Yelp and their Reviews is a good site to find out about various businesses and read actual user reviews. This works for restaurants, hotels, etc. But somehow their system appears broken when it comes to Entertainers like magicians. I have a yelp business profile and 14 VERY GOOD Reviews from real customers. But somehow their ratings engine has decided to hide these reviews. Thankfully if you really want to, you can read these reviews by clicking on the link at the bottom of their page. But I decided to make a picture and show some of reviews here. Hopefully you can see here how much people enjoy my magic shows... click on picture to see the full text or view them on my web-site

Magic Show at Elks Lodge, Gilroy

About 2 weeks ago, we had the good fortune of performing a full evening of magic at the Elks Lodge in Gilroy. Accompanying me were my 2 good friends - Carlucci and Ken King. All 3 of us have been together at the magic club, IBM Ring 216, San Jose for many, many years. There was walk around magic and a full stage magic show. Carlucci produced his cute rabbit which of course everyone wanted to pet. Ken performed some solid magic incl. the classic Linking Rings. I performed my abbreviated stage show which included some jedi style spoon bending and concluded with my "floating" child illusion. The audience seemed to have a lot of fun and I enjoyed performing with my friends. During my walk around I performed a couple of effects using my iPhone and people loved this. After a very busy July performing many magic shows, I am taking a break in August and focusing on other things. But if you a need a magic show, do call me.

Repeat Magic Shows

So do you see the same magic show if you invite me to your party after you see me at your friend's party? This is a great question and the answer is 'it depends on what you want'. Most magicians including me have many different effects they perform and can change at least 50% of the show quite easily. In fact I know so much magic that I can perform 2 completely different magic shows - with 90% different effects in each show. But that is probably not what people want. They book you because they like you and your show. This means that they may want to see some of the main effects again. So I always ask people a lot of questions when I get booked and then decide what to perform after I find out all the details about the party. I also regularly add new effects to the show and swap out some older effects, so if you have not seen the show for a while you will definitely see new stuff if you book me even if you have seen me before.

This year, Rocky the Racoon is not performing in all my shows. But we have some other new effects. You must see the show to find out what is new :-) Speaking of shows, Spring season has arrived, the weather is getting better and many more people seem to want magic shows at their party. Hopefully I will see you this quarter at one of my shows.
