Magic Show - Birthday Party Info - Nashville

Planning on having a Birthday party! Are you ready to have a blast ??!!

For birthday Parties we usually have the magic show first.
This gives your guests a chance to laugh and get acquainted with their surroundings. The Magic Show usually lasts around 45 minutes or so and is filled with Lots of Comedy, 2 Doves and at the end a Rabbit (don't tell the kids!! Let's make it a surprise!) Each time an animal appears we give the Kids some time to come up and pet the animal and pose for a Photo,,,,We also try for Group Photos, which sometimes are very hard, but we try!
(Some photos actually turn out Frame-able!) (the show is suitable for adults too, the parents will get a kick out of watching the kids!)

So, after the Show the group goes to Celebrate by singing and cake or they start the Birthday Games,,,,,whichever happens, I will follow and make Balloon Sculptures while the kids are doing other activities. By the time the other activities are done I will have made enough Balloon Sculptures to make everyone happy.

Sooo, with the Birthday Package you will receive:
-A 45 to 60 Minute Magic Show (Complete with 2 doves and Rabbit)
-and 60 Minutes of Balloon Sculpting.

All times are approximate, some Audiences will sit longer than others and some will only sit for 30 minutes….I try and Cater to the Children and what they want to do….Most Birthdays have under 25 Children, if there are more we can make arrangements….

This is the usual set-up for Most Parties and if you would require
something different for your Party I AM VERY FLEXIBLE, AND CAN WORK

If you are in Davidson County (Tennessee) or in a County touching
Davidson there are no travel charges,,,,

Total Price : $ 175.00 to $ 200.00

This is something your child will remember for many years to come!
Plan on having Magic at your next Party!!!!!

Balloon Animal Events and Parties - Nashville

Ready for the Balloon Animals! If you have a large group and just want balloon animals for your entertainment, I can help !! My balloons animals are simple yet effective! They take a short time to make (which means the lines go quicker) and are very much loved by all the children! A lot of churches hire me to make balloons for their fall festivals or summer carnivals. Normally I bring a music player and the rabbit along with the balloons....the rabbit gives the kids something to do while they are waiting in line and the music also gives everyone something to listen to while waiting for their balloon. If I have a table I can place a photo book on it for the kids to look at and decide which balloon they would like to have made, or I can bring a magnetic board and put photos on the board with balloon animals for the kids to choose from.

The balloon making can go on for 2 to 3 hours depending upon the time of your event and your preferences. Pricing for this is really dependent upon how many balloons and how much time involved....Usually, most events are $75 to 00 per hour...Call or text for availability or price quote or any other questions you may have on your event.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I have the Magic Show outside?
Yes, just plan for the show to be in the shade and all is good.

How much does the Birthday Party Magic Show cost?
Birthdays are $ 175 to $ 200 and all other events call for pricing.
$200 if the crowd is a bit larger (above 25)

What do I get with the Birthday party package?
You get a one hour show and one hour of balloon making. I do not charge by the hour on Birthdays, I charge by the event so if I stay longer at your Birthday, don't worry, no extra charge.

Can I have the Rabbit at my show?
The rabbit goes to all Birthdays and private events but if your event is "Open to the Public" the rabbit is not allowed. If you prefer not to have the doves and rabbit at the show you can opt out of the animals.

How many children can I invite?
Most typical parties have 15 to 25 kids and that is usually for the Birthdays, other events will vary. Just give me a round about head count so that I can plan accordingly (with balloon making and the show).

How much is the deposti?
None. I do not take a deposit nor do I collect any money until you are 100% satisfied!

Can I video tape the show?
Yes, please do! It will be a great memory for you and your children.

How long should I plan the party to be?
If you are doing a Birthday party you need a minimum of 2 hours. If you have games or crafts for the kids you may need more time than that.

Can my church or school afford a show?
Yes! I work with churches and schools and any organization that doesn't have a Millionaire budget... most larger groups are around $250 for the show only.

How far in advance do I have to book the event?
The sooner you call the better. But, if I'm available and you need a show tomorrow, I'll be there!!

Can you come and just do Balloon Animals at my party?
Yes, no problem, it's $ 75 to $ 100 per hour for just Balloon Animals.

Do you charge for travel?
If you are in Davidson County (Tennessee) or in a County touching Davidson there are no travel charges,,,, 

Family Show Magic Entertainment

For 11 years I was the Magician for Opryland USA Theme Park and I was proud to present a show that could be viewed by all and none to worry about the show being anything but rated G. !!!!! All shows (even a show planned for adults) are viewable by any age at any time.

When the adults are staying for the show I usually ask that you let the children sit on the floor and the adults sit in chairs around the outside. This allows for the Mom's to still be close to their child but still have the comfort of a chair with a back on it!!!

Usually for a "Family" type audience with all ages the show will go somewhere around 45 minutes with as much laughter as I can put into it ! That is the goal: MAGIC AND LAUGHTER !!

My show is perfect for churches, festivals, family gatherings, company picnics any occasion where you have an audience that is ready to laugh and be amazed !!!!

If the crowd is larger than 50 or 60 people let me know in advance and we can arrange a microphone to assure that everyone can hear properly........Looking forward to the show !!!!!


Corporate Shows, Picnics, Schools, Churches, Daycares Info

If you have a large group to amaze, I'll be ready! Corporate Magic Shows, Daycares, Schools, Churches or basically any show where there are 40 or 50 people ..I usually have around 30 to 40 people at the Birthdays and anything larger usually needs a microphone and a little more time for the Balloon Animals after the show so I allow more time. You don't have to include the Balloon Animals, I can just do the show if you're group is really large:)

The Birthdays start at 75 and the larger shows start at $250 so there really isn't that much difference except I need more time for set up and more time for Balloon Animals.

At the larger events I can do the Balloons before or after the show, whichever seems to fit your schedule the best. If the Balloons go after the show, the kids seem to have them longer and
