Mindmajik Reviews

“John Bates has worked with us for years now, not only for events for our visitors at Six Flags Great Escape, but also for our own company holiday party! He keeps the audience entertained and involved through his entire show, and groups continue to come back year after year because of the amazing things that he can do!”

“Students were enthralled with the performance. John is excellent at what he does and his interactions with the students were on point. Students were clearly hypnotized and the audience had a wonderful time with his show. I would recommend this event to any group that is interested in learning a little more about the mind.”

“Mindmajik has been a fun and interesting activity we offer to our vacationers at Trout Lake Club. John Bates Childress demonstrates the power of hypnosis through a comical routine that keeps the audience involved and engaged. We look forward to the different interactions and reactions he gets through different individuals. Mindmajik creates a memorable experience for the families that come to our resort in the Adirondacks.”

“We had John Bates perform for our freshmen during new student orientation. His reputation was so good that many of our faculty and staff attended. The performance was outstanding and the feedback from students was extremely positive. In one single event, John earned his way to the very top of the “must invite back” list!”

“John put on a wonderful Hypnosis Show for our Annual Christmas Party. I had always been skeptical when it came to hypnosis, however, after seeing first-hand my co-workers doing hysterical things they never would be seen doing in public, I realized, this is the real deal! This is a good time for all, and I highly recommend these types of events, as they are fun for all ages!!

“John was great. He performed for my son’s graduation party and was busy the entire time. John did many solo/private readings and hypnosis as well as a large group presentation. My guests loved him and enjoyed his show. Not only talented, he was extremely professional and nice. Lastly he was extremely prompt and effective with his communications. I enjoyed being able to reach out to him before the event and know that he would get back to me almost immediately; this was so refreshing after dealing with vendors who took weeks to respond. Highly recommend!”
