Helpful tips on planning a corporate party!

Well, on the entertainment side of things, there are a LOT of things to check into BEFORE booking your entertainment. The first is checking into the company you will be booking with. You should book with the company YOU feel most comfortable with. If you have any questions, make sure you are getting answers! Often times people beat around the bush and don't provide you with adequate answers. Get what YOU want! You should be ecstatic when you book your entertainment! It's one of the most important parts of this function! The nice thing about corporate functions is that they are different, usually. I love how most of our corporate clients think outside the box, maybe with a little bit of our help too. :0)

Book the DJ, for sure, they are your "Go to guy", they hold it down, keep everything running smoothly, handle all announcements (if needed), and play great music, BUT try booking a BAND for the night as well, usually corporate clients have the budget to WOW their guests! A Band and DJ Package is great because they can cater to ALL of your guests and make sure everyone is enjoying themselves! Also, try something different before the band starts, book a COMEDIAN for an hour to help everyone let loose or a MAGICIAN to intrigue your guests!

There are so many options but corporate parties are PERFECT for these different ideas. Also, make sure that you have THE WHOLE NIGHT covered, this is another perk of having your DJ, they will handle your cocktail music, dinner music, etc. for the entire night! Also, if you wish to have live musicians for cocktails and dinner, why not book a Jazz Trio for a few hours! One thing to keep in mind as well, you probably don't want to have an open mic. Alcohol + Coworkers + Open Mic. is not a very good mix, and could possibly cause trouble. It's usually better to let the DJ handle any announcements or have speeches prepared. ;0)

The options are endless and a good entertainment company can help you achieve your goals!
