But if you really want to take the party to the next level and provide something that will have everyone talking for months to come, there is another option that we believe you should consider. Have you ever thought about hiring a professional magician? There is really nothing like a well done magic show. And we mean for kids or adults. Kids love and we mean absolutely love tricks where they can try and figure out how in the world was that done. We dare you to try this just one time. And we guarantee that it will not be the last. There are some absolutely phenomenal magicians in the Albuquerque area for your to evaluate for your party position. To help you out with this search as much as possible, we have developed a guide that will help you locate some quality candidates as well as focusing in on the one magician that will have everyone at the party astounded and wanting more.
Knowing that you have probably never had to search for a professional magician before. So, you are probably wondering what the best way is to locate potential candidates. Well, we think we can help you there. We still believe that word of mouth is one of the most powerful ways of gaining knowledge. So, start asking your family, friends and coworkers about whether any of them have ever booked a magician. If they have never had to hire one, ask them if they have ever been to a children's event where a magician performed. Your mission is to start keeping a list of quality candidates that you find out about. We would be remiss in our advice if we did not mention the world wide web. Do a Google search for “magicians in the Albuquerque area.” With this source, you will have numerous candidates to check out. Start going through the list of links one by one and peruse each website. When a magician strikes you as someone who provides quality services, add them to your list. When you have a number of candidates to check out, contact each one and find out if they are available on your birthday party date. If they are available, setup an interview to talk about your party and what they might be able to do for you.
We highly recommend meeting each potential candidate face to face. There is really no substitute for seeing the reactions to certain questions and getting a sense of who each candidate is personally. While you are asking the questions, pay close attention the personality, style and professionalism of each candidate. How experienced are they? This is a very important question. Experience may not mean as much in other arenas but in the magician field it does. It takes time and practice to hone the tricks and how to work with kids. Find out how they learned how to be a magician. How many magic shows for kids have they done? What separates them from their competition? Do they have a passion for it? Talk a bit about what is included in their act. Is there anything that they do to include the guest of honor in terms of doing something special? Do they only perform for children? How much do they charge for their services? Be prepared to pay a bit more for a professional magician, again, this kind of act takes years to perfect. How long will the show be? After talking to and evaluating each candidate on your list, one magician should emerge as the one that you like the most. Remember magic is not JUST for kids. Most adults have never seen really good close up magic, but they love it when they do!
