Amazement Productions LLC’s Rick Anderson and Jeff Evans performed magic at the Lemay-American’s Car Museum for a group of corporate and non-profit event planners. The Lemay Museum is an incredible, ever-changing tour of the history of autos and the people who designed and drove them. Many of the cars on display are owned by the family of Harold LeMay, of LeMay Recycling fame (among other businesses). Although Mr. LeMay passed away several years ago, his wife is still alive and occasionally can be seen at the Museum.
Even “non-car” people will find something fascinating here. You’ll see art in cars. You’ll discover history in cars. And you’ll definitely take a trip back down memory lane, too. It’s fun for all generations, as Grandpa will reminisce and tell stories about the 19-whatever he owned when he was in high school…
The Museum is run largely by volunteer docents, and they are frequently very knowledgeable about the cars and are happy to take as much time as you like explaining details about individual autos or the Museum itself.
Strolling magic, or mingling magic, is perfect for socials, cocktail hours, open houses, hospitality rooms; basically, anywhere you have a group of people you’d like to entertain, but the situation isn’t right for a formal stage performance.
To learn more about making your next event fun and unforgettable, call Rick Anderson at (253) 473-5456 or Jeff Evans toll free (877) 412-5064 or send e-mail to info[at]amazementproductions.com.

The Oregon Coast is a beautiful area, and during spring break Oregonians and Washingtonians flock to the ocean for the magnificent views, relaxation, and recreation. Spring break is also the annual Festival of Illusions at Lincoln City, Oregon, and once again Jeff Evans was requested to add his unique magic to the line-up of entertainment.
Back by popular demand – for the sixth consecutive year! – magician Jeff Evans brought his full-evening show, consisting of two – 45 minutes jam-packed with visual magic, mental mysteries, and laugh-out-loud comedy that kids and adults alike love.
Jeff’s magic has been described as, “clean enough for kids, yet sophisticated enough for adults.” The auditorium at the Lincoln City Cultural Center was the perfect way for Jeff to showcase his magic; theatrical lighting, professional sound and excellent acoustics, and a captive audience combined to make for an exceptional experience. The Festival of Illusions has different performers each night, and not all are magicians in a strict sense of the word. Some of the other featured performers this and previous years have included jugglers, a bubble artist, physical comedians, clowns, and hypnotists.
Magician Jeff Evans regularly performs throughout the Portland to Seattle area. His act is flight-friendly and he’s happy to travel to other areas for theater performances, corporate banquets, and special events. Learn more about bringing Jeff to your event by calling 360-412-5064 or sending e-mail to jeff[at]amazementproductions.com.
Jeff Evans has a way of getting big reactions from people. It’s a good habit: this soft-spoken, short-ish, easy smiling magic man does things that violate the laws of physics.
He recently performed as part of the campus activities at Saint Martin’s University in Lacey, Washington.
“Thanks Jeff, for your amazing performance! The students were all SUPER impressed… I firmly believe you should have a yearly/semesterly presence on campus, as the response was overwhelmingly positive.” -Eric Boyer, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Educational Foundations Saint Martins University
Jeff says, “I grew up playing in the fields around Saint Martin’s University. Later in middle school I attended the Saint Martin’s Summer Hoop Camps. I still live in the Lacey-Olympia area and love seeing the campus when I drive by. This is the only college gig I can do without getting on the freeway, and that’s a nice feeling!”
This show was sponsored by one of the clubs on campus, but admission was free and it was open to all students. As the audience was coming in, Jeff kept students entertained with his short close-up magic with coins, bills, and rubber bands. When it was time for the main event, he stepped onto stage and presented 45 minutes of visual magic, mind-blowing mind reading, and sharp, clean comedy.

The Pacific Coast Association of Magicians (PCAM) holds an annual convention in a different city each year. Typically in the United States or Canada, in April 2019 it was hosted in the Philippines.
And what, exactly, happens at a magic convention? Picture your ordinary industry trade show with seminars, classes, speakers, and a dealer show. Then, make it a LOT more fun! Most of the attendees at this convention are either professional entertainers or very, very serious hobbyist magicians. They make their living by being colorful, fun, funny, and spreading amazement.
One of the hallmarks of the Pacific Coast Association of Magicians conventions are the contests. Performers can compete in different categories include close-up, platform, comedy, children’s, and stage magic. Competitors know what the judging requirements are in advance. Judging criteria includes items ranging ranging from technical skill to the surprise element to originality and others.
The judges are always past-presidents of the organization or very experienced professional magicians. As this was the first time that the PCAM convention has been held in the Philippines, it was a bit of an unknown how many people would attend the convention and how many competitors there would be. Attendance for the country’s first-ever international magic convention was very good: about 150 magicians attended, and the quality of the magic competitors was incredible. Performers from Thailand, China, South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, the United States, and of the Philippines performed in the shows and competitons.
Centralia College in Lewis County, Washington wanted to bring something interactive, fun, and different to their Spring Fling event on campus. Spring Fling is a week-long series of fun activities happening around the noon hour. ASB leaders saw college magician Jeff Evans perform at a showcase for colleges in the fall at South Puget Sound Community College. They knew he could deliver the perfect surprise for their students.
Jeff says, “College students may be the ideal magic audience. They’re well-educated, sharp, and inquisitive. They love close-up magic because it happens right in front of them; sometimes, in their own hands! Because of this, the students are anxious be part of the experience. Their reactions are off the charts, and for all of those reasons I love visiting colleges.”
College magician Jeff Evans is based in the Seattle, Washington area and performs throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Learn more about bringing Jeff to your college or corporate event at 360-412-5064 or sending e-mail to jeff[at]amazementproductions.com.
The time and effort many citizens put into making the city a better place was recognized on Wednesday, April 10, as the city of Snoqualmie held its annual volunteer recognition event at the The Club (TPC) at Snoqualmie Ridge.
The volunteer recognition event has been an annual city celebration for about a decade, city clerk Jodi Warren said. More than 90 volunteers received recognition for the dedication they put into work for the city.
“If you count the number of hours that our volunteers put in and the value to the citizens of those hours, this is just a small token to let them know we really appreciate it,” she said.
Volunteers from across the city were recognized for their work as they were called to the stage by Mayor Matt Larson to accept a certificate. Volunteers at the event included representatives of the Arts Commission, Economic Development Commission, Snoqualmie Fire Department, Emergency Medical Service, Lodging Tax Advisory Committee, Human Service Committee, Salary Commission, Shoreline Hearings Board, Parks and Events Commission, Planning Commission, Police Department, Police Explorers program, SEACAST, as well as individuals like historian Dave Battey and Pastor Marty Benedict.
Volunteers also were honored for the length of their volunteer work for the city. All of the volunteers stood up and sat down as the mayor called out years of service. Slowly counting up to more than 10 years of service, people took their seats until there were only three left. Carol Peterson, Gloria McNeely and Duane John received applause for each contributing more than 20 years of volunteer effort to the city. Johnson said he had more than 20 years of volunteer work, while both Peterson and McNeely had contributed to their community for about 40 years.
