  • Tomorrow's Memories Photo Booth

    (40 reviews)

    Enclosed Elite Photo Booth When we went out to design our "Enclosed Elite Photo Booth," we had three things in mind -- large size, quality and class! Our large elite "Enclosed Photo Booth" can hold from 4-8 people with ease. Our booth stands at 6-ft tall, 4-ft wide and 8-ft long. It has a top-of-the-line 20" touch screen monitor inside with a Canon DSLR camera. Inside is a high-end dye sub printer, all of which is run with a Mac Book Pro. Guests can email themselves a 4" x 6" copy of the pictures they have just taken before printing them out (pending Verizon service). Our external screen can display a custom slideshow of pictures provided by the host for their guest to watch while waiting for their turn in the booth. Each photo is taken 10 seconds apart giving you plenty of time to change props between photos. We offer the following: * Unlimited photos * Two 2" x 6" photo strips per picture (photo booth) * Email option * Large selection of props * Green-screen option * Custom design of photo strips * DVD of all photos taken at the event * Booth attendant * Custom slideshow on the external screen * No setup/take-down or travel time fees The Red Carpet Experience The newest addition to our Tomorrow's Memories family is our "Red Carpet Experience." Do you want to create that grand entrance for you and your guests? What better way than striking a pose on a red carpet to take your photo. We offer the following: * 8" x 10" step and repeat banner (Custom designed specific to your event with five different layout choices.) * 4 ft x 8 ft red carpet * Rope stanchions * Professional photo lighting * Stand-alone photo booth * Unlimited photos * Email option * Large selection of props * Custom design/labeling of 4" x 6" photo * DVD of all photos taken at the event * Booth attendant * No setup/takedown or travel time fees Green Screen Experience Tomorrow's Memories is proud to introduce our "Green Screen Experience." Imagine you and your guests taking pictures in New York, then Las Vegas, then Paris and ending in Disneyland. Our "Green Screen Experience" allows you to choose any destination or theme for your photos (up to 4). We offer the following: * 8" x 10" Green Screen (Four custom designed specific to your event.) * 4 ft x 12 ft red carpet * Black carpet runners * Rope stanchions * Professional photo lighting * Stand-alone photo booth * Unlimited photos * Email option * Large selection of props * Custom design/labeling of 4" x 6" photo * DVD of all photos taken at the event * Booth attendant * No setup/takedown or travel time fees

  • Balloon Max

    (22 reviews)

    Amazing balloon entertainment for all ages! I have been working as a balloon entertainer in the Bay Area for the last 5 years. After working at birthday parties, weddings, store openings, corporate functions, school fundraisers and many other venues, I have learned that balloons are a welcome presence in any occasion and can only make a good event better. When I show up to your event, I start making balloons right away and do not stop until my time is up. I make sure that everyone who wants a balloon gets one, and that everyone is satisfied with what they have received. I am committed to your enjoyment. Hire me, and I will dazzle you and your party guests with my unique balloon creations!

  • Groovy Judy

    (10 reviews)

    As an entertainer, what makes me stand out is I'm a female guitarist who really knows how to play the guitar, sing and write upbeat songs. My shows and my vibe are very positive. I'm also a true entertainer. I dress in fun costumes and tailor my performance to my client's needs. I'm also featured in Guitar Player Magazine as one of the top female guitarists in the area. As a guitar teacher, ( I also teach ukulele and bass) I'm extremely patient and easy going. I work with a lot of kids and beginners as well as adults and seniors. I do my best to make learning fun and easy. :-) I love to perform, entertain and bring joy to others. :-) BTW, I'm willing to travel farther than 150 miles if the price is right and the event is groovy! :-) As a guitar teacher, I love showing others how to play and implement good habits from the start. Proper technique such as how to hold the pick, tune the guitar, what the parts of the guitar are and what they do plus rhythm, chords and strumming. I can also teach how to read music and tablature.

  • Shelley's Faces Fantastic!

    (4 reviews)

    I get told all the time what a wonderful face painter I am There's alot of good face painters out there but I think I stand out because of the joy it brings ME. I do this because it's fun. Its not for the money, it's not to promote the other side of my business. I do it because it makes me smile and I get to interact with all these people who are somewhere specifically to have fun. I love to see people's expressions when they see themselves transformed. Kids love to get face painted and readily fall into having a good time with it, but when adults give in to their inner child, they absolutely beam with fun. Women suddenly transfom into the Mardi Gras queen, the little girl they used to be and the Vegas Show Girl all at once. There's no age limit on face painting:)

Thumbtack Spotlight

Marshall Magoon Magic

(63 reviews)

Marshall Magoon's magical world includes magic shows for children's parties, dynamic corporate presentations and custom creations like no other; however, he let us in on a secret: magic is not all fun. It entails hard work as well. He has to form a network of contacts and keep honing his craft to make his tricks updated, innovative and exciting.

I appeared on the NBC Soap Days of Our Lives, and besides playing a magician, I was the onset consultant who helped create the magic for the story line.

Audience impact is the gauge of a successful performance. Eliciting people's laughter and amazement appears top on Marshall's list. Once he has achieved this, then he knows that all is right in his world.

Everyone wants to know the secret of magic, but the real secret doesn't involve tricks or optical illusions. It's the way that a miraculous illusion can make a personal connection to an audience to amaze or intrigue people. Marshall Magoon has been able to make that personal connection over the course of a varied and successful career.

    Nito Gomez Caricatures!

    (1 reviews)

    Five Stars! Nito was so excellent!! He was engaging, professional, fun, creative and flexible. We were having a company event and I was concerned that nobody would want to have their caricatures done, but Nito turned out to be the Main Event! He is extremely talented and everyone was very pleased. From staff to executives, Nito was able to "draw out" the best part of everyone's personality! I HIGHLY recommend him and we won't hesitate to use him again!!!
