He is an amazing performer!!! He really knows how to attract children attention. Every kid at our daughter's birthday party was amazed and happy to have a chance to participate in the show. We had many entertainers every year for our little one's birthday but Great Boodini so far was the best one! Definitely we going to hire him again! Very professional, punctual and he responds very quickly for any questions. He offers variety of magical tricks/ shows for small and big kids. Definitely I recommend him to anyone who wants to have great and unforgettable party!!!

The Face Painters were on-time, professional, friendly and very talented. Their designs were beautiful for boys and girls - kids and their parents loved them. We recommend them to anyone looking for easy-to-work-with face painters.

From start to finish working with the Pocket Circus team was a wonderful experience. Gabriela was prompt, professional, and friendly with the planning and arrangements. Mr. Firu was flawless as the entertainer at my 4 year old son's birthday party. My son had an earache the day of the party and was a bit cranky at times. Mr. Firu was able to handle the situation with style and grace. By the end of the show my son was laughing and participating! All of the guests ranging in ages from 1 to 77 enjoyed themselves and had an excellent time. I highly recommend Pocket Circus for one's entertainment source!

I would strongly recommend Gregg from Pinnacle Sound and Entertainment for any special events requiring an amazing, charismatic and affordable DJ. Gregg was the DJ for our wedding in August 2014. When we first met with him, he did an awesome job of putting our minds at ease. He was very friendly and professional, and had answers for every scenario that we could think of that could go wrong. He was very honest and affordable, and had no hidden charges or fees that were not disclosed immediately. He was very flexible and willing to make every accommodation for our special day. On the wedding day he was presentable, and arrived very early to set up right away. He stayed the entire time, and even kept an eye on our reception area for us during the day since it was in a public area. During the reception, Gregg did a really good job of playing relevant music and keeping our guests on the dance floor. He was very entertaining and great with coming up with announcements on the spot for us, as we needed them. He also surprised us by finding a way to maintain our absurdly long do-not-play list, while still finding a way to meet our guests’ requests. We had absolutely no problems with Gregg, and will definitely seek him out for any of our events needing a DJ in the future!

Wina was extremely pleasant to work with! she did my daughters 4th bday/ baptism party and everyone loved her! the kids and parents were all very happy with her work. Extremely patient with the kids considering they were mostly indecisive toddlers and a warm good person all around. I would def hire Wina for any other upcoming event.

I hired him for my twin sons 6 year old birthday party at the house two weekends ago. There were around 18 kids and 15 adults and Apollo had everyone completely engaged. He was great with the kids and had all the adults laughing out loud. He was very professional and a true entertainer. Everyone commented on how awesome he was. I am so happy I found him!!

Hands down the best psychic experience I have ever had. Susan is the real deal. She was the entertainment at my company holiday party and not only was she warm, easy to talk to and professional, she was spot on with all of her readings. We were blown away by her abilities. I could write the longest most glowing review of her and it would never be enough to convey the amazing experience we had with her. I plan on hiring Susan for many future events, she is incredibly gifted and a pleasure to work with.

    Fantastic Show! Out of all the entertainers we have at our facility Jovan is the one that they ask about the most. What I liked about his show was number one Michael Jackson is someone everybody can relate to, then there is this energy he has, he's also very limber and blessed with talent. Thanks again!

    We hired Val for my daughters 1st birthday party. She's just wonderful and we love her work so much. In the past I regret hirring other lower-priced face painters who didn't know how to paint well and worst of all they do not know how to interact with the kids. For me, it's very important to keep in mind how a face painter relates to the children. She's friendly, funny, clever, professional to work with, fast and incredibly talented. We love our experience with her and everyone else at the party did too. She's amazing and we love her very much. ?

    Ed was great. He was on time and the kids were just having a ball and laughing out loud. His rates are reasonable and comparable with other entertainers, but the added comedic spiel is what put it over the top!
