I have always loved throwing a great party. However, unlike many people, I enjoy planning the parties even more than I do hosting them and mixing and mingling with my guests. While I enjoy decorating and preparing food to serve my guests, my favorite aspect of a party to plan is the entertainment. I have hired DJs, live bands, and even magicians. While many people think that magicians are just for children's parties, I have a favorite magician who never fails to entertain my group of adult friends. I love party planning so much that I decided to create a blog to share my party planning tips on with a focus on party entertainment!
Planning for a large production can be a daunting task, and hiring live entertainment companies can make a world of difference. Whether it's a corporate event, charity gala, or an awards night, having a professional crew behind the scenes will ensure that the event runs smoothly, and the guests leave with wonderful memories.
A live entertainment company that specializes in large productions will have a team of professionals with experience in managing and executing complex events. They'll have access to a vast variety of performers, including singers, musicians, dancers, acrobats, and more, who can captivate and entertain the audience. This blog will outline everything you need to know about hiring a live entertainment company for your next large event.
1. Establish your needs and budget:
Before hiring a live entertainment company, you must establish your requirements and budget. Make a list of the type of performers you need, the number of performers, the duration, and the theme of the event. With this in mind, you can approach various companies with your requirements and budget and choose the one that fits the bill. It's important not to compromise on the quality of performers' talent to save money. A good live entertainment company will create a proposal that meets your needs and budget.
2. Research potential companies:
Before finalizing the deal with a live entertainment company, do your research. Look for companies that specialize in large productions and have a proven track record. Check out their website and read their reviews online. Also, make sure the company has liability insurance and their performers are licensed and insured to work.
3. Review the contract:
Before signing the agreement with a live entertainment company, ensure that you understand the terms and conditions. Review the contract carefully and confirm the details you previously discussed, such as the type of performers, number of performers, duration, and the theme of the event. Also, ensure that the contract includes a contingency plan if any performer cannot perform on the scheduled date due to an emergency.
4. Coordinate the production:
Once you've chosen the live entertainment company, it's essential to coordinate with them to ensure a smooth production. Send them a detailed timeline of the event, including the performers' schedule and the sound and lighting requirements. Have a meeting with the company to go over the timeline and ensure they understand it. The live entertainment company should have a point person who will be responsible for coordinating with the event planner and making sure everything runs smoothly.
