John provided our Company with musical entertainment for our Holiday party. He did a wonderful job of engaging our group. I was skeptical about having karaoke at this event, but John was an excellent motivator; the tone deaf lost their inhibitions and a great time was had by all!

I've been to many venues with good times, and there's no greater organization. From parties to karaoke, its truly a well, and true diverse organization not to mention phenomenal musical genres that they cover: hip hop, r&b, and countless others. You want entertainment, good times is the way to go. Extremely 5 stars. Keep rockin

The lady that did the face painting & balloon animals was so nice & did a great job...especially with the little ones. All of the kids had fun playing with the balloons & they loved their face paint. She arrived on time & was very professional. Unfortunately, I can't remember her name but I would definitely recommend All About Fun Entertainment & I will consider using this company again in the future.

Kd provided a high level of entertainment not only in his stand up comedy, but also in his co-hosting of the awards at our company's event. Highly recommend for an event of mixed adult ages that would not appreciate a more lewd comic!!!

We were extremely happy with all the effort Belton Entertainment put forth to help make our back to school night a great success. Our students and their families left with smiles and a wonderful overall shared experience learning about their school. The great balloons and painted faces were a big part of creating the fun and exciting atmosphere for the evening, so thanks again to Andrea and her team at Belton Entertainment.

Jerry is a terrific performer. He is truly entertaining and able to capture his audience with a magic presentation that will leave you laughing and then asking yourself “what? wait, how’d he do that?” I have seen Jerry displaying his magical talent on many occasions, he adapts extremely well to all generations as well.

We have had 4 or 5 lessons with Dana and she has been fantastic. My daughter likes how "fun" she is, and most importantly she allows my daughter to grow and learn at a pace that feels customized to my her. We've had a few other music teachers before her (other instruments) and we like Dana the best! Kids like a teacher who is fun, and parents want a teacher who will keep the progress coming and Mrs Brawley is the best of both.

About

Jack Winn-tet is a four-piece band consisting of alto sax-vocals, drums, piano and bass. The repertoire is extensive, including standard selections from the thirties and forties, light rock, Latin and other specials. Jack Winn-tetwill will add entertainment to your special parties and wedding receptions and of course, dances. They have performed for numerous private functions to include wedding receptions, anniversary celebrations, corporate parties and reunions. During the past five years, the band has played many engagements for dining and early bar hours at local restaurants in the Richmond area. Originally, Jack Winn formed the Jack-Winn-tet in the early '60s, and reformed it after his retirement as supervisor of performing arts in a major school system. Upon reflecting back to the sounds of jazz and old standards that were popular when he was a college music major, he was encouraged by many to bring back that sound for audiences today. The effort was made, and the musicians were found who capture the beat and mood with finesse to make the band’s music satisfying to the dancer and the listener. Jack Winn-tet makes the effort to please the dancing and listening crowd with music that is never too loud for a conversation. Below is the website for Jack Winn and The Jack Winn-tet based out of Richmond, Virginia. Information will be noted in detail in this area. Be sure to check back frequently.

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.
