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!

Has Glee! Brought Audiences Back To Broadway?

gleek up people.  glee is here to stay

Glee may have changed Broadway forever.

Glee! and it’s bubbly effect on the new Broadway

Every once in a while a TV show comes along that serves as a game changer in the world of television entertainment. This is usually in the form of a show that does not really seem to fit snugly into a specific genre, but which ends up creating a whole new category that subsequent shows try to emulate. Furthermore, it changes the way in which we view other forms of entertainment, often leading fans of said show to seek out something that is in a similar vein, yet which is different in a number of ways.

Such was the impact that Glee! had on the television viewing audience. If you are being totally honest, would you have truly believed that a show featuring a bunch of high school misfits belonging to a glee club would become a success on network television? The vast majority of us would likely have bet on the show failing and being cancelled in a matter of weeks, but it actually went on to capture the imagination of the viewing public, especially among the younger crowd, many of whom quickly identified with the characters portrayed on the show.

There are very few shows, other than the reality variety, that have singing and dancing at their core. While it certainly helped that much of the music being performed on Glee! was current hits done in a very specific style, it was still a surprise that the format took off. What is even more surprising was that it opened up other forms of musical entertainment to a whole new generation, with Broadway musicals perhaps being the biggest benefactor of the Glee! craze. Fans of the show craved more and were prepare to go to other avenues in order to get the entertainment that they loved.

Believe it or not, there are kids out there that have a real interest in the arts, and who would love to act, dance, and sing, but who have felt constrained by peer pressure at the school level. Many of those barriers have been torn down by Glee!, with many schools now adopting new musical programs that mimic those seen on the show. Now that the main barrier has been torn down, younger fans of music and acting are free to discover Broadway singers and shows without fear of being ridiculed when they head back to school.

Scattered among the Broadway standard shows are new musicals that definitely have an appeal that is aimed at a younger demographic. You look at shows like “Rock of Ages,” “Wicked,” and “Once” and you can see that their success is very much dependent on being embraced by a younger audience. The question of whether or not these shows would be the success that they are without the Glee! influence is on that can certainly be argued. What cannot be argued is that the audiences at Broadway shows are now starting to skew a little younger than ever before.

Singing Operatic Arias is like running in the Olympics.

What am I?  No!  Not a Bugs Bunny Skit!  This is an excerpt of  an Operatic Aria.

Aria…what’s that?  An “aria” noun \ˈär-ē-ə\  is a self-contained piece for one voice, with or without orchestral accompaniment, normally part of a larger work.  It’s origin is Italian meaning literally is “atmospheric air” first used in 1723.   And…if Opera is, as we put it in a previous blog post “The Olympics of Singing“, the Operatic Aria (Air) is the 400 Meter Dash.

400 Meters- Opera Singers must pace themselves when singing the Operatic Aria

Opera Arias are the equivalent to a 400 Meter Dash

In fact, if you look at Opera as the Olympic Track events, it would look something like this:

100 METER DASH: The Recitative

200 METER DASH:  Vinch al da vino (Don giovanni)

400 METER DASH:  The “traditional” Operatic Aria

800 METER RUN:  A Donizetti Aria with Cabaletta

1600 METER RUN:  A Wagnerian Aira/Scene

26.2 Mile Marathon:  A Recital Concert Recital defined

Opera Recitlal=Marathon

The Operatic Recital is the equivalent to an Olympic Marathon.

The Operatic Aria is the icing on the cake, the amazing zenith, the Shakespearean Monologue.  It is the ultimate in artistic emotional expression.

Brace yourselves for some Wagner!

The Wagnerian Soprano is known for power and stamina.



The Operatic Cadenza

lots o notes…lots of melisma. Move over Mariah Carey

An Italian Operatic Aria usually ends with some kind of virtuosic passage that leads up to a set of or a single ridiculous high note known as “bravura”  (Basses too) that gives everyone chills (if executed properly).  Here are a few of the greatest Italian Operatic Arias for male voices.



  1. Nessun Dorma
  2. Questa o quella
  3. Una furtiva lagrima
  4. Che gelida manina
  5. E lucevan le stelle”

Oh, and if you were wondering, the opening Figaro’s are from a famous Baritone Operatic Aria from the Comedy, The Barber Of Seville by G. Rossini,  first performed in 1816.  Here, the character Figaro is introduced to the audience, singing about all the things he is and does.

Here it is in Italian for our Italian-Speaking Friends…and those who might know the language.

Try just saying these words…then once you do that, say them as fast as you can, because that’s about as fast as this aria is sung.

Largo al factotum della citta.
Presto a bottega che l’alba e gia.
Ah, che bel vivere, che bel piacere
per un barbiere di qualita!
Ah, bravo Figaro!
Bravo, bravissimo!
Fortunatissimo per verita!
Pronto a far tutto,
la notte e il giorno
sempre d’intorno in giro sta.
Miglior cuccagna per un barbiere,
vita piu nobile, no, non si da.
Rasori e pettini
lancette e forbici,
al mio comando
tutto qui sta.
V’e la risorsa,
poi, de mestiere
colla donnetta… col cavaliere…
Tutti mi chiedono, tutti mi vogliono,
donne, ragazzi, vecchi, fanciulle:
Qua la parruca… Presto la barba…
Qua la sanguigna…
Presto il biglietto…
Qua la parruca, presto la barba,
Presto il biglietto, ehi!
Figaro! Figaro! Figaro!, ecc.
Ahime, che furia!
Ahime, che folla!
Uno alla volta, per carita!
Figaro! Son qua.
Ehi, Figaro! Son qua.
Figaro qua, Figaro la,
Figaro su, Figaro giu,
Pronto prontissimo son come il fumine:
sono il factotum della citta.
Ah, bravo Figaro! Bravo, bravissimo;
a te fortuna non manchera.


Here’s the English Translation of The Largo (from

Handyman of the city.
Early in the workshop I arrive at dawn.
Ah, what a life, what a pleasure
For a barber of quality!
Ah, bravo Figaro!
Bravo, very good!
I am the luckiest, it’s the truth!
Ready for anything,
night and day
I’m always on the move.
Cushier fate for a barber,
A more noble life cannot be found.
Razors and combs
Lancets and scissors,
at my command
everything is here.
Here are the extra tools
then, for business
With the ladies… with the gentlemen…
Everyone asks me, everyone wants me,
women, children, old people, young ones:
Here are the wigs… A quick shave of the beard…
Here are the leeches for bleeding…
The note…
Here are the wigs, a quick shave soon,
The note, hey!
Figaro! Figaro! Figaro!, Etc..
Alas, what frenzy!
Alas, what a crowd!
One at a time, for goodness sake!
Figaro! I’m here.
Hey, Figaro! I’m here.
Figaro here, Figaro there,
Figaro up, Figaro down,
Swifter and swifter I’m like a spark:
I’m the handyman of the city.
Ah, bravo Figaro! Bravo, very good;
Fortunately for you I will not fail.
