The guests were wowed by the raffle girl and stilted birds costumes and the steel drummer was phenomenal. The raffle girls were just perfect, they weren’t pushy and they were super fun. All of these layers just made the event! I truly can’t say enough. Thanks!

  • Jon, I don't think we have enough words to describe how fabulous your entertainment was last night!!! Everyone was just absolutely amazing - the cocktail reception was brought alive by the stilt walkers, contortionist and spiral diva...and thank you so much for your kindness in adding the juggler in kind, that was so so nice and unexpected. We loved how all the entertainers were on the dance floor as guests moved through for dinner - it really added to the theatrics of the night.  And as for the aerial artists - well I've never seen our crowd so quiet and mesmerized at a gala...they were just wonderful!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! It's been such a pleasure to work with J & D Entertainment!

  • Good Evening, Jon:
    The word at the shower is it would not have been the same without the lovely Alice and the mad Mad Hatter.  Your talent was phenomenal.  We loved having them as part of this special occasion!  Truly, they were AMAZING.  Everyone loved them...especially, my 9 year old cousin who was sure "Alice liked her best".  Truly, I think the pictures say it all.  Everyone posed with them and they made the party feel like a true Wonderland.  It was a pleasure working with you.  I value your kindness and professionalism and look forward to the opportunity to work with you in the future.
    Many thanks,
    Jill Gracely

    The party was a big success and the entertainment contributed to making it so. Gabriella the belly dancer  was very wonderful and so sweet to put up with the heat.  Jamie the magician was awesome.  Everyone is still talking about his bag of tricks.  I have no idea how he did some of those things.  He's the best magician I've ever seen.
    I will definitely call J&D for my next party, you guys are the best in Houston!
    Very Best and Much Continued Success,
