NECA Annual Meeting in Alexandria, MN

Joshua Lozoff was fantastic! He had our group mesmerized with his magic. Our event was outdoors and unfortunately it wasn't quite dark enough for him to present his communication message onscreen. However his connection with the audience through participation and illusions captivated our group and kept them engaged throughout the show.
