Master Illusionist Brian Reaves provides professional illusions for your corporate, school, or church functions, private parties, trade show booth, wedding receptions, or any other gatherings. Brian has been awarded Birmingham "Magician of the Year" three times, "Close-Up Champion 2016" of the WCM, and was the opening speaker of TedxBirmingham 2017.
Brian is also an accomplished motivational speaker and trainer, using magic to help illustrate his presentation to make the message relevant and memorable. Brian can customize his presentation to include your company's logo or brand if possible and can work with you to create the exact message you are wanting to get across to your attendees.
What to Expect
For a walk-around, close-up event, you can expect incredible, award-winning magic that fully involves the audience and draws a crowd. For a trade show booth, I will draw a crowd to your booth and direct them toward your products, including incorporating your logo and slogans wherever possible.
For a parlor show, comedy magic show, or mentalist show, the evening will include a variety of magic specifically chosen for that event and audience.
For motivational speaking jobs, I have had over 20 years experience as a corporate trainer and public speaking, and know how to keep your audience's attention and get your message across. This is not some long, boring speech, but an interactive experience using magic to illustrate points throughout the presentation.
For a school, library, or church function, I will keep your kids involved in the show while getting across any message you want to convey. I will work with you to incorporate any theme or message you'd like into the show and illusions as much as possible.
One lazy afternoon in a local restaurant, Brian watched with amazement as a co-worker did a few card tricks. It was his first introduction to close-up magic and became an obsession. A late-night trip to a bookstore put his first magic book in his hands, and the learning began.
Twenty-plus years later, the love for magic is still going strong. Along the way, Brian has won awards and accolades from fellow magicians and spectators alike while leaving people with the same sense of wonder he felt when he saw that first card trick.
In 2013, 2015, and 2016, Brian was awarded "Magician of the Year" from the International Brotherhood of Magicians Ring 35 in Birmingham, becoming the first three-time winner in the history of the IBM Ring 35. Brian is past President of the IBM Ring 35 Magic City Magic Club.
In March 2016, Brian became the Close-Up Champion at the Winter Carnival of Magic in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
In March 2017, Brian was the opening speaker for Tedx Birmingham, bringing his magic-infused speaking to a whole new audience.
Brian performs for private parties, churches, libraries, business events, trade shows, and comedy clubs. His vast background in magic allows him the ability to create the perfect set for your particular event.
He is also a highly sought-after motivational speaker, bringing a magic touch to the topic at hand. He has over 20 years experience in public speaking and is able to make even the most difficult topic memorable.
He has carefully crafted every show for the individual moment. His parlor show has received rave reviews from audiences. For almost 90 minutes, they are taken through some of the most intense and entertaining magic performed today.
Whether you are looking for someone to add a few moments of pleasant entertainment to your next dinner party or Christmas party, or would like to make your wedding reception or trade show booth even more magical, Brian has just the thing for quality family entertainment in those moments.
Additional Booking Notes
For walk-around magic for an event or trade show booth, I will work with the area.
For a parlor show or mentalism show for a medium-size crowd, I will need an area of about 8 feet by 5 feet minimum to set up and move around. The more space I have to work with, the better your show will be.
If the job is a motivational speaking event, I will need a projector for PowerPoint presentation. If the crowd is larger than 50 people, I would prefer a microphone and sound system (and will gladly supply one if needed at no additional cost) so that everyone can clearly hear what's being said. This helps everyone to stay on track together.
