A Rousing Success
Mystery and Spy Parties were a rousing success at our event! We had requested a specific theme involving DNA and Eric was more than accommodating, incorporating everything we needed into our Mystery! He had all the tools to get everyone engaged, involved, competing, laughing, interacting, and acting! Fun was had by all - and boy, were we stumped on many occasions! I would highly recommend Eric!

A Great Mystery Dinner and Scavenger Hunt
It was a great time!! I hired Zowie Entertainment to lead a mystery dinner and scavenger hunt following dinner for our adolescent hematology/oncology summer camp. The teens loved solving the mystery and really enjoyed the competition of completing the scavenger hunt. They ran from clue to clue to try to be the first group to complete the hunt.
Eric led this event for our group. He was enthusiastic and energetic. I recommend using Zowie Entertainment for any group event.

It Was My Favorite and Most Memorable Team Day Yet
What a night! We had Asheville Party host a dinner mystery for our team building event, and it was my favorite and most memorable team day yet. The storyline, delivery and improv was spot on... highly recommended!

Everyone Had So Much Fun In The Murder Mystery Party
Zeta Tau Alpha at Winthrop University had a fantastic experience with Zowie Entertainment. Everyone had so much fun in the murder mystery party, and Eric was willing to work with us in any way that we needed. He made my job so much easier because I knew that my sisters were having fun and I even got to sit back and participate in the mystery myself!

I Was Thrilled
Eric hosted a Mystery Party for a pre-wedding get together for my sister, her fiancee, and friends. We had such a great time.
We chose to do one of the pre-written mysteries, and Eric customized it to our setting. I was thrilled when the participants got into their characters, bringing with them props and costumes. Eric made this easy, by preparing the invites describing each character for each participant. The game was well organized, and Eric kept the mystery solving moving with questions, answers, and hints. He set the mood with props and music, transforming our rental house into the scene of the mystery.
I highly recommend Eric for a party. He is easy to work with, communicates effectively, and follows up. Thanks, Eric, for making our girls and guys weekend a success!

Everyone Loved It!
What a guy - we had 240 people for my sorority function and this guy nailed it. Not only did he entertain our guests with his wonderfully thought out script, but he continued the night allowing everyone to dance to all of their favorite songs. With that many college students excited to be at the event, he showed an immense amount of patience while trying to get the mystery started. Everyone loved it! Eric - it was great working with you! Such a wonderful person and a great party idea!

Such a Fun, Unique Event
Thank you so much for making our birthday celebration so special and memorable. The creative story line, the enthusiasm, the interaction with guests, all far exceeded my expectations. I’m still getting emails from our friends over a week later thanking us for putting on such a fun, unique event.
You truly did an amazing job. I will gladly recommend you to anyone considering hosting such an event. Who knows, maybe we’ll even do it again!

Eric Ran a Great Murder Mystery
We hired Eric to run a Murder Mystery for our annual staff retreat (approximately 80 people). He tailored the story line to our field of work, was easy to work / coordinate with in setting up the event, and ran a great murder mystery the day of! We would definitely consider hiring him again should the opportunity arise.

The Mini-Movie is the Icing on the Birthday Cake
When Max came up with a Clone Wars theme for his party, I could find plates and cups easily enough but got stuck at the party entertainment itself for ages. When I saw Eric’s website, I knew we had our little problem solved.
It’s been great – Eric was very ‘can do’, flexible enough to take on board our ‘movie plot’ and made the actual running of the party itself incredibly smooth as well. We actually had reinforcements to help organize the predicted chaos at the party, but very happily, we were all totally redundant and we got to sit back and enjoy watching it all play out instead!
Of course, the mini-movie itself is the icing on the birthday cake, so to speak – it makes for fun watching now but I have this feeling that years from now we’ll be going back to it for our laughs too! We’ve had so many compliments on such a different party we’re thinking ahead already, so see you next year Eric!

Games and Improv
A HUGE SUCCESS!
We held a Client Appreciation Event and hired Eric as our entertainment. Eric maintained communication with us throughout the whole process leading up to the event always willing to answer any questions or concerns we had. The day of the event he was prompt and on time and a HUGE SUCCESS!
Eric was the host for our Trivia Game show which he tailored specifically for our clients age group. Our clients (approx. 80 - ages ranging from 60-80) were thrilled and had nothing but positive things to say about the Game Show experience! It was a huge success and we will definitely be using Eric's service's again in the future!

He Always Made the Nights a Wonderful Success
He had almost nothing to work with except the people, a couple of boxes of costumes and props, negligible rehearsal time, and his own creative wits, and he always made the nights a wonderful success for the campers. (all ages)

5 Gold Stars Aren’t Enough
Eric and Zowie Entertainment are an absolute joy to work with!! Throwing a party for 200+ people wearing costumes (Halloween) can be challenging, not to mention stressful, hectic, and nightmarish; but Eric shows up beyond prepared and just makes everything flow!
5 gold stars aren't enough....more like he deserves 20! If you are looking for someone to provide you with the ability to actually sit down and enjoy your own party, look no further than Zowie Entertainment!!!

What a Joy to Work With an Entertainer Like Eric
Eric is a talented musician with a great singing voice. He somehow manages to be supremely laid back and easygoing while at the same time being incredibly organized and hyper alert to every nuance in the flow of the party.
What a joy to work with an entertainer like that–although there is not really any “work” involved, since Eric pretty much takes care of everything and the host is free to enjoy the wonderful party mood he creates.
Eric did live entertaining, karaoke, DJ and dance lighting for us–all top notch. He can shift on a dime between relating flawlessly with adolescents and relating with adults. Highly recommended!
Mark G. Darien, CT April 2, 2015
You Will Definitely Be My Choice for the Closing Act
I am glad you had a good time. You are definitely invited back next year. You will definitely be my choice for the closing act. The DJ we had there that night was Kacey Morabito from the Kacey and Mike show in the mornings on WHUD. She thought you were outstanding.

Entertainment For My 50th Wedding Anniversary
When I first approached Eric about the possibility of providing some sort of entertainment for my 50th wedding anniversary, he was more than eager to take on the task. I had some vague ideas but he came up with a number of suggestions, things that hadn’t occurred to me.
This was to be an outside event, and he knew how to tailor the sound and lighting to fully complement the setting. I knew that I wanted “vintage” music, and he had the resources to provide all the oldies I could have wanted. Eric is a pleasure to work with, creative and imaginative.
Lois B. Round Hill, VA January 26, 2015
The Perfect Entertainment for a Fundraiser
The Perfect Entertainment for a Fundraiser. I hired Eric for a luau fundraising event at a local restaurant. He was incredibly friendly, professional and his musical talents were perfection!
He was on time for every meeting and went out of his way to make things easy for me Eric had our crowd up on their feet dancing and singing–even hula hooping! He played the guitar and sang early in the evening, and switched to DJ later on. Thanks Eric, for making our event a huge success.

We had an awesome time and will definitely be coming back to Asheville Party in the future!

An EXTENSIVE Karaoke list
Eric was wonderful! I hired him for my husband’s 40th birthday party to sing and run karaoke. He has a wonderful singing voice and plays guitar well too. He has an EXTENSIVE Karaoke list and the equipment was good. Eric was upbeat but not at all “in your face.” He was flexible, polite and fun. I would absolutely recommend him.

His Equipment Is Top Notch
Habitat for Humanity held it's first statewide conference and Eric entertained us for our "Corn Hole and Karaoke" night and did a FANTASTIC job! He is skilled at reading the crowd and matching up the music to the audience.
When the crowd started to thin down, instead of asking if he could start packing up, he kept right on going and stayed as entertaining for 5 as he did for 50! His attitude was up beat and he was fun to be with! His equipment is top notch and he was very attentive to all details and presented with professionalism mixed with FUN! He came early and stayed late and was great to work with!
Christine O. President, Habitat for Humanity NC January 26, 2015
You Went Above and Beyond
You went above and beyond ensuring everyone got some of their songs on the playlist and I so appreciate that. They all noticed and were excited when it was one of “theirs”. That was a nice touch and I know it took effort on your part to coordinate. Thank you so much! We had fun. Finally got them out there for Karaoke and it paid off. I think everyone had a blast.
Jodi D. Montreat, NC January 2, 2015
He Is Always a Huge Hit and Gets the Crowd Involved
Eric has helped us at Biltmore Forest Country Club on numerous occasions – for adult cocktail parties, pool parties, children’s events, and most recently our employee holiday party. He is always a huge hit and gets the crowd involved.
His Karaoke is always a ton of fun, and his “box of fun” will liven up the party. Eric is very easy to work with, he is interactive during the party, and always willing to go the extra mile. I highly recommend him for any event.

Thank you so much. We had so much fun. You did a fantastic job. I loved that you took our suggestions for both Karaoke and DJ songs while inserting your selections (which were perfect) based on the genres we requested.
You played a good mix of music that got everyone on the dance floor from disco to “droppin it like its hot”. This is the first time I actually enjoyed Karaoke! We will definitely hire you again for our next event.
