The Show includes a good bit of audience participation.

For All Blue and Gold Banquets
The total fee is $275.
This is all inclusive and there are no extra charges
The investment for the Illusions by Vick 45 minute banquet show
is between $395 to $1,295,
Being a former Cub Scout
(and knowing some Blue and Gold Banquets are budget conscious)
I extend the show fee of $275 to Blue and Gold Banquets
as my way of giving a little back

Technical Requirements -

All that is required is access to an electrical outlet
and a 6 foot square area to set up in and perform from
We provide our own P.A. system
and all equipment associated with our show
The show can be performed from a traditional stage
or if better for the facility we can perform
on the main floor with the guests
Access to the performance area will be required about
40 minutes before the start of the show
For load in and set up
Additional Notes -
Schedule and time permitting I make myself available for
a brief (5 to 25 minutes) question and answer period after the show
This is included as part of the show at no extra charge.
At Blue and Gold Banquets Illusions by Vick does not have any items for sale.
I don't feel it is proper to try to make additional revenue
selling anything to scouts or their families at Blue and Gold Banquets
Blue and Gold Banquets are some of my favorite shows every year.
To help celebrate the Pack's success and achievements
of the past year and look forward to the new year
is a great honor and privilege.
Here are a few excerpts from emails sent after Blue & Gold Banquets from 2007 through 2015
What a wonderful person to deal with, great performer and superb with the kids.
Vick performed at our Blue & Gold Banquet,
and included Cub Scouting values and the pledge seamlessly in his act.
It was captivating, entertaining and impressive for everyone there (kids and adults).
Scheduling and communication was excellent.
Thank you Vick!

Pack 76 would like to express their sincere thanks for making our event truly memorable! It was a hit!!
The kids loved you and the parents were so impressed!
Your showmanship truly kept all ages of the audience in suspense and amazement.
Your special cub scout emphasis to the show made it a perfect start to our Blue and Gold Ceremony.
Thank you so very much.
It has certainly been a pleasure to work with you and I will definitely recommend you to other Packs.
PS. It was truly heartwarming to see one of my little bear scouts really take a shine to you.
He rarely ever reaches out to anyone and he was extremely inspired by you.
Vick – We had so much fun with your show!
Many people told me at the end of the evening that this was the best Blue and Gold Banquet ever
and I believe that this to a large part due to how well your program blended
with our message and how much the kids enjoyed your illusions.
The adults were equally mesmerized and liked your presentation.
Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us.
We wish you all the best and I will surely recommend your show to friends and other packs!
Thank you again for your presentation, your professional attitude,
for making the entire transaction very easy and enjoyable
and for your creativity and your excellent ability to relate to the kids.

I have received countless verbal, email & Facebook comments on how great you were!
The boys were enthralled, engaged, & entertained!
One of our best yet!
C. Parsons Pack 1833
"I have never heard so many positive comments about the
entertainment chosen for our annual Cub Scout Blue/Gold dinner
as this year when Vick performed for 100 or more wide eyed scouts.
Both kids and parents were amazed by the magic!
In addition, we were all impressed by the way Vick
incorporated scouting values and the 100th Birthday of
scouting into the program.
I would highly recommend this
Magician for any event."
Pam Johnson Pack 688
