Here, you will learn how to make your child’s next birthday party one that she or he will NEVER forget!

How do I know this?

I have been performing for birthday parties for over 25 years.  I often bump into adults who have children with them that tell me that they remember me from their birthday party which took place about 20 years ago (give or take), when they were a child!  They often ask me for contact info and book me for their child’s party!  This makes me feel old, but it also makes me feel like I have done my job!

It’s amazing that they remember me from that long ago, since I was only a teen or a young adult when I performed for their party

You probably don’t want to read a bunch of what I have to say about it.  If you are like me, you would rather hear it directly from my past clients!  So, please check out the videos to the right of me performing at actual parties and videos of what moms, dads and grandpas, etc. have had to say about not only my performances, but also what it was like working with me to make sure that their child’s party is done right!  That is important, isn’t it?

Some of my past clients have been gracious enough to offer their opinions on video so that they can help you make an informed decision on how to make your child’s party the BEST EVER!

So, If you are convinced that I can help make sure that your child and his or her friends will be extremely happy with the entertainment I provide and that you will be a hero for hiring me, please contact me for a FREE, NO OBLIGATION quote, today!  You can simply click on the “Inquiry / Booking Form” tab above.

You can Email details about the party you are planning to: and I can get you a price quote that way, too.

If you prefer to read on, I will let you know here that my basic birthday party package currently runs about 45 minutes and is filled with fun, amazing visual and comedy magic.  It is very interactive and even includes a LIVE dove that appears near the end of the show that the children may pet at the end of the show, if they wish!  For many children, (and adults) this is a wonderful and memorable first experience and guarantees smiles!

Every birthday child age 6+ receives at least one birthday gift presented by me during the show and is also a special helper and hero of magic in at least a couple of the major moments of the show.  The gifts typically include a magic set or a magic book and a Rubik’s Cube, which Zack first uses to perform some AMAZING and impossible magic and cube solving stunts with!


You can also call me directly on my personal/business cell at: 815-222-4912.

I will be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have. If I do not answer right away, I will get back to you the same day, often within minutes!

Speaking of questions, you may be wondering why I don’t have prices posted on here..?

Well, all situations are different and fees for entertainment vary.  Travel, show length, additional services, (face painting, balloon animals, etc.) are factors that can change pricing.  Discount coupons can be different/added and can change the price structure. Once we determine the type and amount of entertainment that would be perfect for your child’s party, I can give you the exact fee for that package. Once that fee is determined, there are NEVER any additional costs that you did not know about, like in so many other industries.  If you agree to the fee, everything is then guaranteed with a confirmation agreement to the exact dollar.  I will Email a confirmation to you and you can complete the details.  We wiill be all set!

“Exceeded all expectations!”

My 6 year old daughter recently became interested in magic and has been performing her own basic magic tricks at home. So the theme of her 6th birthday was “magic”. We decided to spend the weekend at the Kalahari in Wisconsin Dells for her birthday party, and wanted to surprise everyone with a real life magician to boot! I contacted Zack and couldn’t have been more pleased with his response time and ability to help us figure out what we needed. Although we weren’t going to have too many kids there and our 6 year old would be the oldest, Zack was easily able to tailor his show to keep the small group of young children completely enthralled with his performance AND keep the larger group of adults entertained, laughing, and still a couple weeks later, in awe of the show. Although we were in a hotel suite, it was easy to see that Zack’s show could easily be adapted to any size venue. I would highly recommend Zack for any children’s party/event and could easily tell that his skills and performance would be well suited for an audience of only adults as well. I could not possibly have been more satisfied with the service we received beginning with the very first email contact.”

“Thank you so much for a great performance at Jack’s 7th birthday party! It was amazing that you were able to keep the pure attention of 35 people from age 2-60! Everyone had a wonderful time and your show was a blast. The kids have been talking about it nonstop and we have received several calls from parents stating how much their child enjoyed the show and how they want to have the same party when it’s their birthday! You not only showed us great magic, but you also a provided a funny show. I have not ever seen so many kids so involved, concentrating and quiet at one second, to giggling out of their minds the very next second. All the kids also really enjoyed their magic goodie bags. It kept them busy the rest of the party and they were so excited to show their parents magic tricks when they got home. It was an all around success and that is thanks to you. We have seen other magicians, but you were by far the best. You are a credit to your profession and have an a! mazing talent to entertain. You were so good to the kids and we can’t thank you enough.

“What a Success! Thank you Zach for your patience with all of us running around setting up the party. It started to rain after you set up outside, then had to move everything inside and I really appreciate how accommodating you were. Your performance was extremely engaging for everyone at the party. From the very start of your performance it was clear that everyone was in for great entertainment and surprises. The little ones and the adults loved it! It was very exciting for the Birthday boy when you did the “Birthday” surprise trick with the live dove. That was awesome!!!! Thanks again!”
