About this pro

How does your service stand out?

My work stands out because i am very good at what i do. Unfortunately there are, from what customers tell me, a lot of people out there who call themselves magicians who are not that good. So this leaves a bad taste in their mouth for the next magician. The customer, if unsure, should ask to meet for a demonstration from the magician.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

What i love about my job is everything. You get to learn things that are not know to the general public. The reactions i get from people while performing is priceless. If the reactions were money i'd be set for life. I love bringing back that sense of wonder to the audience. I love doing street magic for a few reasons. A couple of them are when someone comes up to me and say things like "my son/daughter saw you last year and they still talk about you" and most recently someone said to 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. :-)

    Jeff was a very good magician - the kids and adults alike were impressed with his tricks and skills! There were 23 kids at our party, ranging in age from 3 to 9 and they were all engaged with Jeff's show from the moment it began until the end. He was funny and handled the crowd well, even the occasional child blurting out comments about what he was doing. He was professional and courteous. He stayed a little after to make balloon animals as well and that was a nice added bonus. Overall, 5 star rating and I would recommend him to anyone.

    He did a great job doing magic for a group of 4-8 yr olds. He was on time, entertaining for the kids and adults and everyone had fun. He even did balloon animals for us and stayed well after his expected time to show us more tricks and show my son, who is interested in magic, some of his tricks and secrets. I would highly recommend him!

    Jeff was outstanding. We used him for a church banquet. It is great for all ages. I would for sure think of him for my next family event.

    I hired Jeff for my husbands 30th birthday party and couldn't have been more pleased with the performance. He adjusted so well to the rowdy bunch and the magic was great. Two thumbs up!

    He was absolutely great! Loved his show. Not only did the children enjoyed it but the adults did as well. Very personable person. I would most definitely hire him again and recommend him to anyone looking for a magician. My favorite event in my party by far.

    Overall Jeff did a fantastic job! People were entertained. The magic was excellent with lots of humor mixed in. He was on time and stayed around longer than he was scheduled to. He is very personable and everyone enjoyed talking with him.

    Jeff performed last night for our adult/child costume party. He came right on time ready to go and performed many different (and impossible to figure out) tricks. The kids LOVED it! He continued with a hypnosis demonstar

    I've known Jeff for about 20 years. He's one of a kind. He can play guitar just as good as his magic. I trust him more than anyone I've met. He has a great childlike view of life that's really cool. So when you get him to do a magic show sneek in a guitar and get him to play a song too!

    i was walking down the street with my friends and he was handing out cards. next thing you know he ask us if we wanted to see a trick and of course we said yes. so it was the best 10 to 30 of minutes of my life. this man was only doing a couple of tricks and it lasted long. he is friendly funny and good with kids . i should know becuz im one.

    It was my pleasure to make your day. And sometimes they say teenagers are the hardest to perform for. Lol

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
New magic effects(tricks) are coming out all the time. So i am constantly learning one thing or another. The learning process literally never stops. Thats one thing i love about my job is that it is always evolving in one way or another
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have been in love with sleight of hand and magic for my whole life. I read those corny library books on how to do tricks as a child, but knew not where to learn more. When i was 34 a magic shop opened up in the next town over. So i got some tricks and started from there. They closed down due to not many magician in the area. Thats when i had discovered that i could learn on line and i havent looked back since.
What types of customers have you worked with?
The most common types of jobs i get are birthday parties for all ages, young and old. And in the fall retirement communities call on me to do their holiday events, mainly halloween. I love those jobs because you get every age group during those shows. Although, i do all events and occations. I did a chili cook off once. I also do wedding receptions, communioun parties bar and bat mitzfas ,and many more places. I recently began adding music to my show.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I'm proud of all the jobs I do.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
If you are unsure about a magician or other performer, ask for a demonstration. It couldn't hurt. That way you have an idea of what to expect and also know the quality of the performer.
