Robaire takes State of Mind virtual!

Hi everyone. My name is Chris Mustakas.

If you’re like me, you’ve probably been climbing the walls since last spring because of COVID-19. I mean, just how much Netflix can one person watch!

Who would have thought we’d still be in this situation just as we’re entering the prime season for parties and get-togethers?

But we don’t have a choice. We have to adapt and find new—virtual—ways to get together and have fun.

So, if you’re dreading a long and boring winter, I have the solution, a way to bring excitement, energy, and MAGIC to your virtual office party or holiday get-together:

It’s called State of Mind.

Mentalist Robaire has wowed diverse audiences in Las Vegas, New York, Vancouver, Ottawa, and dozens of other cities across North America. Now, for the first time, this exciting, interactive experience is available to anyone, anywhere!

You might have seen similar displays of mentalism on America’s Got Talent. That’s the kind of amazing, thought-provoking magic Robaire can bring to your virtual event—at a fraction of the normal cost.

Now anyone anywhere can enjoy Robaire’s LIVE State of Mind show with just a few clicks and a webcam—and maybe a deck of cards and a calculator, too. All without leaving home.

Raising a glass and spending time with others while also enjoying Robaire’s engaging State of Mind show is a GREAT way to celebrate that is both easy and affordable!

But don’t take my word for it. Check out some of the videos from Robaire’s past performances, one of which shows the effect he had on me. (Spoiler alert, I swore a few times.) Check out ‘Stolen Thoughts’ on Youtube here.

If you’re planning a family party, a corporate event, or just a regular office get-together, Robaire’s State of Mind is the perfect way to ensure your guests have an entertaining experience they will be talking about long after the party is over.

Please help us get the word out and share this video with your HR person, your boss, your family’s party planner, or anyone you know who owns a business or works in a large organization and tell them, “Hey! Do I have a great party idea for you!”

Stay healthy, stay safe, and enjoy a new STATE OF MIND this holiday season. and

Meghan Miller

Please support Meghan Miller

Dear Friends.

Those of you who know me know that I rarely ask for anything. But I am now.

Meghan Miller was recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of malignant lymphoma. Meghan is just 33 years old, and lives in New York City where she has pursued creative work as an actor, writer, dancer, filmmaker and director.

Just last month, Meghan suffered odd, sporadic symptoms, including swelling in her face and fainting spells. After many tests and emergency room visits doctors determined that a 9cm tumour in her chest cavity (Mediastinal B-cell Lymphoma) is the cause.

And as you likely know, they don’t have health care there like we do in Canada.

The good news is that we have been told this is absolutely treatable. It won’t be easy, but Meghan is a strong and feisty young woman and she will beat it.

Meghan Miller is in hospital and has started aggressive treatments in NYC. She has gone through six rounds of chemotherapy already; often for five or six days in a row. Given the intense treatment schedule, she is not able to work, or travel. That’s why we’re asking for your help.

Here is a “GoFundMe” link to her page and story. Whatever you can do to help (even the smallest amount) will be appreciated.

Please share this with your networks.

Thank you for your consideration, thoughts and support.


Ottawa Magicians and Mentalists

What do Ottawa Magicians and Mentalists have in common? They entertain their audiences and make them wonder whether what they are experiencing is real, or simply an illusion.
