We hired the Great Boodini for our daughter's 10th birthday to perform a Harry Potter-themed magic show!
Auntie Nora did a great job, we had a birthday for our 2&4 yo kids, we had like 20+ kids and they loved her, she kept them distracted too :) I'd definitely recommend her!
We were celebrating my son’s first birthday party which was Sesame Street themed. We asked for the Elmo costumed character and he was perfect! They arrived on time and Elmo was very lively and great with the kids! Our son absolutely loved him!!! Overall a really great experience and we will definitely be using Funtime Services in the future!
Andrew put on a great show for some really excited kids. We were originally just going to do balloon animals but we were so happy we decided to go with the both Magic show and balloon animals. He kept their attention with jokes, magic and fun. He even had the parents laughing at the jokes. The magic was perfect for our group of 3-7 yr olds. Three days later and my son is still talking about the magic tricks and special birthday surprise Andrew did for him. Truly a great show for everyone.
Great night and performance for our 50th Birthday party. loved MJ.
I had the pleasure of working with Shannon for my 30th birthday party. She graciously offered to be my private dj at the bar AliveOne in Chicago. She was amazing! Not only did she have her own fun style, but she played every song I specifically requested and got everyone on the dance floor! When my party was done, the house dj came to spin and cleared out the room. He could not compare! Everyone wanted Shannon to keep spinning, she was rocking it! I'm so glad I found her and would recommend her for any event!
Jeffrey has performed for many guests at my house during get togethers. He is not only a very good magician, but he is funny and kind as well. I would highly recommend Jeffrey for birthday parties for big and small, holiday get togethers, or anything where you want to laugh and be amazed!
Great with kids, responsible, great price. I hire them every year for my daughther's birthday!!
It was great to work with Brent in creating a great birthday celebration for my daughter's 10th birthday. Brent is a professional that is very organized; did appropriate level of follow up in preparation for the event. The event was very successful. All my guest (young and not so young) enjoyed the show very much.
THANK YOU! Your show for our Blue and Gold Banquet was the highlight of the day for both the kids and parents alike. I was quizzed by at least a dozen people after your show; asking if I supplied you with inside information about the people in the room. When I told them no, they didnt believe me. You are an unbelievable showman who is acutely in tune with your audience. I kept seeing the kids turn to one another or their parents and mouth the words silently: "how the heck did he do that?" We have had several acts perform over the years, nobody has captured the audience quite the way you did. Your performance yesterday will be the 'high-water mark' for many years to come. I feel sorry for your competition. I understand now why you do so much repeat business. On our way home yesterday, my son said to me: "Dad, I want Paul Lee for my birthday party!" That is all the proof I need to know that having you at our party was the right decision! Thanks again for a great show.
I booked a photo booth through 312 Weddings & Events for my daughter's 15th birthday. Everything was above expectations! Wonderful experience. Highly recommend them.
The experience we had with A couple of Clowns was AMAZING! Suzie showed up and immediately the kids flocked to her. Her face painting was MAGNIFICENT! We had at lease 10 kids from ages 2-11, she grabbed their attention, they participated, she did magic tricks, etc. It was sooo much fun, even the adults enjoyed it. I don't know who enjoyed it more, the adults or the children. I recommend A COUPLE OF CLOWNS any day! P.S. I was a bit concerned because I have a grand daughter who is very picky & shy, not a people person, not very easy to please or have her participate, even to get her to laugh. she had a BLAST! Suzie certainly have a way with kids & entertaining them and getting them out of their shell. THANKS Suzie/A couple of clowns for making our children's birthday party FUN! FUN! FUN!
Kathy's designs were great and my 3 yr. old daughter and her friends loved them. She came early to the event, set up and eveyone had a great time getting their faces painted, including the adults:) Would defintiely use Kathy again and actually my friend liked her work so much that she hired her the following week for her daughter's birthday party. Thanks, again Kathy
We had Sweet Patootie for my granddaughters 5th birthday party on November 16th, 2013. I found Sweet Patootie just that "SWEET"! The 20 kids loved her and had so much fun! She was here for a hour and a half. Made balloons and remade them when several little ones kept popping them. We danced, danced, danced! She was so much fun, I even got up and danced with her and the kids. My granddaughter really loved having her here. Thank you for making her Birthday special! We were happy you had time to stay for cake!
The "Classy Clown" did my granddaughters Birthday Party and all we cab say is WOW! The kids were in awe and the balloon and face painting was amazing. The kids will be talking about this one for a very long time. I think "The Classy Clown" was the best tutor I could have in passing the grandpa test.
We hired Keith for our 5 year old daughters birthday party. The kids had a fantastic time and were engaged in his performance from start to finish. Keith is a very funny and charismatic magician!
Steve was an awesome DJ to have. I am very indecisive but yet picky. I pretty much let Steve lead everything about the music with me only picking out the main songs for the wedding. I was very happy with the music at my wedding. I had a lot of compliments on how the music was great for dancing. It's always hard to get people on the dance floor in the beginning, but he got them out there, and once they were out there, he kept them out there.
The Rockford Symphony Orchestra hired Brassworks to perform at its annual fundraising gala. Mark Olen is a remarkable person, an excellent musician, and a consummate professional. He was very prompt in responding to any inquiries we had, and flexible in programming. My organizing committee members have heaped praise upon me for my good taste in selecting Brassworks. Dozens of attendees commented on how much they enjoyed the music at our event. The musicians were spirited and engaging. I would not hesitate to hire Mr. Olen again. Anything he says he can do, he will do well. Overall, an A+.
I just came across this profile page and wanted to add a review.... You want to have a perfect event, you need to use Always Perfect Special Events. Tonya is the most wonderful, organized and efficient planner you could ever use. Not so long ago Always Perfect did my daughter's bridal shower, wedding and also my parents 50th anniversary party. Tonya took care of all the research, planning, booking and when it came to the event Tonya, Steve and her staff did everything and let us enjoy the event. I cannot say enough how excellent Tonya (and Steve) are as event planner and also are just wonderful, caring people.
Scott was outstanding he arrived early so he could get set up , it was for a birthday party at our house we had around 25 people and everyone said he was great . He kept everyone entertained .I definitely recommend him for your party.
Valery was Awesome!!! She does great work! She is a must BOOK!!
We have used Margi numerous times for our corporate events. She is an amazing painter and has an ability to connect with those around her. She gets through her lines rapidly and Ive never had anyone be anything but enchanted with her art. She is always our first choice when it comes to Face Painting.
We were guests at a kid's birthday party with a face painter/balloon twister from that company. He was great with the kids, explained what he's about to do, made sure kids chose their favorite tattoo or balloon shape, offered many choices. The host invited him to go eat, but he said that he'd eat when he's done. When he didn't have a line, he even went around the tables to offer tattoos to kids, for which he brought his materials with him. I was very impressed by that! Also, he was a really good face painter! I got his card and am planning on hiring him or a princess from the company for my daughter's birthday party.
I watched her do several parties, as well as helping take pictures. She is very into her character, the kids always seem to be attentive to her stories and games and I was surprised how they also love the activities with the props she brings. They just shine with excitement and have the time of their life and would probably let her stay all day long if allowed! Definately adds fun memories to a kids birthday celebration!.. Making them the star of the day.
