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.
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.
Boston Ma. Close Up/Strolling Magician
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.
I’ve talked about, the Best Magician in Boston, The Best Magician in Mass., The Best Magician in New England, and on and on it goes. Humility won’t get you work in this business. When you are good, a little bragging is O.K., no harm done. The client is happy and that is truly the bottom line. When your claims go beyond what you can deliver, disaster strikes for everyone. Even those not involved. I know Magicians who advertise a Stage Show, Corporate Magician, Balloon Twister, Face Painter, Sleight of Hand Expert, Children’s Birthday Parties, and Gambling Demonstrations. Really! I don’t think so. As an innocent client, how do you separate the wheat from the chaff? Good news, it’s becoming easier. We all have a page dedicated to testimonials. Honest to God, I don’t write them myself, but how are you to know?
The proof is in the photos or videos. You do not have to rely totally on the written word. The best testimonial is the live video. This tells the story. You will see the reactions of the performance. You need not see the entire performance, but you will get a feel. There should be a sampling of every claim.
I am currently at work, lining up some live shots of my work. You deserve it. You should demand it.
Every time, any of us leave a client totally satisfied, they will say, “You are the best.” In truth, not bloody likely, but it’s nice to hear. Keep your ego in check, we’re all the “best” when the client receives full value for their investment. When they don’t, we all pay the price. If they don’t tell you you’re the best, please stop working. You’re not ready yet. Oh!!! Best Wishes,
Joe Ferranti the Best Magician in (insert city)
