Bio


Aaron Radatz started performing at the young age of 6 when he received a magic set from his grandmother. An only child, the magic kit allowed young Radatz to entertain himself.

Up until the age of 14, he kept his magic to family and friends. Radatz then began performing for various schools, organizations, and private parties.

Enamored by the idea of becoming a professional magician, he made a deal with his parents; he would pursue his magic career, but he would earn a college degree.

The career took off, and Radatz had to finish school via the Internet. In 2000, he earned a degree in marketing, all the while remaining focused on his magic career.

In honing his craft, he drew inspiration from magic juggernauts such as Harry Houdini, and David Copperfield.

From the earliest moments of his professional life, Radatz attracted global clients who were leaders in their industry including: Ameritech, Bally's Casino, Holland America Cruise Line, Hilton Hotels, General Motors and the famed Hollywood’s Magic Castle.

At the age of 18, Radatz’s expertise and devotion to his craft provided him with a global audience, a center stage performance with the Chrysler Corporation, entertaining at their New Car Announcement show in San Francisco, California.

Two years later Radatz earned the title of being the youngest magician to headline a casino production at Casino Magic Biloxi, MS.

Today, Radatz is the newest star to hit the magic entertainment scene. He has studied and worked with many of the masters of magic including David Copperfield and Harry Blackstone, Jr.

Radatz is also the only magician who has been commissioned by the U.S. Pentagon for a command performance for the U.S. military.

His dedication to the troops has earned him awards, including such high honors as the Commander’s Coin of Excellence and the Scroll of Appreciation of Honor and Admiration.

He was chosen to represent the U.S.A. at the World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas and recently received the Outstanding Young Alumni award from his alma mater, Central Michigan University where he attained a degree in business. 

To date, Radatz and his cast have toured 45 U.S. states, 37 countries, and 6 continents; bringing wonder to a quarter of a million people in 2008 alone.
