Jason Cyrus (Hypnotist)

 

Sometimes, when you got it, you just got it. and Jason Cyrus, well, he definitely has it. He has been called “the most electrifying hypnotist on the planet” and his show has been referred to as “the most entertaining hypnosis show you will ever see”. But how did a kid from small town New Brunswick come to be one of the best hypnotists in the world? Let’s go back a bit.
Cyrus notes that “even as a young child, I always loved magic. I loved the power of the mind and the control that people can have over it.” His father would often bring him to see hypnotists and magicians, leaving him impressed with what they could do, and fascinated with the world of magic. He began putting on his own magic acts, and was entertaining people from a very young age. Even as a kid, he was always a huge hit at parties.
Like many Canadian children, he was also involved in hockey, and he possessed enough talent to make a Junior A hockey team in Ontario. One night at a private party, he saw a hypnotist perform, and he just knew it was something he wanted to do. Subsequently, all of his free time was soon taken up either learning all about hypnosis or playing hockey.
He eventually went to college for business and marketing, but the jobs he found after graduating were less then fulfilling. He decided to go with his gut and pursue a life long dream of becoming certified as a hypnotist. He completed the program through the International Hypnosis Association, and after finishing his hours of study, he became a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists.
He began to tour theatres in Atlantic Canada, and everyone was soon all a buzz about his unique act.
In addition to his live shows, Cyrus also opened a clinical hypnotherapy office, which offers a variety of services to his clients, including helping to eliminate bad habits, promote physical and emotional wellness and develop new skills, among many other things.
And that brings us to the present, where Cyrus has become one of the most popular hypnotists in the world. His live shows leave audiences amazed and with sore sides from laughing so much. Cyrus notes that his show “is not a typical hypnosis show. It’s very theatrical, enthusiastic, mystical and magical. There is non-stop laughter.” And not only that, but Cyrus says that the whole show is also very educational. It gives people “an understanding of what hypnotism is, and makes them aware of what a hypnotized person looks like.”
His isn’t a hypnotism show where participants are made to do embarrassing or degrading things while on stage. As Cyrus says, the whole show is “very family friendly, and no volunteer is left being disrespected.” As a result, people are often clamoring to be on stage at Cyrus’s live shows. And if you think you can’t be hypnotized, think again, as Cyrus notes, “if you wake up in the morning and go to sleep at night, you can be hypnotized.” It’s all just a matter of trust.

It was during this time, Gemma discovered that her passion for singing could actually brighten people’s day, making them feel better.

ROB (Bagpipes)

Screen Shot 2016-08-25 at 13.14.20
It’s not uncommon for ceremonious occasions to send a shiver down your spine but when the atmosphere is then accompanied by the sound of distant bagpipes, every nerve in your body tingles with emotion. When you turn and let your eyes lock onto a Pipe player dressed in full regalia, suddenly the reality hits that you are a part of an event laced with respect and importance.

Though Rob is London based, he was born in Lennoxtown, Stirlingshire, by the Campsie Fells, grew up in Glasgow and lived there for over 40 years before moving to England. Down south, Rob was a member of the Surrey Pipe Band for five years, in which time he played on numerous band engagements, including the Surrey County Show, Hendon Police College passing out parade and the Star & Garter Military Tattoo at Royal Armouries, Fort Nelson.

I asked Rob “Why should our clients choose you out of all the Pipers available on the internet?”
Rob replied with this, which reinforced the respect I already had for his performance:

I offer competent playing on a nicely-tuned, well-maintained, quality instrument. These things can’t be taken for granted when booking a piper ‘off the internet’. Even with digital tuning devices available today, getting a set of bagpipes sweetly in tune and keeping them so over the course of an engagement can be something of a ‘dark art’.
Regarding experience, I’ve been doing this for years and have played many gigs. I know what to expect and where the pitfalls are. I can offer advice on tune selection, how to use the pipes to best effect in different situations, and where accidents are waiting to happen.

I am sympathetic to the clients needs, allowing for the fact that they might not have employed a piper before and might have lots of questions they need answered. I invite them to keep the questions coming until everything is clear to their satisfaction. On the day, I realise that things won’t always go to plan and that it’s important for me to be patient and flexible. While there are limits, obviously, I won’t be ‘watching the clock’, and if the wedding breakfast starts an hour later than planned, well, that’s life.

I care about the quality and condition of my piping attire and I will make every effort to ensure I ‘look the part’ for their special occasion. They can be confident I won’t turn up in a moth-eaten kilt with a half-bottle of whisky sticking out my sporran! My kilts, tunics and accessories are bespoke, best quality from Scotland, as opposed to cheap, imported kit bought from an on-line auction site.
I prepare thoroughly for every job to ensure I’m there on time with all my kit present and correct and my pipes in good working order. My rule of thumb is to be on site at least one hour in advance of when I’m first due to play.
Erm…I’m Scottish, born and bred!

Now, that’s professionalism through and through. Feel free to call us or click the enquiry button above and we will let you know Robs availability and pricing. As you can imagine, Rob gets booked up very quickly so even if your requirements are for a years time, get in now!

THE SAM LEWIS BAND

SAM LEWIS BAND 1
The Sam Lewis band is a completely organic 3-piece rock, pop and soul outfit with a repertoire spanning 7 decades. If the naught(ies) were post 1999 then I guess we’re into the “onesies” now and let’s be honest; who doesn’t love a “onesie”? Anyway, they cover everything from Elvis and Buddy Holly to Pharell and Jessie J and everyone in-between!

The Sam Lewis Band prefer not to turn their act into a 4/5-piece as it really isn’t necessary, costs more and won’t sound as polished as the 3-piece. Just take a look at the videos. The only thing that is overdubbed in these are the guitar solos in ‘She’s Electric’ and The Kinks medley. They’ve no fancy backing tracks that they can hide behind so are 100% live!

Rest assured, if you book The Sam Lewis Band, you get the front man ‘Sam Lewis’ and a great rhythm section. The bassist and drummer may vary from time to time because everyone is a working musician but the picture you see of Sam will match the man that fronts the band at your party.

There is an impressive wealth of experience in the pool of musicians Sam uses from a drummer that has played for Andrew Lloyd Webber to a bassist that has played for Boyzone (a bit back in the day I know but still a difficult gig to get). Then there’s Sam who has supported Ed Sheeran and Noel Gallagher, played guitar for Disney and more recently been touring Scandinavia as a solo guitarist and vocalist. Between them, they have played for big artists, at festivals and in people’s front rooms!

Put simply, they bring their party to yours. Please check out the repertoire and get in touch with us to confirm your booking.
