Amazing Singing Waiter Holiday Show in Rolling Hills, California


Singing to an unsuspecting luncheon guest in los angeles

The guys love singing to the ladies.

The Amazing Waiters brought in the Holiday Season with some personally served surprise entertainment for a lovely group of ladies at their Country Club Holiday Luncheon in Rolling Hills, California this past weekend.

Posing as Waiters, the guys infiltrated the on-site staff and proceeded to transform from waiters to entertainers singing a mix of Christmas Classics, Rat Pack and Broadway Favorites intertwined with a specially-written script.  The ladies were completely surprised!

“It was great to get back to one of our favorite clients on the Peninsula here in LA”, stated Singing Waiter, James. “I really don’t think they were seeing a show until our third waiter made his grand entrance.  By then, we were singing our 4th or 5th song…It was a fun time!”.

No Hassle Sound Equipment

The club wanted the Amazing Waiter special sound option which made it very easy for them.  We had the peace of mind of having our own sound system and they were relieved they didn’t have to coordinate a third party for our needs.

See The Amazing Waiters Video to see some ideas on how they perform a customized show for you.

Mіntоn’ѕ Plауhоuѕе, a jаzz сlub іn Harlem, Nеw Yоrk, became thе lаbоrаtоrу fоr these experimental muѕісіаnѕ. Bу 1941, Pаrkеr, Gіllеѕріе, Thеlоnіоuѕ Mоnk, Charlie Chrіѕtіаn, аnd Kenny Clarke wеrе рlауіng rеgulаrlу аt jаm ѕеѕѕіоnѕ thеrе.

Durіng this реrіоd, thеrе wеrе twо mаіn muѕісаl paths fоrgеd. Onе was a nоѕtаlgіс movement thаt rееxаmіnеd thе hоt jаzz оf Nеw Orlеаnѕ. It bесаmе knоwn as Dіxіеlаnd. The other was the new, fоrwаrd looking, еxреrіmеntаl muѕіс that departed from ѕwіng аnd thе muѕіс that рrесеdеd іt. It wаѕ known as bеbор.


On August 1ѕt, 1942, thе Amеrісаn Fеdеrаtіоn оf Muѕісіаnѕ bеgаn a strike against аll mаjоr rесоrdіng соmраnіеѕ because of a dіѕаgrееmеnt over rоуаltу рауmеntѕ. Nо union muѕісіаn соuld record.

Bу thе tіmе the ban оn recording was lifted, Big Bands hаd practically been fоrgоttеn, оr hаd bеgun tо bе thought оf аѕ реrірhеrаl in relation to vocal stars ѕuсh аѕ Frаnk Sіnаtrа and the subsequent emergence of groups like The Rat Pack.

In 1945, thе tеrm ‘mоldу fіg’ was coined to rеfеr to ѕwіng muѕісіаnѕ who were rеluсtаnt to ассерt thаt bеbор wаѕ the new path of jаzz dеvеlорmеnt.

In thе mid 1940ѕ Charlie Pаrkеr began tо dеtеrіоrаtе frоm drug uѕе. Hе wаѕ аdmіttеd to Cаmаrіllо State Hospital аftеr a brеаkdоwn in 1946. Hіѕ ѕtау thеrе іnѕріrеd thе ѕоng “Relaxin’ аt Camarillo.”



In 1947, tenor ѕаxорhоnіѕt Dеxtеr Gоrdоn achieved fаmе for rесоrdіngѕ of “duеlѕ” wіth saxophonist Wаrdеll Grау. Gordon’s vіrtuоѕіtу аnd аggrеѕѕіvе tone аttrасtеd thе аttеntіоn of уоung аltо saxophonist Jоhn Cоltrаnе, who wоuld ѕhоrtlу thеrеаftеr ѕwіtсh tо tenor ѕаxорhоnе.

Sоmе оf thе arrangements were bу a уоung Gіl Evаnѕ, аnd thе rеѕtrаіnеd style of thе muѕіс came tо bе knоwn аѕ сооl jаzz. Thе record, released аlmоѕt a dесаdе lаtеr, in 1957, was саllеd “Birth of thе Cооl”.

Bу the end оf thе 1940ѕ, bebop wаѕ thе ideal among young jаzz musicians. Unlike Swing, Bebop wаѕ untеthеrеd to рорulаr demands. Itѕ primary соnсеrn was musical аdvаnсеmеnt. By the еаrlу 1950’ѕ, it had аlrеаdу spread into nеw streams ѕuсh as Hаrd Bор, Cооl Jazz, аnd Afrо-Cubаn Jazz.

Singing Waiters in Riverside, California

An Amazing Experience:  Singing Waiters LIVE in Riverside, California

Recently, we were privileged to sing a surprise event in Riverside for a very appreciative group of donors and guests at the Double Tree Hotel.  The Amazing Waiters X3-Three Fabulous leading men performed a newly scripted show that featured many subtleties of the group and its staff, bringing just the right touch of personality to the fundraiser Gala.

We set the show in two phases for maximum impact, by creating a rouse that everyone would believe…we blamed this one on the weather (we would tell you but our competition likes to copy what we do).  Later the “Waiters” returned, one by one, creating a one-upman-ship until the rouse turned into a full-blown singing show, featuring Broadway, Jazz, Flamenco and even music by the Beatles!  A fun time was had by all…Especially us!


Here is about 4 minutes of live audio we are happy to post.  We love performing a wide range of music like this show and others we’ve performed.

The First Singing Waiter Act

Singing Waiter History

Jubalaires - Singing Gospel

the first singing waiters?

Singing Waiters have been around for a long time.  Before the novelty acts began in the mid 80’s with The Singing Waiters in Europe, The Jubalaires, a 4-Man Gospel Recording Act during the 1940s laid down traditional 4-part harmony for the world to hear.

Today, The Amazing Waiters come from a long lineage of singing waiter entertainment, taking it to the next level by creating specialized surprise shows that not only can include Singing Waiters but a variety of surprise options for any occasion and theme.


For more information on refreshing surprise entertainment that will have your guests engaged and entertained, call toll free, 855-899-7701 or visit the website We look forward to hearing from you!

Valentine’s Ideas For Guys

After New Year’s, Valentine’s Day is the first major celebrated Holiday of every new year.  This, what once was more religiously related, has become a must for those betrothed (or about to be), defining, redefining, affirming, translating, demonstrating, crying…and let’s not forget, singing.

So, get those flowers and book that last-minute dinner reservation and prepare for love.

So, you are at a loss as to what to do for your significant other this year?  Fear not, The Amazing Waiters have a few ideas for you clueless guys out  there.

  1. Secure a fabulous bottle of wine (we assume you’re both 21, okay?), complete with two nice wine glasses (glass being the operative word) appropriate for white or red.  Look here if you don’t know which glass goes to which…Remember, you’re not in college anymore.
  1. Get something personal and small.  How about an old fashioned thing…a CD of something timeless, Jazz, like Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong, John Coltrane…etc.  No pop or current stuff.  Go Classic or Classical.
  1. Flowers:  since we mentioned it earlier.  A couple of TAW rules.  1. Make sure she’s not allergic to flowers.  2. Hopefully, you’ve paid attention and asked or found out what she loves.
  1. A personal note/card, written on nice stationary in your own handwriting…state what you feel.  Keep it simple and classy.  A little will go a long long way here.
  1. How about an indoor picnic?  We know, unlike California, you cannot go out side and do this (if you are not in southern CA) in February.  Indoor picnic meaning get the gear out, in front of the fireplace, the wine (see above) the crackers (you don’t want to get sloshed too early) and perhaps a video of the beach or a summer meadow looping on the TV screen-kitschy but not trashy.

    romantic fireplace for valentines

    The Amazing Waiters provide Valentine’s ideas for guys.

  1. You could have a friend or a professional chef come to your home and make a romantic dinner.  Yeah.  Some of your friends may not want to do this…hire it done.
  1. Fly to France for dinner.

Wishing you a great Valentine’s Day.

Here are the lyrics to MY FUNNY VALENTINE by Rodgers and Hart:

My funny Valentine, sweet comic Valentine
You make me smile with my heart
Your looks are laughable, UN-photograph-able
Yet, you’re my favorite work of art.

Is your figure less than Greek? Is your mouth a little weak?
When you open it to speak are you smart?
But, don’t change a hair for me, not if you care for me
Stay little valentine, stay, each day is valentine’s day

Is your figure less than Greek? Is your mouth a little weak?
When you open it to speak are you smart?
But, don’t change a hair for me, not if you care for me
Stay little valentine, stay, each day is valentine’s day

Have you ever been to a Casino Night Party?  Craps, Roulette, Black Jack…Vegas-Styled tables, taunting and laughing with friends, family or party guests?  Vegas brought to your event without the hassle of getting to Vegas!  It’s a part of the continuing Old Hollywood trend, with throwback parties like Casino Night.

Get your guests to spend the money

Round and round it goes!

Casino Night Parties are a great way to includes a large spectrum of people from diverse backgrounds in one single activity.  You get many elements of a party all included in this type of party.  Fundraisers in particular love to have Casino Night.  End of Year Parties are also popular with Casino Parties.


Here are some things to consider when planning your own Casino Party.

1. Keep it legal!  No real money is allowed.  Most of the time your guests will get a voucher for a certain amount of dollars which can be exchanged at the tables for chips.  Not potato chips silly….You will want to check with your local/state gaming laws to ensure you are keeping your party within legal parameters.

2.  How many tables will I need?  A recommend 70% table coverage versus the number of guests. Example: If you have a guest list of 100 you should have enough spots for 70 players at any given time.

3. Where do I get Casino Tables?  There are many party rental vendors that specialize in providing casino tables for events just like these.  Many companies are turn-key, offering the complete package so you don’t really have to do anything more than get guests there.  But, of course turn-key sometimes costs more but it saves you hassle.  Convenience.  To find vendors, simply do a Google search typing in “Casino Night Vendors”, or “Casino party supplies” and go from there.

4. Dealers.  You’ll need dealers.  If you don’t go turn-key you can also Google them.  You might need to get creative on finding these.  It is not a good idea to use John in IT or Sally in Food Services because they run a mean Poker Night.  You’re better off to use outside talent that is not known to your guests.

5. CASINO Entertainment.  There are numerous types of entertainment options for Casino Night.  Here are some to consider.

  • RAT PACK ENTERTAINMENT:  Old Hollywood Entertainment, invoking the 60’s Rat Pack vibe with Frank, Sammy and Dean.
  • IMPERSONATORS:  Marlin Monroe, Cher, Elvis.
  • DJ:  Achieve a spectrum of music with a DJ.
  • PAPARAZZI:  As your guests enter the red carpet, have some “photographers” with glitz and glam of yesteryear.
  • PHOTO BOOTH:  Document all those great clothes your guests will be wearing with a photo booth.
  • FLAIR BARTENDER:  Seen the movie “Cocktail” with Tom Cruise?  Have a fancy bartender do a couple of themed drinks with flips and fanciness.
  • EMCEE:  We think an Emcee is a very important part of the night.  It keeps the competition and action going.  He’s the ring leader and motivator for the night.  Especially if you are having a fundraiser, have friendly competition between tables on how much money is being made or have auctions during the betting. A great way to keep the money flowing.
  • JAZZ BAND:  A nice jazz trio is great atmosphere.  You can always add a singer for part of the evening to bring in the Old Hollywood vibe.
  • FANCY LIGHTING:  Why not make it Vegas all the way Baby!
  • BUFFET IS THE WAY TO GO:  If you are having Casino Night, have a Buffet.  This way you can have guests get their food and continue to gamble.  Keep the auctions going and keep the giving going that much longer.


Casino Night with The Amazing Waiters

The Amazing Waiters provide fun Casino Night Styled entertainment.

The Amazing Waiters have some great Old Hollywood and Casino Entertainment options.  Everything from Singing Waiters to fabulous entertainers performing music from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s to keep any party going.  See our website or our direct Old Hollywood link for ideas.

Old Hollywood Entertainment With A Modern Twist

Latest Trend: Old Hollywood

Are we late in labeling it? Old Hollywood has returned! Everywhere we seem to turn, days of yore are popping up. Everywhere from TV with Mad Men, to the resurgence of Rat Pack shows (Vegas) to clothing styles on the Red Carpet. It’s everywhere.

Is the public following or leading this trend? Traditionally, trends are set by media and followed by the general public. But is the tail wagging the dog here?

The Amazing Waiters have a great Rat Pack Show.

Relaxed and Entertaining.

Style Never Goes Out Of Vogue – Permanently
There an old saying, “If I hold on to it long enough, it will come back in style.” (God help us if the feathered back hair style re-emerges) and if you’ve lived long enough in this World, you will see that History does tend to repeat itself, even in fashion.

We have to say, we like Old Hollywood. We like almost everything about it. We even patterned a show after it. The reason. It’s cool. It’s retro and people still love good wholesome entertainment.

Old Hollywood is the epitome of style and class. It’s hard to think of another Era that can rival it. 1927-1963 is generally the accepted span of its hey day. Starting with the end of the Silent Film Era and starting with the film “The Jazz Singer” (1927). Nicely detailed by film theorist, David Bordwell, Old Hollywood was the second boom of American Cinema. The first being Silent Movies. Bordwell’s detailed chronicle is worth some reading if you have a good weekend.

It’s not hard to understand why this type of old school entertainment still is desired today. Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. had it goin’ on!
