While being sceptic at first, wondering if our employees would enjoy such a different experience, the feedback I received was overwhelmingly positive. The buzz after the event and in the office Monday was "How did he know that?", "I can't figure out how", etc. I would definitely recommend Don to everyone!
Don was a lot of fun for our company holiday party! He made us laugh, blew our minds, and maybe even converted some skeptics. His power of suggestion routine was very impressive! He was easy to work with leading up to the event.
I was a little apprehensive since I'd never booked anything through GigSalad, and I'd never seen Don perform. Everything worked out great! Booking through GigSalad was easy - searching for an entertainer, online payment, and communicating with Don. Don was very responsive and professional during our "negotiations" so I felt pretty confident he'd deliver as expected, and the performance was just what we were looking for. I'd book Don again, and book through GigSalad again.
Don was incredible! The non-believers are now believers! Super friendly, great with all types of personalties. Will keep his number for next event. How did he do that was heard frequently.
Don was the entertainment for our office holiday party and everyone loved it! Don is highly professional and made sure that everyone was comfortable with the hypnosis. . Everyone is still talking about the show and I definitely recommend Don for any event!
Don was very entertaining and gave a great performance during our company holiday party. Our employees loved the show and were excited to have something different than your average holiday entertainment. Don was amazing and made a great connection with his audience. He did a great job engaging everyone; there wasn’t a bad seat in the house! I would highly recommend him for any of your events, big or small, Don is a guaranteed hit!
Don entertained over 40 people at our house on New Year's eve and kept everyone involved for an hour and a half. We are constantly receiving comments about his amazing performance. I could not give Don a better recommendation: he was superb and worth every penny !!

"You should give Don a try! You won’t be disappointed. Don performed at our Holiday party and was incredibly entertaining, and held everyone’s attention. Employees were still buzzing about the Saturday show on Monday morning. They were ‘amazed, astonished,’ and ‘in disbelief’ of the things he could do. They said he was ‘fantastic, mind boggling and mind blowing’. We are glad we chose Don for our entertainment; it was well worth it!"
- Keystone Savings Bank
“Don instantly had the group's attention and kept it until the very end. A quote from one of the nurses: 'I will NOT be able to sleep tonight!' The entertainment brings a lot of laughs and applause. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any group, large or small. You will not be disappointed!”

-Private Party client
"I have to tell you, yours was one of the BEST shows I've ever seen! Months later, my family and I still talk about it. It was Interesting, entertaining and eerily accurate. Most of us were very skeptical of your performance at first...but as the show went on you managed to amaze us all and win over even the most reluctant believers. Knowing what food my sister had stashed in her purse is still amazing us to this day! (It was pistachios).
I WHOLEHEARTEDLY recommend you. I would be glad to tell them in person what an amazing experience we had with you."
-Kathy Yudys, Private party client
"Earlier this year I had the pleasure of attending Don Marlette's show at a local theatre. He was funny and truly amazing in the way he used audience participation to involve everyone. His skills shown in being able to read minds,share his sense of humor and most of all to make sure his show was entertaining and fun. I would recommend if you have the chance to see his show to take it. You won't be disappointed."
-Elaine Larsen, audience participant
"Don entertained for our party on New Year's Eve, and kept everyone involved for an hour and a half. We are constantly receiving comments about his amazing performance. I could not give Don a better recommendation: he was superb and worth every penny!"
"Don Marlette recently performed gallery readings at my healing center in Cedar Rapids. He was very punctual and professional. He offered this the entire weekend on a donation basis, which allowed people who were new to this to experience it without pressure. He brings in very accurate messages with a nice blend of humor. The public was very receptive to the messages and declared that he was very good at what he does. Several people brought more friends to join the next day. He also encouraged people to play an intuitive game, which gave them the knowing that they can develop their intuition as well. Don is highly recommended for any types of readings and is welcome at my center anytime."
- Michelle Stafford, owner, Illuminations Healing Arts Center
Don turned some skeptics into believers and managed to perform a mind blowing show."
