Spring Break 2014!

Spring break – longer days and more sunshine can bring more joy to our own lives.  We, at Wand Enterprises, are busy “gearing up” for the high school prom/graduation season and are really looking forward to entertaining the many students on their important night.  If you have any questions, you can navigate to our High School Prom/Project Grad pages by clicking HERE Things are good at Wand Enterprises and we look forward to some positive developments in the near future.  As always, don’t be afraid to contact me for any questions or comments. Have a hypnotic day! Jim Wand  

Happy New Year 2014 – Vegas Show!!

Happy New Year 2014!

My schedule starts this weekend in California (followed by Nebraska, Iowa, and Wisconsin).  From there I work on a cruise ship for Carnival, then back my home/office in the Midwest.  Even though it is extremly cold here, everywhere I go I am met with a warm welcome which “takes the edge off”.

My staff and I have come up with great new show ideas for 2014 including appearances by Honey Boo Boo and cast members from Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, The Walking Dead, The Big Band Theory, Duck Dynasty, and more…  I have new music, new skits, and much more, that will keep you “on the edge of your seat!”

That time of year

Wow, Thanksgiving, then Xmas and we start all over again. Another year is about to pass for Wand Enterprises with a number of exciting things happening. We have expanded our artist roster to over 100 including “The Northern Entrancer” – Kenda Summers located in Canada, have issued over 700 contracts and have had the opportunity to work with some of the nicest people in the country. Many people leave work to have fun, I go to work to have fun. It has been an amazing 25 years for Wand Enterprises and hopefully will have many more memories to share next year. I am often asked where is the most interesting place I have ever worked to which I always reply “well, here of course”. Remember “no matter how high it’s stacked or how bad it smells there’s got to be a pony in there somewhere”.


Myself and everyone at Wand Enterprises wishes you and yours a safe and festive holiday season.

Update on Fall Tour

My fall college tour is going great. I just love to work with programming boards, their advisers and the wonderful students who attend the performances. So far I have been in 14 states, completed 43 performances and entertained tens of thousands of people. I look forward to the remainder of this month and especially October 31st when I will be doing 4 performances “back to back” at the National FFA Convention in Louisville, Ky. Each audience will have an audience of 2000 plus young people and advisers from all over the country. With being a former FFA member and lifetime member of The FFA Alumni, I have been involved in this event for over 20 years and enjoy each and every performance. The rest of the fall will be spent continuing to perform on numerous college campuses, casinos, conventions, and corporate events. What a great way to make a living, entertaining and educating at the same time. Have a great day!

Fall is coming…

August is a busy month for myself and Wand Enterprises.  I start off with a week at sea with the SAE leadership cruise, then I start my summer/fall college tour of 60 schools in approximately 90 days in 30 different states.  Presently, we are working on new music, current trends, and a variety of skits that have a “high attraction” to the audience we are performing for. Typically, I like to throw something on my Facebook page before and after each event to highlight what could and did happen.  Be sure to keep updated on it by ‘liking’ the page here: Jim Wand’s College Facebook Page. Hope to see you all there!

Summer is here!

WOW! June is already half over, where does time go. I just got back from attending the HypnoThoughts Live convention in Las Vegas. Over 300 hypnotists from all over the world converged on the New Orleans Resort and Casino to learn, be entertained, and create and renew relationships with others in the field. I had the opportunity to meet a lot of great people, spend time with Kenda Summers – “The Northern Entrancer”  from Canada who I am mentoring and visit most of the live hypnosis shows playing in Vegas at the present time. I am amazed at the interest in stage hypnosis by most of the attendees and was constantly bombarded with questions which I was more than happy to answer. In my estimation there will never be enough qualified “stage hypnotists” to “spread the word and share the joy” of what this wonderful world of entertainment can provide. I was very impressed with the organization of the event, the knowledge of the speakers, and the many resources that were made available to those in attendance. I would highly recommend anyone in the field of hypnosis attend next years’ event. Have a great summer everyone!
