    Steven the Magician
    Steven the Magician performed for our son's birthday party. I was nervous initially when he seemed a bit stresses with the noise level of the kids, but then he captured the kids attention/interest and the show was very good.

    Steven the Magician was totally magical!!
    O M G, Steven the Magician was absolutely spell binding!! For my party of 40 adults, ages 40-85, EVERYone was totally enchanted. He was good looking, charming, entertaining, included participation of the audience & the hour was over before we knew it. A very memorable evening indeed.

    He did a job well done. He was a big hit with the guests and will be using him again in the future.

    Santa Steve was beyond incredible. We had a family and friends Chritmas gathering in our home for 160 adults with only 8 children on hand (ages 2 - 16). Santa Steve was AWESOME with the children no matter what age. He also spent time recognizing my brother-in-law who was celebrating his 60th birthday. Santa lead the party goers in Christmas carols and our guests could not believe we had THE REAL SANTA at our party! At first blush Santa Steve may seem an extravagant expense for an appearance, but he is well worth it, as he's the real deal!!!!!!

    Santa Steve was very jolly and you can tell he is a talented actor. The kids had a great time! He was booked so solidly that he was not there at the allotted time. The kids were getting antsy and we couldn't hold them off. We went ahead with eating and unwrapping presents. While I understand he had a lot of places to visit, he could have been a little more accurate on his arrival time. He told me 6-6:30 and didn't get there until 7:15.

    This Santa came to help make my niece's holiday celebration in the hospital special! He sang, he cracked jokes, he was just funny..we've hired a lot of Santas and he was the family favorite..so we might have found our Santa!

    I took my granddaughters to see Santa Steve and they were memorized. They all agreed, they had finally met the real Santa.

    Santa Steve's visit to my grandkid last November was something they will never forget. They are already asking if I think "Santa" will come to grandma's house this year
