It was my husband’s 41st birthday and he wanted to see a magician. He’s a big fan of close up magic. I looked into going to a show in Boston but then realized I could hire someone to come to us. So I found Joe! He came to my house to perform for 6 of us. He was awesome. Very funny, kept it engaging, involved everyone in the tricks, some really blew our minds. We were very pleased. When I first started looking I noticed the prices ranged pretty significantly. I thought I might need to go with a more expensive magician to get better quality, but when Joe also offered a video of the night, I figured with all of his experience he must be good so I went with him who was very reasonably priced. I’m so glad I did. Like I said he was great, we laughed a lot, and his wife was there to take the video which is awesome. What a memory! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for some fun entertainment and great tricks. It was really cool.
Response from The Magic of Joe Ferranti:
WOW, Thank you, thank you.
Joe was awesome! He was professional and easy to work with from the first moment
I contacted him. He knew how to interact with my guests, made them laugh and his magic was performed flawlessly. My guests were delighted. Thanks Joe for making my birthday so special!
Response from The Magic of Joe Ferranti:
How lucky am I to perform for audiences as open and willing to play this little game we call magic. The real magic is the audience, and this one was very special...what a pleasure.
Joe, was personable and truly added magic to our day. Throughly the event I watched him dazzle small crowds with his tricks and humor. Money well spent! We'll see you again Joe. Thanks
Joe was as professional as it gets! Super responsive via email leading up to my event, punctual, and very personable. He wowed our group with fantastic slight-of hand tricks. Joe was sure to work the room to make it to every guest - remembering everyone's name along the way! I would highly recommend Joe to anyone in the Boston area. He is sure to elevate the fun at your next gathering!!
I hired Joe though GigSalad for a backyard graduation party of about 50 folks of all ages. Joe was very professional and we spoke a number of times to adjust when he would start to ensure most of the folks would have arrived. Joe worked the area very thoroughly and made it a point to go up to groups of 2-8 to surprise them with card and coin tricks. Everyone I spoke with found Joe to be charismatic and amazed at what he did. Joe had a few followers by the end of the party who were very sad to see him go. It was worth every penny and I would not hesitate to give Joe a 5 star review and recommendation.
Thank you so much for performing at AIM on Tuesday, Jan 8th. The members loved the show. You were so entertaining and we loved the stories you told while engaging their interests. We look forward to having you back in the spring and would love to book you again for next year too!

Response from The Magic of Joe Ferranti:
There are givers and takers in this world. The Women of Wilmington, (WOW) and Angels in Motion, (AIM) are among the givers.
Noreen and Pam stand head and shoulders with the givers.(Maybe a little higher.)
Noreen has more than enough to do just raising her family, not to mention she works as an Optometrist.
What an appreciative group. 5 stars for AIM and their volunteers.
I have known Joe for several years. He is without a doubt one of the finest close-up magicians I know. His knowledge of the Art of Magic never ceases to amaze me. He is one of the finest card men I know. Hire him for your event and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Having seen many magicians over the years, I can honestly say that Joe Ferranti is the best of the best! Guests were amazed and delighted with the stunningly deceptive and graceful magic. Not only was his magic incredible, but his demenaor was warm and welcoming. Instead of "tricking" the audience, he brought us into his world of magic and madce us feel like we were experiencing magic WITH him, not BY him.
From the initial contact on the phone to the final good-bye at the ceremony, I could not be more pleased with his professionalism. For a top-notch close-up magician, you'd be CRAZY not to hire Joe Ferranti.
What to Expect
To see how clients enjoy my entertainment, please watch the first video of "Wedding Magic" at the Marriot in Quincy.(Although the video does not show the "tricks" the reactions tell the biggest part of the successful event.
Most spectators have never seen a professional Magician in person. The difference from seeing something on TV, as opposed to , up close, in your hands is dramatic.
Typical reactions from groups are laughing, expletives, running away. In short, they are stunned at seeing something the "know" can't happen.
There are two ingredients which make for a successful performer. In no particular order, Talent and skill. It literally takes thousands of hours of practice to attain a professional level of expertise, but this is not enough. The performer with only extreme skill will be perceived as a "show off."
Skill must be married with a developed character of interest who will make you care. (Simply put...personality/charisma.) In combination you have an act that people will talk about for years to come.
My clients can expect a 5 star performance. I will go over every detail of an event. If in anyway I feel I may fall short of expectations, I will decline my services.
I will not disappoint any client.
Joe is without a doubt one of Boston’s Best Walk Around/Strolling Magicians.
He is a consistent 5 Star rated Magician on all platforms in Massachusetts.
What does this mean to you? ... Whether your event is a Wedding, Birthday Party or Corporate event, your “Day” will long be remembered by all of your guests. (They will tell you so.)

Additional Booking Notes
No equipment is necessary. When I perform, I don't even need a table. Quite often I use the spectators hands to assist in the Magic. I need a few sips of water, ( I talk a lot.) but I don't think that's a technical requirement.
One less thing for you to worry about. I arrive and entertain,... simple as that.

Influences & Inspiration
I have studied the work of the masters. I sometimes perform material that was originally created over 50 years ago. (or longer.)
This does not mean I perform in the manner of a magician from the past. Everything is upbeat, fast paced and visual. The secret is to keep your performing style as fresh as the first time you made your debut. (only honed to a sharp edge from experience.)
