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 Birthday Party with The Amazing Waiters

Trabuco Canyon, California

Having started in Southern California, The Amazing Waiters have constructed a surprise birthday party…or two over the last decade but it never gets boring!

This past weekend, our 2 Amazing Waiters, Ryan and John were asked to surprise our host’s mother on her 80th Birthday.  “She loves Frank Sinatra and the music of the Rat Pack Era”…it’s what she grew up on and I know she would love it so much…it’s going to be my gift to her”.

It was a lovely indoor-outdoor setting for 15 guests on a lovely Fall afternoon in the Hills.  Our fabulous duo set up the intimate sound system and prepared the final details for the surprise.

Our dashing guys filtered into the staff, charming the unsuspecting guests and when the reveal time was near, the guys eased seamlessly into an unforgettable scripted show (that was tailored for the guest of honor, of course) that featured many of the staple signature songs of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and the famed Rat Pack of the 1960’s.

Trained Operatic Singers make smaller events more intimate.

“Being able to sing acoustically was key for this particular event”, stated Ryan.  We couldn’t have brought a bulky sound system with microphones…it would have ruined the intimate feeling for those 16 guests”.  Ryan was correct and that’s why all of our performers have operatic training to not have to rely on microphones, if necessary.

The guest of honor’s friends and relatives loved the show and we did too.  Happy 80th Birthday Barbara!  We hope to sing at your 90th!
