Hamilton was a true pleasure to work with. He was open and flexible - which enabled us to have him provide the entertainment for our event. We had a mixed generational crowd - and he geared the music towards everyone. Got feedback from folks that said it was the best event we had yet in the 40 years they've attended.

Lulu was great to work with. Super responsive, professional and on top of everything. We had the magician Louie and face painter/balloon maker also named Lulu come to our house. They were great and easily handled a lively bunch of kids. Professional, fun and great with the kids. i would highly recommend them both. This is the first time I had entertainment like this at my kids birthday party .... it took sooo much pressure off me - I would have them back,

We just wanted to say that we cannot thank Scott enough!!!! He and the band went above and beyond in not only taking on the task of learning new songs, but you sounded astounding. Any time that someone said "what a beautiful wedding" it was IMMEDIATELY followed by "and this band is AMAZING! How did you find someone so great?!" We were so thrilled. There could not have been a better way to seal the deal of an old school wedding vibe, and everyone from young to old said that it was all the band who made our vision complete. They played live music for the entire wedding, and although I was hidden for the beginning of the ceremony, as soon as we emerged after cocktail hour it was one of the first things that everyone said. Plus their rendition of La Vie En Rose was one of the most beautiful I've ever heard. We really cannot thank then enough and just want to express our gratitude for their talent, responsiveness, and overall absolute kindness. Sincerely, The Newlyweds

We had a string trio (Violin, Cello and Viola) for our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and the first hour of our reception. They were absolutely fantastic! Many guests mentioned how they liked the live music. Also, every process (initial contact, choosing songs, and on the wedding day) was very smooth, and Tara was very fast with all the responses. I strongly recommend Sweet Harmony!

DJ Anthony was probably one of the best DJ's I've ever had the pleasure to listen to. Anthony was the DJ at my 40th birthday party. The guests ranged from newborn to adults in their 80's. The music diversity was perfect and had everyone enjoying themselves. My guests and I were on the dance floor the ENTIRE NIGHT and had the absolute best time ever! I will be asking Anthony to DJ for me in the future....I will be recommending him to friends....I will tell everyone how wonderful he is! I can't say enough positive things about DJ Anthony!!!!

We were looking for something different to entertain a large group of people at a 35th birthday party. David was recommended to us by a friend and I have to say it was one of the highlights of the party. Everyone absolutely loved his performance; we still have no idea how he did all of it! His personality and great and the guests loved him. We would definitely recommend him for any type of event if you want to add some fun and unique entertainment.

I've used Vin City for numerous events ranging from black tie weddings to back yard birthday celebrations and everything in between! His meticulous preparation before an event is matched by his day of energy and song selection. He is a true professional through out the whole planning process through the end of your event! He is a joy to work with and I will continue recommending him to my clients for their entertainment needs!

Our event was a large company kids Christmas event, with kids ranging in age from infant to Teens and many different activities all going on at once. There were also many adults. Louis showed up to our event on time and jumped right in moving around performing magic for different groups. Louis is friendly, easy going, and professional. Our event was slightly crazy with kids moving all over the area, but Louis easily adjusted to the flow of the event. Kids and adults were amazed and intrigued by his magic tricks. Very entertaining. I would definitely recommend Louis and would hire him again!

Soulful Sounds were the perfect choice for our son's graduation party! It was an amazing night with thunderstorms, rainbow & music ! They played to a large gathering of over a 100 people. A very professional band who adjusted to the situation and played remarkably. Highly recommend!

Mark and John were incredibly punctual, professional, responsive, and entertaining. When my husband and I were running a minute late to the dance floor, Mark entertained the crowd and had everyone in good spirits. When the mariachi band showed up late, he made sure no one noticed by keeping the transition smooth. He made sure the party flew well. We were also very thankful for his and John's ability to know exactly what kind of music would get the crowd of various ages and ethnicities (mostly Italian, Brazilian, Eastern European, Indian, and Caribbean) moving on the dance floor. The dancing was the highlight of my reception and I thank Mark and John very much for all that they did!

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.
