Owner Alexia and Leslie are not only mother and daughter but make a terrific face painting duo and truly put the FUN in their company name! Both ladies were an absolute pleasure to work with and their level of professionalism, outgoing personalities, and artistry were top notch! We hired Funtastic Face Painting to provide entertainment for a charity awareness walk event and they exceeded any expectations that we had, going above and beyond making sure they ordered key paint colors to go a long with the event that extra measure meant more to us than they even know. We look forward to working with these ladies again in the future filling our face painting needs, and highly recommend that you book these ladies for your next event as you won't be disappointed!

Alexia did an amazing job at my son's 5th birthday party. All children were able to have their faces painted (20+) in a smooth, efficient manner. The kids loved the designs. I appreciate Alexia's professionalism and I would recommend her services for any party or event.

Mark was beyond great. He showed up 30 minutes before the actual show time went over some stuff with me. Patiently waited for us to finish eating and cut the cake and then he started his magic show. And boy was it magic. The kids were glued to the floor and didn't wanna miss a thing. All my guests were beyond happy and everything was great. I was very pleased with the show that mark put on for our party. I will always count on mark when I have a party and in need of entertainment. Great job!!

We hired Magic with a Twist for my daughter’s fifth birthday party! We had a blast! The kids were all very happy and excited and really enjoyed the entertainment and the balloons! The balloon art was amazing! Many choices were offered, so each kid could pick what type of ballon art they would like to have. John was funny and entertaining for both the children and adults! I would recommend and hire again ! He was professional, fun and entertaining!

Very happy with MJF Entertainment - Matt took the time to research the music we were looking for and put together several playlists for us to review - and that was all before we hired him for our wedding. No other DJ we contacted would do that. Was also willing to work with us on price which was appreciated. I would recommend using MJF Entertainment!

First, Jeff showed up 15 minutes early to set up which we appreciated. Great guy with excellent communication skills. We had a broad mix of people from 3 weeks old to 63 years and everything in between. Jeff was able to engage and entertain us all and hold all of our attention. One of our kids laughed that it seemed that none of us had ever seen a magic show before because we were all so engaged!! Jeff engaged with our grandkids too and had them help with some magic and did balloon characters for them too. They LOVED that!! Giving Jeff a two thumbs up as great entertainment for the whole family. We'll be inviting him back and highly recommending him for any occasion!!! Thanks Jeff!!

Jeff Wawrzaszek with A2 magic did an amazing job providing LIVE for Kids with an unforgettable experience that the children cannot stop talking about. He helped make our first children's event in downtown Ann Arbor a total success despite the weather inclement. We were excited when Jeff said he would be a part of the entertainment for the event and his show did not disappoint. We recommend Jeff with A2 magic for all types of ages as both the children and adults found it very enjoyable.

Jeff was great, we hired him for our Cub Scouts Blue and Gold celebration and the kids loved the show! He was understanding when the show time was slightly delayed, and was very professional the entire evening. It was a pleasure to work with him, I will be keeping his card and recommending his services to my friends. Great choice for family entertainment!

Fauxstar is a top quality entertainment company and Jamie was an excellent DJ. He displayed great professionalism and was responsive to my requests and suggestions. His arrival and punctuality was beyond reproach as he arrived early and was set up well before the party started. Music during cocktails and appetizers was appropriate but could have been more upbeat although he described what he would play and I agreed. He also suggested some karaoke and was well prepared so it went off without a hitch and was a great hit with the guests. In addition, he sang over a couple tracts and his excellent voice enhanced the effect. He could have assumed the role of MC to motivate the party goers a bit more but again there was no request from myself to do that and eventually the party was jumping. In retrospect there should have been more communication between the host and DJ before the event so expectations can be expressed. This was a great value and I recommend Fauxstar highly.

Fauxstar Entertainment was a great choice for my daughter's graduation party. I would definitely hire Jamie in the future for another event as well as recommend him to family and friends. He offers great ideas and keeps the crowd engaged. The karaoke option was a Big Hit and definitely entertaining to the guests. Best service and even better value! Thanks for everything!!

The gentleman setting up was punctual and very professional. Be sure to double check the name of your requested bounce house with the contract confirmation. Mine did not match, and I never heard back from the company on the confusion. The picture of the bounce house I requested was a better one than what I received. I only paid for the lessor one... but I had another option with another company for the better one that was similar pricing. More disappointing that I never received an apology for the confusion.

We hired Brennen for our school’s 5th grade Valentine’s Day party. He was quick to respond, polite, professional, on time, and good with the children. We didn’t want to worry about inappropriate language in songs to be a concern and it was not a concern. The kids had fun and we would recommend him to others for his Dj services. He showed up prepared and ready to go!

I like the atmosphere at Harris Conservatory; it's casual, but professional. As an adult student, I pass teens and children and parents when going to/ coming from lessons. My instructor is a skilled musician. And I live in Plymouth, so it's all walking distance. Definitely a place you should check out for lessons!

James is a great DJ. I run motor coach tours and have used James as the entertainment many times. He’s handled the music for the last 9 years for my ‘Detroit Fireworks’ tour in June for 130 to 150 passengers each time. He is very good about playing the type of music that fits each particular group of people. If you need a professional DJ, then James should be your first choice. Travel with Nance

The absolute Best !!!! I've been working with Robbie for over three years and it's been worth every minute. I drive from Holland MI to take my lesson every two weeks. So, If you want to put your music and its future in understanding and caring hands, Robbie is the instructor that can do that and develop you as a musician. Robbie will give all of his years of experience of being one of the best guitar players in the world. He truly wants for YOU to exceed. His only interest has been how he can ,make me a better guitar player. I cannot describe the inspiration you get when you learn from the best.Robbie cares about your lessons and he cares about you. He came with me and helped me chose my first quality guitar, and now it can play the blues !!!! Robbie has become an inspiration and mentor to me. You have to give Robbie a chance to inspire you in your journey to be a great guitar player. Robbie will not let you down, Robbie will lift you up and show you how to play with passion and emotion.

I started taking guitar lessons with Robert about eight months ago as a novice. Thanks to Robert's expert teaching, I am now playing bar chords, multiple scales, blues riffs, and songs by my favorite artists. Robert's system of teaching is so thorough - he makes sure his students understand music theory so that they can jam with the best of 'em ;) Any level of student can benefit greatly from Robert's teaching. He is a master guitar player and a wonderful person. Deciding to take lessons from Robert has been one of the best decisions in my life. Robert is not only my guitar teacher - he has become my friend and I look forward to spending time with him every week. If you are looking for an experience that will challenge you and enrich your life (without breaking the bank), take guitar lessons from Robert Noll. You will not regret it!

I have been taking lessons with Robert for around 5 years now and he has been an amazing teacher mentor and friend. Going into lessons I only knew a few chords and am now able to write and play a wide variety of music with confidence and ease. He has also been an extremely encouraging artistic mentor for myself and my friend who now write our own music. He is a wonderful collaborator and supports us by providing us with the resources to record our own music if we ever wish to and empowering opportunity. His laid back groovy attitude has made him a great friend and confidant. He has been there to help me through many emotional situations. I look forward to each and every lesson with him and highly recommend him to anyone seeking to improve their guitar skills.

We had DTour Band at our wedding in Grand Rapids, OH. It was really important for us to have live music for the reception and DTour absolutely exceeded our expectations. They were super easy to work with and kept the dance floor packed the entire night. I'm so happy that we chose to go with an upgraded package that included custom lighting and music during our cocktail and dinner hours. I'm still getting daily messages from our guests asking where we found the band. I would recommend DTour band to anyone looking to take their wedding or event to the next level.

I have found that when you experience Dtour live, you are amongst the finest musicians in Southeastern Michigan and beyond. Dtour has a knowledge of interacting with an audience that is incomparable on a level you must see at their live performance. The song selection is customized for each engagement and venue. Sound, Lights and Musicianship is way up on Top Shelf quality. With that said ... When traveling out for a night out... Take the signs that say, This way to Dtour. Enjoy.
