His diverse skill set has been featured on stages across the globe, national television, and even landed him some sweet hand modeling gigs.

Jeanette Andrews

Jeanette Andrews is a contemporary illusionist and artist who specializes in creating interactive sensory illusions, possessing a contemplative take on the art of the impossible. Combining a lifetime of craft with influences not typically seen in magic performances such as interactive performance art, immersive theater, quantum physics, and philosophy, she invents a unique take on this ancient art form. Andrews uses sensory anomalies and scientific oddities to bridge everyday life to a special, heightened world. Hailed as one of the most innovative illusionists today, Andrews has staged hundreds of performances at museums, theaters and universities across the United States, including sold-out and standing-room-only crowds at the Museum of Contemporary Art and Birmingham Museum of Art. Illusion is Ms. Andrews’ life’s work and her performances have been praised by PBS, The Daily Mail, and the Chicago Tribune.

Magic Sam

Magic Sam has opened for the late great Bernie Mac, as well as having the pleasure to perform for Michael Jordan and Oprah Winfrey. Magic Sam has also performed in Las Vegas, South America, and on board the Princess of the Sea European Cruise Line.

THE 654 CLUB PERFORMER

Justin Purcell

Justin Purcell hails from the mysterious land of Indiana. His interest in the dark arts was sparked by an “I can read” book called Spooky Tricks. He was inspired to make a career of magic by two things: his love for sharing with audiences the wonder of the impossible and his distaste for honest work. Magic is real!
