adults all enjoyed his show. I know the audience liked being asked to participatate. He was able to keep a group of children ages 2-10 attention through the whole show. The kids really liked the pets he brought especially Pipsqueak the hamster. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone thinking about a magician for a party or event.

It was a total joy!!! The kids were so so interested in everythiong Alex did and I myself was surprised on the magic he proformed. It was worth more than I paid for the experience and having the kids sit quite for one hour- which I thought would be impossible. You will not be disappointed. Great job Alex!

I am writing to recommend Amazing Events as I have now used their services 4 times to enhance my parties. At each event décor and entertainment were provided to enrich our atmosphere and guest enjoyment. Marty is extremely professional and passionate about event planning and décor. His many years of experience and talent lead to help guide me to a stress free and beautiful event. Marty provided inviting balloon décor in ways of arches, centerpieces and Balloon dance floor enhancements. His decoration using Balloons were the perfect touches to the many Sweet 16’s hosted as well as for my wedding. The balloon features were interesting and all of my guests loved how different and fun as they transformed the spaces. On top of providing the décor for my events Marty went above and beyond to entertain our guests throughout the party. He is vibrant and enthusiastic about what he does and truly takes pride in his work. Marty entertained my family and friends performing magic at my events, where my guests of all ages were intrigued and amused at his act. His performances were the perfect touches to make my parties stand out and ensure everyone was having a great time. Having used Amazing Events for multiple parties I love to recommend their services to family and friends. Marty controlled all décor for my events and made me feel comfortable and confident knowing he was handling it all. I can imagine my parties without his magic acts and balloon décor, and I look forward to using Amazing Events in the future. If you are looking for a company that goes above and beyond in décor and entertainment, I highly recommend hiring Amazing Events for your next occasion.

July 31, 2015 my niece was married in our backyard. We had 80+ guests. Marty was invaluable in walking us through the planning process. With his experience in wedding planning, he guided us through the pitfalls of omission and commission. With his extensive contacts he is able to provide all services necessary for a successful event. He was mindful of our budget and worked with us achieve the event we envisioned. We used friends and family for some services, such as tent, tables and chair rentals. We had our own people for Bar Service and used Marty's contact for all other catering and waitstaff. Marty coordinated all aspects of the event. On the day of the wedding, Marty and his assistant were there an hour before the guests arrived until the party was over My wife and I enjoyed the party with our guests, while Marty oversaw EVERYTHING, and took care of all glitches and kept us on schedule.Lastly, Marty is a Magician.Not just as to his planning skills, but he performs sleight of hand tricks. During the party, Marty went from table to table and astounded and amused the children and the adults with his magic tricks. All in all, it was an Amazing Event.

Hubba Bubba Magic performed at my son's 10th birthday and it was a hit not only the kids but the parents too. He is so accommodating and flexible. Thank you so much. The kids had a ball and I have been hearing from the parents that they went home and did a show. And tried some tricks of their own. We gave out magician hats with magic tricks favors. It was an amazing show. He does an excellent job. Highly recommended.

I was in n.y. And wanted to do something special for my niece on her birthday. Someone suggested, Jo Jo party pals. I hiired Joanne (Jo Jo ) party pals I called and book her. She not only showed up early and set up by the time the party was to start... She was more than I excepted. Not only was she great with the kids. She was wonderful. The kids loved her. Her face painting was wonderful. It was amazing. Her ballon animals were, nothing I've seen before. She could make all the balloons the kids ask for. We had a wonderful time having her at my nieces birthday. And would suggest her to anyone who had kids. My niece had the best birthday!!!! And Jo Jo was a big part of her happiness.... I highly recommend her.

I am a preschool teacher and we celebrated the birthday of twin students with a surprise guest. JoJo's Party Pals was such a treat. She had the whole class and teachers laughing. Her show is one that keeps the children entertained and excited for the next surprise! She incorporates little treats and stickers for all the children throughout her show which really made the class happy. I appreciated her talent because this show was for a set of twins and they were brother and sister. She was able to do each part of the show for the both of them with personalized gifts making it a really special day. The kids still ask when JoJo is coming back... She left her mark at our school! :)

She was unbelievable. The kids had such a great time... They laughed and laughed. I was a little skeptical of how much they would enjoy it... And boy was I wrong. The kids didn't stop laughing and her magic tricks were awesome. She brought stickers and little prizes for all the kids and the surprise at the end of the show was really super cute. Not only great magic tricks and jokes but photo opportunities as well. It was incredible. I would hire her again tomorrow.

I met Bryan many years ago through his magic show performances at my childrens school. He truly is an amazing magician; he is able to keep the attention of both young and old. Recently I asked Bryan to perform at my family's reunion, it was quite a show. One of the tricks he performed required audience participation; at my urging, my sister and her boyfriend sheepishly volunteered...my sister now has a fiance! Bryan worked his magic as Phil pulled an engagement ring out of the magic bag, dropped to one knee and proposed to my sister Georgeanne. Throught the thunderous applause, she said yes! Bryan does wonderful magic. I would recommended his services to anyone looking for entertainment with a little extra pazazz! Thank you, Bryan, for all you do to make us smile.

I use Paul at least twice or more every year at my Library. He brings laughter and bubbles to our annual "Beach Party" ending to Summer Reading as well as providing comedy and balloons during the summer. The children enjoy his interactive and hilarious antics during his hour long program. Always on time, very professional and fun to work with. A must if you want quality entertainment!

We hired Matt The Balloon Man for our daughter's birthday party. He did his magic show, then balloon twisting for 20 kids. To say he was amazing would be an understatement! His show was perfect and he was able to make anything the kids asked for with his balloons. I would STRONGLY recommend that you hire Matt for your party!

Ben's magic services are top notch. His professionalism and exceptional communication make him seem like he's been doing this for 40 years. If there's any occasion I need entertainment, my family begs me to call Ben, and they continue talking about him weeks after the event passes. In addition to his skill as a magician, his lovable personality make him stand out from the rest. Highly reccomended!!

Sophisticated sleight-of-hand for all occasions: holiday parties, birthdays and benefits, receptions and corporate events. Kids shows, too. Close-up magic involves people like no other entertainment. Impossibilities happen, not on a distant stage, but inches away, and often in the hands of your guests. And since it can be performed completely surrounded, strolling or table-side, close-up magic blends in perfectly at all festive occasions. No boxes, no bunnies; just pure astonishment that you and your guests will long remember.
