Entertainment buying is a lot like buying a used car. When you buy a used car, it is nice to have a reputable mechanic on your side. That is where we come in. We have been buying and selling quality entertainment for forty years.
Entertainers are not cheap, and knowing which performers are reputable and guaranteed hits at your event can be difficult to know unless you have followed these entertainers for years. That's what we do at Alan Sands Entertainment.
I am Alan Sands, and I have spent my life working in a few major markets - Fairs & Festivals, High School Late Night Parties, and C ...

Alan Sands Entertainment - Other Magic & Illusion Act - San Mateo, California Event Location: Wisconsin Event Type: corporate event
“I keep hearing 'it was the best Holiday Party we've had' and 'I haven't laughed so hard in a long time.' Not one negative comment has reached my ears (and they hear everything). So, thank you, very much, for cutting our bar tab in half, and making us laugh until it hurt!“ Watch video testimonials here: High Schools - Corporate, Fairs, Festivals & School -

I, Alan Sands, began travelling with my father, George Sands (magician and creator of 17 books on magic, balloon sculpture and puppetry) when I was only three years old. "People ask how long I've been performing? Since before I was born!" says Sands. "My father was a professional entertainer."
At age 12 (1972), we moved to the heart of the Catskill Mountains resorts in upstate New York. For the next nine years, I did everything imaginable to entertain the guests one can imagine. I was a member of the social & activities staff in three hotels. I did lights and sound in the nightclubs, ran co ...

Meet the Act

I like using the metaphor of "used cars." To buy a used car, unless it is virtually new, you really can not judge what this car has been through and how good it will be in the future. Therefore, I depend on reputable mechanics to inspect that car for me and do research and tell me if that make and model car is sound historically.
That is where I come in. All I do is entertainment. I not only go to see shows, watch videos, talk to other producers, agents, buyers of talent, but I attend trade shows where booths line the halls, acts showcase, and I go to events where performers are doing their ...

Additional Information

Alan carries a Two-Million dollar insurance policy at all times that extends to blanket cover the entertainers I work with.
I work ONLY with "clean - family appropriate" acts. I do not represent naughty or dirty performers.
I have not only my own 40+ years of experience to draw from, but my sister also operates a San Francisco Bay Area Talent Agency that knows every San Francisco Bay Area performer in the business. My family have a long history of working in entertainment - See: for more information.

Virtual Services Offer

I know over 30 professional mentalists from all over the USA and Canada. I know dozens more jugglers and hundreds of magicians. Ventriloquists are a lot harder to find. I only know a dozen of them.
