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!

Laguna Beach Party Gets Singing Waiters

Ahhhhh…We just love it when we get to an event and a staff member says that their particular group has difficulty giving attention.  Really…..We love it.  It’s a challenge we have been faced with about every single show we’ve ever done.  Why?  Because The Amazing Waiters, Singing Waiter Show is a surprise!  By that definition, party guests don’t have a clue as to what is going on. Especially when a waiter starts talking from the stage. Why would they pay attention to a waiter?  Well, normally, that would be true.  But our shows are designed to take party guests from 0 to 100 in about 20 Seconds!
This is what happened to a very talkative group of professionals in Laguna Beach this very evening.

Admittedly, the group was VERY chatty.  Lots of networking and that’s a very good thing for you event planners out there.  You want your guests to be engaged, stimulated to network and of course, never, ever bored.  The challenge is how to get those very guests wrangled, directed and moved in a timely manner.  It’s kind of like herding cats.  Never done that, but you get the imagery.

Having done this for well over a decade, there is a formula to getting unsuspecting guests attention quickly and efficiently.  It is not for the faint of heart.  You have to get their attention and then hold it.  Blow it early and you’re dead!  Curtain please!

All Amazing Waiter Shows are specially-written.  This was no different.  Our guests had specific characteristics we were able to draw upon in writing a quick and effective script allowing great music to be woven around.  Our three leading men (The Amazing Waiters X3) took control of the room, and made an already elegant evening, one that will be talked about and we’re sure uploaded, with numerous cell phone cameras and even an Amazing Waiter FIRST,   a selfie with one of the attendees.  Although we didn’t get it, if you see this post, you HAVE to send it to us!!  (You know who you are!).

One of our Singing Waiters actually was more of an MC later in the evening, as after our actual show and the “cat was our of the bag”, singing waiter, John went back to the stage to reintroduce the electronic violinists (our new friends) to play a Rock Cover as a closer!
