Close Up Magic

Would you like to host the best party ever?

Close up magic can turn any function into an incredible event.

Let’s face it, planning an incredible party is not easy. Weddings, cocktail hours, company-wide meetings, fundraisers and private parties come with a lot of decisions and making them can be difficult. You know hiring the right entertainment can make a huge difference! If you are planning a conference or client relations event or trade show, it can be even more important. It has to be entertaining, engaging, flexible and more importantly high quality. You want your event to start strong and end with an unforgettable experience.

Just look at the reactions in this photo. They won’t forget this moment any time soon!

Here are a few options that have worked well for a variety of events.

There are many different options available for your event. Custom packages are always available, so there is a solution for any situation and budget.

Roving Magic:

Close up magic is the perfect option for any cocktail hour or social event. If you are looking for a way to break the ice for your wedding, fundraiser or reception it doesn’t get better than this. This is where the magician would go from group to group and those guests would be entertained by their own 5 to 10 minute show using borrowed items, cards and money. People love this kind of magic because they can look as close as they want. This is a GREAT way to increase the energy of your event right at the start. Usually packages start with 1 to 2 hour options but custom packages are available for things like hospitality suites, trade shows and festivals.

Formal Close Up Magic:

If you have an audience of less than 40 people, this is the show for you. The full show ranges from 40-45 minutes with shorter options available. This is also a great option for smaller performance spaces (no stage required). The show is filled with amazing card magic and humor based on the type of show a king or queen would have in their drawing rooms. It’s elegant, exciting and leaves your guests with a fun experience they won’t forget.

Here’s a photo from Diamond’s Magic in Peabody, Ma. Vince, the owner of Diamond’s Magic, mentioned this close up magic show had one of the largest turn outs all year!

Small Audience:

A great option, if your audience is larger than 50 people but less than 100. Again, no stage is required. The small show is very unique and a special experience for anyone viewing it. It’s meant for a small audience because everyone will feel involved and be left with a story to tell. This is the style of performance popular during Houdini’s time, where a king and queen would host a small show for their friends and family. Cards are found on the tip of a knife, minds are read and memories will be made.

Look at this photo from Kate’s Simple Eats in Marion, Ma. These guests are still talking about how incredible the magic was that night!

Combining Two Options:

While the formal close up show is the most popular, the best package to make the biggest impact for your guests including roving and the show. This includes an evening of roving magic to start the event and a formal performance to close it. This helps your event maintain excitement and energy. This also helps your guests receive more attention and feel like they received a unique experience just for them.
