Barbary Coast band and Pirate Balloonist for Union City event

Yo Ho Ho. Our Barbary Coast band and our Pirate Balloon Artist, were big hits for a Pirate theme at a Union City retirement home.

Here's the feedback from the Event Planner:

The Barbary Coast Band & the Pirate Balloonist were a hit at our picnic and were on campus by 11 a.m. to set up. The musicians willingly made the necessary adjustments as to areas to play when we encountered a sound problem; and they played in the auditorium and outdoors. They were very kind and entertaining. The audience was clapping and singing with them too.

The balloonist engaged well with the audience and children. They were very impressed by her.

Thank you, Stan, for your assistance with getting the entertainment. I received all positive comments about it and our BBQ too. All went very well and it was very successful.

Their event planner shared this feedback:

Hello, Stan:

I have no basis for comparison, this was the first time I worked with Tim.

However, it looked like he gave his 100% and more to our event.

President Obama impersonator at San Francisco party

A President Barack Obama impersonator was the surprise guest at a birthday in Walnut Creek. The stage was set when he entered to "Hail to the Chief" surrounded by bodyguards. He then gave a customized speech with comedy describing the accomplishments of the birthday gentleman, and added his own humor about the debt and decline of the dollar.

Here is Maureen's, his daughter's testimonial letter:

The party was great, but the highlight was definitely Michael’s appearance as President Obama. He seemed like he might have been just a little nervous, but hey, it’s not easy for President Obama to walk into a room full of Republicans, right? Will you please pass this email along to him so that he knows how much of a hit he was, how much everyone enjoyed meeting him and his lovely wife, Marion, and how happy I was to have them as our very special guests that evening. People were just beside themselves with him and I think he may have even hooked up with some possible future engagements. Many of them asked me how in the world I found him. Thanks again for everything. He really made the evening a very special one.

Elvis Charms the Crowd at San Francisco party

Our DJ performed "double duty" as an Elvis and Buddy Holly impersonator at a 50 person party in Danville.

Sarah arranged a DJ and casino gaming for her Mom's 65th birthday.

Here is Sarah's testimonial: "Hi Stan,

Well, I can't say enough about how much fun we had at our party and it was due, in large part, to Rob being here. everyone commented on how fabulous the music was and that it made everything just that much more fun. While everyone did gamble, the party eventually turned into an impromptu dance party of 50 people in our living room- a wonderful surprise I have to say! My mom turned 65, my stepdad is celebrating his 75th birthday, and most of our guests are similarly aged. To see them dancing so much for hours on end was so wonderful. I had blisters the next day and sore feet...a true testament to the great music and fun we had. Of course, Rob's transformation into Elvis was wonderful and he really got into it all; gyrating, singing, totally personifying The King. Rob was very sweet and professional and I hope you will express our gratitude to him for his being here.

thanks so much,
