2018 Holiday Magic Shows

Corporate holiday party for a repeat client at The Swiss in downtown Tacoma

December 2018 was jam-packed with holiday magic shows for parties throughout western Washington. I was at the Olympia Country and Golf Club for their Santa Breakfast the first three Saturdays in December, one of my favorite Christmas traditions. I first began doing the Santa Breakfasts for the Country Club in 1998. Some of the “kids” who grew seeing me occasionally attend with their family. They now tower over me and are in college or have jobs. Crazy!

The week between Christmas and New Year’s Eve is equally busy. Kids are on winter vacation and looking for things to do, so I do several shows for libraries during this time. These shows are always packed, particularly at the Tumwater and Olympia Timberland Libraries. This year The Olympian did a special feature on me in their weekend Entertainment edition which guaranteed standing-room-only crowds. The librarians estimated about 300 people at Olympia and 500 at Tumwater. (I’m not sure how that is even possible, but it was so popular that people were arriving to reserve their spot forty minutes before showtime. Two library staff had to try and keep an aisle clear for patrons to enter and exit the library!)

Mesmerized! Holiday Magic for the Olympia Timberland Library

New Year’s Eve Magic

New Year’s Eve itself included a show for the University Place Library, Great Wolf Lodge (always a happening place, and even more so on this evening), and a private party at the ultimate shop-turned-man-cave late that night.

Client Appreciation Magic Cruise

The Hawaiian Chieftain and Lady Washington drew a lot of views from boat traffic during this client appreciation cruise in Budd Bay, Olympia

The Amazement Productions LLC team of Jeff Evans and Rick Anderson performed on board the tall ships Hawaiian Chieftain and Lady Washington in Budd Bay in Olympia, Washington.  It was part of a client appreciation cruise sponsored by a local financial consultant.  Weather couldn’t have been nicer, and the timing was perfect as it was held on Labor Day and many people were able to attend.  Both ships were full of guests, plus crew, catered box lunches… and beer and wine!

This was a “battle cruise” and the two tall ships left the Port of Olympia under their “iron sails” (motor power), then raised sails and proceeded to tack and turn to maneuver the other boat in their sights to fire a volley of cannons!  It was a real hoot.

Crew provided running commentary about the history of the ships, the method of sailing and purpose of the lines and tackle and various sales.  Amazing fact: there is six miles of line – or rope – on each of the ships.

Magicians Jeff Evans and Rick Anderson were on board performing mingling magic with the guests.  This close-up style of entertainment is ideal for situations ranging from socials and cocktail hours to hospitality suites.  To learn more about adding magic to a social or corporate party, contact Jeff Evans in Olympia toll-free (877) 412-5064 or send e-mail to jeff[at]amazementproductions.com.

Client Appreciation Magic Cruise

Each year Jeff Evans performs magic for several client appreciation events… but this is the first time this has included tall ships exchanging cannon volleys in a re-created naval battle!

Amazement Productions LLC’s Jeff Evans and Rick Anderson performed strolling magic on board the Hawaiian Chieftain and Lady Washington. The event took place after the Olympia Harbor Days maritime celebration, so many ships were in the harbor from the festival.  This style of close-up magic is ideal for events ranging from socials to banquets to hospitality suites.  It’s the perfect ice breaker as people are socializing.  Picture this: magic happening in your own hand as you watch as close as you possibly can!  Many people like this style of magic best.
