Nick is fantastic! Once he got to the party he got right to work entertaining my guests! EVERYONE absolutely loved him! He was funny and charismatic. He easily juggled twisting balloons and entertaining kids AND adults waiting eagerly in line for a balloon animal, sword, hat... you name it he made it! I highly recommend him as a balloon twisting entertainment person! Many people at my party said they will be using him for their party! I plan to do more business with Nick in the future! Such a great addition to our party! Thanks Nick for making Bella's first birthday special, and entertaining ALL of our guest!

The Great Boodini was awesome, engaged every age group and delighted the crowd. Loved he stayed much longer than the hour he was committed to perform! I will have The Great Boodini at my next family event and recommend him to anyone looking for great party entertainment.

Carl is the nicest, most accommodating DJ who truly cared about my wedding, and it's entertainment success. He was available and proactive from the time we booked him, until my actual wedding day. He was great with the crowd, and with my other vendors. I highly recommend his services!!

Silly Aunt Nora Magician was amazing. I was a little worried that it might not be age appropriate for my 8 year old daughter's birthday party but she was absolutely fantastic! The kids loved the music face painting and magic tricks. She made my birthday girl feel really special and I'm pretty sure the adults loved her more than the kids. I'm so happy I hired her and highly recommend her for anyone looking for great children's entertainment.

We hired DJ AD Entertainment for our daughters college graduation party. All we can say is - EXCELLENT!! Due to weather issues we had to go to "Plan B" for the party location & they rolled with us. The music was fantastic & they expertly read the crowd. We continue to get rave reviews from our guest on the fun they had. We will definitely hire them again for our next event.

Beth was amazing! She arrived early to set up and started right on time. She is not just a face painter drawing little doodles on kids' faces, but a true artist. Everyone at our company event was truely impressed by her abilities. She was even able to freehand several requests that were made. We will definitely be inviting her back to any event we hold.

My wife and I looked carefully for a saxophone teacher for our son, and we hit the jackpot with Jon Novi. Jon teaches our son the basics, but more important, he engages him and inspires him. Jon draws out our son's natural creativity and joy so that he's not just playing notes but truly playing music.

Matt performed at our wedding ceremony and it was the perfect addition. Churches typically allow only approved religious songs during the ceremony itself, however, Matt's guitar playing at the beginning and end of the ceremony was a great way to incorporate our own musical favorites and really personalize the experience for us and our guests. I had numerous guests comment on his guitar playing skills and how they enjoyed the live music and recognizable songs while they waited.

Review for William Powers I am a non-professional singer interested in improving my overall level of performance in both solo and choral situations. I have worked with Mr. Powers on several occasions in preparation for a vocal recital and an opera performance, and I truly cannot recommend him highly enough! Not only is he great fun to work with, he is able to quickly and accurately assess my strengths and weaknesses as a performer, and offer practical advice that I can put into use immediately. He is particularly effective in helping me bring a song to life by examining the emotional content of the music and lyrics, and then presenting it in such a way as to deeply touch the hearts and minds of my listeners. Whatever your current level of skill as a singer, actor, or public speaker, and whether you are an amateur or professional performer, Mr. Powers can give you the inspiration and the practical tools to move on to a much higher level!

Ryan Gorey Media was perfect for my rehearsal dinner! He was there before me already setting up and was very professional. He played a great variety of songs as people were arriving and eating dinner and then switched to dance music after dinner, which was exactly what I wanted. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that needs a DJ and plan to work with him again in the future.

Kazar performed at our New Years Eve event. (about 100 people) He was recommended by a friend. The show was great, I've never seen a live magic show before, it was more than we expected. It was a very elaborate. It was very entertaining and fun. I personally have no idea how that magic is done. I'd like to see more. Thanks Kazar!
