Bill recently provided the DJ services at my wedding. There was about 90 guests at our wedding, all of our families and close friends. From the beginning, Bill was available to answer any questions I had. After our very first phone call he made me feel at ease and confident that everything would go smooth. Once the big day was finally here, Bill showed up early, had music playing for early arriving guests, and was energetic and pleasant. What makes Bill really unique is his live singing option. My favorite part of the evening was when Bill was singing "Pretty Woman" out on the dance floor, interacting with my family and getting everyone dancing. I had one family member message me the next day saying our wedding was the first time they have danced since their stroke in 2012. My wedding night was perfect and I am so thankful that we chose Bill to provide the music/entertainment for our wedding. I would highly recommend Bill to anyone looking for an exceptional wedding DJ. As a side note, Bill also provided last minute officiant services for our wedding when I found out the day before that our original officiant would not be able to make it. In the middle of my panic to find someone to preform our ceremony, I reached out to Bill and he told me to sit back, relax, and everything would be taken care of. Bill went above and beyond to make our wedding night fantastic.

Linda Norris is such a delight and very professional. She runs a top notch entertainment company which I feel offers the best performers and talent in the area. For over 2 years I have enjoyed her entertainment at many community events and have also seen her in action as very energetic and engaging children's performer. I would highly recommend her company for any of your entertainment needs.

Miss Amber arrived on time and dressed as an darling Elf for our Christmas party. The kids adored her and were very excited to see the end results of her face creations. Her designs were all beautiful and well executed. The parents at the party were raving about Miss Amber. She was very engaged with the kids. We were lucky to have found her through Thumbtack since our kid entertainment had cancelled two days before the party. We will definitely hire Amber for our future parties. Thank Amber!.

Dana is awesome! She's a fun, loving, talented, professional artist. She can paint anything the kids want. Adults like to get her designs painted on them, too! I would recommend Dana for home parties and/or business events.

We hired Joe for our wedding reception, and we couldn't have asked for a better DJ. We told him what 'type' of music we wanted for our party, and he knocked it out of the park. He not only played every song on our wishlist (without us even having to ask), but he also played songs that we didn't even think of, which ended up being some of our party's favorites! Joe showed up early and had all of his equipment set up fast. The sound quality was great, and he even provided a wireless microphone for our friends and family to pass around. Joe was highly professional, and helped our party run smoothly. From the best man speech, to the 'first dance' and cutting of the cake, he helped facilitate everything. Joe exceeded our expectations, and did all of this for a very reasonable price. We will definitely be calling A-1 Pro Entertainment for our next event.

I had planned a surprise birthday party for my boyfriends 37th birthday. It was the first of his birthdays that we have shared together and I wanted to make it special. Knowing he is a fan of magic and after much research and interviews, I chose Mister Illusion. Mister Illusion and his wonderful assistant (wife) Barb were phenomenal. They exceeded our expectations and made for an unforgettable evening of entertainment. My boyfriend said it was the best birthday he has ever had!! I would recommend Charlie Fass to anyone, for any event - he is amazing!!

Dragonfly Art is my go-to for facepainting and ballon art entertainment! Maria is very professional and her set up was organized and always clean. She was ready when our event started and stayed an hour later when the kids (and adults) didn't want her to leave. We also used her delicious Filipino food catering services for our office party - twice. Her food was amazing! We can't wait for next time.

Mike did a wonderful job. He sounded great and really just set the tone for our event. We didn't quite draw in the number of guests we were hoping for but it turned out to be the perfect people who showed. Our clients really enjoyed the entertainment. It was nice to have live music playing in the background. I would highly recommend him and most definitely hire again. Mike was early to the event and was ready to start on-time. He was professional and very flexible in working with our schedule. His sound was timeless and so enjoyable. The music selection hit home with our audience. He was just what our event needed so I a wouldn't say he needs to improve on anything. Thank you and best wishes...

I highly recommend DJ Joshwayy! From the moment I was looking into hiring him he was always so welcoming and looking for the best interest for me as a client. Once he was hired he showed up to our event early to set up and had everything he needed. During our event he played such a variety of music, especially Hispanic music which is what we wanted. We were extremely impressed with his skills and his commitment to DJing/Hosting our event. The guests LOVED him and we will definitely be using him for every event we have! Thank you Josh!

BluPrynt has developed an awesome experience in their Soulful Saturday event. I'm a music-head, through and through. I love LIVE music. BluPrynt has put together something that allows music lovers like me the opportunity to just go out, soak it up, and enjoy. From the band to the singers to the host to the venue, each time I've attended, it's been on point!! ~Tina W.

    I play a wide range of genre and can create a playlist for any event that I am booked for. I prefer to not prerecord any set. It is due to me having to feel where the crowd wants to take the feel of the event.

      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.
