"Jay and his team at a Touch of Mystery put on an amazing event for our client.

I would recommend his company in a heart beat! Thanks Jay!"

"On behalf of all the employees of Unique Communication Solutions, a huge thank you to you and your company of talented performers for your production of Ruby's Riddle, during our 2012 Users Conference at Green Valley Ranch Resort!
Your professionalism, stellar customer service, and attention to detail is unmatched and your production exceeded our most optimistic expectations! Thank you for making our evening a huge success! Keep on knocking 'em dead!"
"I want to thank you and your team for putting on a fantastic show for us. It was very well produced and highly entertaining. I must admit that I was a little nervous about the level of interaction with our almost 300 guests, but you definitely exceeded my expectations and all of our guests walked away thoroughly happy. I'm looking forward to working with you again on a show for our guests. Thanks again!"
Robert Reichard, Director of Marketing
"Thank you so much for bringing out Music Can Be Murder. A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group has put on such a professional interactive show and our homeowners had the time of their lives. We were so happy that your actors played a sold out room of 135 and yet it felt like it was an intimate setting. Solera at Anthem would love to have you out again in the future. The entire evening was a huge success and we thank you for your fantastic presentation."
Deborah Scott, Special Events
"Thank you for making Silver & Freedman's holiday party such a success this year. The murder mystery was fantastic and everyone enjoyed it, but those of us that had the unique opportunity of working with you and participating in the show were even more impressed. Your professionalism (in the form of clear instructions and direct communication) was invaluable, and it was amazing to see how very successful we could be in such a short period of time. Your thoroughness and preparation drove the cast to success. You provided all of the information and tools a cast member could possibly need to self-prepare, and the result was magical! All of the firm's lawyers and employees were utterly fascinated with the show, and it was so amusing and exciting to see their happy reactions at members of their "cast" so fully playing such different roles than those which they are used to. Every company should be smart enough to hire you for a novel experience and good time. I could not recommend you or your murder mystery experience highly enough. Bravo to you!"
SILVER & FREEDMAN A Professional Law Corporation
"What a blast! A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group provided an evening of mystery, fun and laughs from minute one! The guests from Shade continue to rave about the performance and the amount of fun the entire audience had; thank you, thank you! Ken and I wanted to send a special note to about the amazing performance you and the other members displayed Friday, January 27, 2012 at Shade. The performance marked a grand start to the opening of our new restaurant and we can't wait to get started with you on a new production in the next month or two.
I will be very honest and say, I was extremely nervous about doing a murder mystery dinner so early on at Shade. As a brand new restaurant, I wasn't sure it was the right time to bring the theater to our new establishment. I have to say...with your attention to detail, help and support throughout the entire planning process from programming to advertising, to flyer design, the video clip, all the way to a practice run through with the cast, you made our entire team prepared for the evening. Our team was ready and ecstatic for the performance...and so were our guests.
Thank you again, A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group! We look forward to planning our next dinner theater with you very soon. Even though I'd like to keep you as our hidden gem, I would highly recommend other organizations use A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group!"
Ken & Karen Parris
"Thank you again for the outstanding performance that you and your team put on for the Pfizer Group. Your cast of professional actors truly impressed everyone in the group and had them thinking they were attending a show on the Las Vegas Strip. Kudos to you and your team for making me look like a star in front of a very important client. Everything from your detailed requests on the set-up to the dry run with the actors put me at ease and made my job a lot easier. Thank you again and I look forward to working with you in the near future."
Geoff Rhodes, Group Activities Coordinator
"It is with great pleasure that I recommend A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group and especially Natalie Carson for putting on a Flash Mob at our annual fundraising event. Natalie was professional and worked with us as we had changes up to the night of the event. We wanted our employees to be part of the dance and we had several different levels of skill. She made sure everyone felt comfortable no matter their skill level. She was good at communicating with me to make sure all of our expectations were met. I would recommend Natalie to lead anyone's Flash Mob. Thank you Natalie and A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group for helping make our event memorable. Can't wait to work with you again!"
Lynn Walsh, Director of Resident Services
"A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group performed for the opening reception of our company's client event. It was magnificent! Our group really enjoyed the liveliness and excitement. They portrayed different characters in the mystery with precision and flare. Our employees were woven into the story to personalize the event. All actors were of professional caliber and played their roles with determination. We would definitely hire A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group again."
Catherine Torrey, Sr. Sales Asst. QBE
"Our agency recently worked with Jay and his team of talented actors from A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group on an employee event for a client that is launching a product that is based on a popular board game. Jay and his team turned around a customized program in a very short period time. The result was tremendous. Jay ensured that every detail from costumes to dialogue was entertaining and overall perfect. I couldn't have been happier with the outcome."
Vice President, Purdue Marion & Associates Public Relations
"It is with great pride that I write you today regarding our recent Musical Mystery Event produced and directed by you. It was by far the most successful Murder Mystery event we have presented at the Fremont Hotel & Casino. We have presented many, many Murder Mysteries using a different producer and by far, you and your very competent cast surpassed all of the ones done prior.
Our guests were overwhelmed by the event and those guests who were included were truly touched by their involvement. We have received numerous telephone calls and letters asking when we would be doing the next event. This overwhelming response to the event has made us look at our event calendar and add additional Murderous events.
Your actors are superb, your script was hysterical and the music made all the difference. I can't thank you enough for your personal involvement in making this event as trouble-free as possible for my staff. It was a pleasure turning everything over to you and your folks.
You can be assured you are now the Producer of Choice for any "Murder" event the Fremont or our other Boyd properties do."
Howard Jochsberger Director of Marketing
"...Enthusiastic participation from our guests and the compliments we received were just a few of the signs that our events were a hit!... It was clear to see that the actors were truly enjoying themselves and it was contagious!"
"I am writing to thank you for an exceptional event for our annual Users Group conference this past October! Right from the start, you were very helpful when planning the entertainment for our evening event. You had many great ideas about how to get the audience involved and interacting, not only with your team, but with each other. The attendees really enjoyed the clues that they received throughout the conference leading up the event.
This detail added suspense and excitement to the event. Despite the fact that the venue was not the ideal place for a murder mystery dinner event, you and your team made it work, and it worked well. Not only were you very professional and very resourceful when dealt with some last minute logistical issues, but you and your team were also highly entertaining. We look forward to another opportunity to work with you and your team during our next trip to Las Vegas!"
"I just wanted to thank you for a great event on Friday! Everyone loved it and many of our employees had never participated in a mystery dinner before. The actors were great and we had a lot of fun. What I most appreciated was how easy you made my job! After everything was finalized I didn't have to do anything! Thank you again for all of your hard work, continual follow up, and a great company event!"
Erika Benedict, Special Projects Coordinator
"Just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed your presentation of "Music Can Be Murder" which was held here at the Eastside Cannery in June 2011. All of the 650 casino players that attended this event were BLOWN AWAY. This event went off on time and had no issues, which is very hard to pull off considering the number of attendees, but you and your crew did a very professional job.
The Eastside Cannery is looking forward to continuing to have a relationship with your company A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group. Our casino players are already asking when we will be having another dinner show production. I will be in contact with you in the very near future to book another event. Again, thank you for making this event a money maker for our casino."
Danny Flaherty, Player Development Manager
"As the owner/operators of the Las Vegas Creative Painting Convention we host a dinner event for our teachers and exhibitors as a venue for them to network and to provide us an opportunity to thank them for their business.
About two years ago, Jay & I attended one of the A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group Events over at the Gold Coast Casino and had such a great time we decided that we needed to have one of these events at our Convention.
This year we decided to give our teachers and exhibitors a break from the business aspect of the Convention and give them an opportunity to have a little fun. So of course we knew EXACTLY who to call, and we certainly weren't disappointed!
We were so excited to have A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group in the house, at the Tropicana for our Death by Chocolate event and it was so fun to play a part by having chocolate centerpieces made, sprinkling chocolate candy on the tables from the different chocolate companies (i.e. Hershey kisses, Dove & Ghirardelli Chocolates etc.) being represented and having a chocolate fountain at the entry to the dining area certainly set the mood to the event.
Jay Joseph and his staff are top notch when it comes to professionalism, yet easy going and the very best at incorporating client-oriented material into the script. They are well organized, and everything flows so smoothly, you virtually have nothing to worry about. You could not find a better team to work with, and that works so well together, it was absolutely flawless.
We highly recommend A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group to anyone looking for great entertainment for their next party or event!! It's also a wonderful means to provide training to businesses for team building!!"
Jayne Jones & Jay Sharp, Owners
"Our clients loved the Murder Mystery Event you put on. I had lots of clients come up to me after and thank me and told me what a great time they had. They enjoyed the fact that each table was working together to solve the murder mystery.
Kudos also to your staff; they did a remarkable job in character. We would definitely recommend your service to any company that was trying to entertain or teaching team building to their clients or employees. Thanks for the fantastic evening."
Jammie N. Avila, Vice President
"Thank you for making our Murder Mystery Night such an incredible success. Your company was a dream to work with. Our members were pleased with the entire night."
"I am writing to recommend the services of A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group. We had a company Summit out in Las Vegas and hired them on to do a Murder Mystery for our company. I was very satisfied with the way they took charge and set-up and of course performed. It was a very enjoyable dinner for one of our nights. This was a great team building experience for all of us. They do an excellent job, were very punctual, and worked well with the Hotel and our request. Their rates were very affordable for such a large audience.
I'm happy to recommend A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group for any team building experience. They were very engaging with the whole audience."
Becky Crenshaw, Project Support Assistant
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for making our banquet in May at the Aladdin Resort & Casino one of those evenings that were "special". Your company performed beyond anyone's expectations; even mine.
The performance "All's Fair in Love & Music" was truly one where all of your actors performed so well, that during the cocktail party, many of our members were still talking about all of the laughter generated by your actors. The entertainment was funny & very good. Thank you for your cooperation with our crazy schedule of events.
The flexibility and professionalism of your team was exceeded only by their willingness to make this event a special one. They took care of all the details and "rolled with the punches" when needed. I like that. If there is an opportunity to utilize A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group again, ASPA will definitely do so. You and I have already spoken about our 2004 convention in Baltimore, MD.
I would be pleased to recommend your company to anyone planning on having a different "twist" to the "typical" banquet or evening event, and would like to do so with a group that is organized and willing to bend over backwards to make your evening a special one."
Al Dimperio, Executive Director
"Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa would like to thank you for a fantastic event. Your "Murder Wasn't on the Menu" mystery show enveloped our guests in a spectacular evening full of laughter, mystery and intrigue. This event was one of the most talked about events by our VIP Casino guests, who enjoyed every moment of interaction with your professional cast while they stayed in character during the entire show.
Your company definitely exceeded our expectations and provided the "WOW" factor we seek to provide in our events. We appreciate your work and are glad to tell people we recommend A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group!"
Matthew Bruce, Casino Marketing Manager
"I had the pleasure of engaging "A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group" for an intimate client event at the JW Marriott Resort. From the onset of planning, Jay and the A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group team were incredibly organized with tools for customization of the storyline, and adaptation to the event venue.
The cast was fun and interactive, and worked hard to make sure that their product was of the highest caliber for the genre. I would not hesitate to utilize them again when a clients entertainment needs call for a custom Murder Mystery."
Stephanie Arone, President
"Jay Joseph and A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group quickly created an interactive Murder Mystery for us on short notice (in less than 4 days). Jay and his team incorporated comedy and improv, which was tailored to our group throughout the event. The actors knew how to "pull" many of our employee's right into the storyline which made our cocktail hour and dining experience more interactive than we imagined. The event was not a show or a performance, rather it was an interactive Team Building activity that everyone enjoyed. Clearly, the actors love what they do and it showed! I found them to be a professional company built on success and we are looking forward to another Team Building activity with Jay Joseph and his team."
"Please accept this as a letter of recommendation for Jay Joseph and A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group.
We have had the pleasure of having A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group perform at our annual convention this past weekend. The theatre troupe was amazing and engaged our attendees. It was a supreme pleasure and joy collaborating with Mr. Joseph. The performance was an unqualified success."
"WOW, is all I can say. This was my first event having a mystery theatre as part of the guest experience so I was not sure what to expect and if the guests would get into it or not. Well, all I can say is they couldn’t have had more fun. Jay, you and the whole A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group team did such a fantastic job! All the guests were so intrigued and had so much fun getting clues from the cast and solving the crime. It truly was just as much fun for the young guests as the adults. I will definitely keep you and A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group in mind for future events and look forward to working with you and the team .

"Magical Forest entrance and then at the tree lighting ceremony just really brought the magic to the forest last night. I loved the costumes and they were all so delightful. It was an amazing night. Please let them know how very much we appreciate them coming out. You have been such a pleasure to work with and I cannot begin to tell you how much it means to all of us personally and to the people we serve at Opportunity Village to have A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group on our team."

“Your presentation absolutely exceeded our expectations...you were able to coordinate at the last minute and deliver a performance for all to enjoy. I would definitely use your services in the future!”
"A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group is one of the best evenings you can ACTUALLY experience. Participating in the crime investigation in this often madcap night of 'Who done it?', is hilarious, thought provoking, and sometimes lucrative. Harassing a troupe of actors is the icing in the cake! And I should know!"
