PLEASE NOTE: Illusions by Vick shows may result in your mind being amazed while a smile plays around your lips.
We had Illusions by Vick at my 30th Birthday Bash in June. He was amazing from the start, taking intense interest in our theme and portraying our "Court Illusionist" as authentically as possible. He even created his performance around the theme and characters we had at the party! He communicated promptly and was extremely easy to work with. He would be great for both kid and adult parties. Highly recommend him!
Response from Illusions By Vick:
Wonderful, very special people and one of the coolest, best organized and themed parties ever. This was an incredible night, a once in a lifetime event and I was very fortunate to be a very small part of it. Can't say enough wonderful things about the guest of honor Vanessa, her husband Nick (who did am amazing job) and everyone there.
Imagine a theme party where the guest of honor is Marie Antoinette, guests include God & Joan of Arc, Norman Mailer & Marilyn Monroe, Fred and Wilma Flintstone, Bert & Mary Poppins, you get the idea. A perfect night.
I just had a small birthday party and hired Vick as some entertainment. He was amazing! We had a room full of adults and kids. Vick received a standing ovation from the front of the room. He gave such a varried performance and we ALL love him! I would highly recommend him and my daughter is already planning her birthday with a illusionist named Vick!
Vick was so amazing! My husband and I hired him to perform at our wedding, and we, as well as our guests, could not have been more pleased. He really involved the audience and made sure everyone had a great time. The show was definitely my favorite part of the wedding (next to marrying my husband, of course).
Vick is so personable and professional. If you're on the fence about hiring him for any reason, please, take the chance; you won't regret it. He even moved all of his equipment inside at the last minute when we realized things were just not going to work well under the tent outside.
Seriously, I cannot say enough good. I wish there were more stars to give.
Response from Illusions By Vick:
Thank you Elizabeth! It was an honor to be a small part of your and Brett's wedding reception, had a lot of fun. You were a wonderful audience. Enjoyed customizing magical effects to fit your theme and to perform a special magical effect for you & Brett. Great to meet you and everyone. I wish you and Brett all the best life has to offer.
Vic was great. He entertained the entire group of guests. Children and adults were talking about his performance during the remainder of our party.
Response from Illusions By Vick:
Thank you Sharon. I had a great time performing for and meeting everyone at Terri's 60th Birthday Celebration. You were a wonderful and fun audience. Excellent party with a lot of love. Thank you for allowing Illusions by Vick to be a small part of special celebration.
While the entertainment is primarily for adults am glad to read your few younger guests enjoyed it also.
I hired Illusions by Vick for my husband's 50th Birthday Party and he was amazing! My husband loves magic and has seen quite a few magicians. He said Vick was the best live magic show he has ever seen. From the minute Vick walked in our door we knew he was the real deal, great outfit, style and personality. The show itself was a lot of fun and interactive. It wasn't your run of the mill tricks. We received many compliments from our guests as well.
Leading up to the party Vick was easy to work with, answered emails quickly, asked questions, always polite and helpful. On the day of the show he arrived early to set up and didn't need anything from us. We had a great experience, are very happy and highly recommend Illusions by Vick. Thank you Vick.
The performance was spot-on. Illusions by Vick held a group of skeptics captive and had them begging for more. The adults were as entertained as the kids!
Very easy to work with; all guests enjoyed the show. Vick set up a small table and also worked the room - always around but never pushy or in your face. A great addition to our event. Friendly and professional.
Response from Illusions By Vick:
Thank you very much Brendan.
You organized an excellent party at the National Aquarium. Sincerely enjoyed myself, a lot of fun to perform for and meet everyone there. Great group, intelligent and outgoing guests. I wish you and all at BoardEffect continued success.
This review is late, but actually what reminded me to post it is that I entertain quite a bit, and as the guy who pays the bills, I can tell you (the person reading this, thus the person paying the bill) you will not regret a penny. It's just good, family friendly entertainment.
Response from Illusions By Vick:
Thank you Dennis. Am honored. Please be well. Best wishes, Vick
Illusionist Vick performed at our resort twice this past year and did such a great job that we've already booked him again in 2017! He was very easy to work with and his show was spectacular! The kids were completely entranced by the performance and even the adults were impressed. You can tell that he genuinely loves what he does and has spent a lot of time perfecting his craft. Highly recommended for any event!
Response from Illusions By Vick:
Thank you Raven! It was a pleasure to perform at your resort this year and am very much looking forward to the two dates in 2017. Beautiful resort with wonderful audiences! Had a lot of fun there. Thank you for having Illusions by Vick perform there and for having me return.
From the beginning to the end - from the clear and well-organized WEB site, to detailed and helpful emails and communication during the show organization period's back and forth, to the impeccable appearance, to the classy yet lively and witty performance, to the impressive tricks, to the perfect demeanor - the experience has been an A+ throughout. Vick is a gem; highly, highly recommended. (Ours was a house-based 50th birthday party for about 35 guests; and Vick accommodated and delivered beyond expectations. One hint: make sure you discuss all details of your occasion with him - his vast experience allows him to offer most helpful suggestions on setting the show up, and incorporating it into the party's flow - for us his gift presentation suggestion even influenced the selection of the gift).
Vick was fantastic from start to finish.He took great care to understand what we wanted from his performance.
He performed during our holiday party in front of about 30 guests and our 5 year old son.The performance was very polished
and he included a few tricks especially for our son who was absolutely entranced by the experience. He stayed on afterward to allow people to ask questions and did some close up magic.
Our guests were very impressed and this is testimony to Vick's talent and professionalism.I would heartily recommend Vick's performance.
Wow! Vick gave us another fantastic show. We have hired Illusions by Vick three tme now and he keeps finding new ways to entertain and amaze us. Very professional, totally engaging, a pleasure to work with and to watch perform. Our party was a fireworks cruise on the 4th of July and Vick was the perfect entertainment. If you ever have the opportunity to hire him (or to see him perform) I strongly suggest you do, it's an amazing show with something for everyone. All our guests were raving about him! Thanks again Vick for a great time

Vick is an excellent entertainer. He came highly recommended and we are very happy with his performance. It really felt like we stepped into the golden age of magic while Vick was on stage. Totally amazing and very entertaining!!!
Vick's show captivated and charmed us all. Vick gave us something more than just a "magic show", he took us on an amazing journey. I was expecting magic, but what we got was art. Vick listened to what we wanted and the ideas we had and offered options for our party. If you have the opportunity to hire Illusions by Vick I strongly recommend him for any event you have!

Original illusions, "classics" of magic, feats of mentalism in an interactive presentation filled with audience participation and a good time for all. Parlor magic is great for Adult events such as Adult Birthdays, all age birthdays, holiday events including Halloween and December Holiday Parties, intimate gatherings and events where a unique, entertaining presence is desired. Recommended for audiences of 5 to 250 guests.
For adults a bottle of wine (or similar shaped bottle) can be magically produced and gifted to someone in the audience.
Mobile Station Performance - Innovative alternative to strolling (or walk around) magic that encourages guests to enjoy magic at their leisure while adding to the elegance, intrigue and festivity of your event.

Please contact Illusions By Vick for details about this unique performance style.
Stage (or Platform) Magic - Similar to Parlor Magic, usually on a stage or raised platform and of a slightly broader performance scope (Can include Houdini's Metamorphosis, Strait Jacket Escape and other large illusions). Stage Magic can be incorporated into many venues and is recommended for larger parties, events and banquets.
Mentalism - "Shades of Perception" is the Mentalist Illusions by Vick show available for you and your guests entertainment, amazement and enlightenment. In "Shades of Perception" Illusions by Vick acknowledges Mentalism isn't about "mind reading" as the mind is not a book to be opened and read, instead the mind has varying shades of perception, thought, feelings, emotions and many attributes that are not yet fully understood. In this new show Illusions by Vick focuses on the audience, searching for and illuminating their powers and abilities which they may not have been aware they possess! "Shades of Perception" runs between 20 and 45 minutes depending on the event and desires of the host. Please contact Illusions by Vick for more information and to schedule your show

"Everyone had such a good time with you.
You created a perfect blend of illusions and we were all having such fun that the time flew by.
You really crafted your act to match the size and character of the audience.
Plus, you arrived on time, were absolutely game for anything, and did such a great job entertaining."
"..... Just to let you know, everyone really enjoyed your show!
Thank you for your help in making Rich's 50th birthday a memorable event.
I will surely recommend you and your talents."
"I heard from many who thoroughly enjoyed the presentation and clearly had a great time.
Many were talking about the Sorcerer's Apprentice long after you'd gone.
I think everyone appreciated the fact that you asked the Scouts to rise to your level rather than talking down to them. Also, kudos to you for handling this active bunch so well."
"Vick is outstanding! I can't say enough great things about him and his performance.
I threw a very special party for new clients, friends and family and wanted something fresh, stylish and unique and for them to be entertained (and impressed).
Vick exceeded even my expectations. I asked for an illusionist (like Eisenheim from the movie)and am thrilled with the results. He was great working with me before the event too.
Everything was perfect!"
