MagicShow2Go - Vancouver magicians

Performing for a Corporate Client in Whistler, BC.

Filed under: General — admin @ 2:40 pm

brewhouse whistlerIt’s Tuesday the 18th of November and today I did the long drive from my home in Abbotsford, BC to the beautiful mountain ski destination of Whistler, BC.

A client of mine from Quebec, Canada was having their annual meeting and this year it was to be in Whistler at the Brewhouse.

I had a fantastic night with my client performing my unique brand of strolling close-up magic and mentalism which I have coined “Urban Deception”. The group was quite small with only about 60 guests but what they lacked in number they more than made up for with enthusiasm and two hours just flew by.

After that they were nice enough to put me up at a beautiful room in the Chateau Whistler with an amazing breakfast thrown in for good measure. Returning to Abbotsford the next day I was reminded just how lucky I am to have a great job and amazing clients too. Clients that stay with me year after year.

Matt Johnson performs at YVR in aid of Autism

Filed under: General — admin @ 2:25 pm

Vancouver International AirportIt’s Monday the 17th of November and today I performed at Vancouver International Airport. I have performed more times than I can remember at YVR and it’s a great place to hang out with the family even if you are not planning on flying anywhere as their is lots to do.

Today I was especially excited to be at YVR as I was asked to perform my magic for children and families affected by Autism. It was a real treat to perform visual magic for these children and see the delight on each one of their faces.

Thanks to YVR and it’s partners for inviting me on this special night :)

Creative magic is the key to success!

Filed under: General — admin @ 2:02 pm

Vancouver magician and entertainer Matt Johnson knows how to be creative, actually he is one of the most creative and entertaining magicians not only in Vancouver but in Canada too.

“Being creative and original is the key to my success” says Matt from his home in Port Coquitlam. “I have been in the full time business of magic for more than 20 years and in that time have built up my company MagicShow2Go to be one of the busiest in Vancouver!”

Staying on top of the magic game is no easy feat with over 100 magicians to choose from in British Columbia alone, yet Matt Johnson of MagicShow2Go remains incredibly busy. It seems when Matt gets a customer he keeps a customer and that is probably the biggest key to this Vancouver entertainer’s success. His customers are quite simply, so wowed, they keep coming back for more.

Clients such as Vancouver Airport(YVR), Grouse Mountain and Barnes Harley Davidson have kept Matt and his company as one of their favorite entertainers for years bringing him back again and again.

This past weekend alone saw Matt Johnson performing at 4 shows ranging from a movie screening at Metropolis Metrotown to an event at UBC, from kids to adults, he does it all.

In the upcoming weeks Matthew’s schedule is incredibly busy with 27 shows booked in the month of June alone. I guess you could say his childhood dream of being a professional magician has turned into a successful reality which is more than ok for this UK born entertainer.

To get in on the action call today and book Matt Johnson for your next event but be forewarned, call soon as he is in high demand!

Magic Show at North Vancouver City Library a HUGE hit!

Filed under: General — admin @ 10:25 pm

2nd show of the day was at the North Vancouver City Library where we had a record turnout for the MagicShow2Go Comedy Magic Show.

The City library did a great advertising campaign for this event with posters around the location and also an ad and write up in the North Shore News. All of this created a HUGE turnout of people eager to see Matt Johnson perform his world famous Comedy Magic Show.

Thanks again to the staff and attendees at the North Vancouver City Library for a great event. This was our 4th or 5th time back at the library and it did not disappoint.

BC magician Matthew Johnson performs his comedy magic show for the residents of richmondHi. My name is Matt Johnson and I would like to welcome you to MagicShow2Go. I started this company more than 15 years ago to provide the very best entertainment for special events.

It’s been a while since I updated the blog here at MagicShow2Go. The reason you may ask? Well, I have simply been way too busy with shows to come here and update the blog. I guess that’s a good thing but it really is better to keep you all in the loop.

2013 was a breakout year for MagicShow2Go. We did more shows right here in BC than any other year so far! That means we continue to be the #1 choice when it comes to special event entertainment for our Vancouver customers and we would like to say a BIG thank you to all customers of MagicShow2Go, old and new.

We were also invited to perform in exotic locations including performances in the Queen Charlotte Islands where the MagicShow2Go show broke all box office records for attendance at live events. Matt Johnson also performed as the Cool Balloon Guy in Dubai at the Marina Side Mall. 3 shows a day for 5 days to excited family crowds in the UAE. What a great thrill it was to be chosen from the list of worldwide entertainers to perform in Dubai, a real honour indeed!

All that being said, we are going to be blogging again on a regular basis and plan on keeping you up to date on all of our shows from now on.

Today the MagicShow2Go comedy magic show drew a HUGE crowd at the Children’s Arts Festival for Family Day. This was our second year at the festival. It’s a real honour to be invited back. I will personally be performing the MagicShow2Go Comedy Magic Show at the festival every day this week. Show time is 12:15pm to 1:00pm at the Richmond Cultural Centre Library so if you are in the area drop by and see the show. Today’s crowd wowed the artistic director of the festival as it was one of their largest ever!

Find out how you can book MagicShow2Go or the Cool Balloon Guy for your next special event by calling 604 788 9046. No event is too large, too small or too far away!

Great advice from MagicShow2Go, BC’s leader in entertainment for special events!

Filed under: General — admin @ 3:37 pm

Entertainers in vancouver, BCWelcome to MagicShow2Go. A  BIG Happy New Year to all of my customers old and new. 2012 was an AMAZING year and 2013 is gearing up to be BIGGER and better!

As one of the leading magicians and entertainers here in Vancouver, British Columbia I am always working hard to make special events AMAZING! As a consumer it is important to remember (first and foremost), when you are booking your entertainment, DON’T CHEAP OUT!

We all have budgets and we all have to tighten our belts in today’s economy but going for the cheapest entertainer does not guarantee you the BEST, sometimes not even close! In today’s world where it is as easy as 1, 2, 3 for anyone to call themselves an entertainer and put up a website it is more important than ever to make the right choice. You only get ONE chance at making your event spectacular! Once the day is over its done and the memories can never be replaced.

So, the rule of thumb, always book the best you can afford! Stretching the belt that little bit further means getting an entertainer that is incredible instead of just ok. That’s how everlasting memories are made.

As many of my repeat customers know, this blog is usually where I post about performances done to date. With my busy schedule it is becoming too large a task to keep this blog up to date with shows done to date so from now on I will be blogging about events and exciting news a little more randomly.

My last post about a show was at the end of October 2012, why? Well, if I told you that between November 1st and December 31st 2012 I did no less than 168 performances you may get an idea why I did not post…lol! I need 5 of me to get everything done these days.

Of those 168 performances I had the pleasure of performing everywhere from birthday parties to company parties, living rooms to banquet suites and theaters. It really has been an amazing end to 2012. Here are just some of the companies and organizations  I had the pleasure of performing for in the last 2 months of 2012:

Hollyburn Country Club, Adoptive Family Services of BC, Westin Wall Centre, CST Consultants, Taylor Park School, Bratz Biz, Whistler Arts Council, YVR, Collingwood BIA, Flexstar, Iron Workers Local 97, Tony Chan Real Estate, River Rock Casino, Back to Business Canada, Ladner Community Police, NRHS, ICBC, Life Labs, White Spot, Canadian Airways, Children’s Organ Transplant Society, Colliers International, West Point Sales, Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, Murray Jamieson Barristers & Solicitors, Matrix Logistics, Harvest Power, City of Burnaby

Add to this list home parties, birthday parties, festivals and more and you can see how busy things are around here. Busy is good, it means that I am doing something right :) So remember, if you are looking for entertainment look no further.

To access my various performance packages and websites click one of the links under the main banner at the top of this page. You will find three links, corporate events, family events and balloon artist. Each contains promo videos, show packages and more.

If you have any questions please feel free to call me at 604 788 9046.

My name is Matthew Johnson and I look forward to performing for you soon!
