Last Minute Entertainment

Last Minute Wedding Entertainment with Singing Waiters

Help!  I need last minute entertainment for my wedding!

As a bride and groom, wedding planner or party planner, this verbalization will force almost anyone affiliated into a cold sweat.

Last week, we received a call from a bride-to-be in Costa Mesa, California, saying those very words.

Choices In Last Minute Entertainment

For whatever reason, these things happen.  And, when it does, it can be a scary situation.  As a person searching for entertainment for one of the most important days in a person’s life, everything becomes amplified 100Xs.  It almost becomes life and death.  Choose incorrectly, and well, it’s documented forever in the wedding photos or worse yet, wedding video.

wedding-entertainment-stress

Having been there hundreds of times (entertaining for other peoples’ wedding receptions), we understand and we were happy to do everything we could to make this particular bride’s special (last minute) day, that much more memorable.

Unique, Fun and Engaging Wedding Entertainment

“Our bride was looking for something unique, fun and engaging…I think we delivered on that”.  In the end, we provided our two amazing singing waiters show, which entertained reception guests and wedding party in a way only The Amazing Waiters can do-through a uniquely-written script, intricately woven with a wide-range of music, which in included Broadway, Jazz (Rat Pack) and Pop (yes, it’s rangy) and it’s what we do best.  “This little gem touched on several musical tastes…including the Rat Pack/Sinatra-styled music which the Father of the Bride loved (he’s Italian!), and Pop music that the newly-weds gravitated to)”.  All-in-all, guests loved the variety and of course, the surprise that we packaged it all up with.

We wish you all the best!

Wedding Reception With Singing Waiters

Surprise Wedding Reception With Singing Waiters

April Fools isn’t just for jokes.  The Amazing Waiters had the distinct pleasure to be a part of April Fool’s this year, just outside of Chicago, IL.  A wedding reception featuring a fab couple that finally decided to tie the knot after being together for several years.

Celebrating their marriage at the lovely Alpine Banquets in Darien, IL, just West of Chicago, Illinois, Andrea and Victor and a couple hundred of their closest friends, gathered…in a most suitable way.

Entertainment That Works With A DJ

Andrea called us several months ago looking for something “different” for their reception. She told us that her and her husband to be had large families of different cultures and thought music delivered in our special way would be perfect since both sides loved music. They decided on having a DJ for the dance hits and a live mariachi band to play as their guests entered the reception area.  She wanted to continue with their music theme and thought that our singing waiters surprise was just the right amount of “unique” she as looking for.  She asked if we could work with their DJ to cut costs on production and we were happy to do so.  Once the logistics were cleared, we proposed our music ideas and then she decided to have us be a part of their special day.

Mariachis in Chicago

Loved the Mariachis.  James looks like he should have been in white as well…

Tailored Music To Fit Musical Tastes

It was great putting the show components together for Andrea and Victor.  They had varied musical tastes so we tried to put together a program that somewhat reflected that. She allowed us to put together a show and we decided on music ranging from Beatles, Rat Pack Jazz, A Capella to Disco.  We loved that fact that her kids loved the movie “Step Brothers”, so we sang a song from that too!  It was pretty much everything AND the kitchen sink!

Customized Surprise Entertainment

As usual, we wove all of the eclectic music with our one-of-a-kind script and performed it during the dinner portion of the evening.  It was great fun!  The guests weren’t sure (as usual) what was going on at the beginning but soon after the third song, they realized that we weren’t just waiters and this wasn’t an April Fools prank, we were waiters that sing (and sometimes dance)!  Chris, one of our Chicago singing waiters is a fabulous dancer and he gave the guests a treat during the Disco song.  He especially loved the little girl in the tutu that decided to do an improvisational dance during his song!  We guess there was more than one dancer on the floor this evening!

Who knew Chris was going to dance this evening? Maybe the wonderful cake inspired him?

Wedding Reception Entertainment For All Ages

All in all, a night to remember for all of us.  We had a great time working with the wait staff and Alice, the wedding coordinator (she was very sweet).  Congratulations to Andrea and Victor!  We’ll see you on your 5th Anniversary Party!

Singing Waiters Entertain in Orange County

SINGING WAITERS ENTERTAIN IN ORANGE COUNTY

Singing Waiters Trio Show in Orange County

We love surprising guests in one of our backyards.   This time, our singing waiters performed in Orange County, California at the amazing 5 Star Pelican Hills Resort.  Every time we’re here, it’s a treat.  The staff is great to work with (we are usually dressed just like them and “work” along side them…carrying the stealthy element of our show to the limit.) and we get to see “old friends” every time we’re there.

A Great Ice-Breaker Idea

This event was a pre-wedding reception that took place the day before the wedding and was a sort of “get to know each other” before we all really party after the wedding kind of thing.  It was very casual.  Elegant but very inviting.   The reception was held on one of their patios right next to the Golf Course, alfresco.

Versatile Singing Waiters Entertainment

This Amazing Waiters show was a three singing waiters surprise show that featured two male and one female performer, posing as Pelican Hills Bistro Staff.   We were a gift by the Father of the Bride who wanted to have something unique and different at this gathering…something that would entertain and engage his guests.  Luckily for us, the surprise feature of our show was just what he had envisioned.  We conferenced with him and his daughter (the Bride-to-be) a couple of times and worked out the details for a surprise show (we were to surprise the Groom-to-be, as well) that included music from our Rat Pack, Italian and Operatic repertoire.  They also thought it best for us to use our own sound system since we were very familiar with it (a nice option if our clients are in Southern California).

The event space was very accommodating and the event/wedding planning staff that provided the décor and ambiance was spot on.

Our show was very well received and, even with some unexpected “live” elements (a guest getting up and dancing with our girl, Kara!) it just made the show that much more memorable for the guests.  See the video!

“You were a huge success…it was exactly what we wanted….”.  It’s always great to hear these words from the people that hire us.  Our Singing Waiters Entertain!

You’re most welcome!

Congratulations you newly-weds.  See you at your 5th anniversary!

In Search of the Best Wedding Entertainment 

The Wedding Bar Keeps Getting Higher

There’s an increasing trend (luckily for us) for the best wedding entertainment. In their struggle to be original, unique and fun, modern brides and grooms are finding it more difficult to present fun forms of wedding reception entertainment for their honored guests. DIY Weddings are all the rage and have been for the last couple of years. Barn weddings,

outdoor weddings, simple weddings, handmade and unique items offered as parting gifts, unique wedding dresses, bridesmaids dresses, even grooms are getting makeovers to accent their special day.

Traditional Wedding Receptions Need A Make-Over

Entertainment options for wedding receptions has been fairly limited. Outside of the traditional DJ, Band, Wedding Singer, Jazz or String Quartet, there are not that many more fun and unique options that one could have at a wedding reception.

The Ultimate Surprise Entertainment Idea

Here comes the ultimate surprise entertainment idea… vocal entertainers that pose as waiters, staff, security guards, chefs…even a long-lost Uncle. Isn’t the best wedding entertainment something your guests would never suspect?  It is the ultimate gift a wedding couple could give their guests.

LGBT / GLBT Weddings Receptions

Alternative weddings from the LGBT community have very much embraced this type of wedding reception entertainment at their unions.  The Amazing Waiters have performed LGBT wedding reception events in New York and Los Angeles and guests have raved  about the uniqueness of our Amazing Waiters surprise shows.

Wide-Spectrum Entertainment

Every Amazing Waiters / Singing Waiters show is personalized for you.  You know your guests.  We know music entertainment.  We take what you give us about your wedding reception guests and write a fun and memorable show that will be designed to engage and entertain with just the right amount of sophistication and class.  Your guests will love the range of music.  We always get positive comments after one our surprise shows saying, “Loved the music”, “you even had the kids engaged (what other act can do that?)”….or our favorite comment, “You made our night!”.

Singing Waiters in Naples, Florida

SINGING WAITERS PERFORM SURPRISE SHOWS ACROSS THE UNITED STATES

Performing across the United States we get to see a lot of places, the insides of hotels, conference rooms, etc.  We also get to meet lots and lots of people along the way.  Recently, we had the privileged to construct a special singing waiters surprise show for a wedding reception in the Naples, Florida area.

Naples, Florida Map

If you’ve never been in this part of the country in the Spring, it’s worth the trip.  There’s a reason why Snow Birds from the “North” reside down there during the cold, blustery Winter months.  It’s lovely.

SINGING WAITERS SHOW IN NAPLES, FLORIDA

Edie is a former Broadway “Baby”, having sung in several theatrical productions in her career and knew what she wanted and how she wanted it.  When she contacted us, she literally auditioned us with numerous questions about our show, our singers, etc.  She was clearly not an “average” client.  As we talked we finally got to singers…singers who might be doing the show…and as chance would have it (or not) we have a couple of well-known Broadway performers on our modest roster in the NY Area…one of which she knew (of) very well.  When his name came up, she immediately wanted to know if he’d be available.  Well, he was and that was that.  Edie, was thrilled.  Not only was she getting a personalized show, she was getting a performer that she knew and had seen on Broadway.  She immediately secured the details (this was 6 months prior) and we were off to the races!

TRAVELING AND MEETING GREAT PEOPLE

As mentioned earlier, we get to meet a lot of people along the way.  We also get to know our Clients pretty well during the process of writing and creating their special show.  This journey was no different…among many things, we learned that Edie’s fiance was a special forces war veteran (retired) and her mother was a former Opera Star with The Metropolitan Opera and she would be at the wedding reception.  We were thrilled.  We immediately wanted to sing, “Nessun Dorma” from Puccini’s Opera, “Turandot” as a sort of homage to her and her career.  It was PERFECT!

SINGING WAITERS SHOW IN NAPLES, FLORIDA IS A PERFECT STORM

With the water and weather perfectly blending, and the Spring taste in the air, we had a great time singing a fabulous surprise Singing Waiters Show for the newly weds. The guests were thrilled and there was much laughter had by all.  There are a few great photos on our website and we hope to post a little video from the ceremony at a later date.

Should we tell them who we really are?

What? You’re really NOT Waiters? That’s right…singing

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE NEWLY-WEDS

Congratulations to the newly weds, Edie and Steven and than you for letting The Amazing Waiters be a part of your special day!

Wedding Reception Surprise

WEDDING RECEPTION SURPRISE

Wedding reception surprises is the latest trend in Wedding Entertainment.  It’s interesting, unexpected, unique and very cool.

The Season of Love is upon us once again

We are now back in “Wedding Season” and what better time to post another fun wedding reception surprise we implemented at the request of the Groom to his Bride on their wedding day.  Now, that’s what we call something special!

This video highlights the singing element of The Amazing Waiters’ Wedding Show and how it can get a little crazy at times.  Watch the video and see how one particular guest reacts when one of our waiters sings to her!

Give The Guests A Wedding Gift

Weddings Receptions are mostly about everyone else.  It’s your celebration but the Wedding Reception is the gift you give to your guests.  Being a part of this elegant wedding in Orange County was a great surprise and gift, not only to the Bride but to all of the guests that attended.  Comments ranged from “Amazing” to “You completely surprised me!”

From Waiter to Entertainer during the Dinner Course

Our carefully-scripted wedding reception shows are designed to give the best impact by starting as waiters (servers) and then seamlessly morphing into entertainers without the guests even realizing they are watching an actual show.  The Dinner Course is the best time for this hoax.  Your guests are expecting entertainment after dinner with a DJ, Band, etc.  Dinner time is traditionally the most “quiet” time of the wedding reception.  We like to change that up a bit.  Being nontraditional in a traditional setting is what makes our shows so fun and entertaining.

Rave Wedding Entertainment Review from our Boston Show

This was so good, we had to share…

This past weekend, The Amazing Waiters were privileged, to surprise BOTH Bride and Groom with a gift from the Mother of the Bride.  Although sometimes risky (when both parties don’t know) to do a wedding reception show like this without either knowing, we were happy to customize this show around and even embracing that with the blessing of the Bride’s Mother.

It was a very cool (although weather-wise it wasn’t) outdoor Bostonian-Styled wedding and reception with the blazers and light pants.  The tables were very elegant outside this hidden stone manor about an hour north of the City Proper.

Sound Check for Wedding Reception in Boston MA.

This show featured James (General Manager of TAW) and Sean (our East Coast TAW Representative), two long time friends and very versed in handling about anything that can get  thrown at them.

The specially written show consisted of inside jokes, dialogue and some fabulous songs that ranged from Broadway, Jazz (Rat Pack) to Opera.  The surprise knocked the newlyweds for a loop and brought them to their feet numerous times during the show.

After the show, the mother of the bride sent a very nice letter that is most worth sharing:

Hi James,

Besides our beautiful daughter and new son in law, the Amazing Waiters stole the show. You were simply extraordinarily amazing and fun. The sad thing the singing was so good we wanted to hear more and more songs. Everyone was surprised and some were so touched by the choice of songs that they choked up.

We made the absolute right choice in hiring you.

Thank you for the happy memories.

Pauline

You are most welcome Pauline!  And, as we said at the wedding, we’ll plan on being there for the Silver Anniversary as well!

Sincerely,

#TAW
