…Great entertainment for kids. They really get the kids participating.  Very professional and lots of fun.  I would give them two thumbs up!!”  Yelper Review June 2012

“…Lori & RJ rock the house with their musical talents and variety in their shows.  I have used their services for over 5 years now and I have been more than pleased with what they do.  The children love watching and interacting throughout the show.  It is something they talk about for days after.   Lori has such a bubbly and joyful personality you cannot help but feel better in her presence.  RJ is so creative and funny and such a wonderful person to be around.  I would highly recommend them for any children’s event, party or festival.” Yelper Review


“…As a patron of Cotton Candy Express for many years now, I took my grandchild to a recent performance and was very happy to see that my grandchild had just as much fun as my kids, when they were little’! They are still fresh, consistently adding new songs, acts, games and such. Adults will enjoy the excellent musicianship of Lori & RJ while the kids are enraptured by their act. At one recent performance at Blackhawk Plaza, the power went out for several hours, so they did their entire performance “unplugged”, thus saving the day! Hope they are still performing when I have great-grandchildren!”  Happy Grandma Michele McD

“…My family has been a big fan of Lori & RJ since they were the hosts of KTVU Fox Kids Club and then WB20 Kids.  Not only have I hired them for many of my parties, we’re  groupies.  We have grown up with them in the bay area.  The music is perfect for all occasions and we’ve had them for almost every seasonal event.  I find Lori to be very easy and flexible to work with and always accommodates my needs and more importantly the needs of the event.    Everything they do is interactive with the kids, very lively, entertaining and professional.   By the time the kids are pooped out the adults are ready to party.  Lori and RJ have an amazing repertoire and had the adults enjoying as much as the kids with Motown, Rock, R&B, and more.  I highly recommend this group for any party and any event where you are looking for professional family entertainment. I’ve used them for my 3 and 5 year old’s and then again for my 9 and 10 year olds.  Lori & RJ you rock!!”  Hillsborough Mom
