Brandon's fascination with magic began when he was 8 years old. He had a fondness for the skill and craftsmanship of the late Doug Henning. After seeing Henning perform, he was hooked. Soon thereafter, he received his first magic kit and began to explore all the possibilities with his new hobby. While other kids were rough-housing about in yard, Brandon was bewildering family pets with the tricks of his new trade. His younger brother, Scott, along with parents Mike and Karen, were his earliest audience. Backyard shows were the norm for our grommet-magician. Initially, it was the magic kit and household objects that comprised Brandon's magic paraphernalia. As a new reader, he forewent the regular library books of an elementary student and focused on magic books with illustration. In time, he began reading books on the art of magic, as well as lecture notes of prominent magicians. All the while, he was developing his skills at sleight of hand and coercing his mother to take him to magic shops to view the latest and greatest tradecraft. Soon, he was giving shows to the whole neighborhood, not to mention birthday parties, and elementary school shows. Brandon Newsom ceased from being just Brandon Newsom , when, at the age of 10, his aunt christened him "The Great Brandini".

The Magician always does two things at once. Performs an effect for the audience and operate a trick for himself. He is telling one story and thinking another. -Harry Blackstone, 1929

I hired Brandon several times as a magician to work our booth at various trade shows. He does a tremendous job at driving traffic to your booth. Brandon is great at taking your brand/messaging and incorporating it into his act. This encourages prospects to stay after the show and have a conversation about my business. Brandon has helped tremendously in making all our trade shows a huge success. I highly recommend him. January 19, 2016, George was Brandon's client
