Take a look at the following article to find out more about corporate entertainers and wedding entertainers.
So, what do you look for to make sure that you hire the best wedding entertainer for your event? Similar to if you were looking to hire a corporate entertainer for a works do, the first thing you would take a look at is the previous customer feedback that any act you were interested in has advertised. If they have none, then beware! It means they are either a new act with perhaps little experience, or, they are not very good…! After all, an act with no references should surely raise the odd alarm bell…
Another thing to take into account is just how good the entertainers marketing material is. Chances are you will have been drawn in by this in the first place, but, it is still worth thinking about in detail. Actually spend a few minutes reading the bio – see what work they claim to have undertaken before. Have a look at the images and check out the looks on guests faces. These are the kind of things that cannot be ‘forged’ so investigate at length. Back to references as well, have a look at the kind of events that your entertainer has previously performed at. Corporate events can be quite different to weddings and so check out of you are looking more toward the hiring of a wedding entertainer or a corporate entertainer.
It is also worth taking a look on YouTube to see if you can actually find videos of the artist performing. There is nothing like seeing an act in their environment for putting your mind at rest.
One way to take a lot of worry and stress out of the whole process it book via a reputable entertainment agency. This way any entertainer you become interested in will already have been vetted by the company for quality and the kind of experience they have. They will often be able to point you in the right direction not only in the style of act best suited to your event but also the ones that best meet your budget.
Beware though, not all agencies adopt a good vetting process, so, when you speak to an agent, be sure to ask them how they add the acts, what process they use and also check if they charge the act to be included on their roster… if they do… HANG UP! Any agency that charges an act to be included is more than likely going to be not as strict on their quality control because it is in their own interest to just add as many entertainers as possible to bump up their own profits.
