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!”.

Best Wedding Entertainment That Won’t Break The Budget

The Amazing Waiters will work with your existing sound equipment, DJ, or Hotel Banquet Room to keep your costs at a minimum and your results at a maximum.  We are adept at performing in small spaces like private homes and small restaurants.  We recently performed one of our singing waiters shows in a small, private room at a Maggiano’s Italian Restaurant in Las Vegas (we will be writing about that fun “Disco” night soon).

For more information or video on how our 1, 2 or 3 Singing Waiters (The Amazing Waiters X3) would be right for you, please visit our wedding page or click here to fill out some brief details about your event needs.  We promise to return your inquiry in 24 hours or less.  Of course, you could always call us at 855-899-7701

Now, if you’re still in the early stages of wedding planning, in fact, if you haven’t even proposed and considering doing a proposal, why not consider a flash mob of singing waiters to make your question end in an exclamation?!

Chicago Singing Waiters Dazzle

Chicago Singing Waiters dazzle at a Chicago Fundraiser

The Amazing Waiters had recent privilege to celebrate Greek Heritage here in Chicago, Illinois recently. Celebrating the Greek City of Tripoli, Greece, the organization gets together one time a year for its annual fundraiser and is always looking for fun and unique entertainment.


Chicago Singing Waiters entertained at a fundraiser for the people of Tripoli, Greece


The President and organizer of this year’s event, Dino, was excited to try to have us this year. “Last year, we tried to make it happen, but our singing waiters were so new in Chicago that we were unable to fulfill the request”, stated James Anest, General director of The Amazing Waiters. “So, we decided to table it until next year…sure enough, I pleased to receive a call from Dino asking if our Chicago Singing Waiters were able to make it happen this year and I said “you bet!” we’re going to make it happen!”  


We were very excited to work on this show for many reasons.  One, it is in our Regional “backyard”, being Singing Waiters in Chicago, but other is much closer to James’ heart….and heritage…a Greek-American himself, he was very excited to put together a fun and entertaining show with a special surprise twist to reflect Greek Heritage as well as the various musical tastes that this dynamic group of people would appreciate. “You guys knocked it out of the park!”, Dino exclaimed. “You hit every age group in the audience and they absolutely loved it. It was great!”

Hard to take photos of the actual show when you’re the surprise entertainment


It especially wonderful watching the younger audience members intrigued interested in what the show was delivering. Singing everything from Broadway, Opera, to Rat Pack-inspired music, made famous by The famed Las Vegas Trio in the 1950’s and 60’s, the diverse show was incredibly successful. To top it all off, James  surprised and entertained the guests by speaking Greek and seamlessly finishing with the Greek classic from Zorba the Greek, “Never On Sunday”, with James and Cassandra, (our latest addition who is also Greek) a Chicago native, singing and clapping along with the guests.  Even our third waiter, Chris who is not Greek had great fun dancing the Greek folk Style. 🙂


With one, two, and three waiters entertainment, our regional branch of The Amazing Waiters, Chicago Singing Waiters offer the most diverse and dynamic customized singing waiters shows in the United States.

Singing Waiters Surprise in Palm Beach, Florida


Always ready for a fun surprise, The Amazing Waiters, the world’s leading Singing Waiters act, tailored a especially-scripted show for unsuspecting guests in West Palm Beach Florida this past month. Our 2 Amazing Waiters show featured two of our leading male performers, posing as waiters and surprising dinner guests at a very elegant dinner event in West Palm Beach.

“We love surprises”, the coordinator of the event mentioned, “This has been so hush-hush, only a few people know that you’re even going to be here”.  


Of course, sometimes the surprise show can be a curse since the guests don’t know that there is a singing performance on the horizon.  Sometimes the guests even ask us to actually be “waiters” and request things like a drink or table service and sometimes if the service isn’t up to par, voicing their issues with us and expect us to take action.  

Singing Waiter Surprise Entertainment for events and small parties.

Your table is waiting for you.


It’s fun to know that in a few minutes our waiters we will be performing a fun and interactive singing show for the very same guests…and the look on their faces is priceless.

This particular event in Palm Beach included music from The Rat Pack era, Italian favorites, Broadway shows (like Chicago) and Light Opera.  

A fun time was had by all and many appreciated the surprise element of our show. Our Singing Waiters are looking forward to a repeat performance, sometime in the very near future with one of our other amazing waiter shows…Maybe a SINGING CHEF?

Thanks a lot, West Palm Beach!  

With thousands of performance is credited to them, The Amazing Waiters are Premier Broadway and Operatic performers, regionally stationed in Los Angeles, California;  Las Vegas, Nevada; Phoenix, Arizona;  Chicago, Illinois and New York City, New York.

For more information on how one of our customized surprise Singing Waiters shows can amaze your guests,  call us at 855-899-7701 or email us here.

Singing Waiters in Naples, Florida


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

the amazing waiters in naples, florida for a surprise wedding reception.

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.

Snow-Birds to Naples, Florida

snow birds to “migrate” to warm places like Naples, Florida to escape the Midwestern Cold.


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!

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!


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, Edie and Steven and than you for letting The Amazing Waiters be a part of your special day!

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!

[embedplusvideo height=”315″ width=”560″ editlink=”” standard=”″ vars=”ytid=Q33qJkMu-hw&width=560&height=315&start=&stop=&rs=w&hd=1&autoplay=0&react=0&chapters=&notes=” id=”ep2199″ /]

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.

The Amazing Waiters performed specialized singing shows across the United States, Canada and Mexico.  Call us today for more information.  You’ll be glad you did. 855-899-7701

50th Birthday Party Ideas

The big 5-0 is here!  The product of the 80’s is now buying products more than ever.  Computer/Tech savvy, cool, in the flow of things and getting his or her second wind in life.  No longer a mid life crisis (that’s for the 60+ crowd), this group is wanting it all…and getting it.

Even though many are grandparents, the 50 year old crowd is hardly feeling like it.  Now, they’re out playing as hard as the 30-somethings and loving life!  So, what do you do for the 50th?  What is out there for the person who deserves a big birthday push into the next fifty?

It’s no secret.  We love a great party.  So, let’s talk party.  And let’s talk about what that Madonna-dancing-Breakfast Club-watching-parachute-pant-wearing honoree might like!


Really…be truthful.  What does this special person like?  Observe…what is their taste?  Are they quirky, classy, fun-loving, quiet, crazy, artsy?…All these things are going to play into what they might like for their birthday.

We don’t know if we can come up with 50 birthday ideas, but we will give you as many ideas as we can muster for you to consider.

So, let’s get started…


A great option for a group.  The surprise birthday party is probably the best idea but the hardest to pull off for the obvious reasons. Depending how the birthday boy is, you might not even be able to hide it for a day.  Remember, you are dealing with a seasoned veteran who has “seen it all”.  So, choose this option carefully.  There are many elements involved and best served if you have a few accomplices to help you achieve your goal.


wine-and-cheese-50th-birthday-partyClassy, fun, intimate and of course, spent with good friends, the honoree will get to laugh, drink and enjoy.  Then later, break out a game of Clue or Scrabble and you’ll even have more fun.


50 years, 5 days.  Have a little gift for each of the four days preceding with the 5th day culminating with the best.


Couples are best served for this one.  Although we’ve heard of “destination birthday parties” in the past.  Why not?  We say, “Go for it!”


Have a 50th Birthday Dinner Party, either hosted at your place or a friends…then of course, hire a professional murder mystery group and have fun!


have a chef at your home for a small birthday partyThis is great with either an intimate dinner for two or a bit larger…you could have this coupled with the murder mystery option or perhaps add surprise element of Singing Waiters that can serve a bit of food and then have fun with the birthday boy singing the fabulous hits of the 80’s! We also like the idea of having the a fake chef (while the real one is actually cooking in the kitchen) talking about the courses but is actually a comedian.


Magic is pretty cool for any birthday party.


Invite your guests (this could be a surprise as well) to a destination restaurant or club for a night of drinks, dinner and laughs.


the crazy mixologistA fun trend is to have your drinks served with flair.  A Mixologist is like a mad scientist working with spirits, aperitifs and mixers…mixing and creating those one-off libations for the birthday boy’s 50th.  A fun time and a fun addition to any amazing party.


Themed parties are so much fun because there is no limit as to what that can be.  But since this is a product of the 80’s and he’s going to be 50, we suggest a western theme, reminiscent of the hit TV Show “Dallas”, 80’s Band Revival (complete with big hair), dress like your favorite 80’s band icon…David Lee Roth, Madonna, etc. You could expand this to include all 80’s style.  Ooooh…is there a comeback planned yet?


They are in the prime of their life.  Lots done, yet lots left to do.  Freeze that moment in time with a great photo or painted portrait.  Splurge.  It’s ok to be vain.  “You probably think this song is about you…”


Rock out till Dawn with hits from Night Ranger, Def Leppard, Quiet Riot!…


Don’t forget, it’s a 50th Birthday Party.  Make the magic number important.  Use the number to identify the number the guests, drinks, a top 50 list, Fifty cool things about the guest of honor.  Fifty chronological photos that begin with child birth to present.


Not a roast in the oven.  Roast the guest of honor.  Allow each person to “roast” the 50th Birthday Boy/Girl for 50 (or even 5) seconds-this depends on your guests and guest of honor.  50 seconds may not sound like that long but it is.


The Amazing Waiters are a premiere live entertainment act, specializing in surprise entertainment world-wide.

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!

3 Amazing Waiters surprie guests in los angeles

“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.
