What to Expect
As a "guest entertainer," James tries to not make a big spectacle about a magician. Instead, his focus is on helping to keep the party engaged, the energy up, and guests moving and talking at the party. With tricks that are meant to involve multiple people and use objects found at the party, the goal is to help add that extra "10%" factor to take your event from good to amazing.
You can expect clear communication leading up to the event, a desire to help you plan and coordinate the event so that the tricks, costume, and performance match your event, and help you figure out ways to take your event to the next level.
A special trick can always be included in the performance for important VIP guests or anyone you would like to see something special.
A magician can be added to any type of party with ease and never feel obtrusive but a natural part of your event.
James Lopez started magic like any other magician would, a magic kit that is bought for a young kid. He did a little magic but didn't start performing till after College when he saw the very first trick he ever learned performed in such a way that he truly believed magic is real. From there, he consumed as much magic as he could and quickly went from hobbyist to being invited to New York to perform in the East Village and with various cabaret and circus troupes.
For the last 5 years, James has begun a quest to try and make magic "cool" again. With a more relaxed approach to magic, James has worked on creating ambiance and environments where people can be entertained and improve the energy of the party. As a guest entertainer, emcee, or main attraction, James has created shows that can please everyone and will cater his performance to your theme, style, or show.

Influences & Inspiration
Max Malini, in the early 1900s came to the United States with nothing. When he would walk into a show and people would ask where his props were for his show, he would respond "I am the show!"
His work, as well as many contemporary magicians, have left an impact on my performing style and work on creating great shows.
Many other performers you may not have heard of.
