How Can The Steelgraves "Bring The Magic To You"?
STAGE MAGIC SHOWS: 30-90 minutes and include magic with live animals, clean comedy, juggling, and LOTS of audience participation! Larger shows also feature one to four stunning "grand illusions".
"I couldn't believe what I saw whenever The Steelgraves came onto the stage. They were so fabulous!" (Gloucester County Legal Education Association Fundraiser at Broadway Theatre, Pitman, NJ)
"As an event producer for the past 20+ years, I have worked with hundreds of acts and wouldn't hesitate to hire The Steelgraves to entertain any family audience. They are energetic, fun, and go out of their way to make sure everyone has a great time. They treat their audience with respect, present a clean show, and work exceptionally well with other entertainers on the bill, adjusting their show as necessary for maximum impact. If you are looking to add some fun and magic to your event, The Steelgraves are an excellent choice." (Ron Porter, Magical Events, Costa Mesa, CA)
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, Company Parties, Receptions, and other social events.
"Thank you! Thank you! We are so grateful to you for lending your incredible talent to our recent York Hospital event....The only complaints I've had from people is that their sides hurt too much from laughing! Our guests were delighted with your extraordinary magical abilities. We all appreciated your sense of humor and it was a pleasure to work with you!" (KC Christensen-Lang, Former Dir. of Development, York Hospital, ME)
BALLOON SCULPTURE is another option; perfect for Grand Openings, Festivals, and other events where you need something fun to entertain the crowd for hours at a time.
The Steelgraves are the producers of a convention for magicians, the Oceanside Magic Invitational, which takes place on Cape Cod in April. In addition, they were the co-creators and Entertainment Coordinators of the Cape Cod Festival of Magic, held annually in August from 2011-2014. Their event-planning experience means they're sensitive and responsive to your needs.
This duo are "real people" and not high-ego prima donna types. Super 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 they can perform almost anywhere, depending on the show you select. Experienced, friendly, and adaptable, they'll work with you to create the BEST magical entertainment for your event!
"One word: WOW! Markus and Angelique absolutely amazed and astonished us ALL. We booked the show as part of our recent Grandparents Day Event, aiming to please both the residents and their young grandchildren...The Steelgraves did NOT let us down. The show engaged both the young and the young at heart, and I can honestly say my jaw dropped in awe on numerous occasions. I have brought in a number of talented entertainers, but this is the first time I've ever sat right down and enjoyed the whole show because I simply couldn't walk away! Markus and Angelique are wonderful entertainers, and were an absolute delight to work with...great people both on stage and off. We look forward to bringing them back again and again!" (Angie Langley, Enrichment Coordinator, Holiday Retirement Corp. for The Woods at Canco, Portland, ME--has booked each year from 2009-2015)
(Please note: if you are looking here for entertainers who will volunteer their time for an event "for the exposure", or otherwise work for no pay--The Steelgraves, along with many other quality performers, will not perform "free shows". Sorry to disappoint folks who think that entertainers do what they do for the "exposure" (you can die of exposure) and will willingly give of their time, talents, and resources; just please realize that performers need to eat, too. And if you are actually reading this far, thank you! Most people don't read the entire profile descriptions here.)
