Blog post   •   Aug 09, 2017 17:49 IST

Hiring entertainment acts can be really complicated as it involves judging what your guests or audience might like and also arranging for the given act. There are corporate entertainment agency that can take care of the act along with all the other arrangements for the evening. However, when the event is more personal, for example, when hiring music bands for weddings, you might want to take things in your own hands to make sure everything goes accordingly.

Here are some tips for hiring entertainment acts:

  • Provide the entertainer with proper tools. Be aware of then space and equipment you already have and what is needed by the entertainer. Even the best of artists would look bad without proper equipment and setting. Inadequate lights or sounds, poor staging can be a major setback for the performance.
  • Type of entertainment. Decide on the type of entertainment well in advance. For this you might have to consider the demographics of the audience, the kind of party and the kind of audience. For instance, if the audience is not too uptight, then you can surely hire comedians or magicians. IPad magicians are trending nowadays. Other popular choices are R&B artists, jugglers, belly dancers.
  • Contract. Make sure that you get a contract made with the entertainment agency laying down exactly what you would be getting in return for the money. It is better to convey all your expectations at this point in order to avoid later misunderstandings. Make sure that everything that is promised to you is being reflected on the contract.
