I have written 2 reviews. Scott was professional in every way, efficient, knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful to us. I am the pianist and I do not read music. I play strictly by ear and he treated me like I was a pro. I certainly recommend Mr. Loehr. Laura & Jerry McElroy First Century Church of Promise in Seagoville, TX

These guys are awesome and they are very much impressive with their entertainment and all the Kids and Adults at the birthday party were happy and had lots of fun with their balloon twisting and face painting skills. It's worth the money spent on it and will recommend them to a friend or a family .

As I said, Rick was "Excellent". He entertained our Red Hatters group. He kept us laughing and amazed the whole time he was there. I was told he was the BEST entertainer we have had. He even came dressed in Red and Purple (Red Hat colors that we wear). If there are any Red Hat Groups that need entertainment the "tRICKster is the one!! I highly recommend him.

Brian is a very nice guy to work with and was very responsive to phone visits prior to the wedding reception. Only complaint was that a few times during the reception, his music was followed by some sort of commercial.....not sure if he was operating off of Pandora or pulling music off of internet. I would suggest that he download some of the requested songs that we provided to a play list so that this doesn't happen in the future.....but this could have been due to various requests throughout the night that he was not prepared for. Overall Brian provided a good service for a fair price and I would recommend him with the caveat of the suggestion mentioned above.

She is fantastic! She was prompt, fit right into the activities that was created for the party and has a great personality. Her smiles was vibrant and helped break that shyness that most children have when someone is brought in for entertainment. From the time that she step foot into my child's event until the time that she left; she had a positive impact on each child! She is definitely skilled and very creative with face painting. Each child was extremely satisfied with their face painting. When she twisted balloons; she allowed all of the children to interact with her and I loved that. All of children were amused, entertained, extremely satisfied and did not want her to leave. I will definitely reach out to her for future events!

Bobby did a wonderful job at our wedding. We are in our 60's and had an older crowd, what he did so well was his selection of music and the fact that he didn't try and entertain the group with his wit or excessive dialogue. He let his music be the entertainment that was right on with the appropriate volume. I recommend Bobby Shaw

Miriam was wonderful! I am so glad I found her and I would absolutely hire her again and will recommend her to friends. She spoke with me before the event to find out details, what type of music I would prefer, and what kind of tone I'd like to set with it. The guests commented they really enjoyed the music, that it wasn't over-powering or too loud, and that it set the right mood for the cocktail reception. Thank you, Miriam for helping make our special day even more special! Fernando and Angela

I had a very small holiday party for a few friends and family. Brian showed up early and stayed later than what we had agreed which was well worth it all. He kept all of us memorized with his quick and witty card tricks. He was amazing and quite a quirky character. I have had many remarks about him since the party. Would definatly recommend him to anyone looking for entertainment.

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for setting me up with Hubert Pralitz and James Michael Williams to play at our wedding back in June in McKinney. They did a fantastic job! For many years I dreamed of having live classical music playing at my ceremony and that was a detail I did not want to pass up on. It was something I had to have and these two delivered and made my dream come alive in more ways than one. You have no idea. They have no idea. All of my guests have commented on how beautifully they both played. The icing on the moment was when they played while my friend sang The Prayer. I cannot convey how much that song means to me and it was a detail that I had to make happen. And boy did it happen! It was truly beautiful! As I watch the video it amazes me that they never rehearsed together yet they all meshed so beautifully as if they had done this many times before. That is a sign of truly talented musicians. My only regret is that I did not get to personally meet Hubert and James after our ceremony therefore I did not get to personally thank them from the bottom of my heart for sharing their talent with us. As you can imagine, after the ceremony things moved very quickly and we were whisked here and whisked there. Before I knew it, they had left and I did not get a chance to speak with them both. If you could do me a huge favor, please let them know how wonderful they were, how much this all meant to me and that I thank you them very much. Feel free to share this email as well. By the way, my friend Desiree had nothing but wonderful things to say about Hubert and James and she was delighted to work with them.

His presentations are funny, entertaining and insightful. I guarantee you will learn something you did not know about the movies at one of Larry's presentations. Plus you'll be entertained. The guy has stories about virtually everyone in the movie industry... he's interviewed them all. Don't miss him if you ever get the opportunity.

Tracy DJ'd my sister's wedding. The services performed met all expectations. We had no "concrete plan" on how the music of the event was to be handled and Tracy jumped right in to help with the flow of the event. He communicated with me every step of the way, and made very helpful suggestions as well. His friendly attitude added to the event as a whole.

I am a Broadway cabaret producer and promoter. I had a high-end Cabaret in Nashville where I brought several Broadway and Cabaret performers in as the headline act for my shows. My audiences averaged 150 people per show who were used to upscale entertainment, expecting quality and value for their ticket price. I used Brice several times to greet guests, do table card tricks, hypnotism and various magic tricks before and after the headliner’s performance. Brice was very personable, entertaining, polite with my guests and my crew and made friends with everyone. My audiences always commented on how much they looked forward to seeing Brice. I recall one time when I hosted a cast party for the cast and crew of the Broadway musical Wicked, cast members and their crew were so impressed with Brice they invited him to personally come back to see the show and escorted him backstage for a tour. Anyone looking for a magician with class and finesse who can entertain and amaze any audience, this is your man.

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.
