There are different types of private parties, and each one may require a different variety of entertainment. For example, you would not hire the same entertainment services for a child’s birthday party as you would for a bachelor party. At least I would hope you would not. Below are five different types of private party entertainment with explanations for what type of party the entertainment services would be appropriate for. I hope this helps you with your party planning.
1. Live Music
A live band is one of the most popular options for private party entertainment. Music is essential for most private parties, and there is no type of party that live music is not appropriate for. Of course, you may consider different types of live music depending on the party. For example, if you are hosting a child’s birthday party, then you may want to look for a live musician who specializes in children’s’ music. If you are planning a wedding, then a band that can play pretty much anything is best.
2. A Party DJ
A party DJ is another great option for music needs for a private event. A DJ usually has more flexibility than a band or a solo performer because if they have the track, then they can play it. Just like bands and performers, there are different types of DJs, so make sure that you hire the right kind. You do not want a DJ, who usually performs at nightclubs to play at your relaxing Luau.
3. A Clown
A clown is the classic private party entertainment for a child’s birthday. There are not too many other occasions for which you will want to hire a clown, though.
4. A Comedian
A comedian is an interesting option for private party entertainment. A comedian is not typically one of the options for entertainment that people think of first, but they can add a lot to an adult party. Think about hiring a comedian for a corporate conference or a business luncheon. Comedians can make these somewhat dull events a little more fun and memorable.
5. A Dance Team
The first time I saw a dance team at an event was at a Bar Mitzvah. I had never even really thought about hiring dancers for an event like this before, but it made a lot of sense. A lot of the guests at a Bar Mitzvah are a little more self-conscious when it comes to dancing. Think about how you felt when you were 13. Dancing was probably not your favorite activity. Luckily, the boy’s parents had hired dancers to get the party going a little bit. Once the dancers started on the dance floor, other people were happy to join in. The dancers also helped some of the uncomfortable dancers by teaching them some basic dance moves.
