Ray's got some great party moves! Very versatile selection of music, there wasn't anything we asked for that he didn't have. Would definitely hire him again.

Jeff was easy to work with to set-up our meeting and invested time and energy into getting to know our group through virtual meetings before his keynote. We enjoyed his energy and his presentation was well received by our team.

James Ervin Berry is outstanding he's one of my favorite Comedians. When I first met James his show made me laugh so hard I went back the next day to see him. My stomach hurt for days after I watched his show. Never will it be a disappointment. James turned into a awesome friend. In fact over a yr ago in Sept instead of a dance for our wedding we asked James to come and do a show be our Entertainment for the night. He was a hit. Everyone loved him.

We hired Shannon for the Racine Love Show art/fashion showcase event and she was amazing! Her positive energy and eclectic mix of multigenerational grooves really helped to create the upbeat, inclusive atmosphere we were hoping for. I received so many complements on the DJ after the show that we hope to have her back again for next years event. Attendees said that they really enjoyed the wide range of danceable music she played and how she made it flow so well together. Thank you so much DJ ShannyPRO!!

Brent arrived 15 minutes before show time in our home. He was our entertainment for my sons 8th birthday. The kids enjoyed his humor and were amazed by his tricks, and some adults were also in the audience really enjoying his sense of humor. We wanted a magician, and we got that and a great entertainer as well. Brent was very professional and had very good etiquette. His communication was good, and despite a change in plans due to weather, Brent was able to accommodate those changes. We were very happy with our choice with Brent Allen as the entertainer and our son has requested to have him back again some time. I highly recommend him and the added ballon sculptures at the end if the party. The kids really loved that.

DJ Dollar Bill did an excellent job. I had a 70's party he played music from the 70's and also from the 80,s 90"s and present day. He played a variety of line dancing music and got the crowd out on the dance floor. He also played steppers music. Everyone had a great time. DJ Dollar Bill was very professional and took all music request. I would definitely hire him for my next party.

    Elizabeth is an intelligent, approachable, talented, but most importantly, very funny person. She has coached myself and another executive in public speaking which tremendously increased my confidence speaking to groups and on camera. She meets you where you are in terms of needs. As a comedian/improv/actress/singer/dancer/writer she has exposure to most arts so I also just found our discussions thoughtful and enjoyable. I highly recommend Elizabeth if you need personal speech coaching, an entertainer for a party, or an MC for your next event. Outside of playing instruments, I'm not really sure what she can't do.
