Son's 5 year birthday party

Russ performed for about 15 kids for our son's birthday party, and both the kids and the parents raved about him. He was prompt, fast in setting up, performed for a full hour and kept everyone's attention! I highly recommend him.

Everyone loved him!!!

We hired Mr. Hocus Pocus for a Reading Reward party. He performed to approximately 400 students. First he did a small group with some children who had just studied a magic unit. Then he did two magic shows, one for the younger students and one for the older students. Both shows were appropriate for the audiences. He was not only entertaining for the students he made all the teachers laugh also. It was definitely a great value for our money. I would recommend him to anyone.

Fantastic Show!

Magician Russ was wonderful! He performed for my son's Cub Scout Blue & Gold Banquet. We had over 50 kids and they were mesmerized! Magician Russ is very talented. He kept kids AND parents engaged for the entire show. It was a lot of fun.
He was professional from the first phone call until we wrapped up. His rates are very reasonable.
I will definitely use him again & recommend him to others. Fantastic!

Mr. Ross, got to the party long in advance to be fully prepared and to know what else was going on so he could help us direct the children. He adapted the show to the age of the audience and was very respectful of the children likes. Adults also enjoyed the show. I highly recommend Magician Russ Nowack. We will hire him again and recommend him to all of our friends.

Happy Kids, Happy Parents

I used Mr. Hocus Pocus (Russ Nowack) for my son's 5th birthday party and he was perfect! I had 25 kids ranging from 2 to 10 and they all loved the show. He did a really good job of keeping the kids entertained and I had many parents tell me that their children loved it and that many want to be magicians when they grow up now. Russ also traveled 50 miles to my home in Nashville from his home in Clarksville and did not charge me extra. I highly, highly recommend him. Thanks, Russ, for a great show!

The magical shows of Russ Nowack: A Magical Hit!

I hired Russ to entertain at my son's 7th birthday, and I'm so glad I did! Russ's show was truly a magical hit, not only for the birthday boy, but for all his guests of all ages...from 3yrs to teens. The kids were in awe, and the parents laughed just as much. Russ has a wonderful talent for entertaining the kids, involving them in his shows and making their faces just light up. He also includes the adults, leaving everyone with a smile and an afternoon of magical moments to remember. Russ was so much fun to have and extremely professional and great to work with, willing to be flexible to whatever time and place he was needed, even at last minute calls. Having never actually hosted and planned out any of my son's birthdays, (leaving it up to chuck e cheese), I was nervous how things would turn out, and wondered if the kids might be to old for a magician, but looking back, I wouldn't have changed a thing. After the show, the kids continued to pretend to do magic themselves and the parents all commented on how wonderful he was. We even immediately asked him to do a show for our local boy scout den at our next advancement ceremony. Russ, we thank you for doing such a wonderful job and hope to see you at many events in the future!

Perfect for Parties

Mr. Nowack performed for my daughter's tenth birthday party. The children in attendance ranged from age three to sixteen and were all thrilled and thoroughly entertained. The adults were amazed and laughing just as hard as the kids. Mr. Nowack immediately establishes a great rapport with the audience, and his show is good, clean, family fun. Everyone was very impressed with his skill, timing, and professionalism. His rate is more than reasonable. This party will certainly stand out as one of the best we have ever given.

I scheduled Mr. Nowack to entertain my Extended Care children for the holiday season. Mr. Nowack came through with "flying colors"... (scarf trick)! He was a comical delight as well as an excellent magician. He was
most communicative and professional in the planning and scheduling of the event. Mr. Nowack was also a reasonable price for his services. I would hire him again in a heartbeat!

I wanted to let you know we had TONS of fun watching your magic show. My son and his friends are still talking about all the cool magic tricks you performed. You stumped me with the rope trick and I was right there helping you. You are AWESOME at what you do. All of the parents asked me for your card, so I hope to maybe see you again. My oldest is even asking if you can come back in March for his birthday. Thank you again for all the fun. You really made his birthday great. I don't know how I'm going to out do his party next year.

Thank You Russ!!!

I would just like to say thank you very vey much for putting the icing on the cake during my two sons birthday! They were so happy and even the next following school day, the kids in school were bragging about how awesome my sons' birthday was. The kids very much enjoyed your Magic show and the balloons you provided. The adults were also very amused and as you noticed most the parents were trying to get a calling card from you. That last minute booking I asked for, thank you sooo much for fitting me in your buisy schedule. Godbless!, From the Presto Family

And with the majority of the children being under the age of 6, that wasn't an easy task to do. My son said this was the best birthday he has ever had!

An Amazing Entertainer!!

I have worked with Mr. Nowack on three separate occasions now and he has blown us away at each one of the events. Russ goes above and beyond to make the experiences memorable for everyone involved. He has performed for the last two years at our Cub Scout Pack Blue & Gold Banquet and he succeeded in not only entertaining the scouts & siblings but in also keeping them focused and interested in his show--not an easy thing to do with 75+ squirmy children! Russ recently performed during our school's Fall Fest and we heard nothing but praise from the kids and parents that attended the shows. He had a full auditorium (twice in one night!) and all we heard during the shows were "ohhhhh's", "ahhhhh's" and lots of laughter from the audience. Russ involved the kids in the show and made it a wonderful event for all involved. Russ is friendly, professional, and very reliable. I know once I've got him booked that I can relax because he has it covered. Book him today!!

Overview

My children's Hocus Pocus Magic Show is approximately 45 minutes long ( closer to an hour with balloon animal twisting) and is filled with comedy, magic, and balloon animals; unquestionable fun family entertainment for adults as well as children. All that I require is a spot to perform that puts me center stage. (It’s best to be in an area with a wall behind me if possible, most any living room, bonus room or similar area is usually just great) My show is packed in a rolling table/box which allows me to set up in just a few minutes. Lastly, I also require that the show is to be performed indoors.

The show is high energy and incorporates a lot of audience participation. Some parents as well as children will get to help out as my assistants . For my children's shows, the theme of the magic is geared towards the age of the children but the parents will certainly find the sleight of hand to be entertaining as well. I recommend that the majority of the children be at least 4 yrs old in order to fully appreciate the impact of the performance.

Large stage shows are also available, as well as Scout banquets, corporate parties, church gatherings, school events and festivals!

Experience Magician Russ Nowack's jaw-dropping, award winning Magic with an intimate Close-up Magic Show, recommended for ages 15 and older . Strolling Close-up Magic and/or Balloon Animal Twisting is available as well
