"We recently had a beautiful wedding on Lake of th woods. On a whim I hired Alex to be th magician for the night. During cocktail hour he entertained all of my guests and went table to table during dinner as well, this really helped with the wait times. During my speech I thanked everyone, but when I thanked the magician the crowd went wild!!!! They loved him... as did I. I have had so many people ask me for his information. My wedding would not have been as wonderful without his services. I'd seriousy recommend hiring him for entertainment. Bands have been done, and over done. Alex's magic was unexpected and PERFECT. What an amazing guy!!!! So affordable and did I say amazing!!!!"

Thank you so much! YAY!!!!!"

"Hi Everyone, Living at the Parkway retirement community is sometimes not the easiest because you realize that you cannot do all the things you did before. But the Parkway Entertainment Committee work very hard at finding fun events right here on the main floor. Last week we were entertained with a Magic Show with a Magician called Alex Jay Hamm. Most of us have been to many magic Shows – but boy oh boy this show was the best I have ever seen. An hour of magic that was so unusual -- We have been to many many magic events (18Cruises) –but Mr Hamm knows his magic. We were entertained for one hour and a bit and you could have heard a pin drop on a concrete floor. In one word the magic we saw was RIVETING…… I am still trying to figure out some of his magic. Thank you Alex – you sure have done your home work and it shows.
-Norma Mulcair (Parkway Retirement Community)

Zoe,4 "My favourite part was how Alex kept a room full of kids engaged and entertained for an hour, and even managed to get a giggle or two out of the adults" It was a great show- for kids and adults alike. The hour flew by! We were very impressed with your set up, and with the way you managed a group of excited kids". -Christina Dawn ( Birthday Party Mom )

"We have had the delight to be entertained by Alex twice. We first hired Mr. Hamm two years ago for our Staff Christmas party, at which the staff had a blast. His method of personalizing the show to include our guests were flawless. His quick wit and attention to detail kept all present entertained and wanting more."
"We then tried a different concept last year’s event, and to no surprise attendees were disappointed that Alex was not part of the show. So, again we requested that Mr. Hamm come back. It was a spectacular show and the balloons were a hit.

"I arranged for Alex to give a private performance at the brother’s house: I live in Colorado, brother in Winnipeg. This was done easily and efficiently with Alex via email with great success. His close-up magic enthralled adults and children alike. Great personality, my brother said. Fast hands, my eagle-eyed bother said. I knew what he was doing but couldn’t figure out how. Alex will deliver a very entertaining magic show right under your nose and leave you smiling."
-Stephen Foehr, Louisville, Colorado
"Alex Jay Hamm performed at our family luncheon which was a celebration of life for my father. My father was always about keeping a smile on everyone's face and it seemed fitting to have Alex Jay Hamm come and perform his magic show for the family and friends of my father. He mesmerized the children and thoroughly entertained the adults by causing them to second guess the slight of hand tricks that Alex has mastered. To see the family and friends enjoying themselves would be exactly what my father would have wanted."
-Randal Harper, Hardec Forming Ltd.
"Alex attended our Family Fun Day and everyone loved him. All the kids were excited for his balloon animals and creations and he was kept busy the entire time with requests for fun shapes. He even made a bald eagle balloon animal on request! Alex was a great addition to the entertainment for our day and I would gladly recommend him!"
-Jeannie Arnold, Driver Recruiter, Arnold Bros. Transport Ltd.
"When my daughter and I first saw Alex at the Winnipeg Wedding Show we were really impressed with the tricks we watched him perform, and with his friendly personality. My husband and I decided to hire Alex to entertain our daughter's wedding guests during the cocktail hour which is usually the most boring part of the wedding, while everyone waits for the newlyweds' photographs to be taken. Well, this cocktail hour was anything but boring. Our guests were mesmerized by Alex's magic, and as he strolled through the crowd performing different tricks we saw the rapt looks on people's faces. All evening our guests commented to us about Alex's magic and the phrases we heard most often were, "He's amazing" and "How did he DO that?" We would not hesitate to recommend Alex to entertain for ANY occasion, but we are beyond pleased that he made our daughter's cocktail hour such a resounding success."
"We enjoyed a magic show provided by Alex Jay Hamm today -- we had a smaller audience from age 3 1/2 to "adult" -- Alex was able to perform various illusions and interaction with all age groups. We enjoyed some tricks to amaze the young minds and some more interesting illusions to boggle the teens and adults in the audience. We appreciated his humour and ability to interact with each individual due to the smaller group setting. The kids were laughing about the tricks and when you have a 3 1/2 year old saying "remember when he did this ... ha ha ha" you know you've made an impression. Alex is someone we would enjoy having visit our group again in the future. "
-Donna Riedel, Grace Church
"Alex Hamm definitely proved he was no backyard birthday magician. He provided magic that was as good as a Vegas act. His close up magic skills were flawless. He was on time, courteous, professional and above all fantastic. We would recommend him for any event."
-Kevin and Roxanne Kaplan
"We had Alex Jay Hamm perform some balloon artistry at our Welcome to Summer event in June, and I do say that it is an art, Alex is a very talented balloon artist and magician, I would definitely recommend him to anyone hosting an event. It is entertaining for kids of all ages!"
-Marge Penner Golden West Broadcasting
"We had Alex do a birthday party show for our 8 year old daughter and her friends. He was amazing at entertaining and engaging the girls throughout the show – each one was able to participate in some way – the giggles and exclamations of wonder were fantastic – the overall ‘glee’ factor was so much fun – we had at least a few mentions of ‘BEST PARTY EVER’ – thank you Alex for doing what you do!"
-Lianne Paturel and Jeff Moroz
"Alex was a perfect fit for my corporate event. The guests couldn't help but smile and applaude! He did a couple of hours of close up magic and he was entertaining and engaging.
It was a pleasure working with him and I would recommend Alex in the future"
-Karen Garscadden, Karen G EVENTS
"We hired Alex for our friend's 30th Birthday Party in Brandon and he was great! Super personable, quick witted, and very entertaining. I would highly recommend him to others."
"I just hosted my son's 6th birthday at my house on the weekend. Since we only have the one child, we really try to make each birthday extremely special and memorable. Out of all the birthday parties we hosted, this year was by far the most successful, and most fun had by all. If you have never thought of doing a magic show for your child's birthday, I totally recommend it! Moreover I recommend Alex! We had 25 kids in total ( crazy I know) and the ages ranged from 3 to 10 . There were also 5 parents that attended. We asked Alex to do an hour long show and it was the funnest hour for everyone. He was so interactive, funny, charismatic and engaging. His magic was so amazing he left you thinking "how the heck did he do that" every trick! He made my son feel like a million bucks but also interacted with the other kids to keep them involved. How he managed to keep almost 30 eyes on him the entire hour with that amounts of kids, and that range of ages, I will never know. As a mom, and as a person who loves entertainment, his show is a must see! Thanks again Alex- Jasper and his friends are still talking about it!"
"Alex did a show for our Company Christmas party and we all agreed it was the best entertainment yet! Would highly recommend Alex for any occasion, he knows how to engage the audience and get everyone exited and amazed. Thank you Alex for the great show."
"I first met Alex Jay Hamm at the Wonderful Wedding Show in 2015. I wasn't too sure why a magician was there, until we went to five weddings that summer. We got it! We hired Alex for the three hours to perform up close magic at our Cocktail Hour and Reception. The first hour he made balloon animals for the kids (and the kids at heart) Super talented! His magic was FANTASTIC, a crowd pleaser, classy, fun, and mind blowing! Our guests loved having him, and he was the perfect ice breaker. We are looking forward to finding a reason to hire him for another event in the near future.
Thank you Alex!"
"I was holding an appreciation event for volunteers that work with me and I was trying to think of a creative thing to do. I ended up finding Alex from a google search and he was wonderful in working with me within our budget and a smaller audience than he usually does shows for. The volunteers and I just LOVED the show, and found ourselves laughing and trying desperately to figure out how he was doing his tricks. I would highly recommend Alex for events!"
"My husband and I hired him for our wedding on July 16th. He went around to each table during the dinner and everyone loved it! There was laughing and clapping and everyone came up to me with how unique that was and that they had the time of their lives!"
"We invited Alex to perform a magic show for our Laps 4 Life project, which raises money for 4 Manitoba families affected by Batten Disease. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the show and I was really impressed with what a talented and professional magician Alex is! His show was fun and energetic and his magic is amazing! I would highly recommend Alex for a family or adult event. Thanks Alex!"
