Rockstar Magic Of
Chris And Neal
DREAM BIG

The adventure and story of Jacksonville, North Carolina based magician duo, The Rockstar Magic of Chris and Neal. Chris Bays and Neal Chamberlain began performing together as an illusionist team in early 2009. Crowds began to immediately respond positively to the stage dynamics and quick-witted banter Chris and Neal both brought to the performance. Even at a birthday party, Chris and Neal always bring their very best.

Early into their work together, with the hand of God's blessing and some strong business tactics Chris was able to leave his day job in the corporate world to pursue magic full-time. Since that day Chris and Neal have worked tirelessly many long nights and early mornings to create the brand now in place today.

Despite many obstacles, hurdles and some large roadblocks God has continued to lead Chris and Neal in their development of Rockstar Magic. In the early days Chris and Neal performed primarily for children's birthday parties -- which remains a favorite to this day. As time has passed, new adventures have been sprouted where Chris and Neal have used their talents to perform in schools, libraries and churches.

- The Journey -

Chris and Neal are the two illusionists who make up this dynamic duo.

Chris Bays, native to the Jacksonville, North Carolina region has been fascinated with magic since middle school. As a teenager, his family would go on vacation to Gatlinburg, Tennessee each year. It was in Gatlinburg that Chris visited his very first magic shop and absolutely fell in love with magic. Combining Chris' passion for showmanship and theater along with his new found ambition in magic was a sure-fire hit.

Neal Chamberlain's journey with magic began at an earlier age. Growing up in the 1990's, Neal's mom and dad would let him browse through an annual Lillian Vernon catalog and circle things Neal thought were cool. Well, Neal circled, highlighted and put stars all around a magic kit that caught his eye. That year his Granny and Grampy gifted Neal that magic set for Christmas. These illusions helped Neal make new friends, develop interpersonal communication skills and more. Years later and Neal's passion for magic has only grown.

Back in 2009 Chris and Neal decided to join forces and create a powerful magical duo similar to Siegfried and Roy. No fancy theater, flash pots, tigers or elephants though. Chris and Neal's desire was to bring quality clean family entertainment into homes for children's birthday parties.

Through their mutual love of performing and magic Chris and Neal became best friends and were on fire with energy and excitement in creating the impossible. Despite the odds Chris and Neal were laser focused and determined to build out a strong brand as successful family magicians in the Jacksonville, North Carolina area.

Chris and Neal learned the key to it all was making sure kids were laughing and smiling. Fun is fun! And fun is contagious. So is laughter. There is no difference the crowd, community, etc. People love to laugh, smile and share in meaningful moments. People want to briefly escape reality. Whether Chris and Neal are performing in Raleigh, North Carolina or Virginia Beach, Virginia they know the key is smiling faces lit up in wonder and joy.

Within a short period of time Chris and Neal were even traveling to Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Cary and Wake Forest to perform magic shows for children's birthday parties.

Only a few years later Chris and Neal's magic start up was doing quite well. It was at this time Chris was able to leave his full time job in the corporate world. The Lord opened the doors for Chris to finally purse his dreams.

Chris also ran into Mike, of Mike's Farm, late summer one year who inquired about Chris and Neal performing their magic show for the elementary school tours they have on the farm each year. It has been a dream for Chris and Neal to work with Mike's Farm and perform for their school tours. Chris and Neal even have merchandise available in the Mike's Farm gift shop including a Rising Magic Wand and their Ultimate Magic Kit.

By this time Chris and Neal were performing magic shows all across Jacksonville, North Carolina even into Sneads Ferry, Morehead City, Swansboro, Camp Lejeune and Wilmington.

Chris and Neal also discovered in their earlier days that fans in the crowd wanted to interact and be involved in the show. Not only the children but even adults loved being in the spotlight and feeling special at times. With this in mind Chris and Neal made sure to incorporate plenty of audience interaction into their act.

In fact, as the grand-finale, still to this day, Chris and Neal make one lucky child FLOAT in mid-air! This is a Kodak Moment you don't want to miss! Parents are delighted to see their little one levitating in their air and kids' jaws drop through the floor as gravity is defied in this science-busting illusion.

In their earlier days Chris says one of his favorite shows was at Porters Neck Country Club in Wilmington. Neal recalls an exciting performance at Pamilico Correctional Facility not too far outside of Jacksonville. Chris and Neal have also performed for many years with the North Carolina Special Olympics in Laurinburg, North Carolina as well as an event closer to home with Scotty McCreary from American Idol.

Chris and Neal credit the Lord for each opportunity that has been graciously given to them over the years. Beginning in 2012 Chris and Neal have coordinated a summer tour traveling through North Carolina performing in libraries with an educational show encouraging children to excel in reading.

Each year the tour seems to expand to new regions. Now, after 8 consecutive years of orchestrating this endeavor Chris and Neal are traveling to six states each summer. North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Maryland and Tennessee. Each of these states has kindly welcomed Chris and Neal into libraries with their family friendly educational magic show.

Chris Bays, the elder of the two illusionists, when behind the scenes bring much of the business administration to the table. Neal excels in marketing, advertising and often show booking. However, in 2014 Chris and Neal brought Joanie onto the team as their official event coordinator and clients have been thrilled to work with her, she makes booking an event a breeze. Joanie, originally based in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina now lives in Wilmington and works harder than ever for what she considers to be the Carolinas' Top Magicians.

Booking Info: 888-422-3767

Magicians Chris and Neal have been greatly pleased in working with Joanie over the years. She's helped immensely with travel logistics, client communications, fee negotiations and more.

Now, after many years under their belt Chris and Neal typically travel to about 85 locations each summer and hope that number will hit 100 within the new few years. Neal, to this day, is always ambitious and really enjoys the thrill of going non-stop each summer. Chris enjoys the crowds and meeting so many new fans each year however does love some down time too.

Summer 2018 was a particularly major summer season. Chris and Neal were asked to perform and lecture at the IBM Convention where hundreds of magicians gather each year to learn trade secrets and build relationships with one another. Chris and Neal were able to share a small bit from their act with many other magicians and then delivered a lecture on the business side of their operations.

Since the official introduction of the Red Carpet Experience in 2017 Chris and Neal have been ambitious to continue improving their act and making the impossible become reality on stage just as they have done in their real lives.

God has been gracious in affording Chris and Neal many opportunities to speak in churches across the region and travel to some in further areas such as Powder Springs outside of Atlanta and even San Diego, California.

As for the days ahead, magicians Chris and Neal are both optimistic and look forward to many more years amazing crowds together. As they both will frequently say, "this is only the beginning".

Magicians in Raleigh North Carolina performing incredible illusions to a captive crowd of energized children ready to be amazed by dynamic magic and illusions at their Rockingham library outside of Raleigh North Carolina"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

"I just want to say that ANYONE who is wanting to make their child's birthday memorable should hire Chris and Neal. I was completely blown away at the performance they put on in our living room. They turned our living room into a magical stage. The kids are still talking about how cool they were and the awesome magic they saw. I called them at last minute trying to schedule and they were able to fit me into their busy schedule. They went above and beyond what I even expected. You won't regret that you hired them. It's the perfect touch to a party, especially with kids. They bring so much excitement, laughter, and sparkle to the kids eyes. True professionals. The tricks were great, the jokes were great and their personalities were even greater. Don't waste anymore time trying to decide what to do. Hire these guys today and be blown away with their show. It's the best decision I have ever made in any of my children's birthday parties and I have put on quite a few parties. They really do know how to put on a good show.  Even the adults were having a great time and were left speechless with their magic. A huge  bonus is the bunny.  Seriously you won't be upset you hired Chris and Neal. You will feel like a child again watching with your child."
