Rod was great. Worked the crowd and didn’t disappoint. Would definitely book him again
Rod was friendly and very wntertaining. Our customers enjoyed having him and so did we! We will book him again!
Rod did a great job entertaining my 100+ guests bar crawl. He showed up early and stayed late and made sure everyone got attention. A true entertainment professional, I would highly recommend him and would definitely hire him again.
I hired Rod to give a performance at a friend's bachelor party. He came to the house where we were staying and blew our minds for an hour straight. Not only was the magic top-notch--my friends and I are still recapping it a week later--Rod was a funny, engaging presence throughout, notably in perhaps not the most ideal circumstances for a performer (close quarters with 10 strangers with very high expectations!). We had a great time and I would recommend Rod wholeheartedly!
We hired Rod for 2 conventions.
He was professional, communicated well before and after performance and he really had an interest in making sure that his performance helped you capture the crowd to generate leads during the show. He incorporated the company into his performance with positive results. I would definitely hire for future shows. He created energy and crowds, and fun to the show.
Rod was a pleasure to work with. He was prompt, professional, and outgoing with guests. All of our guests were wowed! This was a great experience overall
Rod Cannon did a great job at our small corporate event -
He is professional, charming, and really good at what he does, which is entertain!
He had our guests amazed, asking him to "Do the trick again!" because they couldn't believe their eyes.
He was very helpful, too, gamely helping us rally more guests to our event.
If we had another event like that, I'd be glad to hire Rod again, and you should, too!
You were terrific; exactly the smooth, even graceful, sort of amazing diversion we were hoping for. I hope you can be in Santa Fe enough that you can work other events.
When he arrived to the studios, his first mini audience was a group of ten teamsters. The hardest group of men to please, and within 3 minutes he had them all in the palm of his hand.
He did 2 hours of some short sets and walk arounds and everybody was talking about him. This guy is GOOD. I love magicians and Rod is one of the best, lovely guy, and a total showman. Respect to this guy.
Price Range: $150 and Up
What to Expect
Prompt, clean, fun, personal, professional close up magic that entertain's everyone.
Rod Cannon has been performing the art of magic professionally for over 30 years. As a teen Rod was one of the premier junior members of the Magic Castle in Los Angeles, CA. The junior program was sponsored by The Academy of Magical Arts and Sciences to help educate young people in the Art of Magic. This allowed Rod to hone his magic skills, and pursue a fruitful career.
In 1989 Rod returned back to his hometown of Kansas City, Mo. He began showcasing at two of the city's top fine dining establishments. Along with fine dining clientele Rod has also performed magic at three of Kansas City's floating casinos, including the Hilton Flamingo where he completed a six month contract in 1996. A few years later Rod returned to Los Angeles where he was involved in the trade show circuit performing magic and many different venues around the country.
Rod currently resides in New Orleans, LA performing for private parties, corporate events, festivals and fairs throughout the South.
