We invited The Maestro of Magic to attend an annual employee recognition event on December 2, 2014 that we hold at our Hotel each year. The Maestro of Magic performed some magic for our employees at their tables during dinner then hosted the “Wicked Bingo” game for us afterwards, it was awesome! Our employees were engaged, participated and had fun throughout the show. It really made this year’s event special and most of all fun. I would highly recommend The Maestro of Magic!

The Maestro of Magic thrilled the children with his magic at the White Rock Princess Party. His entertaining style is interactive and so funny. The children were captured by him. Thank you The Maestro of Magic for bringing the belief in magic back to all of us.

Wow! What energy and organization. Stephen (The Maestro of Magic) Kaplan made our event run smoothly with the kind of enthusiasm that added to the electricity of the evening. Everyone was amazed at his talent as an auctioneer, which also gave the final part of our event the professional touch we were looking for as a last impression. Thank you so much, Stephen, for acting as MC, ante-caller and auctioneer for the second time for the 2nd Annual CHW Hearts Are Wild Poker Evening.

Stephen (The Maestro of Magic) conducted the event in a professional and entertaining manner, with just the right amount of humour, and ended off the afternoon with some magic which entertained all the participants and left them on a happy, satisfied and high note. We would certainly recommend him for any similar functions.

"Dear The Maestro of Magic, I would like to thank you for the fabulous show you put on for our Scouting group at our Christmas Banquet in early December. We have had several magicians in the previous years and your show was the best by far. It was very engaging for everyone present from the younger siblings (3 year olds) to the very seasoned Scouter! People are still talking about the show and wondering how you did all those things! Thanks again!"
