Steve Johnson , a resident of Poughkeepsie , New York has been involved in magic since age nine and has been performing magic and juggling professionally for over 20 years.

The Magic Variety Show can be seen throughout the northeastern United States at resorts, festivals and performing arts events. In March of 1993 the Magic Variety Show traveled to Gainesville , Florida for a return engagement with the Gainesville Chamber Orchestra. Extensive preparations were made to integrate magic with select musical pieces, which included making the conductor magically appear!

"It was in college that I learned juggling in a physical education class taught by Greg Moss, one of the foremost juggling instructors in the nation." At that time Steve arranged a juggling routine performed to a mix of classical music, which has become his trademark. "Greg and I have become close friends and I often consult him about juggling ideas and technique.

From 1987 to 1999, Steve had been involved in the Tannen Magic Camp, the only summer camp of it's kind in the U.S. that teaches magic skills to boys and girls age 9 to 18. "I feel privileged to have been a member of the staff at the magic camp. The kids are great to work with and are extremely innovative in coming up with new ideas for magic."

Steve Johnson currently holds lifetime membership in The Society of American Magicians and The International Brotherhood of Magicians.
