About
Recently moving into the New England area,
I offer a few packages for you to choose from. I have been performing magic for over 40 years. I am currently a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians, and Kidabra, an organization for children performers. I also attend a number of magic conventions throughout the U.S. yearly. I perform both comedy stage magic and baffling close up magic. Children's birthday parties are my specialty usually performing a stage show. This requires much audience participation throughout the show, and ending with a live rabbit production, a very much anticipated part of the show. Close up magic is sometimes asked for and consists of close up card and coin tricks, to name a few. I also offer balloon animals and sculptures. My pricing varies, depending on whether just a magic show is desired, or just balloons are desired, or a combination of magic and balloons. I have spent years brainstorming my magic routines to make them as entertaining as possible.

Houdana was great!! The kids were enthralled! They loved the show and hung on every word! He did very age appropriate tricks for the kiddos ranging in ages 1-8! He also had some great jokes for the grownups that went right over the Littles heads! And his final act left my son stunned and thrilled! It was the perfect length of time (one hour) and his rate was one of the most reasonable I found. I’d definitely recommend him!

Dana was lovely, professional, and prompt with excellent communication with me prior to the event. He tailored his act to the ages of the audience and managed to hold their attention for an hour. They were captivated and he kept them laughing and excited. He is really talented with many tricks and a great deal of experience. We would immediately hire him again!

(Hou)Dana is honestly one of the most accommodating, kind people I've worked with as a service provider. I called at just about THE last minute (4 days before my son's 5th birthday party??!) and Dana was lovely. He explained what he did over the phone but he doesn't do himself justice. He can fit anywhere - he brings an enormous black velvet curtain backdrop and does every trick from silly cookie tricks to a REAL rabbit out of a hat... REALLY. Also good balloon animals at the end! We had an age range of 5-12, 7 kids 10 adults. Held attention well and handled hecklers (read: 8 y.o. boy) well. VERY reasonable, on time. Highly recommend!

Houdana came into our facility early and was well prepared to set up. Houdana was able to work with the audience and have them participate. He is very professional when dealing with our residents. Houdana brought many laughs into our building. I would certainly ask him to preform for us again in the future. (My only suggestion is for Houdana to purchase a wireless speaker for his phone so everyone can hear. The speakers are inexpensive and easy to operate.) Thank you Houdana for some good old fashion magic! We enjoyed it!

Houdana, Dana Holleran, was wonderfully accommodating to our community fundraising event. He connected with the kids in attendance, was thoughtful and kind, and always had a crowd around his table. His performance was age-appropriate and fun, and we have heard a lot positive comments from event-goers. Thank you for a great night, Dana!

Houdana brought his close up magic to our middle school/high school event and proved to be exactly what I was hoping for! His price range worked for our budget and he was highly professional. He initiated contact with me, was easy to talk with, and made sure that all of my questions were answered. He double checked location and times and came early to the event prepared and ready to go! It was a worry-free experience. His close up magic highly impressed both students and adults. Houdana did it all in the context of a dimly lit noisy roller-skating rink. A true experienced professional!
