Planning party entertainment

I love a good party! It’s one of the best things to do in life, where you can dance all day and night, eat lots of scrummy food and feel on top of the world!

When it comes to entertaining guests, creating that all important WOW factor is the key to success. As a female saxophone player, I get invited to play at so many parties, weddings and clubs – bringing laughter, joy and music to any event! So, it’s safe to say that partying is in my DNA.

If you’re hosting an event, but are unsure what to do for party entertainment, here are just a few ideas and things to bear in mind!

First off, what is it for?

A wedding, birthday or anniversary is very family and friends orientated. So, being able to let loose and have fun is what it’s all about!

Corporate events and exhibitions usually involve team building exercises, networking or meeting with clients and you want to create a great first impression!

Next, is there a theme?

Are you thinking of retro? Western? Casino? Fancy dress? Gatsby? There’s so many to crazy party themes out there to choose from!

 

So, now that you’ve have thought these through, its time to think about what kind of party entertainment you’ll have!

Performers

The number 1 spot has got to be performers! From dancers, circus acts, acrobats, comedian, magicians and of course musicians, no one can dazzle and energize the crowd with spectacular feats of entertainment!

I love hearing the crowd roar in excitement when the music begins to play, especially when I join other amazing artists, live bands and DJs in an effort to make the place pop and shine with my light-up sax too!

Artistic entertainment

Feeling artsy? Hire a caricaturist to make silly portraits of your guests as a souvenir for them to take home and place on the wall. Or, why not paint yourself by hiring a face painter!

Interactive

Instead of watching, be part of the entertainment! With advances in technology, VR is a huge hit with gaming and would make any corporate training or exercise WAY more interesting!

Photobooths will look great on Instagram, and a complementary chocolate fountain or cocktail bar will go down a treat. If you’re one for puzzles, organising a mystery solving case (think Cluedo) or a scavenger hunt is a sure-fire way to get everyone’s detective caps on!

 

If looking for out of the box party entertainment for your next event, then why not hire Girl on Sax or the power girl band Girls That Mix by calling 07740 192973 or email me at may@girlonsax.co.uk  Check out my website for more information.
