You will not be disappointed! HIRE MAX!

We want to thank you for the terrific show you put on for our party yesterday. I must admit I never hired anyone to perform such an act at a previous party, and I was a bit nervous about what to expect. I read tons of reviews online about acts similar to your's as well as other types of performances, trying to find the "right" act for our party. Your online bio impressed me but I was still skeptical, figuring anyone can write whatever they want on those bios. I did not know anyone who personally used you before, and I wanted to be sure the act would be 'professional.' Nonetheless, I decided to contact you and I was immediately impressed with your response time. I also appreciated your easy-going nature and honesty during our first conversation. As a result, I decided to take a gamble and book your services. Boy - am I ever glad I did! Everyone raved about your performance and had such an incredible time. You engaged, captivated, and entertained the entire group--not a small feat considering our guests ranged in age from under 10 years to over 90! Young and old alike were baffled as we tried to figure out how you performed one illusion after the next. We appreciated that you incorporated good, clean humor into your performance and included many of our guests into your act without embarrassing anyone. Our guests have not stopped talking about your performance - it was definitely the hit of the party. I would have no hesitation to recommend you to anyone who is looking for an amazing and unbelievable performance, and I will certainly contact you again in the future when I plan another party. Several individuals even called following the party to thank us for such a great time, and I know you were a big part of the party's success.

"I recently retained Max Krause from The Magic of Max Krause as entertainment for a facility grand opening. To say the least, Mr. Krause was a huge hit. My customers were baffled by his magic, entertained by his humor, and charmed by his personality and wit. Max made a huge impact on the success of the event. I would highly recommend him as a professional and greatly skilled magician, who is able to add significantly to any occasion. Max is an entertainment bargain and a pleasure to work with. I give him an unqualified top recommendation."

– Mike Kiefer

"I can not completely convey the praises I have for you and your talent. Your performance at the restaurant’s grand opening was nothing short of spectacular. Each and every guest I spoke with praised you both with respect to your clever tricks and topmost professionalism. That performance far exceeded the extraordinary demonstration you put on during your lunch visit several weeks earlier. I am a long time fan of magic and can easily say that you have renewed my fascination and appreciation of the art. Please continue to further your magnificent ability and astonish guests for a long time to come. "

"We had Mr. Krause at our wedding during the cocktail hour and he provided an outstanding performance which pleased all. Combined with his humor and wit he provided a terrific show which included magic that my friends and family still scratch there heads over saying, "How the heck did he do that?" He made our perfect day that much better and that is why we recommend him for any event."

– Brandon & Maria Murphy

"Max Krause performed at my sons 21st surprise birthday party. I Highly recommend him. Max is an extremely talented magician. His tricks will leave all of your guests in awe, from the toddlers to the senior citizens. I had guests of all ages at the party and they were all amazed. He does one trick with a lemon that will leave you baffled and another trick with a gumball machine that left all my guests stumped. He also does a mind reading premonition bit where he picks 3 audience members and predicts in writing exactly what they are thinking. Just amazing! I can go on and on. He won over the guests, my son who loves magic, and myself. Im sure that you will get as much satisfaction out of Max's performance as me and all my guests did!"

"I want to thank you so much for entertaining us at the Jaypro Sports / Unified Sports annual employee holiday luncheon, held at the Groton Inn and Suites in Groton, Connecticut on December 19th, 2007.

Our employment base is very diverse, ranging from technical and engineering personnel, to skilled trades people, to manual workers. We thought we would be challenged to find an entertainer that would be enjoyed by all, but you fit the bill exactly!!!!!

Everyone enjoyed your performance, and many remarked that they hope we have you back next year! A couple of employees remarked that your entertainment made this the “best holiday party Jaypro has ever had.”

Thank you so much for making our event a memorable one."

– Margaret M. Warfield

"When I was searching for entertainment for my companies Holiday Party it was suggested that we have a magician at our cocktail hour. The idea sounded good and we booked Max for our cocktail hour.

I was introduced to Max four years ago. He has been at our Holiday ever since and every time I see him perform Max blows us away with his illusions that it leaves you saying "How did he do that?" He is an amazing magician and would be a great asset to any party.

I would recommend Max Krause very highly. He is professional, courteous, and unbelievable at what he does. He would make any party a memorable and most enjoyable occasion."

– Barbara McDonald

"I just wanted to take a quick minute and thank you for the wonderful evening of magic you provided my guests at our recent holiday open house. Although the distance between Omaha and New York made the trip a long one, I'm glad you were able to fit us in on your schedule. Many of our guests commented on your professionalism and great showmanship while performing. Indeed many of them requested that we make sure and book you again next year! From my standpoint you were very accommodating of the logistics of our store...I know it probably wasn't the ideal place to perform, but you pulled it off wonderfully. I would and will highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a first class magician for any event. Again, thank you for the great night, I look forward to having you perform again at this year's event."

– John D. Osterholm

"Your performance at the Chromocell Holiday Party was very entertaining
and kept us at the edge of our seats. Every year the entire company gets
together to celebrate the Holidays, and each year we plan a different
surprise. Your magic show was a highlight in the series with tricks that
were hard to figure out, even for the many scientists in the audience.

We especially enjoyed how you would walk up to different tables and
engage them in more intimate settings. This kept the large group on
their toes and involved in the whole production.

Thanks very much for a wonderfully entertaining evening and we hope to
see you again at a future company event. "

– Kambiz Shekdar, Ph.D.

"The show was just great. It catered to my daughter's 13 year old friends, as well as to the younger kids and the adults too! Max engages the audience in a fun, inclusive way. There were a number of restrictions imposed by the fact that the show was held in a synagogue on the Sabbath. Max worked with us and was able to put together a terrific stage show followed by strolling magic. Highly recommended!"
