We hired Paul to be our DJ at a corporate event at a local hotel. We were very pleased with his selection of music which totally went with the flow of the meeting. We had numerous things going on and his sense of knowing what to play worked for us. We don't normally have people dancing at our corporate events but the music Paul played had many kicking up their heels! I was very happy with Paul and he brought lights and sound and truly contributed to make our event a success. I will definitely call upon Paul again when we need a DJ! Thanks Paul!

Adam was so fun and easy to work with! My husband and I love Disney and wanted to incorporate that with our music and Adam had such a great mix of Disney and mainstream. My parents are bummed that he's in Illinois and not Colorado where they live so that they can use him for my sisters' weddings :) Our guests had so much fun and we thought the night was perfect! Thank you, Adam for giving us an unbelievable experience!

My daughter used Karen for our grand daughter's birthday party, and I was so impressed with Karen and her talent, that I hired her to do our competition dance team banquet. She is amazingly talented and just really a great person. She was interacting with all our dancers and their parents and all the kids were so thrilled with their face paintings! I believe she even booked a few more parties off of this one. I would highly recommend her! She is very reasonably priced and I know that you will be extremely happy with her! -Robin Lind Owner of Dance Tech Studios

He was WONDERFUL! He was very interactive with both the children and adults! I am glad that we decided to try a new Santa this year. We will definitely use him next year! He had a wonderful beard and a very genuine, "Ho. Ho. Ho." He even stayed around a short bit afterwards for more pictures. I DEFINITELY recommend Santa Steve!

Mr. Madison has DJ'd for our company events numerous times, and is always a crowd pleaser. Everyone gets out on the dance floor to enjoy themselves, and he gets involved in making the event a fun experience for guests. He takes requests, but knows how to regulate them, as to not interfere with the feel of the party. He is a true professional, and I would recommend him for any event!

My company hired DJ Freddy Fresh to provide music for a corporate event this past December. We could not have been happier with the results. Freddy was very collaborative throughout the planning stage of the event, and delivered a great product for the attendees. Through very clear communication, he was able to gauge the mood/feel/theme we were going for and provided a playlist that absolutely captured the spirit we had envisioned. He was a consummate professional the entire evening, and a joy to work with on this project. If the need should arise, we would definitely hire him again.

I have been taking lessons with Shulamit for about 4 months now, and her teaching has helped me immensely to improve. She is incredibly knowledgeable about all things music and is able to offer truly helpful insight that is rare among piano teachers. She is willing to help push me when I wish to strive for harder pieces, but also understands and helps me when I need more practice. I would highly recommend Shulamit to anyone wishing to take piano lessons.

Kristoff was captivating. We had Kristoff for our church fundraiser and he completely had over 200 people (sitting in a tight church basement) at the edge of there seats with every trick he performed. He has a nice way of bringing any and everyone into his performances. His delivery is inviting and his magic is sensational. I highly recommend him for any event that needs or is looking for a quality show. Great entertainment for a reasonable price, can't wait to get him back. You wont be disappointed .

We contracted Ben to DJ for our Senior Sendoff celebration from Luther College and he was nothing but absolutely outstanding! As most of the celebration was planned by students there was bound to be some snags in the plan and he was quick to adapt to our changes and needs. He was also great with taking requests from people and kept it clean and fun, which for a school function was exactly what we needed. There wasn't a moment when people weren't dancing to his music. Communication was also easy leading up to the event and set-up/tear down was all taken care of by Ben himself. Fantastic DJ, fantastic person, and energy!

A Touch of Magic is a FIRST CLASS ACT on all levels!!

The balloon artists and face painter were the best addition to our Annual Company Picnic. It was fun to listen to the people raving about the both the face painter and balloon art that was created. They were quick and entertaining and captivating to see them interact with their audience. We would not think twice about having the staff back every year at this annual event. A Touch of Magic is the best in the business for this type of entertainment. They took very good care of us and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for your event!

Joey Olson played music and DJ'd for my wedding. My wife and I are both musically challenged to say the least, so it was a huge blessing knowing that Joey was well experienced in all facets of the industry to take the project on himself. He did great. The music and sound quality could not have gone any better. I would definitely hire Joey for all of your sound and music needs.

Tim was AMAZING! It was a professional reception (medical staff w/ spouse and legislators). All the guests enjoyed the music, many asking how we found him and how they could book him for a future event. I'd hire Tim again in a heartbeat!
