Ryan did an extraordinary job. He was funny and charming. His magic tricks were quite impressive. He was able to adapt to our sudden changes of plan with grace. We had many people remark how impressed they were with the music and entertainment. We would very strongly recommend him!

Callie did a GREAT job! She arrived promptly, engaged with the kids, and kept them entertained! We had her arrive for 1 hr @ my daughters wedding reception. She was there the 1st hr of the evening, while guests were arriving, and waiting for the bride & groom to arrive. I had kids, and adults come to me and say how much they enjoyed her and the balloons! Plus adults thought it was a great idea to include this service for the kids!! I would recommend and use her again!!

They were very friendly, arrived early enough to setup and provide us with the full time we were requesting and did an awesome job. Before going over time, Terri checked to see if we needed the services longer. I truly appreciate the consideration. We (Nadine's Love) plan to use Callie The Clown in our future. We have many more events in the works. Thank you for your professionalism, craft and time.

We were absolutely delighted with Willing Hands Designs. Not only did they provide a positive, professional experience for our participants, their work was absolutely outstanding. The kids they painted looked great, and we had nothing but rave reviews about their work. They arrived early and were even flexible enough to start early. We were also thrilled with their competitive pricing and their ability to provide more than one entertainment provider for a very reasonable price.

I hired D.E.X. for my daughter's 13th birthday and he did a great job! I sent him the music that my daughter liked as well as some Karaoke songs she might like to sing at the party. He came prepared with all the right music and plenty of Karaoke choices. The kids loved the light show and the fog machine! They also, stepped in to help me to get the kids organized for games - which was much needed! They were very flexible.

I cannot imagine any other magician doing a better job of entertaining my guests at the cocktail party I recently had at my home. Jon moved from each small cluster of guests performing close-up magic and conversing with them in a most congenial and friendly manner. EVERY ONE of my guests told me how much they enjoyed his entertainment. Aside from that, he was most professional about getting the information he needed from me prior to the engagement and was punctual. Compared to a few other quotes that I got from other magicians for the same type of entertainment, Jon fit the profile best and still fit into my budget. I recommend Jon without hesitation.

Suzanne J.

Jon is an unbelievable magician -- I have absolutely no clue how he does it. He has a very funny and approachable demeanor with the crowd, making his show much more than magic -- he makes it fun! I have recommended him for the entertainment at corporate events with the law firms I have worked at, and I know he had stellar reviews, too. Two thumbs way up!!!

After looking into a few different options for a facepainter, all of which we're outrageous in pricing or their quality of work was a bit sub-par, I turned to thumbtack. Skeptical, none-the-less. After only about an hour after posting that I was interested in a face painter I was returned with a message from Party Blitz. After discussing different options and hearing the price, I was ecstatic. They made it so very easy to communicate and followed up before the party to confirm all of our information aligned! The day of our party, the beautiful young lady who did the facepainting for the day showed up right on time!! I had a few extra children attend that weren't accounted for in the initial head count but this wasn't an issue at all. Every single child got their face painted within the time alloted (I requested two hours for approx 12-15 children. However there were about 20.) She was so very sweet to every child that sat in her chair and made each child feel special. She had the patience of a saint- especially for dealing with so many 5yr olds who can't decide what to put on their face. Lol Im very thankful for this company, their affordable rates, and lovely caring staff. The ONLY thing I regret was that I wasnt able to tip her before she left!! Looking forward to booking more events with this company. Thank you!!

I think these folks did a great job! The kids and parents seemed very happy with both the airbrush tattooing and the face painting. The quality was really good and they were able to provide service to as many people as they gave me an estimate for.

Mr. Mystic's Entertainment Company made my sons first birthday party special. I was hesitant to book any face painting/balloon entertainment for the kids, but figured...WHAT THE HECK. I am so glad that I did. I was able to observe them with the children, they were patient, kind, and very professional. They were a HIT OF THE PARTY! Aside from the value they provided, they were also punctual and timely in their communication. If you are on the fence (like I was), DO IT! You will not regret it.

We absolutely loved the work quality and professionalism that Stacey brought to our event. Our clients all seemed to go away with even bigger smiles than they came in with.

Stephanie is simply amazing! She is such a fun and outgoing and super clever lady bringing a wonderful charm and creativity to her work. The kids are drawn to her and her experience in childcare and nannying shine through. My 3 have been transformed at the hands of Stephanie, who can magically transform kiddos (and adults alike) into whatever they desire! So quick, yet so perfect! Stephanie is very detail driven and has impeccable time keeping and organisational skills. We have used her services on numerous occasions and I would highly recommend her to anyone - be it for a kids party or for your work team building exercise, she will have a plan!

I hired Fantasy Face Painting Plus to do face painting, balloon twisting, and glitter tattoos at my library's summer reading kickoff block party and was beyond impressed! Stephanie and her team were wonderful to work with, and I received nothing but praise from those in my community who attended the block party on how much their kids loved their booth, especially the glitter tattoos! Stephanie was great at helping me figure out exactly what I needed for this first time event with a large crowd expected. The quality of their work and their fun attitudes have earned them a permanent spot at our now annual summer reading kick off!

Loved working with Stephanie. She was very professional and went with the flow. My son fell asleep early and actually not that many kids came. She still was very god at entertaining the kids that were there. She made rattles and wrist balloons for smaller kids. The rattle is actually still inflated and its been almost a month!

DJ Dr. Dance was incredible at our wedding. We would 100% recommend him. He helped us to stay on a timeline and we had no stress at our wedding as we knew he had everything under control. He kept everyone dancing with his energy and music selection. He made sure to include our music choices/genres while also throwing in fun songs that all audiences could enjoy. He was professional and was easy to get in contact with during the planning process. We are so thankful for DJ Dr. Dance and would use him in a heartbeat for any future events!

Tanya provided face paint for my daugther's 7th birthday party for about 12 children. She was punctual, neat and clean, provided a wide variety of choices for the children to chose from, was friendly and professional. She used excellent quality of materials to make sure all children, even with sensitive skins, could enjoy the fun without any risk of rashes or reactions. Her painting skills are excellent.

We have used this company for several "special occasion" or holiday parties for our company. The quality of her work is outstanding and the kids just love the variety of choices. This has been a great way to keep the children involved when we have family oriented company gatherings! Thanks for all of your great work Tanya! We look forward to seeing you again during the upcoming holiday season. Brady

Ms. Damita was excellent, very sweet to do business with! I am very pleased and happy with her service. The cost of her work, all worth it all the way around. Kids were happy and absolutely enjoyed her face painting art, balloon arts and Mr. Mouse at the end of her session. She is very punctual and professional. No doubt I’ll be using her services in the future. I don’t add any pictures because I don’t have them yet (from the photographer) and this is an early rating I am giving, but being a picky person like me, who wants her money to pay for quality?... you can trust this honest rating. 🙂

Damita was absolutely perfect for my National Children's Event. The kids loved her! Her performance had kids lined up the entire time she was there. She was extremely sweet and professional. She arrived on time and even stayed after a little because she had so much fun. We enjoyed her services so much, we will definitely be calling her back for next year! Some adults even had her make something with the balloons because they were so good!

I had Chad come for a private "End of Summer Party" - and I can emphatically say that he and each of my guests had a great time. He was 15 minutes early on arrival. I stated that I just wanted him to walk around to the various groups of people on property and do slight of hand tricks and perform his mentalist predictions. He also read a few palms and gave several of my friends uplifting and positive news. So needless to say he made a great impact with my guests and absolutely everyone had great things to say about him. Chad was very comfortable within group and he will definitely be one that I will call to come again to one of my next functions. Great Job - Chad! Thanks for "Enlightening" all of my guests. See ya again soon! Tom

Stephen and The Brigantine Band were an excellent addition to our event. We hosted a community event in which they provided the live entertainment. They were extremely easy to work with, very professional and tailored their playlist to match the event and audience. We had some hiccups on our end last minute, but Stephen and his crew were accommodating and helped think through solutions. It was a great event! I would definitely recommend The Brigantine Band! We will also be utilizing them for future events!

Stephen, and his band Brigantine, came to my church to play a show for my youth group. They showed up on time, played a good show, and even helped clean up. They were very respectful and professional. We had a smaller group but they still played like they were in front of hundreds. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
