Any Size--Fully-Staged or
Where The Magic Happens Right
Before Your Eyes--
Sometimes Even In Your Own Hands!
Every event is unique, and
yours may have specific needs;
The Steelgraves don't take a "one size fits all" approach
to crafting your entertainment. While some
entertainers perform the
same show for every client, no matter the venue or
The Steelgraves offer you a choice of entertainment options, each sure to
help you make your
event the success it deserves to be.
Do you have special
requests? Are there certain circumstances to be considered for your
entertainment to be "just right"?
The Steelgraves will work with you to arrive at the best solution to
your needs. Let them know your performing environment, the size and makeup of your audience,
any special needs or considerations, your itinerary or schedule, and your event's message, goal or theme, and
they'll help you meet your goals...while staying within your budget.
Rest assured that every performance for
every client is
absolutely "G-rated" and good, clean fun--no cursing or
off-color humor, no scantily-clad showgirls, and
nothing inappropriate. (You could feel safe bringing your children or
your grandparents to any show!)

England Homes for The Deaf (Maine and Massachusetts)
Shalom House (Portland, Maine)
Resource Center (Massachusetts)

appropriate for each audience.

Our staff hired
Markus and Angelique to perform a magic show during our Annual Cancer
show was very entertaining
and brought smiles to many peoples' faces.
Cancer patients spend most of their time
worrying about their illness and trying
to deal with life
while being sick.
Markus and Angelique showed compassion and enlightened the audience with
personal stories of their own.
The Magic of The Steelgraves offer not only great magic, but a personal
humor as well.
They spent time going from table to table and entertained people prior to the
show start time. Without reservation, I would highly recommend these
two for any event.

International of Portland was thrilled and delighted with The Steelgraves'
our 82nd Birthday Party. I would be honored to recommend them
without hesitation to anyone
interested in booking fantastic entertainment.
Markus and Angelique made our event the most memorable we've ever
had! Our members were enthralled and entertained! It was clear
that Angelique had researched our organization.
They tailored their act brilliantly to our audience, involving members in
playful and positive ways.
We had 30 guests ranging in age from 16 to 89 and everyone was spellbound.
All of our interactions went smoothly. Communication was
flawless. Angelique provided us with a clear, straightforward
contract. The agreement was easy to understand and The Steelgraves
met every detail without exception.
They arrived in good humor with plenty of time to acquaint
themselves with us and to unobtrusively
set up their act. Our group LOVED the illusions and reveled in the
magic of the evening. Following the performance, Angelique and
Markus mingled and visited with members of our club, making
everyone feel valued and special. They posed for photos, introduced
their animals, and answered
many questions. They were subtle as they packed up and did not seem
to be in a hurry to leave.
I wish The Steelgraves continued success and will actively look for
occasion to enjoy with them.
