Students were enthralled with the performance. John is excellent at what he does and his interactions with the students were on point. Students were clearly hypnotized and the audience had a wonderful time with his show. I would recommend this event to any group that is interested in learning a little more about the mind.
John Bates' stage mentalism and hypnosis shows are versatile. Mindmajik can be performed for crowds up to 5,000, or one-on-one close up shows on the street or at craft fair events. Mindmajik is entertaining and fun because the volunteers the stars of the show, and John Bates gives each one of them an opportunity to shine. That is why so many clients have booked him year after year! He is always respectful of the volunteers who come up on stage, and will not do anything to embarrass them - after all, he wants his clients to book him again and refer him to others.
Each show is amazing, fun and custom tailored to the client.
John Bates was trained in hypnosis at the Mottin & Johnson Institute, and certified by the National Guild of Hypnotists in 1999. Since then he has attended many seminars with some of the greatest hypnotists practicing today. He carries liability insurance for your protection and peace of mind. Although the vast majority of his shows are performed in the Northeast United States, he will happily travel anywhere to perform.
Along the way, John Bates discovered that he had a special talent for mentalism. He has an intuitive ability to tune in to what people are thinking. All of which makes for great entertainment!

"We had John Bates perform for our freshmen during new student orientation. His reputation was so good that many of our faculty and staff attended. The performance was outstanding and the feedback from students was extremely positive. In one single event, John earned his way to the very top of the "must invite back" list!"

“John put on a wonderful Hypnosis Show for our Annual Christmas Party. I had always been skeptical when it came to hypnosis, however, after seeing first-hand my co-workers doing hysterical things they never would be seen doing in public, I realized, this is the real deal! This is a good time for all, and I highly recommend these types of events, as they are fun for all ages!!

"John was great. He performed for my son's graduation party and was busy the entire time. John did many solo/private readings and hypnosis as well as a large group presentation. My guests loved him and enjoyed his show. Not only talented, he was extremely professional and nice. Lastly he was extremely prompt and effective with his communications. I enjoyed being able to reach out to him before the event and know that he would get back to me almost immediately; this was so refreshing after dealing with vendors who took weeks to respond. Highly recommend!"
