Join us at “Le Bal des Revenants” (the Spirit Ball)

I'm delighted to be joining fellow mystery performers Andy Morgan, Joe Cabral, and Joshua Bruneau in presenting “Le Bal des Revenants” (the Spirit Ball) at the Stanley-Whitman House in Farmington, Connecticut on Friday and Saturday, October 29th & 30th and Friday and Saturday, November 5th and 6th, 2021.

It is a show about "reconnecting" which will let audience members reconnect to the past, to the present and to the future.

Many in our communities were isolated from friends, from family and from colleagues during the pandemic. Now that restrictions are lifting we are all adjusting to the new ways in which we will resume our daily lives.

This show is designed to let the audience members celebrate the what lies ahead - a returning to our world - a new world that has changed in so many ways. Audience members will experience three miniature performance pieces set in different rooms of the Stanley Whitman House.

These performances are designed to help people re-capture a sense of mystery and wonder that we can experience. I felt the Stanley Whitman House was the perfect place for a celebration of reconnecting after the pandemic.

Over the years of its existence, it has been many things to many people: a home, a refuge, a place to learn about the past and present as well as a place where through art and music people can experience a sense of community.

It is my wish that those who attend Le Bal des Revenants leave with a renewed sense of wonder feeling of connection. I look forward to seeing you there!

Tickets are available here.

Hello again!

I don't know why, but today I had the sudden urge to post something here on my website. It's not something that I've even thought about doing in a very, very long time. Only after opening the page did I realize the significance of today's date -- it has been exactly one year since I made my last post. It boggles my mind to think that an entire year has slipped by. It feels like a year lost in time.

One year ago today I had just finished my performances of "Michael Jon's Wicked Thoughts" at the Greenbelt Arts Center. It was a short but incredibly satisfying run of my new theater show. I remain extremely pleased with what we were able to accomplish in that production. "Wicked Thoughts" had been in development for several years and it felt like it finally all came together. The show was a joy to perform. I'm grateful we were able to do the show before the pandemic shut down all live entertainment. I don't think any of us imagined that we would be dark for so long.

Now, a full year later, the warmer weather, sunshine and fresh spring air is once again carrying the energy of hope and renewal. It looks like we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and imagine a time in the near future where we can safely get together once again. I had my first conversation today about scheduling a performance for later this year. I can't tell you how good that feels. It's like waking up from a groggy state of hibernation. It's wonderful.

The past 12 months have been a wild ride for all of us. I hope that you are as ready as I am to get back out into the world and reconnect with each other in person. The lockdown has been particularly devastating for restaurants, entertainment and the arts. But pendulums swing both ways and I believe that the end of this pandemic may bring an explosion of new life and energy.

I have no idea when I will be able to do a live show again. But I think I speak for the entire entertainment industry when I say that we want nothing more than to be able to get back to work as quickly as we can. When that time comes, I do hope you will come out and join us! 

Who knows, we may end up having a roaring 20's after all!

 

A Review: On the Art of Mind Reading


A review of "Michael Jons: Wicked Thoughts!"
by Julie Rapp, Greenbelt News Review

 

Michael Jons, a self-described mind reader and psychic entertainer, brought his thought-provoking, interactive show, “Michael Jons: Wicked Thoughts!” to the Greenbelt Arts Center (GAC) stage the weekend of March 6 to 8. The audience was treated to an evening of often hilarious and clever demonstrations of his modern take on the art of mind reading. Jons has been entertaining audiences with his psychic powers since 2014 in his residency show, “Michael Jons: Psychic Cabaret” first in Fort Lauderdale and then at the Four Seasons Hotel in D.C.

Jons began by asking audience participants to write something embarrassing or perhaps wicked that they had experienced on a card which was then dropped into the “Box of Shame.” Later in the show Jons proved his mind-reading skill by reaching into the box with a comical flair, picking out a card and humorously reading out loud the embarrassing moment or shameful action of an audience member. He then canvassed the audience and finally settled on one person who eventually owned up to the card being theirs. He continued to demonstrate his intriguing abilities to read, influence and predict thoughts by engaging audience members in games which highlighted techniques of manipulation that utilize a mixture of intuition and human psychology.

With his remarkable feats of persuasion, Jons demonstrated how easily minds can be controlled at times when people think they are making a decision using their own free will. He warned the audience to be aware of mind manipulation techniques used every day by advertisers, politicians, clergy and nefarious types on social media. His recommendation to combat this intrusion is to employ what he calls “kindergarten rules.”

The “King of Cartomancy,” as he describes himself, closed the show by using a deck of cards to predict the future. He accurately guessed the card each audience member was holding and had a highly intuitive and thought-provoking interpretation of each card.
 

 

Psychic Cabaret Audiences are the Best!

I have such a great time meeting the people who come to the show. I warn audiences that the show is really all about them, and ultimately only as interesting as they make it. I have to say, DC audiences come through and help create really fun and amazing evenings. They keep me very entertained and feeling very grateful.

As always, THANK YOU to everyone who takes the time to write an online review. I truly appreciate the kind words.


My mind was blown by this guy. He is a gifted psychic...was so much more than I had anticipated. I want to take every skeptic I know to see him. And in addition to his amazing gift, he is entertaining and feel-good. My friends and I laughed, cried, and were left in awe. This will not be the last time I see his show.

This really did blow my mind! Michael got EVERYTHING right!!! It was so interesting. He was so entertaining and fun! This was an interactive show and Michael was very nice to volunteers too. I would highly recommend this if you are looking for a fun night out.
Lisa E. from Bethesda, MD on 8/18/2019 via Yelp


How'd he do that? Loved the show, very entertaining and cute, intimate venue. So glad we went and highly recommend. Kim M. from Springfield, VA on 8/22/2019 via Yelp

MICHAEL JONS LIVE - MORE THAN MIND GAMES! Comes to Tawas Bay Playhouse.

Michael Jons LIVE at Tawas Bay Playhouse

I'm reallly thrilled to be returning to the Tawas Bay Playhouse in East Tawas this July with my fun and amazing new show "Michael Jons LIVE - More than Mind Games!"

The benefit performances on Friday, July 26 and Saturday, July 27 celebrate the 40th Anniversary season of the Tawas Bay Players and supports their work in creating and promoting the arts in the community.

This is the third year the I will performing at the Tawas Bay Playhouse. I grew up spending all my summers in Tawas. As a kid, I used to perform shows for neighbors on the beach with the seawall as my stage. I love that I can keep that tradition alive all these years later and support the Tawas Bay Players!

This years show features all new, never before seen feats of amazement. I challenge myself to come up with an entirely new show for Tawas audiences every year. This year is no exception. I have to admit that it's a bit scary, but also exciting, to try out new material in front of audiences for the first time. You never know what's going to happen! This year's show is inspired by the games that my family played during our summers on the beach. 

Come see what audiences have described as, "A mind-bending, gasp-inducing bucket of fun!" The show is intended for adults but appropriate for audiences of all ages.

Tickets for the 7:00PM performances on Friday, July 26 and Saturday, July 27, 2019 are available online at MichaelJons.com and at the Tawas Bay Playhouse box office.

Michael Jons Raising Spirits in the Crypt coming October 2019

If gathering in an underground cemetery vault after dark one night this October sounds like your kind of fun, do I have a show for you!  "Raising Spirits in the Crypt" will premiere October, 2019 at Ivey Hill Cemetery, in Alexandria, VA.

My artform has roots in the work of 19th century spirit mediums who held seances in the hope of contacting the spirit world. I've been a collector of haunted artifacts and antique spirit seance apparatus for many years, but only recently have I considered actually trying them out. For real.

Ivey Hill Cemetery in Alexandria has kindly granted us permission to use their underground vault. I'm not exactly sure what will happen when we attempt to contact the spirit world this October around All Hallows Eve when the veil between worlds is thinnest, but I can assure you that it will be a spooky good time. 

We all love a good ghost story. This is your chance to be part of one!

Absolutely entertaining, fun, learning so much about the history of psychics, being totally amazed, sometimes literally unbelievably so, but ... there it was. Michael Jons is a teacher and showman all wrapped in one person. The Eno Wine Bar downstairs lounge/performance space is an intimate but very comfortable setting for 20 or so people to relax with a glass of excellent wine for and have a wonderful time laughing and interacting and being really perplexed for well over an hour.
Richard D., Titusville, FL on 11/20/2018 via Yelp


I was looking for something interesting to do for my birthday and this Psychic Cabaret fit the bill. I loved the small venue, the delicious food and wine from ENO, but, most of all, the show! There were lots of opportunities for audience participation and the build up was enjoyable for both the skeptics and believers in my party. We had a really great time and walked away asking each other, "How did he do that?!?!" I'd love to experience the show again and highly recommend it for a fun evening out.
Dina S., Westlake, MD on 11/19/2018 via Yelp


Really a mind changer. Michael brings the history of the craft and his engaging style to his show and makes even the non-believers (like me) want to at least consider his gift as some type of truth. Either way you'll have a lot of laughs and learn a bit more about what 'reality' truly means.
John S., Rockville, MD on 11/18/2018 via Yelp


I think we went into the show as skeptics and came out true believers in the capabilities of Michael Jon. We were blown away by a few things he did. We are planning to go back to see his new show when it comes to DC.
Stephanie S., Washington, DC on 11/5/2018 by via Goldstar


The show is amazing! I saw it tonight. Randomly, Michael asked if someone wanted to participate in the show. I did. Michael read my thoughts and wrote them down. Unbelievable! A lot of fun! Highly recommend.

October and November shows are already SOLD OUT, but a few tickets remain for the December performance of Micheal Jons' Psychic Cabaret. We are working on finalizing the 2019 show schedule and hope to have more dates and tickets available soon.

It's hard to know what to expect from a "Psychic Cabaret", but people who have seen the show all agree its, "amazing", "entertaining", and "fun"! I'm grateful for the kind words that people have shared about the show. Check out some of our recent audience reviews then grab your seats and join us at the Psychic Cabaret!


Not sure what to expect from a Psychic Cabaret, I joined my daughter and her BF on a rainy Sunday afternoon at the Eno Bar - only to be amazed, entertained and captivated by Michael Jons. We had a convenient AirBnB in Georgetown and missed the intermittent showers to trek down to see the show. We could not have been happier with the mix of wonderful demonstrations of stage presence and audience interactions. If you like small venues where you get to  participate in feats o magic - go see Michael Jons!
Richard M on 9/17/2018 via Yelp


Very entertaining! He’s quite amazing. A fun afternoon.
Brenda H on 10/8/2018 via Goldstar
