“I have known Ariel and Rochelle for years now through them entertaining at our Fair. Their show is awesome and the magic done is amazing.
They are a pleasure to work with." 
G. Dol, Manager/Fair Organizer, Saanich Fair, Saanich, BC

“An amazing show recommended for all ages. One of a kind.
Ariel and Rochelle have performed weekly shows for six months at our Tehuacan Theatre in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and again in 2011. Their show has always received
great reviews and I hope they keep coming back!”

“Our tiny northern Yukon school had the distinct pleasure of hosting Ariel Morales and Rochelle Allison of ¿Qué Bolá? Magic this winter (2010). The performance was extremely well received by the whole community. The performers’ lively personalities, sparkling chemistry, and playful sense of humour shone through in this engaging magic show. Audience participation was a major aspect of the show, and was a significant source of the laughter that was evident throughout the evening. Seeing the wonder in the eyes of the audience, adult and child alike, made the performance especially enjoyable. It was a performance that lingered in the minds of the audience members long after the performers left town, as we were left to wonder, ‘How DID they do that?’
We were truly lucky to have been able to experience such a professional and memorable production.”
S. Climie, Principal, Chief Zzeh Gittlit School, Old Crow, YT
 “Our students were amazed and entertained throughout this wonderful show. Ariel’s skill and personality made the experience thrilling and funny from beginning to end. This was perhaps the best show I have witnessed at our school. I would highly recommend this production for your school.”
 C. Williams, Principal, 150 Mile House Elementary School

“¿Qué Bolá?’s performances are a magical dream. Rarely do such talented and amazing Illusionists become available for Canadian Audiences. Our Fair audience response to ¿Qué Bolá? was tremendous and we’ve already asked them to make next years fair dates available.”
     J.D. Scott, Vice Chair, Moose Jaw Exhibition, Saskatchewan
“WOW!!! ¿Qué Bolá? Magic. Absolutely fabulous entertainment!!! Great for the entire family. Loved by all!!! It’s easy to see how well received they were as they walked through our Fairgrounds. Between shows they were stopped, questioned, admired, and photographed every few steps they took. If you didn’t have them this year - book early before they are all booked up - excellent excellent value - worth every penny they charge and then some. They’ll be back with us!!!”
              K. Currie, President CVEX, British Columbia

Ariel and Rochelle were awesome!!
Audience, both young and old loved them, it turned out to be a
great day, thanks so much!”
A. Spiers, Okotoks Children’s Festival, Alberta

Our organization recently presented ¿Qué Bolá? Magic
at our children's festival in early September (2007). They were absolutely the hit of the event!
... Their music, magic, costumes, and props were all masterfully crafted and choreographed, and
certainly appropriate for an all-ages audience. Ariel and Rochelle were very friendly and professional to work with, and we would love to have them back either at our children's festival, or at a theatre event ... 
We are very proud to have talented entertainers of this calibre living in our area ... I would 
heartily recommend ¿Qué Bolá? Magic for school, festival, theatre, fundraising, or corporate performances.”
D. Renz, General Manager, Sid Williams Theatre Society, Courtenay, BC

“Everything was great - we were thrilled with the day and Ariel and Rochelle’s performances were wonderful! ¿Qué Bolá? was a huge hit at our festival - even the other performers were amazed at the illusions! The audience was mesmerized! Rochelle and Ariel have a warm stage manner and were easy to work with - weather postponed their second show for awhile - but their performance drew people in and everyone was amazed!”
         R. Dyck, Performance Director, Bow Island Children’s Festival, Alberta

“Thank YOU!!  We’ve had nothing but rave reviews on your performances. You guys were AWESOME. We would like to know if you would be interested in coming back next year... 
Again, thank you so much!”
D. Metzmeir, Social Club President, Times Colonist Newspaper, Victoria, BC

“Westerner Park had the pleasure of having ¿Qué Bolá? Magic perform at our Westerner Days Fair & Exposition. Rochelle and Ariel’s unique brand of magic and illusions combined, is certainly a hit with audiences of all ages. An added bonus is the way they integrate Ariel’s Cuban background of rhythm and dance into the performance that just makes you feel good. Westerner Park is pleased to endorse ¿Qué Bolá? Magic as excellent family entertainment.”
M. Gustum, Marketing Manager, Westerner Park, Red Deer, Alberta

“ Ariel and Rochelle, the magic show was a highlight of the Fair.
Thanks so much for participating in this year’s Fair In The Square (2007).”
M. Fera, Events Coordinator, Place des Arts, Coquitlam, BC

“Our performance space is a bit difficult; out in the open,
 lots of foot traffic, food services, gift shop, lots of distractions. Ariel and Rochelle adapted to the challenges, grabbed an audience within minutes and kept them fully entertained until the end of the shows. Our audience encompasses a broad international spectrum with varied levels of understanding the English language and the ¿Qué Bolá? Magic act kept everyone laughing and engaged no matter where they were from. While I wish our outdoor venue could accommodate more of the large illusions, this was seriously good close-up magic with a fresh sense of humour.
A delight to watch and enjoyed by all throughout the various performances.”
C. Moddle, Manager of Arts and Entertainment, Butchart Gardens, Victoria, BC

“¿Qué Bolá? Magic is a wonderful theatrical experience that
creates an atmosphere of buoyant good humour and amazement in audiences of all ages.
Ariel’s magic is first-rate. The minute the music started and the show began, I could hear the audience laughter and awestruck gasps, and the mood didn’t let up until well after the show ended. Next day at the café, all the talk was about which act was best and ‘how the heck did Ariel DO that?’ The show gave so much pleasure with a mix of sophistication and simplicity. ¿Qué Bolá? has a knack for community-building; somehow the show made us all feel like one big, very happy family. It was definitely a good thing to do and people are already asking for a repeat.”
S. McDonnell, Education Society Board, Hornby Island, BC

“Rochelle and Ariel were fun, exciting and engaging for children and adults alike as main stage entertainment. The show featured an assortment of well-executed illusions that had all of us scratching our heads because we could NOT figure them out - even though we were stage-side at a very close distance. As walk-around grounds entertainers, they gathered a large crowd of children and their parents as well as teens. Rochelle and Ariel were professional and friendly to work with. I recommend them.”
M. Schmidt, Entertainment Buyer, Regina Canada Day Children’s Stage, Saskatchewan

“¿Qué Bolá? Magic has been a feature showcase at several BCAAFE Conferences and have proven to consistently amaze and captivate audiences of all ages! It is a pleasure to work with professionals like Ariel and Rochelle, who strive to ensure their performance is always fresh and offer the flexibility to customize their show to meet the requirements of any event.”
J. Saw, Executive Director, BC Association of Agricultural Fairs and Exhibitions

“We were fortunate to have ¿Qué Bolá? Magic Show at our Weyburn Agricultural Society Fair on July 2, 3 and 4, 2012. Ariel and Rochelle put on a professionally good stage show with colourful costumes, lively music and amazing illusions. They were entertaining and very respectful of their audience, young and adult alike. We would like to give them a positive endorsement to let others know how much we appreciated having them perform for our fair patrons.”
N. Keefe, Attractions Director, Weyburn Agricultural Society, Saskatchewan

“¿Qué Bolá? Magic performed to a packed house on Denman Island.
With humour and inventiveness, the duo of Ariel Morales and Rochelle Allison offered
a sparkling evening of magic, from grand illusions to close-up, all spiced with hot Cuban salsa,
dance routines, sparkling sets and costume changes.
The performance thrilled young and old (you’re never too old for this stuff) and laughter permeated the entire show, as audience members found themselves on stage at times. But the true gem of this show is the artistry of Ariel Morales. The Cuban-born magician has been practicing his craft since he was a mere five years old and he brings an honest professionalism to the stage. One feels they are watching a true master and one who loves his work. The evening was an inspired delight and
we can’t wait to have them back!”
C. Minden, Board of Directors, Arts Denman, Denman Island,BC

“I am pleased to provide a reference for ¿Qué Bolá? Magic.
Ariel and Rochelle performed at the Tidemark Theatre’s annual Children’s Festival (2006),
headlining on our indoor stage with Pied Pumkids. Rochelle and Ariel walked the difficult line of presenting
illusion to entertain children with the correct amount of clarity to ensure amazement. Their show was enthusiastically received - children and parents left the Theatre excited by the performance. 
I would gladly host them again at the Tidemark.”
C. Bate, General Manager, Tidemark Theatre, Campbell River, BC

“I am so impressed by the show that ¿Qué Bolá? Magic put on at the Vancouver Island Exhibition. Classy, professional, and their attention to detail just describes their act off the stage. This act has all the thrills, fun and excitement that kept all the people who watched enthralled. I hope you get a chance to experience the magic and illusions that ¿Qué Bolá? Magic will bring to your venue.”
D. Boyd, 2nd Vice President & Main Stage Director
VIEX, Nanaimo, British Columbia

“¿Qué Bolá? offers a great evening of magic, fun, humour and surprise. 
Ariel and Rochelle give a show full of heart, that leaves a smile on your face and desire to come back again and again.
Having worked with many artists and magicians over the years, it is nice to work with people who are so easy to work with and willing to do what is needed to get the show up and running with no drama.They are willing to please and 
will cater their show to what is needed for any venue. 
I so appreciated their hard work and look forward to when we work together again.”
     M. Shapiro, Cruise Director, ms Paul Gauguin

“Staff and students loved this performance!!!!!! 
Both performers were great - entertaining and fun. The best part for me was watching the primary students who were watching with their mouths open in surprise and awe. It was absolute entertainment! I would highly recommend it!!”
L. Crosby, Principal, Gilmore Elementary School

“I can’t tell you how much everyone loved it! There were tears, laughter, totally stunned looks and amazement. The reactions from the students were just priceless! The performers had the audience in the palm of their hands for the entire show! I would highly recommend this to any school needing a good laugh! The staff and students were still talking about it today!
Thanks so much!!”
K.LaRoue, Principal, Lynnmour Elementary School
