Strolling Magic/Mix and Mingle Magic
This type of magic is ideally suited to cocktail parties, drinks receptions, etc, where people are standing in small groups. He moves around the room creating magic for four or five people at a time, which is a wonderful way to break any ice and encourage your guests to relax and enjoy themselves.
Each group gets its own mini-show lasting from five to ten minutes.  This is an exciting way to experience magic because it takes place right under the spectators’ noses - in fact, he often makes the magic happen in their very own hands!

Table Magic
This is ideal for banquets, executive lunches, etc. he can perform magic at the guests' tables between courses. Everybody watching becomes part of the show, which sets the mood for the rest of the event and lets everyone know they are in for a good time. Depending on the number of people at the table, he usually spends between five and eight minutes at each. By the time he leaves the table, you can rest assured your guests will have wonderful memories of the event that they will cherish for a very long time.
