Magic shows in new school season

Well summer vacation 2014 is over and schools are back in session soon. I have had some magic shows and some vacation as well. Now I am back to doing shows and available on weekends as before.

Here are a few tips if you are considering hiring a magician for your child's birthday party:
  • Focus on quality - not quantity. There are many magicians and many styles and many prices too. What you want to stay focused on in the best possible show you can get - after all you do not do this everyday
  • Plan well in advance - I have started offering a discount for people who book early. I think this is well deserved.
  • Make sure you let people attending the party know what time the magic show is planned. I have been to many parties where I am the first one to show up :)
  • Try and watch the show yourself - this will let the other guests know that this is an important event. It is very hard for a magician to perform when people are chatting loudly about what stocks to buy.
  • Enjoy and have fun - take some pictures - so you can save the memories !
Hope to see you at one my upcoming magic shows. Do stop by and say hello.

Full review of my Illusion show from a real customer last weekend

Instead of me describing my show, let me allow a customer to describe the show in her own words:
We invited Vijay to perform at my daughter's 10th birthday party where we had about 35 people attending including adults and kids, all the way from kindergarten through 8th grade. Vijay put on a fantastic show for all that were present and it turned out to be simply a wonderful evening !
Grownups and kids alike were all kept entertained, engaged and excited about the next magic trick that was about to unravel before them…whether it was cards…lights….soda…bent spoons...or rabbits….and finally culminating with my daughter - the birthday girl - levitating in mid-air !!
Vijay is a great entertainer/performer and kept the show extremely interactive, calling upon kids individually to come up in front of the audience to help perform the next act. The Birthday Chronicle that he custom compiles specifically based on the birthdate of your child is a unique keepsake, outlining special news events that happened on that day.
Thank you Vijay for making my daughter's birthday this year such a memorable one for us !
Hope you enjoyed this review. Read many more here:
I am doing many magic shows this summer - I do hope we get a chance to meet at one of my shows. If you have any questions about the show, do email me at

Magic shows for mixed age groups

How do you do a magic show where we have kids of different age groups and also adults watching? This is a great question and it is something I have to deal with often when I do magic for a first birthday party or an adult celebration for a key milestone birthday or special anniversary, etc. The answer is to have something for everyone. I usually start every show by explaining why magic works - yes, you have to see my show to know what this means. This is of course interesting for everyone. This is followed by a few effects that will amaze young and old. Only then I go into effects for younger kids but then I return to some effects for older kids and adults like when I bend solid spoons with my mind or predict something they have just thought of.

In short, if you watch my show, you will see that people of all age groups are engaged and they all love to watch a live magic show and be entertained and amazed. Let me end with a couple of actual customer quotes related to this:

"We had Vijay perform at our daughter's Birthday yesterday and to our surprise he had captured attention of kids and adults alike for the next 45 mins...."

"Vijay is really amazing, kids and adults enjoyed the show equally. It was a very memorable birthday party. This was our second time to have Vijay for a birthday party. I will highly recommend Vijay for fun filled birthday parties"

I look forward to meeting you at one of my magic shows this summer - 2014.
