  • Q: Do I need to pay a deposit?

    A: Generally, yes. Elias normally collects 20% of the total price of entertainment after the contract has been agreed upon and signed by the client.

    For repeat clients, Elias tends to waive the booking deposit.

  • Q: What types of options for entertainment are offered?

    A: Elias is very flexible and believes that each event must be tailored to the requirements of the client or group. Here are some of the most popular formats of entertainment:

    Close-Up / Strolling / Cocktail / Walk-around Magic (from 1 hour, up to 8 hours)

    Perfect for corporate and social events, both public or private. Elias will work the room, boucing from small groups to small groups, introducing himself and performing hand-to-hand miracles close up.

    Front & Center Show (20 mins, 30 mins, or 45 mins show)

    This is best when the audience is seated. Examples: company after dinner, award ceremony, etc.

    Hybrid / Flex

    In this scenario, Elias can warm up the party during cocktail hour providing close-up magic entertainment, as he helps break the ice amongst the guests. Then he can perform a full show for the entire group after dinner or during dessert.

  • Q: How far in advance do I need to book?

    A: Bookings can be taken in a wide range, from some day to up to 18 months in advance of the event. It is strongly recommended that you check Elias's availability as soon as you have a date in mind. Elias tends to have spikes in bookings during the busier times of the year. A few examples are spring/summer with graduations and weddings. The weekends tend to get booked rather quickly and are always honored on a first come, first served basis.

  • Q: Does he perform at children's events?

    A: Short answer, not anymore. Elias got his start performing primarily for children during his teens and twenties. Now in his mid-thirties, Elias specializes in upscale entertainment for sophisticated and modern audiences. That is, magic for grown-ups (and pre-teens).
    If there are a few children (5yrs-10yrs) who are attending your event, Elias can definitely provide some magic entertainment for them as well.
    If you would like Elias to refer you to a entertainer suitable for children, please reach out and he'd be happy to assist.

  • Q: How far does Elias travel?

    A: Elias is a national entertainer who performs all over the continental United States and sometimes Canada.
