80th Birthday Surprise Singers

Highland Park, Illinois

80th Birthday Surprise Entertainment

This past weekend, we had the pleasure to sing at the Highland Park Country Club in Highland Park, Illinois.  Gerald, who was celebrating his 80th birthday, had a couple of surprise singers (us) posing as waiters and entertaining family and guests, alike.

This particular event had our “1+1 Show”- 1 Guy and 1 Girl singing classic hits from several generations that included, Fly Me To The MoonThe Lady is a Tramp, and more modern songs like Not for the Life of Me from Thoroughly Modern Millie.

If You’re Celebrating your 80th Birthday

As of today, 80 year olds are considered “The Silent Generation“.  But, in this case, this group was hardly “silent”.  A great bunch of people that were very generous with their kind words and open hearts.

The surprise that no one know about

We enjoy singing at small parties.  Everyone is usually there to celebrate something.  Even though we’re a surprise, we know that we’ll have fun because of that.  Bringing levity and great music to parties is usually a win-win for everyone.  And, this was no

different.  The minute we started singing, guests began singing along to the familiar songs.  A great byproduct of our live shows!

Music speaks to everyone

There is no surprise that music has no barriers.  People respond to singing.

See how this afternoon buffet turned out with The Amazing Waiters.

Here are some highlights of our live surprise performance for this 80th Birthday Party.

Surprise Waiters for Six Hundred

Thank you, Alex!  I’ll take Surprise Waiters for 600…

It this even possible?  Can three performers surprise and entertain six hundred unsuspecting guests effectively?  Why yes.  Of course, we can!  And that’s what our surprise waiters did recently in the awesome city of Indianapolis, Indiana for a great group of independent cable visionaries that were convening on the city for brainstorming and networking sessions.

As we do, when a client decides to have The Amazing Waiters for their event, large or small, we begin gathering information about their party.  Everything from time lines to possible themes and even special VIPs or guests that may be attendance.  Once we have all necessary information, we begin tossing ideas back and forth with the client regarding how and where the special show will happen during the event.  During this phase, we discovered something interesting-something that took us back to our roots…when we entertained guests in Europe many moons ago…

SOUP COURSE PRESENTATION

Our clients are awesome.  We love it when they have crazy or unorthodox ideas about their event.  We love it when they like to integrate our surprise shows within these fun ideas.  And voila!  This was one of those moments.  Our client wanted to introduce the first course (the soup course) with a parade of waiters marching out, single file and serving the guests.  Our client wanted to know if we, as waiters could perform our surprise show during this time.  And of course, this course was PERFECT because, as mentioned earlier, we used to do this very thing as the original singing waiters act in Europe and it was high time we dusted off one of our signature songs that would be singularly appropriate for this presentation.  Be Our Guest from “Beauty and the Beast”.  We would sing the song while the parade of service staff entered the room with the soup.  PERFECT!

Surprise Waiters can get your attention

It’s hard to get 600 people to stop talking…especially when it’s a lowly waiter at a microphone on a large stage…

But that’s why our client hired us-we specialize in how to get people’s attention.  James, our general manager (and former singer with The Los Angeles Opera), who himself has performed over a thousand singing waiters shows, took 600 boisterous entrepreneurs on a musical journey, while the hotel wait staff seamlessly served the enthusiastic guests.  The presentation ending with a thunderous standing ovation (OK, the end of the song DID include two guys doing the song’s signature kick line).

Just when you think you’ve seen it all…

Our third waiter, a fabulous Soprano, surprises both men with the Broadway hit, “Don’t Rain On My Parade” from the musical Funny Girl, made famous by Barbara Streisand.  Things got crazy from there.  But, we won’t divulge that information as what happens in Indianapolis STAYS in Indianapolis!  Needless to say, our three amazing surprise waiters tirelessly worked the room and hopefully left no one feeling lonely (even in a room of 600 people)!

Here’s a snippet of the sound check.

Thanks for a fabulous time!
