We hired Magic with a Twist for my daughter’s fifth birthday party! We had a blast! The kids were all very happy and excited and really enjoyed the entertainment and the balloons! The balloon art was amazing! Many choices were offered, so each kid could pick what type of ballon art they would like to have. John was funny and entertaining for both the children and adults! I would recommend and hire again ! He was professional, fun and entertaining!Feb 17, 2018Verified
John came well ahead of his scheduled time to setup all his equipment and to avoid delays. He is so funny and thoroughly entertained all the kids with his amazing twisted balloons. He also made sure that no kid was left disappointed. I would definitely recommend him to any parties involving kids.Oct 3, 2017Verified
John was truly amazing to work with. He twisted balloons at an event with 1000 people. All the adults and kids loved him. He was very professional, always responded to me immediately and was so much fun! I highly recommend him!!!Sep 24, 2017Verified
John Winslow had a great show that entertained young children, teens, and adults. He understands that different elements in the audience have varying levels of engagement. Kids loved the magic rope, while adults loved the corny jokes. Balloon twisting was awesome, he made balloons for every child in attendance!Oct 9, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?$150.00 for up to first hour, $100.00 per hour over....$50.00 per half hour. I tell my clients I don't charge for what I do, just the time required to do it! All magic, all balloons, or a combo of both....
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I make sure my clients know up front what my fee is, and if I do go over time, I don't charge extra...I'm usually having too much fun! If I don't have another gig to get to, I take my time and make sure all my kids get a balloon creation, if balloons are part of the show. I follow up with phone call or text to make sure we are on target for the show, usually a day before the event.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus, and School of hard knocks!
