Rob was great. He worked with my daughter-in-law to create special music for her father/daughter dance. He played several different genres of music so there was something that appealed to everyone and he even sang a few songs himself! He sings great! It was like getting a DJ and live entertainment in one.

Choosing Party Starter entertainment as our DJ was truly the best choice we made for our reception. He was kind, funny, and killer at his job. He did not miss a beat when we decided on a different location for the dance floor at the last minute, even though it meant that he had to move everything and set up a second time. He was never cheesy, never made himself the spotlight, and was great at getting EVERYONE on the dance floor. Our dance floor was LIT all night long. He knows how to read the crowd and provided quick transitions when a song proved not to be a crowd pleaser. I cannot express how perfect our reception was, many friends have said it was the best they have ever attended and I am so thankful to Party Starter Entertainment and DJ Hypnoteyez for their part in it.

DJ Jammin Jere did an excellent job providing music and entertainment for our New Years party. He arrived on time with his own equipment. He was extremely courteous and took requests throughout the night. His services were very affordable and he kept the party going all night. My guests and I had a fantastic time! Overall, he was a great DJ that I will definitely hire again in the future!

This DJ was excellent and in my opinion made my wedding reception really fun. He was everything I wanted from playing our special dance songs to reading the crowd and fulfilling requests. Everybody danced the night away. The music was just too good to sit down. He made available wireless mics for our toasts and had a live slideshow of pictures on the DJ table. He was professional in every sense of the word. I would definitely recommend My Event DJ for any type of event.

Hot Rod is awesome! I was tasked to find a DJ for the school dance -(private school in Birmingham) and sight unseen except for Hot Rods awesome reviews on thumbtack- I bit the bullet and hired him. He was exceptionally professional, had all the legal insurance/paperwork the schools need , and best of all had all the kids dancing at a dance which historically no kids ever danced!!! Hot Rod exceeded all of our expectations and I will not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who asks

I used the DJ services for an elementary school dance. The music was age appropriate and liked by the 300+ children that were in attendance. The DJ also facilitated the dance contest which made my job a lot easier. A pleasure to work with! Highly recommend. LT

I actually saw this guy at Flatwoods Elementary a few years back. I have seen amateur magicians before, where the dialogue feels like it was printed in the instructions when they bought the trick. This guy was very entertaining! My favorite is his "balloon trick". I don't want to ruin it for anyone who hasn't seen it. Arr!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is a bounce house?

    Bounce houses, inflatable castles, moon bounces, inflatable slides and jumpy castles are all large-scale inflatable houses made for interactive entertainment. Commonly intended for children, bounces houses are made of PVC or other durable materials such as nylon or vinyl that when look like a house or castle when inflated. Rental companies deliver bounce houses to birthday parties, festivals, fairs and other events. The companies have industrial-grade blowers that fill the large structures with air to make them bounceable. A common size for a bounce house might be 15 feet by 15 feet by 13 feet. Bounce houses often have a flat, inflatable bottom pad and inflatable walls so that kids can jump and bounce without being hurt, along with a netting door and windows so that kids can see out and adults can see in. Bounce houses are suitable for both indoor or outdoor events, depending on the venue. For large events, rental companies often have a staff member who stays with the structure to monitor safety and keep it properly inflated. There are also wet/dry bounce houses with slides that you can hook up to a hose on hot summer days. A bounce house can be a fantastic addition to a party with kids, keeping them both entertained and contained.

    Are bounce houses safe?

    Bounce houses can be safe if operators and parents take proper precautions. Before renting from a company, confirm they are a legitimate company and hold any licenses and insurance required by your state. Ask to see reports of bounce house safety inspections provided by third parties, to make sure the equipment is in good operating condition to prevent injuries. If the rental company does not provide a staff member to oversee the bounce house for the duration of the rental, make sure you are properly trained on how to oversee the equipment. The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these guidelines for parents to help keep their kids safe when using a bounce house:  

    • Follow guidelines for safe installation including anchoring. Position away from fences, greenhouses, branches, etc., which would be dangerous should a child fall onto them.
    • Consider limiting use to children 6 years of age and older.
    • Have kids take off footwear, eyeglasses and jewelry before playing.
    • Take sharp objects (pens, keys) that could cause puncture injuries out of their pockets and hands before playing.
    • Don’t let kids of significantly different sizes into the bounce house at the same time. Smaller kids can get hurt by colliding with or falling under an older child.
    • Heed the height and weight regulations of the inflatable.
    • Food, drink, bottles, glasses, etc., should not be taken onto the bounce house.
    • Supervision should be maintained all the time. Supervision means watching constantly, not just being in the area.
    • Do not allow children to push other children off the inflatable. If it is a flatbed, this is especially important to avoid broken arms and legs. If the bounce house is walled, don’t let kids bounce against the walls and crash into one another — this can result in collision injuries.
    • Don’t exceed the maximum number of children at one time in the bounce house.
    • Don’t let kids climb onto the outside walls. Flips and rough play should also not be allowed.

    How much does bounce a house cost to rent?

    Bounce houses are a fun way to keep kids entertained during birthday parties and other events. The national average cost for renting a bounce house ranges between $160 and $200. Cost will be affected by the size, design and functions of the bounce house you rent as well as the length of the rental. A three-hour rental will likely cost less than an eight-hour rental. Many rental companies offer fun additions like popcorn machines or cotton candy makers, and provide packages with discounts on multiple items. Another item that you may want to rent with your inflatable is a generator to keep the bounce house inflated. Here are some examples of average inflatable rental costs, packages, and common add-ons that many companies provide:

    • Bounce house, 10x10x13-foot: $95.
    • Bounce house, 15x15x13.5-foot: $125.
    • Wet/dry slide, 14-foot: $150.
    • Wet/dry slide, 20-foot: $250.
    • Combo bouncer and slide, 24x10x13-foot: $140.
    • Combo bouncer and wet/dry slide, $175.
    • Folding chairs: $1.50 per chair.
