George A Magician was this years entertainment at our Annual Halloween Party and he did not disappoint! George performed a 40 minute high energy magic show for our audience consisting of around 100 older adults they were mesmerized throughout his entire performance! His magic combined with great humor kept everyone guessing on "how he did that" while laughing to his whitey humor. Additionally, George arrived on time, prepared, and ready to go! I recommend George for any performance big or small. Thank you George for the great show this Halloween!

George provided great entertainment for children between 3 and 9 and they liked his show. There was no real bunnies but he invited children to participate in his tricks. Overall a pleasant experience, will invite again if needed.

Brian was so much fun!! He DJed our wedding last weekend and we had an absolute blast! The dance floor was poppin the whole time and he did an excellent job of blending my Indian Bollywood music with top 40s, oldies, and all the other stuff we wanted. He was very easy to get ahold of throughout the planning process and helped make everything as easy as possible with his templates. I live out of state, but he was still very quick to respond by email, phone, and was able to coordinate with my parents to hash out all the details. He did a great job MCing and getting all the guests involved during the reception, and all in all we would 100% recommend him for any event!

Brian really made my wedding come to life! From the music to the lighting and for being an amazing MC! He kept everything moving and accommodated so many changes (and we had a ton) - when it came time for the dancing, he kept everyone on the dance floor! Thank you, thank you, thank you! You are amazing!

Obviously a professional Rick Anderson was helpful from the beginning. He returned calls in a timely manner, provided useful suggestions for marketing his show and our event, stayed in contact right up to the day of the event and gave me a sense that all would go well! As an event organizer I really appreciate the ease of working with Rick. The day of the event he was early, engaging and easy to work with. He started and finished on time. His show was absolutely amazing and so entertaining, He involved the audience throughout the show, And when the live bunny appeared everyone fell in love with it. Everyone had a really great time. We plan to have him back in the future.....and the magic rabbit, too!

All I can say is WOW. I seen other magicians at parties but nothing like this. He cost a little more than the other bids but was more than worth it. This is not a gut doing simple sill tricks for kids. The kids were laughing and squealing for almost an hour. What surprised me most was how much the adults were blown away by the magic. And how much they laughed too. I called a reference mom about him and her comments were so good I didn't believe he could really be that good. He was actually better than she told me. At the end Rick made a real live rabbit appear right next to my daughter and this was a huge hit and made my daughter's day.

The Great Surprisal was hired to be our event coordinator as well as serving as our emcee. This is an annual dinner/fundraiser for a small non-profit. Amelia worked with us from the beginning finding a caterer, hiring musicians, working with venue, coordinating volunteers for our silent auction as well as other parts of our evening. We increased our net income by over 25%! We had used the venue before but with the creativity and cost conscious Great Surprisal we had a totally transformed 'gym' from years gone by. Past attendees commented on the greatly improved environment, excellent food and the overall sense of a better-planned event. We will work with The Great Surprisal again and encourage others to do so. Last year we worked with The Great Suprisal as an emcee only. Customers should definitely check out 'Gina' as an addition to a party or event. We are very pleased with The Great Surprisal's work ethic and creativity of working on a limited budget.

Marcella did a great job for my 4 and 5 year olds combined birthday party. We had about 8 kids ranging from 2-5 years old. Her designs on the kids were awesome ranging from superhero to unicorns. My nephew got a spiderman face and he was so proud of it for the rest of the party and asked my sister if he could wear it to church. After face painting, she also made twisted balloons for all the kids. We had a couple kids show up at the end of time and Marcella graciously stayed a few more minutes for a small fee to twisted them ballons. My husband and another parent felt Marcella could be a little warmer and more engaging towards the kids. But overall they both were also pleased with her talent. I hope a couple of my family/friends will hire her at their party so we can enjoy her services again.

Overall the services were great during the event. Very professional and came prepared with the instructions we had for the cadence of our party and MC instructions. They tried very hard to get the attention of our group of individuals to keep to the timeline and for our White Elephant exchange which can be hard to do, with some humor. A few minor suggestions- communication and responsiveness leading up to the party could have been a little bit more timely, however we realize that it is a busy season. When planning it's important on our side that everything is accurate and ready to go. At the party with regard to music there were questions as to what should be played. We look to you as the experts based on our guidelines and trust that you're going to play great music to get the party started! :) We were satisfied and thank you so very much for being part of our celebration!

Music mix was good, although mixing karaoke with dance music ended up being a difficult mix to maintain. Only misstep may have been the DJ trying to liven up the party with a song that none of the guests knew, which may have contributed to the party ending a bit earlier. Otherwise, Evan was very personable and did a nice job.

Our experience at Studio Savage has been fabulous. My daughter asked me for violin lessons and we couldn't find a better match. Theresa is very patient and explains very well to my daughter what she need to practice during the week. The lessons are good and fun, some times lessons involve games than after a few weeks transform into songs on the violin. Also, my daughter is catching fast on notes and reading music while she plays. Most important, my daughter is still exited about the violins, I am happy because she is doing progress, and we both love the teacher.

Michael Benson Band played at our wedding last month. The band is awesome. They did everything from wedding music for the ceremony, our special requests for our dance, to Frank Sinatra jazz music during cocktail hour, to modern dance music covers until midnight. Friend's and family are still talking about how great the band was. They transition from one song to the next just like a DJ. My great friend in the entertainment industry was impressed by the bands endurance. They kept everybody out on the dance floor for our entire party! Finally, they really only took two short breaks, one during dinner that was barely noticed, and one brief one after 2 hours of pretty intense dancing. They were well worth the money. I highly recommend hiring them for your event.

We had Ford play at our Parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary. We wanted live music that would allow for conversation. He was a perfect fit and did a great job at the little things and big things. He arrived early, stayed through the whole event, and timed breaks well with the program. He also was able to play to a slide show we brought with essentially no prep time! Amazing. Ford was great - we would hire him again in a second!

Inviting Paisely over to entertain our guests was such a good decision. She is great with kids, interacted with them and kept them focused on the various activities she had planned for. She made balloons, did face painting and also presented a small magic show for the kids. The kids were excited and happy. We did not have to worry too much about engaging kids in anything else! She is professional and extremely responsive as well. I would suggest Paisley to everyone who's looking to entertain either a small or big group of kids.

I hosted a carnival themed party for about 50 guests (young and young at heart). Since several groups of guests didn't know each other very well, I wanted someone to help me create moments to bind the group, entertain, and be uniquely memorable. Erik was the perfect ingredient to provide laughter, shock, and awe! His up close magic tricks left everyone smiling. Loved having him at the party!

I hired Lex Maurer's jazz trio (guitar, bass, drums) for my backyard garden party in July 2016, and was very pleased. The band arrived on time and were set up and ready to play when our guests arrived. The musicians were all excellent, and they played a good mix of jazz, latin jazz, and instrumental popular tunes that our family and friends knew and enjoyed. Mr. Maurer and his trio was exactly what I was looking for, and I would hire them again. -Josh O. Seattle WA

Ed Mays Groove Kitchen’s music is full of jazzy delta blues, pop, rock and funk as well, for a sound that is timeless yet modern in it's own way. It’s kind of like stepping back in time, but with the keys to the Porche. This group - is undeniably charming, and undeniably entertaining. Not to mention pretty darn talented. Our guests ranged in all ages, and everyone loved Ed Mays Groove Kitchen. If you want your wedding reception, or whatever event to really "Groove", book this band! -Christy K, Seattle, WA

I come from a big family of dancers, so music was an important part of my wedding. Our family doesn't get to see each other often because we are all over the US, and it was a great time for everyone to bond. Our meetings with Michael were pretty fun, because he enjoyed talking about the music and what we wanted the 'mood' of our wedding to be. We told him we wanted it to be fun, with lots of dancing of course. Dinner music was appropriately fun, but not the best of hits. He saved those for when the dancing started. It began with songs everyone knew, and it's impossible not to dance to, then moved on to more specialized genres of music, all upbeat. We specifically didn't want any slow songs and he made sure to keep it all within our liking. Overall, my feet hurt a lot at the end of the night but it was all I had hoped for. From his music selection, quick setup and teardown,and his MC skills, Michael was the ideal wedding DJ.

Michael was an excellent DJ. We had a very formal wedding, and appreciated that he was dressed up to the point where you couldn't tell him from any of the guests. Setup was fast and the selection of music was excellent. We weren't sure what we wanted our music to be like, so he started out with some classics and appealed to the crowd. We had several songs we did not want played and he respected that request, and took additional requests from the guests. He was very personable and made sure that everything went smoothly on our wedding day. His ability to gauge what type of music people were enjoying was excellent, and although the wedding was very formal, we got some great pictures of people dancing like crazy. I would use him again in a heartbeat.

Michael did a wonderful job for our wedding, but what we really appreciated was the information that he provided as we prepared for the event.
