Artist / Program Description

Walter King, Jr. has been spellbinding audiences for over two decades from Las Vegas to the Caribbean Islands. He was the first African American illusionist to perform for the prestigious Houdini Organization of Appleton, Wisconsin. Using state-of-the-art illusions, special effects, dance and music, King not only entertains, but also conveys inspiration and the “magical” richness of his culture.

The Spellbinder offers spectacular assembly-style performances of magic, illusions, dance, and theater that are guaranteed to bring audiences to their feet! Solo and company performances are available. His urban flair and approach to magic, combined with the positive reinforcement of the importance of education, never fails to make every event unforgettable!

Programs:
Legacy of Black Magicians: An unprecedented look at African American magicians from Africa to today. King takes audiences on a magical journey of several historical entertainers and their styles of performance, from escape artists to grand stage illusions like levitating a woman in mid-air. This package will leave you spellbound and enlightened!

The Spellbinder Drug-Free Jam!: A high-energy program which uses “Science Magic” to emphasize the dangers of drugs and cigarette smoking.
