"Vick was a pleasure to work with leading up to the event.
He answered all emails quickly and thoroughly and was incredibly helpful.
He was encouraging of my ideas, and helped build the idea of
his performance to make it fit well with our company and our event.
He arrived early, and felt like an old friend. He was a pleasure to work with,
and again interested in hearing about what was happening at the event.
He worked our tradeshow and our evening party, and both were exceptional.
He was independent, and exciting, I had great feedback
and saw a crowd around him constantly.
I definitely recommend Vick!
He adds a fun flair, and is a lovely person, and very talented."

"Vick was truly amazing. He kept 55, 7-8 yr olds constantly entertained.
He engaged them visually, as well as verbally.
He included different students in each of his performances.
They felt like real magicians. All they talked about is being a magician.
The best thing a teacher can hear from her students the day before
the last day of school is they can't wait to go to the library to get a BOOK on magic.
Hope to see you next year."

" ..... Your unique and dignified approach touched me in a way that most magicians don't.
The near macabre but lovely delivery of illusion you employ is almost Tim Burton-esque on the surface,
but simultaneously filled with so much heart that all of the departed classically trained magicians surely
must be looking over your shoulder each time you extract a sense of wonder in the wry smiles of your audience.
Thank you, Vick, for truly making my day special and bringing a true sense of wonder alive again in me."
"I could not have asked for a better performer for our fundraiser.
Vick was simply outstanding - so good that we've already decided
to have him back again next year.
He is incredibly patient, amazingly talented,
and fantastically skilled at entertaining children and adults simultaneously.
Thanks, Vick, for a GREAT time!"

Dear Professor Snape A.K.A. Vick Gisin,
Thank you, Professor Snape for performing your magic at Howard County Library,
More Muggle Midnight Madness was a hit with over 650 attendees
Everyone was impressed with Professor Snape and his feats of magic.
They raved about how realistic the evening was and their encounters
with you only made them feel more like a part of Hogwarts.
Everyone was asking about Professor Snape and his true identity
Thank you for your time and dedication helping to make this evening a success.
We look forward to your future magic show at various Howard County Library Branches this fall

"I have never heard so many positive comments about the entertainment
chosen for our annual cub scout Blue/Gold dinner as this year
when Vick performed for 100 or more wide eyed scouts.
Both kids and parents were amazed by the magic!
In addition, we were all impressed by the way Vick incorporated
scouting values and the 100th Birthday of scouting into the program.
I would highly recommend this Magician for any event."

"Vick is outstanding! I can't say enough great things about him and his performance.
I threw a very special party for new clients, friends and family and wanted something
fresh, stylish and unique and for them to be entertained (and impressed).
Vick exceeded even my expectations. I asked for an illusionist (like Eisenheim from the movie)
and am thrilled with the results. He was great working with me before the event too.
Everything was perfect!"

"Vick is truly an amazing and highly professional performer.
We had Vick at Halloween party and he was so good we brought him back
to entertain at our Christmas party.
Great to watch, beautiful magic and a warm and captivating personality.
Vick is a class act and a 5 star performer.
If you are looking for the great entertainment I highly recommended Vick,
he is worth every cent and then some.
Thanks again Vick!

"I heard from many who thoroughly enjoyed the presentation and clearly had a great time.
Many were talking about the Sorcerer's Apprentice long after you'd gone.
I think everyone appreciated the fact that you asked the Scouts to rise to your level
rather than talking down to them. Also, kudos to you for handling this active bunch so well."

"Thanks so much for the great job this afternoon, all of the kids loved the performance!
We especially appreciate you adjusting your tricks so that they were age appropriate,
and the timing was just right.

Thanks again for taking time to entertain our classes ...."
