Master Hypnotist Cyrus honours late father Joey Knight on 2011 Atlantic Canadian Tour
Fans everywhere agree that Master Hypnotist Cyrus is single-handedly changing the face of stage hypnosis entertainment. The son of late country music icon Joey Knight, who toured professionally in the early ‘80s across Canada and the United States, Jason “Cyrus” Vautour is a talented stage entertainer in his own right – deeply knowledgeable in the age-old art, modern-science, and philosophy of hypnosis.
Ever-inspired by his father’s talent and legacy, Vautour is launching an Atlantic Canadian tour dedicated to the man who fostered his love of entertainment and gave him the tools for success in life.
“I’d like to let people know how important Dad was to our team, and how he set everything up for the success we are having today,” said Vautour. “The big tour seemed to come together after Dad had gone, almost as if he had put it together for us.”
As Master Hypnotist Cyrus, Vautour will be performing in locations across the Maritimes, including Bathurst, Halifax, Saint John, Moncton, and Charlottetown, stopping at The Fredericton Playhouse on Friday, October 21 at 8pm.
Vautour describes his highly anticipated performances as a reflection of the important lessons he learned from his father and the confidence he was given as an entertainer to captivate audiences and make people happy. Explains Vautour, “Dad always told me ‘Always give them 120 percent every time, no matter if you’re sick or tired. They paid money to see you – be the best you can be.’”
Vautour has taken that mantra and weaved it into a successful stage show where the powerful use of suggestion has enabled volunteers to become part of the action as talented musicians, hilarious ballet dancers, rock ‘n’ roll legends, and all-around stars for the night! Guests are engaged and encouraged to participate in a wide variety of demonstrations designed to leave spectators amazed and thoroughly entertained by the phenomena.
While the evening promises to deliver first-rate entertainment, one thing is for sure: Vautour will pour his heart into what has made, and continues to make this Minto native a success in his own backyard – much of which may be attributed to the constant support from father and mentor Joey Knight.
