Had a party for my little girl and needed "Elsa" for the surprise. Jen's Elsa performance and the way she navigated all of the little kids that attended was flawless! Somehow Jen was able to make my princess the star of her party amid the frenzy of children relentlessly trying to gain "Elsa's" attention. In short it was awesome to watch. If you need entertainment for child's birthday or just a party, Start with including Jen and Bay Area Birthdays in your plans. The looks on the kids faces are worth it.
Ani was fantastic! She did a great job! We had her do face painting, balloons, and henna for a company BBQ. The kids (and adults) loved her!
Clifford Lamb did a fabulous job at our Corporate Holiday Party. A big THANK YOU for keeping our guests entertained - your music is beautiful. We are already planning to come see you perform in The City :-)
Marshall Magoon Magic it was the best entertainment for the kids. He was able to get their full attention, and make them laugh the whole time. Happy kids....content parents...hi hi hi. Thank you for your hard work.
NoeltheDJ helped make our night so magical. I got compliments from guests about him days even weeks later. He satisfied our quirky playlist of music ranging throughout genres and the decades just as we asked. We're confident we chose the right DJ for the job and will most definitely recommend him to friends and family.
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.
Angela was very friendly and had a great personality. The kids really enjoyed their designs. We would request to work with her again for other company events.
We hired Manya to do face painting, and do glitter tattoos at our twin daughters 3rd birthday party. Also, at the end of the party she dressed up as Olaf from frozen. My daughters had an amazing time, and their friends did as well. I would absolutely recommend Dazzling Streaks Party Entertainment to anyone that is looking for someone to provide any of the services she offers. Most of the children attending our party were 3-5 years old and Manya was very patient with each of them and just did a really great job. We were very impressed and hope to use her at other parties in the future.
We had them for a corporate event and people really liked the designs.
Charles was extremely professional, capable of providing music and karaoke on demand. His sound equipment is great he was helpful and entertaining - he read the party perfectly. People stayed and danced right to the end. We'd certainly hire him again and refer him unreservedly. Gilbert & Stephanie
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.
DJ Twin Spin (Young) was terrific! He knew exactly what we wanted and played the right type of music for our guests at our wedding. My fiancé, well I should now say Husband, is not much of a dancer but Young was even able to get him dancing pretty much all night. My parents and grand parents were so surprised that he was able to play songs they requested from their generation and they absolutely loved him! He was very helpful in assisting us with planning our reception and even though we were running a little behind schedule due to some guests arriving late to the wedding ceremony, he was able to get us caught up and back on track. We interviewed 2 other DJs before we hired Young and although his price was a little more than we had budgeted for, in the end it was so worth it and we would most definitely hire him again. He even stayed an extra 45 minutes longer because my party animal friends didn't want to end the party! Young is definitely a professional and you can really tell he knows what he's doing.
Great entertainment for a small party at home. Responsive, punctual, and a wide variety of tricks.
I hired Isaac to come play at my daughter's birthday party. He was amazing. Prior to the event, he had met with me to inquire about the type of music my daughter prefer that he played. He went out of his way to make sure my daughter was having a great time. He by coming over and checking in with her
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 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!
My company hired a balloon artist through All Star Showgrams for our holiday party this past weekend. I could not be happier with their service! Our artist was on time, came dressed up! and was very professional. Her work was great and the few kids that attended our party loved her as well as our adult guests! Thank you All Star Showgrams for the fantastic entertainment and thank you Thumbtack for connecting us with them!
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 run a bar in downtown Oakland and we regularly use DJ Hellagood. Sometimes when you work at a nightclub environment, the professionalism lax with the entertainment, but this guy is a pro. Always shows up on time with a great attitude and truly enjoys what he does. He has a complex variety of music styles that he is able to play and It’s good at “reading the crowd” and not just on autopilot playing the same old stuff. Definitely recommend him for your event.
TNT DJ are fantastic, I've been to 4 different events where they were the DJ. Pleasure working with them at a Wedding. We were the videographers and they did the DJing. If you want a professional company they are the one to choose. Look forward to possibly working and using them again.
Laura was superior to work with from the beginning to the end. She always got back to me when I e-mailed her or called her, showed up at the event way before the start time, did a super job---she and all of her entertainers are terrific.
