About


About


Saltspring

The Gulf Islands are a haven for all kinds of art, so it’s not surprising that Joel’s Saltspring roots nurtured his magic.  Joel was born & raised in woods full of magic & wonder, surrounded by creativity & encouragement. With no traffic jams and plenty of free parking, it was a stress-free environment that allowed him to study, learn and hone his performance. Seeking a change of pace & a larger audience, Joel moved to Vancouver, BC – still firmly connected to his Saltspring paradise.

Why Magic?

"You can’t be mad, sad, or angry when you’re astonished."

~ Paul Harris

An illusion created in front of your eyes takes you away from life’s complications & puts you completely in the moment. Astonishment. Wonder. Awe.  Joel masterfully amazes his audiences taking them into a moment where anything & everything seems possible. For him, creating that moment of surprise is fascinating.

"We have received nothing but rave reviews about Joel. His table side manner is easy and comfortable and he consistently impresses the room with a wide variety of illusions. I would not hesitate to recommend Joel to any group or business searching for an entertainer." 

Rob Pingle

Saturday Market Coordinator, Saltspring Island

"Watching Joel engage so many people at the Market is always a pleasure. His skill is matched by his love for what he does. People just have to stop & watch whatever he is doing. I don't mind how many times I've seen him perform getting to see him perform again is always worth it."

TERRY GARDINER

BRITISH COLUMBIA SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF ALUMNI ASSOCIATION

"Thank you to Mr. Joel Eddington for being part of our 100th anniversary reunion banquet. We wish to give a huge “hand wave” (Deaf applause) for his excellent performance. The best part was his effortless mingling with patrons whose communication mode is of course American Sign Language. Joel is a very entertaining and engaging entertainer. We will not hesitate to recommend him at further Deaf functions. A big Hand Wave …."

Irene Laronde

"Thank you again for taking such good care of our staff at our annual party.  I have received many compliments on your performance of how engaging you were.  We will be sure to book you in again and I’m glad you were able to help us on New Year’s as well."

Brent Nichol

North Delta Dry Grad

"Joel's performance had attracted a large crowd including myself who were all completely amazed. Being someone who enjoys the concept of magic, Joel's performance had inspired me to pursue into this talent and left quite the lasting impression on me. My friends and I were all astonished at the tricks he performed and it gave us all excitement late into the night. It was most definitely the highlight of my dry grad."
