Important things to keep in mind when booking your live entertainment

Regardless of the type of event you are planning, there are 2 very important things to keep in mind; yourself and your guests. When you are choosing your entertainment, it’s no different. With all the different groups and performers out there, it could be real difficult at times to even know where to begin. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when choosing your live entertainment at your next event.


  • Your Style: Start by envisioning the overall vibe of your event. The style of music or entertainment you choose sets the tone of your day and your preference will determine the type of band, DJ, dancers or performer you choose. This is YOUR event and it should be up to your own standards.


  • Know your options: Just like anything else in life, doing a little research before acting is always a great idea. Think about the event you are booking the act for and consider if they are a fit. Ask for a consultation, watch videos or even see if you can see them perform live. At Bongo & B, we are more than happy to work with you and make sure you get the exact act you are looking for.


  • Make your requests clear: It is always a good idea for all parties involved to know exactly what is expected. Want to hear specific songs? Want the dancers to do something special? Want to have the lights on you during your first dance? All of this should be communicated to the parties involved to ensure a smooth evening.


  • Itinerary: Your itinerary is the backbone to your event. Make sure that the timing and duration of the act is well communicated to everyone so that there are no surprises. It is also essential that contact information is exchanged to all parties in case of any delays or emergencies.


Have Fun: If the people throwing the party aren’t enjoying themselves, how can you expect the guests to? Remember that this is still your party and guests want to have fun with you! As long as you are prepared, you should not have any surprises. So enjoy and let the professionals take over!
