Bruce was welcoming, understanding, and truly listened
to the goal of our staff outing.

We wanted to laugh, learn, and get comfortable together
to celebrate the end of our summer camp season.

This was the perfect way to make us feel like kids
and also feel connected together.

Highly recommend it for all types of occasions!

Side note:

The owner Curt said
he needs to think of another way
to use you for some other event/outing!

No thank you! You not only made my Tuddlebug feel special you really reached out
to so many others with your inspirational words.
I truly believe everything happens for a reason.

There were a few people in the crowd starting the process or are in the process of
Awakening and you hit the nail on the head with your energy and words.  

Also please thank your beautiful wife for participating in Tulys special day.
We really appreciate the both of you and are excited to possibly cross paths in the future.

Hi Bruce

The committee met last night to recap the All Night Grad party
and everyone was singing your praises.

They thought you were just great, loved the show and
loved your positive message.

We would love to have you back next year if your schedule allows.

Of course none of us know what the future brings,
but if you are available please consider returning.

It was great working with you,
I hope you have a great summer.

Thank you,

Bruce can do the impossible

By Mark O. on August 8, 2016

Picture this. It's 4 a.m. You need to entertain a bunch of tired teenagers.
They have grown a little unruly. And you want to deliver a message of inspiration
to them while entertaining them.

Not if you hire Bruce James.
Bruce stood in front of 300 teenagers ready to go home and got them so fired up,
 its was like the party was just starting, rather then ending.
Bruce even handled the few disruptive kids
by weaving them seamlessly into his performance.

Wow. Bruce is funny, he inspires, he entertains.
That is doing the impossible in my book.

Great to work with, fantastic show

I work as a social event coordinator for a small, rural school district out of CT, about 600 students in the high school.
We have never hosted a hypnotist show before but had heard great things from another school nearby.

From start to finish, Bruce was professional, kind, and willing to shape his show around our needs.
Part of the funding that helped pay for this show came from a prevention council

Bruce took this information and injected into his show a segment about bullying,
substance abuse, and drunk driving, which was really great to see and didn't seem forced.

 Every student on stage was seen as a star, nobody was made to do anything that was
inappropriate or questionable - this really was a family friendly show and still captivated our audience
who couldn't take enough photo's and video's of their friends on stage.

The audience was very diverse in age yet everybody was laughing the whole time.
I also enjoyed the diversity of people that he brought up on stage,
 it wasn't just students, but parents too, which was a nice addition.

The whole team made things very easy for us, they set up and broke down all of their equipment,
we just needed to provide the stage and lights for the auditorium.
You know its a good event when you can't get people to leave the auditorium after the show is over - everybody stayed behind
to congratulate the participants and talk to the hypnotist.

 I had many students approach me to ask if we were going to have him again
or if we could get him for project graduation.

I anticipate we will be using him again soon - the students
who didn't go definitely missed out.

Best entertainment for kids and adults in one!!!

By Danielle S. on November 8, 2016

Everything about Bruce is unique and refreshing!
He had us all gasping and laughing for over an hour.

You will not be disappointed!!!
If you are considering hiring a hypnotist for your next event,
do not hesitate!! Bruce will bring the house down!

Thank you for performing for WHS again.
You have become a grad party tradition in Westbrook!

I'm sure some of kids took videos,
so I may get to see pieces of your show at some point.
Wish I could have stayed longer. I'm struggling today on 4 hours of sleep.

North Kingstown RI High School Fundraising Event Jan 2013

The show was a HUGE hit. The kids loved it and they want to do another one.
The word got out on social media and know there is huge interest.

I will be happy to send you any photos for publicity if you'd like.

I would also be happy to recommend you to other music teachers in the state if that is OK.

Would you please check your availability for Thursday, April 11 for a 7 PM show?
We have no school the following day so Thursday would work great for us.
I have no doubt that the crowd size will be more than doubled.

Absolutely and Completely satisfied - Sweet 16 Party in Norwich CT area November 2011

We recently had Bruce for our daughters Sweet Sixteen Birthday Party and it was more than I expected.
When we booked Bruce we were looking for something that would be a little different
and entertaining for both our family and friends.
We had no idea how entertaining and worth the cost this decision would be.

The party was a huge success and will be talked about for years to come.
Bruce was a gentlemen and very entertaining for both the younger crowd and the older crowd.
We have not laughed that hard in a very long time.

Our sixteen year old was one of the lucky ones to be hypnotized and she was hilarious, along with all the others.
Bruce puts on a well organized and entertaining show and we will definatley recommend him to others
and use his services in the future as well.

Thank you Bruce for helping to make Kelseys Sweet Sixteen the party to remember!!!

Amesbury Middle School
(Mailed in Testimonial For May 26, 2011 School Assembly.)
The Amesbury Middle School community would like to thank you
for your excellent show at our school on Thursday May 26th, 2011.  
We recognize the sacrifices you made both in travel time and monetarily,
and appreciate your flexibility to meet our budget and time restrictions.  

Our EAST excellence celebration recognizes the commitment the 213 participants
made throughout the school year and throughout your show you mentioned their achievement,
positively reinforcing their hard work.  Your show was outstanding.  

The students and staff laughed so much and continued to talk about it for days.  
The first rate performance was thoroughly enjoyed by all attendees
and missed by those who were not invited.  So again, on behalf of the students and staff at
Amesbury  Middle School we would like to send our gratitude
to you and your assistant for your performance.

Sincerely, Amesbury Middle School EAST teachers and Students.

Everyone I spoke with had a terrific time!  
The intro was informative and something that people hadn't seen
from other hypnotist performances. It made everything more believable and real.

I know that you will be back to Granby HS again
and I look forward to seeing your show again!

Geoffrey Roning Group - Entertainment Agents Summer 09

Dear Bruce,  
I wanted to thank you once again for participating in our graduation season.

The client feedback on you and your show was very positive.  
Both the clients and I appreciate your professionalism, your flexibility,
and how easy it is to work with you.

It isn't easy to find a hypnotist that understands the needs of the
graduates and their parents,
and I am very happy that we have found one who does.

thanks you again!

Wendy Ronning

Montville High School Drama Club, CT

Enjoyed it very much.
Loved seeing the kids' responses.
Couldn't believe it!
Couldn't be easier to work with you.

Note forwarded to the principal and superintendent:

"The kids were well behaved, the kids on stage were wonderful, and
Bruce James had great control.  It was an outstanding fundraiser."

 ~ Dee Lamperelli

Simsbury High School - Prom May 09

Everyone I talked to loved the show.  
The kids didn't move once the show started. Very professional.  
I saw another show of this type at a graduation event
and the performer was a little too sarcastic with the kids.  
Excellent Show
