Alan provided perfect entertainment to the kids at our son's birthday party. He couldn't stop talking about it for days. Alan had great tricks for the kids and was very age appropriate.

I located Andrea through the Thumbtack site for our corporate function/BBQ at the Oregon Zoo. We had about 250 guests total. She arrived on time with her whole face paint setup (painting chair, equipment, etc). She is VERY friendly, approachable, outgoing and even had her own face painted! We had dozens of children attend and Andrea was efficient without compromising the quality of her work. She provided a wide variety of designs for our guests. Everyone was very impressed. We will be contacting her for the next event. Great price. Great work!

Noteworthy DJ's are the best. I chose this company after calling several (google search) because they were by far the most professional on the phone and immediately made me feel confident that they knew what they were doing and would follow through. It's a little scary choosing a company "sight unseen", especially when you are responsible for a major company holiday party. We were SO impressed! It was the best party to date! Paul was our DJ and what a resourceful guy and joy to work with. He is fantastic! The uplighting, event coordination, song choices, willingness to work with us, being flexible, working with our staged show, etc.... all went as planned and was perfect. Thank you SO very much for helping turn our 1920's theme party idea into a reality with the utmost success. Don't hesitate. If you need a DJ, entertainment company you can count on.... Hire Noteworthy!!! Sincerely, Y Troutman Event Coordinator

What do you want out of your DJ? If you are after a professional who contacts you before your event enough to thoroughly understand all of your requirements, Melvin is your man. If you want someone who will show up and keep your party moving from start to finish, Melvin can handle it. If you need someone who is a master on the mic (when the time is right), Melvin will meet your needs! He kept everyone at our wedding dancing all night long (even in the summer heat!). He played all of the walking music at the perfect times and was so focused on keeping the music going, he didn't even sit down to eat during cocktail hour (he stood up to eat while keeping the music going!). We couldn't have asked for a better DJ! Thanks again Melvin.

We created a life-long memory for my husband's surprise 60th birthday party and David and the All Requests Live band were a big part of that! They were so easy to work with. The videos they provided really impressed me and they more than delivered! They talked with the guests to see if they had any special requests and I think they managed to perform almost every one of them from multiple decades and various genres. They were very flexible and at the last minute even hooked up my niece's phone to their system so she could sing a dedication song she'd been working on that we had no idea about. My family is not known for cutting a rug but everyone was on their feet and had the most amazing time. Thank you so much ARL!

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with the outstanding DJ, Denmark W on several occasions. He is my dependable go-to-guy when I want to host a great and fun party. I started using his services for a very special and personally important party. Not only did he read the large and diverse group of attendees well and played a fantastic range of suitable music, but he kept us entertained with games of participation and crazy fun throughout a long, celebratory evening. All guests were welcome to participate, have a little gentle fun poked at them in a sweet way, and then all laugh together at the outcome. I was hooked! And since then I have used his services for at least one party per year in different locations around my hometown, Portland, OR. These have ranged from personal parties, fundraiser events, and movie nights. I have attended elegant weddings and children's parties where his adaptable style perfectly fits the mood of each event. At one of my parties, he shared the stage with a live band, and he shared some of his equipment when the band found they were missing some. He and the band members built an instant rapport that has lasted during later encounters over the years. At fundraisers he takes on the helpful duty of encouraging bidders to get on with the business of raising money for our very worthy cause. He has always arrived early or on time, and ready to pitch in with whatever is needed; indoors or out; rain or shine. He is open to the host and the guests at events, willing to take suggestions, and prepared with options and sometimes surprises. For the first event I hired Denmark, I gave him a set list request, and he did a great job extrapolating and spinning tunes I would never have considered with happy, pleasing results. He has stepped in to lead dances when the floor gets a little confused or lost; every time there was unity and good times restored to the dance. He graciously accepts a dance request from me near the end of his shift at each event, and he dances as smoothly as he spins! He has served as MC at events as planned, and he has also stepped up to the role with easy grace when another planned MC was not able to perform that duty. His smile and laugh grace the entire span of each event without fail, adding a wonderful personal touch to a very professional job. I cannot wait to host another event and use the services of this wonderful guy. Everyone should be so lucky!

Phil did an exceptional job at our wedding. He played the steel drum at our outdoor wedding before the ceremony began. He played beautiful music of our choosing on the grand piano during our cocktail hour. Then D J'd the reception while playing a variety of live music on his keyboard and the steel drum. He played music of our choosing as well as requests from our guests. Phil knew exactly what to do and when to do it and performed with little or no direction. Our guests loved Phil and commented on how great he was. He provided and set up all his own professional quality sound and lighting equipment and even video taped his performance and the dancing. Thank you Phil for making our wedding so memorable.

Fantastic experience! Our wedding was perfect thanks to them. Kurt was on-time, professional, and set up everything perfectly. He is a great MC and DJ, knows how to set the mood, and all his equipments/lights are top notch. The entire process from start to finish was so easy. I will recommend Big Adventure Entertainment to everyone!

DJ Collin went above and beyond our expectations! I performed some heavy research comparing DJ services before we decided to move forward with Significa. I met with him a few months before our wedding at Cooper's Hall to discuss the vibe and right off the bat I knew we were on the same page. He was open about allowing me to select music for each stage of the event. We continually stayed in contact as I sent him playlists on Spotify and he was quick to respond anytime I did. He was on top of the set-up music, welcome music, precessional, recessional, cocktail hour, first dance, dinner, cake cutting and dance music. He also announced transitional stages throughout the night. His directions were extremely organized and led to seamless transitions throughout the evening. He arrived a couple hours early to perform a soundcheck in order to ensure everybody was mic'd up and ready to go. Throughout the event, he displayed extreme attention to detail and did not make any mistakes. We had many compliments regarding the music selection and he was open to take requests from people on the dancefloor. We were elated to have such a fun wedding on a Sunday evening, which we knew could be a challenge with guests having to work the next day. He was an extremely affordable option compared to other DJs in the area, who only had digital setups. Collin provides two turntables that contributed to the overall aesthetic of the wedding and allowed him to demonstrate his skills and include his personal record collection. In addition to the DJ, they also provided us with a magic mirror photobooth and props for the pictures. This setup did not take up much space and was fully interactive with our guests. People loved it and we are glad we chose to go with them in order to preserve the memories. We were so lucky to find such a prepared, friendly and organized vendor to make sure our night was perfect. I can't say enough about how nice it was to trust somebody to take over such an important aspect of the wedding. Recommend 100%!!

Oh my gosh, what fun was had by all. We hired a balloon artist and two face painters but these were not just any artists. This was Peter Pan and Tinker Bell and they brought Jasmine (princess in Aladdin) along too. I also had Ariel the Mermaid at a private event a week ago and was so impressed with her performance and these folks I can't say enough. They all stayed in character, they were wonderful with the kids (about 50 of them at the firm picnic) and such a pleasure to watch. At both events they were the center of the fun for the kids. Even the older kids (25-60) got painted and enjoyed the humor of the artists. The private event was an hour the firm event was 4 hours and these artists were "on" the entire time. They were on time (even early) to set up and they were ready to go when the first children arrived. I was totally charmed and will definitely use the Dragon Theater again for children's events.
