Four hours of awesome music from my daughters' personally selected "play list" entertained the kids for our double celebration (sweet 16/confirmation)! Nick made sure the DJ and photographer/photo booth were on top of it all, which made the evening a total success. Photo booth shots drew long lines as everyone enjoyed being goofy and serious for their party memories. It was very special that the photographer left the photo booth at times to capture those special ceremonial moments, like dang with dad, the "puzzle piece" ceremony, my girls dancing with their friends, one of my daughter's singing, and of course, the CAKE! Nick's personal renditions of Frank Sinatra favorites were a hit. I even heard someone in the crowd say, "That can't be him; he must be lip-sinking! He sounds too good!" But it WAS Nick! Nick encouraged the kids to dance but was not "Over the top" as I have seen in other "motivators". He facilitated the special dances and ceremonies included in the party, making each memorable. What a kind and flexible man Nick has been to work with. When you need Party Entertainment, go with the Best of ALL worlds, Nick Michaels and "The Best of Both Worlds"!

This was my first time using Thumbtack to find a vendor so I was a little apprehensive about the turnout. Needless to say, it turned out to be a great experience. They were able to accommodate my special request to match the theme of my daughter's party. The entertainer arrived before the scheduled performance time to set up. I was a little nervous booking the bubble show as it has to be indoors and I didn't want a mess inside my home but I was assured everything would be covered properly and it was. The kids, ages 1-10 were all engaged and the parents even started to venture in to watch. I'm glad I took a chance and went with Magical Memories Entertainment. It was definitely magical and memorable.

Sandra is absolutely super at what she does and I would definitely hire her again. She is very talented and her balloon creations drew gasps from kids and grown-ups alike. The kids enjoyed her puppet/magic show a lot too. She arrived on time and was also very prompt in replying emails while we were planning for the party. She is an extremely nice woman and showed no signs of tiring or impatience for the duration of the party. Many other parents enquired about her during the party and I have recommended her highly. Thank you Sandra!

Adam was awesome. This was the second time we hired him. He is very detail oriented, but fast. He was able to complete 43 ballooons "sculptures" in a time frame which we had allotted for 30-maybe 35. He's quick, talented, engaging, fun, professional; all the traits you want in a party entertainer. I highly recommend. Thanks Adam!

Rented a photobooth for a large Halloween party 180+ people many in wheelchairs and with disabilities. The photobooth operator was friendly, extremely patient and ensured that everyone had the best experience. The photos were great quality!

Tony D came to Dumknt to DJ my daughters 18th birthday party. He was professional throughout; collecting info on the party and asking about the requ Stef playlist. He came early, set up the gear, and got the party started. He was quick on his feet to accommodate requests during the party and get the kids involved, but he was never pushy and never made the party about himself. A great guy who DJ'd a great party. Thanks Tony D.

Sean "The Prankster" Magician has done a few shows for our resort, and will be back for more. "The Prankster" has a wide variety of tricks and shows, so even repeat customers will be surprised. Many entertainers don't interact well with an audience or ignores them completely, but not "The Prankster". "The Prankster" not only encourages the audience to participate in the show, but has many tricks where the audience is a hilarious part. We look forward to having Sean "The Prankster" Magician entertain our guests for years to come.

The 5 stars is only for Fran and my experience with her. She was great friendly the kids enjoyed Fran was prompt attentive understanding and did an awesome job. The Face painting wAs for a party of 20 for my daughters 2nd bday. Fran was the best. Teri should of told me who she was sending I was expecting her since I only communicated with her. And Teri also need to be more clear on how the pricing works. Teri also could be a little cheaper then what she charges doing an hour was around $10 per kid for a 5min or less face painting over all it was a good experience with Fran. I would probably look in to someone different for my next event to see different options. The 5 stars was only for Fran. :)

I hired talking machine for my wife's birthday surprise 40 th. Leading up to the event they were in constant contact with me about song requests and genres of songs we might want to here. If it was a song not on there playlist which is extensive they had no problem learning it for us which was awesome . The day of the show was not one of the best days to be playing the gig outdoors due to rain but they handled like pros and provided a awesome set for us. I would definitely use them again as they were awsome to do business with. Thank you so much talking machine for providing awsome entertainment for my party.

Kathie was very engaged from the moment she walked in the door. She made me feel that her participation was all about me and my party, and that she wanted to know everything possible about my guests and how best to interact with them. She was fantastic. She cares about every little detail, which makes for a complete entertainment package. I would recommend her for any type of occasion, whether it be a small venue, or a large arena. Having her at my occasion to entertain my guest was worth every cent.

We hired James to play instrumental guitar for our mom’s 100th birthday party. Frankly… he was great! On the day of the event he arrived on time, set up quickly, and got right to work. He played a wide variety of music throughout the afternoon including music from the 1940’s, exactly as we had requested. In addition to being a gifted musician, James was professional, competent and gracious to all of our guests. He was a pleasure to work with. James, thanks so much for a job well done!
