Awards Presentation Entertainment Made the Event Even More Special
Thank you for making our special event even more special! Your impromptu interactions during the coffee hour were wonderful and your opening act got everyone in a happy spirit for our
awards presentation. Your stage show was amazing. We are still hearing about you, your magic and your humor.
What a pleasure it was working with you from our initial phone call to your final act. You were professional, accommodating and friendly. We couldn’t have asked for more.
We look forward to having you at future events.
Thank you very much, Magic Man!!

Thank you for being part of the Arthritis Foundation’s Jingle Bell Run Top Fundraiser Party at Hollywood Casino recently.
Our guests were texting me before I made it home to tell me how much fun they had at the event.
It’s great to see how you engage with the guests and make them feel special. We will definitely be calling you for our event next year.

Thank you for making our corporate party at the Gateway Center in Collinsville a raving success. Our office staff and field personnel attended the event and they are still talking about your performance.
Your combination of comedy and magic is awesome. From the beginning, while you were mingling during the cocktail hour, you made your performance so personal. I had several people
tell me they were sorry when the cocktail hour ended because they thought that was the end of your engagement. Were they surprised to see you reappear after dinner!
Your onstage performance was nothing short of electrifying (so appropriate for an electrical contracting firm).
You were a pleasure to work with from the initial booking process through the final act. I enjoyed meeting you and I look forward to working with you at future events.

As an organization that always strives to bring fun, and unique entertainment to our Annual Awards and Installation Banquet, the decision to hire Steve for this year’s event was a top-notch choice.
We’ve received nothing but positive comments from our investors, many saying it was the most fun they had in months.
Initially, we were in search of a comedian for this years event, however, Steve’s mind blowing magic tricks, combined wit his incredibly comical personality, truly made it a night we will remember for many years to come.
We will definitely recommend his show to others, and consider him for future events!
Thanks you so much Steve, for providing us with phenomenal entertainment!

We hired Steve Barcellona for our company holiday party and he was excellent! His show was very fun and audience engaging which is exactly what we wanted. Also, the material was very professional and appropriate. Because of it being a company event we didn’t want any profanity or off-colored jokes. His overall presentation was extremely well received and his overall appearance was professional. Loved the way he mingled with the crowd before the show. It helped make the guests feel comfortable and it was a personal touch which made the guests feel connected when it came time
for the show.
The employees were still talking about him in the office the following Monday. We will definitely recommend Steve and will consider hiring him again for future events.
Thanks, Steve, for making the night fun, enjoyable and memorable!!

I would like to thank you for coming all the way to Burlington to put on our New Year’s Eve show! Everything was wonderful. You were always so friendly and easy to work with, not to mention hilarious and what a great magic show! All of our 130 guests had a spectacular time and we are still receiving compliments on what a great evening it was. They felt that the strolling magic really made them feel like a part of the evening as well. We would highly recommend you to anyone, so please feel free to use us as a reference needed. Again thank you for a true evening of comedy and magic. It was fabulous!

A big thank you for coming out to entertain the seniors of Dardenne Prairie at our August lunch . Everyone had a great time. You have a feel for your audience and definitely know how
to work the room and what will work for the crowd. No one left the building without a smile. As they left I received many compliments about what a great show it was, how that was just
what they needed, and that you were the best comedian/magician they had ever seen. I would personally recommend Steve Barcellona over and over again. This event will be difficult to top.

Hello and hope this letter finds you doing well. I just wanted to drop you a line and THANK YOU so much for the entertainment on Friday evening for my office Christmas Party. What a good time! You were able to mix into the crowd during the social hour and break the ice with the guests and make the laughs begin. And the after dinner spotlight was outstanding, don’t think I could of done much better as a host. I have heard so many compliments about the entertainment that I chose and the many Thanks that I have received for a great night. I would recommend your show to anyone with confidence. So a big THANK YOU goes out to you and I wish you the very best. Should you ever need a reference, point them in my direction.
May you and your family have a blessed holiday season.
When I started looking for entertainment possibilities for our annual sales meeting several months ago, I came across a couple of entertainment companies with non-exceptional service – delayed or no return phone calls is extremely off putting, especially when I have many other things to worry about. Your response and follow up was right on target and as soon as I saw your video, I knew you were the one to close out our meeting with lots of fun and laughter.
The people attending our meeting comprises a broad range of age, background, and come from various places across the country. So, trying to put together entertainment that will get everyone involved and make sure everyone has a great time, can be difficult – but you pulled it off! I received several thumbs up signs during and after the show, along with several “nice jobs”. Although, the most telling reaction is always the smile and laughter coming from all corners of the room during the show or the abrupt sounds of laughter during the reception prior to the show.
I could not be more pleased with how the evening progressed. When putting these meetings together, I always strive to work with people who will put me at ease and not worry me about not showing, or showing up late or not being what was expected. I was completely at ease before getting to St, Louis after the many conversations we had prior to the meeting.
You did a great job dazzling our folks with your magic and kept us laughing far longer than your performance. Our people enjoyed being part of the show and your closing performance had everyone rolling on the floor wiping tears of laughter from their eyes…myself included.
It was a pleasure meeting you and doing business with you. I would recommend your services to anyone looking for a little fun and a touch of magic.

We were very pleased with your presentation at our holiday gathering December 7th, 2011. I heard folks talking about it in our office today (How did he do that?) and everyone had a great time. You are very talented. I really liked the way you brought some of us “on stage” to participate in your act. This really made it enjoyable. You made it great even if the venue did not have a stage or a specific area for you to work in. You made it happen. thank you so much for a most enjoyable experience!
We Invited Steve after a personal testimonial from one of our staff who had attended one of his performances at another event. This was for our annual Christmas celebration for an audience of around 145, made up of our company staff and board members.
I found Steve to be very personable and easy to work with in arranging for the event. Our staff responded well to Steve’s performance, especially after getting to know him more personally as he went from table to table during the lunch demonstrating his expertise with a deck of cards. He is upbeat, constantly on the move, with no breaks once he started. His skill combined with his sense of humor make a great combination that was well received by our group.
I would heartily recommended Steve and Magic on the Menu.

Recently the Crowne Plaza Hotel St. Louis had the pleasure of having magician extraordinaire Steve Barcellona for our holiday party entertainment. Wow! He completely exceeded our expectations.
Knowing Mr. Barcellona I was not surprised that he was an excellent magician, I was not however prepared for the enormous positive impact he had on our event. It is not just the great magic but how he works the room and gets everyone involved. Many of the guests wanted to know where they could see him perform again. He entertained and astonished everyone and where ever he strolled the laughter and amazed expressions followed. Steve’s vast repertoire and quick wit really made our event special. I am still hearing comments about him from people that were there.
Steve was a pleasure to work with. Arriving early and staying past his contracted time, he was the consummate professional. I will continue to highly recommend Steve to anyone looking for a fun and entertaining way of upgrading an event and providing an authentic crowd pleaser, guaranteed to keep you smiling.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
