Derek was a wonderful addition to my husband's 50th birthday party. Everyone had a wonderful time and raved about Derek's talent. He blended in just great with our guests and took the time to show his magic to all of our guests, several times over. He entertained everyone and left them wanting more. His final show, using the assistance, of the birthday "guest of honor" was just outstanding!!! I highly recommend Derek and would definitely hire him again in the future.
Derek Lavertu has specialized in performing close-up magic at parties, weddings, functions, fundraisers, etc. for about fifteen years. He has a relaxed, conversational style with touches of humor that puts audience members at ease, allowing them to feel the full impact that a quality magic performance can have. Almost every piece of magic he does involves audience participation. During a typical performance, you might see a drawing come to life, an audience member's signature travel from one place to another, or a playing card change while in an audience member's hand.
