Whichever type of corporate event you get involved with, it’s usual that live entertainment will play a major part.

Whether the event consists of speciality acts or live bands rocking out hits from the last few decades, it is corporate entertainment that truly moves your function to the next level.

Therefore, as someone who’s organising an event, booking the right corporate entertainment or the right live band for your specific audience – is a big responsibility.

The specific type of corporate entertainment will always vary from group to group and event to event. In fact, it will change from person to person, meaning that whilst it is important you hire a band in general for your corporate event, it’s unlikely to be to every single person’s taste. In order make the most appropriate selection it is advised that you discuss the various different aspects of your planned event with Bespoke Entertainment agents this way we can make an informed recommendation.

wshutterstock_1729652

Glenn is of Scottish heritage and will be getting married in a kilt and full traditional dress, Glenn also has several members of his family flying over from Scotland for the big day.

Tracy and Glenn are having a full church service and after many discussions regarding their wedding entertainment have decided they would like a bagpiper playing as the guests arrive and congregate prior to entering the church in Brisbane. There are between 90 and 100 guests, the age range is predominantly between 20 and 55. Their wedding reception party was to be held in a fairly small room to the side of the main bar area at their reception venue. They had decided they would like a live band to play after the guests had finished the meal; however there was only a small floor area designated for wedding entertainment and the venue had been informed by the council that they had to comply with a 96 decibel volume restriction.

Key Facts

Tracey and Glenn would like a bagpiper to play as guests arrive

They would also like a live band to play after the main meal.

There is only a small floor area designated for a band to set up

There is currently a 96 decibel sound restriction level being applied to the venue

Guests age range between 20 and 55.

Recommendation

Our recommended bagpiper was booked for Tracey and Glenn’s big day, and also played after the service as the guests left the church and departed for the reception venue.

In addition to the piper Bespoke Entertainment agents booked a superb three piece live band, the trio have a compact set up which upon examination of the dimensions would fit into the small designated area for music. The trio have confirmed they can use an electronic drum kit therefore the volume can be directly adjusted via the mixing desk; they also have vast experience playing at low volume levels and in particular, to audiences within this age range.

Wedding Entertainment Case Study – Katie and Patrick

bespoke2

Katie had always dreamed of having a fairy tale wedding, being engaged for two years prior to her big day, Katie had spent almost every week talking about and planning some aspect of her wedding day. Now it was time for her wedding entertainment!

Katie had a vintage Rolls Royce to take her from the church service to a well know luxury 5 star hotel on the Gold Coast where the reception was held. There were to be a total of 120 guests and the majority would be aged between 25 and 55 years old. Most of the photographs were to be taken in the grounds of the hotel. While the photographer was busy with the bride and groom; the guests would be assembled in the lobby bar area of the hotel, prior to entering the dining room. Katie and Patrick have a wide taste in music from classical right through to, and including all genres of rock music. Katie wanted to create a memorable, classy and elegant day and was open to all wedding music suggestions.

Key Facts

  • Katie’s desire for a classy and elegant “fairy tale” wedding
  • 120 guests, majority age range between 25 and 55 years of age
  • The guests would be in the lobby bar prior to entering the dining room while the photographer was busy with Katie and Patrick.
  • Wide taste in music from classical through to all genres of rock music.

Recommendation

To fit in with Katie’s requirement for a classy and elegant “fairy tale “wedding, Bespoke Entertainment agents put together a package consisting of 3 elements. Initially a Harpist was installed to play quietly at the rear of the Gold Coast church as the guests slowly flowed in, found their seats and waited for the arrival of the bride. The Harpist also played appropriate mellow wedding music for a second time while Katie and Patrick moved into the side room of the church to sign the marriage register while the guests were waiting.

Secondly upon arrival at the hotel and reception venue a string quartet was installed and played gentle classical melodies in the lobby bar while the guests enjoyed their first couple of drinks of the day, during this time Katie and Patrick were busy with the photographer.

Finally once the meal and speeches were out of the way, a smart, stylish and high- energy ‘party rock’ live band were booked. They played from a popular contemporary set list that suited the age range of the guests perfectly.

Harpist – $350

String Quartet – $1,000

Wedding Entertainment Case Study – Michelle and Phil

bespoke1

Michelle & Phil

Michelle and Phil had organised a short and informal wedding service, with the majority of their guests arriving in the evening for the reception party. The format of the party was a three course meal, speeches, cutting of the cake followed by the bridal waltz/first dance.

The reception party was held in a large ballroom on the Gold Coast with 155 guests and a variation in age, ranging from teenagers to elderly relatives aged 70 years and over. Although Michelle, along with her Mum Gabriel, had organised almost every other aspect of the wedding, they were unsure as to what type of live band or wedding music would be most suitable for them, especially as neither of the family where particularly musical. Once the formalities were finished they wanted all their guests to be able to relax and dance the evening away, between the hours of 8.00pm and 12.00 midnight.

Key Facts

  • Size of the ballroom, ample P.A. wattage required, acoustics maybe affected
  • Large variation in age range of the guests
  • Requirement for dancing between times of 8.00pm and 12.00 midnight
  • No particular type of music stated as preferable due to Michelle, Phil or Gabriel not being particularly musical.

Recommendation

The wedding band recommended by Bespoke Entertainment agents were selected due to their vast experience with weddings of this nature, their sound system and lighting rig where of sufficient power and quality to accommodate a ballroom of this size. The live band in question also has a very large repertoire, covering songs from the 60’s right through to modern day chart music, suiting the wide age range of Michelle and Phil’s guests. The selected wedding band have the ability to change their song choice impromptu, therefore keeping the dance floor busy at all times.

In addition to the above, the chosen live band also provided a suitable selection of dance tracks played during their two breaks, thus meeting the requirement for dancing between the times of 8.00pm and 12.00 midnight.

Selected live band $1,400

Total cost $1,400
