Y'know, performing for seniors is a hoot! Hired to entertain for an 89th birthday at Melville Heights Seniors Residence, I asked the birthday star, Mr. Ron Ross, where he would like to sit. He quickly quipped, with a smile: "How about in a chair?" (Instantly loved this guy!!) ... See MoreSee Less

Today's post-magic show exchange with a cute little kid: "Hey, Mr. J! How did you make that dove appear?" I shrugged, saying: "Y'know, I'm not sure! Maybe you should go ask HER!" (Kid trundles merrily over to the dove cage as I'm packing up, returning later to say...) "Well she told me!" "Oh *REALLY*..., well, what did she say?" "I can't tell YOU! It's a secret, between ME and the BIRD!!" (!!) ... See MoreSee Less

What a pleasure to perform a *surprise* birthday show for "United Breaks Guitars" YouTube sensation DAVE CARROLL! Fittingly, over 50 of his Fall River family & friends gathered to celebrate the beloved musician's 50th! As you may know, Dave's performed all around the world, won numerous music awards, and (get this) he was even a question on 'Jeopardy!' The talented troubadour always gives back too, from his volunteer firefighting, IWK charity work, and songs celebrating 'Everyday People'. So, it was an honour for my magic show to receive a Standing-O for his big 5-0! Happy Birthday, Good Sir! Special thanks to Dave's brother Don (other half of the Sons of Maxwell duo), and party planner, Dave's wife Jill! She also sent these kind words: "Thank you so much for giving Dave such a great show tonight! He's still baffled about the trick with the books especially. He was telling our babysitter when he got home. You put on a class act!" ... See MoreSee Less
