My name is Dwight Redman Sr. and I am a close up magician. My specialty is cards but I also use rings, strings, coins and other small objects to entertain.
Why should you consider hiring a magician for your restaurant?
Table hopping or strolling is the art of performing magic in a restaurant by going from table to table to entertain your guests. This is typically done before the food is served or between courses.
Magic is very popular right now. Magic is making a big comeback in the movies and on TV. There are a lot of touring magic acts and they add to the excitement. Close up magic is more popular than ever thanks to shows like America's Got Talent. Most people never get to see good magic performed just a few feet from them.
Strolling at a formal cocktail party
Customers have lots of choices when it comes to where to eat. How do you differentiate your restaurant from the others? You offer something they don't have. Not many restaurants offer a strolling magician. The best way to use the magician is on a regular basis ( weekly, bi-weekly or monthly) to build a following. There aren't many places to see good close up magic and when people enjoy it, they want to see more. This encourages repeat business and they bring their friends to see the magic.

The magician can help prevent walk outs. When you are busy and there is a wait for a table, some choose not to wait and there goes a sale. A magician in the waiting area entices the guests to stay and watch the magic. This kills the time and you still have the customer. If there is a delay on a meal, the magician can be sent to that table, explain the delay and ask if they would like to be entertained, this helps distract them from the delay in food service.
An entertaining magician gives your customers a sense of good will towards your establishment and they will appreciate the enjoyment you provided for them.
Of course, the magician you choose has to have the ability to entertain your guests in a manner that will make them think of your restaurant when they want to spend their money. I have the experience and professionalism to present entertaining magic to your guests in a manner that will always represent your business in the best way.
