Standing Ovation DJ's provided an excellent musical experience for my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary. The DJ followed our playlist to perfection. I would recommend this DJ service to anyone trying to make their night special!
Boodini performed during the cocktail and dinner hour of our wedding celebration. The guests really enjoyed the up close magic and balloon work. When our agreed upon two hours was over I asked if he would be willing to stay another hour. He was available and agreed. Thanks Boodini for an awesome evening!!
Grampy was very professional throughout our communication via email and by phone. Arrived to our party on time. Provided a great show, keeping both the kids and adults entertained. He had many tricks and there were many laughs, ooohs, and aaahs from the crowd. I highly recommend Grampy for your balloon twisting and magic show needs. If you're thinking about it, take it from me and book him right away. Grampy will be the highlight of your party and guests will be raving about him for days just as mine have! A+ show from Grampy!
Russ was absolutely spot on from start to finish! He was the life of our wedding reception and we really appreciate the amazing time he put on for us! I highly recommend hiring him for your wedding! He also offers Photobooth rentals which are sure to be a hit at your wedding! Trust me!
I would highly recommend Emil. Emil is my wedding photographer, where we took pictures at multiple locations in Chicago. I am very happy with the work he had done - quite a few people commented that the pictures look amazing. He is excellent to work with -- negotiations with him were very fair, he delivered our pictures prior to the agreed upon date and he is very cheerful throughout the day
The show was excellent!! Brian was so nice and everyone loved his show. We had a birthday party for a 5 year old but the crowd was from toddlers to 60+ and he had everyone engaged and entertained! I would definitely recommend hiring Brian:) Thank you for an unforgettable party!
Long overdue review. Sorry Normajean !! I am the events coordinator for Downtown Portage Inc. We hired Normajean to help entertain guests for our Canal Days Festival. We experienced horrible weather which kept most people indoors. Normajean didn't let the it rain on our festival parade. She even went as far as standing in the rain and waiving in people to come in a participate under the big tent. I would highly recommend her for any event and look forward to working with her again in the future.
Was very cooperative and did a wonderful job keeping or wedding guests dancing and enjoying themselves!
XOXO Photobox was the perfect addition to our September 17th wedding! We booked XOXO pretty last minute in terms of wedding standards (3 weeks before our event) and we were very happy with the decision and the results. Maria and Brooke were very easy to work with, quick to respond, organized, prepared, and professional. They showed up early to our event to set up and were friendly and responsive to our guests. They have a ton of photo booth props to pick from including wedding themed props. You can even choose black and white, color, or retro for your prints while you are in the photo booth. Literally the next day we received an email on how to access our online gallery. We and our guests loved the photo booth. :) We highly recommend XOXO! -Jessie and Dave

We were truly happy with the services that Keicy Photobooth Rental provided on our wedding day. We hired them for our wedding and all wedding guests could not stop raving about how great they were. They were so helpful and made our wedding memorable. They also included a photo album where our guests could leave us notes and a USB that had all the pictures from that night. We could not thank them enough and would recommend them to anyone looking to photobooth services. We loved their custom design for our wedding also! They were both professional and affordable. Karen was always responsive when we messaged her with questions. We can't to hire you again for another event. Thank you so much!!!
I hired pocket circus for my daughters birthday. It was a great magic show, kids loved It. Face painting was beautiful and balloon twisting was awesome. Would defenetly hire them again. Thank you guys for making our party so much fun.
We hired Bryan for my son's first birthday! We had guests from 7-60 years old and they all loved him! He walked around doing close up magic and finished it off with an awesome show which included many volunteers! He has a great personality and is very funny! I would definitely recommend him for ANY event! Thank you, Bryan, for really entertaining my guests and making my son's 1st birthday party a hit!
Mark was professional, courteous and easy to deal with. Our first phone conversation with him assured us that we were dealing with a professional. He explained his services and helped us choose the best package. As promised, Mark arrived early, set up his things without any hassles and was flexible to start a few mins late while the party guests were still arriving. The show was a huge hit with all attendees - kids and adults alike! Mark engaged the audience well with not only magic but also funny conversations. All in all, it was a great birthday party.. thanks to Mark!
I recently booked my events and celebrations Photo Booth for my wedding and it was great! First off, it's an actual booth rather than just a curtain or tent set up. Plus their props are amazing - astronaut and Viking helmets, mustaches, animal headbands, you name it! My wedding guests (especially the kids) LOVED the booth and Peter & Diana are so great to work with. They design a custom logo for the bottom of your reels and if you get the photo guestbook it's such a great and hilarious keepsake. I've been a guest at 20+ weddings and this is the best photo booth I've seen. If you need a photo booth in the Chicagoland area, choose my events and celebrations, you won't be disappointed.
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.
Had a great experience with Mr. Photobot at our wedding!! We booked last minute and they were very responsive getting us our customized photo strips and Snapchat filter. The attendant was friendly and the scrapbook they put together for us was fantastic! The photo booth was a total hit- we had a lot of kids who loved it, adults did too! Would definitely recommend them!
Gene was a true professional! The props were amazing, payment easy, rate affordable, and my family LOVED the photobooth. We are so excited to have had GN Events at our wedding and end up with a file of photos detailing our friends and families having a blast. My brother missed the photobooth time slot, and Gene allowed him a last second photo! This is absolutely something will be talking about for many years to come. :)
Really love this place and highly recommend Soo Studio !! I visited Chicago from MN because I had to add a photo on my resume. Pretty sure he is a great photographer not only for wedding, but also portrait photo. I had to wear shirt and jacket for my photo ID, but unfortunately I didn't have one. However, thankfully he lent me his shirts and jackets so I could take great photos. He is also very professional doing post-editing. Very professional, nice and friendly. I really thanks for great photos. want to give this place 10 stars !!
Karl sang at and DJ'd our wedding and we are so glad we picked him! His unique style and personality made him a hit amongst our guests and having him definitely helped make our night more fun! We were so happy he was there with us on our day! Thanks again Karl!
I enthusiastically support the recommendation of Nicole Auriemma for employment as an entertainer (guitarist and vocalist) in the Chicago area. I have known Nicole Auriemma for the past year and have employed her numerous times to provide musical entertainment during our summer villa events. Nicole always showed up on time and entertained our guests on a very professional level. Nicole is a pleasure to work with and always brings a smile and positive attitude whenever she plays guitar. It is very apparent that she enjoys performing for audiences in any type of environment." Sincere and best regards, Steven T. Samson
