Sam was a great addition to our party--we had a mix of adults and kids of various ages and he was able to adapt to any mix. He was very kind, easy to work with, on time, answered emails promptly--very professional. I highly recommend Sam to add some special to your event.

I hired Sam to perform at my Wife's college graduation party. He is an excellent performer and extremely professional. Sam was timely and reliable. He is truly an amazing talent and was by far the highlight of the evening. The memories he provided will last a lifetime. Thank you Sam!

Sam was great! He skillfully crafted an experience for trade show attendees using elements from our overall marketing strategy. That experience helped generate additional leads for our sales representatives. I highly recommend Sam... a true professional.

Sam was very accomodating to our schedule and had it timed very well. All guests had a good time. Keep Sam away from the wine bottles (lol) - our waitress actually thought he was stealing a bottle.

Sam was a great addition to our party, and he mingled among the guests all night. His illusions are unbelievable and had all of us amazed! He is extremely talented and professional. He called beforehand to get feel for what we were looking for and he was on time.

Sam was amazing! He was the hit of my son's Bar Mitzvah. I didn't want a "kiddie" magician. I wanted someone who could appeal to all ages and that is exactly what I got! The adults loved him just as much as the kids (maybe more!) We are all still trying to figure out how he did some of those tricks! He was personable and friendly. He even stayed extra time to teach my son some tricks. Absolutely awesome. I WILL definitely hire Sam again in the future.

Sam was great! He was very professional and friendly and very entertaining. We have a small office and our holiday party was at a local restaurant with about 20 people. Sam came during the cocktail hour and mingled with all guests and entertained with his tricks. Everyone loved it. Everyone is still talking about it and trying to figure out how he did everything. He was there but wasnt annoying and was very good at making his way around to everyone. I would definitely reccommend him!

Sam arrived early and eager to get started. His magic was very personable and very well received. He had no issues re-performing his magic for those who had missed his trip to their table. The appearing wine bottle and the Yury Gellar fork bending were very well received (Sam brings his own forks). For amusement leave a few of the bent forks on the table for the wait staff to find. I would and will hire Sam again.

Sam was everything he promised to be. We had a small group of 12 in a nic erestuarant private room. Sam's tricks were clever and entertaining. His opening appearing wine bottle quickly set the mood with oo's and ahh's. He engaged each of the audience individually with well done card tricks and slight of hand. My friends and family we impressed, and he set a great tone for the rest of the evening. He has a nice easy personality and was easy to warm up to. Overall we would say he was a smash!!!!

"Excellent young man and a most talented slight-of-hand man, his routines were poetry in motion. Perfect adult party entertainment, not stuffy and not too over-the-top. I'd hire him again and I'd certainly recommend him readily." Joseph V. Kuca Land Rover Monmouth
