The Amazing Mr. J - Magician & Entertainer

Thanks to Evergreen Home for Special Care for the chance to entertain for their children and adults with special needs! The first class quality staff, and kind, joyful, fun-loving residents, made for a truly magical experience! As you know, people with special needs inspire a special kind of love, and this day truly warmed my heart. "Children are not a distraction from more important work. They are the most important work." -C.S.Lewis ... See MoreSee Less

For your birthday, have you ever gone on a nostalgic trip/sentimental journey? Yesterday (August 4th) was my birthday, but also EXACTLY 40 years to the day Mr. J performed his FIRST MAGIC SHOW EVER! (August 4th, 1979- Grandparents house in Saint John, NB- 6th Birthday!) By lucky coincidence, I had a Magic Show booking near Sussex, NB this weekend (!), so decided to drive to Saint John with that EXACT SAME BIRTHDAY GIFT MAGIC SET (saved the packaging and everything!), given to me as birthday gift EXACTLY 40 YEARS AGO (THANKS, MOM & DAD!) to return to my late Grandparents' house, where I did that first ever "show". Felt very surreal and emotional, as that long ago day started a lifelong love of entertaining for people, and trying to make folks smile. Still remember all the laughing encouragement from all the adult guests that day, as yours truly (at six!) tried to walk around to everyone in turn, performing magic tricks. Who knew, 40 years later, I'd return to that same house after performing a real live show nearby, wearing full tuxedo and top hat, celebrating 20 years now as a professional magician? (This second anniversary made for a double coincidence, having been entertaining 'Nationwide Since 1999', across Canada from Newfoundland to the Yukon!) A thank you from deep inside my heart to everyone for all their encouragement on this journey, and all the kind birthday wishes. It has been an overwhelming joy to entertain for so many grown-ups and kids over the years. And upon seeing children at Magic Birthday Shows receiving a Magic Kit themselves, it always makes me smile inside.So thank you, Magic Friends! By the way, if you personally have the chance to visit a treasured childhood place of your own, replete with rich memories, treat yourself to your own "nostalgia trip/sentimental journey" and DO IT! And if you have any children with a passion for something- sports, music, writing (or Magic!)- your encouragement means the world. You know, my Parents and Grandparents changed my life that day, on my 6th birthday, 40 years ago. So that's a personal Magic Power YOU have too!! :) ... See MoreSee Less

Fun fact! Didja know Mozart was such a genius, he composed his First Symphony before he was born?! Kidding. (Though he did compose it at only 8 years old!) Didja know 2020 is Beethoven's 250th birthday? And didja guess that MR. J loves to experience the MAGIC of live music, from Symphony Nova Scotia? And YOU might too! (Even the toddlers and babies were clapping along at today's show! And a random audience member was invited on stage to conduct!) So naturally, classical music is for EVERYONE, and if you're not already a fan, there's a whole universe of rich and layered sounds just waiting for you. What an orchestra we have here! Such a pleasure to support them! It's like a whole different dimension of a MAGIC SHOW! As you know, music has that eternal magic power to heal, uplift, and inspire. An honour to share some magical time with charismatic Conductor Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser too (who loves magic himself!) Remember, YOU can always beat the heat, with some heated beats...courtesy of the MAGIC of MUSIC! :) #Music #Magic #SymphonyNovaScotia ... See MoreSee Less
