Magic with James M!

June 18, 2018 kscope

A full-time fantasy author by trade (with over 30 years of entertaining readers under his belt) James M brings his flair for other periods and places to his magic.

What kind of magic does James do?

James is a party entertainer inspired by the magicians of old. While many modern magicians are inspired by more contemporary aesthetics (think: Chris Angel’s rock-and-roll look or Penn and Teller’s business suites), James has a charm that twinkles. With a top hat, his signature mustache, and a Victorian suit, his preferred magic is recognizable: cards, rings, rope, and everyday objects that make his magic feel timeless.

What experience does James have?

James began doing magic at the age of 5, after discovering it at a fundraiser local to his hometown. He’s not only been doing magic for over 60 years, but is recognized throughout the United States as an exceptionally skilled, knowledgeable, and experienced magician.

James is New Hampshire’s Regional Deputy for the Society of American Magicians, the largest of organization of professional magicians in the United States.

What kind of parties is he best at?

James is versatile but, like his look, his magic is classic. Children who are fascinated with magic often find him an absolutely mystical figure; adults throwing a banquet or looking for more subtle entertainment appreciate that his signature style is almost decorative. But, of course, he loves everything from project graduation entertainment to college event ideas.

Where does he travel?

James is based in New Hampshire but travels all over Maine, Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and New York State.

Is there anything scary?

Nope! We like to explain him to clients as “old-timey and charming”. Kids often find him more approachable than younger magicians, and his tricks are all family-friendly.

Does James do a kids’ show?

James’s specialty is classic magic, which is suitable for all ages. If your child is fascinated with magic or an aspiring magician themselves (we know plenty!) James is the perfect fit for your party–he’s warm, approachable, and frankly looks about as friendly as Santa himself. But if you’re looking for something else, check out all of the magicians we have available.

Does he have any costumes?

Unless specified, James will come in his typical Victorian magician’s suit. However, James is also available to work as a Rennaisance magician or Santa, both pictured below.

As Santa, James is a member of the International Brotherhood of Real Bearded Santas–the world’s largest organization of professional Santas.
