Bob was great! He came early to set up and was flexible about doing 2 shows. His magic was completely appropriate for elementary aged students and their families. He even used the school principal in one of his tricks! I would 100 percent recommend him for your party or community event!Mar 31, 2018Verified
Bob and Kathy were awesome! They came to the house early to set everything up and meet the birthday boy. They were very flexible with the start time as kids were coming in a bit late. They stayed a total of almost 3 hours to ensure each child had a balloon animal. Wonderful people!!!!Nov 12, 2017Verified

Bob and his wife hosted a magic show for my sons 7th Birthday party this weekend. They did an amazing job, all of the children loved the show, they would not stop talking about it all night ! They were very satisfied which made me satisfied. They took their time and really cared to make sure the kids got the most out of the experience! I would highly recommend using them for your next event !Nov 14, 2016Verified

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Constant training. A magician's life is filled with trade journals, books and lectures by other magicians from around the country. You never stop learning and you would never want to. Most folks don't realize the huge investment in time, money and study that builds the career of a full time magician. The study involves hundreds of books, DVDs and live lectures by the dozens. Then there's endless practice and rehearsal. Props and tools are also a significant part of a magician's investment in his career choice. The monetary investment climbs through the thousands. The training never ends.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?After many years as a Boston radio personality, waking listeners up in the morning at WROL and WEZE, the changing nature of broadcasting caused me to re-evaluate my future. The pressures and multi-tasking that had become a daily experience were negatively affecting my health. For years I had been pursuing magic at the professional level and had planned to make this my transition career. The time had finally come. As a Life Member of the Society of American Magicians and an officer in the Salem Massachusetts Assembly 104, the transition was a pleasant one. Best of all, the decades of working in radio as a host, chief interviewer and conduit with the public and clients that had been the most enjoyable part of my career, has been replaced with the even more rewarding honor of entertaining them in their homes.
- What types of customers have you worked with?For the most part, I'm a family entertainer, specializing in birthday parties for children of all ages, particularly from four to twelve. I love the kids. They are the greatest audience in the world. It's a genuine pleasure to entertain them and then to see them enjoying the balloon animals my wife makes for them at our weekend parties. While I occasionally perform at adult clubs and parties, my life is family parties centered around children. I keep my close up magic skills honed by performing walk around magic for the grown-ups after entertaining the children. I specialize in children's birthdays, first birthday celebrations, day care events, Scouting, First Communion, YMCA events, Synagogue events, schools and holiday parties. My wife and I have done My Little Pony parties, Frozen parties, Despicable Me parties and more, with children from every culture. Indian parties are a particular favorite.
