I never used a dj service before outside of my live entertainment. I reached John and he was very professional and accomodating. He showed up early and even stayed a bit over to keep the crowd. His prices are right on target and I will use him the next chance I have.

I would certainly recommend Magical Mr. J for any special occasion with a large group of kids. He was easy to communicate with, came early to set up, and really captivated the attention of my 80 campers (which isn't easy to do.) He was great!

Cinnamon was fantastic! We will use her again. We had a corporate event and we didn't know how many kids would be in attendance and she had exactly what she needed to cover the unknown. The painting was top quality. The kids were beyond happy (as were the parents and us as the employer!). Thank you Cinnamon!!!! Can't wait to book another event with you.

Managing a country club pool requires scheduling numerous days/nights of entertainment. Integrity Audio not only provided this entertainment but adapted music and activities to suit the various crowds whether it be holiday party or a sweet 16. Josh showed up early, kept the crowd involved and was very personable. I highly recommend Integrity Audio for any occasion.

The children really enjoyed his performance. They were attentive and remained seated throughout the show. Would highly recommend him to others searching for entertainment for their children's parties, etc. We had approx. 50 children in attendance at our Breakfast with the Easter Bunny party.

People think that one of the most important things when planning a wedding is the dress. While much of the excitement and chatter comes from the dress my personal opinion is that the next most important thing aside from the food is your entertainment. My husband and I were ecstatic when we reached out to Showtime Entertainment and they had an opening for our special day!!!! We had seen Showtime Entertainment perform at a venue in the past and their professionalism and ability to read a crowd was second to none. Not only did Showtime deliver more than we could have ever asked for on our special day, the guests have not stopped talking about how incredible the music was and how much fun the dancing was that night! Art was extremely easy to communicate with, make recommendations that i hadn't thought of and delivered crowd pleasing entertainment all night. If you are looking for top quality, professionalism and entertainment that will be talked about for years to come-then Showtime Entertainment is your next call!!! Again, we cant thank you enough for making our already special day, SO MEMORABLE!

Tyson did a great job! My daughter's wedding was a small affair. The marriage ceremony, reception, dinner, and after party were all performed in the same facility . Not only did he entertain the guests at the after party with the music they wanted for dancing (He takes requests). But he also plays acoustic guitar. He accompanied my daughter's sister (a great singer herself) with his guitar during the wedding ceremony and with a tribute song at the reception. Everything went off as planned. It was a great day!!!

    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.
