"It was a great success. Parents told me afterwards that they enjoyed the performance. Throughout the show kids were laughing and clapping and enjoying their magic tricks and slapstick gags. A beautiful white rabbit played a role in the magic, and it was high energy and engaging. The music was catchy and attention grabbing, and Chris and Neal made it a point to use "reverse psychology" to encourage kids to check out magic books, and they added many positive slogans to their routine touting a library card as their favorite card, encouraging kids to achieve in life by reading, etc. Thank you Chris and Neal!" - Rosey Clark (Smith Mountain Lake VA Public Library)
"The Rockstar Magic of Chris and Neal was terrifically entertaining with great illusions, fantastic attitude and message, easy and professional set-up and a lot of library love! We had over 200 school aged children from various summer camps across Catawba county and they were enthusiastic from start to finish. The set and the music got their attention, the illusions amazed and entertained them, and they were enthralled by the whole experience. Thanks so much for a great magic show!" - Carole Dennis (Hickory Public Library, Ridgeview Branch)
"We all loved your performance! Many parents said it was awesome and thanked Jamestown Public Library for hosting your magic show. We were all very glad the fire marshal didn't show up for an inspection that day; our auditorium was overflowing with children and parents. Thanks for such a great start to our summer reading program, as well as the life lessons." Carole Reed (Jamestown Public Library)
"Never to old for a lil magic. Summer Reading Program Rocks at Kenly Public Library. With the right attitude a little courage, determination,and perseverance there will never be an obstacle that can keep you from your dreams coming true." Vickie Johnson (Kenly Public Library)
"Rockstar Magic with Chris and Neal had kids and parents alike staring in wonder as they opened the summer reading program at the Jamestown Public Library with their amazing feats of magic and illusion. From a rabbit disappearing from one container and appearing in another to the levitation of a girl from the audience, the show was fast paced and exciting. Of course, Chris and Neal were quick to tell the audience that they could make their own kind of magic with books that could both entertain and inform. The two encouraged all the kids to check out a book before leaving the library and to read throughout the summer." Norma Dennis - Jamestown News (Jamestown Public Library)

"Carolina's Most Popular Magicians"
The North Carolina based PeeDee Post recently titled Chris & Neal as "Carolina's Most Popular Magicians", and their enthusiastic client/fan base seems to agree! Read more information HERE. Chris & Neal performed in Rockingham on October 30th, 2014 at the Leath Memorial Public Library fall event. The turnout, well exceeding 500 children and parents, was more than expected. In fact, many parents were urged to leave the room in an effort to accommodate more children. Clearly, the magic show was a BIG success.
Kevin Spradlin of the PeeDee Post said through the use of their live doves, and rabbit, coupled with "upbeat music and an engaging set of personalities, Chris and Neal helped the audience through the 50-minute show with a flair for the dramatic", Spradlin continued, "Chris and Neal wow the crowd with rockstar magic you have to see to believe."

Powerful. Positive. Encouraging.
"Thanks Chris and Neal for the super-fun magic program! You packed the room full of excited summer readers. I truly appreciate the level of professionalism and the high quality of programming you delivered. Your relationship to the audience was a hit! The live animals, science facts, and rockin' soundtrack kept the audience amazed, astounded, engaged and enthusiastic! An outstanding performance!" — Keith Hayes (Children's Librarian - Cary, NC).
Totally Awesome & Entertaining!
"The Rockstar Magic Show presented for McColl School students in July was totally awesome!! Our library has engaged magic performers before, but your show was by far the most professional, the most entertaining, the most energetic, all the while interjecting science facts and information in an engaging way. The students absolutely loved the performance as did the staff. Marlboro County is such a rural county with transportation a problem for many. Being able to take your show to the one school already in session was a big part of our outreach summer reading program. You talked about libraries and the importance of reading and we were able to get the name of the public library out there through you. A few days after your performance, one of the principals called me and thanked us profusely for sharing our programming with McColl students through your performance. They are making a huge banner to display at the school and will also share one with us." Virginia McCraw — Marian Wright Edelman Public Library

Energy & Showmanship Are Fantastic!

Their set up is quite elaborate so they dedicate a lot of time to each performance. Their energy and showmanship are fantastic. They earn every penny!" — Sally Baron
