In this article, we will give you more details about them and what you can expect when you see their performance. We will go through a few essential ingredients top mentalism acts have in common – and how they manage to integrate them into their performances.
So let’s get straight to it, then.
Who Are The Evasons?
Jeff and Tessa Evason are award-winning mentalists, and they are the two people behind this act. Along with their chemistry, they can blend powerful magic, with illusion and telepathy.
Their show translates into a mind-blowing, entertaining act which will defy any logical explanation you might come up with.
Powers of the Paranormal on FOX-TV claimed that they are “Most incredible mind-reading act you have ever seen!”. If FOX-TV said that, then we had better believe them.
The Evasons not only performed in several countries all across the globe, but they also appeared on television networks such as:
- World’s Greatest Magic on NBC;
- Grand Illusions on Discovery Channel;
- Masters of Illusion on PAX.
Jeff and Tessa Evason are the only mentalists who received “SARMOTI Award” at World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas. In 2003, they were first to get The Mentalism Award from Milbourne Christopher Foundation.
Everyone Loves Jeff and Tessa Evason
These were just a couple of the awards that they received at the beginning of their career. Thanks to them, their act became hugely popular among Fortune 500 corporate events.
The Evasons performed at famous locations in Las Vegas, such as The Tropicana, Caesar’s Palace and The Rio.
They also had shows on some of the best international cruise ships in the world, which includes Disney or Holland America.
Jeff’s and Tessa’s story began in Toronto, where Jeff started working as a part-time magician. He met Tessa in 1983, who had recently moved there to work as a fashion model.
At one of his first shows, Tessa acted as his stage partner, and since then, they managed to get everyone’s attention.
One of the reasons why this couple managed to fascinate audiences all around the world is because of Tessa’s mind-blowing intuition.
During their show, she is blindfolded on stage, and she can guess personal information about a member of the audience. Such details can be either first or last name, birth date or even a serial number on any bill in someone’s wallet.
One audience member described their show as “so awesome it is spooky!”.
Even though it may be hard to believe, their show is not prearranged with secret assistants or audience members. Moreover, they will give $100,000 to the person who can prove the contrary.
The Evasons truly rely on their skills and talent to inspire and entertain audiences. Jeff says that “We are not there to prove anything, only to entertain and create a sense of wonder.”
Great Entertainment Value
Mentalism is mostly performance. So Jeff and Tessa Evason know this well. Their performances are a unique blend of:
- mind-bending magic tricks
- comedic demonstrations
- and telepathy and illusion techniques.
It is this dynamic mixture of elements which ensure their performances will keep guests at the edge of their seats throughout the duration of their act.
So, you will not have to worry about anyone getting bored or wanting to leave the event early.
High-Energy Audience Interaction
Throughout their fast-paced performance, audience participation remains a priority.
Tessa’s uncanny ability to leave audience members in awe with her intuitive thoughts combined with Jeff’s skills in the magical arts is more than enough to keep guests interested.
So, it is not a coincidence The Evasons were chosen to perform on some of the daintiest international cruise ships in the world, including Disney and Holland America.
What’s more, they also have extensive experience performing for Fortune 500 corporate events, as well as campus events.
If you want to get a better sense of what they are all about, learn more about their story and view some of their exceptional talents in action, go ahead and watch the video below.
You will see how although she was blindfolded, Tessa still managed to guess what personal objects from the audience Jeff was holding in his hand.
So that is merely the tip of the iceberg. Some of the predictions showcased in this performance were borderline spooky.
Making Audiences Believe Anything Is Possible
Jeff and Tessa do not claim to possess any supernatural powers. Their power lies in their ability to challenge the limits of guests’ beliefs.
If the members of an audience think about the possibility of a trick being real, even if it is only for a second, it means they have opened up their minds to new probabilities.
Therefore, the mentalism act has had the intended effect.
That is why, as they often say, their presence on stage is not meant to convince guests of the special talents they hold. Their purpose is to “entertain and create a sense of wonder,” a goal they manage to achieve every single time.
