I really, really liked Merman from the first time I spoke with him on the phone. He contacted me back promptly and we had a fun conversation planning the details of my daughters 8 year old birthday party. I felt fully confident that Merman would deliver all his promises, which included entertaining not only the kids but the adults.. he even went so far as to tell me not to worry about anything, including the iffy weather at an outdoor party.. that he had it all under control and all would be well. He even told me he would be there for any other need, such as a last minute pick up from a store that I may have not had time for. And he came through on it all!!!!!
