Benjamin was a true hit at our wedding! Not only was the magic mind-blowing, but it caused everyone to mingle together, even strangers. Extremely entertaining, my guests could not stop talking about him.
Everyone enjoyed. Great Show.
I hired Benjamin to perform close-up magic at my wedding reception. I did this as a surprise for my bride, as she did not know he'd be there! Benjamin was great, he worked his way around to pretty much everyone. Feedback was universally positive, folks loved his performance. He blew people's minds with his rubber band tricks. Benjamin put in extra effort to ensure a great evening, he really added a wonderful dimension to our celebration. I hope to have the opportunity to hire him again!
Hired Benjamin for a house party of around 50 guest. Benjamin made every single guest feel like they experienced their own private show. He's professional, sociable, and extremely talented. The way he navigated his way through this crowd of professionals was truly magical in it's self. the thank you's I received from my guest all commented on the special touch Benjamin added to the successful night. Hire this guy!! You wont be disappointed.

Benjamin Barnes', fascination with magic began when he was a boy growing up in Chicago. During his college career, one of the greatest magicians of the 20th Century discovered Benjamin's potential and became his mentor. After graduation, Benjamin took his place in Corporate-America. After an early employer learned Benjamin was a magician was a magician, he asked him to provide the entertainment for a group of prospective clients. That informal performance was the begining of a career that has taken him across the country. Today Benjamin Barnes is one of the most sought after entertainers for professional audiences. His work combines the mysteries of magic with a warm and engaging personality.
“Thank you for making our holiday party a big hit. Your card tricks and sleight of hand were incredible, and people are still talking about them. I will never look at the Queen of Hearts the same way again!”

Colleen M. | Appraisal Institute
“I had contacted Benjamin Barnes to perform his magic for the 1,800 children that attended our Company Christmas Party. Benjamin performed 8-10 shows throughout the day and the children as well as the adults were thrilled with his performances. Benjamin was professional and handled the children very well. When the children were asked what their favorite part of the program was they all agreed that the magic was the best part of the show (he out performed Santa Claus!). Benjamin was definitely an asset to our party.”
