Two, Three minutes…Maybe five!

I have a very short time to entertain a small group of people before I must move on to the next group. No time to spare, right? Right!

while others debate whether “Magic” is an art…or they want to make their audience feel the “awe” and experience wonder as if they were a child again. All lofty and worthy goals, but at my age and the type of Magic I perform, I have cut corners to simplify my work.

I have seen the magician who’s work is art. (Names are not important.) But my name will never be considered for the title “artist” and that’s O.K. because I will never deserve such a title. I will never strive to bring you the feeling of child like wonder, as that’s a tall order. I will also not try to take you away from the problems of your day. There are better methods than that of a brief encounter with a Close Up Magician. If you want to send someone back to another time, the quickest way to arouse that feeling is with music. We’ve all had that moment when we here an old song and we recall the joy or pain that is triggered, and attached to an emotion we weren’t having a moment before. If you need to get away from the daily grind, perhaps meditation, or Yoga, and you can afford it, a vacation to the ocean.

I will tell you, there are magicians who achieve all these things, but my experience tells me you will see this on a stage, where they have all your attention and the time to create their personal fantasy to take you…to who knows where.

I’m just saying, I can’t do that in three minutes. My goal is simple, insure you have fun and are treated with respect. I want you to smile, perhaps laugh or scream. And finally, if I can get you to remember me, perhaps my name as well, but maybe I’m asking too much.

Ahhh, the life of the strolling magician, the court jester perhaps…in it as a choice. The rewards…try it out, I’m sure you’ll be pleased.

Turning 60…Happy Birthday

So your husband is turning 60…congratulations.

You have many ways to celebrate. You might have a quiet dinner together. Maybe you will throw a party with your friends, either at home or a restaurant. Maybe you can add a little music? I’ve got an idea, how about a Professional Magician. That would make for an unforgettable event.

I know what you are thinking; you are a Magician you’re just trying to sell your services. Well yes, I’m not so much selling as suggesting a consideration of what I can provide. There is no doubt that any of the above suggestions would be a good time. Nobody would even suggest that something was missing, because nothing was. So why bring Joe Ferranti, one of the top Magicians in Boston to your celebration? Gee, I want to remain humble, of course it would be wrong for me to tell you I can make a difference. So I won’t, just listen to my clients.

It would have just been a “nice dinner” without you, but you took it up to the highest level of fun, with your showmanship and professionalism (not to mention, great sense of humor). You made all of the age groups at the party enjoy our very special evening, by giving each and every guest special attention. Again, thanks so much for the life-long wonderful memory. That’s really nice; I couldn’t have put it better without sounding like I have a fat head. You were so professional, prompt, kind, and fun! We all truly enjoyed your show and you! Thank you for making our sons milestone birthday a great one!

How about…
Joe is by far one of the best magicians in this area.
That was really sweet, anymore?
We hired Joe for my husband’s 60th birthday party and we are so glad we did!
OMG, this guy is great! But there is more…
Thank you so very much for working your magic at my husband’s party. Everyone, and I mean everyone loved watching you do your craft! You added that something special to the event!
I’m starting to get tears in my eyes.
Mr. Ferranti really made my best friend’s birthday unique, fun and really special. I would certainly recommend him to anyone.
My goodness, now I see it…you take it to a different level.
Right, but how could I say that about myself?

Halloween, Birthdays, Christmas, New Year’s Eve and Birthdays

I just heard that retailers make 40% of their sales during the Holidays. I don’t keep percentages,
But I know Magic performances have been nonstop. I’ve been to Portsmouth N.H., Manchester Ma. , Haverhill, Needham, and of course Boston. (And many more.)

Two days after Christmas I have back to back performances. Thank goodness the times didn’t clash. I can’t turn down a repeat client. In this business they become friends.

This is an enjoyable season with many celebrations. Speaking outside of entertainment, I’ve never been to a celebration that wasn’t a fun time. Most social occasions are naturally cheerful, but when you add a professional Magical entertainer, the event very well may become a lasting memory. I have heard from couples, how a souvenir from me is in their Wedding Album. Others have shown me that they carry around a playing card from a past performance. I receive so much more than money from my clients. Thank you for a great year, and I can’t wait to meet new friends in 2015.
