Surprise 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!

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!”.

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.

ONE YEAR TOO SOON

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!”  

SINGING WAITER SHOWS SPECIALLY-WRITTEN AND UNIQUE

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!”

ENTERTAINMENT FOR ALL AGES

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. 🙂

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.

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
