DJ Bob did an excellent job on my husband's birthday at Hotel Nikko in SF. He and his partner Lee provided excellent entertainment, karaoke and lots of great music suited for kids and adults.

I booked Dave for our high school dance two weeks ago, and he was amazing. All of my classmates loved him. Dave is really good at what he does and makes the process so easy and friendly. I am the class president at my school and we will continue to use Keep It Movin Entertainment for all our events moving foward. What a great all around experience and service!

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.

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.

Kimby was incredibly professional and probably one of the best entertainers we've had at our children's birthday parties. She captivates her young audience and the kids are so into it. She's also a very talented face painter and just a wonderful down to earth person as well. We'd definitely recommend her to friends.

Kelly did so well at our wedding reception. He played classical, 90s and some slow jazz. Our guests really enjoyed their cocktail hour serenaded by live music. Thanks again Kelly!!

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.

Andy came in, presented himself nicely and was easy to get to know. He quickly assessed his needs and where he would hold his show in our home. Within minutes he was loading in, shared his set list and how we would be entertained for our daughters birthday party with his magic and illusions. After prompt set up he was ready to go. Our age group was broad and Andy had no problem catching and keeping the crowd amused and amazed for the hour. I would definitely recommend Andy Amyx for any magic entertainment.

The. Best. We hired Sharon for a corporate party with 300 people, and Sharon was the hit of the night. We had three (awesome) caricaturists and a ton of activities, and still guests would queue up in long lines to see Sharon and marvel at the accuracy of her caricatures! Sharon creates her caricaturists on a computer as you watch live, which results in an enticing spectacle and really beautiful sketches. Plus, they're all saved, which means you can access them later (and share them with your friends, and make them your profile photo, etc etc)! 10/10. I plan to hire her for every party from now on.

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!

Jermaine was awesome through the whole planning process and the party! He was the ONLY dj that called me and answered all my question. I could tell he would be great to work with! Anytime I had a question, he was prompt at responding me. When it was party day he arrived early and was ready to go. He had the dance floor packed all night!! The kids absolutely loved him!!! I highly recommend having Jermaine with RDM Entertainment DJ any event!!!

I hired Loni to have Spiderman and MJ at my grandson's birthday party. It was an excellent experience from scheduling the date to showing up to watching the kids and my grandson have a wonderful time. Even the adults enjoyed it!! We had two children with Autism and Spiderman and MJ were right there playing with all the children. Not one child went unattended. We had silly string fight, we had pictures, we had story time. I am very happy that I found My Once Upon A Time!!

My name is Josh, I organized a large safety event for the company I work for. Alan took the time to get to know our audience ahead of time and created a unique presentation based on his findings. We have a typically very quiet audience who were energetic and engaged for 2 strait hours. I cannot say enough about Alan and how well he performed for us. He was punctual and even did magic for us!! highly recommended! -satisfied customer

I was looking for someone to do face painting and balloon twisting services for my daughter's 1st Birthday Party. I found Hooray Balloons Kids Entertainment and a couple other businesses that offered similar services on Yelp. Elaine was the first to quickly respond! She answered all my questions and was able to accommodate my requests. She was also great about checking in prior to the event. Elaine was very professional and you could tell that she loves what she does!! A lot of my guests were very impressed and the kids liked her too! Her face painting artwork was on point and she had cute options for balloon twisting. I would definitely recommend her and will use her services again!!

We hired One Source Audio to provide the entertainment for our wedding and could not have been happier. We had a unique situation with our wedding on a boat, so we needed DJs with a completely self-sustained system. They had all that and more. They showed up early and set up everything in the reception area with just an electric outlet available. When we found out at the last minute there weren't speakers or a microphone for the ceremony (on a different deck), we put them on the spot and they were able to provide both for our live musician and the officiant. They set up everything on both decks quickly and professionally and never got in the way of boarding guests. We also had a really strict timeline to stick to, and they helped us transition through all the different phases with the music and announcements. Once dancing finally started, they had the entire boat rocking until we docked, then they cleaned up everything as professionally as they arrived. Cannot recommend One Source Audio highly enough, this crew of three really knew what they were doing.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
