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!

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.

Beth was amazing! She arrived early to set up and started right on time. She is not just a face painter drawing little doodles on kids' faces, but a true artist. Everyone at our company event was truely impressed by her abilities. She was even able to freehand several requests that were made. We will definitely be inviting her back to any event we hold.

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.

We used A+ DJ for a Winter Dance (Daddy/Daughter Dance) for the local elementary school. What a wonderful surprise!! Dan was fantastic! He had age appropriate and censored music for the kids and took requests from the girls and Dad's. He got the girls dancing and did not pressure the guys - which many were grateful for not being called out. Definitely looking forward to next year and asking Dan to be part of our Dance!

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
