This is to thank you for your time you spent at Illusions Magic Bar back in 2007, the opening night was of great success. Myself and Sylvie would like to wish you all the success for the future as we can see that your skills as a magician are very good. A talent for the future.
In 2008 he toured across the beautiful country of Ireland, with fellow Magician & Mind Reader Peter Carroll, which was followed by the Irish Star after correctly predicting the newspaper headlines in 2007. Also in 2008, Matt returned to the House of Illusion as it was moving to a brand new venue due to the overwhelming public demand for tickets.
“Matt was a great help at the start of this new project and contributed many ideas as well as being a fantastic performer.”
Matt has racked up more performing hours than most magicians ever will in their lifetime. Matt is young, fresh, dynamic and has bags of talent and experience. He is a welcome guest to any type of event.
