Boston Magician Joe Ferranti
Frequently Asked Questions for the Magic of Joe Ferranti
What will you wear to my event?
I always wear a suit, shoes shined, and clean fingernails. Appearance counts!
Do you take breaks?
No, I will work the entire length of your event. (We will discuss any breaks before the event.)
Will you need anything for setting up?
As a Walk Around/Strolling Magician, you will not need to provide anything for my performance.
When will you arrive?
I arrive 30 minutes to one hour before events. I would rather be one hour early than one minute late.
Does your fee start when you arrive?
No, I arrive early to ensure a prompt start that fits your schedule.
Why do you request a contact number?
So far, the worst-case scenario has not happened. (Car accident, flat tire… but I want to be prepared to communicate if necessary.)
Please keep your phone on before the event.
Do you eat or drink while you are working?
I never drink alcohol when I am working… because I am working. I take what I do seriously and cannot have my judgment or motor skills impaired.
Although I am often asked to have something to eat, I never interrupt the entertainment for eating.
What is Strolling Magic… Walk Around Magic, Mix and Mingle Magic?
The Strolling Magician will perform for groups of people, as few as two, often ten. I will move throughout the venue, entertaining your guests.
Some clients like to surprise their guests and not announce that a magician is in attendance. This is fine, as I politely work my way into groups and perform “miracles” right before their eyes.
I have found advantages when your guests are aware a professional magician will be strolling through your event. This creates curiosity and the guests are anxiously waiting for their turn to see the “Magic.”
Mix and Mingle Magic – AKA Close Up Magic/Walk – Around Magic – Strolling Magic…is ideal for any event where people are engaged in casual conversations, perhaps having drinks and hors d’ouvres. Did I mention “Cocktail Magic!”
