Corporate event Magician Singapore

One of my repeat customers My Private Chef hired me to do close up/strolling/roving at a big event at the Gardens by the Bay at the flower field hall. My Private Chef specializes in high-end private and corporate hospitality events. What makes us unique is that they focus on the whole occasion from the menu, custom designed by one of the top chefs in their portfolio. The client was BNP Paribas a French bank and financial services company. They had about 300 invited guest for this cocktail event. Since I can cover about 100 people in an hour I hired another magician to perform with me. His name is Solomon a local magician with excellent close up skills. We have done quite a number of events in the past and he fits the bill for corporate events especially for an international crowd.

Magician Singapore Corporate Event

Magician Singapore Corporate Event

The Hour Glass hired me to entertain at the launch of a new watch/watch brand Urwerk. Since the most clients of the Hour Glass are end customers the audience came mainly from Singapore but there were also invited guests from Indonesia and Malaysia. It was a dinner event hosted at the Italian restaurant Rubato . I was hired 2 days in row and my job was to entertain the clients in between courses. Since I do this every Sunday at the Hyatt it was an easy task. The only challenge was that they had only 2 long tables with about 20-25 guests each. This meant I could only work at the long end doing more off a parlor type show. It was a great evening(s) with a lot of fun people. I customized my presentation to get the name of the Hour Glass and Urwerk in front of the clients again during the performance. This connected the entertainment with the theme of the overall launch event and from the reactions of the audience I could tell that is was appreciated. I hope that more gigs like this one come along this year.

Restaurant Magicians

Restaurant magicians face sometimes the obstacle of smaller crows at their residence performance place. At the Hyatt this is usually no issue since they have an average of 250 – 300 guests every Sunday and in 2 hours I can cover at the most 100 people. However today there were only about 150 guests due to a lot of short notice cancellations and I could cover about two thirds of the tables. At the restaurant I worked prior to the Hyatt. we had usually between 8-15 tables for the brunch and it was easy to get around. The trick was to stay around longer and chit chat more, but that’s part of the job. I believe if you are not a people person you can’t do close up magic. Until next week.

Corporate event entertainment

On May 6 I was hired to provide corporate event entertainment at the Jewel Box on Mount Faber. I was hired to do an hour of close up magic as part of the re-branding launch event. There were about 200 guests and I tried my best to cover as many as possible. It was a great event even so I had to perform outside. It was a hot and humid day (I guess like 90% of days here). I got good reaction and managed to also work indoors since some of the guest preferred the AC rooms as well.Here a picture how the restaurant looks like inside:

As a restaurant magician you often get  requests from management to entertain some VIP customer/guest. At the Hyatt they have private rooms that you can reserve for the brunch with cater for up 30 people. Yesterday I got a request to entertain at one of the rooms for one of the VIP guests. When I walked in and introduce myself the main person looked at me stone faced and said no thank you. All you can do is excuse yourself politely and exit. However the gentleman just played a joke and started laughing – he was basically testing my reaction and the others in the room looked how I would respond. I just said you have a great sense of humor I think it would be worthwhile to include you in my act as heckler at other tables would you mind after the performance here to come along. I got a laugh and he said yes. The rest of the show was great and I stayed longer than usual. You have to think on your feed as a restaurant magician.

Magician on Vacation

I went with my wife on vacation to Japan. In 2 weeks we covered a bunch of Cities in Kyushu. Starting in Fukuoka/Hakata to Kumamoto, Beppu and Kagaoshima. The last 4 days we spent in Tokyo to see family and friends. Even so I was a magician on vacation I still have magic and performance on the mind. In Fukuoka we took a trip to a nice place called Dazaifu to visit the famous temple and shrine there. I had the chance to watch there a japanese street performer that did juggling, magic and the old are of  Tamasudare. The performance consists of a person skilled in manipulating special screens made of loosely woven sticks, as well as chanting an accompanying kind of poetry. The performer chants a rhythmic poem as he or she uses the screen to portray the objects in the poetry without stopping. On one of the photos you can see a basket that’s were he collects the money after the show. Seeing the performance I got the idea to incorporate this in the theater show that I am planning. In the story/script I also speak about my life and performances in Japan and this is something unique. Now I have to find out where to get the bamboo mats and instructions.

Hyatt Magician

Back after 2 weeks vacation to my job as Hyatt Magician. It was good to have a rest be outside Singapore for a while. This week I had the pleasure entertaining a friend for mine from my Karate Club who came to the brunch. He had no idea that I was performing there it was a fun surprise.
