Don Deich Vlad the Magician North Carolina Confirmed 2023 Debut sponsored by Bling Bling Jam

Mysterious, hauntingly original, and completely innovative- these words best describe the Gothic Magic of Vlad. While some magicians create a show, Vlad created a genre of magic. This charmingly dark and slightly twisted style known as Gothic Magic stems from the heart of the classic horror genre. Combining this style with amazing stories, Vlad creates a performance that’s like “watching Stephen King live”. Take a step inside and give into your fears. Vlad has been entertaining audiences for over 30 yrs.

Ken Stillman has pioneered the balloon industry since the early 90s A few of his personal accomplishments include His life size Princesses, Awesome Bouquets, Super Heroes, Balloon Beads, and His famous Hitch Hiker Hat.

Lavinia Solano of Art by Lavinia is by no means a conventional New York entertainer. By combining creativity with an unconventional, non-traditional attitude, Lavinia has carved out quite a unique niche for herself ... coffin case and all!
Based in Staten Island, NY, she began her balloon twisting and face painting journey in 2011. After adding balloon marquees in 2020, she has stayed consistently busy between working events and custom deliveries. Focusing primarily on air-filled, twisted designs, she likes to keep things practical and fun.
Lavinia is excited to be representing Betallic this summer at the Bling Bling Jam in Vegas! 
Check out Art by Lavinia on Facebook and Instagram.

Teaching for the first time at the Bling Bling Jam 2023! Balloon Josh is an award winning balloon artist from Houston, TX. He has been twisting balloons for over 31 years, and is best known for his quick, creative line work, his fast balloon dresses, and his viral TikTok videos. 


A former MMA fighter and theater major, Brian Potvin has taken his creativity and determination to new levels with the help of balloons. As the Ballusionist, Brian now performs on TV, at posh parties, art events and corporate celebrations creating unbelievable works of balloon sculpture.

In 2003, divided by his passions, Brian began working as a clown at parties to help pay the bills. He immediately saw the opportunity that was ignored by his competitors. As a clown, he had the chance to reinvent himself constantly, to create, to work with people and to expand his knowledge of the arts; all while having a blast. In a few years, he found that he could create anything he wanted with balloons. He also found his voice in creating the balloons — making jokes, amping up the party and creating a whirlwind of wonder.

The makeup came off and he started spending hours twisting latex to make the things he loved, like movie and comic characters, as well as anything he could imagine. Since then, he’s had the chance to share his balloon creations on TV shows around the world with hundreds of celebrities including Gwen Stefani, Dean Kane, Sascha Baron Cohen and David Arquett.
