Are you looking for entertainment for your next private party? Hiring the right act for any event entertainment is just an important a detail as food, drinks and the guest list.
Different Types of Party Entertainers
You may want to have a caricature artist DJ, or singer compliment a magician at your event. You can even set up a production show with amazing variety acts depending on your event and budget. An international company will plan a different style or event entertainment than a house party so be sure your entertainer can specify the right style to fit your needs.
When you call an entertainment agency or performer for your event it is important to ask as many questions as possible ahead of hiring an entertainer for your party. Here are a few questions you want to ask before booking an entertainer for your next party:
- How much space is required for your show or performance?
- Does your show require any special equipment? (i.e. stages, sound systems, etc.)
- How long are your shows or performances?
- At what time do you start the entertainment portion?
- Is there a deposit required ahead of booking? If so, how much?
- How soon advance do I need to book my date?
- Is there a cancellation policy?
- Is the show kid friendly?
- Are you able to customize the show or performance?
Cost of Party Entertainment
Be prepared to have a larger budget for a well-established entertainer for your event. The value of your performer as event entertainment is so important to making your event a great success.The type of event and venue might have an impact on your total entertainment cost. For example, the price of a large corporate event may vary from that of a smaller, private party. Similarly, the duration of an event would also impact the total cost as well. Some entertainers can tailor the show for your event, while others may not.
Final Tips for Hiring an Entertainer
Assuming you have done your homework in providing your entertainer or booking agency with details, there are still a few things you can do to ensure you have found the perfect fit for your party or event. I highly recommend reading online reviews of the entertainer or performer before booking. This will allow you to hear what others have to say and verify the performer’s credentials and reputation to help ensure your time and money is well spent. Lastly, watching any videos of the performer is a good way to see what their show or performance is like before booking.
