Magic is one of the most versatile forms of entertainment, meaning it is appropriate for a wide array of events. From corporate parties to private functions, magic can make any event go from ordinary to extraordinary.
However, every magician has a different skill level, and a unique style, which means not all magic acts are created equal.
In this article, we will show you how Eric Jones’ magic routine stands out from the competition. So if that is something you want to know more about, just keep on reading.
Extraordinary Sleight of Hand
Sleight of hand (an exceptional motor skill used by different artists to entertain and manipulate) is one of the most valuable talents magicians use in their routines.
Moreover, in the case of Eric Jones, this ability is essential. That is because his performances incorporate two highly-entertaining components.
- Close-up magic
- Card magic
Using sleight of hand during stage magic performances is pretty rare because magic acts are typically performed with objects which need to be visible to a large audience.
This is one of the things which make Eric’s magic acts stand out from the rest. During his performances, Eric likes to get close to his audience when showcasing his elaborate tricks.
Other magicians would see this as being too risky because guests may notice any small mistake or hesitation.
The Wow Factor
Emotions make events outstanding. Fun, surprise, anticipation, excitement; these are all feelings which translate into guests having an excellent time attending an event.
If you get this part right, there’s a high chance your event is going to be successful. That is because guests mostly remember how attending an event made them feel overall.
Keeping that in mind, you should know Eric Jones is more than a magician, he is also an exceptional entertainer with excellent stage presence.
In other words, he can put on a show!
Thanks to his charisma and extensive experience on stage, he knows precisely how to present and use his skills to deliver an incredibly engaging experience for everyone in the audience.
Creativity Mixed with Storytelling
Above, we mentioned the fact Eric Jones has a memorable stage allure. However, one of the other qualities which make him different is his ingenious mind.
In his hands, ordinary, everyday items become magical as he skillfully handles them. Coins multiply, cards fly and audiences are left in complete awe during his performances.
However, his acts do more than just detailed showcase tricks which make audiences doubt their senses.
Leveraging his storytelling abilities, Eric manages to get the audience immersed in the story behind the act.
