Where to begin?! I hired Jimi for my daughter's 8th birthday party (karaoke and DJ) and after he bid on the event had to change the date. Not a problem - Jimi happinly fit us in, for the original quoted price, and provided 9 8yo girls with an afternoon of singing, dancing and laughing that they are still talkign about! He showed up a few minutes early and was set up, ready to go in a snap. While I had given a rough sense of the music my daughter and her friends like, he did a terrific job adding to the list - all age appropriate and great to dance to! We live in a close neighborhood and all of our neighbors enjoyed the afternoon saying what a great job he did. I could on and on, but the last point I'd like to make is that while the girls all sang the same 5 - 6 songs over and over (can one hear Let it Go, FIreworks or Love Story too many times?!) he made each one feel like it was their time to shine...I will be tucking his card away in a careful spot and will use him again in a blink if we are in need of a DJ! Thank you again, Jimi for making Lily's party such a memorable one! The Martino family

Utilized Ione Entertainment for a 40th birthday party and she was on time, courteous, and professional. We had the unpleasant experience of fighting a snow storm and Ione's travel was unnecessarily long but arrived on time and stayed the duration. On top of providing very good karaoke services she also provided the numerous children with balloon toys.

Mark was excellent. We talked before the party and he had great ideas. He adjusted the volume up and down per our request throughout the party. He had fun game ideas and took special requests. We could not be happier. One of my guests was in the entertainment industry and he was also impressed. Quick piece of advice if booking on this site is to call direct to confirm. Our app didn't confirm.

Jacob Sound Entertainment is great! They're classy, and you never have to worry about the typical clichés associated with djs. Jacob was excellent and a joy to work with. We had very specific song requests and arrangements, and he executed everything perfectly. He even made some suggestions based on what he knew about us and what kind of experience we wanted to create for our guests. Can’t thank you enough!!

Eric's show was phenomenal!! He performed for approximately 55 students ranging in ages 5-12 and he kept the ENTIRE audience(teachers included) engaged throughout his 45 minute magic show. The kids loved the fact that they played an important role in each and every magic trick!! He even provided "magic wand" certificates to every child stating that they officially performed magic in his show. It was great to see the kids faces light up and hear the OOOOH"s and AHHHH'S during and after each trick! Upon completion of the show, Eric created balloon animals, swords, and hats just to name a few...you name it Eric could make it!! All in all Eric Benton's Magic far exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much, you were fabulous in every aspect from punctuality and professionalism to funny, zany, and wonderful entertainment!!

Jon was a pleasure to work with, from pre-wedding meetings and planning through our wedding ceremony and reception. He was very professional, and in addition to doing our dinner and reception music, he also helped out with a sound system and support for our ceremony location. He kept all of our guests on the dance floor, and left everyone demanding more music at the end! We would definitely recommend JAG Music & Entertainment for anyone looking for music for their wedding!

They were awesome! They came out for my son's first birthday party where we had kids of all ages and they entertained even the adults! They did the balloons and magic show while the other woman did the face painting! I loved that they had both the face painting and the magic show going at once to keep the audience engaged and involved at all times. They even had pictures of the face painting on display so people could choose from their previous art work! They did an awesome job we will definitely have them back and highly recommend them to anyone looking for this type of entertainment for their parties!

We hired TPF Entertainment for our wedding reception in May and could not have been more pleased! They are great to work with and hey even gave us a complimentary photo album guestbook which is great to be able to look through for years to come! They were the lowest price around and that did not effect quality one bit. Their photo props were great and I loved all the effects you can add to photos. I love that the photo "remote" is an iPad that you control. It's just very fun, easy to do and memorable! Thanks again for everything!

I have known Christie since I was nine years old. I used to take lessons as a young child from her in both the piano and vocals. She is an excellent teacher and a true professional. She is very talented and is well versed in all areas of music; vocals, writing music, and even directing and conducting choir groups. I own some of her first CD's and her work is truly inspiring! She set the foundation for my musical experience early on and I continue to be passionate about music to this day. She truly helped me evolve as a singer. I would recommend her as a music teacher to anyone of any age, no matter what style of music or what stage of knowledge you have acquired, I believe she can help anyone attain the music level they are striving for. She is truly a pleasure to work with and her encouragement, guidance, and experience, as an artist herself, is what helps lead to musical achievement and success for any individual!

Chris is not your typical magic show. Its so much better. His magic leaves you really scratching your head and talking about it after its over. He stumped us all! He was great with both the kids and adults at the party with an awesome friendly demeanor and ability get everyone excited to watch. Chris truly has some talents and we are very very pleased that we chose him for our party. Our party had about 50 people at it about 50% adult and 50% kids. Instead of doing a magic show where everyone watched we took a different approach and instead he went up to small groups of people and drew them in to watch some really great closeup magic. We did this intentionally and asked Chris if he could preform this way. He was exceptional at it. As he walked around a few kids seemed to be attached to him the whole time drawn in by his tricks and friendly approach. He was so good with the kids being sure to keep them entertained and constantly questioning what they saw (or did not see). After the party was over we received a few texts and emails from parents that said they could not stop talking about the illusions they just witnessed. A great performer and a great guy! If you have an event from a party with kids to just adults or even a corporate event. Chris is the perfect addition. Thanks Chris. We hope to have you back at our next big bash! thanks!

Jeri is an amazing balloon twister! She was on her feet twisting and putting smiles on every child and parents at my son's 2nd carnival theme bday this past weekend. We love her work so much that we ended up extending the time from 1.5 hr to 3 hours. She is very affordable for the quality of work that she does. I highly recommend her to anyone who wishes to add entertainment to their event.

We used them for the music , photo booth and dance lighting and they gave us everything we needed to make the party a fun night! If you’re looking for professionals who offer fun, affordable entertainment and lots of services then I would definitely suggest hiring Sound Choice Events.

Don was great; he was on time and was a big hit at our wedding. His work is fantastic and all of our guests commented on how personable and talented Don is. He was able to get through a lot of drawings quick to the delight of all our guests. I think I liked watching Don work rather than being the subject of his drawing. Either way, I would highly recommend Don for your next corporate or private event.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a bounce house?

Bounce houses, inflatable castles, moon bounces, inflatable slides and jumpy castles are all large-scale inflatable houses made for interactive entertainment. Commonly intended for children, bounces houses are made of PVC or other durable materials such as nylon or vinyl that when look like a house or castle when inflated. Rental companies deliver bounce houses to birthday parties, festivals, fairs and other events. The companies have industrial-grade blowers that fill the large structures with air to make them bounceable. A common size for a bounce house might be 15 feet by 15 feet by 13 feet. Bounce houses often have a flat, inflatable bottom pad and inflatable walls so that kids can jump and bounce without being hurt, along with a netting door and windows so that kids can see out and adults can see in. Bounce houses are suitable for both indoor or outdoor events, depending on the venue. For large events, rental companies often have a staff member who stays with the structure to monitor safety and keep it properly inflated. There are also wet/dry bounce houses with slides that you can hook up to a hose on hot summer days. A bounce house can be a fantastic addition to a party with kids, keeping them both entertained and contained.

Are bounce houses safe?

Bounce houses can be safe if operators and parents take proper precautions. Before renting from a company, confirm they are a legitimate company and hold any licenses and insurance required by your state. Ask to see reports of bounce house safety inspections provided by third parties, to make sure the equipment is in good operating condition to prevent injuries. If the rental company does not provide a staff member to oversee the bounce house for the duration of the rental, make sure you are properly trained on how to oversee the equipment. The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these guidelines for parents to help keep their kids safe when using a bounce house:  

  • Follow guidelines for safe installation including anchoring. Position away from fences, greenhouses, branches, etc., which would be dangerous should a child fall onto them.
  • Consider limiting use to children 6 years of age and older.
  • Have kids take off footwear, eyeglasses and jewelry before playing.
  • Take sharp objects (pens, keys) that could cause puncture injuries out of their pockets and hands before playing.
  • Don’t let kids of significantly different sizes into the bounce house at the same time. Smaller kids can get hurt by colliding with or falling under an older child.
  • Heed the height and weight regulations of the inflatable.
  • Food, drink, bottles, glasses, etc., should not be taken onto the bounce house.
  • Supervision should be maintained all the time. Supervision means watching constantly, not just being in the area.
  • Do not allow children to push other children off the inflatable. If it is a flatbed, this is especially important to avoid broken arms and legs. If the bounce house is walled, don’t let kids bounce against the walls and crash into one another — this can result in collision injuries.
  • Don’t exceed the maximum number of children at one time in the bounce house.
  • Don’t let kids climb onto the outside walls. Flips and rough play should also not be allowed.

How much does bounce a house cost to rent?

Bounce houses are a fun way to keep kids entertained during birthday parties and other events. The national average cost for renting a bounce house ranges between $160 and $200. Cost will be affected by the size, design and functions of the bounce house you rent as well as the length of the rental. A three-hour rental will likely cost less than an eight-hour rental. Many rental companies offer fun additions like popcorn machines or cotton candy makers, and provide packages with discounts on multiple items. Another item that you may want to rent with your inflatable is a generator to keep the bounce house inflated. Here are some examples of average inflatable rental costs, packages, and common add-ons that many companies provide:

  • Bounce house, 10x10x13-foot: $95.
  • Bounce house, 15x15x13.5-foot: $125.
  • Wet/dry slide, 14-foot: $150.
  • Wet/dry slide, 20-foot: $250.
  • Combo bouncer and slide, 24x10x13-foot: $140.
  • Combo bouncer and wet/dry slide, $175.
  • Folding chairs: $1.50 per chair.
  • 6-foot folding table: $8.
  • Snow cone machine: $45.
  • Popcorn machine: $55.
  • Cotton candy machine: $55.
  • 2300-watt generator: $75.
  • 3000-watt generator: $100.
  • $299.95 package: includes a 20-foot dual slide ($250), table ($8), 10 chairs ($15), and a popcorn machine ($55) — $29 savings.
  • $450 package: includes a double water slide ($350) and bounce castle ($130) — $30 savings.
