I had the magician for my daughter's party and he was fantastic! He showed up on time, communicated very well prior to the event, was amazing with the kids. I feel that he went above and beyond what was expected. I can't wait to have him back again.
What to Expect
We strive for perfection with each performance. Our priorities include the safety and enjoyment of all of our patrons. We use only professional and quality materials for all of our work, and go the distance with extra details in signage, equipment, and even the uniform we wear represents our ideals. We display advanced skills when we interact with patrons while we work - putting them at ease, getting to know them, entertaining them while we work - even if it's not a show, per se.
The T.A.G. Art Company was established in 2000 and has grown steadily every year, because we focus on versatility, quality, affordability, and good old-fashioned customer service. We love what we do and it's always an honor to have an opportunity to do it. While this may be an overused term, if we can't be an enhancement to your event, we'll be the first to tell you!
Troy Ganser (a.k.a. "Mr. G."), Director, has been a professional artist since grade school and has always known "what he wanted to be when he grew up" He has developed many of the services offered today and holds a number of fun company records - such as over 250,000 caricatures drawn to-date, and the world record for the "largest single panel comic strip."
TAG Art began with basic services in caricatures and evolved to more than 20 different services to-date, all developing from customer needs and embracing opportunities as they presented themselves. All TAG Art services are fun, family-friendly, and professional options. We never offer less-than-premier results and always offer choices within the service (for example, did you know that we're capable of more than 10 different kinds of caricatures alone?)
When you call our office, you can expect a friendly "TAG! We're it!" and a personable sales consultant to help you with your needs. From intimate single-artist birthday parties, to multiple-artist corporate functions to complete themed-events, we can be your one-stop shop for all creative service needs. Our no-pressure approach welcomes questions, concerns, and a sensitivity to budgets. In short, we believe in making your life easier, being the "least of your worries" and building relationships that are "customers for life."
Our experience also gives us well-earned wisdom to offer advice and further options for your event. And our network of talent includes magic, music, animal shows, and a wide variety of strolling talent. We can even put on an event worth charging admission to with our performance art!
So when we say, "TAG! We're it!" we mean that we're "it" for your event and all you'll ever need for success!
Additional Booking Notes
With every event - even if we're providing services in a basic capacity as simple as balloon art - we have consideration for both public and our employees. Locations for services may not interfere with or be impeded by traffic flow; Our artists may not be placed in harm's way or in an environment of extremes - cold, heat, noise, or anything that will affect their peak production. Because of our versatility, other technical details are addressed on a per-event basis via contract.
