About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I like to customize my performances for each client. In all my shows I have ways to enhance my performance and make it special for each event. I have many ways to tailor my performance for my clients including customized magic giveaway or making a VIP's face magically appear on a poster as the King and/or Queen of Hearts and allowing them to keep it. I believe in making memories for the people who see me perform not just fooling them with a magic trick. When performing strolling magic I always try to leave a magical souvenir that they will never forget.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

My entertainment puts a smile on peoples faces. I'm not there just to fool them (though the magic accomplishes that as well) but to leave them entertained and happier then when I first met them.

    Brandon
    Brandon did some good close up tricks, but his presentation lacked enthusiasm. His escape show was a bit long and did not hold the attention of the audience.
    Brandon S. Apr 21, 2017

    Charles, I'm sorry you felt that way and wished you'd said something during the evening so that I could have tried to adjust to your expectations. I had most every group I performed for throughout the night asking for my business card so felt that others enjoyed my performances. As for the stage portion of the evening I know the back of the room had a difficult time hearing due to the room layout, background noise from the kitchen, and acoustics. Also, you asked me to do a 15 minute set which is much shorter than most of the stage shows I do so I had to cut out my traditional warm up effects that build my engagement with the audience and just dive into what are traditionally the finales to my performance. Again I regret I didn't live up to your expectations though if you talk to your other members I think you may find their experiences to be very positive.

    Magician and Balloon Art
    Brandon performed a magic show as well as balloon art at my five year olds party. He was punctual, kind, and patient. The children as well as adults were very entertained!

    Brandon.. a true professional and great with kids and adults!
    Brandon recently performed at our company Christmas party for 125 adults and 40 kids and was the hit of the party! I can not recommend him enough. He was great with the kids and adults as we hired him to do walking magic and balloon tying both. Great guy!

    Fu nstilts and balloons
    Brandon Smith entertained our guest, adults and then children on his stilts and with balloons. The people crowed around him to get their picture taken. He was very friendly and interacted with our guest. Both young and old were thrilled with the specialty balloons that he made. I would Highly recommend Brandon.

    Magician, Brando Smith made his Opis Indian River Center debut on March 23rd 2016 to an excited group of spectators. To give you an idea of the audience…Opis Indian River Center is a post-acute, rehab and nursing center in West Melbourne FL. We provide long and short term, physical, speech, and occupational therapies, respite, palliative, hospice, and dementia care. Brandon entertained a full house of Customers ranging from 80 to 103 years old. Needless to say with this population, they are the most critical, and hardest to impress…they’ve seen it all! However, Brandon stood his ground gaining the likes of even the most analytical. I was impressed with Brandon the moment he arrived because he did arrive early and I think that is not only professional but also shows that Brandon takes pride in what he does. Brandon was funny, interactive, and kept the audience’s attention. The magic tricks were ideal for the population, they were not too stark and not too complex. I highly recommend Brandon to entertain your next event, you will be entertained and impressed. We are looking forward to booking Brandon again. Recreation Director Kirk Borde, ADC

    This guy is the REAL DEAL!! Very professional and very friendly! He dressed up in Red, White, and Blue on stilts and handed out 3D glasses for a 4th of July event for us. We have customers still talking about him. If you want a great entertainer, choose this guy!!

    Great experience. The favorite moment of my 5 year old girl birthday party! Brandon is fantastic. Punctual and Professional. The tricks were catered to the age of the kids and the setting. He was prepared. He managed to engage these kinds for a full hour!!! I am talking about over 30 kids. Every parent was amazed at how engaging and funny he was. When I asked at night to my daughter what was her favorite moment on her entire day she said: "When I made a cake with magic" "Mom, next year please call Brandon and ask him to come to my party again" Thank you Brandon!!!

    Brandon was fantastic! We hired him last minute (day of) to come and do 30 minutes of up close magic for our Friendsgiving (about 13 people ages 21+ plus). At first our friends were questioning us getting a magician but once he started everyone was hooked. At first I thought our friends attention span would be max 30 minutes but Brandon ended up going for a full hour without losing attention. He even personalized a trick for my boyfriend which made it even better. Not only that, but he was very professional and great at handling my tipsy friends! I highly recommend Brandon for your next event big or small!

    We hired Brandon for our girls' combined bday party (ages 4&6). The magic show was so much more than expected. Adults and kids alike were drawn in. He was funny, fast-paced, and professional. We had a group of 80 and everyone was on the edge of their chair waiting to see the next trick. His balloon creations are also amazing. Guests are still talking about it two weeks later. Highly recommend!

    Brandon tailored his skills perfectly to our event. His ability to mingle incognito and work in his tricks was outstanding. Some of his tricks blew my mind (I'm still trying to figure out how he did it), and the grand finale was astounding! In addition, his level of professionalism and attention to detail is unmatched. If you're looking for a magician for your event, you've got to hire this guy!

    Thank you for the positive review. You guys made it easy for me to work seamlessly at your event. I appreciate your support and look forward to working with you again in the future.

    Brandon twisted for me at a large community festival and did a FANTASTIC job. He entertained the long line of kids waiting for his balloon creations while on stilts. His presence at the event definitely added some excitement, and our guests had a great time! From a planners perspective, I also want to complement his professionalism. He is very easy to work with, communicates clearly, shows up on time and is generally very pleasant. I can't ask for much more when hiring vendors! : )

    Thank you for having me out. You made it very easy to do my job with a well planned event. I look forward to working with you again in the future.

    Brandon Smith with Magic for Any Occasion put on a fantastic performance for our elementary school. Brandon was very punctual with set up and kept his stage area neat and organized. Brandon is very personable as well as professional. Brandon’s performance was very age appropriate and clean. Brandon uses a good mix of humor to entertain the adults as well as the kids. Anyone booking Magic for Any Occasion will not be disappointed. Although, there was one trick which Brandon was not able to perform – taking my ten dollar bill and giving me a hundred back. Brandon’s response – If I could do that, I would not be here. Brandon is top-notch. Book today.

    Magician brandon Smith was wondeful. The kids and adults just loved him. He arrived on time and did not leave until every child had a animal balloon . I would highly recommend this magician to anyone looking for enjoyment and entertainment. The kids are still talking about him.Thank you Brandon for making my daughter 9th birthday extra special.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I attend annual magician conferences to see what the latest and greatest is in my field. At these I can see the new effects, attend workshops to improve my skills, and network with other performers.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I've performed for customers of all ages and events. I do many corporate engagements throughout the year including awards banquets, trade shows, and holiday parties. I also perform at many private parties like birthdays, weddings, or holiday gatherings. Additionally I've performed to large groups in local theaters or even larger ones at festivals.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Hire a professional with experience. You can always find a cheaper entertainer but you often get what you pay for. Don't let saving $25 or $50 be the difference between a mediocre party and a great one. Find a performer that has repeat clients. Anyone can be hired for an event once; it takes a great performer to get asked back.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
The questions I want to know first is how many people are you expecting, how long are you wanting entertainment for, and is there anyone that you'd like to recognize with a special effect customized for them.
