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!

Susan was absolutely WONDERFUL! The children (and the adults) loved the very creative facepainting artwork. It made our event awesome. Susan was very professional, yet very personable. Our group was blessed to have her. Thank you, Susan!!!

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.

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.

Kathy sang at my California wedding in August 2014, during the ceremony and the reception. I discussed the songs I was considering with Kathy many times in the months leading up to our wedding and she listened to my ideas, giving guidance and suggestions for impactful songs. We ended up choosing an Adele song for the ceremony and a Beatles song for the reception. One of our guests told me after that he's only cried at two weddings: his and when Kathy sand Adele at ours. If I could give Kathy six stars, I would. Kathy is the epitome of professional. In a process filled with weirdly secretive costs (the minute you say wedding, costs increase exponentially) it was a huge relief to have someone up front, honest and fair with prices and expectations. If you are worried about having a meaningful music experience, hire Kathy. She listened to our desire for an emotional performance at the ceremony and a more 'fun song' at the reception and knocked it out of the park with "I'm So Tired" by the Beatles. I could go on about all the ways Kathy enhanced our wedding experience, but let me leave it at this: if you are even remotely considering live music at your wedding, you would be crazy not to contact Kathy.

I am so pleased with Sid and Hala. We had them play for my mom's 80th birthday party last weekend. Beginning with my first correspondence with them up until they left the party, they were wonderful. I have never used Thumbtack before or even heard of Thumbtack so I didn't know what to expect. I put in the information to Thumbtack a few months ago looking for a live band for my mom's birthday party. I had no idea what a live band would cost and if there was anything available where I was looking to have the party. (The party was a good hour from any major city). So once I entered the information into the Thumbtack website, within maybe an hour or so Sid and Hala contacted me. They introduced themselves, informed me about the type of band they were (acoustic), type of music they played and told me costs in the first correspondence (quite reasonable I thought). We went back and forth several times with questions of mine and their answers and they always answered within an hour. Can you believe they were willing to drive 2 hours to my event! I couldn't believe it. No extra charge for drive time either! So we had a verbal/email commitment with them and the next week they emailed a contract that I signed and sent back to them. We emailed back and forth a couple of times over the following few months up until the event. The emails were mainly regarding song selection. They have a good sized list of songs they play on their website. I had two song requests that they didn't currently play but they were more than willing to learn for me. The day of the party they were right on time-1 pm sharp. They were professional and polite. They gave themselves an hour to set up and started right at 2 pm like we planned. They checked in with me prior to starting to ask about when they should play the songs they learned special for me. They asked if it was okay if they took a break in the middle. (Of course it was okay!) The quality of performance was 5 star and then some. Their voices are beautiful and work really well together. I had listened to several of their songs on you-tube prior and the internet quality of the music was not the greatest for some of the songs. Let me tell you that in person they are fabulous!! So much sound and talent from two people. My family threw in some song requests that they were not expecting and they accommodated beautifully. They could play the music and just looked up the words on their smart phones so they didn't make any mistakes. That was the only time they had to read lyrics. If you had not been looking at them you would have never known they were reading the music. I received compliment after compliment from our guests on how great the music was. I cannot recommend this acoustic band enough. You will not be disappointed. Well worth the money.

Do not have enough words to express how great the Band Sundance was for our wedding. Their ease of communication beforehand put both of us at ease that we would not have to worry about this vendor. The bands choice of songs kept everyone of all age groups on the dance floor. We received numerous compliments of the band. Whether it was when they were playing, or when they catered to other music the crowd liked when they were on break. Their professionalism, talent, and love of getting people out on the dance floor is second to none. I wish we could have had more time with the Band Sundance, and would recommend them to anyone looking to have a live band. Whether it was 70s-90s music or country music, the Band Sundace put on an amazing show. Also the fact they took candid photos while playing was something that went above and beyond what you woould expect of a band. Again, there are not enough words to express how great they were at our wedding.
