About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I have entertained thousands of children over the past 14 years, so I know what kids love, and as a parent of 5 children myself, I also know what parents are looking for, too--a fun, personable performer, and a no-hassle, worry-free experience. Plus, they want an amazing lifetime memory for their son or daughter, which I guarantee to provide! In addition to magic, my shows also include puppets and live animals! More info: I have lots of extras! Some of my packages include great goodie bags for all of the party attendees (great time and money saver)! I also do magic workshops where I teach the kids magic, and I have themed shows for daycares and preschools. For example, my Frosty the Snowman show includes an 8 foot Frosty the Snowman, plus an indoor snowstorm!

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Entertaining kids. You never know what they're going to say, so they entertain me as much as I entertain them.

    This was the least stressful birthday party! Everyone had fun! We booked the deluxe package for my son's 7th birthday party. Xakary entertained the kids and grown ups. He made the whole event memorable. Thank you Xakary!

    Another fantastic performance!
    It was a great show, with fresh material (since we'd hired him last year too), and the kids loved the rabbit. He was on time, set up and tore down quickly, and stayed later so that kids could see the rabbit in the church hallway after the Arrow of Light ceremony.

    Xakary was fantastic! His show is not only magical but interactive. He drew a great crowd for the Auburn Int'l Farmers Market and was great to work with. He also stepped in a filled the stage when our musician canceled at the last minute. Xakary was prepared, professional, and put on a fantastic show! Thanks so much for being a part of the Market!

    Only suggestion is not to give the birthday boy the magic wand early in the show. We lost him after that :). Awesome overall.

    Xakary was fantastic with my residents! It was his first show for a group of seniors but you wouldn't have known it. So much energy was put into the performance and my residents were laughing and entertained the whole time!

    Working with Xakary was great! He was very prompt with his communications as well as arriving for our scheduled party/show. The kids (as well as the adults) enjoyed the show. The two biggest highlights were: The bunny (Harry) and having the birthday girl 'float' illusion. Both were fantastic! We only wished that there could have been more magic tricks as part of the show. We did pay for the deluxe party where Xakary brought all of the gift bags for each kid too. Well worth it! Thanks.

    Xakary the Magician made my daughters 6th birthday a magical and fantastic event and a life-long memory! He was so engaging and fun. He arrived on time and quickly set up his impressive backdrop and props that encircled the group of friends and the birthday girl and just drew them (and us parents) all into this amazing hour long experience. It was so much fun! Xakary kept the kids involved and laughing and shouting for a full hour! He moves easily through his routine and into teaching the kids a really cool magic trick that they could follow and perform right away! It was so much fun watching my daughter and all of her friends laughing and interacting with Xakary and having the time of their lives! Bring your video cameras and a stand because filming Xakary while laughing so much can be a challenge!

    Best magician for kids. The group of 25 kids loved. Xackery arrived on time, was well prepared, and was great with all the kids. Highly recommended.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I regularly attend magic conventions, purchase magic training materials, and attend marketing workshops.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Birthday Party magic shows for ages 4-9, Magic Workshops for ages 7-10, Cub Scout Blue & Gold events, Family Fun Magic Shows for group events, schools and churches, and Wedding Receptions (I entertain the kids while the adults visit). In addition, I have special illusions available for corporate and group events, like making the president of the company (or Santa, or ...) magically appear, or sawing an audience member in half! No extra charge to put them back together! I can also customize my show to meet your theme!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Don't just look for the cheapest magician. The old adage, "you get what you pay for" definitely applies. While my shows are not the cheapest, you can be assured that you are getting someone who really knows how to entertain kids, and make your special event an event they will remember for a lifetime: "Remember when we had that really funny magician at my 7th birthday party? That was great!". Look for a seasoned professional, and for children's parties, one who specializes in kids. Look for professional affiliations, like IBM and Kidabra, which mean that the magician abides by the organization's code of ethics.
