Jay Jay the Balloon Guy

Family Entertainment Specialist



I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for coming to Saint Claire's RRC in Dover to share your balloon art with our residents. You certainly have a special way with people and it showed especially when you were able to make some of the more resistant residents smile and laugh. You created not just the basic Valentine's Day balloons, but customized each creation based on the residents' interests (i.e. Starship Enterprise, teddy bears, kittens, flowers, a cross, etc.) You also provided extra balloon art for residents to give to their loved ones for Valentine's Day. Truly, it was a bright spot to their week and the reason why offering activities is so important in a long term care facility such as the RRC.

I was also impressed with how you went above and beyond to reach out to the nurses, staff members and even a few of their family members by providing them with balloon creations of their choice. It certainly was a morale booster. I wanted you to know that several of the nurses passed comments about what a good person you seem to be and how much it meant to them personally.

When we met a few months ago, you told me that you recently won on The Bank of Hollywood game show, because it was your dream to bring your balloon art creations to hospitals to cheer those in need. You certainly accomplished your goal at the RRC and for that we are very thankful. David Bahamonde will be sending you a copy of next month's newsletter which will feature pictures from the event.

Please let me know if there is any help I can provide as you begin to reach out to other hospitals with your special talents.”

“Jay Jay The Balloon Guy was the entertainment for a communion party for approximately 10 children, their families and siblings. I have never been to a function where the children, ranging from age 2-14, were so entertained. Imagine a 5 hour function where not one child was bored or even bothered a parent. The adults never knew the children were there. There was music for everyone to get their groove on. It was a good time had by all.”

“I have worked on several events with Jay Jay, and in a way that speaks for itself! You don't rebook someone who isn't super duper. My experience with Jay Jay in events that have a child-friendly focus have been amazing. His energy is tops and he really knows how to communicate with kids. That said, my experience working with Jay Jay in formal awards events that include speeches, dinner and dancing, have been equally wonderful. He is the consummate professional who makes sure you hear from him more than just at booking and at the event. He has a wide variety of services that will assure the party you plan is the party you dreamed about. In short, he's the best!”

Sherri Rase

“Hi Jay [Jay], I just wanted to say thanks, the kids had a blast (and that's what it's all about, right!) They really did have such a great time. you did an awesome job. Thanks again, next party we will definitely be calling.”

“I have been using Jay [Jay] for over 3 years now. First, at my son's 1st Holy Communion, where he entertained the kids with balloons, magic and a wonderful bubble show. When it was time for my daughter's communion, I asked her what did she want. Her answer, a DJ but could she have the balloons and a bubble show too? Well, of course, Jay is so talented he did all three and kept the kids in awe the entire time. Many of my family and friends have hired him for many different functions and all are satisfied customers! He never disappoints.”

Gisela Giro Maniotis

“The BEST balloon artist I have ever seen. He can create anything with balloons, and what works of art when they are completed! We have hired Jay for a number of different parties and our guests have hired him as well. He fascinates the kids and keeps them entertained for hours. Definitely a great value and lots of fun for the entire family. We loved him.”

Michael and Elizabeth Traina

“I would highly recommend Jay for any occasion. He is an awesome DJ, plays requests in record breaking time. He has quite a collection of songs from the past to the present. He has been known to make cd's for his regular fans and aims to make sure everyone has a good time. During the holidays his other talents are revealed as he makes the wildest balloon creations ever and anyone who wants one will get to take it home as he quickly whips it up before your eyes. Hopefully you'll get to meet Jay as he shares his many talents with you, ask about his bubble shows, I have witnessed that event as well. He is full of surprises for all ages, a great entertainer, a fan and a friend since we met in the Sportz Club in Fairfield NJ 2 years ago.”


“Everyone raved about the balloons that you made. You really are talented, and we'd love to have you come to entertain at another party again in the future!”

“My name is Emily and it was my pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with Jason Gadino...the Balloon Guy...the DJ...the professional...during three of my eleven years in the restaurant management industry. We first met and worked together for 2 great years at The Sportz Bar and Grille in Fairfield, NJ, where Jason was my regularly scheduled DJ for several nights of the week and all major social functions. Jason was always very prompt and exceptionally prepared to create an atmosphere for my patrons and staff members that would truly set the tone for the evening. He goes above and beyond with his efforts in staying up to date with new music trends. His music database is the largest I've ever seen and he is modern with his approach, so that all of the music is literally at his fingers. No more fumbling through cd's when Jason is around, because he is revolutionizing the standards we will soon look for in all disc jockeys. Through his love of music and entertainment, Jason was an amazing addition to our team and we are so proud to have witnessed his debut as the first Video DJ in the area to mix music with video on our 13ft screen at the Sportz Bar! Without Jason, the Sportz Bar would not have been as successful, as it was during my time there, or as musically influenced. Great Job to Jason!

I also had the privilege to work with Jason at The Blue Moon Mexican Cafe in Old Tappan, NJ, where Jason did balloon twisting for our weekly Sunday Brunch, Tuesday Kid's Night and other private children's parties. Jason's balloons are like pieces of artwork. They are creative, fun and really add so much joy and happiness to the party! I've seen children's faces light up in amazement when Jason hands them a balloon, but I've seen parent's faces light up even brighter, because they can truly see how detailed and complex some of these balloon creations really are. I was constantly being asked by parents for one of Jason's business cards to book their child's next big event. He really has a way with children and makes great puzzle balloons, balloons for every holiday and his character/cartoon balloons are amazing! My personal favorite is his rendition of the flower and if he has the time a full bouquet! His work really does speak for itself, along with his great tricks and bubble magic that will keep the kids entertained and happy for many parties to come. I'm so excited to have seen so many of his balloon creations in the making and as final works of art! I will always be a kid at heart thanks to Jason.”

“Hi Jay [Jay],
Just want to say what a TERRIFIC job you did last night! Everyone told me of what a wonderful time they had at the party. Much of that credit goes to you. You are the best at what you do! Thank you for ALL the balloons for the kids. They had a ball! The music was great, and the "help" with the dances was needed! You shared in making some beautiful memories for me, Kevin, my family, and friends. Thank you again sweetheart!”

Always your friend,

“Everything in a wedding or celebration is important, we can all agree to that. But when it comes to a DJ or Master of Ceremonies you want to have someone reliable and responsible: we found that in Jason. Jason was superb; he worked with us since day one until the day of the wedding. We requested songs; he had no problem locating them. We did not know the formal steps of introduction, dances and such and Jason explained everything and gave us a copy so we know every step of the process. We had some complicated names; he pronounced them as if he had been using them always. The best thing of all we had fun!!! Everyone had a great time and complemented us on the DJ choice; we owe it all to Jason.
Thanks Jason, a wedding is one of the most important steps in someone's life and you helped us make it a perfect one.”
