    Party Entertainment Options:

    Function Bands: Nothing screams great party entertainment like a party band! If you have the available space at your chosen venue, then party bands are the best choice to get your guests up and moving! Nothing beats live music and party bands are sure to deliver the most professional and memorable time!

    DJs: Want to get your guests dancing, but are tight on budget or space? DJs are the perfect choice to set the tone for your event. DJs may also offer some more versatility in regards to genre scope. While a party band might only focus on specific songs and hits, a DJ is more likely to be able to take requests and play cross genre songs at the drop of a hat.

    Singers with Backing Tracks: Another affordable option - hiring a party singer! If you still want that live music feel, but don't have the space nor budget to hire a party band, consider hiring a party singer. Usually coming equipped with backing tracks and a large repertoire, get ready to wow your guests with real vocals, while also saving on the price. A good singer will be able to take requests and interact with your audience to keep them engaged all night!

    Magicians: Make the magic happen! Consider hiring a magician for your party entertainment. Magicians bring a unique aspect to any party. From full on cabaret shows to walkabout entertainment, a magician is sure to bring a certain flair to your party that is unlike any musical entertainment.

    Circus Acts - Walkabout Entertainment: Jugglers, stilt walkers, and party clowns, oh my! There is nothing better than exciting walkabout entertainment. Depending on your venue space, you can either have isolated walkabout entertainment to go around to each guest, or you could take your party entertainment to the next level! With the right rigging you can have aerialists, and the right spatial parameters you can have fire breathers or a full cabaret show on a stage. Picture disappearing rabbits and The possibilities are endless with circus entertainment.
