FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

There is a bit of secret sauce in how Illusions by Vick works with clients. It's part of what sets Illusions by Vick apart.

First and foremost, working (with you) to create an amazing, fun and unique entertainment experience. We email and or speak on the phone to learn about your event and your vision for the event. I ask (and answer) questions to help craft an amazing magical entertainment experience. 

How to meet and exceed your expectations with an experience the audience will always remember. 

All my experience, determination, heart and talent go into creating, performing and providing you and your guests with a unique, fun, sophisticated and amazing entertainment experience.

If after we speak I am not the right fit for your event I am glad to recommend one of 3 very talented magicians 
 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Am always learning and eager to learn more. The works of Sam H. Sharpe have been a huge influence on my magic and performing (as well as the Fitzkie Trilogy, "Our Magic", the works of Tommy Wonder, Robert-Houdin and Henning Nelms "Magic and Showmanship"). There are many schools of thought and great ideas.

  Have been incredibly fortunate to be given guidance by an enigmatic figure (an actual card man) whose name I obviously cannot mention and to whom I am extremely grateful. Also the very talented and respected Denny Haney has been kind enough to assist with direction in the art (and putting up with my questions). As part of my continuing education I regularly attend lectures, some of my favorites being Joanie Spina, Michael Weber, Richard Osterlind, Banachek, John Carney (twice), Darwin Ortiz, Michael Ammar, Axel Hecklau, Howie Schwartzman, Christopher Bolter, and Christian Painter. Was extremely fortunate to have worked briefly with Joanie Spina as a director. She made a huge, positive impact on my work, enhanced how I create and view the art of magic. She was an amazing talent, director, teacher and humanitarian.

  Most of the influences on my work and performing come from outside of the world of magic and include film, literature and music. Create something that engages minds, enables viewers to think and feel and you have created art.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Is this a full time professional performer with the right experience for your event?

Please don't let price be what decides who you hire. There can be a lot of difference between one magician and the next, their abilities and show. Magicians and entertainers aren't interchangeable.
