This is close-up magic where Jeff mingles with your guests and entertains groups individually. It is ideal during cocktail hour or after dinner when there is no time for everyone to stop and watch a show. Some people like this best because the magic happens right in front of them!
Some of the advantages of close-up magic like this are:
No stage, lighting, or sound system is necessary.
Each group gets its own show!
It doesn't interfere with the flow of the event because other things can be going on as Jeff performs.
There is a lot of audience participation--more than just picking a card or selecting a number, but magic that actually happens in the hands of a spectator!
Looking for entertainment that thrills groups of different ages and interests? Jeff's Stand-Up Act is excellent for adults or family audiences.
Audience interaction is always an important element of Jeff's performances, so your guests will be a part of the show. Visual comedy is combined with unbelievable magic that people will go home talking about. Be prepared for laughs and the unexpected by adding magic to a special party, anniversary, or holiday celebration!
Jeff can supply his own sound equipment or use the existing system.
Although both the Stand-Up Act and Stage Performance can be enjoyed by large groups, the stage act is more impressive and is suitable for audiences of several hundred people. Backdrops, sound equipment, and computer-controlled stage lighting can be supplied to add a theatrical touch to the event. The stage performance is ideal for special after-dinner entertainment and large celebrations.
Make a difference in your next special function with the magic of Jeff Evans! The best dates have a way of "disappearing" quickly, so return to the referring page for contact information and to reserve your personal performance.
As conference coordinator for the Correction Educators, I want to thank you for an outstanding performance. You added that special touch that helped to make our social a success. I think you had the people in awe! Many positive comments were received.
Jack Blain, Education Consulting Service
The crowd enjoyed themselves tremendously, and many people still talk about it today!. Your show is very professional and entertaining. You involve the crowd and keep them laughing, while at the same time inspiring awe amongst people of all ages. We also very much appreciated the close-up magic that you performed at the tables. It really added to our event.
Gregg Beebe, D.O.L. AIDE Association President
Jeff Evans is as talented a professional as I have ever seen. His involvement of the audience pulls them even closer into his act. Jeff would be a definite asset to any entertainment program for any organization.
LaRay Armstrong, Panorama City Program Director
You put on quite a show--the agents, their spouses and guests loved it and are still talking about it. The audience participation was outstanding-you really kept us guessing what was going to happen next. I would recommend you for anybody that is looking for a unique way of entertaining a party. They will not be disappointed.
Julie Weist, Windermere Real Estate Branch Manager
I can't thank you enough for your exceptional performance at our office Christmas party. The "close up" tricks had people wondering how you did them for a week afterwards and the show after dinner was equally fun and entertaining. If there are managers, bosses, supervisors, etc. looking to make an event memorable, I would gladly give them your name as one who accomplishes just that!
Michael Donohue, Smith Barney, Inc. Branch Manager
Jeff Evans' career in magic began when he found a book on coin tricks at his grandparents' house. He learned to make a coin vanish and fooled his friend. It was fun to trick someone, but Jeff now maintains that, "It's not my job to fool an audience-it's my job to entertain them." It is working-Jeff regularly performs for appreciative audiences at banquets, celebrations, private parties, and other special events throughout western Washington.
Jeff is well known in the magic community. His original magic articles have been printed in magic magazines including Genii and The Linking Ring. Jeff's desire to perform original routines has led him to win several awards at magic competitions in the Pacific Northwest and Canada. Jeff Evans is currently an active member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians and past president of the Tacoma Magic Club and Pacific Coast Association of Magicians. He strives to make each performance as magical as possible for his audiences.
Past performances include shows for Rolls Royce, Weyerhauser, Seattle Group Health, Trus Joist MacMillan, Costco, Pacific Coast Showcase, Sunset Life Insurance, Highline Radiologists, First America Title, Portland Kay Jewelers, Value Ford-Mercury, Good Samaritan Hospital, Lucky Eagle Casino, Oh Boy Oberto, Service Steel Aerospace, and more.
