A party doesn’t truly take off until the entertainment is well under way. You can have the best food and drink available but it can all fall flat without someone or something to keep your guests interested.
Party entertainment provides a focal point for guests to gather around, something for them to chat about, and sometimes something for them to partake in.
When putting together your next big bash, consider these forms of entertainment to get the crowd going.
A Little Laughter Goes A Long Way
For a unique entertainment option consider hiring a comedian to liven up your party. We forge connections with others through laughter, so if this is a soiree where some people are strangers to one another this can be a great way to get them talking.
Folks like Tony Baker and Jasmine Ellis are great for private events and can work with the type of audience you have.
You can hire a comedian who interacts with the audience or one who simply stands on stage and talks. There is physical comedy, comedy that centers around things like the workplace or being a parent, and specialized comedians who deal in things like impressions or puppets.
Liven It Up With Music
One of the first things people think of when it comes to a party is music. This can be achieved in many ways: a DJ, a band, or even hooking your phone or computer up to speakers and playing pre-made playlists.
Nothing quite immerses people in the moment like a live music act. These talented performers give the crowd something to watch, and some even make sure to interact with guests and get them involved.
They can fulfill song requests, urging people out onto the dance floor. They may venture into the crowd to dance or provide emcee services for a structured event – live music acts are versatile and worth the investment.
You can pick a band that caters to a specific genre or plays a breadth of hits. You may also want to consider a tribute band, which strives to emulate a popular act, or a tribute band, which puts its own spin on a music group’s songs.
Buy A Booth
One of the most popular entertainment options seen at many weddings is the photo booth. It’s a self-sufficient way to keep guests entertained, and it sends them home with a souvenir.
You can add in silly props and backdrops for the guests to play with. Most have an option to make multiple copies of one photo so that those hosting the party can create a scrapbook of memories from the night.
Magicians aren’t just for kid’s parties. There are many magically-charged acts that cater to younger and older crowds.
An illusionist can draw in your guests, often using them as part of your act. They will leave an impression that lasts long after they take the stage, and they tend to be on the cheaper side in terms of pricing out entertainment, so you won’t break the bank.
