NEWBURGH INVOLVEMENT FAIR w JACE-ILLUSIONIST & AIRBRUSH TOWELSJace Pic
Thursday, September 14
Kaplan Hall, Great Room/Oval (NBG)
11AM-2PM

For Jace magic is an art form. He does not use wands or
deal with rabbits though. He presents his magic effects elegantly and in the most powerful way. Even more impressive he performs it all right in front of your face!

He's been practicing and performing everyday for over 3 years. In that short amount of time he has performed at Corporate events, Restaurants, Festivals, Weddings, Birthdays, Sweet Sixteens, Bar/Bat Mitzvah's, themed events such as, but not limited to Halloween, Fourth of July and New Year's parties as well as getting booked at restaurants performing table magic. No venue is too big or small.
Most recently Jace has performed at Webster Hall in NYC. Airbrush Pic
​Jace fell in love with close up magic in particular due to the lack of a stage and the ability to perform seeming miracles in front of peoples faces.He got his start in restaurant magic; performing for people at tables while they waited for their food to arrive.

Never lose your beach towel when it has your name on it. Using white terry cloth, these towels are airbrushed and personalized with name and color. Why not have the colors match your bathing suit! Let the towel be the canvas as we create your customized art. These are perfect for beach themed events, college spring break and corporate outings.

Cash Attack is a great new game show that has taken the characteristics of two well-known game shows, “Let’s Make a Deal” and “Deal or No Deal”, and combined them to create an innovative and entertaining event that everyone in the audience has the chance to be part of. Five rounds will be played, with total winning possibilities summing up to $1,250.

Contestants are chosen from the audience in a Let’s Make A Deal fashion. Everyone is asked to stand, as our host calls out statements that pertain to them such as whose birth date ends in an odd number, or whose last name has more than three vowels in it. The last person standing is the contestant who gets the chance to play for the cash. Our set consists of a drapery backdrop and lighted shadow boxes, which hold the 21 cases the contestant gets to choose from. These cases have dollar amounts ranging from .01 to $250. The round is played just like the TV classic Deal or No Deal and features its very own energetic host and banker.
