Giving 500+ shows a year, with over 13,500 performances and a combined 66 years of professional experience, they've been described as "an exciting mix of magic and humor...among the best to work with and most professional of ensembles. It is a pure pleasure to have them as part of our lineup." (Schoodic Arts for All, ME)
STAGE PERFORMANCES: 20-90 minutes and include magic with live animals, clean comedy, juggling, and stunning visual illusions; larger shows also feature one to four "grand illusions".
Shows are customized for YOU. They've crafted shows for Verizon, ConAgra Foods, PaperWorks Industries, Citibank, IDEXX, NH Medical Group Managers Association, Wright Express Corp., American Board of Emergency Medicine, and more. School and library programs are relevant to curriculum or reading program themes; they also offer shows for Cub Scout Blue & Gold Banquets.
CLOSE-UP/STROLLING MAGIC is also a specialty; Markus will delight your guests one-on-one or in small groups. This type of entertainment puts the magic right into the hands of your spectators! It's perfect for banquets, hospitality suites, Project Graduations, corporate functions, and social events.
BALLOON SCULPTURE is another option; and for every hour of balloon sculpture booked they also include TEMPORARY TATTOOS if desired, at no extra charge.
The Steelgraves are easy to work with; they don't have a long list of demands; fees are reasonable; they can be counted on not to cancel your show for a "higher paying gig"; they don't "double book" and leave you in the lurch at the last minute; AND they can perform almost anywhere, depending on the show you select. Experienced and adaptable, they'll work with you to create the BEST entertainment for your event!

"A jaw-dropping show!" --Newcastle Public Library, Newcastle, NH
"Thank you for the excellent show of wizardry and magic! You made our Magical Moonlight Madness Sale and Harry Potter's book release a hit. The 'buzz' the following week was all about the wizard!" --Gayle Gregory, Marketing & Specialty Leasing Manager, Mercer Mall, Bluefield, WV
"I would highly recommend The Magic of the Steelgraves....Their exquisite magic entertainment for our company party was wonderful. You will not be disappointed with their performance." --Carolyn Caron-Stratos, VP, Caron Engineering, Wells, ME
"The minor miracles of magic he performed while strolling through our crowd were both entertaining and mystifying--perfect for our casual setting. He never ran out of 'miracles' and had a great sense of humor while he was performing. I enjoyed watching the amazed faces of the crowds as he performed. I would recommend Markus for any type of event. He was adaptable to our environment and captivating to our crowd." --Devra Holmquist, Executive Administrator, IDEXX Laboratories, Westbrook, ME

"This was a two-hour outside event with multiple activities including the Steelgraves' magic and tatoos. Markus roamed around the area and could be easily found with his bright suit and crowd of admirers. He related to the children and adults equally well, and fascinated and charmed all who watched him. Many a child and adult stood with mouth agape and eyes shining at his very personable display of illusions and humor. Angelique worked non-stop accomodating all the children who lined up to receive their choice of tatoos. The Steelgraves gave it their all for the whole time period. They were awesome! Thank you for those wonderful memories! "

Birthday Party (Adults)
in Westford, MA
"Markus and Angelique were very professional and extremely accommodating. They were very well prepared about the audience and punctual. Both the adults and the kids at the function greatly enjoyed the strolling magic that Markus performed prior to the show and the show itself, that was performed flawlessly by Markus and Angelique. I am looking forward to have them again at our next event. They were also very reasonably priced and willing to travel long-distance just for this event. Both Markus and Angelique opted to contact me personally and verbally discuss the plan for the function rather than describe it in an email. Overall, beautifully done. "

"They were very easy to work with! We had some last minute changes at our venue and had to switch around the days. Luckily, the Steelgraves were very flexible and easily made the effort to come a day early for us. Very self-managed; they arrived on time and were promptly set-up and ready to go. I can really say they were the life of the party and without them our "Family Festival Night" during Children's Week at Sunday River would not have been the same. Both Markus and Angelique had a line of Children throughout the festival (3 hours!)... we actually liked them so much, we decided to keep them for an additional hour then was originally contracted!"
