"We wanted to thank you again for your presence and magic at Ethan's Bar Mitzvah this past weekend. You have a calm, friendly manner and you let your magic speak for itself. Our guests just loved you. The looks on the kids' faces and their comments told us they were just astounded. Ethan told me that if we ever have another event in our future, hiring you is a must! All the best!" - Stephanie and Larry Weiner (Bar Mitzvah parents)
