Adult 30th Birthday magic in Scottsdale

Adult 30th Birthday magic in Scottsdale

I had the honor of performing birthday magic at a 30th birthday party held in Scottsdale AZ. I had  provided magical entertainment for the 30th birthday boy and his parents in the past and was really happy to work with them again. The event was held at the Miracle Mile Deli in Scottsdale, a favorite lunch and dinner spot for many people in the area. In addition to great food and magic they had a...

A gentleman found my profile on GigMasters, an online entertainment booking site and asked if I could add magic at his wife’s 60th birthday party in Phoenix, AZ. We talked a bit about my style and what I could offer. We decided a stand up show with magic, mind reading and clean-intelligent humor would be best. I have to say it was a great party. Lots of friends talked about their life with the...

Best magic at 60th birthday Scottsdale az

I had the honor of performing magic at a man’s 62nd birthday party in Scottsdale Arizona. It was a blast. The magic began with a bit of close up magic while mingling with guests. Some pretty amazing things happened. The best thing for me was how connected everyone was. The group was connected by a love for competition… like marathons and Ironman. Perhaps it was this connection that made some...

60th Birthday party magic in phoenix, AZ

I received a call asking me to perform for a friend’s father-in-law’s 60th birthday celebration. We decided I’d perform a bit of close-up magic first and follow it with a 30 minute stand up magic and mentalism show. The twist was it was an eastern Indian family party. About 80 friends were gathered to celebrate. Most wore traditional garb that was colorful and festive. Many of the women...

Are you planning a 40th, 50th or 60th birthday party?  I got a call last month from someone who was doing exactly that. It was her 50th and she wanted to add entertainment to her party. She thought about how wonderful magic was and wanted to hire a magician to make her party more special and interactive. We discussed options for the party. Would close up magic or a small stand up show be best?...

The 70th birthday party boy (I think we are always little boys when it comes to birthdays) was a very kind man who was taken by the love his...

My friends know I am a huge fan of Jimmy Buffet. Not only is his music fun, he is an excellent entertainer. Since Jimmy Buffett theme parties are fun, Gene Urban has performed magic at many of them. Recently I was called to perform magic at an adult birthday party with a Jimmy Buffett theme. As a Parrot Head myself, I was all over this one. The party had more Jimmy Buffett paraphernalia than I...

magic for greg stanton fund raiser – The Duce

I have performed magic at The Duce in downtown Phoenix since they opened their doors. The other day Steve, one of the owners, called and asked if I’d do a show for mayoral candidate Greg Stanton. It was to be a combo birthday celebration and fund raiser. It sounded like a good time to spread the magic. The party was attended by many of Stanton’s friends, family and supporters…...
