Thank you kindly for your talent and friendliness of strolling around to our guests. I had very positive feedback from our guests and I believe if we have another corporate function, we would look at bringing you back to perform your stage show. You have a kind heart and great presentation. Thank you.

“Needless to say, he exceeded our expectation.”
We have had Mark perform for our residents numerous times. The first time, it was pure magic. At other times, it was magic and music. Recently I was hosting a Networking event for healthcare and other professionals from the Southern California area. I was trying to think of a really unique experience for my more sophisticated guests. I thought of Mark right away. We've all been exposed to magic before. But I like that Mark's style is not just awe inspiring but touches the heart as well - magic with heart, I say, for lack of a better adjective. Needless to say, he exceeded our expectations. Mark will always be part of Villa Sorrento's activities for residents or events for our professional friends and guests.
~Carla Chan, Executive Director Villa Sorrento Retirement, Torrance, CA
"Like always a stellar performance''
Like always a stellar performance. The crowd was eating you up, even the young ones. One of the parents was tickled that his young son really enjoyed and actually understood your jokes. Mahalo nui loa

"It was a great moment I know my daughter will remember for a lifetime" Thank you Mark! It was a great moment I know my daughter will remember for a lifetime.

“Thank you very much for a wonderful performance” Thank you very much for a wonderful performance, which was the highlight of the party. Lots of guests commented on the show. I mentioned to a cousin-in-law that I believe you could tailor your performance to young children as well. We will definitely keep you in mind as we all laughed very hard. It was easy to do business with you and such a pleasure to get to know you. I am certain other parties will have as great an experience as we did. Thank you again!

"Your passion for the art shows through!"
Just want to thank you for putting on a fantastic show for Sophie's birthday party.
All the parents and the kids LOVED it. Your passion for the art shows through!
Please don't hesitate to use me for a reference for any future parents wanting a show.
Also, thank you for the gift for Sophie! Totally did not expect that. She was so jazzed that she could do the flip the rabbit trick. I was practicing the 3 cups trick with her but we still got a long way to go. Thanks again.

"Mark is really funny and entertaining." I got the chance to see Mark perform at a Hawaiian Luau. Mark is really funny and entertaining. His show is young at heart, local boy style. I took a peek to observe the audience, most with BIG smiles, some seriously watching his every move, and others with their jaw hanging in awe, wondering how in the heck he pulled that amazing trick off. I totally enjoyed his show and I would highly recommend that you take the time and go see one of his performances.

"His combination of humor and magic kept everyone entertained" I recently attended our Grandparents 60th Wedding Anniversary in Gardena, CA. Mark, "Magic with Aloha" was perfect! His combination of humor and magic kept everyone entertained, from my 4 year old son to the guests of honor themselves! Watching as individuals from the audience were picked to participate and even being picked myself was a blast! I hope to be able to see his fantastic performance again!

"I still could be swept away by the illusions of magic!" I hadn't attended a live magician's performance since I was a little kid. But it was wonderful to know that even as a kid, even as an adult, I still could be swept away by the illusions of magic! Mark performed at my little cousins' birthday party, and it was great to see that the little kids as well as the grown-ups were having a good time with his entertainment! It was fantastic to see Mark mesmerizing the little children with his slight of hand tricks, and we adults were equally amused by his light banter and funny jokes! Mark's performance has something for everyone and he does a very good job of modifying his to suit his audience. Can't wait to catch his act again!

"The kids and parents all loved the show" Mark performed for our son Crispin's 5th birthday party and was great! The kids and parents all loved the show, especially since it was interactive and fun. We were all suitably impressed with the tricks and laughed heartily at the comedy. Afterward, Mark topped off an excellent performance by sticking around and showing the kids how to use the great magic stuff they got in their gift bags. All of them went home happy and acting like little magicians.

"you'll walk away scratching your head too!" I've had the good fortune to attend several magic performances by Mark and each time I've walked away shaking my head saying, "how'd he do that?" Each performance gets better and better. His dialogue, commentary and magic are a blend of his skills and aloha spirit. Take the time to catch a performance....you'll walk away scratching your head too!
