  • 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."

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.

  1. #1 Bay Area Birthdays

    (117 reviews)

    Katie R.

    Birthday party for my son. Jen was good, kept 15 kids 2-4 years old engaged for a full 40 min plus 20 min balloons which is not an easy job. I thought her magic session could have been a bit more engaging, felt a bit too junior, thought there would be more actual magic- rabbit out of a hat vs silly magic and singing. The highlight was the balloons so I would encourage more time spent on that. 4 year old boys loved the balloon swords and could have played with them for hours. She was nice to leave some extras as they got popped.

    Darren F.

    After reading the reviews I hired Mr. Marshall Magoon for my sons 5th Birthday party. I am glad I did . At the beginning he communicated very well and make sure he answered all of my question and we locked the date for Sept 26th. He arrived early to for set up even though he came from across the bay. He is very professional and very nice. His magic show is just amazing . He quickly got the kids attention and all kids love his show. Ages from 2-14 and adults were laughing and smiling. He knows kids too well. The magic show itself is fantastic well design and presented. Kids love the magic and the jokes. He have very good sense of humor kids and adults. I would recommend him to all of my friends and family. Cant wait for my next party planning. If your looking for a good magician that is good with kids and will make everyone goes WOAH , SMILES and LAUGH. Marshall Magoon is the man. THANK YOU

  3. #3 Balloon Max

    (22 reviews)

    Nivanthie M.

    Max did a great job entertaining the kids. He made sure before his time was up, that all the children had at least one balloon made. Some of the younger kids didn't really know what to ask for, so he gave them some examples of things that he can make which helped them choose something. He made balloons for the entire 1 and half hours without taking a break! I would definitely recommend it

    We hired sideshow events for my son's first birthday. To say Daniel and his crew are amazing is an understatement! They interacted so well with all ages. The balloon creations were so cool and unique, the kids LOVED them and so did the adults!! The airbrush tatoo Artiest was so patient and sweet with all the kids! So much cleaner and doesn't smear all over the place like regular face paint. We also had the photo booth which was alot of fun and a great added activity to the party! I would highly recommend side show events!! You won't be disappointed and I will be definitely will be using them again!!!
