It’s the beginning of 2019 and most people are busy planning their events for the year ahead, if you’re reading this, you’re probably one of them looking to hire someone for your entertainment. Well, I’ve compiled 5 things to consider before you pick someone to compliment your big event.
Entertainment reflects the tone of the event; whether it’s a DJ for a wedding party or an instrumental band fora cultural event. Many entertainment companies brands are diverse in their skills to perform. So, if you’re having more than one event, enquire with your prospective entertainment group about whether they can adapt to more than one event. This will save on costs of having multiple performers and also streamline the entire process.
It’s always more than just about the music. Standout entertainment should be about the lighting, styling, backing tracks and everything else which lifts the performance. Make sure to enquire about the finer details, to ensure an experience which goes above and beyond the music.
3. The Personal Touch
Don’t be afraid to ask about how the entertainment you are looking to hire can provide a personal touch – this could be from amending the set list, to personalising their attire, to altering a lyric. This is what will set apart your average performers from those who are at the top of their game.
This is pretty important when it comes to all events – ensure that your investment in your entertainment choice does pay off and has your guests interacting – whether it’s filling the dance floor, or singing along. Ensure that your performers do this before booking them.
In the entertainment world, everyone seems to know everyone, and often performers can assist when it comes to planning your event – feel free to ask them about venues, catering as well as their own ideas, as they will have experienced different versions of the same event. You’ll be surprised at how much knowledge the have to offer!
