Strolling Magic

Many people don’t know one form of magic from another. That’s O.K. It’s not their fault. Most have a stereotype of what a magician is and does. Some think we are childish and are only entertainment for Children’s birthday Parties. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)
I do limited Birthday parties in Boston and its surrounding suburbs.

I have one specialty which goes by many names. Strolling Magic, Walk Around Magic, Mix”n Mingle, Close Up Magic. If you know other names or something comes to minds send it to me www.joeferrantimagic.com.
The Strolling Magician does not perform a formal show. I mean you wouldn’t set up chairs and have your guests seated to watch a 45 minute show. ( Although you may be interested in a formal close up show.)
There are unlimited venues where you may utilize a Strolling Magician. These are listed on my services page.
In short The Magician makes his way through the event entertaining groups of people. It is not unusual to hear loud clapping, laughing and cheering. It truly is a good time for everyone involved. No doubt, you will have people approach you and tell you they have never seen a Magician as good as you in their life. ( A wise Magician advises, not to get a fat head!) It’s really quite simple. Most people have never experienced the talents of a professional Magician. If they do again, he will be their “New Best Magician ever.” That’s why you don’t have to order a new hat size.
More often than not, you will be everybody’s new best friend. I’m not sure what that says about my needs for having my ego stroked.
Make no mistake, whether it be Boston or Worcester, no one will put more heart into their Mingling show than Joe Ferranti.
It would be my pleasure to entertain your guests for any occasion. They will thank you. That is a guarantee.

Full Frontal Performance

June 6th, 2021…graduation and celebration for the Senior Class of Newburyport High School.
In May, I performed for the Billerica Memorial High School Graduating Class. Although, I was fully vaccinated, the students were not. Following safety protocols I performed with a mask as well as the graduating class. It was a great evening, enjoyed by all. We made the best of what we had, still not out of the pandemic.
Jump forward to June 6th, the entire graduating class on Newburyport High School has been vaccinated and we picked up where we left off prepandemic. No holds barred, Close Up Magic performed as it is meant to be performed, “Close Up and Personal.” The kids, 17 and 18 years old loved it. I mean kids compared to me, the young men and women are heading off to college at the end of the summer, and they’ll be attending classes in person. The graduates caught a “break” after the seemingly endless life with restrictions.
Of course, we will all go through many challenges as the return to “normal” is not going to happen overnight.
Good Luck to you all, it was a pleasure to meet and spend a few minutes entertaining you with magic.

Post Pandemic?

I see concert tickets on sale for December 2021 at the Boston Garden. Sporting events are running currently at limited capacity and expect to increase as we head towards summer. Other states are already open at full capacity…fingers crossed we all will continue to provide our services safely for our clients.

With concerts pending in the coming winter, I anticipate a busy Holiday season, filled with performances for past and future clients.

Weddings are resuming, as well as graduations and many other celebrations…I will do whatever it takes to ensure your safety as well as provide the Very Best in Magic entertainment.

Sincerely,                                                                                                                          Joe Ferranti

Finding the Right Magician For Your Event

Back in the 20th Century people found their “Magicians / Magic entertainment” through the Yellow Pages. (some of you may need to visit a museum to see a physical Yellow Page Book)
Advertising was quite expensive through the Yellow Pages. Some businesses could only afford a line or two. Ad spaces were sold in little blocks. A quarter page Ad was reserved for the “Big Boys.”
This is all ancient history now; the internet turned the world of advertising on its head.
A website is essential for conducting business in the world of Corporate and private entertainment.
Your first impression is what you see on The Home Page. “Should I stay or should I go.” If you don’t create an interest or have the potential to solve a problem…” poof” they’re gone, no sale!
If a client is searching for a Children’s’ Birthday Magician, I don’t expect you will find a link to my site. I don’t want to waste your time, however if you are looking for an Adult birthday party magician, I expect you might find what you see below.

Adult Birthday Party Magician Boston MA | Mass | Massachusetts
www.ferrantimagic.com › Testimonials
Boston’s best adult birthday magician. Although the magic is for adults, the entertainment is “clean.” Including Joe’s special effect for the birthday recipient.

So, now you have arrived at my website. It should be easy to navigate. (I know you don’t have all day.)
My goal is for you to easily learn what services I provide, read some testimonials and above all see some video footage of “The Magic of Joe Ferranti in action.” (videos are usually 60 seconds) If you like what you see, we begin the conversation.
Of course, I’m not the only magician who provides the services you are searching for. Check out anyone who interests you. Compare everything, but I strongly urge you to compare video performances. Everybody should have some video footage. It’s the 21st century, you can record video on your phone! No excuses.
At this point you should be able to narrow down your choices to two or three magicians. Now it gets real. If money is no object, forget all my advice and hire David Blaine. Back to reality. In order for me or any other magician ascertain a reasonable fee, we need some information.
1. The date and time of your event.
2. The theme of your event…Adult Birthday, Wedding, Corporate Cocktail Hour…
3 Length of service: One Hour or more.
4. Number of guests, very important in determining the length of service.
5. the City, town or address of the event.
Once I have all this information, I can calculate a price for your event.
To be Continued…Booking through an “agency”
Best Wishes,

I will be providing Magical Entertainment for my second year. If you want to donate, please drop by. The food is great and I’ll be there to entertain you. Hope to see you. Magician Joe Ferranti The Very Best in Close up Magic.

Christmas is around the corner!

We haven’t hit our first 90 degree day, but I’m booking my Strolling Magic for Holiday parties already. This truly is a good time to book. It is likely you will get the performer you desire. So if it matters to you (and it should) who provides your entertainment, it’s not too early to start your inquiries.

What difference does it make? Well, frankly all Magicians are not created equal, or at the very least “professionalism” means different things to different people. So Read the testimonials, you can tell the “fake” ones, just like restaurant reviews. Watch the video testimonials. Also if you are on the extremely high end of “spending”, it is not uncommon to meet with your entertainer beforehand.
I don’t think it’s too early. Three more calls and I will be booked for the most demanding dates for my Magical Holiday Season. I hope you are amongst my clients.
