Amazing doesnt begin to describe...

I have seen Steve perform on many occasions, and I am consistently in awe! He knows how to draw in large crowds, and keep them mesmerized with flair and thousands of surprises. He handles tough situations well; (read: drunk people heckling) and seamlessly blends everything together with his hilarious segues.

Seriously, if this guy doesn't become world-famous, I will be shocked. He has potential as a comedian, magician or all around performer-- he adapts wel!!

If you want to have a beyond AMAZING time, you've found the performer for you!!

Steve killed it at my Christmas party

I hired Steve to come to my Christmas party. The event was a house party consisting of mainly 21-25 year old people getting drunk. Doesn't sound like an ideal venue for a magician right? Well, you are wrong. Steve showed up on time, walked in, and immediately started rocking out tricks. By the end of his time at my house there was a massive circle around him as he did trick after trick. He even had some hecklers, who he proceeded to perform some tricks on. He added a whole new dimension to the night. Every time I see someone who was at the party always mentions "the magician" when we talk about the night. Long story stort, if Steve could wow the could at my house, then he can wow any crowd. I will definitely keep him in mind for future parties.

Cliff notes:
- Very fair pricing
- Great magician
- Great performer
- On time, did everything he said he would
- Good guy

Entertaining, Fun and a Great Time for all Guests

Just as his name implies - "Amazing". Our venue for the day was three hours of non-stop entertainment for 170 guests who all arrived by boat for our poker run fundraiser. Steve was the perfect entertainer - card tricks, mind tricks and all out fun and amusement. We received numerous compliments from guests after the event and people still are talking about the magic man who can bend forks, hide cards and tell tales. Simply put, it was terrific. We did not have to do anything; Steve took care of it all. He showed on time and just started talking with our guests – the time flew by and it gave the evening that special touch long to be remembered.

You Must See Him For Yourself!

Steve performed at my daughter's 10th birthday party. Every single trick he did was incredible and just left us dumbfounded. He performed up-close, so everything happened right in front of us, which made it all the more amazing. He even involved the kids and made it appear as though they were the ones doing the magic, and he was also very funny. His incredible talent and passion for magic just shined through his performance. Steve was very professional, and I honestly couldn't have been more pleased with the experience. You really must see him for yourself!

Literally Amazing!

He honestly had the entire restaurant at a stand still. Waitresses and waiters were just piling in to watch him perform. Steve has a very unique approach on magic, which makes him even more entertaining to simply experience. If it wasn't for my food arriving late because of all the wait staff distracted by the performance, then it would of been an even more amazing show.

I thoroughly enjoyed Steve!

I thought he was thoroughly entertaining. I'm not gonna lie, when my mom told me she hired a magician I almost blew up on her. But I sat and thought, "hey, he's a performer, I'm a performer, I'll give the fellow performer a chance and support." And I must say I am very glad I did! His tricks were thoroughly entertaining and it was pretty hard not to say "wow" to at least one of his plays. Everyone at my party loved him (30+ teenagers aged fifteen to twenty) and found him incredibly easy to get along with. So there you go, I hope you give him a shot as well too!

Review by Jack B.

If this fantastic performer doesn't have real magic, then I don't wanna know. After every trick, I'm left blown to my basic functions and an overjoyed happiness for the world floods in. Every move is seemless. Moves are confident. He'll play like he's unsure of himself and you're taken off guard when his "apparent" bumble is actually something leading up to the fantastic impossible result of success. Definately a first class magician in all he does. :)

Review by Rhonda L.

You can stand right next to him and he starts talking. Next thing you know, a fork is bending or a spoon is twisting or you card just left your hand and HE has it! The card in your hand is changed! It's amazing! Everyone I saw who watched him just couldn't figure it out either. It's not like a stage show where you're so far away, you're sure there's something else going on that you just can't see. Everything thing he did was mind boggling. Truly fun times!!

Review by Cathy M.

Steve and I emailed several times regarding my daughter's reception and I was pleased with how he presented himself. We were ready to hire him, but my daughter had a different vision for her reception that didn't include a magician. Steve is very accomodating and I encourage anyone who is looking for a laid back kind of magician to consider hiring him. His videos show that he gets along well with people, and that was a major selling point for me.

Steve volunteered his amazing majic act for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life Greater Heights. He performed throughout the crowd from 6pm Friday til 6am Saturday. His tricks amuzed everyone and kept them relaying through the night. What a success! Thank you, Steve.

Review by Jordan K.

I was very impressed by the overall way that Steve seemed to handle himself in a crowd. Often a swarm of small children can be intimidating to even the most experienced entertainer and he made it seem almost effortless, even as they encroached into his personal space time and again. It was very pleasant seeing the obvious wonder and enjoyment in the children's eyes as well as the skeptical and clear confusion on the adult's faces as everyone involved tried to figure out and dissect his incredible and very often humorous illusions and card trickery. I have since tried to attend any other events in the area he has performed in and found myself equally impressed at each performance. Would gladly book for an event if I had once appropriate for his talents.
