I hired DeNoise to help me configure my home entertainment set-up, which is comprised of an Amazon Firestick, Sonos and a projector running through a Marantz receiver. Albert was on time and is very skilled in patiently working together or on his own to accomplish whatever you need. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking to make home entertainment electronics work right.

I found Ash through Thumbtack when planning my daughter’s 1st birthday party. She was prompt in following up through the app and was really easy to work with. She arrived early and started working immediately at our party. I didn’t know what to expect since this was my first kid’s party, but was thoroughly impressed by Ash’s balloon twisting and face painting skills! I particularly liked the unicorn, dragon and fish on a rod! The kids and adults had a blast! I wish I took more pictures of her work, but had my hands full with the little one. Would definitely hire Ash again for a future event and recommend to friends 🤗

DJ Noel was awesome at my wedding! Everyone had such a great time dancing and I couldnt have asked for better music. He really knew how to read the crowd and played perfect songs at perfect times. He was early for set-up, dressed professionally, and has a perfect DJ voice. :) DJ Noel is a cool guy and I would definitely hire him again if I ever needed his services.

Boswick the clown was amazing. We hired him for my three-year-old's birthday party we try make his birthday special every year we are adopting him and he has made such an amazing change in our lives so as you can understand every moment is precious with him his birthdays have to be amazing probably more for us. So when we started looking for entertainment I knew I wanted a clown when I spoke with David on the phone and he explained to me, because of their age he would not wear make up so not to scare them, that made no impact when he showed up he was every bit a clown and funny to the adults and the children, what went over the children's head the adults got it was interactive for everybody and always stayed in very good taste . There was no inappropriateness from him whatsoever even when joking with the adults. If I choose to hire a clown next year again it will be Boswick David hands-down I will not venture out to look for somebody else he clearly knows his craft he knows how to entertain with good taste he is prompt on time better than that he even stayed a little bit later for people that showed up late due to their own jobs but wanted to say hello to the birthday boy he made them balloons as well and did not leave until we all left the park. My interaction with him from the beginning was always professional he called me he said he would call me return calls his responses back to me were in a timely manner he was an awesome vendor to work with me I can't say enough about David. I had about 15 kids all under the age of 12 and all of them were memorized by him he kept their attention the entire time and he interacted with each child it seemed like. I'm available for a phone call reference just asked David for my phone number my name is Lena and I to use them tag for my own busine I am available for a phone call reference just asked David for my phone number my name is Lena. Thank you David for making my son's birthday so special and so memorable for all the guests but most importantly to us and our little boy you are truly a special person with special gifts.

DJ Twin Spin (Young) was terrific! He knew exactly what we wanted and played the right type of music for our guests at our wedding. My fiancé, well I should now say Husband, is not much of a dancer but Young was even able to get him dancing pretty much all night. My parents and grand parents were so surprised that he was able to play songs they requested from their generation and they absolutely loved him! He was very helpful in assisting us with planning our reception and even though we were running a little behind schedule due to some guests arriving late to the wedding ceremony, he was able to get us caught up and back on track. We interviewed 2 other DJs before we hired Young and although his price was a little more than we had budgeted for, in the end it was so worth it and we would most definitely hire him again. He even stayed an extra 45 minutes longer because my party animal friends didn't want to end the party! Young is definitely a professional and you can really tell he knows what he's doing.

I am a board member of a Phoenix-area charity foundation. We wanted to do something different this year at our annual signature fund-raising event and decided on a magician for entertainment. That turned out to be the best decision!! We contracted Mark Stone to walk the crowd and perform magic tricks. In addition we also asked Mark to act as an "emcee" to make announcements (silent auction, drawings, etc). He was excellent at that as well !! I would highly recommend Mark and would definately use him again at any type of event.

Connecting with Alan for our kid's first birthday event turned out to be one of the best decision. He has lot of tricks up his sleeve and keeps the guest entertained non stop. He was very accommodative with some of the events running over time. He did a walk around magic tricks and center stage entertainment. Everyone totally loved him. He's also good hearted and a very nice person to interact with.

The sound! Oh man. Caroline, those youtubes you linked don't do you guys justice. Caroline/Citizen Jazz played my wedding this past weekend. This is a very professional, and highly skilled group of musicians. I'm pretty far from being a qualified music critic or whatever you call them, but I've played music and performed live enough in my lifetime to be somewhat qualified to judge here. These guys are definitely a big, big step above some of those random live ensembles you see at weddings. I got really lucky finding them on such short notice. My only disappointment is not getting to thank Caroline in person for the amazing job they did!

This is the first time we've had the budget for entertainment, and it was a FANTASTIC idea to have chosen Azure! Jessica was just awesome! The music selection was expansive & she was very accommodating to the tenants' requests. Will definitely hire them again (assuming we have the budget) when we have our next social event!

I am a beginner and didn't know much about playing Guitar and Music theory. She is a great teacher, she always has a way to make me understand the critical aspects. Within no time Judy has brought me to a level where I could read music and play basic chords and make transitions. Playing guitar is a combination of the lessons you get from your guitar teacher and practicing a lot, judy has been really good in making me focus on the right aspects of guitar playing. So far everything has been great. Looking forward to more great lessons.

A great magician for all ages!I first saw David Martinez perform at a corporate off-site. He was so good that I hired him to come perform at my daughter's 9th birthday party a few weeks later. David is truly a talented magician who can captivate an audience of any age. His up-close magic skills are unreal and are sure to leave everyone with their jaws dropped. I would highly recommend David for your next eventhe's a pleasure to work with and a true entertainer.

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.
  • 6-foot folding table: $8.
  • Snow cone machine: $45.
  • Popcorn machine: $55.
  • Cotton candy machine: $55.
  • 2300-watt generator: $75.
