Why book Magician Dan Mindo?

Chicagolands Favorite Children's Magician! The Daily Herald: "Magician Dan Mindo Wows The Crowd!" Dan Mindo specializes in parties for children.

Magic can be a wonderful way to entertain children. I cannot tell you how many times I have spoken with adults who have shared with me that their strongest childhood memory is when their parents hired a magician for their birthday. They may have forgotten the gifts they received, but they still remember the experience of magic!

Awesome magician for a party!

We hired Dan to perform for 20 kids at my son's 7th birthday party and it was certainly an event to remember! The kids were enthralled the entire time and are still saying, "how did he do that?!" He made balloons for all the kids after his show as well which was a nice touch. Dan was a pleasure to deal with, arrived on time, and performed as stated. I would definitely recommend him for any event!

HE WAS GREAT!

Dan performed at a family birthday party for us last week. HE WAS GREAT The kids were from 13 to 3 and he knew their names, had each work with him on a trick and really did a fine job. I would strongly recommend him and plan to use his services again in the near future. John Mangel Kenilworth, Ill

Dan is a true professional. He arrived on time, set-up without any hassle, and entertained the heck out of the families at our festivals. We have already booked Dan for this year's event.

Dan Mindo was absolutely wonderful. He really connected with the kids and had them laughing and squealing with delight from the beginning! He was also extremely easy to work with. My younger child has a birthday coming up and she has already requested that we hire Dan Mindo. Thanks Dan, you were terrific!

Review by Nancy S.

“My daughter Ava wanted to have a magician at her 8th birthday party. We were fortunate enough to find Dan Mindo. Dan Mindo was able to captivate 30 children with his mystifying magic act. All the children were completely spellbound. They thoroughly enjoyed being called up on stage and assisting with the magic show. After the magic show Dan made balloon creations for all of the kids. I don’t know how it could have been any better! It was the best and most fun party we have ever had. I’m not sure how I’d ever top Dan Mindo!”

"Dan did a fantastic job! I had never seen a magic show live before, and I was very impressed with the tricks he did; he also included EVERYONE in the fun and magic. I would definitely have Dan perform at another party. Great job Dan, everyone loved your act!

Review by Beth G.

Best decision I ever made regarding my daughter's birthday celebration. Mr, Mindo was able to tame and dazzle a crowd of 8 year old children. My daughter said it was her best party ever. She was beaming while assisting a particular act. All the children were excited to receive balloons that Mr. Mindo twisted into various animals or objects. Overall the show exceeded my expectations.

His passion for the art of magic has remained a constant throughout his life.

Dan is the founder of the latest incarnation of the Chicago Magic Roundtable, a monthly gathering of Chicago-area magicians. He is the creator of a mystifying escape stunt that was published in The Mystery School book and featured on the Masters of Illusion television special. Dan performs his magic at parties and events throughout the Chicagoland area.
