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!
