Corporate Testimonials

“Zack is truly a pleasure to work with. His communication skills and attention to detail pre-event were impressive. Zack was very accommodating, professional and flexible in meeting all of the the clients needs. He did a phenomenal job of engaging the guests, strolling the cocktail hour as well as the dinner hour. He kept things moving and guests entertained, using humor as well as his talents as a first class magician. His post dinner stage show was amazing and garnered excellent reviews from everyone, including the company VP. As a professional event planner, I welcome the opportunity to work with Zack again and will highly recommend him to clients.”

Birthday Party Testimonials

“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.

— Andrea M. – Birthday mother


“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!”

— Jody M. Birthday Mother


“Zack did a magic show performance for my daughter’s 6th birthday party – it was
a big hit! Zack did an outstanding job of mixing magic with humor to keep the kids and adults glued to the show the entire time.

My daughter, all her friends, and parents loved the show, and several guests
Commented that it was the best party they had ever attended! I would
Highly recommend Zack for any gathering with children and adults of all ages!”

— Jody K. – Birthday Mother


“THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!  My son and all his cousins had such a great time watching and participating in your show.  They are even still talking about it to this day!  I must also say that us “big” kids had just as great of a time.  My sister saw how much fun I was having and asked me if I hired you for the kids or for myself, lol.  I will most definitely recommend you to all my family and friends so perhaps we will see you again someday soon!”

— Josie W. Birthday Mother of Zachary – Cherry Valley, IL

“I went to the Rockford Fall Festival last year and had the chance to be in one of the shows that Zack performed there. I loved it! I was really thrilled with his performance, and since that moment, I was convinced that Zack’s magic show would be a perfect addition to a series of community events that I was planning to have in some rural communities in Illinois. Zack is a great magician and the kids had a wonderful time. He has the flexibility to adapt to any situation and I am very impressed with his professionalism, and expertise. Thanks Zack, and keep capturing your
audience with eloquence, humor, and magic!”
