Greg Gleason
Greg is one of the top performing magicians in the world, doing shows literally all over the world. In Las Vegas, he starred in “The Wizard’s Secrets” at the MGM Hotel and Casino, performing a record-breaking 9000 shows there. He also went on to star in “Gleason Magic-Embrace the Mystery” at the Venetian hotel and Casino.

Greg’s thrilling and cutting-edge performances have made him an international sensation. His shows exhibit his impeccable technique and a dedication to his craft that is rarely seen in modern illusion acts today. His sleight-of-hand skills are as smooth as silk, truly making astonishing magic.

The International Magician’s Society named Greg “Illusionist of the Year” and also he was awarded “Magician of the Year” at the World Magic Awards, which is recognized as the International Academy Awards of Magic. It is from the World Magic Awards and the multi-award winning television series Masters of Illusion that the Masters of Illusion live tour was born.

Michael Turco
Michael Turco fell in love with the mystery of magic when he was just 5 years old. Spending his summers just miles from the strip in Atlantic City, Michael saw every magic show in the area and was intent to master each trick and illusion on his own.

Michael has had his own show in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood casino and brought a little bit of Jersey to the strip.

The press describes Turco as “a natural born talent… a true success story.”

Michael can be seen on the award winning TV series Masters of Illusion airing in 2014 on the CW network.

Jonathan Pendragon
Jonathan Pendragon has performed at three Presidential Galas in Washington D.C., for the Queen of England, the Prince of Wales and the Royal Family of Monaco.

At the turn of the millennium, MAGIC magazine created a list of the 100 most influential people in the history of 20th Century magic. The list included Harry Houdini and Harry Blackstone. Jonathan was one of only a handful of current performers named.

The World Magic Awards has twice named him “Best Illusionist” and also “Magician of the Year.”

Jonathan can be seen on the new episodes of the hit TV series Masters of Illusion airing in 2014 on the CW.

Naathan Phan
Naathan’s first love in life was, and still is, magic. He became enamored by the art at the tender age of 5 when his grandfather showed him his very first magic tricks. Although his magical genesis may sound a bit cliché, his magic is anything but. Naathan hooks you with his Robin Williams paced wit and humor, perfectly punctuated by his well-practiced prestidigitation, and geared towards your audience, whatever age(s) they may be.

Naathan has performed with Masters of Illusion on many successful tours and was a featured performer on CW’s hit TV series “Masters of Illusion” in 2015 and can be seen again on the CW in June 2016.
