Thinking about corporate entertainment means defining the entertainment style you need:
- Will there be dancing?
- Should entertainers visit the tables?
- Are people attending in the same general age group?
- Will there be a variety of music styles?
- Is there a common factor within those attending?
Decisions about who will entertain are dependent upon who is being entertained. Before you can select a band, cover group, music theme, or entertainer for your event, you really need to consider the dynamic of your corporate employees.
Who will be entertained at your corporate event?
While older audiences may prefer a jazz band, or big band era theme, a younger audience may be pleasantly surprised by the value of traditional selections. Is there a common denominator that can be applied to your group, the music entertainment, and the specific fundamentals of corporate entertainment?
A popular solution for a varied audience is a big band era band or swing band with tribute artists who mingle among the employees for pictures, and a few on-spot performances. Perhaps your executive team would be impressed with Marilyn Monroe showing up to sing and dance? Or your tech team might be more impressed with Taylor Swift? By knowing the audience, you’ll know exactly the right entertainers to bring in for your team building corporate event.
Who is planning your corporate entertainment?
Having access to an entertainment event planner offers you a different sort of support, more than just a planner to decide on the menu. Your corporate bands appearance will be choreographed by a planner who understands all the options for musical entertainment. The best cover bands for your corporate event may not be the big band. Often, a selection of smaller entertainment options may be more effective.
No matter what music you choose, the objective of creating a memorable – read unforgettable – corporate event should include atmosphere, theme, and how well branded the event is. Every event should be well branded with the corporate feel your employees should be taking away from the overall event.
