Introduction: My work stands out because I am very good at what I do. I make great connections and lasting memories. From time to time I get people coming up to me telling me about something I showed them years ago, when performing magic. Those are great moments. To be remembered like that is such an honor. Doing street magic is a great way to hone your skills and be a testing ground for new tricks, as well as an immense amount of practice time. I am also a balloon twister. Creating something out of nothing is imaginative and fun. I love watching things take shape as I'm twisting the balloons. Another thing I do is officiate wedding ceremonies. When working with a couple, I take the time to ensure that the ceremony is exactly how they want it to go. Do you want to go with doing your own vows, traditional or non traditional? I can help you figure it out, if needed. I try to be very easy to work with. After all, who wants to work with a headache, right? My work ethic is very strong. If I were to hire someone to entertain at one of my events, I would expect certain things out of them. To be good at what they do, to be entertaining, and to be worth what I paid, just to name a few. I do my best to give you everything that I would expect, and more. And that is why my work stands out. There is a reason 99% of my reviews are 5 star. What I love about my job is everything. You get to learn things that are not know to the general public, when it comes to the art of magic. The reactions I get from people while performing is priceless. I love bringing back that sense of wonder to the audience. I do street magic in Northampton, MA. I love doing street magic for a few reasons. A couple of them are when someone comes up to me and mentions a trick I showed them years back, in full detail. Another great one is when someone told me "my kids saw you last night. They made me buy some spongeballs and they spent the night and today pretending they were you". Doesn't get much better then that. Doing "tricks" is only part of being a magician. The greater part, and the real magic, is in connecting with people and making memories. Along the line of creating connections and making memories, is officiating weddings. I am honored that people choose me to help make their special day even more special. I take that job very serious.

Balloon Twisting

AMAZING!!! Jeff was outstanding! I hired him for a family and friends cookout on August 25,2018 he kept the kids and the adults entertained with his magic abilities. I was busy hosting, but the feed back I received from everyone was AMAZING!! that is the word my granddaughter used. Before Jeff left he twisted balloons and that really topped off the party for the kids. I would DEFINETLY HIRE HIM AGAIN. Jeff was so polite, that when his time was up, he was still doing magic for the adults. Today is Tuesday August 28th and I am still hearing about Jeff and his magic. HIRE HIM FOR YOUR EVENT YOU WONT REGRET IT HE TURNED A NON BELIEVER INTO A BELIEVER!!!! Thank you again Jeff for EVERYTHING

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Entertainers don't generally give discounts. I have set prices. I do have different prices set aside for certain events/venues. I will travel anywhere for a show. My price does go up after :45 minutes of travel. I am, however, very fair with my pricing. According to the internet, my pricing is about $50 or so under average. I could raise my prices to match the average. But I understand that people work hard for their money and bills keep coming in, so I try to be affordable.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Typically, we exchange phone numbers. I find out their exact needs. I ask for a deposit. Then we go forward accordingly.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    There are many books, DVDs and downloads for magic. There are also magic shops. If there isn't a local one, you can find them online. One thing a lot of people don't realize, learning magic can be expensive. The average cost of a magic DVD is $35. Magic props cost anywhere from $5 for small items up to thousands of dollars. Typically a good prop, for what I do, costs $50 to $250. And that cost is for 2 to 6 minutes worth of entertainment each.
