    Jeff kept the attention of my 6 very active grandsons--1 ADHD--The adults and kids enjoyed his wonderful magic show. Jeff involved every child and even some adults,, and we were all mystified by his tricks. The adults and kids were all saying, "How did he do that??" The adults watched the faces of the kids after each trick. It was so funny--lots of laughs. We all had a wonderful and very enjoyable evening with Jeff and would highly recommend him for adults or children or both as we did here last night. I think that his price is very reasonable also. A wonderful experience.

About this pro

My work stands out because I am very good at what I do. I make great connections and lasting memories. I often do street magic in Northampton MA. From time to time I get people coming up to me telling me about something I showed them years ago. 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 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. 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.

    Q & A

    • 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.
