Jen was great. She kept the kids attention for almost 45 min with an adorable puppet show and sing-a-long. She made the birthday girl feel special with a special necklace. But two things. My daughter really wanted to show her a book and I get that wasn't part of the show but she just ignored her. I wish she would have just acknowledged it. And she gave herself a 10 min window to be late and was then ten minutes after that. So it started 20 min after I wanted it to. She did call but I think she was a bit overbooked. All in all it was great and I would do it again in a heartbeat. My daughter loved it and my friends and I thought she was one of the best performers we have seen.

He was very entertaining. He did a wonderful job entertaining children (ages 2-11) for my son's 7 year old birthday party as well as entertaining the adults at the party. He showed up early to the party and was very professional and reasonably priced. We are very satisfied and would recommend him to anyone needing quality entertainment!

About

I am the site manager for Gymboree Play & Music in Pleasanton and San Ramon and we hired Erica to face paint at our Homecoming party! The kids loved how versatile Erica was. Usually face painters give you a few designs to choose from, but whatever the kids wanted, Erica was able to deliver. From Queen Elsa's crown to Gymbo the clown, she can do it all! I can't wait to have her at our next special event!

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!!!

I just got married over a week ago and my experience with Snap a Lifetime was wonderful. Rizza was so prompt to reply to my questions and requests. The price was competitive with other companies out there. She made options easy and was very accommodating. We and the guests had a fun time with the props and the quality of the photos was superb. I was impressed that we received a USB disk at the end of the evening containing all the photos taken and we were also emailed a link to access photos within days of the event. I highly recommend Snap a Lifetime and would use them for future photo booth rentals.

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!

Jeanine did such a beautiful job at our elementary school fair-it was a 2 hour event with about 175 students along with their families. She was fast, neat, and professional and all of the students enjoyed her work and she kept our line moving. She is fantastic!!! We will definitely consider her for our future events where we need a face painter!

About

Shelley is an amazing artist. We had her do all the artwork for our babies room (baby is now almost 6 weeks old). She free-hand painted (!) directly on the walls and everything looks amazing. She painted mommy and baby hippos, a pair of giraffes, mischeivous monkeys, penguins, turtles, a bird and scenery right onto the wall!! She also made wooden cutouts of mom and baby elephants, an adorable zebra and a baby giraffe. We are so grateful that she made our babies room beautiful and unique. I wish I could post pictures to show you. Everyone who sees the room is in awe. Shelley is truly talented and willing and able to create whatever you wish (and she has the amazing ability to improvise as well if you're not exactly sure what you want). I give her a seven star rating!

We were very pleased with the the staff who was prompt in arrival and set-up, very courteous, and professional. In addition, the selection of music provided by the service was great. I would not hesitate to call upon this entertainment service again for future events. Nancy Kline, Director Addus Healthcare, Inc. www.addus.com

This makes her a versatile trainer and a talented Speaker, who loves to engage her audience with real life scenarios and examples making sure her message is loud and clear. I’ve always seen her take pains to respond to questions, even if she needs to research and then email her response, ensuring no attendee is left without a complete answer. She is an Ideal Educator ! She is well versed in the areas of Project Management, Computer System Validation, 21 CFR and the general regulatory arena. Personally, Ms. Bazigos is also an extremely hardworking, dedicated and smart professional.

They were awesome! We had a great time my son laughed his Lil butt off during the magic show! Wish we had more time with them so all of the kids that attended the party would have gotten a face paint and ballon!

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!!!

About

Caricatures are a great way to entertain people, whether it be a birthday party, wedding, company social, etc. There is always a crowd when I draw people and people love it! It tends to be the talk of the party, not to mention a great souvenir. I have been drawing caricatures for about 10 years now and am always finding new ways to improve my work. Give me a call, I would love to draw for you!
