Stories From Previous Parties

“Zach performed a magic show and twisted balloons at my daughter is 6 year old birthday party and did a wonderful job. The kids were captivated with the show and they had a really great time. The parents had a good time too. He absolutely made the party! I couldn't recommend him more highly. A great addition to any kids party.”

“I worked an event with Zach recently, and found him to be incredibly engaging, great with kids of all ages, and he's extremely talented! I was fascinated and stopped what I was doing several times to watch his highly entertaining performance! Recommended!”

Denise Medve

“Zach made my daughters 8th birthday party! He was so engaging that the adults all stayed to watch too. At the end of the party he patiently made balloon animals for all of the kids, some of them got back in line many times. I highly recommend him for your next event!!”

Toni Dereska

“I am so happy that I found and booked Zach for my son’s 8th birthday party at home. The show was just amazing. All of us, kids and adults, were blown away by the magic show. The kids were engaged and laughing the whole time. When he arrived and saw we were doing a Legend of Zelda theme, he included my son in a special “magnesis” trick. He made the party so special. I actually want to go see Zach perform again!!”

Rhoda Seet

“Zach was amazing for my son’s birthday! The tricks were cool and it kept a bunch of 9 year old's totally interested. He’s a complete professional and would definitely hire him in the future! Thanks Zach!”

Will Colgan

“I hired Zach for virtual magic shows for three different summer camps. The campers age range was 6-14, and he had something that caught EVERYONES attention. His tricks were precise, and definitely held surprises which got a great response from the children. Zach was also super patient in helping us figure out the technical side of the performance. All of the campers voted we ask him back for next year!”

“We hired Zach Alexander for our sons 11th birthday party and he was fantastic! He entertained the adults as well as the children of all ages. We were impressed and would highly recommend him for any event!!”

Suzanne Tello

“Zach recently performed at our 9 year old's birthday party. During the entire process from booking to arrival at the event Zach was responsive. The show was great, he engaged with the kids, and rolled with the shout outs as these are 9 year olds they can be a challenge to keep contained in their seats 🙂 Zach was a great addition to the party and everyone has a great time.”

Courtney Hickman

“Zach is the BEST! I hired him for my sons birthday party (small gathering) and had hopped that it would be great for the kids and give has adults some time to enjoy some peace 🙂 but instead all the adults were glued to the show and Zach was entertaining both groups at the same time! Everyone texted me the next day that he was the highlight of the evening! Highly recommended.”

Alexander Tiras

“Zach Alexander brought a truly jovial and welcoming presence to the event we were at. His magical feats were both impressive and creative. He was the most memorable act of the entire show consisting of many other types of performers. I would recommend him for all ages for his ability to entertain with humor and magnetism that is great for keeping kids and adults intrigued alike!”

“I can't say enough great things about (Zachary) Gartrell the Great! From the get go, he was incredibly professional and responsive, and seemed genuinely excited to have the opportunity to do the show for my four year old daughter's birthday party. He was prompt, professional, and the show was outstanding. He showed up a full 30 minutes early, just as he said he would, and was more than ready to go. We had the show in our living room, and had about 13 kids present, most of whom were between 3 and 5. They all loved it. He did a great job engaging the kids, calling for volunteers and encouraging them to participate. Meanwhile, he sprinkled it amusing anecdotes for the adults throughout. Truly, the adults ahd as much fun as the kids! The show was very very well prepared, but still seemed relaxed and spontaneous. He did many things that I couldn't figure out how in the world he did it, and he had everyone laughing so hard we were nearly crying. Parents were commenting left and right about how great he was, and that he 'set the bar' for all future birthday parties. I kid you not when I say that there was a small contingent of kids who tried to blockade him from leaving, they thought he was so great. You will not be disappointed if you go with Zachary, and I found him to be much more flexible and accommodating than some of the other magicians on Thumbtack.”
