    University of Kentucky

    ​"In my 3 years of working as an event planner, I have never seen attendees react in the way that they did to this show. Reed and Ashton had our audience in awe and in disbelief throughout the entire show. The whole venue stay seated until it was over... or hardly "stayed seated," everyone was on the edge of their seats! Not only were the tricks they performed together unbelievable, they involved the audience and had both the participants and the viewers in shock. As someone who grew up watching professional magicians, I can say this was a top notch performance. The music, Reed's stage performance, and the costumes really added to the experience. I hope to see the Masterson's in show again!"

    ​“My associates as well as myself were astonished by what Reed and his wife were able to accomplish at our stores party. He did tricks of illusion and intrigue, at times we weren't certain of what the outcome would be. We will most definitely have them back in the future. Please put me down for a reference, which I would be happy to provide.”

    "21st Century Magic was the perfect entertainment option for our corporate event. Throughout the scheduling and set-up process Reed and his entire staff handled themselves as true professionals. The performance that Reed and his team delivered was interactive, extremely engaging and had the audience on the edge of their chairs for the duration of the show. Any business who is looking for an entertainer that brings an edgy, fun, and overall passion to the show that he provides, my recommendation is to contact Reed Masterson and his team. Trust me, you won’t regret it."

    Dillard's

    "The Mastersons provided entertainment for the annual dinner celebrating our top Dillard’s associates in Lexington. They loved it – saying it was the best banquet yet. And we have Reed and Ashton to thank! Looking back at event photographs you can see the crowd’s range of emotions: horror, worry, trepidation, intrigue, delight, surprise, astonishment... Working with Reed was a breeze -- he was able to cater a show perfectly to our venue and audience. We especially appreciated how he included members of our audience, making it a truly interactive experience. We would not hesitate to book Reed & Ashton for future events."

    The Historic State Theatre Complex

    "I worked with Reed Masterson and Ashton Masterson last year at The Historic State Theater in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. At that time I was the Executive Director at the theater. During my time working with Reed and Ashton I was very pleased with not only their on stage performance but also the behind scenes work ethic and drive they displayed.  

    Reed was very quick to jump in anytime I needed assistance with marketing and promoting the show. He took the lead and promoted the show through all outlets possible. The night of the show both Reed and Ashton were very organized and professional. During their performance, they both did a wonderful job of keeping the audience intrigued and captivated throughout the entire show.  

     

    I would highly recommend Reed and Ashton Masterson for any future performances. If I were still at The State Theater I would gladly have them back for future shows."

    John P Stephens Cultural Arts Center

    "We LOVED having The Mastersons at our school! Reed was easy to work with, customized a show to fit our needs, and put on an outstanding performance! They are a professional, friendly staff and crew that I would recommend to anyone who works in arts administration or event planning. There were gasps of amazement from the audience as well as laughter throughout the show. Audience participation makes for a fun time for everyone. Reed and Ashton present their skills with a passion for the artistry of magic. I will certainly book them again in the future!"
