“Dear Jon

What an absolutely fantastic experience! My daughter was so surprised to see a life sized rabbit waking her up, making her put on bunny ears and hop around the room! My aunt captured great photos of the event. It was a very special way to begin a birthday away from home.

Thank you so much for your help in setting this up, your enthusiasm and coming through with an amazingly talented woman who was fabulous.

You’ll definitely be hearing from us in the future!”

Charles & Marla Hermanowski



Just got a call from L.A. Apparently Elvis killed! They were so happy, and everyone got a great big laugh!

Thank you so much!

Feel free to put me on your references.

To Whom It May Concern;

About three weeks ago I hired a singing gorilla to deliver my resume to GoGorilla Media. I just wanted to say thank you so much. I am now sitting at my desk at my new job with GoGorilla. I am told over and over again what a great job your performer did. I am also told it is the main reason I got the job.

So in short… Thank you. You guys are amazing!

Sincerely, Damien

Your singing Bruce Springsteen was terrific. I know I didn’t give you much
flexibility with scheduling but he came through and did a terrific job.
Everyone enjoyed hearing Born in the USA, especially Kevin Monahan.

Thanks again.


Hi Jon,

How are you? I just wanted to relay to you the RAVES that have been coming back to me. Captain Kinniers wife called me as well as Pat himself on the wonderful job mini Popeye did! I was told Pat hadn’t laughed and smiled like that in awhile. They said that not only was Popeye a great performer, he was a really cool guy.

Thank you so much again!
