When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade!Bongo & B
Just when we thought that everything was starting to reopen in Ontario, life threw us another curve ball. With the rise of the Omicron variant, the province saw itself pause yet again. This time however, things were a bit different. Putting the province on pause meant that many weddings and corporate events were forced to act accordingly. This was yet another devastating blow to the entertainment industry. Just when we began thinking the worst, something strange happened. Believe it or not, this led us to us having one our busiest months ever! We started the month with terrible news that put us in a scare, but it quickly turned around and became positive. What changed you might ask? Keep reading because this is where things get interesting.
With closures beginning right around the start of the holiday season, many people were left scrambling to think of creative ways to host their respective events online. This included many corporate clients who usually throw large events to show appreciation to their employees for working hard all year. With a quick consultation, planners quickly learned that we, at Bongo & B, are happy to offer video services as well as live performers. In the last few years, we have had the honour of having our talent be seen by many people all around Canada and different parts of the world by various corporate clients. This just goes to show that Bongo & B can even rock the house online! This really helped corporate companies out of a tough jam, but what about all the couples who were looking to get married?
Many people have been waiting for months, if not years, to get married at this point in the pandemic. With every passing year, more couples look to tie the knot which creates a huge backlog in weddings and events. In the last month, we are blessed to say our phones have been ringing off the hook with eager couples looking to create the most magical evening possible. We have even been approached by many corporate clients as well who are looking towards having even more live entertainment at their upcoming events to make up for not being able to host any holiday parties for the last few years. This is to say that now is the perfect time to book that artist or live performance you wanted because things may be all booked up very soon.
Many couples as well as event planners noticed that even though they may not be able to book the venue they wanted or invite as many people as they had hoped, the WOW factor can still be delivered with live entertainment. We invite you all to book a consultation with us in advance to see how we can help make your day as magical as possible. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who continue to call and book Bongo & B throughout the last few years. Although the pandemic has separated us for the last while, we will be reunited on the dance floor soon. Stay safe, happy and healthy!
