"Nick and I wanted to say a big "thank you" for sharing your magic with our wedding guests on Sunday. I saw several guests walking around with the roses you created from paper (amazing!). I'm really glad I got to see at least a bit of the magic, although I kept being interrupted by guests when I was watching (sorry!). Thanks again for adding something special to our wedding day and making it even more magical for us. :) "


Best wishes, Amber Fletcher



"We chose Don Stevenson for our First Annual Customer Appreciation Night. This was our first event and with that being said, with the first anything; you are always a little stressed about how the night may go. When trying to find some entertainment for the evening, we ran across Don and found that his reviews were very good. We decided to go with him and as the event got closer we more frequently discussed details over the phone. Don was always very pleasant to speak to and by his sense of humor just simply over the phone I could tell he would bring something special to the night. When the night arrived Don did some table-side magic and comedy, which the guests absolutely loved! The stress of the event was eased and Don did a good job of it! From the time his main show started till the moment it ended I can say that everyone did not stop laughing. His magic show and his comedy certainly made the night complete. We had the whole town talking after the event about what a great night it was and we can't wait to do it again! Don was a big part of our night and we can't thank him enough. We highly recommend him for any event and can guarantee he will make your night as unforgettable as ours."

Sherry Rowley, SaskTel



"(We) enjoyed a very entertaining performance by Don Stevenson... his show was very well received and enjoyed by our audience.  The show was well suited to the audience he was presenting to in terms of being professional and appropriate for a corporate function.  Don incorporated audience members into his act, allowing them to contribute in the various magic acts he demonstrated to the audience.  The constant laughter from the attendees of Don's show very much indicated that the show was a hit!  I received very positive feedback from fellow employees who attended... that the show was an enjoyable experience.  I was very impressed with the preparation... a follow up phone call by Don to discuss details for the show.  The extra time taken in order to do this enabled a show that was customized to the audience Don was presenting to and allowed the audience to appreciate the material he presented as it related to them.  On behalf of the attendees of this year's party, I would like to say that we were very fortunate to have Don as our entertainer and guest, and would enjoy another booking with him in future years.  I would further recommend Don to anyone looking for an entertaining and enjoyable performer!"


Marla Rutten, Canada Customs and Revenue Agency



"We engaged Don for our annual Christmas party.  Our group had decided that we wished to be entertained and we were looking for some fun and some laughter.  Don provided exactly what we were looking for.  Don was very sensitive to the tough time our group was going through and provided humour and very good magic, all in very good taste.  We all enjoyed his presentation and would gladly recommend him to anyone.”  


Susan Haswell, Merrill Lynch Canada, Inc.

I thoroughly enjoyed my dealings with you  and look forward to seeing you again.”

"Don, it was nice meeting you and watching as you entertained us for over an hour.  You had the audience attention.  As you introduced yourself stating you were 'just developing' your talents and as you went through a number of 'attempts', you were excellent and humorous in your 'failures.'  But whenever you did want something to happen, it did so beautifully!  I guess the next David Copperfield!  Did you notice after your presentation was concluded, not one person got up to leave -- I had to discharge them, and you know what that tells me -- you were super!  Thanks again Don, we sure appreciated having you perform for us."
