I have been receiving compliaments for three days for throwing a wonderful party but a lot of the credit goes to Tabasko Entertainment. This event brought people together from all across the African continent and from different generations and with very little guidance, Tabasko was able to put together a quality play list that had everyone dancing the entire time. From age 7 to 75, from Zimbabwe to Senegal everyone was happy with the tunes. He was also extremely easy going and easy to work with--a huge value when planning an event. Highly recommended.

I hired this company to come dressed as Wonder Woman and Batgirl to entertain 40 6 year olds at a community center. They were a huge hit. I cannot say enough good things. The superheroes come with an assistant. They called me ahead of time so they could make a grand entrance. When I met them outside they were the loveliest three women. I could immediately tell they loved what they were doing. They were all smiles and happy. They did a fantastic job at entertaining the kids. They were fun---great with kids---and they did a special induction ceremony for my daughter who was the birthday girl. I was nervous taking a chance on a company I had never used before. I definitely had nothing to worry about. They were fantastic and I will be hiring them again! Thank you so much for the great entertainment!

She showed up a few minutes early to alot time for set-up so it would not cut into the time needed for entertaining the children and I truly appreciated this detail. She came well prepared with various paint colors and numerous face painting options to satisfy a broad range of personalities. Her artitistic skills were definately evident in her work as her face painting looked very detailed and the colors were very bright. The balloon artist also did an excellent job creating life like pets, swords and just about anything the children requested. Both Jennabelle and the balloon artist were truly professional. I highly recommend her and her but I would definately hire her again. We were very please and had our expectations exceeded. Thank for helping us make our family's celebration so unique and fun!

Xen Live is the only company I'll call anymore for live sound solutions. After a few bad experiences with other companies in the area, I had the pleasure of working with Jay on a wedding event. He arrived early (and very well-dressed), set up quickly and efficiently, and then proceeded to do an incredible job hosting the event and getting people on the dance floor. 10 out of 10, 5 stars, highly recommended, etc. Bottom line, if you want to be certain your event will be a success, CALL XEN LIVE.

Captain Allstar performed at our house for my son's 4th birthday party. It was awesome from start to end. First, scheduling was easy - a call to Captain Allstar himself and we were all set. He also mentioned that we should stop by his show at the Vienna Summer Concert on the Green (we did and it was a great time - Captain AS introduced himself and had our son on stage during the show). A few days before the show, Captain AS called to make sure of the time and to assure us he was coming (it can be stressful when your schedule the entertainment for your kid's party's this ahead of time and you haven't spoken in a while - we had no such stresses). As for the show - Captain AS car early to set up, and just hung out on the back deck while the kids all arrived and played. When the show started (mostly 4 year olds and some 7 yr olds with my daughter), he was a huge hit. My son did not stop laughing and pointing out the silly things that Captain AS did in his act). He is more goofy magic/comedy vs straight magic, which is what we expected and wanted. He had groups of kids on "stage", made my son the co-star of the show and made everyone laugh and have a great time. I should note that it was 92-93 degrees and really humid - and the show was in our backyard. He was an absolute professional. I really can't say enough about Captain AS - if you want a great show for young kids with no stress, he is your guy.

Our experience was truly outstanding. Up front, Nick was super to work with and corresponded very well. And our DJ was totally fantastic! He was on-time, polite, easy going, prepared, helpful, welcoming and pleasure to work with. The equipment was very good; great speakers and wonderful lights that made our event very festive. Our kids (and parents) loved him; with his energy and music he got everyone engaged with games and contests and just dancing the night away. Even our "sometimes hard to please teens" thought he was awesome. He clearly brought a wealth of experience to our venue. We really want our DJ to host our event next year, and any other event we could possibly think of. Did we mention his terrific personality! This is the way a services business should operate! Thank you for a very enjoyable night!

The DJ was great, except for the expletives in a lot of the songs. He did a good job of cutting them out live, but for a Kid's party I'd have thought he would have downloaded the clean versions. For future - if doing a Kid's party, have the clean version of songs! Also, we had a photobooth package and due to some last minute issue there was no one available to man the photobooth. We made do and the Kids still enjoyed it, but there was no one in charge of the photo booth. It would've been nice if they sent someone else last minute.

The best of the best!!! We went with DJ Repeatable after speaking to him and several other DJs. His professionalism drew me in. He wasn’t aggressive in trying to sell his services but instead asked several questions ahead of time to make some recommendations. Now to his actual performance!! He helped my husband and I to choose the perfect songs for the various parts of our wedding and made sure he was thoroughly prepared. And even though the ceremony, cocktails, and the reception were held in three different areas of the venue, he made the music flawless. All the guests at my wedding commented how good the DJ was. He had people dancing continuously. Hire DJ Repeatable!! You will not be disappointed!!

Alexandra from DC Face Painting was awesome! She was very punctual and quickly engaged the children when she arrived. We live in Fairfax county, VA and booked her for 2 hours. About 10 mothers came up to me during the party and asked me where I had found her because they were so impressed with her art work and how fast she worked. The children in our group ranged in ages from 1-6 years and we had LOTs of kids at the party (about 50 kids). She quickly worked on each child and the results were fantastic!! The photos on the website do not do justice to the art work when you see it in person....she did an amazing job and great designs on the children. She also made balloon animals, etc. and kept the childrent excited. Her prices are also extremely reasonable!! We will definitely book her again for our next party!! She deserves the 5 stars!!

We hired Smashing Entertainment to provide a photo booth for our daughter's high school graduation party. The photo booh was the highlight of the party. The photos were good quality and the attendant was on time, professional and friendly. Smashing Entertainment also had one of the lowest prices. We definitely recommend them and will use them again!

We hired Sam C. for face painting and balloon artistry services for our Community Fall Festival. The artists were both professional, kind to all the children, and created fantastic face paint designs. The balloon artist designs were so unique and often looked complicated. Absolutely what we were hoping for! We will definitely hire them again. Only suggestion would be for them to arrive and start set up 15 minutes prior to the event.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful Floyd's DJ services was! They were professional, paid attention to detail, kept the party live and got involved with the crowd. My husband threw me a 40th birthday party and they really added to the specialness of my celebration. Everyone commented on how wonderful the music was and they accommodated guests requests as well as my special requests. To top it all off, I had an all green affair and they had beautiful green up lights for me and the DJs wore green too. I thought that was so nice and thoughtful to dress the part. At the end of the night both DJs engaged in nice conversation with my husband and I as they were breaking down their equipment. I was well pleased with their service and am going to recommend them for another event later in the year. If you need a DJ, go with Floyd's DJ service. I promise you will not be disappointed!

Michael provided amazing entertainment for the 40 (!) girls at my daughter's 13th birthday party. His magic show was fantastic and totally age-appropriate for girls of that age - not an easy age group to impress! He did lots of interactive tricks that they eagerly volunteered to participate in and remained an appreciative and captivated audience for the entire show. He also mingled with the guests and performed numerous "close-up" tricks after the main show. We loved him - a true professional!

J and J Comedy Productions were awesome. Jon Yeager and Wes Martens were very friendly, and made the audience cry with laughter. I hope they had a good time at my 50th birthday party as well. I would definitely recommend them and hire them again. Thanks Deb Graham

I submitted a request on here for a grad party i was planning and had 5 companies reached out to me with their quotes. After looking through each artist's portfolio, I concluded that mimi's portfolio impressed me the most! I messaged her and received an almost instant response and we booked her within the hour. Mimi came to our daughter's kinder garden grad party the following weekend and did a fantastic job painting the kids, sculpting balloons, and drawing their caricatures! She was very patient and always wore a smile despite having worked endlessly for 3 hours and taking only a quick 5 min water break. All the parents were highly impressed with the quality of her work and everyone asked for her business card. We will be using mimi's service's again for our daughter's birthday party this fall.

I got my first guitar last Christmas (at 52!) and thought I'd take a couple of lessons to get started. I saw Bill's ad, liked what he had written (though I have to say I was a little skeptical) but thought, probably no harm in taking a couple lessons and then doing the rest on my own with free YouTube videos. Well, here I am, almost one year and 52 lessons later, playing guitar like I never dreamed possible! And no YouTube in sight. Nothing but Bill Twilde's exceptional guitar teaching and mentoring. You know, you come across true teachers like this once, maybe twice in your life. I wasn't even sure I could form a single chord with my fingers. But because of Bill's gentle, intuitive guidance, I learned I can do more than I ever thought possible! Ok, I guess I'm gushing now but it's kind of hard to stop. He's really that good. Go see him play out somewhere in the meantime, and imagine taking lessons from someone who is also that great a performer. Been an awesome experience for me and can hardly wait to start year two!

Mr. Brady provided the music for my daughter's wedding at Whitetail Ski Resort last summer; he did an outstanding job! He was very attentive to choosing songs for every special step throughout the event! He also played a variety of music as well as various requested songs and interacted with the crowd! I have also hired Mr. Brady to provide music/entertainment for an 8th grade dance at my Middle school!

I would highly recommend the High Energy Magic of Speed and wouldn’t hesitate to book him again. He was very easy to work with (friendly and professional), arrived on time and put on a great strolling magic show. The magic and illusions that he performed were a lot of fun and very entertaining. He even managed to turn the skeptics into believers. All of the guests were very impressed and he helped make our corporate event a real success.

Michael delighted our young adult guests with Taro card readings at a birthday party for our 17-year-old. We wanted a form of entertainment that would be interesting, engaging, simple and fun for this age group, and he accommodated our wishes perfectly, He also accepted this booking on short notice, replying promptly to emails as we discussed details, and I can't imagine how any part of the experience could have been improved upon! We all loved having him!

I initially utilized another company who failed to confirm on the day of my daughters birthday party that a character was coming. I quickly posted a project on Thumbtack two hours before the party and Royal Entertainment responded to my ad within minutes. I spoke with them, booked a character and face painting at a reasonable price, and they showed up to the party and executed with ease. Thank you saving the day. The party would have been a disaster if not for Royal Entertainment’s superior customer service and willingness to meet my needs at the last minute.
