New Meaning to “The Masked Magician.”

Wedding Magician New England – 339-927-4710

Do a Google search…for “masked magician”, I’m sure you won’t find me in the results. Yet there I was on September 6th, 2020, providing entertainment at a wedding reception at the Inn at Woodstock Hill in Connecticut. Wearing a mask!

Of course, you know where this is going, and I don’t mean to “make light” of the global pandemic. But this is where we are. We still celebrate life’s important occasions; some weddings have been postponed and others go on with some changes.

The Bride was making preparations many months ago, and she contacted me for availability… availability? Oh yes, my calendar was empty, and I was happy to get on board.

As a vendor, I always want my clients to be stress free when working with me, especially at weddings. Look up stress and you’ll find a picture of a bride. It is by nature a beautiful day, with potential stress points laid out like landmines.

I was working with a lovely young woman, and I didn’t want to add any stress. Knowing the future was uncertain, I let her know she should feel free to cancel my service, with no penalty and no explanations necessary. At the time of hire, no one knew what size gathering would be permissible at an indoor facility months down the road.

So, we kept in touch as time passed, and we never needed to change anything.

When I arrived, they gave me a very nice mask/ face covering, as all the guests were.

My job was to entertain during the cocktail hour, and as usual, I shared a special effect with the Bride and groom, which they enjoyed while being surrounded by their guests.

The Cocktail period continued in the dining area and the guests enjoyed some hors d’oeuvres along with their cocktails… of course, they could remove their masks.

Honestly, I never thought I would/could entertain while wearing a face-covering… I am so glad to say I was wrong. Everything proceeded well. The guests enjoyed the magic, and I finished with a few more pieces for the Bride and groom.

I know many magicians are testing the waters with “virtual entertainment”… That’s not for me.

Please contact me for a performance by “The Masked Magician.”
