   Magic of The Steelgraves
Formerly Known as Almodarr's Grand Illusion
             New England Magicians and Entertainers Markus and Angelique Steelgrave

The Magic of The Steelgraves will WOW you at your next event!


The Steelgraves give hundreds of performances each
year in diverse venues.  Most are versions of their
Stage Magic show; however, Close-Up Strolling Magic
is another great way to enrich your event.
Transform even the simplest function into an amazing,
unforgettable event...magically!

Any Size--Fully-Staged or Platform-Style

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 occasion, The Steelgraves offer you a choice of entertainment options, each sure to help you make your event the success it deserves to be.

If you book a stage magic performance, most "tricks" and illusions are unique from show to show; so if they perform for you more than once, you'll enjoy a different show each time.  Many clients book year after year, and by keeping records of what is performed for whom, The Steelgraves' large repertoire allows them to vary the magic, so your show is always fresh and exciting! 
Strolling close-up magic has almost infinite possibilities--for crowds of any size, it's a perfect way to engage individuals within a group on a more intimate basis over the course of an hour or more.
Wonderfully willing to customize performance to fit occasion!

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!)

The Steelgraves have performed for such diverse clientele as:

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

             ... and other groups where special needs must be considered.  Their shows are sensitive to and appropriate for each audience.

Corporate clients can rely on The Steelgraves to create specialized programs unique to their companies'  products or sales messages; recently they have worked with, among others, the following groups, to craft presentations relevant to each company's needs:

        PaperWorks Industries (Philadelphia, PA)
        Nestle Waters North America/Poland Spring Bottling Company
        The Timberland Company
        ConAgra Foods
        Hannaford Bros.
        Idexx Laboratories
        New Hampshire Medical Managers Group
        Wright Express Corporation

The Steelgraves have also worked with non-profit organizations such as the Epilepsy Foundation of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, St. Mary's Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (Maine), the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the American Cancer Society, and many others.

Our staff hired Markus and Angelique to perform a magic show during our Annual Cancer
Survivor's Day.  Their 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
touch of 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.

Altrusa International of Portland was thrilled and delighted with The Steelgraves' performance at
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 another
occasion to enjoy with them.
