Singing Waiters for the Holidays

Singing Waiters for the Holidays

Holiday Party Entertainment The Way You Want It

Christmas parties are all about gifts, surprises and fun, so it’s only natural to have singing waiters for the Holidays.   The Amazing Waiters were recently in Indianapolis, Indiana for a first…a ladies Tea Party/luncheon with a most gracious hostess and a chef that knocked this ladies party out of the park.

Our First Tea Party

And hopefully it won’t be the last. Stemming from “old school” tea from across the pond, this Americanized version was complete with American Singing Waiters surprising the ladies with a surprise of holiday warmth through song and a few laughs.

Surprises are a two-way street

This was a prime example of our waiters being surprised.  Being the servers of surprise, we often don’t know who many of our guests are or at who’s residence we are performing at.  This was such the case.  Upon arrival we were updated as to where we were…this particular event was at the lovely estate of Cindy Simon Skjodt.  Mrs. Skjodt’s father was the creator of the modern mall (think “The Mall of America” and you’ll be on track), Melvin Simon.  A most lovely home and a perfect setting for a holiday party, our surprise was most pleasant.

Holiday warmth through entertainment and song

As most of our singing waiters shows, our reveal or rather our performance begins from the moment the guests arrive with our two waiters attending to the guests along with the actual catering staff that was on-site.  Serving a few drinks, talking with the guests as a waiter would, the two waiters then segued into their show with some fun deception and planned snafus which added to the realism of the performance, all the while keeping the guests guessing as to what was happening was actually “real”.  The first waiter revealed he could sing with “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year”, an Andy Williams holiday classic which got the attention of the ladies and garnered a most hearty response from them.  The surprise show continued with some fun banter between the two waiters culminating with the duo singing above the guests on the balcony as they were enjoying their tea, singing “My Favorite Things”, from the musical, “Sound of Music“.  Afterwards, of course, we informed the ladies that we were not waiters but entertainers posing as waiters-a gift from the lovely host to her guests.  Happy Holidays!  And, thank you for having us!


Small Party Entertainment Stays Intimate

Many of our smaller parties don’t require large or intrusive production (sound equipment, etc.).  Many times, we are able to bring our own “in-house” sound enhancement which is PERFECT for parties or get-togethers of under 50 guests.  We are always happy to discuss these options for any regional event that may have space requirements if at a private residence, restaurant, or even a small banquet room.  Every amazing waiters show is scale-able and adjustable in regards to timing, length, content and even musical vibe.  Every show is customized.

Singing Waiters in Indianapolis

We’ve been making more and more appearances in the Indianapolis area this past year and enjoy each and every visit.  We look forward to making the trip again very soon.

Surprise Waiters for Six Hundred

Surprise Waiters for Six Hundred

Thank you, Alex!  I’ll take Surprise Waiters for 600…

It this even possible?  Can three performers surprise and entertain six hundred unsuspecting guests effectively?  Why yes.  Of course, we can!  And that’s what our surprise waiters did recently in the awesome city of Indianapolis, Indiana for a great group of independent cable visionaries that were convening on the city for brainstorming and networking sessions.

As we do, when a client decides to have The Amazing Waiters for their event, large or small, we begin gathering information about their party.  Everything from time lines to possible themes and even special VIPs or guests that may be attendance.  Once we have all necessary information, we begin tossing ideas back and forth with the client regarding how and where the special show will happen during the event.  During this phase, we discovered something interesting-something that took us back to our roots…when we entertained guests in Europe many moons ago…

The 3rd Singing Waiter Appears…the trifecta!


Our clients are awesome.  We love it when they have crazy or unorthodox ideas about their event.  We love it when they like to integrate our surprise shows within these fun ideas.  And voila!  This was one of those moments.  Our client wanted to introduce the first course (the soup course) with a parade of waiters marching out, single file and serving the guests.  Our client wanted to know if we, as waiters could perform our surprise show during this time.  And of course, this course was PERFECT because, as mentioned earlier, we used to do this very thing as the original singing waiters act in Europe and it was high time we dusted off one of our signature songs that would be singularly appropriate for this presentation.  Be Our Guest from “Beauty and the Beast”.  We would sing the song while the parade of service staff entered the room with the soup.  PERFECT!

Surprise Waiters can get your attention

It’s hard to get 600 people to stop talking…especially when it’s a lowly waiter at a microphone on a large stage…

But that’s why our client hired us-we specialize in how to get people’s attention.  James, our general manager (and former singer with The Los Angeles Opera), who himself has performed over a thousand singing waiters shows, took 600 boisterous entrepreneurs on a musical journey, while the hotel wait staff seamlessly served the enthusiastic guests.  The presentation ending with a thunderous standing ovation (OK, the end of the song DID include two guys doing the song’s signature kick line).

Just when you think you’ve seen it all…

Our third waiter, a fabulous Soprano, surprises both men with the Broadway hit, “Don’t Rain On My Parade” from the musical Funny Girl, made famous by Barbara Streisand.  Things got crazy from there.  But, we won’t divulge that information as what happens in Indianapolis STAYS in Indianapolis!  Needless to say, our three amazing surprise waiters tirelessly worked the room and hopefully left no one feeling lonely (even in a room of 600 people)!

Here’s a snippet of the sound check.

Thanks for a fabulous time!
