ABOUT DANNY RAY
18 YEARS AND GOING STRONG
Danny Ray has been passionate about magic since the age of 10. He started performing magic professionally at 15 in restaurants. His passion, knowledge and skill continued to grow through college. After obtaining his Masters of Divinity, he started what he thought would be his lifetime career as a youth pastor. Even during this time, he was continually using magic to engage, entertain and teach youth. The events Danny put on in his small town in Southern California kept getting bigger and bigger. It was obvious to all around him that magic was what he needed to be doing full time.
In 2003, he took the plunge and became a full time magician. One of his signature and unique talents is weaving stories into his show. This allows him to create unique experiences for each event that he performs in and is one of the reasons that he is asked back again and again once an audience has seen him.
Never content to just have one routine and do it with perfection, Danny is always inventing, learning and perfecting new magic to amaze and delight. Danny has traveled to every state and nineteen countries around the world. He’s had the honor of performing numerous times at the Magic Castle in Hollywood. He has done over 4,000 shows and puts 100% into each and every one. His career has encompassed performing for thousands and also very small, intimate events. Aside from live events, he is also active on TikTok, Instagram and YouTube and has done several appearances on TV and film.
When Danny is not going to events, he enjoys being at home with his lovely wife and three great kids. He also runs with his irrepressible dog, Chloe. Danny helps out at his home church when he can. He has mentored many upcoming magicians and is dedicated to the art of close magic.
Gretchen started working with Danny Ray in 2020. She brings a unique aspect to the company as a former business owner, a youth ministry leader and homeschooling mom. Gretchen is absolutely invaluable and is helping Danny to pivot this ministry to more of an online presence during these crazy times that have prevented many of the Danny Ray events from happening. Gretchen has a huge heart and is waiting to help bring Danny Ray to you (virtually or live)!
