“Dear David,

CONGRATULATIONS!! You have taken my family and friends by storm! Saturday 18th was an absolute triumph and about 70 people were in love with you! I cannot express adequately how wonderful your act is, and how impressed I, and my guests, were with your entire presentation. I cannot visualise there is anyone who could better provide a higher quality entertainment for any important occasion. Well done David. Are you charging enough? Best wishes and thanks again”.

"Dear David

Can I thank you very much for your performance on Friday night? Once again your skills were much appreciated, I have had some super feedback about the night but both you and your colleague get a special mention so well done. We all see magicians on television or on a stage but to see it at such close quarters and performed so professionally is really remarkable. Our token 'Scouser' on my table particularly enjoyed stealing your wallet!
I hope to invite you back for next year as long as you don't have any problems with that."

- Detective Inspector Geoff Quade, Hampshire Constabulary, Corporate Entertainment - Fareham, Hampshire

Just thought we'd drop you a line to say thanks for providing a great night's entertainment at our wedding party on 28th October.DavidWe were very impressed by your whole act, it really helped make the evening a special one.

All of our friends and family thoroughly enjoyed it, and the magic was a major talking point for days afterwards! In fact, it still is, and I'm sure you will get a few more bookings as a result!

Once again, thanks very much. What a 'magic' night!"

- Adam & Jo, Wedding - Church Crookham (Nr Fleet/Aldershot), Hampshire


"Hi David.

Just wanted to say thank you for such an entertaining evening on Saturday. You went down a storm - and my friends (especially the girls - Chloe Victoria and Anya!) thought you were great. You pitched your act perfectly and it worked brilliantly having you there at the beginning of the evening to break the ice.

Thanks again - you really made it a very special evening. Hope you got something to eat and drink - it all got a bit hectic and I didn't see if you were being looked after. Also hope you had a better journey home! Best Wishes"

- Bev Dean, Private Party - London

"His work was just plain amazing. I can't imagine how he does it.
It was great to observe as a participant and also to watch the amazement on the faces of others as he worked his way around the room.
He kept us busy whilst we were waiting for dinner and then during dinner itself."

- Dr Will Murdoch, Dinner Dance

"Hi Dave,

I wanted to let you know how pleased we all were with your performance at our small garden party last weekend.
We are still getting phone conversations from our family as to 'how did he do that?'

Its the first time we have invested in some outside entertainment at a party, this time because of ours son's 30th and his moving abroad. Well worth it and memorable to say the least.

Great job and a terrific talent you have. I hope you enjoyed the conversations after you finished as I noticed you stayed on for a while.

I'm sure I will find an opportunity to recommend you and maybe even within my own sales group conferences when in UK.

My best regards"
