“On behalf of the Garrett Lakes Arts Festival Board of Directors, staff and hundreds of ‘GLAF’ patrons who attended your performance here I want to thank you for a wonderful show! Coming from over a decade of experience as the Vice President of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra where in that capacity I was responsible for booking all the events at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, I can say with authority that in today’s market it is difficult to sell-out performances and virtually impossible to have only positive feedback result from them. Well, with your performance here, it was my delight to ‘experience the extraordinary!’ Your performance was a sell-out and we have received nothing but positive comments about your show. A lot of ‘how did he do that?’ and ‘that was incredible’ comments have come our way and the demand is ‘bring him back!’ We will listen to our patrons and have you back on our series very soon. And thank you again, Craig, for the truly enjoyable, entertaining, lively and overall extraordinary experience.”
Lucinda Williams, Executive Director, Garrett Lakes Arts Festival (MD)
“Typically, our Series audience is not inclined to rave. Your performance here, however, moved them to repeated raves. You not only captured the minds of our audience, but their hearts as well. Your style, presence and delivery were exquisite. Thank you for an entertaining and exciting performance filled with energy and mystery.”
Rick Jones, Executive Director, Fitton Center for the Creative Arts (OH)
“I admit to being somewhat troubled after Craig Karges’ show. It wasn’t the show itself. It was flawless. Every trick, illusion, phenomenon - however the more than a dozen acts were viewed by those in attendance - was done with class, humor and impeccable showmanship. What bothered me was the ‘extraordinist’s’ uncanny ability to see objects without looking, move furniture without touching and read minds - including mine. Karges wasn’t scary. His show wasn’t based on the gloomy macabre. Rather, his was a positive demonstration of the power of the mind.”
