POWER UP PARTIES IS THE BRAINCHILD OF AWARD-WINNING COMEDIENNE, WENDI (AKA WINDY WYNAZZ).
She had a dream of starting a female-run entertainment company that empowered children to be their strongest, most powerful selves through the medium of comedy and play. All while keeping the delight of dress-up and imagination alive.
That dream has now grown into one of the most popular, entertainment offerings, with a core team of highly-trained, certified children entertainment specialists who all share a similar vision of powerful, transformative fun.
I found this entertainment company by posting some details about an end-of-year school party on GigSalad. I could not be happier that they responded. For starters, their price was reasonable (median price point for the time / people constraints). They handled all the up-front logistics, right away. It was so easy to work with them that it was a real relief.
On the day of the performance, our performer, Windy did a phenomenal job. Not only was she a great performer, but she let me know early in the week week when she would arrive, and generally made it really easy to coordinate with her. The kids were utterly absorbed with her performance, and nearly all of the 100+ kids on our school's campus sat through all 45 minutes. I don't know if I need to tell you this, but that's really special.
I could not be more pleased with how well this all went.
Windy was great! The kids loved the show and face-painting. She was very professional and stayed extra time to make sure all the kids got their faces painted. A wonderful performer and entertainer!
I highly recommend Wynazz! I hired her at my sons 1st bday party Peter Pan theme and she cake as a pirate. Everybody had a great time and enjoyed her pirate training and games!! Moreover, She’s very professional and prompt. I highly recommend her, in fact I’m hiring her again to my next event.
Windy did a fantastic job for my Daugther's 4th birthday. She arrived on time at our daughter's daycare and came prepared to entertain my daughter's class. She performed a routine consisting of a magic act and a puppet show. My daughter kept talking about it for days and was super happy with Windy. Thank you Windy for giving our daughter and her friends a birthday to remember!
Elsa was absolutely amazing. She was so good with all the kids!
Response from Power Up Parties:
We're so glad you enjoyed Andrea's performance! She is truly magical with children. Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your celebration!
Andrea was great with kids keeping them amused
Response from Power Up Parties:
We're go happy to hear this! We love adding that extra bit of pizzazz to make your party really sparkle. Andrea had such a wonderful experience with all your guests and we're so glad they got to experience her Halloween-tastic Magic Show.
LAST MINUTE BOOKING. She was amazing!! I booked her a day before the event, we had to move my daughter's 1st birthday indoors due to the fire. She came before the event started to set up. The kids (and a few adults) got amazing face-painting; she made the kids feel oh so joyful! My brother's though that I knew her for years, because of the way she casually interacts with people/kids. She saved the day, the kids had a great time with the comedy/magic show. Thank you so much!!
Highly recommended...professional, organized...she did a beautiful job face painting with quality paints.
The kids had a great time!
Thanks Wynazz Pizzaz!
Wonder Woman was AMAZing! She got all the kids moving and excited, even the ones who were a little hesitant. It was non stop activities and everyone enjoyed watching the action. As the host of the party (aka mom) it was such a relief to not have to worry about entertaining kids ages 2-12! So worth it and am highly recommending this professional, Windy! Thank you so much for making Lola's party so memorable! It won't soon be forgotten!
From the moment I saw Winnie's profile on gig salad, I knew that will be amazing! She came in with a big smile and the right attitude - the kids love her! I'm fortunate to book her, she is one of a kind award winning performer. Definitely one of the highlights of the party. 😀
Windy was on time , great with kids and her show will entertain all. This is the second time I had her preform at my children birthday party and she is so funny just an AMAZING great time! Thanks Windy!
Luna our entertainer was very nice. The bubble show was a huge hit. Kids loved every bit of it and the balloon twisting as always is fun.
Let me start, that Windy is very a good business lady - she is prompt, communicative, detail oriented, punctual and responsible. I explained the need of our party and she came up with very creative ideas right away. She always responded to me in a timely manner, whenever I need to confirm details or have any suggestions. We celebrated the 7th birthday of my daughter on the playground. Most of the kids was around 7-8 years old, but there were plenty of younger and older siblings, and everyone was involved. Nobody was behind. Every child came to me at the end of the party with the words " It was AWESOME!!!!". Even spoiled parents told me that Windy is great performer and we had a good time watching our kids playing and smiling. I am highly recommend Wynazz Pizzaz)))) Thank you for creating a good memories for our kids!
Luma was great! I would definetly hire her again! She added fun and color to my son's 2 bday party!
She was professional and on time! The children loved the magic show and face painting was wonderful.
Windy is a great performer. Couldn't ask for a better show for my daughter. She looked so beautiful with her Elsa character, and my 3 year old got fascinated with her. It is always hard to make my little one smile, but you did it. I know she will never forget you, because she already miss you. Thanks Windy.
Windy did such a terrific job with face painting and a magic show at my son's 5th birthday party. Her performance had the children completely engaged and delighted. When more kids showed up than expected she went above and beyond in helping everyone. She contributed mightily to my son having a wonderful and memorable party.
Wynazz delivered a great performance at my daughter's 5th birthday. She was prompt and communicative in the weeks leading up to the party and rolled in prepared and ready to go. She's also an amazing balloon twister which was such a crowd pleaser after the show. Thanks Wynazz!
We hired Wendy for my daughters 5th birthday. We had a tea party and she was the fairy god mother. The girls loved her. Would definitely use again.
So much energy and kids had lots of fun!! Impressive the passion she puts in what she does!!
Luma is awesome !
Kids love her. She did Face painting, Magic Show and Group activities excellent.
Thank you guys so much for good time!
We had a party with Wynazz Pizzazz last week and it was incredible! Princess Windy is a very quirky, silly and engaging entertainer who had all the children sitting, watching, mouths-open and fully engaged (if only I could figure out her secret for use at my home!) Would highly recommend her. Great face painting, balloon animals and some very silly magic that will have the kids in stitches! We booked her when she was in town and we wish she were here year round - the Bay Area is so, so lucky!!!
She was so great with girls and the theme of the celebration!
The make up was soft, fun and spark.
Very cheerful and happy spirit, calm and fast . She got to all 15 girls and even had time for extra lipstick for some.
She called me with her plan for the event and was very available both by email and phone.
I am so grateful to Windy for a high quality entertainment experience. She hosted a princess tea party for our 3 year old daughter. Windy arrived in an outfit all the big and little girls (and some of the gents) wished we had in our wardrobes, then proceeded to entertain two dozen girls and boys with dancing, storytelling, face-painting, tea time and balloons. I really didn't think she could do all that but Windy truly exceeded expectations. Throughout the planning pricess, she communicated cheerfully, promptly and clearly. I highly recommend Windy for your next event!
I just want to say that Wynazz Pizzazz (Windy) was wonderful as Princess Elsa. Even though it was extremely hot yesterday she stayed in character and entertained the kids. I would definitely use her again if I am in need of a Princess.
Windy was awesome and the kids loved her. Without a doubt, she was born to play Elsa :) She was a natural and the birthday girl wants another party tomorrow with Windy :). She connected on a personal level with most kids in the party. Several other parents commented that she was the best Else they'd seen in a Frozen themed party. She has great energy and improvised adeptly to a variety of situations. I'd work with her again any day! Thanks again for making this a great experience!
I hired Windy to do a super hero birthday party for a group of 5 year old girls, she was awesome! Came as Rey from Starwars and was enthusiastic, flexible, energetic, and did a great group of face paintings as well. I highly recommend her - she worked with me to plan my daughters party that turned out really fun.
Windy's Frozen Party was so much more than we thought! We booked her as Queen Elsa for my daughter Tanvi's 5th birthday. We didn't quite know what to expect, but from the moment she arrived, Windy had them all laughing and totally engaged in her show. My husband and I didn't have to do anything the whole time she was there! Even some of my guests (adults) commented on how good she was. Her face painting designs were gorgeous; our daughter looked like a real princess! We were very pleased with Windy's services and Tanvi even invited her and Anna back to her 6th birthday. To me, that speaks volumes. Thank you, thank you Windy!

POWER UP PARTIES IS THE BRAINCHILD OF AWARD-WINNING COMEDIENNE, WENDI (AKA WINDY WYNAZZ).
Like many young girls, she grew up on Princess Parties, Unicorns, and Makeovers. But over the years, the idea of the “traditional princess” seemed incongruent with the other ways our society has been evolving out of that narrative. Yet most children’s entertainment companies still find themselves stuck in this antiquated party ritual.
Wendi had a dream of starting a female-run entertainment company that empowered children to be their strongest, most powerful selves through the medium of comedy and play.
All while keeping the delight of dress-up and imagination alive.
That dream has now grown into one of the most popular, highest-rated, and most unique children’s entertainment offerings in the Bay, with a core team of highly-trained, certified children entertainment specialists who all share a similar vision of powerful, transformative fun.
Our founder, Wendi, is a San Francisco Bay Area based actor, director, body painter, arts educator, and event producer who believes that empowering our next generation to be the most powerful and fabulous creatures they can be, truly is the key to our future success.
A graduate of the San Francisco Clown Conservatory, Wendi also has a degree in Theatre Arts. She tours internationally with her solo comedy shows for grown-up kids and often can be found teaching comedy workshops.
She specializes in creating magical children’s party entertainment where she blends physical comedy, magic, and puppetry into a whirlwind of excitement, laughter, and delight.
