Not a Barbershop Quartet, we ordered a singing Telegram. Although a small celebration, this great singer made our co-workr's retirement party a blast. We were planning for fun, but got the unexpected. The woman was nicely masked in her chicken costume, but worked it out, we heard her clearly. The owner from there was super responsive, singing the songs to us over the phone, answering our questions/ concerns, prior to our party. The chicken singing telegram was more than funny, it included a surprising magic trick! Will reserve for an office event again!

Tasteful, kind, harmless and very funny.
I booked this company to appear as Donald Trump for my boss's 60th birthday party in Morris, IL.
They contacted me promptly and asked how they could tailor this performance based on personal information about our business and my boss. Done in a Donald Trump mask and double breasted blue suit, I was surprised how much the singer looked like the President. Her songs were hilarious, and the impersonation was a huge hit!

Chicago sure knows how to do it up on the weekend before St Patrick's Day. We threw our annual St. Patrick's "Wearing O' The Green party the Sunday before the parade. We hired this magical Leprechaun from this place and from the moment we answered the door, she had a crazy energy unlike anything I've ever seen before. All of our friends and their kids were donning green outfits and here comes this nutty Irish magician making us laugh and twisting balloon shamrocks for all of the children. We can't wait to see what the singing Irish Washerwoman/ Face Painter will do this year.

"How Raven Became The Creator God In The Native American Pantheon."
An interpretation in Magical illusion ~ by Clare T Ashley, "The Magic Of The Nightingale"
"Humankind has not woven the web of life, No. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect. We are a part of the earth and it is part of us." Chief Seattle. ~ Born October 26, 1959, the child, Clare T Ashley was sure she'd be a star. So it was a bitter irony to find I was an impoverished single mom mom working as a waitress and bartender in 1983. That winter, a guy we called "Yukon Joe" gave me my first break into entertainment. I went to work as a singing telegram messenger for Sargeant Yukon Singing Telegrams. I had two skills at the time: I could sing and I could play the Autoharp; both skills served me well dressing up and performing singing telegrams. Joe was big on work and low on pay.
It was not surprising that a year later, at Christmas, Joe called me up and said: "I got a clown show for you." Stunned and unsure of myself, I replied: "Joe, what do I do?" He said come over to the office and pick up a clown suit, some make-up and a wig. You can stroll and play the Auto harp, it will be easy. It was! Clowning opened many doors for me. I met clowns at every gig. As a group clowns are hugely warm-hearted and helpful. Rarely do you meet a clown who is secretive or full of envy; almost all the clowns I've known are anxious to share their skills and happy to help a young person grow. So, little by little, bit by bit, I learned to face paint, to twist balloon animals and the thing that was to change the course of history, my history anyway: MAGIC! I decided to learn the skills that would allow me to become "Rainbow The Magical Clown."
